Rogue Fights "Ultimate River Throwdown" - April 13, 2013

Win-River Casino - Redding, California

Press Release from Rogue Fights



Bill Widler and Hector Sandoval take home victories at

Rogue Fights' Ultimate River Throwdown.


Event took place in front of a packed house at Win-River Casino

in Redding, CA on Saturday, April 13.


(Redding, CA) Hector Sandoval (5-1), fighting for Urijah Faber's Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, CA, won a unanimous decision over Robby Schepps of Team Quest in Redding, CA. Sandoval broke his right hand early in round one, but that didn't stop him from dominating Schepps in strikes. The flyweights both had numerous submissions attempts, but neither could finish, so the judges decided.


Bill Widler (6-4), fighting for Redding Submissions, won a unanimous decision over Marcus Gaines from No Limit Fighting in Fairfield, CA. Widler used his superior wrestling ability to control Gaines on the ground for most of the fight. Gaines was close on a knee bar in Round Two, but other than that it was all Bill Widler from bell to bell.


The undercard provided exciting amateur fights, and both Knock Out of the Night and Fight of the Night honors went to amateur fighters.


The KO of the night was Karma. Dan Lewis (2-1), an Independent fighter from Redding, CA, was knocked out 30 seconds into Round One by Josh Coleman of 21 Grams Fight Gym in McKinleyville, CA. Coleman was confidently showboating, trying to get in Lewis's head. The fighters exchanged strikes, and Lewis put his chin out, daring Coleman to strike him. Coleman immediately obliged him with a powerful right hand, resulting in a spectacular knockout.


The Fight of the Night was awarded to the bout for the Rogue Fights' Amateur lightweight belt. Chad Brewer, from Iron Horse Fight Team in Susanville, CA, battled Antoine Gibson, from Team Asylum in Vallejo, CA. Both men fought hard all three rounds. Both fighters had the other in trouble from strikes and various submission attempts, but they went the distance. All three judges scored it 29 to 28 in favor of Brewer. Although this fight could have gone either way, Brewer was the aggressor and earned the victory.
