Amateur Combat Sports returned to their original stomping grounds – the Michigan Theater in Jackson Saturday night with another stacked card full of fresh local talent. Promoter/matchmaker Jason Stoner did a fine job…as always! There were a lot of the guys from Jackson MMA in the house…some in the cage, some looking on in the crowd. Quincy Rice and his Spartans pretty much RAN THE TABLE, showing the amped up crowd how Jackson funds MMA gets down and gets it done! Early on in the night, Matthew Powell faced off against Michael Bateman in an interesting clash of styles that ended in a TKO early in the third round. In the very next match, Don “Grampa” Williams returned to the cage with a dominant performance against the tough (and considerably younger) Mike Wilson with a first round referee stoppage. The following match pitted the cage veteran Tyler Ray against Jack Ho. This one sounded good on paper, and it did not disappoint, with a fast paced war that ended with a TKO early on. The next 2 fights ended with a knockout…the first at the hands of Mike Glover over a very game William Binschus. The second KO in a row was delivered by Anthonio Alejandro over Eddie Dolson. Immediately following, Andrew Zuke demonstrated how to execute a triangle choke at the expense of the formidable <a fake oakleys href=”http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001130670491″>Austin Halfacre. Closing out the evening was the 135 pound title fight between Nick Bowen and Anthony Brown. Anthony threw on a triangle early on in the round and Nick defended it nicely for a while, but finally Anthony was able to work it in for the finish and the belt! The action for the night was being watched over by local fighters Michael Lemmo and Rob “The Hooligan” Taylor, along with the experienced (and still single) Doug Gallegos. The judges for the evening’s action were Mr. Shaun Rozanski, joined by FightMichigan’s Shannon Hale and T.J. Corwin. The M.C. for the evening was a local radio personality, Jackson Radio Works‘ Marc Daly. The timekeeper for the event (as well as Amateur Combat Sports webmaster) Keystroke Computer Repair‘s cheap football jerseys Jason “Muggzie” Mugg. All of the still photography for the event was skillfully handled by Chris Rabior from Chris Rabior Photography…check out his gallery here.
