Enumclaw’s Harrington, Cunningham Capture Gold at Super Fight League 41

 Tacoma, Washington (July 12, 2015) – It was an historic night inside the I-5 showroom at the Emerald Queen Casino. Fighters from all over the Pacific Northwest stepped into the cage for a chance at glory. With two title fights headlining this incredible card, fans packed inside the venue were in for a treat from the opening bell.

In one of the most exciting fights any mixed martial arts fan can hope to see, the main event of the evening featured Tacoma’s own Harrison “Wolverine” Bevens (7-4) take on Enumclaw native Justin “Ruckus” Harrington (7-2) for the Super Fight League America 155lb. title. After surviving a vicious left hand and seemingly endless ground and pound from Harrington in the first, Bevens began to battle back in the second before eating another vicious overhand right from his opponent. Harrington followed up the shot with hammer fists from top position, forcing the referee to make the stop. With the win, Harrington goes home with the Lightweight Championship for the second time in his young career.


The co-main event of the evening saw another Enumclaw fighter, the undefeated Tyson Cunningham (4-0-1) take on Thomasville, Georgia’s Mike “Zombie” Dubois (4-2) for the Super Fight League America Welterweight Championship. The first round went to the ground early and often, with Cunningham landing takedown after takedown. As the action moved to round number two, the trend remained the same, with Cunningham outwrestling the Georgia native before sinking in the elusive Von Flue choke and earning championship gold.


In one of the evening’s featured contests, highly touted Spanaway native Bobby McIntyre (3-1) took on Vancouver’s Jason Novelli (8-1) in a 3-round Lightweight title eliminator bout. The action came early, with both fighters landing huge takedowns in the first round. The second round saw Novelli pull away, eventually sinking in a rear-naked choke for the submission victory and staking his claim to a Lightweight Title fight against newly crowned champion, Justin”Ruckus” Harrington in a fight.


Four hotly contested bouts rounded out the evening. Those results are as follows.


Corey Watson (3-0) def. Adam Walkemeyer (2-3) via 1st Round Submission (Arm Triangle)


Kody Kramer (1-0) def. Tony Reyes (8-9) via Unanimous Decision


Woo Johnson (4-1) def. Chris Aparicio (0-3) via 3rd Round Submission


Vince Morales (2-0) def. Jeremie Montgomery (0-1) via 1st Round TKO
