Scheer’s Team Ring Shark trying to stop Tristar MMA from going home 3-0 here. That might be tough as Nallo is billed as a beast. Nallo jumps and pounds the cage with his feet while Rodriguez pounds it with his fist. The real question is will by PBP typing keep up with this action?

Corey Atkinson vs. Sheldon Leblanc
Ref: Phil Koldyk
Humboldt (Atkinson) vs Weyburn (Leblanc) in this bout. Guess who the crowd is supporting? Has there ever been a boring Atkinson fight? I doubt it. Looking forward to a fun fight here.
Round 1:
Touch gloves and they immediately tie up. Leblanc muscling Atkinson against the fence. This seems to be the theme tonight. Underhooks and Leblanc throws Atkinson to the mat. Leblanc on top in half guard. He lands a left. He jumps across his body to get to side. Leblanc rubs out a few dirty elbows across Atkinson’s face. Leblanc has a definite strength advantage. A few more elbows scrape across Atkinson’s face. Pointy things, elbows. I hate those. A few forearms and now Leblanc drops some big knees to the body. No mouthpiece for Atkinson. Leblanc in big time control all round. Much like Davis before, Leblanc does little with that dominant position all round.

Round 2:
Leg kick by Atkinson and Leblanc responds with a hard, straight right. What do you know? We are back in side control with Leblanc on top. Leblanc lands some elbows and fans yell “Knee him in the guts!” More of those scraping elbows. You can shave with those things. Atkinson can’t find an answer. Repeated elbows dragged across the face with a few knees to the ribs for good measure. Two harder knees to the ribs. Still in side. No blows with intent to finish since he started side control three minutes ago. Leblanc now goes for an arm. He is torquing that shoulder hard. Ouch. Atkinson gives one hard tap and Koldyk steps in. A little unsure if it was a tap but there is no argument from Atkinson. It was a tap in my book

Hard right lands by Schira. Davis takes him down. (I count 85 “Cmon Clay!!”‘s from Schira’s wife? Loud, supportive lady!) Davis in half guard and then passes to side.
