Fight #1

Mike Kubeska (0-1-1) vs Fard Muhammad (2-3) 135 lbs

Rd1: Back and forth first round that found both fighters alternating dominant position. Early on it was Kubeska threatening from his back, after Muhammad established the striking game. The end of the round found Muhammad on top, landing with some IQ changing ground and pound.

Rd2:Round two very much like the previous frame. The carousel kept spinning as again each fighter took their turn scoring. Once again Muhammad finished the frame on top, although Kubeska continued to start the round strong.

Rd: After repeated warnings, Muhammad again spit the bit prompting a one point deduction from veteran Referee Mike Beltran. Despite the penalty, Muhammad was still able to emerge victorious in a fight that the judges saw from three completely different perspectives (28-28, 29-27, 28-27) giving Muhammad the majority decision.

Fight #2

Jalin Turner (0-0) vs Eric Steans (4-4) 155 lbs

Fight #3

Heinrich Wassmer (2-0) vs Keenan Lewis (0-0) 125 lbs

Rd1: Hotly contested first frame. Wassmer seemed content to stand and trade with the much larger Lewis.But eventually found himself  on the mat underneath his larger foe. Lewis took the first frame.

Rd2: Quickly Wassmer closes to get the fight to the mat. After some time without improving his position Referee Mike Beltran stands them back up. A failed takedown from Wassmer finds Lewis on his back. Costly mistake for Wassmer perhaps.
