Gold Medal MMA had to switch venues just two days before the show, and yet they managed to get it done, and the fans in attendance at Schuetzen Park were glad they did.  Twelve fights took place last night, and all of them were excellent.  I had a blast ring announcing the show, and look forward to the next Gold Medal MMA event.

Here are the official results from last night's action:

There has been a venue change for this Saturday's Gold Medal MMA show which was supposed to take place in Metuchen, New Jersey.  The show will now happen at the famed Schuetzen Park, 3167 Kennedy Boulevard, North Bergen, New Jersey, just minutes from the Lincoln Tunnel.  Schuetzen Park is a great venue and I've hosted quite a few shows there.  There is a bar and kitchen on site and it's always a party at Schuetzen Park.  It's not far from the original venue, so there is no need to miss this event.  Just reprogram your GPS and head on over to North Bergen, NJ!  See you at the show!

Get ready for Gold Medal MMA, coming to the Metuchen Sportspex in Metuchen, New Jersey this Saturday April 20, 2013!  Fifteen bouts are scheduled, featuring some of New Jersey's and the East Coast's finest amateur MMA talent.  Many great schools are represented on the card, and the Sportsplex is a great venue in which to enjoy mixed martial arts action.

I am honored to be hosting the show from inside the cage, and I'm looking forward to some great fights.  For tickets, hit up the Gold Medal MMA website or call 201-538-4843.  Check out the complete card below (card subject to change).

Warriors Cup XVI took place last night at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey.  It was a sold out event, and the place was packed with Muay Thai and MMA fans who could not get enough of the action throughout the night.  Warriors Cup is the premier Muay Thai promotion in the state of New Jersey and on the East Coast and it showed last night.

In the Class B amateur title fight, undefeated 125 pound Warriors Cup champion Robinson Marte (9-0) of Lions Roar Muay Thai Camp took on challenger Michael Giannone of Impact Muay Thai.  The fight lasted only 30 seconds, as Giannone scored a spectacular head kick knockout which earned him the Warriors Cup belt.  Definitely looking forward to his first title defense, possibly at Warriors Cup XVII on June 1st.

In the Class A 147 pound amateur title fight, champion Greg Rowe of Five Points NYC looked very impressive defeating talented challenger Arad Namin of North Jersey Muay Thai.  Rowe displayed excellent offense and defense throughout the fight, making Namin miss and making him pay en route to a five round unanimous decision.

On the card was a pair of WBC sanction professional bouts as well.  In the semi-main event, James "B-52" Smith took on Radu Spinghel of Borodin's Gym in a super heavyweight match up.  The fighters mixed it up well in round one, with Smith landing the bigger, cleaner shots on Springhel.  In round two, Smith suffered a shoulder injury and could not continue, which gave Springhel the victory by TKO.  Hopefully Smith, who is also a NJSACB official, will continue his Muay Thai career once his injury heals.

In the main event, the crowd was treated to a fast paced WBC sanctioned 168 pound title elimination bout  between Cyrus Washington of Sitan Gym NY and Strahinja Ivanovic  of Capital MMA.  Throughout the fight Washington punished Ivanovic with leg kicks.  Ivonovic was game though and tried for fire back, but Washington was too much for him.  Cyrus Washington won the fight by unanimous decision and earned the right to fight Warriors Cup champion Marcus Fisher at Warriors Cup XVII on June 1st.

All in all it was another outstanding Warriors Cup event.  If you missed it live, you can catch the replays on GoFightLive.  Stay tuned to this site and the Warriors Cup website for more info on the June 1 show.

Here are the official results from last night's action.

Another great night for MMA in New Jersey last night as Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat wowed the crowd with bell to bell action.  In the co-main event, Brutal Brendan Barrett more than lived up to his nickname with a devastating one punch KO to win the heavyweight crown.  And in the main event, Deividas Taurosevicus put on a grappling clinic en route to a second round rear naked choke victory, which was his fifth ROC title defense.  The undercard was fantastic as well, and the crowd was on its feet for most of the night.  If you missed the event live, you can check out the replay on GoFightLive.  Here are the official results from last night's action.

Warriors Cup XVI Muay Thai returns tomorrow April 6th at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey.  The venue is great and it's just outside the Lincoln Tunnel, which is fantastic news for NY fight fans.  I will be in the ring doing the announcing, and I am pumped for this event.  In the main event, a WBC sanction professional rules HW Muay Thai match, James "B52" Smith will look to drop bombs on Radu Spinghel, who will be looking to drop some bombs of his own.

The Co-main event features a WBC Super Middle Weight Title Elimination Bout featuring Cyrus Washington of Sitan Gym NY vs. Strahinja Ivanovic of Capital MMA.

This is a card that is not to be missed!  If you can't make it to Schuetzen Park, you can catch the action live on GoFightLive.

Here is the complete card for tomorrow night's action.
