Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat 45 takes place tonight at the Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  The ROC is one of the top promotions outside the UFC and Bellator, and 80 of its fighters have gone on the big show.   At every ROC show, you can watch tomorrow's stars today, and tonight's card is chock full of tomorrow's stars.  The weigh ins for this event took place last night, and I have to official weights below.

I'll be down in AC commentating the fights for the GFL/Comcast broadcast, so if you can't make it to the venue, be sure to tune in on GFL.tv.

Here are the official weigh in results:

Dead Serious MMA's Night of Champions rocked the Collins Arena last night.  Four new champions were crowned, and one champ continued his reigned.  It was a great night of fights, and I had a blast MCing the event.  Shawn Baran will be doing a breakdown of the evening for this site, so stay tuned for that.  And I'll have some pics from Chastity Cortijo's Fight Night Pics as well.  In the meantime, here are the official results from last night's bouts:

Dead Serious MMA has earned its reputation as one of the finest amateur MMA promotions in the country.  Promoter Frankie Perez and his family have a passion for the sport that is unmatched. And on June 8, Dead Serious MMA returns to the Collins Arena with its biggest show yet: Night of Champions.

Dead Serious MMA cards are always filled with top level talent.  Night of Champions will feature fighters from  major camps such as Renzo Gracie, Marcelo Garcia, Kurt Pellegrino, Tiger Schulmann, Ricardo Almeida, Nick Catone, All Star BJJ, Animal MMA, Modern Martial Arts, AMA Fight Club, Madama BJJ, Wilkies Warriors, Codella Academy, Mike Massenzio and many others.

On June 8, Dead Serious MMA's Night of Champions will have seven titles up for grabs.  It is one of the most anticipated fight cards of the year.

The event takes place at the famed Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey.  It's a great venue and a fitting location to crown seven champions in one night.  This is truly and can't-miss event, and I can't wait to get into the cage to announce the champions.

In yet another outstanding show, history was made last night at Warriors Cup XVII.  The East Coast's first ever full rules female Muay Thai bout took place, followed by the first ever full rules female title fight.  The female title fight, for the vacant Warriors Cup female 138 pound title, featured Christina "X" Peteraf vs. Laurel "The Cookie Monster" Holloway, and was a non-stop barn-burner.  Both women refused to take a step back and both fought like champions.  In the end, Holloway won a close but unanimous decision and is now the reigning Warriors Cup champion.

There were two other title fights last night as well.  In the Warriors Cup 155 pound division, champion Rich Brattole was in beast mode and looked devastation in stopping talented Jovan Davis.  Brattole came out and established a furious pace, working his opponent over with punches and kicks.  He finished Davis in the second round, and in do so had the crowd on its feet.

In the Warriors Cup 130 pound division, champion Rudy Felix showed why he's the champ in winning a lopsided unanimous decision over tough Youyoung Cho.  Cho was game but Felix was quicker and landed some big punches and kicks throughout the fight to retain his title.  It was yet another great performance for Rudy Felix.

In the night's main event, a professional rules Muay Thai match featuring MMA star Lyman "Cyborg" Good vs. Strahinja Ivanovic, Good lived up to Cyborg nickname by putting his opponent on blast for five grueling rounds.  Ivanovic showed great toughness in the match, but Good never let up, coming forward every minute of every round.  His body shots were a thing of body, and they set up his head shots.  Ivanovic never gave up, however, and he threw right back at Good.  Good won the match by unanimous decision to remain undefeated in his kickboxing career.

Overall, it was yet another great night of action at the Warriors Cup, which is far and away the best Muay Thai promotion on the East Coast.  The next Warriors Cup show is September 7, and I am already looking forward to it.  Here are the official results from last night's bouts:

Warriors Cup XVII takes place this Saturday, June 1 at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey.  The highly anticipated Muay Thai event features MMA star Lyman Good taking on highly regarded Strahinja Ivanovic in the main event.  Warriors Cup also makes history once again by bringing us the first ever full rules female Muay Thai fight in the state of New Jersey, when Christine Peteraf  of Cool Hearts Muaythai Camp takes on Lauren Holloway of Sitan Gym NY.

I am honored to once again be hosting this show from inside the ring at Schuetzen Park, and can't wait for the first bell to ring.  These shows always sell out, so jump on your chance for tickets by visiting the Warriors Cup website.

If you can't make it down to the venue, you can catch the action live on GoFightLive.

Asylum Fight League 41 once again lived up to the Asylum's credo that "these fights are insane!"  We saw subs, KOs and closely contested decisions enroute to a great night of mixed martial arts action.  Promoter Carl Mascarenhas showed off his great matchmaking skills in putting together a great card for the fans.  In the main event, a new Asylum Fight League champion was crowned. Joe Lowry took on Rick Ebert for the title, and after 3 grueling rounds, Lowry was victorious, winning by unanimous decision.

If you missed the show live, you can still catch the replays on GoFightLive.tv.  So check it out!

Here are the official results:

The Asylum Fight League is one of New Jersey's longest running MMA promotions, and with good reason.  Promoter Carl Mascarenhas, a former fighter himself, knows what it means to get into a cage and leave it all on the mat.  He has consistently put on some of the most fight exciting cards in all of  MMA.  On May 25, Carl will be putting on his 41st show, a card that is as stacked as Asylum fans have come to expect.

The venue, as always, is the Golden Nugget Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.   It is one of the best venues I've ever had the pleasure of ring announcing in, and I am very much looking forward to this show.  If you've never been to an Asylum show, do yourself a favor and check it out live on May 25. You will see why Asylum's fights are insane!
