Madtown Throwdown 28 - Quick Results and Recap
Madtown Throwdown 28 showcased a number of dominating finishes on Saturday night including an overpowering submission victory from headlining Steve Carl, commanding knockouts by Tyler Hellenbrand and Mike "Biggie" Rhodes, and impressive chokes courtesy of Rob Couillard and Zach Browder.
Carl Bulldozes Trace
Team Hard Drive standout Steve Carl proved to be on an entirely different level than his lesser experienced opponent Andrew Trace by quickly taking the action to the ground and cinching in a forceful rear naked choke. Check back for a full recap of the fight along with the entire video tomorrow on US Combat Sports.
Young Guns Shine
Some of Wisconsin's most promising prospects were on display at Madtown Throwdown "Hells Bells" as Tyler Hellenbrand, Rob Couillard, Zach Browder, and Mike "Biggie" Rhodes all earned first round stoppages. Videos of each fight and recaps will be published tomorrow on US Combat Sports.
Sickinger and Blake Emerge Victorious
It sure wasn't pretty but the end result was a win for Unified Martial Arts' Morgan Sickinger. "The Captain" may not have stolen the show with his Split Decision victory (29-28, 29-28, 27-30) over Josh Kasee but it did get him back in the win column.
Waukesha MMA's Joe Blake made a successful return to the cage with a grueling decision victory over Mike Sanchez. The back-and-forth battle was exciting from start to finish and reminded us why "Smokin" Joe was a draw before his recent hiatus.
Fans in attendance also witnessed Gino DiGullio's second round submission over Matt Wikoff and victories from amateurs Bob Hocraffer and Bryan Marty. Make sure to return back for full recaps, videos, and breakdowns of the entire night.
