Aspire MMA (A) is currently a +275k ID organization operating out of Los Angeles, formerly known as Just Bleed MMA. We aim to run the kind of organization that we would want to be part of, our fights are offered based on WC/P4P with common sense applied to skill differentials and hype/pop.

Aspire MMA


 

Engage with us:
Both our fight offers and contract offers are considered true negotiations as we seek to engage with the managers to ensure everyone is on the same page at all times, not happy with the numbers on the deal? feel free to reject it and let me know exactly what it is you need and we will work with you to make it happen, not happy with a proposed fight? let's talk out the issues and potential alternative opponents, we want to work with you to make the best possible experience for everyone involved.


Sponsorships:
As part of the Aspire group the organisation's fighters benefit from generous sponsorship's via our in-house Aspire Clothing and Aspire Nutrition, giving our fighters a little extra in the pocket, we do ask that our fighters call out the sponsor during victory text whenever possible.


ID situation:
In the future, we will be opening up our org to lower and lower IDs slowly but surely, we will always do so with the best interests of the divisions as they stand and use common sense when bringing in fighters who might be a good fit for our org, the goal is to ultimately take Aspire all the way to the top and I hope you come along with us for the ride!


Pay scale:
Regarding pay scale, I like to be as upfront and open as possible and to give you a brief overview of the kind of numbers we aim to deal with currently as a default offer for a given P4P the following are the figures you can expect from us as a base-line but on a case by case this can vary based on hype, pop, tenure with the company, proven main-event draws and frankly more exciting fighters in particular can and will be paid more, conversely people coming off several losses and or low rated fights may see a drop in pay upon renegotiation, we want to be fair and upfront about that going in. In addition we will never hold a fighter hostage to a contract, if you sign with us and a super fight come's up some place we are willing to trust you to go do it and return, if you for some reason cannot fulfill a contract with us we will work with you to arrange a release based on a return of a percentage of the signing bonus vs fights remaining basis.
 
1-50 P4P - 5 Fights - 80k/50k/50k
51-100 P4P - 5 Fights - 70k/40k/40k
101-300 P4P - 5 Fights - 50k/30k/30k
301-500 P4P - 5 Fights - 35k/20k/20k

FAQ:
Q: Can my fighter join Aspire MMA? 
A: If you are within the 275k-299k ID range theirs a very strong chance you eligible to join Aspire MMA, we tend to look for people in the top 1,500 P4P but if you have a promising fighter let us know about it and we will let you know on a case-by-case basis.

Q: My fighter was released from his contract with Aspire MMA, why did this happen?
A: The most common reason we release fighters early is when we feel they are no longer competitive within the division or have exhausted all possible competitive bouts within their current hype-range, we have no desire to book unfair bouts and would rather give people the chance to develop in one of the smaller organisations with a view to having them return at a later date should they turn things around in the interim period.

Q: I'm looking to get involved with Aspire MMA, how can I help?
A: We are always interested in having people contribute to our ongoing story, articles about our fighters and or events are most welcome right here in the smacktalk thread with financial rewards given to consistent quality contributors at the end of each month.

Q: Might fight ended in a split-decision and you sent me the same fight offer again?
A: Split decisions provide winners but fail to provide a satisfactory outcome for anyone involved, as such I will make every attempt to match the fighters back up potentially for five rounds at the earliest opportunity.

 
Thanks for reading:
I encourage you to use this thread to talk about the organisation, any desires you may have, title shot call outs and general smack talk are all welcome, write up's of our events should start to be posted here after within 24 hours of an event taking place in-game.

Thoughts from the CEO:
Just Bleed 27 is the second event to under the newly re-branded Aspire MMA, our main focus with this event was to provide the organisation a solid hype boost as we start our drive towards been viable for PPV, we have hopes that will be ready to go sometime between Just Bleed 40 and Just Bleed 45, with that in mind we did take minor loss on this event of around $30,000 and expect to take similar loss's in the lead up to the first PPV but overall we are very happy with the state of the roster and the team of managers we have working for us and we are dedicated to making this thing a complete success, thank you for sticking with us and if you are on the fence we hope you decide to come join us. With that said let's get into it!

265lbs : Huell Babineaux (Champion) vs James Daniel Kennamer

In our main event of the evening we have the champion Huell Babineaux a versatile striker known for his explosive finishes coming out of the illustrious David Brent's Legion of Doom camp, dominating the 265lbs division destroying former champions he is considered the most dangerous fighter in the promotion, with 5(T)KO win's to his name and an impressive wrestling base James Daniel Kennamer is not to be overlooked having come off a four fight win streak and determined to stake his claim to the 265lbs title.

During the first round both fighters showed world class agility and strike defense to avoid any major damage been sustained but Huell looked to work his opponent over keeping him ever busy until Kennamer finally countered a body kick into a double leg takedown, trying to pressure the champion with his ground strikes Huell stayed cool under pressure and worked for the reversal into Kennamer's guard but was content to stall the position for a referee standup knowing it would press his advantage, Huell would take the round scoring numerous body shots putting Kennamer on notice.

In the opening moments of round two Kennamer was cut with a looping right hand and Huell ceased upon the opportunity of drawing blood sensing the end was near for Kennamer he pressed the attack with a brutal head kick knocking Kennamer out on the spot, rushing to jump the cage immediately to celebrate with his fan's and team Huell is once again victorious!

Following the fight, Huell took a moment to address the earlier call out from Keith Bishop saying that he was ready and willing for whoever wanted to come claim his title.

Winner - Huell Babineaux by way of KO (Head Kick) : Fight Rating 24%

265lbs : Keith Bishop vs Brutus Beefcake

Island journeyman Brutus Beefcake has a history of exciting submission win's and is known for his ability to knock a man out with his lethal strikes but his chin has been brought into question over his career with a total of 5 losses via (T)KO, blue belt Keith Bishop is all about the standup game with 7 of his win's coming from devastating (T)KO's and just a single decision loss to his name originally fighting out of the camp of world renowned manager David Brent before been picked up by Six Musketeers mainstay Stu MacK, Keith Bishop was always going to have the pedigree to be a success but did he have the heart to survive a ground war? Beefcake wanted to put that to the test.

Bishop controlled the early round with his towering height and lightning reflexes countering every movement Beefcake made until a beautiful takedown by Beefcake pushed a sprawling Bishop into half guard and set about his game plan, using solid GNP to improve his position he stayed ever dangerous looking for a fatal kimura, to Bishop's credit he was not having it and defended extremely well against the onslaught despite picking up a nasty cut, eventually Bishop was able to reverse into top guard but that did not stop Beefcake trying for a finish, despite a significant amount of pressure placed on him in the first round on the ground Bishop ultimately managed to win the judges score card for his earlier standup antics and survival on the ground.

What followed in the second round was in fair parity with the first with Bishop winning the standup portion and Beefcake eventually scoring a takedown followed by Bishops showing of amazing heart to continue to survive knowing he had done enough early in the round to score points with the judges.

As we opened into round three Bishop came out looking to finish weaving in and out and eventually countering with a crisp jab that knocked down and rocked Beefcake, perhaps not wanting to follow into Beefcakes world he allowed his opponent to stand, he was thanked for this by getting immediately taken down and greeted with a barrage of submission attempts by the now desperate to finish Beefcake, ultimately the referee would stand the two warriors up and Bishop continued to dominate the standup knocking his opponent down a further two times finally resulting in a right hook to the temple that crumbled Beefcake but did not immediately finish him, smiling at his opponent the tenacious Beefcake tried to stand once again the roar of the crowd giving it up for this fantastic specimen but was answered directly with the finality of a thundering hook putting him to sleep.

After the fight Keith Bishop proceeded to call out the winner of the up coming main event stateing that his perfomance tonight proves he is the rightful number one contender and anyone who wants to get in his path will meet a deserved end just like Beefcake had tonight, the audiance gave him a standing ovation and he showed real charisma in the spotlight.

Winner - Keith Bishop by way of KO (Punches) : Fight Rating 64%

185lbs : Casper Timmermans (Champion) vs Kimbo Spice

Known to fan's of Aspire MMA as the literal centerpiece of the promotion the 185lbs champion Casper Timmermans has left a path of destruction since joining the promotion right at its origins but submission specialist Kimbo Spice was not going to let that stand in his way after confident win's over William Wallace and former champion Aksel Stenger.

Knowing that his best bet was to take this to the ground quickly and apply his years of BJJ mastery to good effect Kimbo shot in for a double-leg takedown that was well defended by Casper and received a peppering of inside leg kicks for his trouble, Casper then set about testing Kimbo's resolve with a shot designed to test both the range and reactions of Kimbo, the champion must of liked what he saw as he decided to pounce with a vicious hook dropping Kimbo 40 seconds into the first round and following him to the ground with a barrage of strikes leading to the referee stepping in at 44 seconds of the very first round.

Following the fight, Casper thanked the fan's of Aspire MMA and when asked when we might see him fight again he had this to say, " I feel great, I could go again right now LA! ... Ill be at Just Bleed 31 watching the Cyril Westlake vs Harry Winston fight with great interest " fan's cheered and he left the cage on the shoulders of his coaches.

Winner - Casper Timmermans by way of TKO (Punches) : Fight Rating 64%

265lbs : James Quinn Mcdonagh vs Sendou Kitano

Former 265lbs King Pin Sendou Kitano looking to put behind him recent losses to current champion Huell Babineaux took on former StrikeForce Union champion James Quinn Mcdonagh also coming off a recent loss to both Huell and dominate 265er Israel Hand with both men looking to climb the ladder once again, inside the promotion there was a lot of excitement about this fight and despite the overall fight rating it did not disappoint! providing what may go down in history as the fastest TKO we have ever had!

As the bell rung Quinn was not messing about and came directly out to face Sendou in the middle following immediately by a big left hand that shocked not only his opponent but the entire arena as the stunned crowd gasped in awe of what they had just seen Quinn followed up with a flurry of strikes as Sendou almost in slow motion fell to the floor, the referee jumped in to stop the bout despite objection from Sendou's corner who seemed to feel he would recover if given the chance, that's MMA folks. Sometimes crazy stuff happens!

Winner - James Quinn Mcdonagh by way of TKO (Punches) : Fight Rating 0%

265lbs : Robert Diggs vs Bubba Dee

Hot off the heels of last week's Just Bleed 27 an immediate rematch of the split decision victory of Bubba Dee over Robert Diggs the two warriors entered back into the cage looking put doubters to rest, early on Bubba took a cut  that would persist as a problem throughout the fight as his corner tried to work on it but Robert Diggs was determined to show his class dominating the first round with his impeccable wrestling ability scoring 2 takedowns and pounding Bubba with lethal GNP from a postured position, showing good heart Bubba held out but was rewarded in the second round by having his cut opened up even further by a startling upper cut from Diggs.

Deep into the second round Bubba dug down and scored heavily on the judges score cards with some critical strikes and a fantastic display of agility and striking defence in the face of Roberts unrelenting standup, Bubba would take the second round. Continuously hampered by the cut suffered early in the fight Bubba would struggle in the third round once Diggs took the fight into the clinch resulting in a 10,9 round.

Winner - Robert Diggs by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 55%

170lbs : Jack Stone vs Bomb Com

Coming off the controversial draw with Dum Debble for the 170lbs title and the following unanimous decision re-match loss in February Jack Stone looked to get a decisive win over TKO artist Bomb Com in what could of put Bomb on a path towards his own title run, what resulted was a three round war ending in yet more controversy as official Frank Antenori scored the rounds 9/10, 9/10, 10/9 for Bomb with the other two officials scoring the bout 10/9 for all rounds for Jack Stone, speaking to fans in the arena the feeling was that Bomb Com was winning the third round by a significant margin until he was rocked by a well placed single shot called as a result of Chris Karter shouting from the side of the cage instruction's to his fighter. Com however recovered fantastically and continued to do strongly in the round despite Stone's resurgence.

My personal feeling is that Com did very well in round 1 and I think both the first couple rounds were easy to call for either man but Stone's most likely took the second and the big knockdown in the third round while a big moment for the fight did not sway the round to Stone for me, honestly I would of re-matched them immediately but Jack Stone has since decided to seek his fortune outside of the promotion. Jack's new nickname should be "Mr Controversy" if you ask me!

Winner - Jack Stone by way of Split Decision : Fight Rating 70%

185lbs : Kiovani Aro vs Aksel Stenger

No stranger to a challenge former 185lbs champion Aksel Stenger was more than happy to fight Kiovani Aro the former child prodigy of well-known manager Chris Karter a member of the famous Convicted Inc camp now under the tutelage of relatively new B Deck of the Forever Free camp. Kiovani himself eager to make a statement that his back to back loss's in recent times were just a blip on the radar against his seemingly unlimited potential.

The tale of the tape for this bout show's Aksel's amazingly dangerous knees vs Kiovani's granite chin and that really was the story of this fight as Aksel looked to score with them as he worked his vicious clinch game, had more of his shots hit things may have been a different story but his accuracy suffered and Kiovani's chin was repeatedly tested to no avail as Kiovani carefully worked his shots ensuring plenty of notice from the judges on his score card

Winner - Kiovani Aro by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 57%

265lbs: Israel Hand vs Paddy Ward

One time contender to the StrikeForce Union 265+ title Paddy Ward has had no easy road so far coming off back to back submission loss's to Brutus Beefcake, this was a must win situation for him against what is undoubtedly one of the most scary men to step foot in Aspire MMA's cage Israel "The Hand of God" and what resulted was a systematic dismantling of Paddy Ward in short order following an early cut to Paddy and a miss-guided yet successful clinch by Paddy that was all she wrote folks as Israel went to town following strike with strike until Paddy Ward finally crumpled to the ground following a massive uppercut from "The Hand of God", what a showing by Israel Hand.

