This event started of the best way possible – with a crowd-hyping, brutal knockout. Starting right out with the big boys in the Heavyweight division, Chris Woonacott squared up against Evan Strahl. With both fighters charging in hard, Strahl landed a vicious shot that stopped the fight at ONLY FOUR SECONDS, which may very well be the fastest (or one of, at least) knockout in Michigan MMA history!

In yet ANOTHER amazing striking display, Clyde Howard took on the heavy-handed Jarrid Hill. Very early in the very first (and final) round, Hill landed an overhand left directly to his opponent’s temple for an absolute highlight reel quality knockout. In another great match of styles, Robert Masko took on the muscle-bound Kenneth “Batman” Green. The pace was amazing, with Masko ending up in full mount in the first round. Green tried his best to buck his opponent off, but the second time he tried to escape, Robert used the momentum to transition into an armbar for the tap and the victory. In the Bantamweight division, David Havice and Mike Beach squared off to see who would walk away with the NFC 135 pound gold. The fight ended in the very first round, with Mike Beach landing some heavy leather for yet ANOTHER knockout on the night and the strap around his waist. The seventeenth fight on the card was an interesting battle in the ladies’ division featuring Rachael Smith taking on Sara Vankammen.

McManus also pulled off two HUGE slams, then transitioned into full mount and let the hands fly for the TKO finish and the title gold. NFC’s Welterweight title was up for grabs when the experienced Dakota Lichner took on the always entertaining Randy Patino. Patino’s ground game was on point. He caught Dakota early on in the first round in a triangle choke, then continued to work it in like a Boa, until finally his opponent was forced to concede, making Randy the current 170 pound champ. The last fight of the night was a war in the Lightweight division for the belt and bragging rights in the 155 domain. Arturo DeLeon faced off against Kamron Snyder in what turned out to be a technical but brief exchange. DeLeon opened up a cut on Snyder with some standup early on, but after a takedown and some quick jockeying for position, Kam locked on a tight armbar that proved to be inescapable, earning a submission win and a golden strap.
