Top 5 Fights #2 – Boser v Yager: Unified MMA 28

September 30, 2016 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: MMA News 

Tanner Boser vs Joey Yager – Unified MMA 28

Unified MMA Heavyweight Champ Tanner Boser is out to prove he is UFC ready this weekend when he defends his crown against the uber tough Joey Yager.

Boser, the 25-year old Canadian prospect, is 10-2 in his pro career, having victories over UFC veteran Tim Hague, and MMA journeyman Tony Lopez. “The Bulldozer” has proven he can finish fights with six knockouts and two submissions, while also showcasing his stamina in his 25 minute war against Lopez this past June.

While the Canadian has certainly had his setbacks, it is clear he has the talent to compete at the sport’s highest level, and this weekend’s battle is an absolute must win if he hopes to join UFC’s roster.

Standing in his way will be Joey Yager, a 34 year old behemoth from Arizona that really has no business competing against a young stud like Boser. “Yagerbombz” is far from the prolific finisher Boser is, taking home only three finish victories in 11 career wins.

In his career, Yager has fought some notable names, and has lost to every single one of them. Brandon Halsey, Clifford Starks, and Marcus Sursa have all defeated Yager in the last three years. To his credit, the Heavyweight has defeated Tony Lopez in back to back impressive performances.

In all honesty, this should be a showcase title defense for Boser where he makes his statement to UFC brass that he is ready for the limelight. Will he fold under pressure, or come out victorious?

Top 5 Fights #3 – Dawson v Plazola: KC Fighting Alliance

Grant Dawson vs Mike Plazola – KC Fighting Alliance

KC Fighting Alliance will “Fight For The Cure” on Saturday night in Missouri, and fight fans will be treated to a stacked card featuring some very intriguing bouts and prospects.

In the main event of the evening, Lightweight prospect Grant Dawson will look to prove he is ready for the big show when he takes on late replacement Mike Plazola for the KCFA 155 pound title.

Dawson, a Nebraska native, is 10-1 in his professional MMA career, with an additional seven submission victories in his impressive amateur career. “The Prophet” is a finishing machine, having won all 10 of his bouts via knockout or submission.

At one point, Dawson had 14 straight victories via submission from his Amateur career into the start of his professional career. Suddenly, the grappling aficionado decided to keep his next few fights on the feet, which led to three impressive KO’s, but also saw him take his first knockout loss.

Dawson was initially slated to take on Nick Rhoads in what would have been an exceptional fight, but 12-5 Mike Plazola has decided to step in on very short notice to take a crack at Dawson and the chance at becoming the 155 pound champ.

Plazola was born in California, but fights out of Iowa. A natural 145’er, Plazola will be the smaller man inside the cage, but he won’t have to cut any weight heading into the title fight.

“Plazilla” has had a strange pro MMA career thus far. After five straight finish victories to kick off his promising career, Plazola lost four straight fights via submission, including losses to UFC veteran Marcus LeVesseur and Bellator veteran Brandon Girtz. Since then, Plazola has gone 7-1 with all of his victories being violent finishes.

Plazola’s five losses all came via submission, and with Dawson earning 14 over his career thus far, you can expect “Plazilla” to try to keep this fight on the feet. Even if he does, Dawson has proved he has the power to put his opponents away in devastating fashion.

This is Dawson’s fight to lose, but Plazola is most certainly a live dog. Expect to see a barnburner of a fight, capped off with a savage finish that will likely make GFL’s Top 5 highlights next week.

Top 5 Fights #4 – Obando v Perez: Cage Combat 26

Francisco Obando vs Dominick Perez – Cage Combat 26

Undefeated Flyweights battle for the Cage Combat title this weekend, and you can bet UFC brass will be keeping a close eye on the winner of this bout as a potential addition to UFC’s Flyweight ranks.

Francisco Obando and Dominick Perez both fight out of Texas, and both bring a 3-0 record into the cage on Saturday night. In a combined six fights, both men have only been able to accrue one finish each, but you can bet they will look to make a statement in their first title fight.

Obando heads into the fight with a three inch height advantage, towering over most Flyweights at 5’9. The 24 year old is coming off a hard fought decision victory over Dequette Reed at Cage Combat 25 back in August, and will look to make it four in a row on Saturday night.

As for Perez, the aspiring prospect has been trying to replicate his success in his amateur debut that led to a beautiful knockout victory, but two hard fought decision victories have given the 24-year old a ton of confidence heading into his first title bout.

This fight may lack bad blood, but it certainly doesn’t fall short of intrigue. The Flyweight division across MMA is starving for challengers, so a pair of undefeated amateurs going to war on Texas should be on everyone’s radar.

I wouldn’t expect a finish, but you can expect a hard fought battle that should leave fans on the edge of their seat.

Top 6 Fights: #2 – Jeremy Spoon vs. Johnnie Roades

Fists of Fury VII Jeremy “Spooner” Spoon v Johnnie Roades

In the main event Chickasha, Oklahoma’s Jeremy “Spooner” Spoon takes on Johnnie Roades of Kansas City, MO for the Fists of Fury 145 lbs featherweight Title. Spoon has had a storied career winning his first 8 pro fights before being called up to Bellator, where he received his first national exposure when he handed Jerrod Sanders his first professional defeat at Bellator 37. Spoon went on to fight in Bellator’s season six and seven quarter finals losing to future champions Daniel Mason-Straus and Mike Richman. In amassing his 18-3 record he has won the featherweight titles at SCS, KOTC and Bricktown Brawl. Spoon has won 6 of his last 7 bouts, his last loss being a split decision loss to UFC vet Ryan Roberts who was defending his Victory FC lightweight belt.

Spoon a collegiate wrestling champion for the state of Oklahoma has had an easy transition to MMA, having submitted opponents 11 times in his 18 wins. If not for recent injuries many believe he would be fighting in the UFC today.  He is one of the top featherweights in the country and with a strong victory this weekend he could be fighting at the next level in his next fight.

Spoon’s opponent Johnnie Roades has his own win streak going, having won 7 in a row, finishing all but 1 of those opponents. Roades has already fought 6 times in 2016, with this fight being his 7th in less than 9 months. This says a lot about Roades’ skill and durability. In a battle of Oklahoma v Missouri the 31 year old Spoon seems to be catching 27 year old Roades as he is peaking, which will make for a very tough and dangerous fight.  If Spoon keeps to his strengths he has the experience to beat the aggressive Roades, however, if Spoon has a weakness it has been when he has been caught with a solid kick or punch that has put him on his back.