Winner - Israel Hand by way of KO (Punch) : Fight Rating 90%

145lbs: Michail Podolski vs Hoss Moody

Coming off a decision win against Albert DeSalvo at Just Bleed Black Friday Hoss Moody was looking to cement his place at 145lbs but KO artist Michali Podoslki had other ideas, Hoss been the more aggressive in the early goings took the fight into the clinch despite his significant reach advantage and Podoski's sensational Muay Thai skills, despite this Hoss seemed to be doing well from this position forcing his opponent to repeatedly escape the clinch and getting in some good shots as the round progressed, however outside of the clinch it was always Podoski who kept busy on the score sheet and coming out of the first round Podoski was clearly winning.

During the early goings of the second round Moody yet against instigated the clinch and Podoski worked to escape following up with a torrent of strikes that put the referee on notice, followed up with a stiff jab that rocked Moody and finished him off with a vicious right hand that floored Moody, despite attempts from Moody to intelligently defend himself the referee had seen enough and called it quits for the night.

Winner - Michail Podolski by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 69%

145lbs Joa Ricardo Bordignon Miyao vs Santana Blaze 

In what was a rematch following a brutal RNC loss to Joao back in December of 2016, Santana Blaze came into this fight wanting avenge the loss but Joa was having none of it and immediately ducked a colossal looking uppercut from Blaze directly into a takedown, scrappy Blaze found his way to his feet again but it was all for nothing as Joa's impressive wrestling lead to yet another takedown followed by repeated submission attempts wearing down Blaze despite a valiant attempt to stem the flow it was all over.

Winner - Joao Ricardo by way of Submission (Armbar) : Fight Rating - 71%.



The Aftermath: 

FON - Keith Bishop vs Brutus Beefcake
KON - Keith Bishop
SON - Joao Ricardo Bordignon Miyao


Following Just Bleed 27 Jack Stone & Israel Hand decided to pursue offers outside the company as they continue their MMA journey and we at Aspire MMA wish them all the best going forward, both excellent fighters with massive upsides and amazing management behind them, good luck boys.

At 145lbs former undefeated StrikeForce Union 145lbs champion Michael Kristian has joined the roster and will be granted an immediate title shot at the winner of the up coming Just Bleed 29 main event on the 18th of March between Riff McGee and Derui Pake in what promises to be a blockbuster event no matter who his opponent ends up being.

Also 145lbs Michail Podolsl was offered a high-profile bout following his dominant win via TKO, he will come against incoming veteran Misha Collins in what will likely put one of these men on a path for a title run and looks to be an exciting matchup for Just Bleed 32's main event.

185lbs looks set to explode with lot's of top level talent recently joining the promotion with former StrikeForce Union 185lbs champion Harry Winston stepping into the cage with former Highland Games contender Cyril Westlake at Just Bleed 31 on the 1st of April seeking to carve out a title shot against incumbent perennial center piece of the promotion the dominate 6-0-0 Casper Timmermans.

And finally at 265lbs Keith Bishop has positioned himself as the rightful air to the throne and will take the next shot at the great Heull Babineaux (13-0-0) Aspire MMA's biggest star attraction at an event to be determined in the near future.

Our next event will be Just Bleed 28 on the 11th of March headlined by Billy Bolek vs Vinicius Costa at 155lbs with both former title contenders coming off loss's to the amazing 155lbs champion Bonerz McGee it will be interesting to see who has the fire to put together another run, co-main eventer by Darth Sidious vs Thomas Peterson at 205lbs both looking to get back on track and prove to the division they are here to make waves.

Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to read this, regardless of if you are in my organisation or not I just want people to know I love the game and I love working with all you guy's to live out the fantasy of been a MMA booker, I won't always get things right but I will always listen to you to make things better when I get it wrong, that's my promise to all of you.

Aspire MMA - Just Bleed 28 - Live from the Venice Beach Arena (6500) : Attendance - 6500 : Event Rating - 216.61
Betting: Aspire Casino
 
1488022860JB28.jpg
 
Thoughts from the CEO:
Over the last few week's we have signed some amazing talent including both the former 135lbs StrikeForce Union champion Carlos Ortega to our 145lbs division and Michael Kristian the reigning StrikeForce Union 145lbs champion, 145lbs was already one of our most stacked divisions and adding quality fighters of this level to the division can only make it stronger. Since our last event, I have granted our 265lbs champion Huell Babineaux leave to pursue a super fight outside the organisation but rest assured arrangements are in place for him to return and fight Keith Bishop following the fallout from last week's event Just Bleed 27.
 
Tonight's event is focused on giving quality fighters that had taken recent losses a chance to get back on track, if I had to give this card a name it would be Aspire MMA: Redemption, in the future once we are regularly running PPV's we may run similar none-PPV events under the Redemption brand to fulfill this role.
 
 
155lbs : Billy Bolek v Vinicius Costa
14844302577091.jpg vs 14752924252237.jpg
  Age: 24                                   Age: 30
  Height: 176 cm                        Height: 182 cm
  Weight: 170 lbs                        Weight: 155 lbs
  Record: 8-4-0 (LWWWW)        Record: 13-5-0 (LWWWW)
 
In our main event of the evening former champion Billy Bolek comes off a devastating TKO loss to current champion Bonerz McGee at Just Bleed 23 seeking his redemption against former StrikeForce Union champion Vinicius Costa who interestingly is also coming off a TKO loss to Bonerz McGee at Just Bleed 25, previously having put together a 6 fight win streak Costa see's Bolek as the first step on his road back to the title.
 
Bone n bone action as Bolek check's a low kick and counters with a shot of his own to start this one off, Vinicius Costa came into this fight looking to impress his will upon Billy Bolek and as such is the more aggressive fighter in the stand-up so far. Briefly clinching Bolek up against the cage before Bolek masterfully circled away before eating several well-timed leg shots by Costa. Getting cut coming off a jab Costa really has to be careful now that yet another fight on this card is not brought into question by the ramifications of a simple cut! doing his best to avoid incoming damage Costa put his superior agility and speed to the test been ever elusive as Bolek patiently timed his shots, each time getting closer and closer to to the zone but sadly doing little damage for the trouble, still it looks nice on the score sheet.
 
Around the mid-point of the first round Costa shot in for a takedown and managed to catch Bolek napping driving through into side control, however unfortunately Bolek snapped back to his fight on account of his time spent on the mat practicing his escapes for such an occasion, determined to make every second count Costa resumed his torrent of kicks while Bolek aimed to wear his opponent down with well-placed strikes to the body and was over searching for the perfect crisp counter strike waiting for Costa to make a mistake.
 
It's fair to say Costa just about edged out the first round but that would be the only one as he would really struggle in the following rounds to successful land his shots while Bolek patiently waited to counter with precision leading to Costa been rocked by a one-two counter 3 just shy of 5 minutes in, Costa almost instinctually pulled his opponent in close and used all his strength to stall in the position as he recovered before finally pulling guard and looking for a triangle, Billy Bolek would get the nod for the second round overall.
 
The third and finally round was a surprisingly back and forth straight standup war that saw both men dish out excruciating amounts of pain to the other but ultimately Billy Bolek managed to look slightly more active overall and take the third, maybe it was Costa's choice not to use punch's of any kind in the regular standup that swayed the judges score cards.
 
Winner - Billy Bolek by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 76%
 
 
 
205lbs : Darth Sidious v Thomas Peterson
14333592731738.jpg vs 39w20.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 180 cm                        Height: 190 cm
  Weight: 204 lbs                        Weight: 215 lbs
  Record: 14-6-0 (LWLWW)        Record: 6-2-0 (LWWLW)
 
In our co-main event we have the tenacious Darth Sidious fresh of a loss Alejandro Scott this exciting striker will be looking to put the breaks to any hopes LOD alliance team-mate Thomas Peterson has of taking his spotlight, Peterson with 6 (T)KO win's to his name coming off his first KO loss to dangerous striker Apollo Creed will be looking to silence critics with a return to form, this may not be a galaxy far far away but someone's going to feel the force in this one!
 
Fight:
Sidious looked dangerous from the outset scoring time and again as Peterson sought to control the fight in the clinch Sidious continued to work over the lower body, feeling that it was perhaps not worth the energy to fight the clinch Sidious worked with it hitting a critical shot to the kidneys  just before the second minute and delivering a razor sharp elbow to the forehead not long after leading Peterson to bleed so much he looked like he required attention, soldering on both warriors grinding out the hopes of a victory with nothing but sheer determination the crowd went wild as both men gave it everything they had in the cage in an all out slugfest, it's fair to say Sidious edged out the first round but Peterson was never far behind despite absorbing the brunt of the damage.
 
As we moved into the second round it became apparent Peterson's forehead was continuing to bother him and Sidious has noticed the bleed dripping into the eyes of his opponent, like a Shark smelling a taste of victory Sidious worked over Peterson with dirty boxing while sliding the occasional elbow up above the eye and forehead area whenever possible, the combination of damage sustained, and the apparent difficult Peterson was facing when trying to see his opponent had almost lead the referee to call the bout as Sidious managed to rock Peterson momentarily before been stunned by Peterson's chin as he refused to stay down! Sidious was going to have to dig deep and that he did, eventually scoring a big hook crumbling Peterson to the floor at a little under 4 minutes into the second round for the KO.
 
Winner - Darth Sidious by way of KO (Punch) : Fight Rating 86%
 
 
 
205lbs : Thoreaux AssKicken v Apollo Creed

14710281147333.png vs 14469827474998.png

  Age: 24                                   Age: 23
  Height: 190 cm                        Height: 191 cm
  Weight: 215 lbs                        Weight: 215 lbs
  Record: 7-1-1 (LWWWW)        Record: 7-3-0 (WWLWW)
 
Few men have reached the heights of Thoreaux AssKicken at Aspire MMA, dominating the 205lbs division since it's inception a recent TKO (Punches) loss to current champion Alejandro Scott in the co-main event of Just Bleed 25 was a hard pill to swallow, under the management of Kanis Lupis of the Vendetta alliance Thoreaux has assured his fan's that he is hungry to reclaim his title and was willing to accept all challengers.
 
Not one to miss an opportunity, multiple time challenger Apollo Creed answered the call with desires to put his two previous losses to Thoreaux both by submission to rest, Creed having 7 (T)KO win's to his name and a stand-up pedigree unmatched in the division has to be considered one of the most dangerous men in the promotion and has all of the raw tools required to send AssKicken tumbling down the rankings, who will survive?
 
Fight:
Wanting to put naysayers to rest and prove he could beat Creed using his striking skills AssKicken was cautious in the early goings testing out his reach as he zeroed in with his lethal jabs, Creed not wanting to commit to his counter strikes decided to step up his pace and push more aggressively pounding body shots that drained AssKicken before connecting with a head kick that cut AssKicken wide open, as if spurred on by the sight of his own blood AssKicken became more dangerous throwing strike after strike defensively as he sought to improve his position and recover, creed, however, pressed his attacked mixing in smacking leg kicks to the inside and a series of bone-crunching body kicks to the ribs before finally finishing AssKicken off with a beautiful hook securing a victory over his long-time nemesis. 
 
Winner - Apollo Creed by way of KO (Punch) : Fight Rating 51%

155lbs : Adam Baranowski v Marlo Stanfield
11w18.jpg vs 23b10.jpg
  Age: 20                                   Age: 23
  Height: 175 cm                        Height: 178 cm
  Weight: 155 lbs                        Weight: 169 lbs
  Record: 4-4-0 (WLLWL)        Record: 12-4-0 (WWLWW)
 
Adam Baranowski has had no easy path fighting the likes of Bonerz McGee and Hatfield McCow in recent times suffering multiple decision loss's but with a ray of light at the end of the tunnel he managed to claw out a third round TKO (Punches) victory over Glen Taylor at Just Bleed 24, immediately following his win Baranowski proceeded to call out Marlo Stanfield due to a minor altercation earlier in the night backstage, setting the stage for tonight's explosive bout.
 
Fresh off decisive victory against Miles North at Just Bleed 25 Baltimore native "KING" Marlo Standfield was informed by "associates" that his opponent Adam Baranowski had "put his name on the streets" when approached by journalists in the weeks leading up to Aspire 28 Marlo had this to say "He used my name? In the street? ... Talk, motherfucker! He call me a punk? He wants to talk about what's on my mind? fuck you know about what I need on my mind, mother fucker? My name was on the street? When we bounce from this shit here, y'all going to go down".
 
Fight:
You could feel the atmosphere change tonight when Marlo Standfield stepped foot in the cage, a look of disgust across his face as he looked on at Baranowski, no fear in the eyes of the Brooklyn native as he stared down the King of Baltimore both men refused to touch gloves and raced to the center to meet each other with Standfield getting the opening strike with a nasty inside leg kick and a follow-up jab before pressing into the clinch and applying pressure with a mix of body shots and uppercuts eventually rocking Baranowski but as if to sustain the punishment seemed to back off the idea of moving in for the finish, instead moving the fight back into the clinch and continuing the brutal assault.
 
During the intermission Baranowski's corner can be heard shouting instructions while Standfield refused to un-fixate his eyes from the man across the cage, the second round saw much the same as the first with reports from fan's at cage side suggesting that Standfield repeatedly yelled at Baranowski "Say my name bitch", "whats my name? My name's KING mother fucker" until finally, a crushing uppercut took Baranowski down.
 
Winner - Marlo Stanfield by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 66%
 
 
 
205lbs : Adlet Mayer v Philo Beddo
14416041157623.gif vs 27w30.jpg
  Age: 22                                   Age: 22
  Height: 187 cm                        Height: 191 cm
  Weight: 200 lbs                        Weight: 214 lbs
  Record: 6-3-0 (WLWLL)        Record: 6-2-0 (WWLWW)
 
Considered one of the brightest prospects at 205lbs Adlet Mayer possess all of the intangible qualities required to be a champion but high profile loss's to Darth Sidious, Alejandro Scott and Apollo Creed have stalled his rise to the top of the division, winning a 3 round war with Neo Oen at Just Bleed 25.5 he took aim at versatile striker "Cowboy" Philo Beddo who received plaudits as the "best young striker at 205lbs" by Aspire Magazine, Adlet took issue with this having knocked out Nasko Stefanov at Just Bleed 19 while Beddo had failed to finish the same opponent while ultimately beating Stefanov at Just Bleed Black Friday, Beddo laid down the gauntlet to Adlet in an interview in the march edition of the magazine calling Adlet to the cage to settle the issue.
 
