Brand new mixed martial arts promotion, "Arena Rumble," hosted its debut event last night (Saturday, Sept. 12) from the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane, Washington.
Several ex-UFC and Elite XC fighters competed on the card, including main event participants, Jeremy "Gumby" Horn and Jason Guida. In a battle between a former UFC light heavyweight number one contender and a cast off from season eight of "The Ulitmate Fighter," "Gumby" notched career win number 52 by way of submission.
It didn't take him long, either.
Horn slapped a fight-ending arm choke on Clay Guida's older brother rather quickly in the first round, capturing his second straight win while handing Guida his fifth straight loss.
In the co-main event, Strikeforce and UFC veteran Trevor Prangley landed a brutal one punch knockout over Dennis Reed just 20 seconds into the contest. With the win, Prangley improved his overall record to 21-5 and notched his tenth win in his last 11 appearances.
The night wasn't so kind to two other former UFC fighters as hard-hitting middleweight Terry Martin and Goliath heavyweight Brad Imes were each put to sleep with knockout blows before the final bells of their respective bouts.
Martin was laid down by Julio Paulino in the third round while Imes also made it through two and a half rounds before being stopped in the third frame by Josh Queen.
Current undefeated Strikeforce prospect Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm was also victorious on the card, keeping his perfect record intact (13-0) with a first round technical knockout over Josh Martin.
Here are the full results from the action:
Jeremy Horn defeated Jason Guida via submission (arm choke) in round one
