Mike Davis’s United Combat League put on their annual charity event, Season’s Beatings. The night of action took place at the Local 399 Union Hall in downtown Chicago. The night of action featured ten amateur mixed martial arts fights. All of the proceeds from the night went to Folds of Honor which provides scholarships to families of fallen soldiers. Davis stated that at least a full scholarship was raised.

The main event featured James Waller taking on Jimmy Moreno for the vacant light heavyweight title. The first round was a crazy back and forth boxing battle with both Waller and Moreno landing clean shots on the other. Moreno was looking to counter Waller’s punches and as such landed more in the round giving him the round. The second round Moreno switched things up and took Waller down. The entire round was spent on the canvas as Moreno transitioned from side control to mount to back mount. Waller kept trying to escape and toyed with being mounted or having Moreno take his back. Moreno was looking for a rear naked choke but when he couldn’t get it, he threw punch after punch. The third round Waller’s right eye looked nearly swollen shut and was caught with a right hand by Moreno. Moreno either didn’t realize it landed or was trying to set something else up as he didn’t follow. The two set their feet and started throwing. Moreno landed first and it seemed like Waller was going to go down, but then a perfectly placed right hook by Waller sent Moreno crashing to the canvas in a crazy knockout.

The co-main event featured David Hammonds taking on the crowd favorite Quinn Corbett. Corbett had a massive height advantage over Hammonds, but Hammonds immediately closed the distance and took him down right away. Hammonds postured up and started to throw left hand after left hand and Corbett was in trouble and tapped to the strikes.

After the break heavyweights Jeff Szakas and Eric Bucio took the cage. Szakas swarmed Bucio and pressed him against the cage. He was working for a takedown and got it, keeping all of his weight on top of Bucio. Bucio sat up and worked punches to the head of Szakas and after several went through clean Szakas tapped to the strikes.

Todd Wilson and Andrew Munoz were up before the intermission and they put on a fantastic fight. Munoz came out swinging and then shot for a takedown, but Wilson worked for a guillotine choke. It looked tight, but Munoz continued to move and worked his way out. The two stood up and Wilson dropped Munoz, but Munoz was quick to secure an armbar. Wilson stood up, curled Munoz who was on his arm, and then slammed him to the canvas to break the submission. He landed a couple of punches from on top before he stood up. Munoz then took him down and landed in side control. Wilson tried to escape but Munoz took his back and sunk in a fight ending rear naked choke.

The longest entrance award goes to Juan Tapia as his song was over halfway done playing before he came out against Bryan Titus. He also scored one of the fastest wins of the night as Titus immediately shot for a takedown and Tapia grabbed a guillotine. At first it was standing, but then he pulled guard and was able to tighten the choke and force the tapout at 31 seconds into the fight.

A quick bout between Eric Siciliano and Terry Little. Siciliano came out swinging and Little tried for a double leg takedown. Siciliano sprawled and defended then took Little’s back. He threw multiple punches earning the technical knockout.

Lawrence Sieber dropped Chris McDonough at the start of the fight. He pounced and it looked like the fight was going to be stopped, but the ref let the fight continue. McDonough and Sieber clinched and worked knees. McDonough took Sieber down and then worked punches. He took the mount and threw punch after punch. Sieber didn’t defend and the ref stopped the fight.

Andrew West came out swinging against Trevor Relyea and didn’t let up until the fight was over. West quickly charged Relyea and landed punch after punch. He threw a knee that looked clean, but Relyea said it was low and a time out was called. After the restart West continued to throw punch after punch. Relyea tried to take the fight to the ground, but West reversed. The two stood up and West again charged Relyea working punches against the cage. Relyea ducked down for a single leg, but West got his arm around the throat of Relyea and squeezed. Relyea gave a thumbs up, then his knees buckled and the ref stopped the fight.

Bit of a controversy between Augie Rodriguez and Robert Little. The first round Rodriguez took Little down and worked small punches from side control. He got too top heavy and Little was able to roll him over and worked on top. Little tried for a keylock to finish Rodriguez off, but it wasn’t there. Little was too high and Rodriguez was able to sweep him. Little gave up his back and Rodriguez finished the round with punches. The second round Little came out with a front kick and Rodriguez caught it and took him down. They got back up, but again the fight went to the ground. Rodriguez was working for a kimura or a straight arm armbar and Little started yelling while trying to muscle his way out. He did it a couple of times and the ref took it as a verbal submission and called the fight.

