Hordes of fans packed the sold-out Southend Tennis and Leisure Centre to watch the fighters do battle at Ultimate Warrior Challenge V “Undisputed”.
The main event saw Stav “Crazy Bear” Economou defeat Alfredo Chilli via TKO due to strikes midway through round two, while Valentino Petrescu KO’d Przemyslaw Mysiala with just one second left in the opening round.
The opening amateur bout of the evening set the standard as MMAWeekly U.K. correspondent and photographer Lee Whitehead made his cage debut against 2006 ADCC U.K. silver medallist, Team Suregrip’s William Morley.
Whitehead and Morley fought a back-and-forth battle for the better part of two rounds before Morley secured an armbar for the finish.
