Warriors Cup XVIII took place last night at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey, and what a night it was!  The top of the card featured two WBC sanctioned title fights, and both fights had the crowd on its feet.  In the main event, for the vacant WBC 130 International Challenge title, Rami Ibrahim came out blasting against the tough and talented Boom Watthanaya.  Rami kept up an unbelievable pace and landed more on his very game opponent, winning a unanimous decision from the judges.  Rami had the backing of the SRO crowd, who roared their approval throughout the fight.  After smiling throughout the five rounds, emotion caught up with Rami after the decision was announced, and he immediately embraced his Mom, standing ringside, in a very touching moment. It was a fantastic finish to an amazing night of Muay Thai action.

In the co-main event, Cyrus Washington and Marcus Fisher battled it out in a fast-paced, frenetic contest.  Both men had their moments, but Washington landed some of the cleaner shots and came away with the unanimous decision.  The fight was a non-stop back and forth battle, and it really amped the crowd for the main event.

The rest of the card was great as well.  There were KOs and split decisions, and a great time was had by all at the event.  Warriors Cup is the premier Muay Thai promotion on the East Coast, and last night was just further proof.  If you were unable to catch the action live, you can check out the replays on GoFightLive.

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

New Jersey's premier amateur fight promotion, the Asylum Fight League, has found a new home at the Trump Taj Mahal.  AFL president and CEO Carl Mascarenhas and Taj Mahal executives worked out a deal that will keep the Asylum Fight League at the Taj Mahal for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014.

The Trump Taj Mahal is one of the hottest casino hotels in Atlantic City, and it is kicking up the intensity with the addition of the Asylum Fight League.

"As a promoter," Carl Mascarenhas said, "I have an opportunity to work with a lot of great people, and I am truly excited to work with the staff at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic city. They run an exceptional venue and have pulled out the stops to welcome Asylum to the Taj."

The first show at the new venue will take place on September 28, 2013, with Asylum Fight League 42. As always, this card is stacked with the best MMA talent on the East Coast, and Mascarenhas, who also acts as matchmaker couldn't be happier the lineup.

"We have another action packed fight night including two title fights," he said.  "Keith Knudsen vs. Bill-Borawski, and Atlantic City's Travis Spadafora vs. Atlantic City's undefeated Kevin Perez."

In addition there is also a featured female fight between Bridget McEliece and Clarissa Padua, which is destined to bring the crowd to its feet.

As always, the Asylum Fight League intends to wow the audience with the best MMA action anywhere.

As Carl Mascarenhas says:  "You will have a seat but will only need the edge because these fights are truly insane."

If you've ever been to an Asylum show, you'll know those words ring true.  And if not, make sure to check out this latest event at the Taj Mahal.

"This is our 42nd show," Carl said, "and it will be a killer. Asylum is number one for a reason:  We are INSANE!"

AS VEGAS (Aug. 26, 2013) - A trio of contests have been added to September's "World Series of Fighting 5: Arlovski vs. Kyle" lineup, as Rick "The Gladiator" Glenn (13-2-1) meets Artur Rofi (6-0), Ozzy Dugulubgov (4-1) faces Andrew "Ozzy" Osbourne (7-5) and Sidemar "Sideco" Honorio (8-3) takes on Jimmie "El Terror" Rivera (12-1).

With the additions to the evening's preliminary fight card, the World Series of Fighting 5 lineup now includes 10 total fights.

Tickets for World Series of Fighting 5 are currently on sale at all Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster.com and charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000. A heavyweight slugfest between sambo master Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski (19-10) and slugger Mike "MAK" Kyle (20-9-1) serves as the evening's main event.

The night's NBC Sports Network-televised main card also includes previously announced middleweight tournament bouts of David Branch (12-3) vs. Danillo "Indio" Villefort (14-4) and Elvis "The King" Mutapcic (13-2) vs. Jesse "JT Money" Taylor, as well as a heavyweight matchup of Rolles Gracie (8-1) vs. Derrick "Caveman" Mehmen (15-5) and a featherweight contest between Georgi Karakhanyan (21-3-1) and Waylon Lowe (14-4).

An Iowa native, featherweight Glenn now lives in Wisconsin, where he's a part of Milwaukee's famed Roufusport MMA Academy. Training since he was a teenager, the 24-year-old prospect opened his career at just 3-2 but has since gone 11 straight fights without a loss. Glenn made his World Series of Fighting debut in March, where he earned a third-round knockout over Alexandre Pimentel.

Glenn now meets New Jersey's own Rofi, a Team Bittencourt fighter who has earned all six of his career wins by way of stoppage. After opening his career in October 2010 with a knockout win, Rofi has since tapped out five consecutive opponents.
