GoFightLive had officially DIED….
Jeff Monson vs. John Brown
The broadcast for this fight went out. It turned out to be a split decision victory for Monson. Evidently, he got beat up pretty bad, said it was a tough fight, as he has been in jail (I think he said) and missed out on some training.
Houston Alexander vs. Joey Beltran
Round 1 – They introduced Houston Alexander twice. And the announcer did a ripoff of the “Buffer 360”. No touch of hands, Houston didn’t want it. Houston with a leg kick, then a knee from the clinch. Beltran ties Houston up, looking for a takedown. Beltran has a single leg, holding onto it. He lets go of the leg momentarily as Houston pounds his ears, and defends. Ref separates them. Houston swings big. Beltran throws a punch then clinches up looking for the double, he gets it and puts Houston on his back, lands in half guard. Beltran lands some elbows. Beltran in full control of this fight. Houston getting busted up bad from the ground and pound. He’s eating punches and elbows repeatedly. All this beating from half guard. Huge left hands to Houston’s jaw. Beltran’s coach says, “it’s just like heavy bag training” basically saying Houston has nothing. Beltran postures up with big shots, Bell sounds and Houston wobbly getting to his feet. I score it 10-9 for Beltran (could be 10-8).
Round 2 – Houston seems to be fighting just like he fought Kimbo, with leg kicks and moving side to side. Houston’s eye is almost swollen shut. Houston punches but gets caught in the clinch then put back down on his back. Same position as Beltran had in round one. It should be noted Houston is quite a bit lighter. He came in at 209 and Beltran came in at 225. Beltran’s coach said Houston has no guard and to just sit up and punch. Beltran stands up and starts pounding. Houston pushes him back with his feet momentarily and tries to block his strikes but he’s eating big elbows and punches.Beltran stands up, moves to side control. Houston gives up his back, he turtles up as Beltran swings away. Houston’s face is a bloody mess. That’s it the ref stops it.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Joey Beltran def. Houston Alexander TKO (strikes) Rd 2 (3:49)

Round 1 – The announcer just called him Brad Imes. What a tard. Left hand scores for Davis with a jab. Brian looking good with his footwork, goes for a flying knee but gets taken down. Davis in half guard, landing some shots, the ref steps in and stops it.
