Hammond, Ind. – The main event of Total Fighting Challenge’s 10th Anniversary Show featured Shooto World #3 ranked and current 135lb Total Fight Challenge Champion Miguel Angel Torres taking on Charles “Man of War” Wilson at 145 pounds.
Throughout the fight, Wilson survived multiple submission attempts from Torres on the ground and fought to stay standing while using his unorthodox stance and kicks to keep Miguel at bay. Despite spending most of the 1st and 2nd rounds in triangle and armbar attempts from Torres, Wilson refused to tap and landed several shots as he escaped the holds that bloodied the face of Torres in both rounds. Wilson obviously wanted to keep the fight standing, but in the third round Torres imposed his will and brought the fight into his guard where he locked on a tight triangle choke and forced a very game Wilson to finally tap out at 1:29 of the 3rd round.
In a battle of two highly regarded 155-pounders, Triston Yunker submitted Jason Chambers with an armbar that appeared to dislocate the elbow of Chambers. With the victory Yunker is in line for a shot at Jay Estrada’s 155lb Total Fight Challenge Title.
Dan “The Handler” Hornbuckle continued his impressive winning streak by submitting Alex Carter in a lightening fast 0:35 due to a triangle choke.
Recently signed WEC 135lb Champion Eddie Wineland used solid leg kicks and successfully stuffed repeated takedown attempts from veteran Dan Swift to methodologically take a unanimous decision victory.
All in all, the Total Fight Challenge 10 was another hugely successful display of the best fighters and talent that the Midwest has to offer. With non-stop action and only 3 of the 15 fights going to a decision, this event featured everything an MMA fan could ask for.
