Joshua ‘El Rey’ Aveles once again defended his 160lbs crown by knocking out Sam Liera in the second round of their title fight. Aveles currently sits atop the 160 and 170lbs divisions, and with another highlight finish, should be on his way to the UFC. Winner of 10 of his last 12 fights, Aveles seems to be heading down to the 155 lbs division, where his powerful punches will certainly inspire nightmares.

Daniel ‘El Leon’ Hernandez also earned a strap, as he defeated Brandon Hunt to earn the 185 lbs title that former champion Sean Strickland vacated when he signed with the UFC. Hernandez possesses a strong wrestling base with I.Q. changing ground and pound. Now a title holder, Hernandez is 5-1 in his last 6 fights, and will be looking to take on all comers in the 185lbs division.

Congratulations to two champions who have grown tremendously as fighters inside and outside of the cage.

    Aveles didn’t knock out Liera. Sam Liera fell back and told the ref he couldn’t get back up because his legs gave out due to exhaustion. He never went out and we all know that.
