Simon Marcus def. Joe Schilling by TKO

Schilling came out hard per the usual, but Marcus stayed calm, stopping his attacks.  Marcus swept Schilling, landing hard on top of him with all of his weight.  As Schilling got up to his feet he was visibly hurt and wobbly.  The referee failed to notice this, but Marcus did not as he capitalized instantly, landing a left hook that dropped the lanky American fighter like a tree.  Schilling somehow made it to his feet but a head kick and elbow dropped him again, forcing the stoppage and giving Marcus the TKO victory.

Gregory Choplin def. Chaz Mulkey by unanimous decision

Choplin proved too technical and well rounded for the less experienced Mulkey.  He scored a knockdown in the second round but Mulkey showed toughness and grit by recovering and taking the fight to the decision.

Matt Embree def. Coke Chunhawat by unanimous decision

Matt Embree showed promise against the tough veteran, Chunhawat.  He used leg kicks and superior boxing to control the fight and earn a unanimous decision

Scotty Leffler def. Sheldon Gaines by unanimous decision

Leffler controlled the early rounds, earning a knockdown.  Gaines turned it on in the third and fourth though, causing a cut on each of Leffler’s eyes.  Leffler took the fifth and the unanimous decision.

Tiffany Van Soest def. Vivian Leung via unanimous decision

Van Soest was simply too much from bell to bell for Leung to handle.  She opened a cut on Leung’s forehead early on and kept that momentum, as she steamrolled through each round taking minimal damage while imposing her will.

Anthony Castrejon def. Frank Barragan via KO (liver kick) – 2nd round

Barragan came out impressively, winning round one and reddening the face of Castrejon.  Castrejon weathered the storm and landed a left hook followed by a left liver kick that left Barragan helpless on the canvas.

Shane Oblonsky def. Jose Palacios via unanimous decision
