In the main event Antonio Silva picked up his first UFC victory and handed  Travis Browne his first career loss with a first round punch that sent Browne crumbling to the mat. Browne pulled his hamstring after throwing a kick, which may have affected his performance, nonetheless Silva displayed great striking. Jake Ellenberger and the returning Jay Hieron had a lackluster Welterweight bout that rendered Ellenberger the winner after three rounds. John Dodson became the number one contender for Demetrious Johnson’s UFC Flyweight title when he dropped the formally number one ranked Flyweight in the world Jussier Formiga in the second round. In the submission of the night Justin Edwards slapped a guillotine choke on Josh Neer during clinching. Neer attempted to fight it but was choked unconscious for his efforts 45-seconds into the bout. In two come from behind victories, both Michael Johnson and Mike Pierce won second round knockouts.

Weekend in Fights! June 30th Edition

This Weekend in Fights! (June 30th) featured the Montreal debut of Instinct MMA, Resurrection Fighting Alliance in Nebraska, Championship Fighting Alliance in Florida, and Madness Fighting Competition in Aruba.

Instinct MMA held it’s fourth event and their first in Montreal at Centre Pierre-Charbonneau. The event had many exciting bouts, delivering a great show for local fans. The main event was headlined with a Welterweight showdown between two knockouts artists in Grudge Training Center’s Brandon Thatch and Quebec standout Martin Grandmont.With the combination of skill sets it was apparent from the opening bell that this bout would not go to the judges score cards. However, the result was not what many may have been predicted as Thatch submitted Grandmont with a rear-naked choke. After  a few exchanges of high kicks, Thatch brought the bout to the mat where he delivered a few strikes forcing Grandmont to give up his back. With the opening Thatch took advantage sinking in his hooks and the choke to end the bout in under two minutes.

Quebec fan favorite Thierry Quenneville returned to MMA after semi-retirement to take on UFC and STRIKEFORCE  veteran Luke Caudillo in Lightweight action. Quenneville pushed the pace and kept his distance throughout all three rounds picking his spots with combos and backing away. Quenneville stayed calm and even did a little trash talking but fought a very safe fight to win all three rounds on the judges score cards in a very successful return.

Former Dallas Maverick, ECW & OVW pro wrestler turned kickboxer turned MMA fighter Radu Spinghel and France native kickboxer and Tristar trainee Oulmoudéné Najebe squared off in a Heavyweight bout. Najebe made short work of the seven footer by shoving him to the mat for a 43-second TKO.  Najebe  pounced on Spinghel and  pounded him out, forcing the referee to step in when Spinghel wasn’t defending himself.

The fight of the night was a Middleweight bout between Strahinja Gavrilovic and Derek Parker. Parker was won both rounds one and two, by connecting with repeated legs kicks to Gavrilovic’s lead leg to the point that a huge visible welt was forming and Gavrilovic was hurt with each kick. Parker was very cocky and threw very powerful strikes, but ate some in the process and was caught late in the third round. Gavrilovic landed a huge right hand dropping Parker to the mat, where he followed up with some ground and pound that was halted by the referee. (Intinct MMA 4 Quick Results below – Round-by-Round Coverage Hear.)

Resurrection Fighting Alliance of RFA held their third event at the Viaero Event Center, in Kearney, Nebraska. TUF 2 Winner Joe Stevenson and Gay Porn star Dakota Cochrane headlined the event.  A 16-time UFC veteran Joe “Daddy” Stevenson joined the UFC after winning Season 2 of the Ultimate Fighter in 2005 by defeating Luke Cummo. With a total of 16-bouts over six years, Stevenson was release after dropping after losing four straight fights. His opponent Dakota Cochrane a veteran of 16 porn films attempted to make Season 15 of the Ultimate Fighter but lost a split decision to James Vick. A Nebraskan native, Cochrane most notable defeated Jamie Varner for Titan Fighting Championship, but went 0-2 in RFA since. Nonetheless the two took to the cage.  Cochrane snapped his two fight losing skid and improved his RFA record to 1-2 when finished off  Stevenson in a very familiar position; behind him. Cochrane submitted Stevenson with a rear-naked choke 64-seconds into the second round adding a fifth loss in a row for Stevenson. (Full RFA 3 – Stevenson vs. Cochrane event results below.)

Taking place at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida Championship Fighting Alliance held the seventh event that featured DREAM & STRIKEFORCE veteran Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante taking on Bellator veteran and CFA mainstay Luis Palomino in the main event. Palomino increased his win streak to four in a row, with a third round knockout. (Full CFA 7 – Never Give Up event results below.)

Aruba based Madness Fighting Competition featured some very familiar names to the Quebec MMA scene with Evan Nedd and Johan Croes. Nedd was featured on the first two Instinct MMA events, and Croes is an Instinct MMA, XMMA, TKO and the Stephane Patry run Titans Fighting standup only promotion. MFC’s inaugural event took place at the Joe Laveist Sport Park in San Nicolas, Aruba on Saturday night with a combination of pro and amateur bouts. Both Evan Nedd and Johan Croes lost their bouts in devastating fashion. Nedd got dropped with a big right hand from him opponent Adrick Croes. After taking the hit Nedd attempted a takedown, but Croes sprawled and they were back to their feet. Croes then threw a front kick that knocked Nedd out cold. Johan Croes took on Hyram Rodriguez who submitted him in the second round with a beautiful armbar submission. (Full Madness Fighting Competition 1 event results below.)
