Results – Caged Madness 30

While we were not in attendance at the Tadmor Shrine in Akron, Ohio for Caged Madness we do have the results. According to our source and good friends over at GatewayMMA, it was “Another great night of fights.” The event, Caged Madness 30, was capped off with a professional heavyweight bout between Jeremy Linville and Curt Lemmon.

Just after a minute in the second round, Lemmon was able to earn the referee stoppage to not only pickup his first professional title but also remain undefeated. We were able to obtain a copy of his fight thanks to Chris Lemmon. You can watch his fight in it’s entirety below.

MFS X

Free Entry To MFS X

What!? Yes, you did read that correctly. You can get free entry into the upcoming Midwest Fight Series (MFS) show that takes place on August 15th at 8 Seconds Saloon. However, there is one small catch. You’re probably thinking, of course there is a catch, nothing is free in this world. Well, you are right about the latter part, there is nothing free but you can still gain entry without paying if you are a fighter.

Keith Palmer, an official with MFS, took to the “Real Indiana MMA” group on Facebook with the following message, “MFS has made the decision to allow all currently licensed pros into our events for free. Show your pro ID at the door, and you won’t need to purchase a ticket.” While someone pointed out that ID’s are no longer being issued, they will find a way to make it work.


Indiana promoter and matchmaker get into scuffle at ECC

Drama

Drama Alert

This is really a WTF kind of moment. Local mixed martial arts is a tough business with a lot of characters. Many personalities clash as opinions often differ. I will preface this piece with I was not at ECC but Juan Valle was.  I don’t know Cody Huggins or Chas Bowling personally. I do know that what happened was strange and rare.

Extreme Combat Challenge took place last night in Indianapolis but long before the doors opened a war of words went down between Hook-N-Shoot matchmaker Cody Huggins and ECC promoter Chas Bowling. In fact, a 264 comment thread was posted on Facebook  with quite a bit of back and forth between Bowling and Huggins about matchups, Indiana MMA and other hot topics. Huggins made it known early that he was going to be at the event supporting a friend.
