Lauzon And McMasters Shine In WCF Debut

Courtesy of World Championship Fighting:

World Championship Fighting’s inaugural event was a HUGE success and the crowd was buzzing all the way to the parking lot after the show. In what was an incredibly stacked fight card, the crowd saw just about everything you could ever hope to see at a Mixed Martial Arts event. The night was full of highlight reel knockouts, technical grappling displays, submission attempts and all out slugfests. The crowd, a sellout 2200 fans, was anxious to see a great night of MMA action and was treated to just that.

In one of the most anticipated fights of the night, UFC veteran Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon came out like a ball of lighting landing a ferocious right hand which sent Wayne Harnois crashing to the canvas. Lauzon quickly followed up with punches to the head of his opponent to earn a 14 second TKO victory. After the stoppage Lauzon climbed the ropes and performed a high intensity back flip which further excited the crowd.

In the night’s co-main event, Bobby McMasters and Bobby Dias put on what was easily the fight of the night. The first two rounds saw an absolute grappling clinic from both fighters with each fighter reversing each other and constantly going for submissions. After two rounds of fighting, the bout was ruled a draw and therefore went to a third and deciding overtime round. The overtime round was once again very close until McMasters landed a crushing left hand which ended the night for Dias. The nights full results are below:

Greg Sterns def. Mike Deleo by decision.
