ASAP Fight League 3: Sleeper Card of the Summer

Every once in a while there happens to be a card that gives a strong impression on paper, but that blows the roof right off the venue.  I'm happy to say that Peter Rogers Jr. and Sr. surprised us at WesternMassMMA.com with such a card.  While every other Combat Sports Media blog was attending the Cage Titans event in Plymouth, MA we at WMMMA.com split up to cover both events.  Huge thanks to our team for being so versatile.  Todd Selva kept the record straight in Uncasville, CT in the heart of the Mohegan Tribe's state of the art facility Mohegan Sun Casino.  I was there providing a video record of the event and though we weren't able to get a stable stream out to GFL.tv for the fans at home we did provide them with the video afterward.

Round 1: Gworz gets the takedown and looks to pass guard.  They scramble back to their feet.  They go back to the ground and Gworz passes to side control and then to mount.  Holmes sweeps and looks to advance position.  Now Gworz is back up in full mount.  It's a good back and forth battle for position.  Holmes sweeps and looks to pass guard now.  Holmes looks for a guillotine but Gworz defends well.  Its Holmes in mount now.  Gworz with a nice sweep into guard.  He passes and gets back to full mount.  He Sets up a nice mounted armbar for the tap.  A nice display of solid jui jitsu skills.

CAGE TITANS 30 8/27/2016 LIVE REVIEW



After a quick stop at Burger King for a whopperito we made it to the venue.  There was a bunch of traffic in Plymouth due to a Waterfront event which I hear is the biggest event in Plymouth all year.  I disagree, I think Cage Titans is the biggest events in Plymouth!  Titans has a stacked card of 21 fights for the night so guaranteed everyone in attendance will get their moneys worth.  Before the show started Cage Titans did an awesome tribute to Devin Carrier, a young local up and coming fighter who recently passed away.  They had a tribute video with his walkout song by Tupac and great photos of his fight career.  You may be gone but you won't be forgotten Devin.  Harry Jones is the host for the night and did an excellent job at the National Anthem.  Follow along as we recap the night.
