To start out the night Mike Russo who had been training for a single fight was asked to compete in an 8 man tournament and of course he excepted. As for Jason Dent he was set to fight in the Co-Main Event of the evening against Powerhouse Antoine Skinner, this fight was to be a Pro bout. Now on to the results you have been waiting for. In Mike "The Bull" Russo's Amateur MMA caged fight debut he was nothing less than dominant. The fight consisted of Mike landing a couple of nice leg kicks followed by a good body kick which was caught by his opponent. Mikes opponent next tried to hoist Mike into the air to slam him but Mike locked him in a nice Guillotine choke and wrapped his opponent with his legs preventing the slam from taking place. Naturally the fight proceeded to ground where Mike's opponent was able to muscle out of the choke only to get coaught by a Triangle choke in which Mike made him tap out but unfortunately the tap happened at the same time as the bell. So on to round two where Mike was able to out clinch his opponent and put him to the fence where Mike would land the best KO of the night. The KO came by way of a Knee to the face as Mike's opponent was trying to take him down. Mike was then set to advance to the semi-finals.In Mike's next match he was doing fairly well avoiding takedowns in the first round. In the second round Mike got taken down but was looking good working for submissions until he got caught by a knee while putting an armbar on his opponent. The fight was stopped by the Referee. The knee rocked Mike a little and he was not able to recover quick enough before he got hit with two more of them. At least he got to dish out some pain before recieving some. In the Co-Main event of the evening Jason Dent got beat by Antoine Skinner via decision. The fight consisted of Jason winning on the feet every round before getting taken down by the much stonger Skinner. Antoine actually picked Jason up over his head on at least three occasions and slammed him to the floor. The slams looked pretty but did not phase Jason as he tried to work for Submission after Submission and came close to securing a Triangle Choke before the bell sounded the end of round two. The majority of this fight took place on the ground where Antoine scored some nice elbow shots on Jason from time to time. Jason was able to neutralize any chance of Antoine finishing him with any strike or submission. The decision was a fair one in the fact that Skinner was able to keep the fight where he wanted it and landed some decent strikes on the ground. You win some, you lose some. Mike and I are looking foward to our next Fights on September 13th which will be MMA caged fights also. Personally I will be looking for a little redemption. See everyone at class.