Fight:
Adlet came charging out of his corner directly into a snug takedown into half guard pinning his opponent to the ground as Beddo looked for an escape route, stuffing his opponent Adlet peppered him with strikes looking to stay busy under the watchful eye of the referee, Beddo not one to be forgotten on the bottom kept himself busy trying to secure at first a guillotine to no available before moving to sweep however this was expertly countered as Adlet smoothly transitioned into side control and continued to reign down strikes forcing Beddo to expend more and more energy surviving the onslaught, eventually Beddo was able to reverse his fortune and secure half guard again this time in a better position to finish his opponent he attempted both a triangle and an armbar before the round would end, Adlet taking the score cards for round 1 in dominate fashion.
 
Coming out for the second round Beddo shocking everyone in the arena given the situation in the first round came out of his corner and directly into a takedown visibly shaking Mayer as he is caught entirely off guard, Beddo ceasing on the opportunity laid waste to Mayer with postured strikes before quickly transitioning into an arm triangle forcing Adlet to tap. What a turn around of events lady's and gents!
 
Winner - Philo Beddo by way of Submishion (Armbar) : Fight Rating 46%
 
 
 
170lbs : Rafal Zamana v Brannigan Steele
7w25.jpg vs 23w9.jpg
  Age: 26                                   Age: 23
  Height: 180 cm                        Height: 178 cm
  Weight: 181 lbs                        Weight: 180 lbs
  Record: 9-10-1 (LWLDW)        Record: 4-3-0 (LLWLW)
 
Determined Boston native Brannigan Steele has hit upon hard times of late suffering TKO loss's to both Dum Debble and Bomb Com and will be looking to reset his fortunes as he faces polish stalwart Rafal Zamana, known for his granite chin and deceptively lethal submission skills Rafal told reporters for the Aspire Magazine that he intended to "Break this little man's leg off and take it home to Ostroleka". Having recently received his black belt from the LOD camp it will be interesting to see if this gristled veteran with all of his experience win out against raw talent and youth.
 
Fight:
Steele opens with a takedown into side control but Rafal Zamama managed to struggle to secure himself into half guard looking surprisingly comfortable for a man been assaulted with a barrage of ground and pound, Zamama failed to secure a guillotine began to take some nasty looking shots to the head that had given the referee come concern before Steele decided to start mixing elbows to the side of Zamama's head to get the job done.
 
Winner - Brannigan Steele by way of KO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 83%
 
 
 
185lbs : Silent Bob v Jakub Chlapik
13888750301420.jpg vs 25w21.jpg
  Age: 21                                   Age: 21
  Height: 184 cm                        Height: 196 cm
  Weight: 184 lbs                        Weight: 192 lbs
  Record: 3-2-0 (WLWWL)        Record: 2-3-0 (WWLLL)
 
In what is expected to be a standup war between two of 185lbs most exciting prospects, first up we have Silent Bob fighting out of famous Elite Punishment camp managed by one of the best managers of all time Louie DePalma and training out of the state of the art White Eagle gym right here in Los Angeles, his opponent the Czech Republic native Jakub Chlapik out of The Hart Foundation camp managed by Jojo Banzai a relatively new manager with a promising record look's to upset the establishment and take what would be his biggest career victory, win or lose we at Aspire MMA are very excited about the future for both of these stunning fighters with limitless potential.
 
Fight:
Insiders at the Elite Punishment gym in Montreal had given me hints that we might see something special in this one and Silent Bob did not disappoint, from the opening seconds of the fight Bob landed a crippling head kick to Chalpik sending him hurtling to the floor like a sack of potatoes, Bob keeping his distance waved Chlapik back to his feet only to be welcomed with another head kick attempt and slicing cut across his left eye. Chalpik finally getting some offense in went for a head kick of his own perhaps hoping to catch Bob in the surprise of the moment but he failed to commit to the action and was shown just how it's done by Bob's skillfully placed heavy head kick putting Chalpik's lights out on the spot at just 19 seconds into the first round.
 
Winner - Silent Bob by way of TKO (Head Kick) : Fight Rating 100%

205lbs : Jako Day v Jack Dempsey
38b13.jpg vs 16w12.jpg
  Age: 27                                   Age: 29
  Height: 189 cm                        Height: 185 cm
  Weight: 206 lbs                        Weight: 205 lbs
  Record: 8-6-0 (LLWLW)        Record: 8-1-0 (WLWWW)
 
You cannot talk about Aspire MMA without mentioning Jako Day's name, he has been here since day 1 and has always proved himself to be an exciting fighter the fan's look forward to seeing, with an impressive amateur background Jack "The Manassa Mauler" Dempsey step's into his first fight in the Aspire cage looking to make a statement to the 205lbs division that he has arrived.
 
Fight:
Experience was key tonight as Jako Day looking to put his career back on track was not going to be stopped by new comer Jack Dempsey, setting in for the long haul and avoiding Dempsey's numerous clinch attempts day would counter clinch almost as a point of defense getting into the position and then weaving right back out much to the bemusement of Dempsey who seemed to get more and more frustrated as the rounds went on, suffering a cut early in round 1 there was legitimate concern from his corner that a stoppage was on the cards but against the odds Jako was able to use his raw determination and veteran experience to bring the fan's of Aspire MMA one more great fight.
 
Winner - Jako Day by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 70%
 
 
 
185lbs : George Orwell v Holy Angel
15b14.jpg vs 12b3.jpg
  Age: 28                                   Age: 22
  Height: 183 cm                        Height: 191 cm
  Weight: 190 lbs                        Weight: 195 lbs
  Record: 6-2-0 (WLWWL)        Record: 1-1-0 (WL)
 
Scrappy George "1984" Orwell looked good in his last outing against Jacob Connor Kenway delivering a thundering uppercut for a TKO (Punches) victory, his opponent Holy "War" Angel just 22 is a clinch machine that in another life may have been good enough to be KT world champion, looking  to make his first appearance for Aspire MMA and show his versatility in the cage "War" Angel has made it known that "conspiracy nutcase Orwell will be speaking double when I'm finished with him".
 
Fight:
There can be no doubt that George Orwell can get it done standing up with the best of them but tonight Holy "War" Angel put on a clinical display of accuracy and clinch control in what was a single round decimation of "1984", early on Angel rushed for the clinch forcing Orwell on the defensive as he decisively dominated the position before curiously deciding to let it go and circle out momentarily to land some strikes leading to Orwell been cut wide open before returning to the familiar clinch position to continue his assault on Orwell's body before finally loading up a thunderous high kick that sent Orwell stumbling backwards and as if without mercy the barrage of punches that followed would bring an end to the fight.
 
Winner - Holy Angel by way of TKO (Kicks & Punches) : Fight Rating 60%
 
 
 
155lbs : Reno Rawlings v Glen Taylor
40b10.jpg vs 16b18.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 22
  Height: 178 cm                        Height: 175 cm
  Weight: 165 lbs                        Weight: 162 lbs
  Record: 4-5-0 (LLWWL)        Record: 3-3-0 (LWWLW)
 
Elite level wrestler Reno Rawlings looks to grind out a win against his opponent striker "The Hitman" Glen Taylor who comes off a loss to Adam Baranowski at Just Bleed 24. Having struggled against strikers in the past it will be interesting to see if Reno has what it takes to turn things around.
 
Fight:
In our opening bout of evening, Taylor made his presence known by catching Rawlings on the jaw early on and following up with a takedown attempt that was well defended. Rawling weathering the storm would counter into a takedown of his own moments later following up with some punishing ground strikes putting Taylor to sleep in just 2:57 of the first round.
 
Winner - Reno Rawlings by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 75%
 
 
 
The Aftermath:
 
FON - Darth Sidious vs Thomas Peterson
KON - Holy Angel
SON - Philo Beddo
 
 
Following Just Bleed 28 Apollo Creed's management decided he should take a break from active competition to tighten up some areas in his game before stepping back into the cage to make a run at the title, as such Aspire MMA has parted way's with Apollo for the moment but we look forward to seeing him back with us in the future.

Potential fights coming off the back of tonight's show for the Just Bleed 32 card on the 8th of April are Jakub Chlapik vs George Orwell and Thoreaux AssKicken vs Adlet Mayer.on the undercard, the show's main event already set to be 145lbs hotshots Misha Collins vs Michail Podolski.

With both Silent Bob and Holy Angel putting on stellar performances of a similar nature and due to genuine fan desire to see them go to war with each other that fight has been proposed for Just Bleed 33, also proposed for Just Bleed 33 is Cleon Wright seeking to be another hurdle on Philo Beddo's rise back to the top and Darth Sidious vs Aspire MMA new comer Gerrald James in what will determine the legitimate contender for the 205lbs title.
 
 
Our next event will be Just Bleed 29 on the 18th of March headlined by 145lbs champion Riff McGee vs Derui Pake in what is sure to be an out and out war for the gold, McGee is fresh off a KO win at Just Bleed 25 having previously been mostly known for his lethal BJJ skills having scored 5 consecutive submission victories, Pake known for his destructive KO ability with both men coming from the illustrious Six Musketeers camp this will be one of the most spectacular main events we have ever had the pleasure to host. And in our co-main event, we will have Johnny Jones vs Ruben Kincaid both looking to establish themselves at the top end of the division, who has the drive to make it to the top? join us to find out!
 
Once again I want to thank all of our managers for the great support and words of advice I have received over the past couple of weeks, I have had some great suggestions on how to improve the organisation and I hope you start to see the rewards reaped from that shortly, to all the supporters of Aspire MMA, truly thank you.

Aspire MMA - Just Bleed 29 - Live from the Venice Beach Arena (6500) : Attendance - 5317 : Event Rating - 198.92 
Betting: Aspire Casino
 
1488022735JB29.jpg
 
Thoughts from the CEO:
This week we completed the transition from Just Bleed MMA to Aspire MMA with ownership of the organisation officially transferring to myself for a settlement of $2,500,000 total, this was a huge step for me and I thank all of our current active managers who gave me the confidence to take it, I would like to thank our founder JB for all his continued contributions to Team Aspire.
 
In other related yet surprising news, the Aspire alliance has also concluded negotiations and is proud to announce it has acquired Revolution XC (285k+) out of Los Angeles, the intention at this time is to keep the promotions separate but you can expect co-promotion going forward with our current 265lbs champion Huell Babineaux already signed to fight the RXC champion Dimitri Zaitsev on the 9th of April at the Ready or Not event.
 
Since I'm sure it will come up, I honestly had no idea that RXC was going to be for sale or that JB would be interested in acquiring it but that is how the situation played out and we are looking to make the best of it for all concerned going forward, while I will not be directly involved with the running of RXC I want to assure it's roster that I will do all I can to assure they are afforded the same respect and diligence that I try to provide here at Aspire MMA.
 
With the recent closure of Primal Fear 280K+ out of New York following it's concluding event Primal 60 Nuclear we have acquired the contracts for a significant portion of it's roster with over $1,000,000 in potential contracts sent out over the period and many of them to the date of posting having been accepted.
 
What does this mean going forward?, in short it mean's the quality of events we are going to be able to bring you going forward has dramatically improved, top contenders from the Primal Fear organisation will in general integrate into our ranks with bouts booked between now and Aspire 34 at which point we intend to do a "soft roster reset" with most of our divisions going unbooked until the conclusion of that event to allow us to enter the next phase of Aspire (the PPV era) with all potential match-ups open to us.
 
To our managers this mean's some of you may find that you reach inactivity clause triggering status over this period, we ask you all to stay with us and know that we do this for the greater good of the org and to put you all in a better standing going forward, PPV is not only massive for the company but it will be massive for all of our fighters over the long run.
 
In exciting news entering the promotion is seasoned submission warrior and current Highland Games 265lbs champion 15-7-0 John "Handsome" Machado (275562), ordinarily he would most likely face the winner of the Keith Bishop vs Huell Babineaux bout following Huells super fight in RXC, but given the length of time between now and then it's likely he will fight in the meantime, more information to follow.
 
Additionally I'm excited to announce that Aspire MMA will host the final of the Old Dog For the Road +38 year old tournament between Escobar De Vega (179893) vs Nelson Muntz (165724) at Just Bleed 31 on the 1st of April 2017, I'm looking forward to this one personally and I would like to thank Mickey Hart (89500) for trusting this task to us.
 
As a result I'm currently considering opening the 265+ division up to +35 year olds as an ID unrestricted division with 1 or 2 fight rolling contract's so old timers have a place to duke it out, contracts would be relatively low if I'm been 100% honest with you as the point is to provide some card filling so expect 5k across as standard unless you have some major hype or a legendary legacy, but my assumption is by 35+ you are most likely retired or in a position to not care about the money so much as the chance to keep fighting if that is your desire. If you have a guy who fits the bill then let me know so I can garner the interest levels.

145lbs : Riff McGee v Derui Pake
14452843098732.gif vs 14686804636888.gif
  Age: 24                                   Age: 23
  Height: 171 cm                        Height: 172 cm
  Weight: 150 lbs                        Weight: 148 lbs
  Record: 8-0-0 (WWWWW)        Record: 6-0-0 (WWWWW)
 
Fresh of a championship win at Just Bleed 25 on the 18th of February 2017 145lbs fire-cracker Riff McGee made an instant impact in the division scoring a win over long time veteran Tyrone The Crack Head at Just Bleed 22 on the 28th of January 2017 before going to war with former champion Carl Kingston for the gold winning in spectacular fashion with a devastating melee of strikes in the 4th round, his challenger Derui Pake has competed against some tuff competition to make his first shot at the title, his exceptional wrestling base is second only to his sensational Muay Thai with all six of his professional fights ending in successful TKO finishes this dangerous fighter looks to make recently crowned champion Riff McGee his next victim.
 
