Contract Recipients: Collin Huckbody, Jeffrey Molina, Rafael Alves, and Jamie Pickett all received contracts.
Jamie Pickett def. Jhonoven Pati via TKO (Strikes) at 0:33 of Round 2
Feedback: This was Jamie Pickett’s third time on the Contender Series. He was hoping the third time would be the charm, as he likely wouldn’t be invited back again. They exchanged a bit and then Pickett took Pati down and passed the guard with ease. Pati was able to get to his feet and slammed Pickett but was stuck in a guillotine. He was able to escape and land some ground and pound. Pati threw haymakers and dug some right hands into the body of Pickett. Good round.
Pickett came out in the second round and delivered some huge shots to Pati. Pickett landed a good six to eight consecutive bombs and Pati collapsed to the canvas. The referee waved the fight off, rightfully so. Great finish by Pickett who in all likelihood earned himself a contract.
Rafael Alves def. Alejandro Flores via Sub (Guillotine Choke) at 2:55 of Round 2
Feedback: Alves was clearly the more aggressive striker, while Flores seemed the more technical striker. Alejandro Flores had a sizeable five-inch reach advantage but could not utilize it to get a stead jab landing. Alves likely won the round just based on aggression and forward movement. Interesting fight.
Flores had a much better round in the second. He landed a handful of meaningful jabs and right hands and dove in for a takedown but immediately got stuck in a guillotine by Alves. The choke was deep and he Alves locked it down, forcing Flores to tap to end the fight.
Jeffrey Molina def. Jacob Silva via Unanimous Decision
Feedback: Good first round with a lot of action, both standing and in the clinch. Molina got clipped at the end of the round and got dropped for a moment. Molina got the better of the clinch exchanges and did enough to win the round in my opinion.
Good round again for Molina who landed a head kick that wobbled Jacob Silva who then took a series of hard knees to the body. Silva has shown an incredible chin and ate that head kick easily. It was a hard shot, shin to the face. The kick opened a nasty cut on the cheek of Silva.
Silva is just incredibly tough and came forward and threw big shots in the third. The doctor stopped the fight for a minute to check the cut on Silva’s face but he was cleared to continue. Jacob Silva landed a couple of nice right hands. Molina threw a lead knee that landed on the face. Silva did enough to win the third. Molina did enough to win the fight but likely lost his contract in the third round.
Anthony Romero def. Mike Breeden via Unanimous Decision
Feedback: These guys wasted no time in getting into it. Both fighters seemed content to stand and trade using good footwork and fast hands. Romero landed a nice right hook as well as a left headkick. Romero started hurting Breeden with calf kicks and did more to win the first round.
Breeden was in over his head a bit. He just didn’t have the speed to keep up and Romero played target practice standing. Romero late in the round ate a huge knee but Breeden didn’t have to follow up with anything definitive after staggering Romero. Romero did enough to win the round in all likelihood.
Breeden was struggling with his compromised leg in the third. Mike Breeden is just super game though and battled forward. Romero landed a huge leg kick and struggled to stand up. Breeden simply had no quit in him. He was hurt and getting stung but kept coming forward and throwing body shots. Romero looked sharp but did not seem to have any killer instinct and might not have done enough to earn a contract. He simply got too complacent.
Collin Huckbody def. Kyron Bowen via Sub (Arm-Triangle) at 1:28 of Round 1
Feedback: Collin Huckbody clearly wanted to wrestle and secured the takedown in the early going. Huckbody got to mount and set up an arm-triangle choke. It was in deep and Kyron Bowen had no choice but to tap just a minute and change into the fight. I suspect Huckbody will earn a contract.
