Coming off a disappointing loss in his last bout, Thor Skancke (6-5 MMA) came into his bout with Daniel McWilliams (9-25 MMA) with a new camp, and a reinvigorated mindset. Both of which apparently served him well. Skancke dispatched McWilliams midway through the first round via submission due to Americana.

Skacnke displayed his superior striking early on before the fight found its way to the mat. While there, the savvy McWilliams threatened from his back with a few trianlge and armbar attempts, that Skancke  was able to break through. From side control Skancke found himself in possession of McWilliams arm. Once the wrist lock was in place the torque on the arm did damage immediately forcing McWilliams to tap.

The win brings Skancke’s record to 6-5 as a pro. Hopefully it will not be long until we see Thor Skancke in Lights Out/Bash Boxing cage.

Glendale Fighting Club is of course well known for being the gym where UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey plies her trade under the careful tutelage of Coach Edmund Tarverdyan, The Gym is also the home of some other well known UFC fighters. However their young pros maybe one of the best kept secrets in MMA.

One of those young fighters is Alfred Kashakian (3-1 MMA). Kashakian carried his two fight win streak into Friday nights engagement against David Hernandez. Apparently Kashakian had other pressing engagements, because he didn’t waste anytime. Charging across the ring he attacked at the opening bell, and immediately had Hernandez reeling.

Hernandez did his best to stand and trade with Kashakian but fell like an oak tree when his button was pressed. Kashakian dropped Hernandez with a series of shots, that just made gravity impossible to resist. Immediately the referee stepped in calling a halt to the bout, as Hernandez was lying face first. The impressive KO electrified the crowd, and set the tone for the rest of the evening!

The win puts Kashakian on the radar as a top prospect in his division, adding another polished stone to the cadre they are collecting in Glendale!
