WEEKEND RECAP: LOCAL MMA
Battle for the Border 3 – – Mike Kent (Titans MMA) vs Alfonso Gonzales (Northwest Elite) – (200lb catchweight) Gonzales knew Kent was going to be a tough match up. Kent’s last fight was a big win over Matt Baker @WSOF Canada 1, Gonzales wasted no time defeating Kent via TKO/due to strikes @:52 in the 1st Rd. This was a huge win for Gonzales and a giant step in his career. Gonzales is set to face off against Jared Torgeson (Irish Hit Squad) May 3 @Cage Sport XXX, Emerald Queen Casino, Tacoma, Washington. It’s gonna be a war!
Cody McKenzie (Pride Gym, TUF 12 & former UFC fighter) defs Mark Dobie (Cannibull Fight Team) via RNC/@2:28 in the 1st Rd. Look for McKenzie in the near furure to make his mark in the WSOF. This was a true test for Dobie & will come back stronger than before.

Off The Chain 4 – The Ultimate MMA event in Arkansas held in Hot Springs Convention Center. This card was loaded with talented and skilled fighters, with the Main Event featuring Dave ‘the Duke’ Burrows (Without Limits MMA) vs David ‘Freebird’ Lindsay (Westside MMA). This was a much anticipated remarch ocurring from their first fight at OTC 3 with Lindsey winning via Sub/Choke @1:32 in the 2nd Rd. In the rematch Lindsey defs Burrow for the 2nd time via Kimura Lock/1st Rd. These guys always put on a great performance in front of the MMA fans. Lindsey has stated that he is going to put down his gloves for now so he can spend more time with his son. Spoken like a TRUE CHAMP. Lots of great action in this Off The Chains 4. This event was on iPPV GFL.TV order & have it for life.
Midwest Cage Championship 53 – Got to give a huge shout out to Brian ‘the Humancockfighter’ Imes (Brass Boxing & Fitness KC) defeating Josh Christensen (Des Moines Jiu Jitsu Acadamy) via full body triangle/ RNC/@3:42/1st Rd for the MCC Light Heavyweight Title. This was Imes first fight since blowing his knee out little over a year ago. Imes stated it took a minute to find his flow, his knee was healthy and mind was free. Great win for Brian ‘the Humancockfighter’ Imes.
Bellator 116 – I got to give a huge shout out to Karo Parisyan vs Ron Keslar. Parisyan def Keslar via TKO/@4:05 2nd Rd. Huge win for Parisyan! Great to see you back Karo ‘the Heat’ Parisyan.
