    Troy Worthen defeats Mark Fairtex Abeldaro via unanimous decision (mixed martial arts – bantamweight) 

    2/28/2020 11:59:44 AM


    Worthen quickly took command with a head kick, which sent his rival backwards to the Circle Wall. The American followed with several knees to soften “Tyson” in the clinch in an attempt to take him down to the canvas.

    Abelardo got back to his feet, but the NCWA Wrestling Champion continued to pile on the pressure and tied him up against the Circle Wall.

    They broke off and Abelardo let loose with the heavy artillery just moments before the bell rung to end the contest.

    2/28/2020 11:59:23 AM


    The contest continued on the feet as each man tried to test the other with kicks and quick jabs.

    Worthen stung his rival with a blistering kick to the ribs, but Abelardo maintained his stance in the center of the Circle.  

    An exchange of strikes ensued, but neither bantamweight could cleanly connect. Worthen scored again with another high kick, but “Tyson” was unfazed.

    “Pretty Boy” took down Abelardo after a huge single-leg takedown, but the OWS Contract winner was able to pop back to his feet.

    While in the clinch, Worthen snuck a few clean hands and elbows to the face, and they reset to the center of the Circle in the closing moments of the second round.

    2/28/2020 11:52:29 AM


    The feeling out process dissipated quickly as Worthen opened things with a high kick and Abelardo returned with a roundhouse.

    “Tyson” continued to head hunt, stringing together a few combinations that tagged his American rival.

    Worthen was game to trade with his New Zealand opponent, but the power behind Abelardo’s fists had him quickly back on the defense.

    "Pretty Boy" eventually launched a left head kick that dropped “Tyson” briefly, but the Fairtex representative recovered quickly.

    The Evolve representative then got the single-leg takedown and finally had Abelardo’s back against the Circle Wall, but struggled to get the rear-naked choke locked up. The round ended moments after.

    Abelardo told that his pressure will be too much for Worthen. Do you agree with “Tyson?”

    Fireworks are guaranteed when Troy “Pretty Boy” Worthen and Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo clash in this bantamweight affair.

    Honorio Banario defeats Shannon Wiratchai via split decision (mixed martial arts – featherweight)

    2/28/2020 11:34:42 AM
    It was Banario who opened the third round with kicks as he went low with outside kicks. Wiratchai finally responded with a heavy left kick, and "The Rock" immediately closed the distance to clinch once more. Banario attempted a trip takedown, but Wiratchai defended and generated space to escape.
    The Thai attempted to push the pace and land strikes, but the Team Lakay product's defense allowed him to avoid catching the heaviest blows. "OneShin" found more success with his punches. Wiratchai looked more comfortable and landed a left hand, but as he did, the Filipino shot in and secured another takedown.
    Wiratchai got back to his feet quickly as he kept a high pace in the third round. However, he went back to his left kick, which Banario had been able to time well for yet another takedown. "The Rock" closed out the final round on top once again.
    2/28/2020 11:33:15 AM
    Wiratchai opened the second round by going back to his heavy left kick, but Banario timed it to close the distance and initiate a clinch against his Thai foe. Banario completed his second takedown and landed in Wiratchai's full guard.
    "OneShin" peppered Banario from the bottom with quick, short punches, but they were not enough to deter the Team Lakay athlete from using his top pressure. "The Rock" stayed active with ground and pound, although he was not landing clean shots. The round closed with Banario in control from top with Wiratchai stuck beneath him.
    2/28/2020 11:26:45 AM
    Wiratchai took the center of the Circle on the outset of the first round. The opening minute was mostly a feeling out process for each athlete. The Bangkok Fight Lab and Tiger Muay Thai athlete connected with a left knee that staggered "The Rock." The Team Lakay representative clinched with Wiratchai to regain his composure and slow down the bout after the significant strike.
    "The Rock" landed some good knees from inside the clinch to the legs of his Thai counterpart. Banario attempted a takedown, but Wiratchai defended the attempt and got off of the Circle Wall. Wiratchai looked for heavy, bout-altering, strikes, but he left himself open for a Banario takedown.
    The Filipino worked from side control in the final minute of the opening frame. The former ONE Featherweight World Champion scored with knees to the ribcage before the end of the round.

    2/28/2020 11:11:42 AM

    2/28/2020 11:06:13 AM


    “Miss Red” began the round with more fervor as she circled, but Phogat scored the takedown after her overhand right barely connected.

    This time, Phogat had side control and attempted to go into the mount position. “The Indian Tigress” unleashed a flurry of strikes – to the head, temple, and cheeks of her downed opponent.

    The Commonwealth wrestling gold medalist peppered her Chinese Taipei rival with more blows to the ribs and elbows to the temple.

    The stalemate continued until the bell sounded to signal the end of the contest. Great resilience from Wu, but it looked like Phogat had done more over all three rounds.

    2/28/2020 11:05:46 AM


    Phogat scored an early takedown and quickly brought the action down to the canvas. It looked like more of the same, with Phogat trying to land the ground and pound while attempting to move into side control.

    “Miss Red” kept her guard tight even as Phogat continued to chip away with loose strikes to the right temple.

    Phogat postured up and dropped several elbows, but “Miss Red” worked her way back to her feet shortly after.

    The two women clinched up against the Circle Wall as they exchanged soft blows to the midsection. Soon, the bell sounded to end the second stanza.

    2/28/2020 10:58:24 AM


    Phogat went to work quickly as she tried to establish the jab with her right hand. Wu was forced to the outside and Phogat sprung in with the double-leg to score a takedown.

    “The Indian Tigress” went into mount and unloaded a couple of strong right hands, but “Miss Red” recovered to get back into a close guard.

    Both women continued to jostle on the ground, but Phogat stayed in top control throughout to end the first round.

    2/28/2020 10:27:40 AM
    The two athletes exchanged low leg kicks in the opening seconds of the bout. Bae established himself in the center of the Circle, and Ramazanov was forced to circle on the outside.
    Bae pressured with strikes, but the Russian timed his opponent well to shoot in and slam him to the canvas. After the emphatic takedown, the South Korean worked from full guard. The Team Mad representative tried to work his way back to his feet, but Ramazanov stayed glued to his opponent and kept him on the mat.
    The Dagestan Fighter product laced an elbow through the defense of the South Korean. Ramazanov brilliantly moved to the back of his rival and began throwing heavy ground and pound. Bae was unable to move under the immense top pressure, and the referee was forced to step in to stop the contest after continuous unanswered punches from Ramazanov.

    2/28/2020 10:18:41 AM
    By the way, how cool is it that there is a mixed martial artist called “Bae?” That seems simply awesome.

    Jeff Chan defeats Radeem Rahman via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:00 of round two (mixed martial arts – bantamweight)

    2/28/2020 10:14:06 AM


    Chan continued to ramp things up with leg kicks to open the second round. He easily warded off Rahman’s takedown attempt and tried to utilize underhooks to pass the Singaporean's half guard.

    Then the "MMAShredded" social media star took Rahman’s back, sunk in the rear-naked choke, and forced the tap after two minutes.

    2/28/2020 10:13:50 AM


    Chan opened the contest with a few strikes, shot in for the takedown, and had his Singaporean opponent tied up against the Circle Wall early.

    The Canadian continued to control the center of the Circle, using outside leg kicks to keep Rahman at range. Rahman got a takedown, but Chan landed in top position. The Singaporean, however, held a tight guard to limited his ground and pound strikes.

    Rahman remained in half guard as Chan continued to battle for position. The Canadian dropped some elbows that grazed his opponent’s temple, but he could not land a decisive hit.