Fight:
And in our main event of the evening champion Riff McGee moved directly to the centre of the cage challenging Derui Pake to a brawl with a wild uppercut right to the jaw that Pake responded to with a series of strikes that forced the champion to reconsider. McGee looking to use his lethal kicks to his advantage set about dismantling Pakes resolve with a number of low kick attempts that Pake having studied tape of McGee was easily able to avoid.
 
Scoring with stiff counters Pake seemed to be getting the better of the standup war with McGee looking more for a powerful finish calibre strike rather than a more accurate attempt stuck to his game plan as Pake was content to maintain range and pick his shots.
 
McGee looking excellent in the second minute of the fight began to find his shots and inflict serious concern for the challenger while adding pressure seeking for the takedown attempt, Pake to his credit defended well sprawling before transitioning to a nice side step counter to the body before moving back to his optimal range, eventually in the third minute of the round champion McGee finally got his man with a well-timed jab on the button that rocked Pake.
 
While attempting to recover from the devastating blow Pake wiped what appeared to be vaseline out of his eye leading to much speculation as to how it had got on his eye in the first place, McGee having no inclination for sympathy cracked Pake with a massive hook to the side of the head successfully defending his title for the very first time.
 
Following the fight McGee took to the microphone and made it known that he was ready for StrikeForce Union's 145lbs champion Michael Kristian and that they would meet at Just Bleed 34 on the 22nd of April 2017.
 
Winner - Riff McGee by way of KO (Punch) : Fight Rating 44%
 
 
   
185lbs: Johnny Jones v Reuben Kincaid
14835738108864.png vs 17w21.jpg
  Age: 24                                   Age: 23
  Height: 195 cm                        Height: 190 cm
  Weight: 200 lbs                        Weight: 200 lbs
  Record: 8-5-0 (WWLLW)        Record: 10-1-0 (WLWWW)
 
Current Bravado Productions (280k+) 185lbs champion Reuben "Agent Orange" Kincaid had a less than perfect start to his Aspire MMA career with a loss to Ken Womack at Just Bleed 21 on the 21st of January 2017 but bounced back with an impressive first round knockout of tenacious Joshua Redding at Just Bleed 25 on the 18th of February 2017 setting the stage for tonight's bout with his opponent Vendetta camp mainstay Johnny Jones, with destructive knees and elbows in his arsenal this dominate clinch fighter cannot be under-estimated, known to many as somewhat a gate keeper at 185 Jones is looking to stake a claim to his own title run with dominant victories over both Mister Turtle at Just Bleed 24 on the 11th of February 2017 and Joshua Redding via TKO at Just Bleed 21 on the 21st of January 2017.
 
Fight:
Knowing "Agent Orange" Reuben Kincaid likes to finish his opponents early Johnny Jones looked to make use of his exceptional Muay Thai and comparable wrestling to take Kincaid to task in the clinch but suffered a cut as a result of swift punch to the left eye following a brutal looking hook to the body that stunned Jones momentarily, looking to land a knee to the head Jones received another crushing shot to the bread basket before Kincaid exited the clinch favouring to strike from the outside.
 
Throughout the round Jones would repeatedly reinstigate the clinch with Kincaid doing well to avoid most of the incoming damage while continuing to score well with the judges securing the round.
 
Early in the second round Jones attempted a head kick but found himself countered with a combination of lefts and rights that rocked him as Kincaid followed into full mount, failing to make the most of the situation Kincaid seemed content to control his opponent and seek to advance his position allowing Jones the vital time he required to recover his senses.
 
Jones struggled to escape his position and Kincaid failed to impress the referee leading to a resetting of the action with a standup been called, once back on the feet Jones showed his class with a number of vicious shot's but Reuben Kincaid stayed consistent once again securing the round.
 
Looking to finish in the final round Jones landed a stunning high kick but seemed fatigued from his round two struggle to escape from below resulting in Kincaid's cool under fire counter striking to prevail finishing the round following Kincaid ramming Jones up against the cage into the clinch and utilising his dirty boxing before pushing off with a quick right hook that tumbled Jones to his knee's before the referee stepped in. 
 
Winner - Reuben Kincaid by way of TKO(Strikes) : Fight Rating 69%
 
 
    
170lbs: Troy Manning v Rusoposkinen Clintsari
27w35.jpg vs 12b5.jpg
  Age: 29                                   Age: 21
  Height: 198 cm                        Height: 185 cm
  Weight: 179 lbs                        Weight: 185 lbs
  Record: 9-3-0 (WWWWL)        Record: 11-5-0 (WLWWL)
 
Earning tonight's bout due to his crushing defeat of Silvan Wiltord at Just Bleed 26 on the 25th of February 2017 "The Natural" Troy Manning has fast become one of the most exciting prospects at 170lbs with his undeniable ability to KO an opponent in a blink of an eye and his solid wrestling base this striker has his eyes firmly on securing his place at the top of the division. Straight out of Helsinki Fighting Leauge former 170lbs HFL champion Rusoposkinen Clintsari coming off a TKO (Strikes) victory against Nick Gonzalez at HFL:52 on the 25th of February 2017 seeking to establish himself as a contender for the Aspire 170lbs title the Finnish native look's set to face his biggest challenge to date.
 
Fight:
Early into the first round Troy Manning was cut by a particularly nasty looking hook that may have given the impression to the untrained eye that he had sustained more damage than he actually did and in the early goings of this fight Troy was legitimately dominate in the standup until Clintsari managed to secure a clinch and enforce his game plan, what followed was a master class in scathing strikes and excellent positional awareness constantly beating Manning's attempts to regain dominance, the first round undisputedly for Rusoposkinen.
 
The cut man in Troy's corner did a fantastic job of closing up his wound in-between rounds and Manning game out to use his reach to keep Clintsari at bay while ensuring he did enough to tip the balance of the judges score cards while Clintsari was content to be patient and counter strike as he conserved energy waiting for his moment to take the fight into his zone the clinch it was clear that in a world without the clinch Manning would have Clintsari's number, content to have taken the right Manning smiled as he returned to his corner.
 
It was during the third and final round that Clintsari would get his desire to return to his zone however, this time Manning was able to use his height to his advantage deflecting many of Clintsari's strikes. Manning failed on numerous occasions to secure a takedown sapping a lot out of him allowing Clintsari to use the last of his reserves to maintain activity enough to edge out a decision.
 
Winner - Rusoposkinen Clintsari by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 60%

145lbs: Yuki Shojo v Mads Nordskov
13w12.jpg vs 20w1.jpg
  Age: 22                                   Age: 22
  Height: 165 cm                        Height: 171 cm
  Weight: 140 lbs                        Weight: 138 lbs
  Record: 8-1-0 (WWWWW)        Record: 5-1-0 (WWWLW)
 
In what has the potential to be one of the most explosive fights of the evening we have long time 135lbs Madness MMA (formerly Paico) stalwart Yuki Shojo making his 145lbs debut against Helsiniki born Mads Nordskov also formerly of the 135lbs division having recently moved up to fight and defeat Albert De Salvo at Just Bleed 26 on the 25th of February 2017 by Unanimous decision. Both men are known to dig deep and grind out results but have the ability to finish when backs are against the wall, expect an all out war.
 
Fight:
Attempting to instigate the clinch as early as possible Yuki Shojo showed his hand early allowing Nordskov to patiently counter with stiff shots to the body but determined to get his position Shojo closed the distance and began to unload a series of knees and hooks that failed to land as Nordskov worked to control his opponent from a very defensive posture.
 
It's clear from watching Nordskov that he has spent time working on his strength, this more than anything has been his greatest ally when trying to figure out the enigma that is Yuki Shojo. Weathering the initial storm Nordskov was able to start landing body shots of his own reducing Shojo's resolve until late in the second minute when Nordskov was able to push away from a now depleted Shojo and start to line up his shots.
 
Combinations of jabs, leg kicks and follow-up cross's left Yuki Shojo feeling under pressure until a final flurry dropped him to the ground rocking the young warrior as Mads Nordskov waved him back to his feet. Brushing the blood away from his face having been busted open sometime during the previous melee it was the finality of a big right hand that clipped Shojo that would bring an end to the fight as Nordskov wasted no time in following his opponent into the mount and dropping bombs to ensure the finish.
 
Winner - Mads Nordskov by way of TKO(Strikes) : Fight Rating 57%
 
 
    
170lbs: Your Name Here v Ivan Gore
14804926354912.gif vs 14489231794444.png
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 172 cm                        Height: 179 cm
  Weight: 170 lbs                        Weight: 175 lbs
  Record: 7-4-0 (WLLWW)        Record: 6-2-0 (WLWWW)
 
Following his decision victory over former champion Chance Birmbaum at Just Bleed 22 Your Name Here who had previously lost to Chance for the title back in November 2016 and followed up with a loss to Ivan Gore in December 2016 took the mic and declared that tonight was the night his career was rebooting and that Ivan Gore was next regardless of if he liked it or not, but despite fan's calling for the bout in a weird turn of events Chance was instead booked to fight Ivan Gore at Just Bleed 25.5 infuriating Your Name Here who refused to fight until Ivan Gore became available.
 
After losing to then-champion Jack Stone at Just Bleed 19 on the 7th of January 2017 it was clear Ivan Gore needed to regain momentum if he was going to climb back to the top of the division, doing so emphatically by dispatching former champion Chance Birmbaum via TKO (Strikes) of mid-way into the third round of the Just Bleed 25.5 event on the 18th of February 2017 and proceeding to respond to Your Name Here's callout during his post-fight interview stating that "This guy might of beat Chance but he hasn't got a chance in hell against me and he knows it, no chance in hell".
 
Fight:
Your Name Here hence forward known as YNH used his natural speed to avoid the opening melee while Gore took time to test the reactions of his opponent every aware that caution was the order of the day against this dangerous competitor, following a series of beautiful strikes Gore feinted a straight left to the body drawing the attentions of YNH long enough work a spinning back fist directly to the jaw into the mix.
 
As instructions continued to be called from Gore's corner it became evident that YNH was beginning to become frustrated that his high damage, high counter strategy was failing to reap the rewards and as the round closed out it was Gore who had pleased the judges so far.
 
Fairing much stronger in the second round YNH battled against Gore's unrelenting kicks to the mid-section with a clinical display of working his opponent over with the jab while avoiding incoming damage despite giving up a significant reach advantage his viper-like ability to move into strike and out before his opponent could react kept this round in hot debate.
 
Knowing the certainty of the first round was long behind him Gore came out looking aggressive aiming to close down his opponent into the clinch and proceeded to use the last of his reserves to enact as much punishment as physically possible, staying ever active as to avoid the wrath of the referee it was YNH who would finally break the clinch in the fourth minute of the bout hoping to establish enough range to get the finish he most desperately needed.
 
Controversy rang in when a none intentional knee to the groin at the hands of Gore sent Your Name Here hampering to the ground in pain, after a brief respite the bout continued but the clock had been in the favour of Gore closing out the fight 27:30, 28:29, 28:29.
 
Winner - Ivan Gore by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 66%
 
 
  
185lbs: Khunbish Borjigin v Ken Womack
14573576063102.jpg vs 14838239669200.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 24
  Height: 186 cm                        Height: 178 cm
  Weight: 194 lbs                        Weight: 182 lbs
  Record: 4-1-0 (WWWWL)        Record: 6-3-0 (LWWWL)
 
Former 185lbs title contender Ken "The Situation" Womack fighting out of Krefeld, Germany is one of the most complete fights in the division having taken champion Casper Timmermans the distance in a very competitive 5 round brawl for supremacy at Just Bleed 24 on the 11th of February 2017, failing to secure the title however due to a decision loss Ken look's to get back on track. Perhaps looking to capitalise on Ken's fame following the title fight with Timmermans the young Khunbish Borjigin from the deepest parts of Ulaanbataar, Mongolia coming of four straight win's with three of them been via KO will be looking to test his limits.
 
Fight:
Touted as one of the best fights of the night by the live audience Ken Womack and Khunbish Borjigin left nothing to speculation providing a crowd-pleasing middle of the cage slugfest to start things off in electrifying fashion. It was Borjigin who seemed to have the better of the exchanges but Womack was able to score a brutal head kick that left Borjigin with a gruesome looking cut. In spite of his wounds, Borjigin managed to stay the course peppering Womack with his wide range of lethal kicks in the rounds that followed testing Womack's chin on a number of occasions and utilising a head kick of his own that would leave Womack with a matching cut during the early moments of the second round.
 
Ultimately Borjigin was just more active and while Womack certainly showed amazing heart to see out the fight it was not enough on the night to take the judges score cards. Despite the lack of a finish, this was a spectacular display of mixed martial arts and both competitors should be proud to have been part of the bout.
 
 
Winner - Khunbish Borjigin by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 76%
 
 
 
205lbs: Neo Oen v Peter Solberg   
6w1.jpg vs 38w20.jpg
  Age: 22                                   Age: 23
  Height: 175 cm                        Height: 182 cm
  Weight: 219 lbs                        Weight: 215 lbs
  Record: 4-3-0 (LWWLW)        Record: 13-5-1 (LWLLW)
 
Once the 205lbs champion of the Helsinki Fighting Leauge, Peter Solberg is known for his lethal ground game and big heart. Having suffered a loss at HFL:49 to Joels Van Wijnbergen while attempting to challenge for the title Peter decided to try his luck at Aspire MMA and was immediately greeted by "The Matrix" Neo Oen himself coming of a defeat to Adlet Mayer at Just Bleed 25.5 and also looking for redemption this fight is likely to go the distance with neither man wanting to stall as they attempt to return to form.
 
