It was a great night of action tonight at Century Casino, Calgary. HK30 provided knockouts, submissions and some gruelling decisions. All of the fights were great, and some defining moments of the night included:
-Zach Snyder defeats Randy Chung to win the Amateur 145 lbs. Title, via Decision after 5 rounds. During his Interview after the fight, Snyder says the belt represents “Hard Work”. Congratulations go to Zach, and a great effort from Randy Chung.
– A viscious First Round KO from Dale Tallman. He likes the small gloves apparently, since transitioning from Boxing to MMA.
-An impressive debut from Rob Nelson against Keegan Oliver. It was a great back-and-forth match with some great wrestling and grappling. Even though Nelson was up to the challenge, Keegan Oliver improved his record to 5-0 via Decision.
-Jeff Porter got his hand raised, but could hardly stand for his post fight interview, after rolling with Josh Griffin for 3 exhausting rounds to secure the Decision Win.
-In the Main Event of the evening, Michael Madrid took a Split Decision win over Ryan Machan in a tilt between two very experienced Mixed Martial Artists.
