IQMMA 6 Results – Big Night for Iron Tiger Muay Thai
Iroquois MMA held its sixth show in Ohsweken on November 22 and Iron Tiger Muay Thai team came away with many wins including Markhaile Wedderburn, David Hale, William Romero, and Shane Campbell.
The main event was a rematch of a Freedom Fight bout where Markhaile Wedderburn choked out Stephan Lamarche. Lamarche lasted longer in this second fight. He went the distance but lost the decision to Markhaile Wedderburn. Wedderburn won the IQMMA Welterweight belt for his victory.
Featherweight champion William Romero also fought on the card. Romero choked out Sean Tourand with a triangle choke submission. IQMMA VI also featured top Canadian university comedian Tony Lee. Lee defeated Justin Potter by getting a full mount and ground and pounding Potter.
The first fight of the night saw Bernie Antle on the receiving end of an illegal elbow. The referee did not protect the fighter and Antle received seven unanswered blows before the referee stopped it. Antle then had to wait thirty minutes for an ambulance prior to being removed from the cage in a stretcher. Fighter safety must be a priority in any MMA fight and it looks like it was overlooked in this bout.
