Once again, FightMichigan would like to thank Josh Lawrence from Genesis Fighting Championship for sending in results from last Saturday’s show. His write-ups are always fun to read and we like keeping track of who’s winning and who’s not when we can’t be there. Here’s Josh’s report:
A night full of roaring crowds and fantastic knock outs!
The second fight of the night was short and sweet and a highlight on any fight card.
David Ayotte from Waterford vs Kyle Cleary from Port Huron, these two green amateurs where both newcomers to the world of MMA and put on one hell of a show for their first performance in the cage.
After the gloves touched these two Michigan bad boys threw down like someone just stole their mother’s cookie jar! Both David and Kyle threw fast hand combos right off the back with Ayotte catching Cleary right on the chin and then picking him up for a big slam, but Cleary was not there to lose! Cleary regained his composure and scrambled back to his feet and engaged once again toe to toe with Ayotte but this time Cleary touched Ayotte’s chin and sent him down to the canvas like he just got hit by a mac truck.
Out cold and one of the best knock outs I’ve seen from a now 1-0 fighter in years.
Kyle Cleary deff David Ayotte in just 18 seconds of pure madness, deff Cheap Jordans a fight that could be labeled fast and the furious.
The third fight of the night was our second knock out, and let me tell you it was off the hook.
Luke Sheer from Monroe, Michigan vs Chris Lancop from Windsor, Canada.
These two studs showed no wholesale jerseys love, and came out to show the Flint town crowd what throwing down was all about!
These to warriors met in the center of the cage and went for broke right from the opening bell! Sheer started landing some clean shots to Lancops head and body, then catching the Canadian bad boy and sending him down on one knee, but little be known, Lancop did not come all the way over to Flint, Michigan to see Sheer’s hand get raised!
Lancop slipped Sheer’s big right hook and countered with his own straight right hand that had Sheer counting sheep before he even hit the mat. A beautiful right hand not seen by many green amateur fighters but I’m telling you that those Canadian fighters train hard and come to fight. With much respect after Referee (Genesis Fighting Championship bantamweight Champ Joel Chapman) raised Lancops hand, he went over like a true warrior and check on Sheer to see if he was ok and thanked him for a good fight.
Chris Lancop def Luke Sheer via ko at 24 sec in the first round.
The sixth fight of the nfl jerseys shop night was def my fav,
Eddie Tamez from Kalamazoo, Michigan vs Ohio’s Badboy Brandon Laino.
Brandon, looking the bigger and stronger of the two, used his strength and wrestling ability to take Tamez Down at will and control him on the ground. Lanio jockeyed for position and tried finishing Tamez three times with ground and pound from mount and once with a rear naked choke, but though Lanio’s onslaught was almost unstoppable, Tamez showed true heart and used his BJJ to defend and wear Lanio down.
The second round started off the same as the first with Tamez throwing some fast combos and Laino slipping punches and scoring a nice double leg, once again controling Tamez. Laino pushing the pace passed Tamez’s half guard and flowed right to mount and scoring a few strikes, but Tamez holding his composure working back to his guard.
Out of the blue Tamez hits a beautiful sweep and puts Laino on his back and goes in for the kill, Tamez (now in sidemount with Lanio’s head ray ban sale against the cage) is in finish mode and smells blood, Tamez rains down some brutal ground and pound breaking Lanio’s nose and opening a cut which caused Lanio to tap out due to strikes.
Winner Eddie Tamez in 2:37 in the second round.
Let me tell you ladies and gents, and promoters if you’re reading, Eddie Tamez fights at 125lbs and fights once in a while a 135lbs! This kid is an animal, nice hands, good BJJ and the heart of a lion! We are giving Eddie the shot at the Genesis 125lb title as soon as he’s healthy and ready to go, mark my words: 2013 this kid is gonna make some waves in the world of MMA one day.
On to the main event of the night
Mark “The Savage” Walker (13-4) from Flint Michigan vs Jamie “Ink Daddy” Dushane (7-7)
for the vacant 145lb Genesis Fighting Championship Featherweight Title.
This fight was short and sweet like most of Walker’s fights. Walker was the home town fav and came out and showed the crowd what he does best, win and win fast!
After the Gloves touched Walker hit Dushane with a 3 punch combo that caused Dushane’s nose to start bleeding pretty good.
Dushane, not wanting much more of the stand up game, clinched, and Walker hit a high crotch and slammed Dushane to the mat, flowing right to mount and finishing him with brutal ground and pound in just 41 seconds, to capture the vacant 145lb feather weight title.
Mark Walker (14-4) is the new Genesis Fighting Championship Featherweight Champion after defeating Jamie Dushane in just 41 sec of the first round, via ground and pound.
