Local MMA Update 3/1/2013 Edition

There has been lots of mma stars from New England displaying their skills in the bigger shows lately  I wanted to do a quick article to keep you all up to date so we don't all get lost.  Last night, in Bellator,  Brennan Ward fought Yair Moguel and won the fight with a rear naked choke in just 57 seconds in round 1.  This was a great win for Brennan who was caught in a slick armbar submission very quickly just a few week ago for Bellator.  Also that night Katie Merrill fought Holly Holm.  Now I didn't get to watch the fight but Holly ended up winning via tko strikes at 3:02 in round 2.  I first saw Katie grapple Sarah Payant at a PFC and she is a nasty grappler that comes out of Wai Kru.  Keep your head up Katie, I know you will bounce back.  Also this weekend for CFA this Saturday night Peggy Morgan takes on Revelina Berto.  Peggy comes into this fight with a 1-0 record and Revelina is 3-0.  I know she is ready for the challenge and to put on a show.  We will keep you all posted on that one.  Earlier this week Karo Parisian signed on to fight Rick Hawn on the April 4th Bellator.  Then Bellator also announced Bombsquad's Shabulat Shamhalaev will fight Pat Curran also on the April 4th card.  Lastly, on The Ultimate Fighter next Tuesday Jimmy Quinlan will be fighting a tough striker Clint Hester.  We will all be rooting for you Jimmy! I don't know about you all but I am loving Bellator with all the local signings from New England.  I can't wait to go to my first Bellator when they invade Maine and congrats to all the local fighters on their MMA progression!
