WFC Delivers Action Packed Night of MMA!
World Fighting Championships made a splash with its Southern Nevada debut show held on Saturday January 19th. The WFC put on a stellar show that featured both Amateur and Professional Mixed Martial Arts match ups at the sold out AVI Convention Center in Laughlin Nevada. Headlined by Roman Isbell VS. Rudy Morales, the split ammy/pro format proved to be a strong combo that delivered action from start to finish. Stand out performances by Larry Mir, Gabriel Paleyo and every winner on the Amateur undercard lead to an incredible Main and Co-Main Event.
Kurt Crum and Gil Guardado may have quite possible put on the most entertaining one round fight of all time. It's a must see back and forth battle that saw both fighters give 100% from bell to bell. Crum showed great heart and an even greater chin in his showdown with Guardado that lead to a doctor stoppage after the first round. Crum may have lost his professional debut, but he won much more . . . respect. If you have a chance to catch either Guardado or Crum on an upcoming WFC card, you've got to check them out.
Rudy Morales and Roman Isbell put on a tremendous effort in their Main Event showdown and gave Crum vs. Guardado a good run for the money for fight of the night. Morales and Isbell were very closely matched and battled back and forth for the full three rounds. Chants of "Rudy, Rudy, Rudy" mixed with chants of "Roman, Roman, Roman" as the crowd raised to its feet in a Main Event that truly lived up to its billing. Roman Isbell eked out a close Unanimous Decision win and looks to return to the WFC soon. Both fighters showed great class and sportsmanship as they joined the professional ranks.
