Asylum Fight League 46 took place this past Saturday at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and as usual it was a fantastic night of fights.

Two titles were up for grabs. The Asylum Fight League HW title remained around the waist of the NY Strangler Trevor McGovern, who improved to 7-1, with all 7 wins coming by way of rear naked choke submission.  And in the main event, for the vacant Asylum SHW title, Pat Egbert and Matt Hill fought a very tough 3 rounds, with the decision going to hill. Interestingly, it was the only fight on the card to go the distance. Yes, it was a crazy night, but we've come to expect that from the Asylum.

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

The Asylum Fight League is New Jersey's longest run amateur fight promotion, and their shows are must-see events for people in Atlantic City. Tomorrow night, Asylum Fight League 46 takes place at the famed Trump Taj Mahal casino hotel in AC, and this card is one of the Asylum's most anticipated ones yet.

Tickets for this show are almost sold out, so visit the Asylum Fight League website right now to get some before they are gone.

There are 2 title fights schedule, as well as a women's MMA match. So jump on those tix!

Rising New Jersey MMA star Frankie Perez makes his World Series of Fighting debut tonight against Tom Marcellino on NBC Sports. Perez is well known as one of the best fighters on the East Coast, and tonight is his chance to display his skills to a national audience. Frankie is 8-1 as a pro, with 5 submission victorys and 1 knockout. His one loss was a razor thin split decision to hightly touted Chris Wade, who recently made his UFC debut.

I've been covering Frankie Perez from early in his career. He is a talented fighter who is very dangerous both standing and on the ground. He has been improving by leaps and bounds and I think he's more than ready to show the MMA what he is capable of tonight on NBC.

Frankie is on the main card, and fights at 9:00pm. So be sure to check him out.

 

 

Yet another great fight has been added to an already stacked card at Asylum Fight League 46, which takes place on September 20, 2014 at the famed Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  Mike Gindt takes on Daniel Pereira in a match pitting two undefeated up and comers against each other. Gindt is coming off a TKO win while Pereira is coming of a submission victory.

Styles makes fights, and promoter/matchmaker Carl Mascarenhas, a former fighter himself, knows how to put together interesting match ups that explode inside the Asylum cage.

If you have never been to an Asylum Fight League event, do yourself a favor and get down to AC on September 20. You will not be disappointed. And as always, I'll be there hosting the show from inside the cage. So check out Asylum Fight League website for ticket info and get in on all the action.

These fights are insaaaane!
