on the Ridge XV "Vindication" - December 4th, 2010
Casino - Snoqualmie, Washington
Drunk Promotions held their final event of the year at the
Snoqualmie Casino with Rumble on the
Ridge XV, featuring 5 pro & 4 amateur bouts.
the main event, Strikeforce fighter Lyle "Fancy Pants"
Beerbohm, used a McKenzitine, Cody
McKenzie's modified guillotine choke, to beat Talon Hoffman at
2:48 of Round 1.
After the fight, Lyle talked
about the win, what's next for him with Strikeforce, and he gave a shoutout to his
Sikjitsu teammate McKenzie who won
at the TUF 12 Finale Saturday via the very same choke.
vet and local favorite, Mike "300" Hayes rematched with
Team Quest's Josh Bennett in a pro heavyweight bout that ended
just as it looked to get going. Bennett took a shot to the eye
early and was unable to see and as Hayes moved forward, Bennett
covered and finally signaled to the ref he couldn't continue. The
bout was called at that point to the disappointment of the crowd
and both fighters.
Bisbey out of Charlie's Combat Club returned to the cage after a
year and a half out of the game and ran into a talented Charon
Spain in a 145 lb bout characterized by fast paced scrambling on
the part of both fighters. In the end it was Spain catching Bisbey
in a tight triangle that put Bisbey to sleep at 4 minutes into
teammate, Jeremy Pidgeon had more success in a 170 lb bout with
veteran fighter Justin Larsson. Larsson shot in early and Pidgeon
jumped guard and latched on a tight guillotine choke, ending the
fight just 15 seconds in.
an entertaining 205 lb matchup, Kyle "Kodiak" Keeney
used effective cage control to get the better of a game Jared
Toregson both on the ground and feet to win via unanimous decision
after 15 minutes of fighting.
