Sparta Combat League returned on GFL with “SummerBrawl”, a stacked MMA and kickboxing card from the Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado. This event was full speed from bell to bell as these pros and amateurs battled in the cage.

In the main event, in a kickboxing bout, Chris Trammel defeated Brian Scraper via unanimous decision. In the early going, the shorter Trammel scored on the inside with straights and hooks while Scraper was able to land on the outside with kicks. Both men fired shots at one another the whole fight and scored with thundering strikes. Trammel seemed to score in barrages while Scraper was more tactical and landed one punch or kick at a time. In the end, it was the volume of punches landed by Trammel that won him the fight.

In the co-main event, Steve Paprocki (4-1) defeated Erick Kapp (1-3) via guillotine choke in the first round to retain the SCL Heavyweight Title. Kapp used his height advantage early by throwing kicks to keep Paprocki at a distance, but that only lasted so long as Paprocki scored with an overhand right that dropped Kapp. On the ground, Paprocki scored with some huge punches in Kapp’s guard. Kapp was able to scramble back to his knees where Paprocki locked on a guillotine and fell back to the mat. Kapp tapped out almost immediately.

Alonso Garcia defeated Joe Miles via split decision after three tough rounds. Garcia worked several takedowns into the fight, including trip takedowns and once on the ground, Garcia scored with punches from the top. Garcia displayed excellent top control and won the battle in the trenches. Miles was a game opponent and scored with strikes in the standup and knees from close range, but Garcia’s wrestling was the difference.

Sparta Combat League brought down the house once again as they have quickly grabbed a chokehold on Mountain West MMA and this show continued in that tradition. Order “SummerBrawl”, and watch anytime on video on demand only on GFL.

Showdown Fights, the top MMA organization in Utah, presented another night of exciting fights with “SHOWDOWN FIGHTS 14″ on GFL.tv. The premier event is highlighted by a Heavyweight Title fight on an 11-bout card that featured 8 finishes with all of the action coming from the UCCU Center in Orem, Utah. Utah MMA has flown under the radar for over a decade, but Showdown Fights has proven to be in a class of its own for MMA in the Mountain West.

In the main event, with the Showdown Heavyweight Title on the line, Jan Jorgensen (6-0) defeated Ben Fuimaono (13-9-1) via arm triangle choke in the first round to win the inaugural heavyweight title. Fuimaono looked to use his speed advantage in the early going by throwing combos and staying out of the range from Jorgensen. Jorgensen blocked a leg kick and countered with a right hand that dropped Fuimaono. Jorgensen followed Fuimaono to the mat where he locked on an arm triangle.

In a featherweight bout, Clay Collard (13-4) defeated Nick Compton (9-4) via unanimous decision. Collard is the former Showdown Fights Lightweight Champion but dropped down to featherweight to fight at his natural weight and it showed. Collard dominated the action with his wrestling and switched levels when he needed to getting takedowns throughout the fight. Collard is a beast at 145 lb and will be hard to stop because of his ability to win the fight at all levels; wrestling, grappling and striking. Look for Collard to be in another Showdown title fight sooner than later, this time at featherweight.

In a women’s bantamweight bout, DeAnna Bennett (4-0) defeated TUF vet Colleen Schneider (5-4) via rear naked choke in the first round. Bennett remains undefeated with 3 first round finishes and has proven herself to be a top notch fighter. Bennett was strong in the striking game and when it went to the mat, it was to her advantage as well as she got the back of Schneider and was able to sink in the choke, getting the tapout against a proven opponent in a quick but action-packed shootout.

Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to GFL.tv with championship level MMA from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with “CFFC 37″. Pro MMA fighters from around the East Coast competed on this stacked 13-bout card that featured 6 stoppages. The action was fast and furious as these gladiators stepped into the cage and went to battle from the opening bell. CFFC has expanded its stranglehold on Northeast MMA as they continue to pump out one blockbuster show after another.

In the main event, with the CFFC Heavyweight Title on the line, Champion Zu “The 8th Wonder” Anyanwu (7-2) retained his belt as he defeated Keith “Bad News” Bell (5-4-1) via KO in the first round. What made the win sweeter for Anyanwu was that he defeated an opponent in Bell who has previously knocked Anyanwu out in 12 seconds with a high kick back in 2013. Bell started off the match with leg kicks finding his distance as Anyanwu kept his hands high and measured the rhythm of Bell. Bell felt more comfortable with his striking and threw a looping overhand right that was countered by a straight right from Anyanwu that connected flush on the jaw. Bell fell to the canvas where Anyanwu followed up with punches and hammer fists, knocking Bell out. It was a spectacular win for Anyanwu who held on to his title and got a bit of revenge all in one fight.

In the co-main event, Bill “Mr. Perfect” Algeo (6-1) defeated Mike “Popezilla” Pope (2-1) via rear naked choke in the first round. Pope got a quick takedown but Algeo popped back up to his feet as the two struggled against the cage for positional dominance. Pope connected with a nice double leg takedown that put Algeo on his back in the center of the cage. Pope looked like he was setting up a north-south choke, but Algeo scrambled to his feet and got a waist lock takedown of his own and began to land punches from behind Pope. Algeo then went for the choke and locked in a body triangle as Pope was forced to tap out.