Fight:
Eager Neo Oen immediately attempted a takedown but Peter Solberg was able to circle away deflecting a follow-up of leg kicks and a second double leg takedown attempt that left both men pressed to the cage, Solberg came into this fight very aware he would need to focus on avoiding the takedown and has been working on his balance in the gym in the lead up to the fight and you can tell it's made a difference as he use's the clinched position against the cage to stay out of danger while scoring significant strikes on the score cards.
 
In the second round Neo Oen managed to close the distance and shift his weight successfully to transition a trip into half guard where he was able to effect his desire to submit his opponent and began to probe the limbs of Solberg for any weakness he could find, by chance Peter was able to reverse into top guard briefly before been rolled back within his guard as Neo One rained down strikes closing out the round with a near successful guillotine attempt scoring the round for Neo Oen.
 
You could audibly hear Solbergs corner tell him that if he stayed off the ground this round he would win and that was his intention immediately moving to pin Neo Oen to the side of the cage and connecting whenever possible with the accuracy of a sniper until half way into the round when Neo  Oen was able to counter a right hand into a driving takedown and all seemed lost for Solberg with multiple submission attempts levied against him he eventually managed to advance his position enough to claw out a referee standup marginally securing the round due to his earlier antics.
 
Winner - Peter Solberg by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 35%

145lbs: Domagoj Glavas v Carl Kingston
14144443388896.png vs 14394960755570.jpg
  Age: 24                                   Age: 24
  Height: 172 cm                        Height: 175 cm
  Weight: 148 lbs                        Weight: 145 lbs
  Record: 4-2-0 (LWWWL)        Record: 7-1-0 (LWWWW)
 
At Just Bleed 25 Carl Kingston lost his 145lbs title to current champion and tonight's main event Riff McGee taking his first career loss due to a late fourth round KO (Strikes) in a round that many believe Kingston to have been winning in a fight that could of gone either way, Kingston has not forgotten what happened and looks to make short work of his opponent tonight so that he can once again face off against his one-time deliverer Riff McGee. Not to be taken lightly his opponent Domagoj Glavas fighting out of the esteemed Corporation camp following a surprise loss to Tyrone The Crack Head at Just Bleed 25.5 on the 18th of February 2017 has a near perfect TWGC record scoring 11-3 win's mostly via submission, the Sydney Australia native holds a black belt issued by the Lucky Liam MMA Academy in London and certainly has the credentials to use it.
 
Fight:
Carl Kingston started to lay the ground work early on with some nasty sounding leg kicks and some stiff jabs but was eventually kick checked and countered into the clinch by Domagoj Glavas who pressed Kingston against the cage and worked to take him to the ground by pulling guard, feeling that Kingston was getting the better of the dirty boxing Glavas took a more cautious approach as Kingston broke out of the clinch and moved back to maintain his significant reach advantage.
 
The following rounds showcased exciting exchanges between both fighters in what was described in the arena as an all out war of attrition with devastating kicks delivered with bad intentions by Kingston on a regular basis successfully decimating the lower body of Glavas, doing no less than fantastically at deflecting as much punishment as humanly as possible Glavas would score numerous critical strikes but never managed to get the momentum to sway the fight.
 
Winner - Carl Kingston by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 76%
 
 
    
155lbs: Elijah David v Alexander Nevsky
37w14.jpg vs 36w22.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 22
  Height: 167 cm                        Height: 179 cm
  Weight: 165 lbs                        Weight: 168 lbs
  Record: 4-3-0 (WLLLW)        Record: 5-1-0 (LWWWW)
 
Once having knocked Elijah David out in the first round of their Just Bleed 15 meeting way back in December of 2016 Alexander Nevsky had been on a warpath at 155lbs before hitting a decision loss to Fujii Yusuke at Just Bleed 25 on the 18th of February 2017, Elijah followed his loss to Nevsky by also picking up a loss against Fujii Yusuke at Just Bleed 21 on the 21st of January 2017 but then bounced back with a decision victory over Reno Rawlings at Just Bleed 25.5 on the 18th of February leading to call's for Elijah to get another shot at one of the men who had previously defeated him, stepping up to the plate was none other than Alexander Nevsky, eager to put his warpath back into action. 
 
Fight:
In the first round Elijah David's game plan was to dictate the pace of the fight from range and avoid the clinch game at all costs, working well from the outside David was able to tag Nevsky with a number of score card pleasing shots but it was Nevsky's critical effective strike count and superior elusiveness that kept the fight extremely competitive until the third minute of the first round when Nevesky countered a failed combination of strikes into the clinch and began to affect his game plan, controlling David and working knees to his lower body it was this period that left David looking tired.
 
Towards the end of the first round David was able to break free of the clinch but Nevsky noticeably stepped up his pace and began to utilise his reach advantage to close down his opponent and show dominance as the round came to a close, getting the nod from the judges.
 
Coming out for the second round Nevsky continued to avoid strikes with cat-like reflexes and settled in for the early barrage of strikes David attempted to land further wearing himself down, as fatigue started to set in Nevsky was able to once again secure the clinch via a counter and set about dismantling David with his impressive Muay Tai skills before finishing with a huge combination of strikes and knees.
 
Winner - Alexander Nevsky by way of TKO(Strikes) : Fight Rating 65%
 
  
    
205lbs: Nasko Stefanov v Allen Boes
14710907653764.gif vs 37b19.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 21
  Height: 190 cm                        Height: 192 cm
  Weight: 210 lbs                        Weight: 214 lbs
  Record: 9-6-0 (WLLWL)        Record: 4-4-0 (WLLWL)
 
Having defeated long-time veteran Jako Day via KO (Punch) at Just Bleed 25.5 on the 18th of February 2017 Allen Boes seeks to right his record with a return bout against Nasko Stefanov who previously defeated him at Just Bleed Dickinson vs Midget on the 10th of December 2016 via TKO (Strikes), Nasko went on to defeat at the hands of Adlet Mayer at Just Bleed 19 on the 7th of January 2017 and Philo Beddo on the 27th of January 2017 before securing a crucial must-win situation against Walter White at Just Bleed 25.5 on the 18th of February 2017, this fight is important for both men as they stand at a cross roads in a very competitive division.
 
Fight:
Coming out strong in our first fight of the evening Allen Boes waists no time settling into his striking routine pressuring Nasko Stefanov into the clinch early into the round and controlling the action up against the cage Boes has got to be given credit for his excellent positioning here making it very difficult for Nasko to return fire while also inflicting maximum damage on his victim. Briefly, Boes broke the clinch as if to give Nasko a ray of hope only to snatch it away and re-engage to continue the onslaught, as the round came to an end a visibly shaken Nasko Stefanov stumbled to his corner.
 
Returning to the centre of the octagon a little unsteady Nasko Stefanov received a brutal right hand followed up with a left hook and finally, a magnificent flying punch connected putting Stefanov out to sleep in spectacular fashion. An absolute showcase of what Allen Boes is capable of at 205lbs.
 
Winner - Allen Boes by way of KO (Punches) : Fight Rating 60%
 
 
 
The Aftermath:
 
 
FON - Rusoposkinen Clintsari vs Troy Manning
KON - Alexander Nevsky
SON - N/A
 
Following his 2nd round TKO (Strikes) victory over Elijah David exciting prospect Alexander Nevsky's contract term had come to an end, negotiations are in process to see this bright young talent return to Aspire MMA but we wish him well in his future should he decide to move onto other opportunities.
 
The same can be said for former 145lbs champion Carl Kingston who's tenure with Aspire MMA has provided some of the most thrilling encounters we have had the pleasure to host and while negotiations are taking place we expect Carl will be a success no matter where he decides to fight going forward and we thank him for his contributions to Aspire MMA.

170lbs : Dum Debble vs Ramon Gracie
1w21.jpg vs 10w17.jpg
  Age: 22                                   Age: 26
  Height: 181 cm                        Height: 180 cm
  Weight: 175 lbs                        Weight: 180 lbs
  Record: 7-1-1 (WDWWW)        Record: 15-1-0 (WWLWW)
 
And in our main event we have challenger former StrikeForce Union 170lbs champion Ramon Gracie who has suffered only a single loss in his career against two-time nemesis Tarkhan Naranbaatar having avenged that loss at Strikeforce Union #48 on the 19th of February decided to head to Aspire MMA for a super fight with the potent 170lbs champion Dum Debble fresh of his controversial series with Jack Stone at Just Bleed 25.5 on the 18th of February 2017 will be looking to establish himself as the company's star attraction by defending against the rival invader.
 
Fight:
Straight of the bat Ramon Gracie attempted and failed a takedown attempt that was countered with a solid strike to midsection as champion Dum Debble laid forward with some well defended strikes that Ramon tried to side step into a takedown drive that resulted in an excellent display of sprawling defence. Following up Ramon would not be discouraged and scored the takedown he had been searching for directly into the half guard.
 
Looking to control the action Ramon lowered the pace and advanced into the mount putting the champion in distress momentarily before strangely proceeding to move back to the half guard resulting in the referee warning Ramon that his lack of action will result in a stand up, the crowd showing its displeasure at the situation at this point spurred Debbled on to defend against a kimura Ramon was trying to work and eventually the fight was stood up in the closing seconds of the round, a nod for Ramon but this crowd is not pleased.
 
Ramon suffered a cut early in the second round following a crisp jab that stopped him in his tracks, instinctually sensing the danger Ramon moved into the clinch looking to use his experience in the position to anchor himself while he recovered it was Debble that landed the majority of the significant strikes showing his quality and forcing Ramon to re-think his plan.
 
Deciding to take the fight to the ground and fish for a finish Gracie dragged Debble to the ground and worked his feet into Debble's thighs, pushing off Debble it was clear that Ramon was working an armbar from the bottom. Flipping to his stomach he cracked hard on Debble's arm forcing the champion to tap or snap. And NEW!!!.
 
Following the fight Ramon Gracie thanked his opponent for the opportunity tonight and promised the fan's his next fight he would be determined to put on a great show and make the 170lbs title the most desired title in the sport. A brief shout out to his friends and family before heading to the after party our new champion Ramon Gracie.
 
Winner - Ramon Gracie by way of Submission (Armbar) : Fight Rating 30%

155lbs : Bonerz McGee vs Fujii Yusuke
43w20.jpg vs 14531149387070.png
  Age: 24                                   Age: 23
  Height: 175 cm                        Height: 178 cm
  Weight: 165 lbs                        Weight: 160 lbs
  Record: 10-2-0 (WWWWW)        Record: 5-1-0 (WWLWW)
 
Having defeated Elijah David earning submission of the night via triangle at Just Bleed 21 bright prospect Fujii Yusuke went on to score a decision victory over Alexander Nevsky at Just Bleed 25 claiming his shot against dominant champion Bonerz McGee, McGee having vanquished Vinicius Costa into retirement at Just Bleed 25 on the 18th of February took no issue with the challenge, ever the company man McGee taking time out of his sponsorship tour promoting the new Aspire Nutrition brand giving seminars to fitness experts across the globe McGee had this to say to Aspire Magazine reporters "The kids impressive, I like his stuff but he's not the one to take this title... hey can we get this kid sent some Aspire Energy 160 he's going to need it!".
 
Fight:
Yusuke scored a well timed counter body kick and following up with an impressive overhand right that looked like it hurt more than the champion was willing to show McGee returned the big strike with one of his own cracking Yusuke hard enough to put him on the back foot, looking to counter Yusuke hit a number of stiff punches to the head and getting the better of the standup war early on while maintaining caution at McGee's one-punch knockout ability.
 
In what would prove to be a fatal mistake Yusuke perhaps been a little over confident took the fight into the clinch and was immediately over powered by McGee's superior wrestling resulting in Yusuke been man handled and dumped on the ground landing in the guard, comfortable from the bottom Yusuke attempted to pop his hips free and work an armbar attempt but McGee was ready to react and carefully manoeuvred the minefield of been in the guard of a superior BJJ practitioner deflecting a second submission attempt before finally giving up the dominant position to a well-timed reversal by Yusuke.
 
Looking like things were about to go his way Yusuke was surprised to find himself the victim of a triangle attempt by McGee, to the surprise of the live audience what should of been a rudimentary attack to prevent Yusuke has found himself tapping out to the champion!!! and STILL.
 
Winner - Bonerz McGee by way of Submission (Triangle) : Fight Rating 56%
 
 
 
155lbs : Justin Midget vs Bruno Tepes
20b9.jpg vs 14830307386753.jpg
  Age: 29                                   Age: 23
  Height: 160 cm                        Height: 176 cm
  Weight: 160 lbs                        Weight: 167 lbs
  Record: 12-4-0 (LWLLW)        Record: 2-1-0 (WWL--)
 
Former Pulse 155lbs champion Justin Midget is a skilled submission based veteran of the cage with 17 bouts to his name carrying 12 victories is seeking redemption following his Just Bleed 26 loss to Rodney Smith via triangle on the 25th of February 2017, his opponent for tonight relative newcomer Bruno Tepes a sensational boxer with a strong wrestling foundation fighting out of Santiago, Chile and coming off a TKO(Punches) victory over Dyno Mite at the QFC on the 12th of February 2017 looking to make his mark on Aspire MMA.
 
Fight:
Putting the arena on notice Tepes hit a devastating jab straight down the middle sending Midget stumbling backwards and forcing the fight into the clinch following up with a series of well-timed strikes that snapped the head of Midget back with short sharp shots to the head, the fans in attendance are on their feet expecting an early KO finish here but Midget is showing the heart of a champion weathering the storm and looking for a takedown attempt to escape the situation, failing to secure a single leg takedown it is becoming very clear that Tepes has complete control of the clinch and has scored more than enough to take the opening round on the judges score cards.
 
An excellent display of takedown defense denies Midgets repeated attempts to take this fight to the ground and eventually Tepes is able to lead with a jab once again into the clinch to restore the order of round one and set about unloading this time a barrage of body shots designed to take it's toll on Midgets reserves, looking to put distance between the two fighters Midget would work to improve his position but was take unaware by a shoulder strike that would rock him that was followed up with a right hook that could of ended the fight as time ran out.
 