Kicking off the night of action was Jason Crose taking on Gilbert Grappling’s Justin Hughes. The two were quick close the distance and started throwing right hands at each other. Hughes ducked under and picked Crose up, slamming him to the canvas. He moved from side control to mount and threw a couple of punches.

After the two separated it was all Gee as he stalked Dey and landed punches at will. The second round Gee again landed a big punch, but when he followed Dey to the ground, the two had a crazy back and forth going after heel hooks and knee bars. Dey was more effective as Gee was playing more defense, but still able to survive. Both fighters with their opponents ankle in danger threw punches that connected. The third round Gee came out even more pissed off and he connected on a big right hand.

Xtreme Fighting Organization returned to Rockford for Rocktown Showdown 15 on Saturday, October 20th at Giovannis. The night of action featured sixteen amateur fights with both the heavyweight and lightweight titles up for grabs.

The main event featured Midwest Training Center’s Jayson Adams taking on John Parrish. Parrish went for a takedown but Adams was holding the fence and stayed upright. Adams then went for a takedown of his own and once he got Parrish on the ground he unloaded a series of punches that immediately bruised up Parrish. The punches didn’t stop and the ref was forced to stop the fight.

Heavyweights Tyler Reece and Wes Anderson were in the co-main event for the XFO heavyweight title. The two tried to gauge their range early, but Reece grabbed a standing guillotine choke after they clinched. It wasn’t there and he defended a takedown attempt from Anderson. After sprawling to avoid being taken down, Reece was able to get Anderson’s back. He locked in a rear naked choke and choked Anderson out just before the two minute mark of the first round.

Charles Radtke fought Wyatt Hickey in his last amateur bout. He came out swinging and caught Hickey with a good combo. Hickey retaliated and landed a right hand that stumbled Radtke. Radtke like Hickey recovered quickly and a nice jab hurt Hickey. Radtke landed another combo that sent Hickey to the canvas. Radtke swarmed and didn’t let up his attack until the ref stopped the fight.

Josh Labree and Nelson Laborn had a very lackluster first round. The round was spent with Laborn pressing Labree up against the cage working for a takedown. Labree threatened with a guillotine choke and worked knees and punches to the body. The second round however was much more exciting. The two went back and forth slugging it out. Laborn worked a guillotine choke of his own but Labree was in half guard. Laborn couldn’t finish the choke and Labree was able to get free. He passed to mount with about twelve seconds left and started raining down punches. The ref warned and stopped the fight with a second left. Many weren’t sure if he stopped it due to the strikes or the round ending, but the stoppage stood even with the protests.

Caitlynn Kelly and Leina Lueff battled for all three rounds in a Pancration rules bout. Pancration rules state no strikes to the head are allowed. The first round the two ladies clinched and exchanged knees to the body. Leuff worked for a standing guillotine choke and Kelly tried to slam her way out of it. Leuff gave up the choke and let Kelly work from within her guard. Lueff was sneaky while working for an armbar and was able to get one but time ran out in the round. The second round was mostly Kelly working leg kicks but Lueff countered with punches and kicks of her own. The third was a lot like the second but the two also threw knees. Halfway through Leuff landed a punch to the face of Kelly and was deducted a point. MMARecap scored it for Lueff 29-27 but the judges’ were actually split. All three scored it 29-27, but one scored it for Kelly which is hard to figure out how.

Ryan Kline and Cole Bishop put on one of the most crowd exciting fights. The two started the fight throwing heavy hands with both connecting. Bishop worked for a takedown throughout the first round and when he did get it, Kline tried to sneak out and take his back. Bishop in the guard of Kline and decided to let Kline stand up. Kline connected and Bishop went to the canvas. As time was running out, Kline dove in with a big punch. The second round Bishop immediately shot for the takedown but Kline sprawled. He stood up but kept control of Bishop’s neck and locked in a standing guillotine choke and earning the tapout victory.

Midwest Training Centers Danny Martinez had a massive crowd following for his fight against Rico Triplett. Triplett came out with a quick punch but Martinez wanted a takedown. After securing a double leg, he picked Triplett up and slammed him to the ground. After landing in side control, Triplett fought to escape and Martinez got his back. He secured both hooks and worked for a rear naked choke. Triplett executed a good two on one defense, but Martinez was able to get his arm under the chin and force a tapout.

