After years of fighting the laws in the state of Maryland, Shogun Fights organizer and former MMA competitor, John Rallo, is bringing the excitement of professional MMA and all of its loyal fans to the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore on Oct. 24, 2009, at 7:00 p.m.
In May of 2008, Governor Martin O’Malley signed a bill legalizing MMA in Maryland with the full support of the Maryland State Athletic Commission.
PRO MMA (promma.info) was on hand live at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia Saturday night to cover ULTIMATE WARRIOR CHALLENGE: MAN ‘O’ WAR. With a total of nine fights in all, including a UWC Bantamweight Title Fight and a highly anticipated female MMA bout, it was full night of high level mixed martial arts action.
Mike Easton vs. Justin Robbins – UWC Bantamweight Title Fight
It was not against his original opponent, but Mike Easton still had little trouble troubling handling HIT Squad fighter Justin Robbins. The two fighters cautiously traded leg kicks for two rounds, before they ended up on the ground in the third. Once off the ground, with Easton in guard, Robbins tried to sweep but got caught in a tight guillotine choke. Robbins tapped and the fight was stopped at the 4:44 mark of the third round.
