SFS 7: Strikeforce’s Jordan Mein Quickly Stops UFC Vet Forrest Petz
By FCF Staff
Jordan Mein took a calculated risk by searching for a bout outside the Strikeforce organization, but the rising welterweight made the most of the opportunity at last night’s Score Fighting Series event, by stopping UFC vet Forrest Petz.
The 23 year-old Mein (26-8) requested permission to fight outside the ZUFFA umbrella when it became apparent that he would not fight again in 2012, following a unanimous decision win over Tyler Stinson in July. With this latest win, Mein has gone 9-1 in his last 10 fights and is likely a candidate to be brought over to the UFC, provided Strikeforce ceases operations in 2013 as expected.
The defeat ended the 37 year-old Petz’s four fight win streak and leaves his record at 25-10.
In another feature bout, the Adrenaline Training Center’s Jesse Ronson took another big step to securing an international contract, by working his way to a unanimous decision win over established lightweight Ryan Healy.
Here are the results from SFS 7, which was hosted by Hamilton’s Place Theatre.
