In the end Ian King( 7-2) received a unanimous decision victory and becomes the new, Checkmate Entertainment, Bantam Weight Champion.
In the Featherweight division, Abdul Kamara of Gladiator MMA looked to defend his title against Performance Martial Arts Academy’s Jesus “Chuy” Lara. In another 5 round battle, Lara was able to impose his game plan to perfection, Controlling all 5 rounds and delivering punishment to Kamara from every position. By the end of the fight the entire arena was chanting “CHUY! CHUY!” as his hand was raised with a 50-45 unanimous decision victory. Jesus Lara (6-2) is the new Featherweight Champion at “Battle in the Burg”.
Also on the card representing Performance Martial Arts Academy was Eddie Baitey (2-1), who was in the running for a fight of the night performance with his battle against Impact’s Joey Dursee (4-3). Unfortunatey Baitey was on the wrong side of a razor-thin split-decision, but he also showed why he should be taken as a serious threat in the lightweight division.
