If Dana White, Nick the Tooth, and Matt Serra came to Atlantic City “Looking for a fight” they choose the right event to attend. Ring of Combat 53 not only delivered to their star-studded audience but raised the bar for future MMA cards. Each fighter gave his all hoping to catch the eye of the UFC’s President, and what resulted was arguably the event of the year.

In the first of two title fights, Jonathan “Devastator” Delbrugge took on Whitney “Da Bully” Francois. Early in the fight Francois made use of his size and superior striking. After eating some damaging strikes, Delbrugge shot in and landed the takedown. He calmly passed guard and postured up in mount. The “Devastator” rained down blows until Francois gave up his back. Delbrugge quickly snatched the rear naked choke and established himself as the new Welterweight champion. 

Jonathan “Devastator” Delbrugge def. Whitney “Da Bully” Francois via RNC at 3:39 of the 1st round. 

The next exciting matchup of the night was between Bradley “Featherstone” Desir and Eddie Lenochi. They both rushed to the center with Lenochi taking the lead early on. Desir caught him with a huge front kick, before Lenochi was followed to the ground, eating some frantic punches before he scrambled and got to his feet. Both men exchanged blows with ill intent, but it was Lenochi who broke up the action with a nice takedown. Desir used the opportunity to show off his submission game with an armbar, but the attempt was shook off. Lenochi was still able to retain top control, landing big punches in the process. When Desir finally made it it to his feet, he succumbed to another take down just moments before the round ended.

As the second round began, Desir opened up and started to find a home for his hands. Lenochi found himself taking damage on the ground, but somehow got back up hoping to regroup. Desir didn’t let up and Lenochi crumbled to the mat. He celebrated as the crowd called for Dana’s attention. 

Bradly “Featherstone” Desir def Eddie Lenochi via TKO at 1:41 of the second round. 

In the last title fight of the evening, Randy “Rude Boy” Brown took on Robert Plotkin. Brown started the match strong with a lead front kick right to the face of his opponent. Plotkin tried to even the score but narrowly missed with multiple head kicks. Both men held back nothing in their technical war. Plotkin attempted to put Brown’s back against the cage but found himself there instead. After a takedown and some brutal ground and pound by Brown, Plotkin was able to escape to his feet. The heated battle continued until Brown caught Plotkin with a fight ending knee. Again the crowd chanted for Dana’s attention. The UFC seems a natural progression for this truly talented and undefeated Welterweight Champion. 

Randy “Rude Boy” Brown (6-0) def Robert Plotkin (1-2) via TKO at 4:23 of the 1st round.

Last but not least, was Elijah “The Hero” Harshbarger vs. Sidney “Da Gun” Outlaw. In what seemed like an automatic brawl both men swung hoping for a highlight reel KO. Outlaw caved and shot in for the takedown but found himself in his opponent’s guillotine choke.

Elijah “The Hero” Harshbarger def Sidney “Da Gun” Outlaw via Guillotine in just :46 of the 1st round.

At the newly expanded and renovated Silver Eagle Group in front of a huge crowd of roaring fight fans, George Billy will enter the Cage against Todd Holshouser for a chance to battle for the Flyweight Championship. These incredibly tough and talented fighters are two of the area’s top Flyweight prospects.

Billy, was a former VA high school state champ is now a top MMA prospect. He is highly skilled in all disciplines of MMA but is an outstanding wrestler that was tough to find an opponent for. He trains with local Professional MMA fighter Brent Hess in Bailey’s Crossroads, VA.

His worthy adversary, the very tough Todd Holshouser, is a highly disciplined and well-rounded fighter. He is coached by the very well respected David Morris in Charlottesville, VA.

The fight card for March 21st will also feature three additional and exciting Championship Title matches.

