ShoXC from Table Mountain Casino Results & Play-by-Play

by:  Jack Bratcher

The ShoXC card that took place in Friant, California at the Table Mountain Casino, aired live tonight on Showtime. Here’s the official PRO MMA play-by-play and results. It was a really good show; EliteXC and Showtime have much to be proud of with tonight’s fights. Here’s how things went down:

Keith Berry vs. Ray Lizama
Berry works with Robert Drysdale on his Jiu Jitsu at Xtreme Couture in Vegas.
Rd.1 – A right hand by Lizama staggers Berry. Then Lizama lands another less powerful shot then another right hand on the chin. Berry recovers nicely. Overhand right lands by Berry. Berry connects again. Berry looking for the plum. Big right hand puts Lizama to the mat. Berry jumps on his back and sinks in the choke. Lizama peels it off and Berry lets go. Berry lets him up. Big flurry from Lizama. Lizama lands a few hard shots that knocks out Berry’s mouthpiece. Berry still coming forward swinging for the fences. Lizama still landing a few here and there. Bell sounds.
Ref tries to put the mouthpiece back in the wrong fighter’s mouth. LOL This is a very good, very exciting fight. Truthfully, I was not expecting this much action.