Lunging in with a rapturous uppercut to chin Tepes then following up with a beautiful combination that crumpled Midget to the ground, not wanting to stop the fight prematurely the referee held of his judgement momentarily while Tepes encouraged Midget to stand back up only to counter a last ditch attempted takedown with a big right hand that would force the referee to step in to call and end to this bout.
 
 
Winner - Bruno Tepes by way of TKO(Strikes) : Fight Rating 77%

145lbs : Kuroda Atsushii vs Tyrone The Crack Head
14557927187789.jpg vs 1b12.jpg
  Age: 22                                   Age: 24
  Height: 172 cm                        Height: 150 cm
  Weight: 144 lbs                        Weight: 140 lbs
  Record: 1-3-0 (WLLL-)        Record: 12-6-0 (WLWWL)
 
Aspire MMA main-stay Tyrone The Crack Head has been one of the most successful decision fighters in the promotion securing big victories over Albert DeSalvo and Hoss moody leading to his showdown with Riff McGee at Just Bleed 22 on the 28th of January that he lost by decision, picking up a victory over Domagoj Glavas at Just Bleed 25.5 again by decision Tyrone is looking ot secure one big win to catapult him back towards a second showdown with Riff McGee.
 
"Emperor" Kuroda Atsushii has looked fantastic in his last outing at Aspire MMA with a decision victory over Vassily Solomin, fighting out of Elite Punishment in Los Angeles his creative striker likes to work in a mixed approach to the standup game with maniacal kicks and a proprietary double jab once said to have knocked a wild bear out during an ill-fated camping trip during the summer of 2011.
 
Fight:
A series of thumping leg kicks opened up the action for The Crack Head (TCH), Atsushii blocking what he can while patiently waiting to line up the perfect counter it was Atsushii significant reach advantage that became problematic for TCH in the early goings. Pushing forward inspite of his towering opponent of 22 cm's his taller TCH commanded respect with ever present body kick attempts and consistently pressing Atsushii to the back foot while seeking the opportunity to move into the clinch.
 
The round unfolded as a game of cat and mouse with Atsushii using his superior physical skills and natural reach advantage to posture himself in such a way to keep TCH from enacting his game plan while still hitting definitive strikes in retreat to secure what on score cards will certainly look like a dominate round for Atsushii.
 
During the early goings of the second round TCH was able to finally claim the clinch and impress uppon Atsushii his knee's to the body but they were well defended, seeking perhaps to finish the fight TCH seemed to be looking to score a big knee to the head but despite constant pressure Atsushii's resolve prevailed with most strikes well avoided until finally during the second minute of the fight Atsushii was able to break the clinch and return to his game of cat and mouse scoring enough critical strikes in the ensuing standup to once again edge out the round from a defensive position.
 
After two gruelling rounds TCH was visibly tired getting his head snapped back within seconds of the bell but his iron heart would see him to the end of the round before finally failing victim to the physical freak of nature Kuroda Atsushii's accurate strikes picking apart the energy reserves of his opponent and out striking him for the victory.
 
 
Winner - Kuroda Atsushii by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 76%
 
 
 
170lbs Dave Infamous vs Silvan Wiltord
18w18.jpg vs 2w2.jpg
  Age: 21                                   Age: 23
  Height: 176 cm                        Height: 175 cm
  Weight: 174 lbs                        Weight: 183 lbs
  Record: 2-1-0 (LWW--)        Record: 7-4-0 (LWWLW)
 
Lethal black belt "Destruction" Dave Infamous having perfected the armbar submission decided to stand and bang with Petter Norlin at Helsinki Fighting Leauge: 52 on the 25th of February and lost by decision, vowing to return to what made him a success his namesake Infamous BJJ skills this fight promises to end in a finish as his opponent sensational wrestler Silvan Wiltord is no stranger to the ground game having racked up seven submission victories to date.
 
Fight:
Scoring a nice looking jab Infamous looked to establish himself as the aggressor but was feinted by Wiltord into a shoot takedown that despite a fantastic sprawling display by Infamous resulted in a takedown into half guard, from this moment forward both competitors went about a master class in Brazilian ju-jitsu with no less than twenty-three submision attempts across both fighters.
 
Finally following a failed kimura attempt by Wiltord it was Dave Infamous that was able to advance his position into half guard before pushing his way into full guard, defending as best he could Wiltord tried to tuck his arms but Infamous had already isolated one of the limbs and set to work on locking his legs into position and locking his grasp about Wiltord's head, with a smile across his face he felt the exhilaration of his opponent tapping out.
 
Winner - Dave Infamous by way of Submission (Triangle) : Fight Rating 31%
 
 
 
145lbs Takeshi Hasimoto vs Rock Chuck
33w3.jpg vs 9w17.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 158 cm                        Height: 173 cm
  Weight: 142 lbs                        Weight: 149 lbs
  Record: 6-3-0 (WWLWW)        Record: 2-4-0 (WLLLL)
 
Three straight victories by decision have positioned talented Takeshi Hasimoto as one of the fastest rising stars of the 145lbs division but constant thorn in his side Rock Chuck having once again called out his "arch-nemesis" meet for what will be the final time in Aspire MMA.
 
Fight:
Chuck looking to finish early swung a thunderous failed combination that put him off balance leading to a double leg counter into his half guard with Hashimoto slowing down the pace in control while failing to land any significant strikes in the proceeding ground and pound leading to a referee standup.
 
Not content to stand Hashimoto once again countered a wild set of strikes into a takedown landing directly into Chuck's guard and once again setting in to control the action, this time putting more emphasis on his attempts to escape his situation Chuck was fortunate that almost all of Hasimoto's significant strike attempts were failing to land, despite the crowd's clear disenfranchisement with his tactics Takeshi Hashimoto unmistakenly dominated the round.
 
Wanting to put his opponent on notice Chuck opened the second round catching Hashimoto napping with a great takedown and proceeded to return the pounding he had received up until now, showing his class Hasimoto was able to reverse a failed elbow strikes momentum to improve his position and move into Chucks guard but a nice scissor sweep would return Chuck to the dominate position.
 
Chuck would work for a submission but ultimately found Hasimoto's superior defensive grappling to be a problem leading to an eventual standup and both fighters immediately trying to score a takedown to return the fight to the grapple zone. Hasimoto managed to shoot in for a successful takedown and once again went back to his lay and pray strategy garnering audible boo's from the audience but once again getting the nod from the judges.
 
Knowing a finish was now mandatory Chuck would become significantly more aggressive in the final round catching Hashimoto with several potentially fight stopping strikes but when all was said and done Hasimoto stuck to his game plan and enforced his desire to keep this fight grounded and controlled throughout the final round with Chuck valiantly seeking the submission finish as the round came to a close for a decision by the judges. 
 
Winner - Takeshi Hasimoto by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 27%

185lbs: William Wallace vs Ralph Machio
1b13.jpg vs 22w11.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 29
  Height: 185 cm                        Height: 190 cm
  Weight: 192 lbs                        Weight: 193 lbs
  Record: 4-2-0 (LLWWW)        Record: 8-9-0 (LLLWW)
 
One time title challenger William "Lion Heart" Wallace has basked in the limelight of been a title contender and the low's of the undercard, he has been one of the most exciting fighters in Just Bleed history but recent time's have not been so smooth, ready to re-energize his career he took aim at former FWC 185lbs champion Ralph Machio out of Montreal Canada. Having picked up his BJJ brown belt Machio will be looking to utilize his exceptional submission abilities.
 
Fight:
Wallace had no interest in allowing Machio to take this fight to the clinch keeping to the outside until opportunities presented themselves for an attempted takedown that was well defended by Machio and countered with his own takedown attempt that resulted in a stalemate before briefly rag-dolling Wallace off the side of the cage into his guard however, the ever elusive Wallace was able to quickly get back to his feet resetting the action.
 
Machio worked his ample boxing skills landing a series of beautiful right hands that raised the crowd while Wallace continued to look for the takedown securing a trip into side control but failing to secure the position Machio was fas tto recover into half guard. Cautious not to put himself in a submittable position Wallace was warned by the referee and eventually stood up but having done well to secure the takedown and control the action on the ground Wallace would take the round.
 
In the following round Machio looked increasingly aggressive while Wallace feinted takedown attempts to put Machio off balance, suffering a nice head kick Wallace smiled in response as he moved to take the fight to the ground resulting in a dog fight for positional control with multiple reversals and submission attempts followed by moments of crowd frustrating wrestling position jockeying that forced at one point the referee to stand the action up but immediately returned to the ground following an overhand right that was followed into a successful takedown by Machio securing himself the round.
 
The final round was yet another well-matched ground war that would ultimately result in neither fighter getting much ahead of the other until a borderline illegal elbow strike from Machio was warned away by the referee in the fourth minute of the fight finally putting an end to Wallaces defiance.
 
Winner - Ralph Machio by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 37%

  Weight: 134 lbs                        Weight: 142 lbs
  Record: 3-3-0 (LLWWW)        Record: 3-1-0 (LWWW-)
 
Svensk Triacylglycero is one of the most versatile young fighter on the 145lbs roster with an ability to finish in a number of lethal ways comes off a decision loss to Takeshi Hashimoto at Just Bleed 26 on the 25th of February 2017. Brent Burns comes into this one following his decision loss to Herschel Pettaway also at Just Bleed 26, both men are determined to make this must-win scenario a night of glory.
 
Fight:
It was all Svensk in the early going's with footwork blunders leading Burns directly into the onslaught of wild strikes that more often than not landed, sensing his situation Burns worked for a takedown attempt but found it stuffed and eventually countered by a double leg of Svensk's directly into Burn's full guard.
 
Working his ground and pound but failing to advance his position Svenks was warned by the referee to stay active and picked up his pace looking to pass into full mount while Burns worked for the escape to no avail.
 
During the fourth minute of the very first round having suffered multiple vaguely defended shots to the head Burns finally succumbed to the effective ground and pound of Svensk forcing the referee to call an end to the bout.
 
Winner - Svensk Triacylglycerol by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 48%
 
 
 
155lbs: Cenk John vs Miles North
14877015409257.png vs 14876379098341.png
  Age: 26                                   Age: 24
  Height: 168 cm                        Height: 194 cm
  Weight: 155 lbs                        Weight: 164 lbs
  Record: 5-10-1 (LLWLL)        Record: 4-4-0 (LLWLW)
 
Following his second round to "King" Marlo Stanfield via a brutal KO (Head Kick) at Just Bleed 25 on the 18th of February 2017 and his prior loss to Glen Taylor via KO (Punch) at Just Bleed 20 on the 14th of January 2017 some had started to question Miles Norths chin and he was determined to put any doubts to rest calling out anyone at 155lbs who wanted to put him to the test, the call was answered by well-traveled Cenk John a 26 year old Bhutan native based out of Amsterdam with 2 (T)KO victory's to his name in an otherwise storied career.
 
Fight:
John Cenk stepped into the cage looking like a greek god, this guy has clearly been working on his strength and conditioning easily avoiding a push kick attempt from Miles North looking to score a counter strike but was quickly put on the back foot by Miles north's pressing attempts to secure a head kick.
 
A jab to the face is easily avoided by North who used his notable agility to his advantage before a nice kick to the mid-section lands for North that is quickly followed up with the head kick finisher he had been seeking since the get-go tumbling John Cenk to the canvers forcing the refree to step in and firmly putting Miles North back on track.
 
Winner - Miles North by way of TKO (Kick & Punches) : Fight Rating 100%
 
 
 
170lbs: Sebastol Ceomo vs Maynard Keenan
41a7.jpg vs 10w1.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 29
  Height: 187 cm                        Height: 182 cm
  Weight: 176 lbs                        Weight: 175 lbs
  Record: 1-1-0 (LW---)        Record: 3-10-0 (LLLLL)
 
And in our opening bout we have Sebastol Ceomo coming off a decision loss to Sagai Tonkov at Just Bleed 26 on the 25th of February 2017 this promising young fighter had struggled against the superior wrestling of Tonkov and will certainly look to use his sizeable reach advantage to stay out of any compromising situations with journeyman Maynard Keenan a decision grinder previously of the Helsinki Fighting Leauge looking to reset his fortunes at 170lbs.
 
Fight:
From the second the bell rang Ceomo wasted no time in instigating the clinch, this time he was going to enforce his game plan and show his opponent the fury denied to him in this previous fight with Sagai Tonkov, Keenan looked to break out of his situation with a failed attempt to pull guard and suffered repeated body strikes for his trouble.
 
Keenan drew the ire of the crowd by stalling the action as much as possible with his exceptional strength and perseverance, Ceomo ever active scored heavily on the judges score cards with some fantastic pick'em strikes working to decimate his opponents resolve with Maynard Keenan having no answer until eventually been rocked late in the fourth round by a nice punch to the side of his head as Ceomo pursued a furious pace in what was a dominate round for him.
 
Out for the second round, Keenan had recovered his senses, looking to stay on the outside with a defensive leg strike that missed he found himself quickly seconded into the cage corner for another round of clinch destruction at the hands of his dominator Sebastol Ceomo.
 
As we entered the second round Keenan was again rocked by another stiff shot to the head similar to the first round rocking but unfortunately Ceomo missed with his attempted over top elbow finisher and Keenan was able to recover briefly before finally been taken out with a series of strikes that finalized with crushing uppercut bringing an end to the bout.
 
Winner - Sebastol Ceomo by way of TKO(Strikes) : Fight Rating 70%
 
 
 
The Aftermath:

185lbs : Cyril Westlake vs Harry Winston
43w5.jpg vs 14w16.jpg
  Age: 32                                   Age: 23
  Height: 185 cm                        Height: 178 cm
  Weight: 190 lbs                        Weight: 200 lbs
  Record: 13-2-0 (WLWWL)        Record: 10-5-0 (WLLWL)
 
First hinted at during the aftermath of Just Bleed 27 this bout was speculated to result in a challenger for Casper Timmermans title pitting former Strikeforce Union 185lbs champion Harry Winston against former Highland Games contender Cyril Westlake. However, recent organisation acquisitions presented additional challengers in an already stacked division leaving both knowing tonight they need to win in dominate fashion to secure the right to face the winner of the upcoming Timmermans vs Klimov card set to take place on the 8th of April 2017.
 
