Ron DeLeon Promotions – Capital City Cage Fight Championships – Results from October 14th, 2011

Ron DeLeon’s Capital City Cage Fight Championships returned home to the Lansing Center Friday night with another stacked-to-the-max fight card. The amped up fans packed in tight to see all of their local faves in action. And the action started quickly, with a grudge match between Joe Scott and J.R. Meddaugh. J.R. dominated the early part of the fight, but Joe managed to ride out the storm of strikes and turned the tide for a rear naked choke finish. There were several very dominant striking displays throughout the night, starting with this one – James DeWitt versus Shaun Saville. This fight only lasted 11 seconds, with James coming out with all guns blazing for the quick finish. Alex Stutsky and Scott Skriba locked horns in an interesting mix of styles, with Alex coming out the victor. Another one of the dominant displays we mentioned earlier was done at the hands of Ray Reynero, who dispatched his opponent, Thomas Rzanca, in a mere 18 seconds. Next on the card, the ladies went to war in impressive fashion. GRBJJ’s Nancy Churches took to the cage to face Kathleen Albany in a battle that went all the way to the score cards, with Nancy walking away the winner by unanimous decision. Next up was Josh Shaw facing off against cage veteran Antoine Williams. This one ended quickly via the patented Shaw guillotine. We couldn’t help but notice…when one of the Shaw brothers gets your neck, you can count the SECONDS ’til the end! Branford Brown did battle with Pound 4 Pound’s Kory Wertz, with Kory taking the decision after three quite impressive rounds. Then it was back to the ladies, with noteable striker Amanda Cooper taking on a very impressive and tough Imoni Williams. Amanda did what she does best – she pummeled her opponent into submission…literally. Then there was the COLOSSAL showdown between the Striking Dragon’s Denato Richardson and Murcielago MMA’s Dequan “The Tarantula” Townsend. This battle was EPIC, keeping the judges working HARD. Dequan took the “W”, showing off his vast experience and getting the better of the exchanges on the feet. In the 185 pound division, local badboy Brandon Johnson took the stage against the undefeated Mitch Stadel. This one ended when Brandon received an injury while being taken down with a slam, leaving Mitch STILL undefeated. In the Main Event of the evening, the rock-solid Tyler Sible took on the local legend, Zack Shaw for the 155 pound belt. Zack mounted a BRUTAL and relentless assault that Tyler simply could not find an answer to in time. Zack gets more impressive every time out…he might have the belt for a LONG time! The staff for the event were all veterans of their respective trades, starting with – the enforcer of all things law (A.K.A. referee) – experienced ref and Michigan pro fighter “Vicious” Vance Swerdan, along with his trusty (and perpetually single) assistant, Doug Gallegos. Judges for this fine event were Jason Stoner, James Griffin and FightMichigan’s very own T.J. Corwin. Consistent is the most appropriate way to describe Ron DeLeon’s events. Fans know that Capital City Cagefight Championships ALWAYS delivers excitement when it comes to MMA – which is why Ron is a household name in the Lansing area! CCCFC has many BIG things on the horizon…and we’ll keep you posted as soon as the info is released! For now, here are your results…

Results for Go Work Out MMA Elite Fight Night 1 from December 19, 2009

Go Work Out had a great night at the Ramada in Lansing. The ballroom was jam packed and the crowd was ready to see the fighters throw down in the cage. Referee Justin Houghton kept the fighters safe and kept the action going while announcer Greg Ahrens kept us informed and entertained. I know the show was a long time ago (like a week and a half), and I apologize, but some things got in the way of posting the results. Like a cold. Then the flu. Then Christmas. And bronchitis. So, now that the personal pity party is over… here are your results:
