The Fight wrap up – thanks to MRMT from the sportzblitz forums.

“Taylor Harvey with a solid points win over Mark Sarracino. It was a tough fight and was pretty close in the end with Mark coming back in the dying stages but not enough to get the win. Taylor showed great strength in the clinches and countered very effectively. Handled Mark very well throughout and rattled him a few times. Nice win.

Daddy cool wins with a split points decision over Ts2. This fight was a good display of aggression from both ends. Ts2 landing some good hand combos. Dane never backed up and pushed forward all fight and countered most of Ts2’s attacks well. He split TS2(elbow)in the 2nd or 3rd round and Ts2 never looked too comfortable after this. It was a SPD but I thought Dane had him outpointed 3 maybe even 4 rounds.

Soren wins by TKO in the 5th round. Let me just say “fight of the night!!”. Sean started extremely well with sharp hands and troubled Soren for the first 2 rounds. Soren began to find his range soon after and worked the body shots and step up knees to brutal perfection. It then turned into an elbow fest with both fighters landing clean elbows and trading them like ABC childcare shares. Sean ended up with some nasty cuts and Soren exposed his right ribs with his knees. Fight was called off as cut was too deep and the end of an awesome battle of MT elbows. Sean is a tough biscuit.

Carnage beats Manue by TKO in 2nd round with leg kick to lead leg. Carnage is absolutely the most destructive fighter in his weight by far. He is so fast and powerful that there was little that Manue could do to hurt Carnage. Carnage’s speed and power is frightening and even at this weight, I honestly do not think anyone stands a chance. He is undoubtedly a wreaking machine. clinical and precise. Look out Spong cause Carnage does not need elbows to finish anyone off. He really is mind blowing in action except for the little lapse in concentration in the 1st round where he dropped for an 8 count(I just missed this minute or so as nature called).

Preacher beat Wolf by split points decision. Preacher just didn’t look too sharp tonight. He was busy as usual but didn’t land many shots and wasted alot of energy doing this. Wolf looked to trouble him with his evasiveness and nearly clinched this one in the end. This was a close fight and could of gone either way as Wolf countered Preacher really well all fight. Preacher was never in real trouble of getting knocked but only just got through with his workrate. He even looked a little relieved when he was given the nod by the judges. He should bounce back well after this win.

Well now to JWP. Tum wins by UPD. Tum had a fightplan and stuck to it. Tum kept his distance all fight and avoided JWP hands. When it got close though, Tum used his grappling experience to lock JWP up all fight and dumped JWP many times. I think he jagged/dumped JWP 10-15 times which displays his awesome ability in the clinch. JWP had his chances early on but found himself behind in the early rounds with catch up on his mind all fight. Tum was just too good in the close exchanges and actually tought JWP a lesson or two tonight in the art of MT grapple. JWP will learn from this and will come back stronger next time. JWP such a humble guy and gives credit to Tum in the after fight talk, he says it was a loss and thats all it was, a loss. You can’t win them all champ and that is why JWP is so well respected. Humble in victory and defeat.”