Adding further complication at the top end of the 185lbs division Ikka Runnisto, former Helsinki Fight Leauge 205lbs champion recently having made his 185lbs debut was quick to call out former Bravado 185lbs champion Reuben "Agent Orange" Kincaid a name that was heavily speculated to be in the running for a title himself following his stunning TKO victory over Johnny Jones has only complicated the matter more with both Kincaid and Runnisto set to face of at the 14,000 seat University Park arena on the 29th of April with the winner almost certainly positioned at the top end of the division it's all to play for, who get's the shot? ultimately the fighters will decide in the cage.
 
Fight:
Westlake open's up with a stiff jab that hits it's target as Winston fails a takedown attempt and gets countered by a quick right hand to the jaw as Westlake moves out of range of Winston's retaliation. Westlake continues to stuff Winston's takedown attempts, this has to be taking a toll on Winston's gas tank but he persists with a number of less than accurate yet all powerful failed strike attempts that seemed to frustrate him early on. Both men receive a standing ovation as they continue to give all they have in the centre of the cage with Westlake taking a tremendous shot to the nose that seems to be causing him some trouble.
 
Late into the third minute it was Harry Winston who shot in and bounced Westlake off the cage securing a takedown into his guard and proceeding to unleash furious ground and pound upon his target as he looked to control Westlake's leg and move into half guard as Westlake who had been noted to have drilled escapes over at Rusterman's gym in Las Vegas in the lead up to this fight looked to return to the standup. Winston using his ground superiority to control the action refused to allow Westlake to escape ploughing him with decisive ground and pound closing out the round from the dominate position and securing the nod from the judges.
 
Wanting to return to his comfort zone Winston changed levels and attempted a double leg takedown that Westlake failed to avoid as Winston grappled his opponent to the ground however, Westlake having drilled escapes in the run up to the fight managed to shoot straight back to his feet denying Winston temporarily and countering with a good right hand to the jaw. Not deterred Winston once again drives through with a takedown into the guard once again constructive the demise of his opponent with a barrage of ground and pound as Westlake did all he could to advance his fortunes on the ground. Having suffered minutes of crushing ground and pound the fan's in the arena gave it up for the fighting spirit of Westlake who against all odds had managed to not only survive the encounter but secure a sweep into the top position forcing Winston to go into emergency submission attempt mode and finishing out the round from the top position despite Winston again getting the nod from the judges overall.
 
Determined to stay on the outside to avoid been taken to the ground Westlake used all the strength he had within him to push off a clinch takedown attempt from Winston and sprawled the proceeding attempts valiantly with stiff counters to the jaw it was now clear Westlake was looking for a power-shot to put an end to his difficult night in the cage. Having suffered a nasty jab directly to the center of his face Winston gutted it out switching levels once more to enact a perfect takedown into side control and continued to land knees to the body and forearms to the face of Westlake as his opponent did his very best to weather the storm holding onto wrist control but late into the fourth round Westlake was both cut and rocked by a wild strike that opened him up for an unrelenting, undefendable decimation.
 
Having defeated his opponent Harry Winston took the microphone and announced that he did not give a damn who felt they deserved a title shot at 185lbs, this is his house and everyone can line up right behind him. He went on to say whoever win's between Casper Timmermans and Vova Klimov would just be keeping his belt warm, he showed ample respect for his dangerous opponent Cyril Westlake and said he hoped they meet each other again down the way.
 
Winner - Harry Winston by way of Submission (Strikes) : Fight Rating 65%
 

 
155lbs : Rodney Smith vs George Nassar
15b18.jpg vs 18w4.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 173 cm                        Height: 175 cm
  Weight: 147 lbs                        Weight: 165 lbs
  Record: 15-2-0 (WWLWL)        Record: 8-2-0 (WWLWW)
 
In a bout set to decide the next challenger to 155lbs champion Bonerz McGee's title former StrikeForce Union 155lbs champion Rodney Smith has attempted and failed to secure the Aspire title once before against Billy Bolek via KO (Punch) at the main event of Just Bleed 15 on the 16th of December 2016, refreshed and ready to get back to the top of the division Smith was able to pick up successive victories over Ryan McCarthy and Justin Midget over the following months, knowing that his chance at the title is within his grasp you can be sure that he will be giving his all to defeat his opponent George Nassar.
 
No stranger to championship gold George Nassar is the former 155lbs Helsinki Fighting Leauge champion with a brutal standup game and an even more lethal combination of raw country boy style wrestler strength and excellent BJJ presenting a potent path to destruction that many have fallen before with only two career losses to date. 
 
Fight:
Starting this one out as the most aggressive of the two fighters Rodney Smith went for the early finish with a massive uppercut resembling something out of street fighter but failed to land as Nassar used his impressive footwork to stay ever vigilant against his opponents strikes, with both men receiving a number of shots and returning fighter in the middle of the cage the fan's in attendance made it know they appreciated the action on display with a ruptures roar as Nassar took a moment to show-boat following a failed head kick by Rodney Smith.
 
Moving the fight into the clinch Rodney Smith found himself in a world of trouble as George Nassar applied his craft to jolt the head of his victim back repeatedly with lethal intent as both men gave everything they had but it was Nasser who was clearly getting the best of the situation early on with Smith failing to land a significant amount of his strikes and Nassar stepping up his aggression about half way into the round. Hearing the call from his corner to break the clinch knowing the desired damage had been done it was Nassar who returned the fight to the middle of the cage and set about dismantling his opponent. To his surprise Nassar was sent stumbling backwards following a heavy-handed jab that demanded respect and he responded by popping Smith directly under the eye following up with a straight down the middle that rocked Smith.
 
Trying to keep Nassar at bay with a last ditch attempt head kick that missed Smith was finally hit with a huge uppercut dropping him to the floor like a sack of potatoes and followed up with grievous ground and pound until the referee finally put an end to the bout. Having secured his title shot against champion Bonerz McGee a very happy George Nassar took the microphone and announced his intention to take the gold, he thanks the fan's and his opponent Rodney Smith who he called a true warrior and left the cage on the shoulders of his team looking forward to his future date with the title.
 
Winner - George Nassar by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 59%
 
 
 
 
205lbs : Peter Solberg vs Valentin Skovgaard
38w20.jpg vs 13w17.jpg
  Age: 24                                   Age: 23
  Height: 182 cm                        Height: 187 cm
  Weight: 215 lbs                        Weight: 210 lbs
  Record: 14-5-1 (WLWLL)        Record: 9-2-0 (WWLWL)
 
Valentine Skovgaard while holding a brown belt and been well known to his team mate's as a guru level practitioner of BJJ it has become clear that Skovgaard prefers to stand and bang with anyone who dare step foot in the cage with him, successful on all but two outings against arch nemesis Akoni Gray who beat him twice for the StrikeForce Union 205lbs title many fighters may have lost spirit but Skovgaard picked himself up and went right back into the cage picking up two more win's setting him on the path towards Aspire MMA and his fight tonight with former Helsinki Fighting Leauge 205lbs champion Peter Solberg, fresh of his recent decision win against youngest Neo Oen at Just Bleed 29 on the 18th of March. 
 
Fight:
Tenderising Skovgaards legs with a brutal offering of leg strikes it was Peter Solberg who seemed more aggressive coming into this fight with Skovgaard happy to maintain a counter posture displaying excellent striking defense against the early flurry from Soldberg, briefly gaining the clinch Skovgaard hit his opponent in the mid-section with a heavy strike for the ribs that left Solberg gasping to fill his lungs before returning to the center of the cage much to the pleasure of the audience in attendance, these two fighters exchanged leg strike after leg strike with visible whelps developing on both warriors inside tights as the sound of cracking whips echoed around the arena with each proceeding strike.
 
During the second minute of the fight as the fan's were giving both fighters a standing ovation for the action on display center stage of the cage it was Solberg who went for a mighty right hand that missed and was immediately countered by a monstrous right hand from Skovgaard crashing Solberg to the canvas visibly rocking him and leading to another left hand that finished the job, an absolutely devastating knockout by Valentine Skovgaard that will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest knockouts in Aspire history.
 
Winner - Valentine Skovgaard by way of KO (Punch) : Fight Rating 56%

265+ : Escobar De Vega vs Nelson Muntz
15b18.jpg vs 18w4.jpg
  Age: 39                                   Age: 40
  Height: 192 cm                        Height: 185 cm
  Weight: 221 lbs                        Weight: 180 lbs
  Record: 25-10-1 (WWWLW)        Record: 43-12-1 (WWWLL)
 
With the greatest of pleasure we present to you the finals of the Old Dog For The Road tournament between Escobar De Vega and Nelson Muntz here at Aspire MMA, Escobar having lost via KO (Punch) in the very first round of the tournament went on to make a spectacular recovery with KO win's over Arne Riseman and Olof Orkidea in the very first round. Coming up against Avon Barksdale at the fourth event in the tournament it was not until late into the second round that Escober's crisp jab followed by a devastating cross rocked Barksdale quickly followed up by a right to the chin that sent him hurtling to the ground. Displaying his killer instinct Escobar followed his devestated opponent to the ground unloading strikes until the referee managed to separate the two men, following the event a challenge came from Nelson Muntz to finally settle the score.
 
Nelson took a diffrent path to this fight having secured his first round victory over Escobar he went on to face Marcel Clasie in a three round decision domination that was highlighted by the relentless pace Muntz had set leaving Clasie unable to answer back having gassed early into the second round. Following his win Nelson went on to fight Abed Nadir on the 25th of February 2017, narrowly loseing the first round having failed to defend a takedown and suffering the onslaught of ground and pound that followed Nelson dug deep and managed to keep the fight standing for the majority of the second round picking up crucial points. By the third and final round Nelson's commanding leg kicks had decimated Nadir's resolve and finally paved a way to victory for the Springfield native.
 
With $200,000 in viagra up for grabs for the winner you can be assured both men will coming into this fight ready to go hard. To follow all of the Old Dog action visit the following thread: http://www.mmatycoon...showtopic=57224
 
Fight:
Escobar starts off with a loaded right hand but Muntz displays fantastic reflexes by slipping past and responding with a nasty looking inside leg kick that echoed around the arena and was followed up by a series of strikes to Escobar's gut checking his resolve, not wanting to be outdone Escobar let everyone in attendance know he was not be under-estimated pulling out and landing a colossal head kick not many would of seen coming momentarily stunning Muntz who tried to retaliate with a high kick of his own but failed to land resulting in an all out standup slug fest with both fighters whaling on each other as the crowd in attendance raised to its feet in appreciation of these two veteran warriors giving their all, Muntz looking to decimate the body of Escobar while his opponent continued to look for power kicks that might lead to a finish.
 
Late into the first round Muntz feinted as Escobar raised his hands in defence and changed levels to secure  a beautiful takedown into Escobar's guard. Trying to control the action for the remainder of the bout despite Escobar's attempts to advance his position it was Muntz who had done enough to secure the nod from the judges.
 
Picking up where he left of Escobar once again looked aggressive as he searched for the ultimate power strike to put Muntz to sleep with but ever elusive Nelson Muntz had other ideas and went to work on Escobar's mid-section with both fighters looking absolutely exhausted it was Escobar who seemed to have taken the majority of the punishment so far with Muntz's exemplary striking defense and physical conditioning unprecedented for a man of his age giving him the slight advantage but nobody in the arena could argue that either man left anything behind in the cage as an all out brawl ensued stopping only briefly in the closing moments of the round as Escobar decided to try his look and successful took Muntz down into half guard and worked secure a kimura attempt that allowed Muntz to recover into full guard.
 
Muntz having glanced up at the clock understood it was only a short period of time he had to survive the position and chose to play very defensive for the remained of the round while Escobar continued to reign down and often miss his target with ground and pound, in the closing second of the round Escobar attempted to pass into half guard but Muntz was able to reverse the situation and secure the top position as the crowd loudly cheered him on peppering Escobar with shots of his own the close out the round.
 
In the final round of what has been a spectacular tournament pitting the very best the world has to offer in geriatric MMA it's safe to say that nobody on the entire card put more heart into his fight than these two men who proceeded to have an all out bell-to-bell standup war in the third round with Muntz utilising his unpredictable leg striking style to keep Escobar off-balance the majority of the round while Escobar proved to be an always-dangerous opponent hurting Muntz with several key strikes but this one went the distance and Muntz had comfortably established dominance in the face of greatness proving that he is by Unanimous Decision the NEW undisputed Old Dog For The Road tournament champion!

265lbs : Sendou Kitano vs Bubba Dee
14541174653906.gif vs 14528219849906.png
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 196 cm                        Height: 197 cm
  Weight: 252 lbs                        Weight: 270 lbs
  Record: 9-5-0 (LLWWW)        Record: 8-3-0 (LWLWW)
 
Once the kingpin of 265lbs the former champion Sendou Kitano lost his title at Just Bleed 24 on the 11th of February to current champion Huell Babineaux via KO in the very first round, looking to build back up he next faced former Strikeforce Union champion James Quinn Mcdonagh taking a loss to TKO (Punches) in the opening seconds of the bout due to what many consider a baffling result. Touted as one of the most promising young fighters on the roster Sendou Kitano is expected to claw his way back to the top of the division but Legion of Doom manager Ryan Maile has other ideas having put forward his fighter Bubba Dee as a potential road block to Kitano's plans.
 
Bubba Dee possess some of the most dangerous hands in the organisation with a legitimate single punch KO ability to his credit he proves to be a constant threat to his opponents with his explosive power and fantastic cardiovascular capacity his only career losses are to the very top level's of competition by decision, his chin unquestionable this warrior will look to derail Sendou Kitano's rise from the ashes. 
 
