Ruckus Entertainment put on their second show “Ruckus 2″ last night. Many fans praised the production of the first show, and the second surpassed the first. Local DJ Julian “Jumpin” Perez kept the beats rocking through out the night of action. Four amateur fights were capped off with six professional bouts. Read on for the full results.
Nick Porter and Tyler Bird wanted to set the pace for the night. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of action as most of the fight was spent on the ground. Bird easily got the fight to the ground, but once there, couldn’t find a way to finish the fight as his opponent did a good job of controlling his head and arm. While Porter was able to defend well, that didn’t earn him any points and all three judges scored it 30-27 for Bird.
Before the match started, Kevin Switella looked like Sean Anderson had just done something horrible to his family. When the bell rang, both fighters respected each other’s striking game as they were both hesitant to throw a big shot. Near the end of the first round, Anderson got a takedown but didn’t do much with it. In the second round, Switella responded with a takedown of his own. He was able to get full mount, but Anderson was able to roll out of it and punished Switella’s forehead with shots. It was a close round and could have gone either way. The third round Sitella spent most of the round trying to choke Anderson out. While he couldn’t secure the tap, he was able to win the round. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t enough as the judges awarded the fight to Anderson.
The women were up next with Marcia Allen taking on Kim Novak. Through out the entire three rounds, the women were typically jockeying for position from within the clinch. Both fighters were able to take the other down, and in the end it came down to who did more damage. The judges awarded the victory to Marcia Allen after three rounds of action.
The final amateur fight of the night saw Dan Borke take on Kris Blayney. The first round was extremely close as Blayney scored a takedown, but Borke was able to get out of the troublesome position and secure Blayney’s back. The second round showed the grappling skills of both fighters as they were able to sweep and reverse the position on each other. Blayney wound up the better of the two as he ended the second round in full mount unloading punches. The final round Borke used a trip takedown to land in side control. From there he worked an arm triangle submission, but he couldn’t get the leverage he needed to finish the fight. In the end, the judges saw Blayney as the victor.
The opening professional fight saw Carson Beebe make his pro debut against Nate Williams. Beebe controlled the action for the full fifteen minutes. The rather lackluster affair saw Williams being taken down by Beebe, Beebe working to get a dominant position, Williams giving up his back, and rinse and repeat. While there were some good strikes by both fighters, the fighters were rather predictable by the end of the third round. In the end the judges awarded Beebe the victory.
Danny Black and Vince Ramos were both making their professional debut and only one could come away as the victor. Ramos quickly shot for a takedown and got it. Ramos then worked to get mount and threw punches in bunches. Black bucked and rolled to escape and brought the fight back to his feet. Unfortunately Ramos quickly worked a takedown and while Black attempted a submission, he wasn’t able to get it. From the takedown, Ramos worked a kimura that looked bad, but Black didn’t give up. Black gave up his back attempting to get out of the hold and Ramos locked in the fight ending rear naked choke.
Bobby Reardanz needed less than ninety seconds to submit Randy Fuentes. Both fighters exchanged kicks before Fuentes worked for a takedown. After the takedown, Fuentes postured up, but Reardanz threw his legs up and was able to secure the choke.
Jay Ellis wanted to punish Tyler Combs as was evident in the stare down between the two before the bell started. Ellis came out with a flying kick that missed. Combs kicked Ellis’s leg, but Ellis caught the kick and used it to take the fight down. From there he quickly moved to mount and landed several shots. But Combs was able to sweep Ellis. After a couple of short shots, Combs stood up and Ellis followed leaving his neck open. Combs grabbed a guillotine choke and it looked deep, but Ellis broke free. After escaping, the referee called time out and deducted a point from Ellis for grabbing the glove to break the choke. At the restart, Combs caught a kick of Ellis, but Ellis jumped over Combs to get Combs’s back. Again Comb’s rolled out of it and this time he started landing powerful shots. Ellis curled up and the ref called a halt to the action.
The co-main event saw Dustin Neace take on Toni Marti. Marti opened the fight with a big overhand right followed by a takedown. Neace defended well as Marti worked for a choke. Neace pushed through it and wound up in Marti’s guard, but the choke was still there. Neace forced his head out and grabbed Marti’s neck. Marti reversed the position and again attempted a choke from within Neace’s guard. Neace threw his legs up working for an arm bar, but Marti spins and worked for a leg lock of his own. Neace spun out of the leg lock and was able to get Marti’s back. Once there he sunk in a rear naked choke forcing Marti to tap.
The main event saw former “Ultimate Fighter” cast member, Jeremy May take on Chris Albandia. Albandia landed a nice leg kick and then worked for a single leg takedown. May defended it well and both fighters were clinched. May with a big knee, followed it up with a good 1-2 combo another knee and finished it off with upper cuts. Albandia looked to be in trouble and he shot for a takedown. Albandia got the takedown, but May showcased his jiu jitsu by locking in a triangle choke. Albandia didn’t give up and May worked several punches to Albandia’s head before being able to pull down on Albandia’s head sinking the choke in as tight as possible and earning the tapout victory.
