MFC 39: Hamilton Retains Heavyweight Title, Gallicchio Taps Out Southern
By FCF Staff
Rising heavyweight Anthony Hamilton extended his winning streak to six and defended the Maximum Fighting Championship title last night, by defeating Darrill Schoonover.
Hamilton worked his way to a unanimous decision win over the UFC veteran, after stopping Smealinho Rama in October to win the MFC championship.
In the card’s other feature attraction, Tom Gallicchio tapped out Kurt Southern in the second with a rear-naked-choke. Since Gallicchio didn’t make weight for the lightweight bout, however, he did not take home the MFC’s 155 pound title.
