The evening’s main event featured two tough lightweights taking the stage to put their skills to the test as hometown favorite Josh Shockley stepped into the cage to face another crowd favorite from Chicago Mike Cannon. Shockley took Cannon down with a slam nearly getting caught early in Cannon’s guard with guillotine. Shockley remained patient and worked his way out of the submission attempt. Once Shockley passed the guard it was all him landing shots to the ribs of Cannon with right hands. Cannon turned over giving his back to Shockley. Shockley sank in the rear naked choke getting the victory at 3:22 of the first round by rear naked choke.
The co-main event was also a lightweight feature that pitted Ryan Storey against Frank Sloan. Storey proved to be too much for Sloan to handle flooring him twice with strong right hooks and finally on the third time around caught Sloan flush on the temple with a right hook getting the victory by way of knockout at the 2:37 mark of round one.
Welterweights were also up on the card as Danny Morales faced off against Justin Brock. Morales out-struck Brock rocking him with a flurry of punches. Brock showed will and heart by hanging in there throwing everything he had at Morales with haymakers and kicks. Morales came on strong with a powerful right kick to Brock’s rib cage followed by a fast combination of right and left hands dropping Brock and earning the victory by technical knockout at the 2:46 mark of round one.
Another welterweight bout on the card featured Ultimate Fighter veteran Kevin Nowacyk as he faced Darryl Madison. Nowacyk dominated the first round coming close to finishing with several rear naked choke submission attempts. When he couldn’t get it he would soften up Madison with more punches while on Madison’s back. The second round was again all Nowacyk. He started by getting the double legged takedown and once again took the back of Madison. This time he was successful in sinking in the rear naked choke and the win by tapout at 2:41 of round two.
Light heavyweights appeared on the card as well known Hoosier Fight Club veteran Billy Johnson faced Dan Sandman. Johnson took down Sandmann after avoiding an early flurry of Sandmann’s punches. Johnson dominated the ground with elbows cutting open Sandmann. Sandmann looked to finally try to get out of the bad position but would get caught in a triangle choke. Sandmann was choked unconscious giving Johnson the win by technical submission at 4:44 of round one.
Featherweights appeared in the cage as another crowd favorite Terry House won in great fashion defeating Henry Goonen by verbal submission at 2:53 of round one. House wasted no time taking Goonen down only to dominate the top with big punches. The final straw was House landing a big right knee to the ribs of Goonen which forced him to give the verbal submission.
The opening professional fight on the card was former division one All American wrestler Kenny Jordan as he faced Reggie Brown. Jordan showed his rock hard granite chin by eating a few knees and right hands as he was looking to take Brown down. Jordan finally got his wish, picking up Brown and finished with the slam. Jordan had no trouble working the ground and finding the submission as he sank in a nasty D’Arce choke giving Brown no choice but to tapout at 1:54 mark of the first round.
Three amateur bouts kicked off the the card that began with welterweights as Drew Walters faced off against Nate Wacnick. Walters utilized his wrestling skills getting a single leg take down on Wacnick. Walters stood briefly above Wacnick, but was caught flush with an upkick forcing him to go back in Wacnick’s guard. For the rest of the fight, Walters would get a take down in each of the last two rounds, but came very close to getting caught in several of Wacnick’s triangle choke submissions. Wacnick also appeared very busy on the bottom with his attempts at several submissions and landing right hands to the head of walters trying to soften him up to apply his submission attempts. Walters survived the submission attempts and won the fight by split decision.
The second welterweight fight on the amateur card featured Justin Mora taking on Jim Clayurn. Mora was able to dodge Clayburn’s flurry of punches as he came out swinging with bad intentions. Mora got an under hook on Clayburn and scored a big takedown. Mora took his time while in the guard of Clayburn and it was only a short time before Mora would open up landing several unanswered blows getting the win at 2:21 of round one.
The third straight welterweight fight on the amateur card was Mike Manning taking the fight on just eight hours notice facing Chris Malamatos. Malamatos was strong in the early going scoring with takedowns with double legs and getting the better of the stand up. The last two rounds showed Malamatos tire out. Manning landed several uppercuts while having Malamatos pinned up on the cage while standing up. Manning went on to win a unanimous decision.
