Tafoya vs Smith was a very exciting fight, Tafoya came out strong attempting many kicks. Marquis was able to land some heavy shots, Jesse hit the canvas but was able to recover and get back to his feet. See what happened in the pictures below!
Slade Ring took on Fernando Sanchez, both landed strikes and kicks before going to the ground! Check out the pics to get an idea of what happened! See if you can find which shot caused the cut.
Jake Angel took the fight on short notice and did well in the first round, however it was all Charles Lee in this fight who landed some hard shots to end it.
Hunter Tower dominated the fight with vicious body kicks and laid down some ground and pound until the fight was stopped by the referee in the 2nd round! Check out the pictures below!
I was very disappointed by the referee call tonight at Jacksons XVII, Nick Urso was on his way to a victory. Instead there was for some weird reason a time out called by the ref, who said there were strikes to the back of the head. I personally did not see this and I was watching through a 200mm lens.
Urso had full mount, and was doing ground and pound, all while Jordan was turning and trying to roll out of being mounted. I feel like the ref should have just stopped the fight for a TKO in Nick Urso's favor. Instead it was ruled a No Contest... here are the pics judge for yourself.
Believe me if there was a shot to the back of the head, I would have loved to post it! Especially after the call, it would have been great for me to post here, that would have sent my hits to the moon. I have no side on this, I just like to see things go the right way. I believe it did not.
He rushed out to the middle of the ring and was the aggressor in Saturday nights 145lb amateur fight. Seth was no slouch, he landed some good shots. A lot of this fight happened directly in front of me with a back in my view or off in my corners where getting a good shot is extremely difficult. I did my best, but I didn't get to catch the heavy shots. This was a 3 round fight that Kris Gonzales dominated for a 30-27 decision... and almost falling out of the cage at the end. Here are the pics!
I have to say that both of these fighters fought hard, I am glad I wasn't a judge for this fight because these guys appeared evenly matched. Mark Matthew suffered a broken toe during a takedown in the 2nd round, Mark told me he felt it pop and then a lot of pain. He performed many sensational takedowns in the fight.
I wasn't seeing much striking, Mark scored several takedowns in the first round but Tyler scored his own as well. Very good technique was on display from both fighters.
Any strikes appeared to setup a takedown, clearly submissions were on their minds.
As you can see the fight changed momentum many times, Mark and Tyler put on a great fight for the fans.
I felt like Mark Matthew won the first round with all the takedowns. But Tyler Star scored as well.
I do believe it was 1-1 going into the 3rd round and Mark came out strong despite a broken toe. Landed a couple of good shots and multiple takedowns with a submission attempt. I felt like this is what won him the fight!
