What a beautiful dance it was! Taking turns leading the destructive tango both Marcos Bonilla (2-1 MMA) and Christian Bizaretty (1-2 MMA) each had their moments. The two fighters traded kicks early and often in a scrap that ended up being one of the most competitive fights of the evening.

Bonilla appeared to be landing the cleaner, more powerful strikes. However Bizaretty absorbed everything and still kept moving forward. Moving well behind his jab, Bonilla kept the pressure on and appeared to be clearly ahead on points. Bizaretty was able to score with a quick take down but was never really able to threaten from a dominant position. While on his back, Bonilla was very active and attacked with an nice arm-bar that he ended up using to sweep back to a neutral position.

Even a  foul (grounded head strike) that cost Bonilla a point was only enough to make the score close. Bonilla was awarded with the majority decision. One judge scored the fight a draw, but he was overruled by the other two ring side officials who scored the bout for Bonilla.

The win for Bonilla reaffirms his recent signing to Bellator MMA. His first fight for the promotion has been signed and with this win he will carry some pretty good momentum into the biggest fight of his life. The loss although tough to digest for Bizaretty will not define him as a fighter. He will certainly be back better than ever.

Bronson Casarez is a young tough kid, with lofty aspirations. Following in his teammate Joshua Aveles’s (Current KOTC 170lbs and 160lbs Champion) footsteps, the Team Diamond product entered his last fight at Hollywood Fight Night 8 as a last minute replacement. He emerged a prospect, with a ton of attention. In that fight, Casarez outpointed 135lbs stalwart Dmitry Gerasimov in a very close fight. The win bolstered the young fathers confidence and moved him onto a short list of players in his division.

Casarez is now set to take on his toughest opponent to date in Jared Papazian. Papazian a former UFC veteran is coming off a big win in his last fight over Ara Muradyan and is looking to make the jump back to the UFC with an impressive win over a hungry young opponent. Don’t let the experience differential fool you, the fight should be a classic brawl, as neither fighter has the ‘backup’ in their vocabulary!

Also appearing on the card in support of the main event in a co-feature Muay Thai specialist Casey Greene takes a very tough Mario Delgado. Coming off a huge win in his last bout over Derrion Chapman, Richard Leroy is set to return to the Lightsout Ring against submission specialist David Fabian who is making his pro debut.

The preliminary card is also filled with local talent, featuring some excellent match-ups. Systems Training Center Eric Rios is looking to rebound from his first loss against another fighter,  Levon Sargsyan who is in the exact same position. Fighting out of Glendale Fighting Club, Sargsyan is also searching for his first win as a pro. Both fighters have explosive hands, and the matchup is an early favorite for fight of the night.

Featured on the preliminary card are some highly touted local prospects such as HarQore HQ’s/10thPlanet/The Yard product Matthew Spencer, Glendale’s Alfred Kashakyan, Systems Training Center’s Jared Carlsten, and of course Muay Thai Legend Jemyma Betrian who is looking for her second win as a mixed martial artist in as many bouts.

Betrian is perhaps the best prospect currently not in the UFC strawweight division. Although only 1-0 as a mixed martial artist, Betrian’s striking pedigree makes her one of the most dangerous women in the world at her weight. This may very well be the last time to catch her fight outside of the UFC.

If you have never been to a Lights Out Promotions/Bash Boxing card you are certainly in for a treat. The unique blend of combat offers a taste of ever discipline to even the most elite of combat fans. The unique atmosphere, beautiful woman, and celebrity attendees add to an always explosive card.

Bash Boxing and Lights Out Promotions put on one hell of a show last night at Hollywood Fight Night 8. The event took place at the Florentine Gardens on Hollywood Blvd. Keeping with the spirit of Halloween several of the gorgeous ring card girls were dawning scantily clad costumes that at times made it difficult to watch the fights. After all, with a perfect ten dressed as a she devil, attentions tend to shift and quickly! In between the madness there were some pretty entertaining fights.

