Central Illinois Throwdown took place last night at the East Peoria Event Center. Twenty-five bouts were scheduled for the night, three of them being for title belts. After each bout, medals were awarded to each fighter, which I thought was a nice touch by the promotion. Easter seals was present at the event running a 50/50 raffle, in which the winner donated his share of over $700, back to Easter Seals. Great job to the promotion for running a smooth event and I thought it was awesome that they rewarded all the fighters for their efforts!
In the lightweight title bout, Kelly Madden dropped Colton Creason with a beautiful left hook. Madden followed up quickly with strikes, knocking out his opponent in the first round, to capture the East Peoria Lightweight Championship! Madden remains unbeaten and appears headed for big things in the world of MMA.
The welterweight title was next, pitting Colton Martin squaring off with Randy Tucker. Martin came out landing punches before taking his opponent's back before transitioning nicely to the armbar, getting the tapout. Colton Martin is the new Welterweight Champion!
The Main Event was for the Featherweight Championship. Nick Porter (picture to left) just took a little over a minute to defeat his opponent, Shawn Johnson. Porter came out banging before the fight went to the ground where Porter sunk in the armbar. A quick impressive victory for Nick Porter to cap off an action packed night of mma action!
