Onto the CXF MMA show at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City after the Jiu Jitsu tournament earlier in the day. We had Gabriel Green and Marlen Magee fighting. Josh Jones was supposed to be on the card as well, but his opponent pulled out due to injury on the Tuesday before the fight.
Back home from another Knockout Fight League show at Metroflex in Long Beach, CA. This time we only had one fighter — Jesse Herrera — fighting on the card. Jesse was supposed to be fighting at lightweight (155), but his opponent weighed in TWENTY pounds overweight! Jesse still wanted to fight and since CAMO requires fighters to be within 10 pounds of eachother, Jesse had to GAIN weight to be able to fight. Besides that, one of our sister gyms — Adam Lynn's Subfighter — had Geoff Mellor fighting again as well.
Back from another night of CXF fights at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, CA. We had 3 fighters on the card this time &emdash; Selah Williams, Marc Alvidrez making his pro debut and Josh Jones fighting for the 4th time in CXF.
Selah was fight #2 on the card. He took the fight with one week notice as a late replacement. Not much to say about this fight. Selah was caught early and lost by TKO around a minute into the first round.
Back home from Bellator 170. We had Gabriel Green fighting for them again. This time, at The Forum in Inglewood, California. He had one of the best fight camps of his career and felt better than ever going into the fight. His opponent was a super tall, lanky striker. They were the 3rd fight of the night. Unfortunately, things didn’t go our way this time as Gabe took a shot directly to the temple early in the first round. He dropped and that caused the ref to stop the fight. Gabe didn’t even get the chance to get any offense going. But, that happens sometimes.
