In 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.


 Bellator 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. 


Buck 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 Round 1.


Bisbey's 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.


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.


Punch Drunk Promotions has had a wildly successful run at the Snoqualmie Casino holding 15 shows in 2 years, & have 6 more lined up for 2011 starting with Rumble on the Ridge XVI scheduled for Jan 15th. More info at coga-mma.com or snocasino.com.
