Lightweight Main Event
Carlo Prater (28-10-1) SUB (Kimora) Cameron Dollar (9-3)
Time of Submission: 1:52 in round two
Dollar’s quest to return to the UFC has been momentarily set back at the hands of local favorite Carlo Prater. After a tentative opening round, one in which Prater opened up a nasty cut on Dollar’s head, Prater ended things in spectacular fashion with a painful kimora that forced Dollar to tap
Legacy Featherweight Championship Co-Main Event
Daniel Pineda (14-7) SUB (Rear Naked Choke) Frank Gomez (10-4)
Time of Submission: 2:25 in round three
Though it only lasted three rounds, this bout was a war of attrition as both fighters gave it their all in the night’s co-main event. Early on it seemed that Gomez was in control as he opened up a nasty cut on Pineda with a slicing elbow. With the pace slowing down Pineda was able to eventually take Gomez’s back in the third and after softening him up with some ground and pound sunk in the rear naked choke to end the fight.
Pete Spratt (23-20) KO Antonio Flores (5-3)
Time of Knockout: 0:25 in round one
It’s hard to believe that Spratt is 40 years old. This fact is made harder to swallow when the Texas native puts on breathtaking performances like this one against Flores. Spratt threw one punch and that is all it took. A lighting quick left hook with a full torque landed flush on the temple of Flores who went down like he was shot. Fight over.
Jonathan Mackles (9-2) SUB (Guillotine)Chad Robichaux (11-2)
Time of Submission: 0:45 in round one
Wow, what an upset! The unheralded Mackles scored a huge upset against Gracie Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and Houston superstar Robichaux sinking in a vice grip guillotine seconds into the opening round. Robichaux tried to fight through it but it was simply too tight and the Bellator vet was forced to tap.
Jesus Rivera (5-2) TKO (Strikes) Rey Trujillo (8-7)
Time of Stoppage: 1:53 round 3
Trujillo looked to impress early winging wild kicks and punches that had him looking like a poor man’s Chung Le. Envetually it was Rivera who eventually took Trujillo’s will and ended up reigning down some unanswered strikes in the third round that promoted the referee to stop the bout.
Justin Reiswerg (3-1) UD Mark Ramirez (3-2)
Scores: 30-27, 30-27, 30-27
This was a battle of two Houston area prospects that showed hints of real talent as Riswerg and Ramirez engaged in a three round spirited battle. Ramirez was game throughout but Reiswerg’s stand up game was simply too much. Despite being rocked on a couple of occasions, Reiswerg was able to battle back and bloody and bruise up Ramirez with hard combinations throughout the rounds.
