Combat Corner Professionals Dominate at RFA 8

Resurrection Fighting Alliance brought some of the most exciting young MMA talent to The Rave’s Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee for RFA8 Pettis vs. Pegg. The house was packed with the familiar faces of Milwaukee’s MMA fans and fighters on a night that would be unforgettable.

In the first bout of the main card Combat Corner Professional Zak Ottow of Pura Vida Jiu Jitsu was set to take on Matt Gauthier in a welterweight bout that Ottow made short work of. Early on they traded blows on their feet but when the opportunity came for Ottow to get the fight to the ground it was clear that his Jiu Jitsu skills were far superior and at 3:07 of the very first round Ottow forced Gauthier to tap with an arm triangle.

Later in the evening Combat Corner Professional Mike “Biggie” Rhodes of Roufusport was set to take on Benjamin Smith in a welterweight match up. After losing his last bout in the RFA cage Rhodes seemed determined to not make the same mistakes and made it a very short night for Smith. At just: 51 seconds of the very first round as Smith stepped in to throw a punch Rhodes unloaded a vicious counter that dropped Smith to the mat. Much like a lion on his prey Rhodes jumped on top and started landing some final blows before the referee stopped the match.

 

In the main event of the evening Combat Corner Professional Sergio “The Phenom” Pettis was set to face Dillard Pegg for the RFA  flyweight title. Pegg came out looking to stand and bang with Pettis throwing kicks and punches but apparently failed to realize that when the fight is standing that’s when young Sergio Pettis shines. Every shot that Pegg threw Pettis would either dodge or counter with a harder blow.  As Pegg looked to throw a looping left hook Pettis threw a perfect counter a straight right that landed clean to the jaw of Pegg dropping him to the mat a few hammer fists later the referee stepped in to stop the match crowning Sergio Pettis the RFA flyweight champion at :51 f the very first round.
