Tyler Bounds MMA Team Wolfpack

I have been watching Tyler Bounds in the octagon now for several months. He lost his first couple of fights and kept at his training and started winning . He’s at 3-2. Usually after the fights he’s been hard to catch, but he didn’t fight this last Friday night and I got an interview with him. He’s a Junior at Dothan High School and hopes to one day be famous. He asked me if I would make him famous but I told him he is responsible for his own fame.

Tyler, wishing you the best, good luck!

Hooters Friday Night Fights
November 13, 2009
The Southeastern Fight League had a full fight card of seven fights for the night.

The Southeastern Fight Center on Brannon Stand Road was packed out with a large number of fans that came out to support their favorite fighters. Attending the fights from week to week, draws out the MMA fan in all of us. Sometimes all it takes is attending one live fight night just like the one last Friday night to become a fan.

Here is the Fight card and the winners:

1. Cody Calhoun Team Climax vs. Jordan Chailland Team No Mercy
Winner: Cody Calhoun

2. Daniel Serna vs. Caleb Smith Team Wolfpack
Winner: Daniel Serna TKO

3. Sean Love Team Climax vs. Josh Cheek Team NSK Systems
Winner: Sean Love TKO

4. Brad Morgan Team Wolfpack vs. Chris Reams Team No Mercy
Winner: Brad Morgan Tap out

5. Mike Yates Team Wolfpack vs. Jeremy King
Winner: Mike Yates Tap out

6. Sean Curtis vs. Miguel Mellow
Winner: Sean Curtis. Fight went three rounds and the judges called the winner

7. Erik French Team Wolfpack vs. Steve Carthon Team Wolfpack
Winner: Steve Carthon Tap out

Come to the fight center and expect to see some great talent. The main event was enough to bring fans to the fight center. Erik French has a lot of fans and so does Steve Carthon. They are both good fighters.

The fights leading up to the main event had the crowd on the edges of their seats and the fight of the night was not the main event, the fight of the night had to go to fight 6 between Curtis and Mellow. These two athletes still had two more rounds of fight in each of them after the third round. Seeing a fight like this brings fans back time and time again.

Miss a Fight? Want to see a fight again?  Video of the fights are for sale. Contact the Southeastern Fight League for information. 

These fighters come into the octagon as amateurs and with a few losses and a few wins they get to show off their training and talent. Make plans to come out to the next fight , this Friday night Nov 20, 2009.

No fights the following week as we all observe Thanksgiving. Fights to resume the first Friday of December.
