World Championship Fighting (WCF) put a ribbon on its ninth offering last night (Feb. 26, 2010) from the Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
WCF 9 featured a main event between former Olympian and undefeated MMA fighter Rick Hawn against New Jersey native Tom Gallicchio. Hawn -- a four-time national champion in Judo and top 10 finisher at the 2004 Olympics -- kept his perfect record intact with a unanimous decision, passing perhaps the toughest test of his career to date.
In other action, New England mainstays John Benoit and Dan Bonnell racked up more wins, defeating Noah Weisman via unanimous decision and Cesario de Souza via first round technical knockout.
