In whats been fight of the night to this point, Drew Yeadon defeats Joe Movessian by split decision. This one was a back and forth banger that saw both guys drop the other at different points in the fight. The crowd did not agree with the decision, as the pro-Movessian crowd felt he had done enough to earn the victory. Regardless, awesome fight between this two debuting amateurs. Keep an eye out for both these guys, as they looked incredibly sharp for two guys competing in MMA for the first time.

Nick Fiore vs. Jerome Mickle (165 lb Pro MMA)
2-0 Nick Fiore takes on the toughest opponent of his young career in Mickle. Ealry on Mickle is winning the striking battle on the feet, but Fiore eventually gets the fight to the mat and works his superior ground game in top position. He eventually mounts Mickle and rains down some heavy elbows before the ref steps in to stop the fight. Fiore weathered the early storm, and showed some toughness before he got the fight to where he wanted it.
Carlton Charles vs. Spencer Payne (185 lb Amateur MMA Championship)
I've seen Spencer Payne fight a few times, and he's been nothing but impressive in the cage. This fight was no different. Payne had Charles in an arm triangle for the final minute of the 1st round, but he couldn't get it locked up to finish the submission, as Charles defended well. In the 2nd round Payne throws a head kick as Charles was changing levels, and it landed flush on the chin, knocking out Charles early in the 2nd round. Spencer Payne is a serious problem for middleweights in the region. He's now 4-0 and will surely be at the top of the heap in the ammy 185 rankings when they come out before the end of the year.
