XFO Fight Night Club Premier took place in East Dundee, IL, on March 31, 2012. The all-amateur card featured 14 fights – all ending in the first round.
Shawn Wallace vs Bill Mayer
A quick jab-cross missed for Mayer early, initiating the fighters to exchange. Wallace wrapped up a Thai clinch and blasted Mayer with knees. Wallace landed a hard uppercut, dropping Mayer to the canvas. He pounced with punches, and the referee was forced to jump in.
Tim Sullivan vs Kevin Bridgeforth
Sullivan ran across the cage and clinched, soon mounting Bridgeforth. He landed a few shots as Bridgeforth tried to escape. The bout halted due to Sullivan’s repeated fence grabbing, but as the referee went to re-start the action, Bridgeforth decided to not continue.
Giovanni Navarrete vs David Williams
A body kick from Williams graced Navarrete early. Williams landed a few more kicks before Navarrete clinched for a take-down attempt. The fighters worked against the cage as Williams defended the take-down. Williams took Navarrete down, mounting him and opening up with some punches. Navarette turned, giving up his back, and was submitted with a Rear-Naked-Choke.
Mike Geiger vs Nick McDonald
Geiger grabbed McDonald around the waist, hoisted him in the air, and slammed him – smashing his head into the mat. McDonald was out on impact, and the following punches and hovering scream were completely unnecessary on Geiger’s part.
Kevin Hunt vs Sam Hannan
Hannan rushed out of the gate and was taken down immediately by Hunt. Hunt landed in side control, soon passing to mount. He rained down a flurry of punches, but soon chose to lock up a triangle. He lost it, but quickly transitioned to an arm-bar, earning him the tap.
Matt Vance vs Jason Huber
It was a brawl off-the-bat until Huber shot in, slamming Vance to the canvas. Huber mounted Vance, depite being stuck in a prolonged guillotine. Vance held on as long as he could, but soon turned from the punches of Huber, leading to Huber’s Rear-Naked-Choke finish.
Skyler Petrancosta vs Pat Decicco
Decicco came out with an uppercut, prompting Petrancosta to shoot in for a double-leg take-down. Decicco wrapped up a guillotine, landing in mount before the tap.
Sean Gee vs Tim Lagray
Lagray shot hard early, finishing his take-down after a brief struggle. Gee reversed Lagray, causing a scramble across the cage. Gee ended up on top, and Lagray responded with a triangle attempt. Gee avoided, passing to side control. Lagray stood, igniting a brawl and a Gee take-down. Gee mounted Lagray, Lagray turned, and Gee locked up a rear-naked-choke.
Tyler Hibbing vs Charlie Richardson
Hibbing laded a couple of short punches early, and in response Richardson took him down. Hibbing scrambled up, but soon was caught in a guillotine choke and was forced to tap.
Marcus Parkison vs Tom Lagray
“I want you!” screamed Parkison from inside the cage as Lagray walked out. Parkison opened with straight punches, stunning Lagray. Lagray pressed him into the cage and eventually took him down. From guard Lagray swung bombs, exciting the crowd. Lagray went for a Heel hook, costing him his position as Parkison defended, moving to Lagray’s back. Parkison sunk in a rear-naked-choke for the tap.
Talin Bostic vs Vincent Decicco
Bostic went to touch gloves, and Decicco rushed him with punches. Unsportsmanlike – but it did the job, as Bostic turtled up and took a quick TKO beating.
Tim Stout vs Rene Alvarado
Alvarado stormed across the cage, took Stouts back, and choked him out in thirteen seconds.
Daniel Flora vs Eric Platt
It was a brawl early until Flora clinched for a take-down. He moved to mount, and soon took Platt’s back. Platt rolled a couple of times to defend, but Flora re-applied a Rear-Naked-Choke for the submission victory.
Brian Radtke vs Luke Rodriguez
Rodrigues waited for some aggression from Radtke to shoot in. The shot was finished, but only briefly successful as Radtke soon stood and earned a take-down of his own. Rodriguez was able to sneak to Ratke’s back, taking dominant position. Ratke stood, and it appeared that Rodriguez had the choke. Ratke, still standing, shook him off, gaining top position. Ratke locked up a head and arm choke, jumped sides, and squeezed for the finish.
