Pittsburgh Challenge Series 2: Post-Fight

Pittsburgh Challenge Series 2 Knuckle dragger MagazineThe team at Pinnacle Fighting Championships put on a great show for yet another packed house of fans as they hosted the Pittsburgh Challenge Series 2 at the Iceoplex in Cannonsburg, PA.

It was an especially festive atmosphere…mainly because we were without the antics of our favorite little oompa loompa, Athletic Commissioner Greg Serb. Serb, we love you (ish)

The more I attend these promotions, the more I see the tight-knit community of fighters, promoters, and fans.

Fans are very loyal to their favorite fighters. At anywhere from 30-50 a ticket and more, to have a standing room only shows a lot of progress for the sport in general.

It was nice to hear the fighters thanking the fans for their support. Unlike all of the watered down superstars who have millions in the bank and could give less than two shits about their fans, local mma fans actually make the promotion. Without them, it would be a backyard fight waiting to be featured on YouTube.

Gotta love the fans, just dismiss all of the random things they scream, like “full mount!” when they’re standing up. Ermm, ok  guy…I can at least admire your passion for yelling.

What a lot of people don’t know is that the fighters are the biggest vehicle for ticket sales. Not only do they have to prepare for battle, they also have to market the show, create a buzz, and put butts in the seats. It’s an admirable task they take on, considering I have a nervous breakdown when my partner asks me to “live tweet” while trying to research for my article.

Anyway, let’s get to the action.

The amateurs were a little dicey. One fight I can only describe as an extended three-round face off.  Thankfully, the pros were a bit more entertaining.

I will say this, whoever the extremely large man was to the right of me that resembles a much more fit Steven Seagal, I couldn’t stop looking  your way as you calmly directed your fighters during each match.

You sir, are awesome.

Kahma Worthy vs. Jason Willett

Khama Worthy stepped into the ring against Jason “The Whip” Willett for a match that would prove to be a complete decimation for one. Worthy, who won with a unanimous decision, was lighting quick and tuned up Willett with kicks, punches, and pretty much any other move he wanted to execute.

Willett,who took the fight on ten days notice, and after he fought  two weeks prior, just could not find his game. As a result, he took a litany of punishment. After the fight Willett said, “I tried to beat him at his game. I regret not taking enough chances.”

Reggie Merriweather vs. Bob Tipinski

In the controversy fight of the night, Reggie Merriweather lit up “What about” Bob Tipinski while they were on the ground, knocking him out for a brief second. The ref called the fight as soon as he saw him go Pacquiao.Tipinski argued, the crowd booed, and that’s the end of the fight.

It’s normal for a fighter that has his clocked cleaned to argue with the judge for stopping the fight. Fighters want to fight, duh, but it’s the ref’s job to protect them from harm, and that’s what he did. Oh yeah, and I found five dollars…Now it’s a cool story.

Mark Cherico vs. Billy Vaughan

Mark Cherico, who has been the target of major criticism for not fighting anyone with any talent to pad his record, kind of shut everyone up with an impressive win in the first round via arm bar against a very competent opponent, Billy Vaughan. Vaughan, who had a pretty good stand up game, went toe-to-toe with Cherico, and even caught him in a Guillotine that looked a tad menacing until Cherico wriggled out.

Cherico was springy on his feet, he punched with authority and showed some great ground defense. When the opportunity presented itself, he pounced on the armbar. 3…2…1…Win. And here come the glasses and tongue.

In other pro fight news of the night

Anthony Durnell won by unanimous decision against  Kyle Rozewski

Jason Cardillo won via submission against Tony Parker

Thanks to our partners Supplement Central and PA National Guard for all of your support! We couldn’t do any of this without you…Well, we could, except it would be me writing in underwear, instead of pants.

Is Bigger and Longer Really Better When it Comes to Sex?

A few days ago I found myself in the most unbearably long line at Walmart.
