Palace Fighting Championship on Thursday held its latest event, featuring four title bouts, at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif.
Nate Loughran improved his professional record to a perfect 8-0, defeating Kenny Ento, and capturing the PFC middleweight championship along the way.
Loughran has finished every single one of his opponents, seven of them by way of submission, and has never been outside of the second round. Though he has made a name for himself dominating fights for the PFC, it is likely that Loughran will soon be fielding offers from some of the more high profile promotions in the sport.
Local favorite Brian Cobb became the new lightweight champion by winning a unanimous decision over UFC veteran and AFL champion Diego Saraiva. The win not only earned Cobb the belt formerly held by Saraiva, but it also increased his winning streak to six straight bouts.
