Late last night (Jan. 16, 2010), Midwest-based mixed martial arts promotion, 5150 Combat, held its turn-of-the-year event, "New Year's Revolution." at the Spirit Bank Event Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The promotion pulled out all the stops for the show, featuring numerous ex-UFC fighters on the card, including main event participant, Houston Alexander, who was fresh off his lackluster losing performance against Kimbo Slice at the The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale last month, signed on to scrap with hard hitting knockout artist, Joey "The Mexicutioner" Beltran.
The Nebraska native was able to avoid a knockout against Slice, but all the "defense" in the world wasn't going to stop Beltran from getting the stoppage.
Where Kimbo was ineffective in his ability to close the distance on his feet with Alexander, "The Mexicutioner" had no trouble, erasing that distance by taking Alexander to the mat and smothering him with ground and pound. Alexander weathered a nasty storm to survive the first round, but he couldn't make it through the second, succumbing to strikes midway through the frame.
The win marks Beltran's ninth career (technical) knockout.
Ex-Zuffa employees Rich "No Love" Clementi (UFC) and Mike Budnik (WEC) squared off for their new organization's lightweight championship belt.
The fight was back and forth for the majority of the five rounds before the submission specialist, Clementi, locked in his eighteenth career submission victory, finishing off a game Budnik with a rear naked choke.
Three other titles were also decided on the night.
Gary Frazier captured the heavyweight crown by stopping Ray Clayton with strikes in the fourth round. And former UFC light heavyweight Tim Boetsch is now the 5150 Combat 205 pound champion after submitting Rudy Lindsey in the second round with a guillotine.
In other action, Amber Powell claimed the female atomweight belt when she submitted Tammy Schneider with a first round armbar.
Former UFC top heavyweight contender Jeff Monson also competed on the main card, making his first appearance since dropping a decision to Pedro Rizzo back in September. "The Snowman" eked out a razor close split decision over dangerous up-and-comer, John Brown.
