Josh Haynes defeats Sean Salmon at A Night of Combat II

UFC veterans Josh Haynes and Sean Salmon met tonight at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas at “A Night of Combat II”.

Salmon was a late replacement for Steve Byrnes. This was one of the most anticipated fights on the card due to the style match-ups and it turned out to be a great showing by both fighters.

Haynes showed marked improvement since his TUF days and his time with Xtreme Couture is clearly paying off.  Salmon showed great heart and displayed some of the top-level wrestling he is known for.

You will be able to watch this fight and the entire Night of Combat card Saturday Oct.18 on HDNet. Until then here are the night’s results and how the action went down:
