Isaac Vallie-Flagg vs Travis Coyle Main Event Jacksons MMA Series XV June 6th (170)

Isaac was cut by the UFC, whether it was age (37) or the dreaded three losses and your out deal is a question that only they can answer. Bellator didn't pick him up, but Jacksons MMA Series did. Which makes sense because he trains with Jackson-Wink MMA gym.  A fighter is only as good as his wins in this sport, and on June 6th he faced Travis Coyle who likes to grapple and wrestle, proven by most of his wins being submissions. By most, I mean 11 wins by submission. Going by the wins he likes the guillotine choke and when Isaac has lost it has been either by submission or decision. Definitely an interesting fight!

Jacksons MMA Series is always exciting, and loaded with MMA star power. Not only do you get to see great fights, and awesome upcoming fighters with a solid high quality promotion, you also get to see proven fighters who train at the Jackson camp.  Not only that but fighters out of Conquest MMA and Lutttrell's MMA are equally exciting!

Great lighting, exciting announcements, unlike some other small promotions. Jacksons Series gets it going!

But twice, and unfortunately, Travis turned Isaac around and planted him right in front of me. From there I was unable to see any action or get any shots except of the back of Vallie-Flagg. I missed the liver shot that KO'd Travis Coyle.
