The Klamath County Fairgrounds came alive as Arena Wars - Battlefield rolled into town. The evening was filled with a large spirited crowd and competitors that came to fight. The matches were quick but competitors came to do battle.
The co-main event featured a battle between two tough as nails women, Pony Howard vs Charlie Wright. Both women fought hard but Wright was able to keep her aggression on Howard throughout the battle. Wright landed a series of heavy right hand blows to the head of Howard. Causing the referee to call the match with a TKO victory to Wright.
The main event of the night had the vacant 170lb State Title on the line between Johnny Jackson and Mike Sandoe. Both men came out aggressive out of the gate landing equal blows. Ultimately, the fight landed on the mat with both competitors wrestling and grappling on each other. Sandoe wrapped Jackson up with a Rear Naked Choke combined with his legs cinched around Jackson's torso. Jackson used his free legs to climb the cage wall in an attempt to roll Sandoe but to no avail. Moments later Jackson tapped to Sandoe's RNC hold.
Sandoe became the new champ of the 170lb State Title.
A week ago 16 fights were on the card, however due to life and circumstances only nine fights were listed when the show started. Unfortunately, the heated and vocal crowd was only able to watch eight fights. As fighter Sean Talmadge was unable to compete due his inability to complete a UA before the fight. In that match competitor Gene Cairo was declared victor by DQ.
Full results from the card are below.
