Fight Night 10

The rain came down, the  football game was on T.V. and there were live fights at the Southeastern Fight Center on Saturday night. The fight card had a line- up of only four fights. Four of the fighters were new to the octagon. I wasn’t sure how good the fights would be with these newbie’s, but everyone has got to start somewhere.

Fight ONE
Guzowski  Team Wolfpack 202 lbs.  vs. Miller 198 lbs.
Both of these fighters were 0-0. Guzowski dominated and Miller took a lot of hits to the head. Guzowski won by a TKO (Technical Knock out)

After Fight ONE the MC said that Kevin Tice “TLB” (Tough Little Bastard) was there and was looking for an opponent. Saturday night there were a lot of fighters in the fight center that were not on the fight card.

Fight TWO
Bonds (0-1) 152 lbs. vs Helms( 0-2) 156 lbs. Team Wolfpack
Bonds must have been training a little since his last fight, he started the first round by putting Helms in a guillotine. Bonds got a lot of hits on Helms his striking while standing was impressive. Bonds won the match by Side controlling Helms then he put him in a rear naked choke and Helms had no choice but to tap out at the exact same time the horn blew for the end of the 1st round. Bonds is now 1-1.

During the intermission the MC announced that “TLB” had an opponent and they would fight the last fight of the night. Steve Baxley also got into the octagon to announce Dray and George’s fight in Tallahassee, FL at The Moon next Saturday night Oct. 3, 2009. These guys are very excited to be fighting outside of the amateur ring.

Coleman (Wolfpack) 235 lbs vs. McKenzie (Bad Company) 230 lbs.
This pair was another first into the octagon. Both were 0-0 when they stepped into the ring. It is hard to judge a fighter by his corner guys or his physique. Coleman had a crowd in his corner, and McKenzie had a corner guy that looked like he never stepped into the ring. In the first round McKenzie took control and had Coleman in a top mount. When the horn blew and the fighters went to their corners both fighters looked tired. In the second round both got in a lot of hits while standing and when they made it to the ground they got in such a tangle the ref. had to separate them. The crowd was on it’s feet watching these two throw punches. In round three these two went the distance and the judges called McKenzie the winner.

Fight FOUR
Mitchell (1-0) 190 lbs. Wolfpack vs. Morgan (3-0) 190 lbs.
Mitchell is a really tough fighter. In his last fight he broke his opponent’s nose and knocked out some of his teeth. His fighting stance was solid. Morgan took some of those power strikes, but he gave Mitchell a show of his strength and at the end of round one, Mitchell couldn’t continue to round two. Morgan was announced the winner. Morgan (now 4-0) will be a fighter to watch in the future.

Tice “TLB” vs. Shawn C. Team Freestyle
This match got added to the fight card after the first fight. I had seen Shawn in the crowd as he watched the fights. It is hard to spot a fighter in plain clothes. Both of these fighters average around 150 lbs. I didn’t hear the exact weights. In round one Shawn went full force at Tice and was able to pick him up and slam him down to the mat on what looked like his head and left shoulder. The whole octagon rocked. Shawn took control and pounded a lot of strikes to Tice. Tice was in a total defense fight he did all he could to hold him back trying to get free of his reach. The ref. stopped the fight and Shawn was announced the winner.

Fight Night 10 did not disappoint even with only four fights on the fight card. These fights are thrilling because these amateurs can really surprise you. They each come into the octagon with fresh talent and if you come to the fights, you can expect that no matter who steps into the octagon, it will be a night to remember.
