Over 1000 rabid fans jam packed the intimate Edmonds Community College gym to see their home town favorite Boyd Ballard look to avenge the losses of team-mates Otto Olson and Landon Showalter, who were both defeated Team Quest stand out Chris Leben. Sporting a perfect undefeated record, Leben had ran through both Olson and Showalter in consecutive fights and looked to tack onto his unblemished record with a win over Ballard. As the fight began both fighters circled until Ballard rushed and was able to clinch and slam Leben to the canvas. From his guard, Leben looked for a kimura followed by an arm bar, which Ballard was able to power his way out of. After a second unsuccessful arm bar attempt, Leben was undeterred and once again searched for the submission. The third time would prove to be the charm as this time Leben clamped on a tight arm bar, which had Ballard quickly tapping the mat giving the Team Quest fighter a third consecutive victory over PBBA.

The aforementioned, Otto Olson, looked to get back on the winning track after being Ko’d in his previous fight. After having multiple opponents pass on the fight it was Justin Gardner who finally stepped up to the plate and took the fight mere hours before the show began. It became quickly apparent why match maker Charles Pearson had such a difficult time finding an opponent for the former Michigan wrestling standout. Olson immediately took Gardner down, attained the full mount and began to pound away with punches until the referee called a halt to the onslaught just 44 seconds into the opening round.

In other action Joel Pettit had a strong showing against first timer Quinton Krall. After being knocked out in a world record of 1 second in his last fight, Pettit methodically worked for a myriad of submissions until finally catching Krall in an Achilles lock. Rob Dyer also fought a terrific fight against Thai Konchonji. Dyer imposed his will dominating the fight and eventually wore Konchonji down, took his back and locked in a picture perfect rear-naked choke for the submission victory.
