Reality Fighting 5 & A.C. Prove a Potent Pair
By Loretta Hunt

November 1st — After four successful installments, REALITY FIGHTING V punched, kicked, and grappled its way to the spotlight of Atlantic City, New Jersey for a filling night of mixed martial arts action. RF’s promoter Kipp Kollar has had a full plate these last few weeks, with his Mass Destruction amateur event last weekend and his popular NAGC grappling tournament slated for next weekend in Bayonne, New Jersey. His vast experience in promotion shown through tonight, as an estimated audience of roughly 2,000 plus spectators turned out for the Boardwalk Hall-hosted 16-fight event.

Highlights included an impressive demonstration of consummate ground control by Longo-Serra-Gracie rep Chris Schlesinger, a lightening-fast eighteen second submission win by teammate and first-timer Gabriel Toribio, 4’10" BAMA/Team Endgame Jay Isip’s feisty resistance to veteran Kurt Pelligrino’s devastating body slams before succumbing to an armbar, and a stellar showing worthy of any fight card out there by flyweights Nick Cottone and Joe McFarlane.

But not to forget the ladies … IFC champion Amanda Buckner locked horns with 125-pound USMMA Champion Laura D’Auguste in an extremely evenly matched women’s bout rarely seen on the East Coast. Both peppered each other standing and flip-flopped dominant positions on the ground, but in the end, the judges deemed the two-round war too close to call.
