  • Lenny Nelson and Tyler Stinson Battle for C3 Fights Welterweight Title in December

    Fight news has been relatively nonexistent for Unified Martial Arts welterweight Lenny Nelson after an injury canceled his anticipated rematch with Andrew Trace at Madtown Throwdown 28 earlier this year. But how quickly things can change. According to UMA coach Mike Biddle, "Smash" has agreed to face Strikeforce veteran Tyler Stinson at C3 Fights: "Armageddon 2012" in Newkirk, Oklahoma on December 1.

  • Wisconsin Weekend Recap: Glenn Cruises, Meerschaert Falters, Schafer Submits Decorah, and Amateurs Have Mixed Success

    It was a busy weekend for a number of fighters from Wisconsin as Roufusport prospects Rick Glenn and Gerald Meerschaert competed at the Score Fighting Series 6 in Canada, Eric Schafer tangled with Demian Decorah, and a slew of others competed around the Midwest. Featherweights around the country need to take notice of Rick Glenn. The Roufusport featherweight looked better than ever on Friday night in Ontario as he earned a decisive stoppage over Lyndon Whitlock in the third round at Score Fighting Seires 6. The victory was Glenn's fifth in a row and raised his unbeaten streak to double digits. Since making the move to train in Milwaukee, "The Gladiator" has emerged as one of...
  • Rick Glenn Looks to Continue Rapid Ascent Against Lyndon Whitlock at Score Fighting Series 6 on AXS TV

    Outside of the UFC and Bellator, one is hard-pressed to find a hotter featherweight than Rick Glenn. Unbeaten over his last nine fights, "The Gladiator" has put his name directly on the radar of matchmakers everywhere and will look to keep the trend going tomorrow in Canada. Squaring off against Lyndon Whitlock as one of the headlining bouts at the Score Fighting Series 6, Glenn has a golden opportunity to assert himself as one of the world's most promising 145-pound prospects live on AXS TV. "I'm really excited to fight in front of all those people and show what I can do," Glenn told US Combat Sports. "I'm looking to stop him."
  • Gerald Meerschaert Set to Showcase Abilities Against Sergej Juskevic at Score Fighting Series 6 on National Television

    Over the past few years Wisconsin has played host to some of the brightest welterweight mixed martial arts prospects throughout the local scene. Sam Alvey, Andrew Trace, and Lenny Nelson have been just a few to make a name. But perhaps none has been more impressive than Gerald Meerschaert. Still two months shy of his 25th birthday, "The Machine" has already amassed a formidable 15-5 record, earned Wisconsin's Fighter of the Year award in 2010, and holds victories over notable opponents such as Alvey, Ron Faircloth, and Dallas O'Malley. Now fully immersed as a member of the Roufusport team, Meerschaert is poised for the most important scrap of his young career on Friday ...

  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: The Fart Heard Around The World

    So this week was episode five "The Empire (of Carwin) Strikes Back" and it really had no lack of action. The episode started with a brief overview of how last weeks fight went with Julian explaining how he feels right now, and to his credit he really was upset that he lost. Everyone in the house kind of overlooked him as being a threat but he did some real damage to Bristol and was truly shook up that he lost. Then Flash Forward another day it has Julian getting really upset with Secor. When you take a hot head like Julian and put him in a house with a mouth like Secor you know it will get Rough, and this episode was just the tip of the iceberg. For the rest of the season we refe...

  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: Marunde Gets Team Carwin Back on Top, Movie Night, and Sleeping in Bed Again

    So it has been one week since my minor setback by the hands (or foot) of Joey Rivera. Fear not, this smiling guy is back in action for episode four (“A New Hope - For Carwin’s Team”). The episode starts off with Dana treating the house to a movie night. He bought us popcorn and everything! The little twist of this sequence is that we actually did not see the movie until after the Bristol/Julian fight. Yours truly got a little screen time testifying how good the movie was. Let me tell you, I actually really enjoyed the movie Here Comes the BOOM. I don’t expect it to win any Academy Awards, but if you are looking for a few laughs or something to entertain the kids, then it gets 3.5 out of 5 ...
  • NAFC Armageddon Showcases Area's Promising Talent on November 3 at Wisconsin State Fair

    As Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
