Team USA sweeps Ireland

174672_378882218796889_1646939795_nMMA Sport Federation's Team USA vs Ireland took place at the Kane County Fairgrounds, on St. Patrick's Day. Eleven amateur fights were scheduled for the evening, the last three pitting Team Usa vs Team Ireland. Team USA completed the clean sweep against the Irish in impressive fashion, which delighted the crowd. A bonus fight took place, and was one of the best fights of the night. Frank Sloan (17-2), was brought out to the cage for an announcement, to explain the difficulties in finding Sloan an opponent. The Combat-Do's Jose Mariscal heard the announcement in the back, and decided he would be happy to face Sloan. Mariscal was giving up some size, as he typically fights at a lower weight class. One of the reasons I love this sport is, just by looking at the size of the two competitors, you wouldn't have thought this fight would of made it out of the first round. The fans were treated with 3 rounds of exciting MMA action! Sloan defeated Mariscal by unanimous decision, but I think Mariscal may have picked up a building full of fans for taking the fight. I would like to commend Combat-Do and Jose Mariscal for stepping up, and taking a fight against a tough opponent!
