Taking its Art of War event outside of Texas for the first time, Undisputed Arena Fighting Championships made its casino debut at Harrah’s Grand Tunica Casino & Resort in Mississippi on Saturday night.
Of the eight bouts on the fight card, not one went to a decision.
The main event featured two heavyweights, but it was Mike Wessel who won the bout and the Quickest Knockout award with his TKO of Matt Thomas at 2:42 of round one.
In a super heavyweight fight, Shane Carwin, tipping the scales at just 266 pounds, made quick work of former professional football player Rex Richards, submitting him with a guillotine choke.
Carwin returned to action just last month in Denver after more than a year off to heal up some injuries. Now, two fights back, he has kept his undefeated record intact at 7-0. He is rumored to return to Denver in December for a shot at the Ring of Fire heavyweight title.
