Trent House vs. Brandon Shorter
Round 1: Trent is pumping out his jab and keeping Brandon at bay with it. Trent lands a nice uppercut and has yet to take any damage. Brandon lands a nice left hook but Trent’s work rate is just way higher. I don’t know if he can keep this pace up or not. Both fighters are exchanging punches and leg kicks now in the second half of the round but Trent’s jab is still throwing off Brandon’s timing. Brendon lands a nice left hook, but Trent doesn’t seems to be phased at all. Trent’s pace definitely slowed up a bit but he clearly won the round. Topmmanews scores the round 10-9 Trent House.
Round 2: Both fighters exchange leg kicks. Trent and Brandon land simultaneous jabs but then Trent follows up with a crushing right straight that drops Brandon. Trent pounces on Brandon and finishes the fight with a series of unanswered blows and referee Brian Beauchamp stops the fight.

Matt Spisak vs. Matt Krayco
Round 1: Krayko lands a nice right hook that got Spisak’s attention. Spisak looks a little hesitant after that hook and chooses to clinch up with Krayco. Spisak locks in a guillotine and Krayco walks up the cage and flips over Spisak to escape. Incredible! Krayco tries to lock in a guillotine of his own but Spisak escapes and then scores a takedown. When Krayco tries to walk up the cage Spisak almost takes Krayco’s back but Krayco escapes. Spisac is working hard for a takedown with Krayco’s back against the cage but Krayco is defending well. Eventually Spisak takes Krayco’s back with an arm under Krayco’s chin. Krayco tries to escape but Spisak eventually get both hooks in and forces the tap.
This was a fun fight. I thought Krayco had the advantage when they were striking but Spisak completly controlled Krayco with his superior grappling.

Marcus Vinicious vs. Dia Grant
Round 1: Marcus is baiting Dia while showcasing his movement. When Dia charges in Marcus drops him but then lets him back up. Marcus is really controlling the distance with his movement. Dia shoots in for a single let and locks a leg up but Marcus escapes though and punishes Dia with some hard right hands from top position before letting him back up. Marcus is clearly toying with Dia. After letting him up Marcus lands a spinning hook kick that causes the crowd to erupt and stuns Dia. Dia shoots for a double leg but Marcus defends and winds up in mount. Dia rolls to his stomach and Marcus finishes him off with a rear naked choke.
Marcus is clearly an exceptional talent! I want to see him fight tougher competition for sure.

Corey Houston vs. Nathan Wilkins
Round 1: Nathan is throwing some kicks but Corey is easily avoiding them. Corey moves in with a left hook that lands and the fighters clinch up against the cage. Not a lot is happening so the referee breaks the fighters up. Corey rushes in again but this time Nathan counters with a double leg takedown. Corey quickly throws his hips up for a triangle attempt and traps Nathan with it. After a quick adjustment Corey locks it up and forces Nathan to tap.

Zach Manywounds vs. Dusty Kramps
Round 1: Zach opens up the action in the first round with a nice side kick that catches Dusty off guard and causes him to fall backwards. Dusty responds with a cracking side kick. Zach gets hit with a low blow that seriously drops him. The doctor is brought in and I overhear Zach claiming, “It feels like my balls are in my stomach.” Zach does not look good. The doctor told referee Adam Cheadle that there is clearly some trauma here and he stops the fight on the doctor’s recommendation.
The fight is ruled a No Contest by Doctor Stoppage due to an Unintentional Foul
Jared Silverthorn vs. Will Monzon
Round 1: Jared lands a nice high kick but Will responds with a great combination that drops Jared. Jared gets up and goes back on the offensive but Will hands are too much for Jared. Will is landing a lot of great punches and Jared is clearly out on his feet when referee Brian Beauchamp stops the fight.
Will showed off some serious power and speed in his hands. Really exciting fight to watch.