In the Light Heavyweight division, Middleweight Champ Scott Noble of Ground Control will go for a Title in a SECOND weightclass against, Mike Desantos of Freedom MMA. Scott has the notoriety of being the fighter with “The Head Kick Hear ‘Round the World” as we call it. Scott delivered a 7 second Head Kick KO to Francis Grant in our event in December 2012 that is still popular today, including being voted “KO of the Week” on cagepotato.com, “Best Head Kick KO of All Time” on worldstarhiphop.com and has been seen by millions around the world.

Karma Muay Thai – Perilous Champions Review

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MuayThai/Karma-Muay-Thai-Presents–Perilous-Champions/2852

Karma Muay Thai debuted on GFL.tv with “Perilous Champions” from Wynnum, Queensland, Australia. The night was highlighted by a hotly anticipated main event that showcased some true grit and determination in an all-out battle.

In the main event, for the WKBF Light Welterweight QLD Title, Paul Martin defeated Ryan MacDonald via TKO in the third round. This was a wild fight as both men scored with bone cracking strikes. Martin is an old-style fighter who loves to come full force at his opponents and he did that from the opening bell. The shorter, stockier Martin was able to close the distance and score with nice combos on the inside while MacDonald looked to clinch to stop the attack of Martin. Martin pressed the pace from beginning to end. Early in the fight, MacDonald did a nice job of trading knees in the clinch and used his size advantage to lean on the smaller Martin and get the better of him in the exchanges. When action broke free, both traded led kicks and sunk thundering shins into each other causing damage that will be felt for days. Martin connected with a brutal body kick that dropped MacDonald before the end of the first round. There was more clinching and knees in the second and third round with Martin once again dropping MacDonald in the corner with knees from the clinch. When action resumed Martin followed up with an overhand right and knee up the middle that caught MacDonald on the jaw and put him down for good. It was a great fight by two rising prospect in the light welterweight division.

In the co-main event, Manu Urlich defeated Brett Rawlings via decision. In the first two rounds, Urlich used his height and reach advantage when he scored with knees and kicks from a distance. Rawlings tried to grab the leg of Urlich and toss him to the ground, but Urlich was very quick on his feet and managed to escape. Urlich was very accurate and the aggressor while Rawlings fired off with quick counters, but Urlich got the better of the exchanges for most of the fight. In the third round, Urlich used his height advantage once again by connecting with knees to the midsection and dropping Rawlings in the corner. Rawlings got up and scored with an overhand right, before he was dropped again by knees and elbows. Rawlings again got to his feet and came forward, landing a spinning back elbow as Urlich followed up with one of his own that barely missed. Both men continued to dig deep and went at each other in the clinch fighting until the final bell. Both of these young gladiators deserve a lot of credit as Urlich showed off a great technical skill set, while Rawlings showed off a huge heart and grit and together they put on a heck of a brawl.

If you love the art of striking, there is no better iPPV for you to order than the “Perilous Champions”. Karma Muay Thai always puts on great shows and this event will up the ante of top level Muay Thai. Order now.

For the 161lb Championshp, Cesar Balmaceda (4-1) battles Juan Galarza (5-1). Balmaceda is a well-rounded fighter with solid wrestling and grappling and high volume striking and looks to defend his AFL title once again. Balmaceda can end a fight with either hand and will be looking to throw leather from the opening bell. These two athletes will go full throttle in their matchup as gold is on the line. Galarza is also a strong wrestler and can usually get the fight to the mat whenever he wants to. Galarza is a submission master with 4 wins coming via tapout. Galarza has KO power in both hands and will look to make this a shootout from the opening bell.

Egbert is a beast in the cage as he has been able to impose his will on his opponents round after round. Egbert has KO power in both hands and lets them fly early and often. Egbert is also a durable wrestler with strong takedowns and top control. Egbert will be cutting down from heavyweight for this fight so he should have a strength advantage when the cage door closes.

Travis Spadafora (3-4) fights Tyler Feist (2-3) in what is sure to be a barnburner. Spadafora has a 47 second win via guillotine choke and has shown an ability to steal the show, because of his fighting style.