Julio Rosario (4-4) defeated Brandon Inskeep (5-9) via arm triangle in the second round. Rosario was out of the cage for over a year but didn’t show any signs of ring rust as his striking looked great and was matched by his ground game. Rosario had a very active guard as he was constantly looking for armbars and triangles. Near the end of the second round, Rosario worked on top from the half guard of Inskeep. Rosario grabbed an arm triangle, but had to fight his way out of the half guard, which he did. Once Rosario moved to the same side as the choke he was applying, that was it as Inskeep was forced to tapout before he went unconscious in a tremendous fight from both men.

Be sure to catch all of the action anytime on VOD as “CFFC 37″ throws down the gauntlet on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv. See the established and rising stars on the East Coast compete in front of some of the most avid fans. Be a part of the excitement and order this iPPV from the GFL Combat Sports Network.

Reading To Rumble 2 Review

DeAlba wins by knockout

By Ryan Remp of the Reading Eagle

In his second fight at Santander Arena, and sixth career bout in the Reading area, local super featherweight sensation Frank DeAlba didn’t need eight rounds to make good on his knockout prediction against Mexico’s Pablo Batres.

As it turned out, he didn’t even need six.

With an energetic crowd of 5,800 fans cheering his every move, the 26-year-old DeAlba (13-1-2, 5 KOs) scored a fifth-round TKO Saturday to win the Universal Boxing Federation’s All-America Super Featherweight title in the main event at Reading Rumble 2, presented by Kings Boxing.

Said DeAlba after the fight, “He was guarding his body really well, so I was just waiting for an opening.”

He found that opening 1:55 into the fifth, landing a viscious, left-handed body blow that sent Batres to the canvas.

The fight was called after Batres (7-10-1) failed to get up before the referee finished his count.

“It feels great right now,” said DeAlba, who was greeted by a rowdy herd of fans that stuck around to congratulate him after exiting the ring. “I’m just blessed and humbled to be in this position.”

DeAlba, unbeaten in his last 15 fights and winner of the last 11, snapped a three-bout winning streak for Batres, who is 7-3-1 in Mexico, but 0-7 on U.S. soil.

Two other Reading fighters, welterweight Pat Kehoe and junior middleweight Miguel Martinez, also fought Saturday in undercard bouts.

The 27-year-old Kehoe (1-1) suffered his first loss in a split decision against Harrisburg’s Danny Lugo, and the 23-year-old Martinez (1-1) lost by way of unanimous decision to Alex Sanchez of Philadelphia.

So what’s next for DeAlba?

There’s nothing definite on the upcoming calendar yet, but he’s looking forward to extending his unbeaten streak to 16 next time out.

Said DeAlba of his immediate future, “Whatever Marshall (Kauffman) has for me next, I’ll be ready to fight.”

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents – Great Knockouts 1 on TCN & CSN Beginning June 30

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)

GFL PRESENTS “GREAT KNOCKOUTS 1” BEGINNING JUNE 30

June 27, 2014

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with the debut of a new combat sports series as GFL unleashes Great Knockouts 1 where all of the top boxing and MMA scraps end in devastating fashion with knockouts.   GFL is proud to present a new variety series on the cutting edge of combat sports dedicated to the best in-ring and in-cage action on display as Great Knockouts 1 comes to Comcast.

Included in the debut show is a battle for the vacant NABA Featherweight Title from the Dover Downs as Cornelius Lock (22-6-2), from Detroit, Michigan takes on William Gonzalez (26-5 with 22 KOs) from Managua, Nicaragua. Lock is a technical fighter and will have to evade the wild and sometimes reckless style of Gonzalez who is intent on making this a dogfight from the very beginning. They will be fighting in a ring, but they could just as well be in a phone booth because there will be punches in bunches from both men. Expect this fight to be action packed until the final bell or until somebody gets knocked out. Don’t blink during this fight.

In MMA action, CFFC Featherweight Champion Scott Heckman (17-4) defends his title against the undefeated Levan Makashvili (7-0). Heckman is an expert grappler with a strong wrestling base, but also likes to throw hands and is dangerous from anywhere in the cage. He is one of the top 145 lb fighters in the world and will continue to come forward no matter what. Heckman is as exciting as they come, and that is why he continues to be a fan favorite wherever he fights. Makashvili is a knockout specialist with an astounding 4 KOs in 7 fights. Makashvili loves to bang and he can end a fight with one punch from either hand. Look for these two to collide in the center of the cage with explosive consequences. Hands will be flying and these two are bound to blow the roof off with their style of fighting.

For the vacant CFFC Lightweight Title, TUF Alum and Bellator veteran Marc Stevens (16-8) battles Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder (6-0). Stevens is a well-rounded fighter who is a triple threat in the sport because of his wrestling, grappling and striking. Stevens is a fighter that likes to push the pace from the opening bell and put his opponent on the defensive. Felder has made a name for himself across the region because of his willingness to throw down with anyone. Felder has a granite chin and packs KO power in both hands. Felder can fight in a phone booth as his game plan never changes as he is always looking for the knockout and crowd pleasing finish. Expect fireworks in this title fight.

BAMMA USA jumps into the fold with Strikeforce vet Paul Song (2-1) versus Greg Parker (3-0) at “Badbeat 12”. Song has found early success in his career even getting to fight for one of the premier MMA organizations in history, Strikeforce. Look for Song to use his grappling advantage and get the fight to the mat where he can use his ground and pound. For the undefeated Parker, he is no stranger to early finishes as he has defeated all of his previous opponents before the third round. Look for these two to mix it up and have an explosive fight.

Air times are listed below:

The Comcast Network (TCN) (all zones): Monday, June 30 at 7:00pm ET
