Jay Bogan (5-4 MMA) looked outstanding in his fight against Jared Carlsten(3-2 MMA).  Bogan whose career has been surging of late never let Carlsten get comfortable. Although he was giving up a significant reach advantage, Bogan was able to control not only the distance but the pace of the fight as well. Frustrating his opponent.

Once the fight found its way to the mat Bogan was able to maintain position utilizing his wrestling and heavy top pressure. Carlsten tried to buck free, but Bogan ended up mounting him after sliding his knee over the belly. Shortly after Bogan slid to high mount, eliminating Carlsten’s hips and began reigning down with punches. After tasting a few shots, Carlsten turned away and covered up before the referee stepped in saving him from further assault.

Bogan like many other fighters was not feeling very well leading up to the event. Just getting over the flu, Bogan was still able to muster the resolve to not only step up but he performed tremendously in spite of the illness.  Now north of .500 for the first time in a long time, look for Bogan to fight again relatively soon. His current win streak coupled with his near flawless victory have him primed for a big show.

His wrestling pedigree, and high profile camp could have him on a short lost of injury replacements for the big shows.
