UWC 7 – Redemption
Mike Easton (7-1) vs. Chase Beebe (12-4)

A lot of people are excited about Mike Easton, because he has all the physical tools. He is also a very skilled grappler with dynamite knees in the clinch. However, he is not going to be able to deal with Chase Beebe’s wrestling game. Easton has ended up on the bottom in his last few fights, but against Beebe he will be stuck down there and punished. If Beebe avoided being caught by Rani Yahya, then he came avoid Easton’s ground game. Five-round bantamweight fights are always a good show.
Pick = Chase Beebe

UWC announces landmark 125-pound title fight

The Ultimate Warrior Challenge recently announced that John Dodson and Pat Runez would fight for the promotion’s inaugural flyweight title.

The Washington, DC based organization has been one of the most progressive companies when it comes to promoting the flyweight division. The UWC first featured the weight class in Feb. 2009, and on all their shows since.

John Dodson is a veteran of the Tapout reality show, and holds a 8-4 record in MMA. Due to his slight size the Greg Jackson product has often been forced to fight up in weight. This was the case in his UWC as he fought to a decision with current bantamweight champion Mike Easton. Despite controlling the fight with strikes the judges awarded the fight to Easton. Since then Dodson has gone 2-0 with impressive victories over flyweights Jose Villirisco and Jose Lujan.
