NY NJ PA MMA

The Asylum Fight League crazy train is on track and it stops in Philadelphia, PA, tonight. The card is as usual stocked with some of the East Coast's finest amatuer fighters and I will be doing the ring announcing honors as always.  And of course I will be joining Ed Talmo on the mic for the GoFightLive.tv broadcast, which is LIVE and FREE.

Asylum Fight League's 26th show last Saturday night was one of the best I've seen.  It featured some brutal KOs and amazing subs.  Lou Neglia from the legendary Ring of Combat promotion was on hand to help make the event spectacular.  You can check out all the fights at GoFightLive.tv, where Ed Talmo and I were working the mic for the broadcast.  As usual I was also doing the ring announcing and had a blast. Complete results after the jump.

It's time for another Asylum Fight League show!  On February 27th at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City, NJ, Asylum Fight League 26 will be taking place.  I will be in the cage as always, proudly ring announcing tomorrow's MMA stars as they fight their way into the pro ranks.

It's always great to watch these up and coming amatuers in action.  Asylum's promoter, Carl Mascarenhas always puts on a great show and makes some amazing matches.  I'll have more on this event later in the week.  For now, check out out the Asylum Fight League website.  These fights are insane!

 

Great insider's article about Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat show last week written by Mike Constantino of AMA Fight Club, home of the UFC's Miller brothers.  I also did a quick video interview with the man himself, former world kickboxing champion Lou Neglia.  Check out the vid, then the article.

From AMA Fight Club:

Mike Medrano making his debut fighting for AMA Fight Club fought a great fight in an absolute slugfest that saw both fighters trading huge blows. Medrano took an illegal knee to the face and his opponent Jose Viera was deducted a point for the illegal blow. This only fueled “Muscle Mike” as he came out in the third round and continued the slugfest then shot in and took Viera down. After a scramble, Mike snatched up a guillotine to win by submission in what earlier was a slugfest. Congratulations to Mike Medrano on a great victory!

It's time for another Asylum Fight League show!  On February 27th at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City, NJ, Asylum Fight League 26 will be taking place.  I will be in the cage as always, proudly ring announcing tomorrow's MMA stars as they fight their way into the pro ranks.

It's always great to watch these up and coming amatuers in action.  Asylum's promoter, Carl Mascarenhas always puts on a great show and makes some amazing matches.  I'll have more on this event later in the week.  For now, check out out the Asylum Fight League website.  These fights are insane!

 

Lou Neglia delivered yet another spectacular show last night.  We were treated to a some great subs, brutal knockouts and closely fought decisions.  There was also a who's who of the MMA world in attendance, including UFC stars Matt Serra, Frankie Edgar, Jim Miller, Pete Sell and Renzo Gracie.  The WEC was also well represented by Miguel Torres, Donald Cerone, Leonard Garcia and Cub Swanson.  Even Bellator was in the mix with their undefeated star Lymond Good.

Ring of Combat has produced 32 fighters who have gone on to the UFC.  That's something of which promoter Lou Neglia is quite proud.  The main event featured a fighter who both Lou and I think will be another UFC star in the future, Gian Villante.  Gian, out of the Bellmore Kickboxing Academy, took just 40 seconds to choke out Mike Cook.  Mike was a last minute replacement for the very tough Bret Kohan, who suffered a concussion in a car crash.  Bret will be back, possibly in April at ROC XXVIV.

Ryan LaFlare, also of Bellmore Kickboxing, won the 170 pound title with a KO of  Justin Haskins.  Ryan is another rising star in MMA and he's going places.

You can check out the complete results after the jump.  I'll have more on this show in a few days.

Getting ready to head down to AC for Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat XXVIII tonight. Another great card featuring some of the area's top talent. Lou's shows have paved the way for many UFC stars, including former UFC champion Matt "The Terror" Serra, who recently crushed Frank Trigg with an amazing first round KO.

I'll be recapping the event in the next couple of days, so stay tuned. Complete card after the jump.

Wow, what a night of fights!  You never could have guessed that the fighters at AFL 24 last night were amateurs.  These guys fought their hearts out and left everything in cage.  In fact one fighter, James Funaro from Long Island, left so much in the cage that it took ten minutes for the staff to clean up the blood.

James was in an absolute war with Iron Mike Fischetti.  Iron Mike apparently broke Funaro's nose in the first round.  Funaro was not fazed, however, and continue battling but the blood was too much and referee Tom Velaquez stopped the bout. Fischetti has been dominant in his amateur career and he was absolutely beastly last night.  He's a kid who is going places.

In the two title fights, both Noah Faunce and Julio Arce showed why they are true champions.

Faunce fought the very tough and talented Pistol Pete Burdge for the vacant AFL 170 pound title.   Burdge held his own, but it appeared that Faunce was just a little too big and strong for him and won the decision.  Not surprising since Noah also holds the AFL 205 and 185 titles as well.

I am about to head down to Edison, NJ now where I will be ring announcing the Asylum Fight League's 24th show.  Tonight there are two titles on the line and foru undefeated fighters looking to retain or become champion.

In the 167 pound division, two undefeated fighters are clashing for the strap.  Current title holder Noah Faunce out of Long Island will look to remain champion against New Jersey's Pete Burdge who trains with the Pelligrino camp.  That fight alone is worth the price of admission.

In the 140 pound division, two more undefeated prospects will battle for the belt.  Julio Arce and Chris Wright will be mixing it up to see who leaves the cage with the title.

I am very excited about this card and can't wait for the action to begin.  Check out AsylumFightLeague.com for ticket info.

If you can't make the show live, it might be airing live on GoFightLive.tv.  It will be free, so check it out.  The broadcast depends on whether they can get a signal at the venue.
