Supreme Promotions moved their show from Joliet to Orland Park and the results where the same. Another packed house with another aqmazing card with 16 fights put together by Mike Aguirre. There were many great fights that took place. In the Main Event, Mike Reid delivered a dominant performance in knocking out Robert Farabaugh. It took Reid just 25 seconds to land a devastating headkick that sent Farabaugh to the canvas. Reid seems to be unstoppable and seems to make it look quite easy, but we all know it's not that simple. It just shows the hours of dedication that he has applied to honing his craft. It truly is scary to think of what he has accomplished at his age and how much better he will become. I don't hear a lot of people saying that they want the next crack at Mike Reid.
Josh Streacker defended his Supreme Promotions Welterweight Title against Mike Szatkowski. Streacker caught Szatkowski with a heavy right hand, as he was coming forward, sending Szatkowski to the mat. Streacker moved in for the finish but it was already over. Great win for Streacker against a tough opponent. Streacker gets better with every performance and it's intriguing to see who Mike Aguirre finds next to face him.
One of my favorite bouts of the night was a matchup between two young and upcoming fighters. Hybrid Martial Arts fighter Max Perez would be facing Vik Dixit from Counterstrike MMA. Perez is 19 years old and was victorious in his one prior bout. Dixit was making his debut at just 18 years of age. The quality of this fight was highly entertaining with Perez receiving the unanimous decision victory. I wouldn't be surprised to see either one of these fighters getting title shots later down the road. Of course they need to stay focused and work hard, but they are well on their way.
Mike Demakes was impressive in his bout with the experienced Eugene Anthony. Demakes was able to secure an armbar just 48 second into the first round.
There were two announcements made with future title implications. Moremma correspondent Chuck Giles will be facing Anthony Ferro for the 125 pound championship. Both of these fighters are experienced with Pro aspirations and this will be a good test for both of them.
The second announced title fight will be a light heavyweight fight between Ron Prindle and Billie Jessie. Both of these fighters like to stand up and throw hands, so it will surely be an entertaining fight to watch.
