Ringside Report Radio Guest Mike Campbell won his fight in quick fashion, with a TKO victory over Mike Medrano in what Medrano thought was early stoppage; perhaps a rematch will take place at WCF 9 in February.
Fight of the night goes to Joe McGann defeating Jason Dublin in a 2 round grinder. McGann was very impressive taking multiple punches to the jaw and even a Muay Thai clinch knee (which in illegal in WCF Rules) to the jaw, that did not even faze him. This guy has a GREAT CHIN! Lev Kamenski was also very impressive and had a striking resemblance to Anderi Arlovski.
