Fearless Combat League - March 16th Results
The Machinist Hall in Bridgeton was home to the inaugural show from Fearless Combat League. An energetic crowd filled the venue for 12 fights that included Muay Thai, MMA, and Women's MMA.
In the main event "Bad News" Bo Kunz battled Shawn Tepen an Independent fighter from the area. Tepen looked much bigger than Kunz and put his size advantage to good use as he was able to control much of the action. Kunz was forced to work from his back from most of the fight, nearly ending it with a guillotine in the second round. In the end the judges gave the fight to Tepen and crowned him the new FCL light heavyweight champion.
Joe Roye came out strong in his fight with Johnny Cox working a triangle for the better part of the first. Roye returned to the second with a lot of momentum, but was forced to tap after his initial takedown landed him him Cox's guillotine. Cox sent his fans into orbit pulling victory from what looked like certain defeat.
