Contract Recipients: Josh Parisian, Orion Coscoe, Cheyanne Buys, and Louis Coscoe.
Louis Coscoe def. Victor Reyna via TKO (Strikes) at 1:12 of Round 1
Feedback: These guys were throwing with bad intentions right from the start. Coscoe landed a nice headkick and a couple of shots in close. Louis Coscoe clipped Victory Reyna with a left hand and dropped him. Louis Coscoe follows him to the canvas and closed the show via TKO in the first round.
Cheyanne Buys def. Hilary Rose via Unanimous Decision (30-27 X 3)
Feedback: Both fighters came out firing. Cheyanne Buys was temporarily stuck in an armbar but escaped easily. Takedown attempt by Rose and Buys defended it well and wound up in top position. Buys executed a clinch and landed a series of punches. Buys took the fight to the canvas and controlled the action. Big round for Buys who clearly won the round.
The first half of the round was spent primarily in the clinch, against the fence. Cheyanne Buys controlled the pace and landed the more damaging strikes. Cheyanne Buys just seemed the faster, more precise striker and beat Rose to the punch time and again. Rose was bloodied as the round ended. Two rounds to none for Buys.
The third round was more of the same but Buys just picked Rose apart standing. Buys put on a striking clinic and won this round with relative ease. It was all Cheyanne Buys and she wins it 30X27 on all three cards. I’d be surprised if she didn’t earn a contract for that dominant performance.
Orion Coscoe def. Matt Dixon via TKO (Strikes) at 4:42 of Round 3
Feedback: Matt Dixon wanted to wrestle and scored an early takedown. Coscoe got right back to his feet, however. Matt Dixon scored another takedown but again, was unable to hold Orion Coscoe down. Dixon landed in a guillotine choke at the end of the round but was never in real jeopardy. Dixon won the first round. They both need to step it up if they want to be signed.
Dixon got the better of the standup through the first half of round two. There were no takedowns and midway through the round, Dixon took a low blow. After the restart, Coscoe landed a nice body kick and knee, but Dixon pushed him against the fence into the clinch. Coscoe was more active in the clinch and landed some short shots and knees. Dixon was hurt by a couple of punches and Coscoe started to push the pace. The second round goes to Coscoe, and it was even going into the third.
Matt Dixon seemed to be low on gas entering the final frame. Whoever won this round, likely would win the fight. Coscoe with the clinch and dumped Dixon on his head. Dixon was getting pounded on the canvas and Coscoe seemed to gain steam. Matt Dixon ate some big shots and got caught in the crucifix and the referee stopped it as Dox. Big win for Coscoe. He could have earned a contract with that stoppage.
Josh Parisian def. Chad Johnson via TKO (Strikes) at 3:43 of Round 1
Feedback: Both men came out throwing heavy shots. You got the sense that whoever landed clean first won. Johnson landed a knee and some big punches, backing Parisian up. Josh Parisian landed one clean punch and dropped Johnson, and followed him to the canvas. After getting to mount, he unloaded and the referee jumped in to stop the fight. Josh Parisian wins via stoppage and should earn a contract with that performance.
Kenny Cross def. Kevin Syler via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)
Feedback: Cross was pretty aggressive early, loading up on shots. Kyler was able to get Cross’ back temporarily but was swept. Cross won the first round, but neither fighter seemed to do enough to sway Dana White.
The fighters exchanged low kicks to start the second round, with Kenny Cross getting the better of it. Cross was caught in a Guillotine but escaped and gained top control. Kenny Cross was able to take Syler’s back and pounded away from the top. Cross went to full mount. Kenny Cross goes for submission and was swept. Lots of action and scrambles, but nothing definitive as Cross won another round. If the third is a repeat of the first two rounds, I doubt anyone gets a contract here.
Kevin Syler worked extensively for a kimura but could not execute it. Cross was able to get the top position and seemed content to run out the clock. With a minute left, Syler took Cross’ back but was too high and slipped off. The find ends, and Cross wins, but likely isn’t ready for a contract.
