Don’t underestimate Rob Hanna (4-0). Just don’t.

When the Dayton native was knocked down in his last bout against Joey Holt (3-2) early in the first round at Pinnacle FC 7 in March, many figured that monstrous shot would be the beginning of the end for Hanna. The end of his night via knockout, and the end of his undefeated record and overall nine-fight winning streak.

Talk about another great event at the Tadmor Shrine Center over the weekend. Explosive Fight Promotions hosted Caged Madness 31 at the Akron, Ohio venue. It was a great turnout according to one official with the organization.

One of the highlights from the event was undefeated amateur fighter Adli Edwards. He picked up the first round stoppage over his opponent Donnie Scott. The win moves Edwards to 4-0 overall- an impressive feat for the young amateur. The Columbus, Ohio resident’s future looks bright.

Ring of Combat 49

New York (August 19, 2014) - Lou Neglia’s professional mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion Ring of Combat returns to the world-famous Tropicana Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey onSeptember 19th with a stacked, 14-bout fight card, featuring 4 title fights!

ROC 49 was originally scheduled with 5 title fights but that changed this past weekend as ROC lightweight champ, Chris Wade, received the call that all professional MMA fighters dream of. Wade, who was already contractually obligated to defend his title at ROC 49, was asked to compete on the UFC 177: Dillashaw Barao card by UFC matchmakers. Seeing the possible contract dilemma at hand, Wade’s team called Lou Neglia to give him the news.


Jeff Hobbs joins BluegrassMMA Live tonight at 9 p.m. ET

Episode 186

Episode 186

Tonight we celebrate our 186th episode of BluegrassMMA Live. With a slow weekend ahead we’ve invited our good pal Jeff Hobbs to return to the program. Jeff heads out to South Dakota with Luke Sanders for Resurrection Fighting Alliance 17 this Friday night. Since Luke is cutting weight we thought we’d chat with Jeff about what he expects out of the fight.

Jeff has been around the MMA scene way longer than we have. He has helped fighters with sponsors, set up fights, worked with promotions and is even a certified official. For the last couple of years I would see Jeff at XFC events as he would be the fight coordinator on nights of the event and he started helping on the media side of things as well. XFC hasn’t had an event on US soil since November. They are thriving in Brazil but many signed fighters have been waiting for fights for awhile now. Several key fighters to the company have recently been released to pursue other options. Scott Holtzman, Stephanie Eggink and Joby Sanchez have all been released and signed elsewhere. Jeff has agreed to give us his perspective on what has happened inside the company.
