Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 2.31.15 PMMain Event: James Terry vs. Buddy Wallace

According to MMA Mania, the main event at CFC 2 was touted as one of the top-five fights toScreen Shot 2016-05-02 at 2.30.01 PM tune-in to on GFL over the weekend, nor did they disappoint. The fighters were both hard nosed welterweight gladiators.  In the end, Terry tallied a tad more offense and control, hence earning the unanimous decision victory.

James Terry def. Buddy Wallace by way of unanimous decision.

Roy Boughton def. CJ Leveque in round 1 (:41) by way of arm lock.

Over a quarter-ton of body mass collided when Roy Boughton faced CJ Leveque in the super heavyweight division. Leveque outweighed Boughton by forty pounds, but that didn’t freeze Boughton from launching his attack without hesitation. Moments after the referee’s orders to begin round one, Boughton, with the finesse of an atomweight, dragged Leveque to the canvas, laced one of Leveque’s arms in his legs, and manipulated the joints to hyperextend, forcing Leveque to tapout.

Myron Smith def. Amir Lacy by way of split decision.

lacy and smith fotnWhen Myron Smith stood across from Amir Lacy, it looked like a fire hydrant and a hose were going to sync up in the middle of the apron. Smith, a pro since 2013 with a snarl hardened long before, attempted to close the space and pressure Lacy, but Lacy, the youngster with scar-free skin in his professional debut, maintained the demeanor of a veteran while keeping Smith at the end of his punches and kicks. If the fight went to the ground, the grappling of Smith and Lacy nullified any attempts to contort the other into a pretzel. After fifteen minutes of tit-for-tat trade-offs, the judges rendered a split decision in favor of Smith.

Dwight Grant def. Jordan Williams in round 1 (2:47) by way of KO.

Dwight Grant collected two bonuses with half a round’s worth of work after defeating Jordandwight grant Williams. Packing dynamite in his hands, Grant opened the first round with a left hook that pulled the rug out from Williams’ feet. Williams grew from the ground like a seedling, though, still dazed, he quickly became target practice. One more flush punch from Grant, and Williams checked out

CLICK HERE TO WATCH A REPLAY OF THE FIGHTS.

Canada’s longest running promotion Rumble in the Cage  held its 52nd event this weekend from Lethbridge, Alberta.  It was an exciting night of fights with 9 of the 13 fights ending with finishes, 8 by TKO.   In the main event Lee Mein squared off with Derek Daku in a Heavyweight battle of the promoters. In his 2 amateur wins before turning pro Daku won by TKO both times in the first round. This time it was Mein, the 50 something promoter who finished Daku by TKO strikes in the First Round. A great win for Lee Mein.

In another exciting pro bout Maged Hammo defeated Brent Harvie by TKO (Spinning Back Fist and Punches). If you haven’t see this KO its well worth the price of admission to check it out as you will not see that type of finish often.

The Co-main event featured Derek Boyle vs  Taki Uluilakepa in a Welterweight. Both fighters have spent a lot of time in the cage with 43 fights between them.  Each fighter is coming of a decision loss and both needed a win to get back on track. Both fighters have had wining and losing streaks during his career – in this one Uluilakepa outlasted Boyle.
