UWC 'Capital Punishment' quick results: Easton retains, War Machine submits Woods

Ultimate Warrior Challenge (UWC) returned to the George Mason University Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia on Saturday, April 25 for its sixth installment titled 'Capital Punishment' that was headlined by a Bantamweight title fight between Mike Easton and Josh Ferguson.

In a night of finishes, Ferguson came out aggressively and kept Easton on the defensive with a mixture of takedown attempts and strikes (even a flying knee), however it wouldn't be enough as the 135-pound champ kept his composure and retained the gold with a guillotine choke late in the first.

Easton remains perfect under the UWC banner with his fourth straight win since his successful debut back at UWC 'Invasion' in April 2008.

Also on the card, former UFC fighter War Machine (the headcase formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver) secured his third straight win with an impressive performance against Rashad Woods in a catchweight bout of 175 lbs.

Woods came to fight, rocking War Machine on a couple of occasions with some vicious Thai knees and a nice slam in the second round. But the former TUF contestant showed his toughness and tenacity by keeping the pressure on and capitalizing on the opportunity to sink in a rear naked choke.

Since losing to Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 84 "Ill Will" and being ousted from the UFC for having diarrhea of the mouth, War Machine has continued to improve as a fighter and now boasts three straight stoppages within three separate promotions.

While a return to the UFC is unlikely, expect to see more of War Machine on the local circuit as long as he continues to make headlines and win fights.

Here are the complete results for UWC 6 'Capital Punishment," which also featured a special appearance by former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz:
