HOOKnSHOOT Showdown Results:
Edwards Does It Again

By Joe Hall

      As Aaron Riley and Yves Edwards made their way to the ring, the hometown crowd left their seats to gather a bit closer in the aisle way. Those already sitting ringside squeezed a little tighter while the fans in attendance roared to welcome Riley in his return fight after a departure to train across the country. In the three memorable rounds that followed, Yves Edwards landed a plethora of knees and punches to stun the crowd and become the new HOOKnSHOOT Middleweight Champion. Despite cutting Riley early in the first round and dominating on the feet throughout, Edwards narrowly escaped defeat several times. In what appeared to be typical Riley come-from-behind fashion, the bleeding champion passed to the side mount and swung for an arm lock in the final round. However, Edwards patiently defended and closed the round standing with a vicious combination. An incredible fight went to the judges whom justly and unanimously awarded the bout to Edwards. Riley showed unmatched heart, never going down despite the endless number of strikes he absorbed. Yves Edwards, on the other hand, scored another impressive win over Riley and should now receive the attention he deserves from the MMA world.
