To celebrate Combat Games’ 50th MMA event, the promotion will be hosting a can’t miss 8- man tournament with over $10,000 in prize money, the initial match ups that were drawn last Wednesday night.

The tournament winner will hold the Combat Games’ Bantamweight title.

Each of these initial bouts consists of a modified 2 x 5min rounds with a sudden death round just as you see in TUF. The winners of these four bouts will then face each other approximately 1 hour later after we do another 3 non-tournament bouts. I believe they will be matched based on their initial seeding/ranking.

The winners of the round 2 bouts (same format) will then face each approximately 1 hour or so after we do another 4 non-tournament bouts. The final championship bout will be the full 3 x 5min rounds for the title and the cash.

The event will be held at the Snoqualmie Casino with live MMA action outdoors in the Mountain View Plaza, and can be streamed LIVE on GFL – Click here to watch the event on GFL.

XCC 25 – WATCH THE FIGHTS AND HIGHLIGHTS
Alexandre Bezerra v Dimitre Ivy  – MAIN EVENT
The main event saw Alexandre Bezerra (Training facility: G-13 BJJ) use a rear naked choke hold to defeat Dimitre Ivy (Texas Powerhouse Gym) in the first round. The battle of 145-pounders ended a raucous night of Friday fights in the southeastern section of the state. Bezerra (19-4) is a nine-time Bellator veteran and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt. He’s also a former Cage Fury Fighting Championships Featherweight Champion.

BJ Young v William Dill – Co-Main
After a ferocious first round, BJ Young (Ricardo Almeida BJJ) applied a rear naked choke in the second round to defeat William Dill (Martinez BJJ), thereby capturing the XCC Featherweight Championship belt.
Jack Cordero v Joe Schick 
Another professional bout (155-pounds) saw Jack Cordero (Modern Martial Arts) defeat Joe Schick (Dante Rivera BJJ) in the second round through a triangle choke tapout. Cordero had overcome a fierce first round when Schick drew significant blood.
When asked how he felt after the match Cordero said, “I’m alive and I won.” That statement captured the intense atmosphere in the arena, as Mixed Martial Arts continues to expand its reach in Pennsylvania and around the world.
Troy Wittman v Justin Lesko
Troy Wittman (Premiere Fight Center) defeated Justin Lesko (Revolution Academy) by technical knockout (TKO) in the first round in an additional pro bout (155 pounds). This fight rivaled the amateur contest that was deemed ‘Fight of the Evening’ by the judges on the seven-bout undercard.

UFC fighters: Frankie Perez, Frankie Edgar, Dante Rivera, Wilson Reis, and Matt Rizzo, were introduced to the crowd in between matches from inside the cage at the best MMA event in PA this weekend.

Scott Clymer v Jerome Klumb
(155 pounds) Scott Clymer (Renzo Gracie PA) defeated Jerome Klumb (Kioto BJJ) in a unanimous decision (29-28 on all judge’s scorecards). Terrific action by both fighters was seen in the second round, but Clymer’s sheer will to win earned him XCC honors in addition to his victory.
Andrew Smith v Thaigo Brito
In other action: (135 pounds) Andrew Smith (Modern Martial Arts) applied a rear naked choke in the first round to defeat Thaigo Brito (G 13 BJJ).
Cody Russell v Josh Sachetti
(155-pound contests) Cody Russell (Balance Studios) applied vicious blows to Josh Sachetti’s (Dauntless MMA) face and eventually beat him by unanimous decision (30-27 on all scorecards); And, a series of reverse pin attempts were used by each fighter, but Vinny Oristaglio (UFC Gym, Springfield) defeated Craig Alexander (Tiger Schulman’s MMA) by unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28).
Hakief Phillips v Shane LaRocca
(160 pounds) Back-and-forth action peppered the first two rounds, before Hakief Phillips (Fight Firm) defeated Shane LaRocca (Daddis Fight Camps) by unanimous decision (30-27 on all judge’s scorecards).
Russell Korbul v Michael Ford
(205 pounds) Russell Korbul (Gracie New Jersey) used a North-South choke to defeat Michael Ford (Stay Fly Muay Thai) in the second round.

IT Fight Series 46: Shough, Edwards, Gionti and Urban Take Home Titles – Watch the Fights and Highlights

IT Fight Series 46 was a great night of fights. Highlighted by Aaron Bush Wins by Guillotine, Shough by TKO and Cook by Rear Naked Chock. CLICK HERE TO WATCH FIGHTS AND HIGHLIGHTS

Paul Shough v Isaac Hook: Heavyweight Title Fight

The first of four titles on the line, Shough wasted little time finding his groove. Paul Shough (5-1) entered his heavyweight title defense with Isaac Hook (5-3) with something to prove. Little did we know that he would be on a warpath of destruction. From the start, the heavyweight champion was able to connect with strike after strike landing what seemed like every attempt. His opponent Hook wasn’t without connecting shots. He too landed some clean combinations, but it failed in comparison to that of Shough.

Before the close of the opening round, referee Jerry Poe had to stop the fight. He called the doctor into the cage to check out the hematoma swelling over the left eye of Hook. It formed early on in the round after Shough was able to connect with numerous blows. The fight resumed and the Iron Tiger Fight Team competitor went right back to work landing more shots before the round came to an end.

Moments into the second the audience heard the crack that would silence the entire venue. Attempting a kick, Hook was checked by the shin of Shough. At first, Hook planted his right foot, and all seemed well. He went to move readjusting his foot placement, and the next thing we see is Hook buckling as his leg gave way. The fight was immediately called off, and Hook was stretchered out of the arena and to the hospital.

It was the first title defense for Shough after he won the title when he successfully submitted Cody Kelley at IT Fight Series 40.

Adli Ewards v Mark Carosella: Featherweight Title

Adli Edwards (8-1) earned the unanimous decision win over Mark Carosella (6-1) to become the new amateur featherweight champion. It is the second title for the Ronin Training Center product. He captured the RFO featherweight title last year after he defeated Rich Cantolina.

The match-up between the two featherweights went back and forth with Adli getting the better of the two on feet while the then champion faired much better on the ground.

Along with his new status as featherweight champion, Edwards extends his winning streak to three while also handing Carosella his first defeat.

Nikolai Gionti v Floyd Cisco:  Flyweight Title

Undefeated Nikolai Gionti (6-0) defeated former title contender Floyd Cisco (4-4). The GriffonRawl fighter was able to maintain composure throughout the fight after he was failed to submit Cisco multiple times.

Patience paid off for Gionti as he was finally able to secure the submission midway through the final round. The victory celebration was short lived however as current IT Fight Series flyweight champion Joe Pimentel came into the cage.

The announcer informed the crowd that the two champions would square off at a future date to unify the title. With the next event just over two months away it gives enough time for Gionti to recover from this fight and Pimentel from injury.

Logan Urban v Caleb Frasher: Welterweight Title

In the fourth amateur title fight of the night, two undefeated fighters in Logan Urban (5-0) and Caleb Frasher (4-1) met in the cage for the vacant welterweight championship.

The fight started off but after Urban proved to be too much for Frasher to handle so he tried to take it to the ground. Urban fell into the trap on several occasions. His corner instructed him to get back to his feet after Frasher attempted several submissions.

After wearing himself out in the earlier rounds, Frasher gassed himself out in the later rounds of the fight. Urban took advantage and was able to grind Frasher to capture his first amateur title.
