by Ryan MacDonald

MMAinVA.com reports from the South End Fire Hall, in Winchester, VA, Saturday, September 20, at approximately 7:00 PM EST with the play-by-play and results for Revolution Fight Series 10. 


Desmond Torres v. Anthony Jackson

Round 1

Anthony Jackson opened up with an obvious game plan to employ fast, hard kicks.  Several kicks connected to Torres, but Torres was able to close the distance and get the takedown.  Torres gained full mount, employed solid ground and pound until Jackson turned away and gave up his back.  Torres quickly sunk in the rear-nake choke and the tap came at 1:22 of Round 1, by rear-naked choke.

                                         


Evan Green v. Will Anderson 

Round 1

In a Muay Thai rules bout, Disciple Academy's Evan Green showed great technique and technical combos.  Anderson was able to connect on several solid body kicks, but Green seemed to figure out his timing and was able to catch and counter, toward the end of the round, connecting with numerous strikes.

Round 2

Green remained the busier, more accurate fighter, in round 2.  Anderson was, again, able to connect to the body with kicks, which left Green's left side red and welted, but was unable to capitalize on those kicks as he was slow to follow them up with anything else.  

Round 3

Round 3 was slowed, as Green absorbed a groin shot, early in the round.  He was able to recover, but didn't seem like the same fighter as he was in the first two.  Anderson was able to, again, connect with a solid body kick and was able to connect on a nice low kick.  Anderson engaged a clinch and was able to land numerous knee strikes to Green's mid-section.  The fight went to the judges and the judges scored a Split Decision victory for Will Anderson (28-29, 29-28, 30-27).

Evan West v. Andrew Howard

Round 1

Both fighters exchanged advantage against the cage as they went for a clinch early in the fight.  Howard secured a double leg takedown and worked his ground and pound, on West, from half-guard.  Howard opened up a deep cut over West's right eye, which bled profusely.  The referee called time and the Doctor was called in to look at the cut and promptly called a stop to the fight at 2:46 of Round 1, via TKO due to Doctor's stoppage.  Howard is your winner.


Adam Hughes v. Roberto Gonzalez

Round 1

Gonzalez opened up this Muay Thai rules bout at a blistering pace, putting the pedal to the metal early.  Fighting as if it were only a one round fight, Gonzalez landed punch after punch, unanswered by Hughes.  Hughes' face was as red as his gloves.  It appeared, however, that Gonzalez may have punched himself out, prior to getting a second wind with about 20 seconds left in the round.  Hughes landed a knockdown with what must have been about one second left in the round.

Round 2

Noticeably tired, coming out of the corner, Gonzalez was not able to get off as quickly as he did  in the first.  Hughes was the crisper fighter and at the 1:10 mark of the round, landed a knee to Gonzalez' mid-section that instantly dropped the fighter to his knees.  Gonzalez was unable to continue and referee Bill Bookwalter waved the fight off.  Hughes is your winner by TKO at 1:10 of Round 2.


Kobi Scott v. Oscar Garcia

Round 1

14-year old, Garcia, took the fight to the ground very quickly.  Scott was able to get back to his feet, but fell into a guillotine choke and appeared to go unconscious on his feet.  The referee didn't appear to see that and the fight fell to the mat, where the ref called a stop.  Your winner is Oscar Garcia via guillotine choke at 1:08 of Round 1.


Anthony Cordero v. Edwin Gonzalez

Round 1

Cordero, of Disciple Academy, came out cool, calm and collected.  His opponent was the more active fighter, landing a successful spinning back kick.  Cordero, who was not as busy, landed the more meaningful shots, however, and appeared to be gauging his opponent for a later round.

Round 2

Gonzalez started out as the more active fighter, but took a HUGE head kick that almost dropped him.  Still stunned by the head shot, Gonzalez initiated a clinch and caught his opponent with a low knee that caused a stop in the action, as Cordero recovered.  Cordero came back and connected with a body kick that hurt Gonzalez and caused referee Bill Bookwalter to give a standing eight count, which closed out the round.