Several of the fighters were making their professional debuts. Although not well known names, these fellas gave all they had in the ring. On the boxing side of the card, Urmat Ryskeldiev (9-3-1) probably had the most impressive outing. Utilizing his superior speed, Ryskeldiev finished his opponent journeyman Bernardo Guereca (17-22-1) with a liver rattling shot on a level change. Once the referee surveyed the damage, the count wasn’t continued. Also winning via corner stoppage was Stanyslav Skorokhod (8-0). Skorokhod used his range to pick apart David Lopez (4-11-3) who proved to be too tough for his own good. After absorbing some heavy punishment the corner informed the inspector to “throw in the towel”, Now undefeated after 8 bouts a step up in competition is needed.

Former title contender Avtandil Khurtsidze (29-2-2) returned to form by systematically destroying perennial thorn Eddie Hunter in their 162 lbs bout. Khurtsidze led a charge throughout the fight behind his forehead, which caused many butts throughout the fight. Hunter early on gave as well as he received but eventually his combinations fell off, and instead looked for the home run shot that never came. Khurtsidze hammered the body of Hunter relentlessly and after it became apparent their was little he could do to swing the fight in his favor, the corner threw in the towel, giving Khurtsidze the TKO win.

The MMA portion of the card featured several of Southern California’s favorite sons including Derion Chapman, Richard Leroy, Thor Skancke, Daniel Clark, Dmitry Gerasimov, Bronson Casarez, Christian Bizaretty, Adel Al Tamimi, Gabriel Lopez, and Matthew Spencer.

Christian Bizaretty withstood an early attack from Adel Al Tamimi to earn a late first round TKO. Bizaretty once on the ground controlled Al Tamimi and reined down elbows from the mount prompting the stoppage from referee John McCarthy.

The same can be said of Tapout LA’s Matthew Spencer. His opponent Gabriel Lopez was able to suplex Spencer in WWF fashion, dropping him on the back of his head. However once the slam was completed, Spencer quickly recovered a hook, and immediately took the back. Lopez fought of a few armbar attempts, and a late choke, but eventually Spencer’s forearm slipped under the chin and his only choice was to tap or to sleep, he chose the earlier.

Bronson Casarez fighting out of Diamond MMA in Upland CA, on 5 days noticed outworked a very game Dmitry Gerasimov in what we thought was the best fight of the evening. Both fighters kept a furious pace, and threw defense to the wind in a classic brawl. When the score cards were read Casarez was declared the winner, however one score card read 30-27 giving Casarez every round. If you watched the fight there is no way this is possible. The guy who won probably should have, however I scored the bout the other way.

Even Ray Charles would have saw the third frame for Gerasimov. Once again the question is raised. What fight was that judge watching? The controversy despite its ridiculous judgement cannot shadow an amazing performance from a young fighter who has a bright future ahead of him. Casarez now 5-1 as a pro is back on track after a long layoff. Gerasimov’s stock also rises. Once again his reputation of putting on entertaining fights will continue to keep him relevant. Eventually a decision has to go his way.

House of Champions Derion Chapman, and Sityodtong LA’s Richard Leroy engaged in a heated bout that had the crowd on their feet the entire time.  Early on Chapman’s speed seem to give the much larger Leroy difficulty. Utilizing his jab, Chapman peppered Leroy blackening his eye, and causing a leak early. Leroy stayed patient and started to land some nasty dirty boxing late in the first round. In the second frame the power differential became more obvious as Leroy rocked Chapman several times. Once Leroy was able to ground Chapman’s lighting attack, he was able to secure a choke late in the 3rd round to ensure the win. Chapman whose size may see him down a weight class in the future, will certainly be heard from again.

Crowd favorite Thor Skancke took on a very tough Daniel Clark in the co-main event of the evening. Normally extremely aggressive, Skancke seemed hesitant early and that opened the door for Clark, who secured it shut with some vicious punches. The win brings Clark’s record as a pro to the left side of .500 at 3-2. The impressive first round stoppage over a well known fighter will raise Clark’s stock dramatically, while Skancke will have to return to the gym to continue to refine his craft.