Fight:
Calling early on for Bubba to abandon a successful counter into the clinch it was clear Bubba's corner did not want to test Sendou's ample Muay Thai skills instructing him to remain on the outside and pick his shots the fruits were quickly realised as a crisp left hand left Sendou with a cut under his left eye that would go on to trouble him for the remained of the first round as Bubba continued to lay forward a barrage of single punch connections that left Kitano in a world of trouble. Seeking to return the fight to the clinch only to find it escaped moments later by Bubba this quickly became a game of cat and mouse with Bubba using his slight reach advantage to keep at optimal range while accurately picking apart the visibly wounded left eye area of Kitano leading to significant damage causing the referee some pause for thought at this time.
 
As if to say "Anything you can do I can do better" Sendoku left Bubba a receipt with a short sharp jab leaving a visible cut above his Bubba's left eye but it was clear that Sendou was going to have to change something in the intermittent round as Bubba comfortably took the nod from the judges in the first round.
 
Elusive is the way I would describe Sendou in the early goings of the second round checking leg kicks and responding to strikes with slippery effect avoiding all significant strikes thrown by Bubba and countering with his seasoned boxing acquired at a young age while training at the Forest Hill Gym in London, additionally the discipline learned from a year studying with the Kenjutsu masters of Japan was surely time well served as Sendou was able to completely negate Bubba in the standup despite failing to secure the clinch for the majority of the round. Visibly shaken by the events of the second round Bubba returned to his corner wondering what he would have to do to find his way back to his dominant display in the first round.
 
As both corners finished up work on the left eye's of the fighters it was Bubba who looked the worse of it with Sendoku's early cut having early coagulated to the point it was no longer impairing his vision while Bubba's less experienced corner seemed to struggle to get the problem under control, Sendou opened up with a counter right hand to a failed body shot and used his impressive speed to keep the action in his favour as he continued to punish Bubba with scathing low kicks and powerful looking single shots to the head leading to an additional damage to Bubba's eye, tempted to step in and call the fight the referee was constantly checking the vision of the grievously wounded fighter Bubba Dee as Sendou continued his unrelenting assault for the remained of the round.
 
Winner - Sendou Kitano by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 61%
 
 
 
170lbs : Bomb Com vs Chance Birmbaum
14744761778269.png vs 35w19.jpg
  Age: 24                                   Age: 24
  Height: 178 cm                        Height: 175 cm
  Weight: 175 lbs                        Weight: 176 lbs
  Record: 6-2-0 (LWWWW)        Record: 10-6-1 (LLLWW)
 
Both of the following combatants have one thing in common, the controversial figure Jack Stone. Chance Birmbaum was riding high following his 170lbs championship victory over Your Name Here back in November of 2016 but was quickly dethroned by Jack Stone losing via unanimous decision at Just Bleed 15, since then his fortunes have continued to slump with a return bout loss to Your Name Here via decision at Just Bleed 22 and a TKO (Strikes) loss to Ivan Gore at Just Bleed 25.5, tonight is a must-win situation if this warrior wants to return to the title picture anytime soon!
 
His opponent Bomb "Dot" Com is fresh off a controversial loss to Jack Stone via split decision at Just Bleed 27 following a five-fight win streak leading into the bout, a result that was highly contested at the time with calls to re-match at the earliest opportunity it was Jack Stone who decided to leave the organisation and pursue other opportunities leaving Bomb Com high and dry. Seeking his redemption Bomb Com was more than happy to accept an opportunity against former champion Chance Birmbuam with hopes a victory here tonight will bring him one step closer to his childhood dream of holding championship gold.
 
Fight:
Following a series of leg kegs from both fighters it was Chance that went in and secured the takedown but it was Bomb who had firm control of the situation even from the bottom holding Chance's head his tightly to mitigate the danger, warned by the referee that his pattering of ground and pound was not enough activity Chance was eventually stood back up and almost immediately the fight moved into the clinch resulting in Chance pulling guard and re-establishing ground control before attempting a triangle submission that Com managed to easily avoid.
 
Not content to let sleeping dogs lie Chance proceeded to stay active on the ground searching for numerous submission attempts that often looked like hitting the target but Bomb remaining cool under the pressure defended well while seeking to advance his position and stave off the BJJ of the former champion, having done enough to secure the ground Chance smiled as he returned to his corner.
 
Raising the intensity for the second round Bomb once again went to work on the legs of Chance before pushing the fight into the clinch and working extremely aggressively against Chance who once again looked for and secured a single leg takedown late into the first minute of the round but was quickly reversed by a nice sweep leading Bomb in the top position. Working from the bottom Chance once again put his brown belt to good use keeping Bomb ever defensive as he went for three more submission attempts but was eventually reset to the standup by a referee following a lack of action late into the third minute of the round, presumably due to exhaustion on the part of both fighters.
 
Looking drained at the start of the third round Chance took an undefended slap to the face and reacted by forcing the clinch looking to do some damage and get out before Bomb could respond but Bomb got the better of both exchanges and pursued his destructive intent for the remained of the ground landing hard hooks to the body and repeated shoulder strikes as he continued to stuff Chance's repeated takedown attempts, showing his dominance in the third and final round Bomb would land a massive head kick out of the blue that sent Birmbaum tumbling towards the canvas, not allowing his opponent a moment's respite Bomb followed his opponent down and secured the mount reigning down strikes until the referee was forced to step in.
 
Winner - Bomb Com by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 57%
 
 
 
145lbs : Peter Heart vs Aaron Rodgers
1w10.jpg vs 1w20.jpg
  Age: 23                                   Age: 23
  Height: 180 cm                        Height: 170 cm
  Weight: 155 lbs                        Weight: 157 lbs
  Record: 5-3-0 (LLWWW)        Record: 6-8-0 (LLWWL)
 
Peter Heart is truly one of the Aspire MMA greats having been here since the early inception of the organisation and always providing quality performances and often some of the most exciting finishes we have seen in the Aspire cage, having picked up recent losses to both Carl Kingston and Derui Pake he will be looking to get back to winning way's against his opponent tonight Aaron Rodger's.
 
Rodger's having lost to Rock Chuck at Just Bleed 26 on the 25th of February 2017 by unanimous decision know's that tonight is the time to draw on his 5 career (T)KO victories and return to finishing way's as he looks to avoid the judgement of his peers having lost seven of his previous fights via decision.
 
Fight:
Heavy handed Aaron Rodgers worked hard early with a vicious looking combination strike counter to a missed hook by Heart that seemed to hurt and continued to look for big power counter strikes that would hopefully distract consistent combatant Peter Heart from implementing his will on the fight, Heart responded with a body hook that seemed to take the wind out of Rodgers who scrambled to take the fight into the clinch using his notable strength to force the issue and began to seek out a takedown attempt to no avail.
 
Having successfully defend numerous takedown attempts it became clear Rodgers gas tank had taken a real hit and Hearts consistent body shots had done the intended damage by around the secound minute. Receiving a brutal looking shot to the eye socket that may very well of broken his orbital bone, theirs some real concern coming from his corner at this time and Heart has secured a takedown from the clinch securing the round in dominant fashion.
 
In-between rounds Rodgers corner confirmed his eye socket was hurt but not critical and sent him back up with instruction to take Hearts head off but it was once again his opponent who had the best of the following round sticking to his body shot based game-plan and sapping the very desire to fight from his waning victim with every shot, both in and out of the clinch Heart was able to get the better leading to a second round nod from the judges.
 
Early in the third round Rodgers was rocked by a crisp looking left hook but was able to stay in the fight feinting a shoulder and throwing a nice set of leg kicks to keep Heart at bay, knowing a finish would be required to pick up the victories Aaron Rodgers despite his clear exhaustion looked like a different fighter in the final round scoreing many successful strikes and putting Heart in danger on more than once occasion but unable to find the big strike he needed to secure a finish it was all made too easy for the judges on the night.
 
Winner - Peter Heart by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 43%

205lbs : Allen Boes vs Ray Seffu
37b19.jpg vs 8w8.jpg
  Age: 21                                   Age: 25
  Height: 192 cm                        Height: 191 cm
  Weight: 214 lbs                        Weight: 219 lbs
  Record: 5-4-0 (WWLLW)        Record: 9-4-0 (WLLLW)
 
Allen Boes first appeared at Just Bleed 2 back in April 2016 with a decision victory over Walter White Iv and went on to have many great wars within the Aspire MMA cage, coming directly of a two-fight win streak having avenged a previous loss to Nasko Steanov with a KO (Punches) win at Just Bleed 29 on the 18th of March 2017 looking good in the process many fan's expect Boes to take the fight to his opponent former Primal Fear fighter Ray Seffu. With nine career victories, five via decision and four career losses also via decision it's safe to say Seffu's style is one of tactical caution and Boes will have his work cut out for him tonight.
 
Fight:
As Boes came out of his corner you could tell from the look in his eyes he had evil intentions for Ray Seffu, ever the show man Boes opened up with a heavy hit and proceeded to taunt his opponent by audibly shouting "You're gunna get knocked out" to the roar of the live audience that Seffu responded to with a lighting quick leg kick before moving back to a safe distance, Boes continued to move forward searching for the clinch but settled for a stiff right hand that cracked Seffu in the side of the head to much applause from the crowd. Boes continued to press his opponent setting a furious pace with strike after strike that put Seffu on the back foot from the get-go.
 
Early into the second minute of the very first round following a solid period of dominate standup by Boes it was a massive uppercut that would crumble Seffu to the floor causing the referee to consider stopping the fight their and then however, Boes waved his opponent back to his feet allowing for the fight to continue, may believe had Boes followed him to the ground this one would be all over right now but Boes stuck to his plan and proceeded to cut Ray Seffu with a swift jab before pushing his opponent into the clinch to continue his round dominating display of striking excellence.
 
As the round came to a close another bellowing upper cut sent the people in attendance into a frenzy of excitement as Seffu was dropped to his knee's and Boes this time decided to unload all he had left in the tank for the finish.
 
Winner - Allen Boes by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 67%
 
 
 
155lbs: Ray Bundles vs Jack Wilder
4b20.jpg vs 1w16.jpg
  Age: 25                                   Age: 22
  Height: 175 cm                        Height: 170 cm
  Weight: 1170 lbs                        Weight: 167 lbs
  Record: 4-7-0 (LWLWL)        Record: 4-2-0 (LWWWW)
 
Known for his exceptional boxing and sublime superman style KO punch abilities Jack Wilder is a prospect at 155lbs to watch, a product of the Casino gym out of Las Vegas this young fighter has a caliber of Muay Thai way beyond his years and the heart of a champion, he will be no easy task for his opponent tonight journeyman Ray "Stack" Bundles who stylistically matches perfectly with Wilder while towering him in both height and age the 25 year old Bundles looks to make an impact on his Aspire debut at Wilders expense.
 
Fight:
Ray Bundles made no secret about his intentions ducking under a wild hook from Wilder and countering with a power shot to the head that failed to hit it's target leaving the audience in attendance with the impression this fight was likely to end early via KO if Bundles had anything to say about it. However, as it turned out Wilders presented a stylistic hard counter to what Bundles was looking for and was able to use his agility and speed to stay one step ahead of Bundles's loaded shots just enough of the time to stay one step ahead until a second minute miss-kick lead to a miss placed low kick by Bundles hitting Wilder directly in the penis to the collective gasps of the crowd.
 
Having taken a moment to recover Wilder was cheered by the audience as he returned to the fray but he never again seemed to be the same fighter, he had lot a step in his ability to defend the strikes levied at him by Bundles and it was noticeable that his opponent had noticed the drop in intensity. Bundles comfortably secured the round however, many in attendance seemed to think he should have had a point deducted for what some considered to be an intentional strike to Wilders genitals.
 
Sensing that Wilder was no longer the imminent threat he had been it was clear Bundles had switched up his game plan and looked now to picking his shots adding in his devastating knees and preferring to accurately assault Wilders head in and out of the clinch to score as many points as possible without putting in harms way. With Wilder on a clear defensive for the ensuing two rounds that followed it was much the same story as Bundles continued to use his ample reach advantage and the sheepish resolve of Wilder following his low-blow was enough for Bundles to edge out the decision much to the dismay of the thousands in attendance.
 
Winner - Ray Bundles by way of Unanimous Decision : Fight Rating 76%

Having competed previously at the Honour Fighting Championship exciting prospect Harry Duncan makes his Aspire debut tonight against BJJ black belt John "The Hangman" Ruth, it will be no surprise to anyone that Ruth will be looking to utilize his advanced submission skills to his advantage while Duncan is likely to pick his moments and keep the fight standing, this one come's down to whoever enforces his game plan with the best execution.
 
Fight:
From the very first bell Ruth was looking for the takedown attempt matching his levels perfectly to counter the initial aggression from Duncan who sprawled excellently to avoid the first attempt but was thrown off balance with a series of failed shots and received a counter takedown into his guard for his trouble, Ruth followed up with some ground and pound while wrestling based Duncan looked to use his pre-fight training with escapes at the Heart Cave out of Los Angeles to his advantage to no avail.
 
Ruth looked for an Americana but Duncan was able to defend well against the attempt and Ruth started to work in some elbows as he continued his ground and pound onslaught well into the rest of the round with Duncan suffering a cut to a beautiful strike from the top position by Ruth forcing Duncan to dig deep and successfully land a nice scissor sweep into Ruth's guard but was stalled by the exemplary head control Ruth displayed drawing out the round to a close for a clear nod to the dominate John Ruth.
 
Coming out for the second round Duncan immediately attempted to take the fight into the clinch but was countered with a takedown into side control, from this point forward Ruth snapped his opponents head back repeatedly with thunderous ground and pound until finally in the second minute of the match Duncan was rocked and finished by one of the many furious heavy-handed shots.
 
Winner - John Ruth by way of TKO (Strikes) : Fight Rating 51%