Round 3

Gonzalez, again, started the round being the aggressor, but was unable to connect with any shots.  Cordero began to pick his leg apart with low kicks, which caused Gonzalez two buckle, numerous times.  Cordero was more aggressive with his follow-ups, when he saw Gonzalez injured, connecting with a brutal head kick, but Gonzalez kept coming.  After a series of low leg  kicks to Gonzalez' leg, Bookwalter stepped in and called another standing eight count, which closed out the final round.  The decision went to the judges who scored it, resoundingly for Cordero, 30-24, 30-27, 30-25.

Matt Indiero v. Mumia Dey Ali

Round 1

Mumia Dey Ali came out like a house of fire and simply overwhelmed Indiero with his striking.  The fight made it to the ground and Indiero looked to try and grab an ankle lock, but was unsuccessful.  Ali regained position and lowered the boom on Indiero, via the ground and pound and the fight was stopped at 1:17 of Round 1, via TKO, for the winner, Mumia Dey Ali.  VERY impressive performance, by Ali.


Adam Levy v. Jake Darr

Round 1

Two high level strikers took to the cage in this Muay Thai rules bout.  Levy and Darr exchanged , back and forth, with sharp strikes and technical combos.  Levy received a devastating low kick to the groin and on the way to the mat, also suffered a left hook from Darr.  Levy recovered and closed out Round 1 as the more effective striker.

Round 2

The two fighters clinched up and were exchanging knees and Levy got caught with another low blow, which referee, Bill Bookwalter, penalized with a point deduction from Darr.  Levy came back focused and looked to begin to pick Darr apart with head kicks, low leg kicks and fast punch combos.  Darr weathered the storm and returned fire, getting Levy against the cage and unleashing a garage of strikes and knees.  The final knee dropped Levy, causing referee Bookwalter to give a standing eight count.  Levy was unable to recover and unable to answer the bell for the third round, declaring Darr the winner.


Pablo Garcia v. David Simpson

Round 1

Disciple Academy's Pablo Garcia came out against a much bigger opponent, in Simpson, and was on the offensive as Simpson looked to exert his size advantage and take down the smaller fighter.  Garcia would have none of it, successfully sprawling the takedown attempt, and scrambling to try and take Simpson's back.  Simpson was able to power his way back to his feet, which was not a good decision, as Garcia hit him with a straight left, dropped Simpson with another punch and pounced for the TKO, due to unanswered strikes at the 51 second mark of Round 1.


Chris Sanders v. Luther Smith

Round 1

In a Muay Thai rules bout for the RFS Heavyweight title, a very fit and in shape Luther Smith showed off the skills taught to him at Level Up Boxing Gym and held a clinic on his opponent, Chris Sanders.  Luther didn't even need to employ his kicks, as every punch he threw seemed to connect.  Smith sent Sanders stumbling backwards to the mat, early in the round.  Sanders came back and was continuously picked apart.  Smith hit Sanders with a right that felled Sanders like a big Redwood.  Bill Bookwalter waived off the fight, via KO, at 1:28 of the first round.  Luther Smith is your FNC Heavyweight Muay Thai Champion.


Krystal Cofone v. Jeanette Barkers

Round 1

The 6'1" Cofone utilized her height advantage to do just about whatever she wanted in Round 1.    She stalked her opponent, bloodied her mouth and pushed the action. Barkers did attempt several takedowns and was almost able to secure one at the end of round 1, but it was not enough to win her the round.

Round 2

Cofone apparently had no interest in seeing a third round and pushed forward like a rock-em-sock-em robot, connecting with strike after strike.  Barkers truly had no defense for the aggressive striking and after absorbing a combo, turned her body away, in a manner that showed the referee that she wanted no more, causing the referee to stop the fight and award the TKO win AND RFS Light Heavyweight title belt to Coffone.