Heavyweights went to battle as Wesley Wilson took on Anthony Schott. Wilson came out and immediately took Schott to the ground. He landed in side control but Schott was controlling his wrists. Once free, he postured up and started to throw punch after punch. The ref warned Schott to fight back, but he didn’t defend and the ref stopped it.

Rene Alvarado was much shorter than Matt Willard in his welterweight bout but that didn’t matter as he rushed Willard at the start. He started to land his punches instead of clinching before scoring a takedown. Once there Willard gave up his back and Alvarado was able to lock in a rear naked choke. Willard tried to fight his way out but Alvarado held the choke and Willard was forced to stop the fight.

Dan Newhausen caught Donny Simpson with a big punch and Simpson went for a takedown. Newhausen looked to be working for a choke and seemed like he had a variation of a D’Rce choke but let it go due to the takedown pressure Simpson was putting on. Simpson got the fight to the ground and then he was the one looking for a submission. He pushed Newhausen up against the cage and when Newhausen was sitting up getting ready to wall walk, he grabbed a guillotine choke and pulled guard. An adjustment to make the choke tighter and Newhausen was forced to tap.

Kyle Collatti came out swinging and didn’t let up against Jordan Maglish. Maglish worked for a takedown, but it wasn’t there. Collatti kept his pressure and was landing almost at will. He had Maglish rocked and then went for a takedown. He passed to mount and rained down multiple punches. As the round ended, Maglish gave up his back and Collatti was like a machine gun firing punch after punch. The doctor came in to check on Maglish as he was cut by his eye. He was cleared to fight, but then opted to not come out for the second round and thus Collatti was ruled the winner.

Armondo Calderon and Sergio Rios put on an amazing fight that did not seem like their combined total fights was just one prior to this fight. The first round the two fighters started swinging wildly and working for takedowns. Neither was successful with their takedown attempts and both went back to throwing punches. Calderon was able to land a punch that hurt Rios and quickly pounced to get a rear naked choke. He couldn’t secure it and finished the round with punches. Rounds two and three Calderon took the fight to the ground and was able to pass to side control. Both rounds he worked for a variation of a kimura, keylock, or straight armbar but Rios was able to tough it out and Calderon let go. In the end it was an amazing fight and both fighters looked like veterans of the sport. While Rios put up a good fight, Calderon easily won all three rounds and the fight.

Shawn Bridgeman quickly took Jason Mussay down against the cage. Mussay was able to stand back up and worked for a takedown of his own. Bridgeman reversed the takedown attempt. Mussay looked to try to sneak around and get Bridgeman’s back, but Bridgeman used the opportunity to pass to mount. Mussay pushed off the cage and reversed to land in Bridgeman’s guard. He stood up and looked to let Bridgeman up, but dove in with a punch. He quickly passed to mount and then Bridgeman gave up his back. Mussay got his arm under Bridgeman’s chin and forced him to tap due to the choke.

Team Curran’s first fighter of the night was Brian Radtke taking on Austin Dietrich. Dietrich tried to keep his distance attacking Radtke with leg and body kicks. Radtke then secured a takedown and landed in side control. The two worked for positioning with Radtke taking Dietrich’s back. He was able to get his hooks in and his arm under the chin of Dietrich. He flipped him over and secured the choke and the tap ending the fight.

MTC’s Amador Estrada took on Team No Joke’s Javier Garcia. The two touched gloves and Garcia quickly tied up and tried for a takedown from the clinch. Estrada reversed but it looked like Garcia was able to get the takedown. Unfortunately Estrada reversed and quickly took the mount. He threw a couple of punches and then attacked the arm that Garcia was leaving for him. Garcia tried to stack his way out of the submission, but Estrada held on. Garcia then stood to slam his way out and when he hit the ground he continued to roll to escape. Estrada held on every step and was able to tighten the arm and fully extend it forcing Garcia to tap.

The first fight of the night Jason Huber took on Brett Hedrington. Huber landed a big leg kick and Hedrington immediately went for the takedown. Huber stuffed the first attempt and punished the body of Hedrington. Hedrington was able to get a single leg and again Huber stuffed it.
