WOW “Big Cat” Jesse Arnett comes out with his paws up and lands left straight that pulverizes Roland Delorme. Delorme stumbles back against the cage and is seriously hurt with the first strike of the night. All lefts all day. Delorme is getting mugged for his pizza money here. Roland Delorme stumbling around the ring trying to survive and Arnett just chasing him down and firing lefts! Over and over! Right head kick by Delorme temporarily stops Arnett, Delorme is not done yet, Big Cat recovers, they’re not easy to take out! Delorme bleeding from the right side of his face.  Arnett is bringing the pain,  just mashing and smashing, blood everywhere on Delorme’s face! Delorme trying to answer with a few body shots and knees but Arnett walking forward with supreme confidence!  Again more power packed lefts by Arnett stagger Delorme. Spinning hook kick by Jesse Arnett with 10 seconds left, this guy thinks his JCVD! “Stunning” Roland Delorme was stunned right at the opening bell and hasn’t been given a chance to recover yet! Relentless Big Cat attached!
Top MMA News scores the round 10-8 for Jesse Arnett

Round 2:
Roland Delorme trying to clinch, not happening, he’s not even close to 100% now. Big Cat missing on a gigantic combo. That left of Arnett’s is cocked and loaded and firing with reckless abandon and LANDING! Uppercut that started all the way from Jesse Arnett’s knees smashes Roland Delorme, the WAMMA product is in bad bad shape! It’s hunting season but it’s the Big Cat doing the hunting! Left straight staggers Delorme back, again more left smashage and massive left elbow to the nose of Delorme that crushes him, Arnett steps back and wants to throw a left kick but Delorme leans and falls almost in slow motion to his right with seemingly a damaged eye and waves NO MAS!

Arnett is jacked up and climbs the cage, flexes then jumps down, breaks through the barrier and hugs half a dozen people as the commission chases after him. He gets back in the cage and looks towards the promoters and let’s them know he wants the belt!
On the mic Arnett says he’s Top 20 in the world and the Big Cat is just getting better!

185lbs- Chase Degenhardt (8-3) vs. Micah Brakefield (6-5)

***Super Fight League Canadian Middleweight Title Fight
Round 1:

Jab by Brakefield . Solid straight by Degenhardt then a leg kick lands heavily . Chase Degenhardt with a stiff body kick to Brakefield’s right that stings. Then follows it up with a kick that lands on the cup. Brakefield with a very low shot and manages to get his opponent down, they scramble and Brakefield gets behind Degenhardt and hits a picture perfect suplex from the depths of hell that would make Josh Barnett proud, WOW!!! Chase Degenhardt lives to fight on and Brakefield goes for a leg lock with Degenhardt answering with his own attempt. Another attempt by Brakefield but Degenhardt gets his leg out and stands. Low shot by Brakefield that is heavily pancaked by Degenhardt, still Brakefield works for a leg lock attempt but nothing there. The Complete MMA fighter, Chase Degenhardt follows Micah Brakefield onto the mat and starts feeding hard and fast punches to his face. Those are hurting. They disengage with Degenhardt standing in the middle of the cage and strangely Brakefield attempts to make an upward motion but to no avail. His mind is telling him yes, but his body, his body is telling him NOOO! Brakefield gets up a quarter of the way and flops backwards on the cage floor. Chase Degenhardt notices something is up and immediately rushes in on his fatigued and disoriented opponent. At the same time the always excellent Adam Cheadle comes flying in as he notices something is wrong and saves the distressed fighter from any further punishment. Strange serious of events there which lead to the ref stoppage. Cheadle looks to explain to Brakefield why the fight was stopped and from my vantage point isn’t met with too much of a protest.

Matt Krayco (5-7) vs. Justin Schmit (2-3)
Round 1:
Leg kick by Krayco starts things off. Schmit pushes Krayco against the cage, works a body lock and wrestles Krayco down. Closed guard by Krayco. The former pro hockey enforcer Schmit’s not doing much but it seems that if he tries Krayco wants to throw up an armbar, nothing yet though mainly just in decision. Finally Schmit pops up and immediately Krayco goes for the arm. Schmit lifts up and rips his arm out, he then unleashes a furious flurry of hooks to the head of Krayco, 1 or 2 may have wandered to the back of the head. Juking and jiving and “The Kid” Krayco survives and is gets his guard back. Schmit a little more active now, but just as his corner tells him to watch for the triangle, the 9 year vet Krayco snaps the forewarned triangle on Justin Schmit. Matt Krayco’s got this on and Schmit is trapped. “The Animal” Schmidt gets his head pulled down by Krayco and then Krayco tightens up his legs around the neck of him and that’s that, tap tap fight is over.

Steve Roy (1-1) vs. Dan Juricic (1-0)
Round 1:
Roy and Juricic start the fight winging massive punches. With each punch both fighters are trying to take each other’s heads off. Just a chaotic opening sequence with Roy landing the slightly heavier shots and Juricic coming in with a more compact approach, at least 10-15 punches by each fighter in a span of 30 seconds. Quick front headlock attempt by Roy, no go. Roy wobbles Juricic with a straight right that backs up his opponent, misses on a big uppercut. Dan Juricic answers with a straight of his own that forces Roy to regroup. Slight cut over Roy’s eye, who again misses landing a heavy uppercut. Steve Roy winds up from Winnipeg and finally lands that monstrous uppercut on the chin of Dan Juricic that drops him in on his side against the cage. It’s followed up by several GNP shots to his head as he tries to recover but the ref has seen enough and jumps in to save Juricic.

    I thought the play by play was great. Accurate, and actually entertaining to read. I agree with the 10-8 scoring in the first round, but also think it doesn’t matter because Arnett finished him. No scorecards needed. Why argue?

    Well-loved! Thumb up 7 Thumb down 1
