Aaron Coleman defended his FEX Light Heavyweight Championship, by defeating Cory Inman on Saturday night. Coleman caught an Inman kick in the first round and took down his opponent, shortly after the fighters returned to their feet. Coleman once again took Inman down, this time passing to mount, securing him the first round. In the second, Coleman secured another takedown of Inman and this time finished him with a kimura. Coleman (Karate USA in Charleston, IL) executed a smart game plan, using head movement and footwork combined with takedowns, which neutralized the reach advantage that Inman possessed. Coleman runs his undefeated record to 7-0 and awaits on his next challenge!
In the Bantamweight Championship fight Eric Ramos wasted no time in disposing of his opponent. Ramos worked quickly to get Jason Crose's back and finished the fight just 1:24 into the first round to become the new Fire Extreme Fighting Bantamweight Champion! Congratulations to Eric Ramos!
In the heavyweight number one contender match, Chris Picker defeated Travis Brooks. As the two fighter were looking to exchange, Brooks stepped back and stepped on the wall of the cage, which may have caused an injury. As Brooks looked to regain his footing, Picker rushed in clinched and proceeded to hurl Brooks across the cage to the canvas. Picker followed up with strikes, causing special guest referee Jeremy Horn to stop the contest, just 33 seconds into the fight. Picker now looks to challenge for the title, but it won't be this simple with champion Danny Oikion. This is a fight you won't want to miss.
