Vengeance at the Vanderbilt 14 Results
By Loretta Hunt

In front of a feverish, capacity crowd, Louis Neglia and Ray Longo’s popular Long Island fight show quickly unfolded last night in Plainview — and a solid evening of action it was. Vengeance at the Vanderbilt 14 boasted a myriad of local tri-state area talent — competitors came from as far away as Pennsylvania to get their shot in the ring. The stacked line-up included three kickboxing and five Muay Thai bouts, including one jolting female match-up. Although there were two last minute fight cancellations, three freestyle mixed martial arts exhibitions still rounded out the card — a great representation for a show that touts itself mainly as a kickboxing show. With an estimated 800 or so hungry fans attending, the "fight scene" grows leaps and bounds thanks to reputable shows like this one. Here are the results:

Pro USKBA Lightweight World Championship
Tim Lane def. Tommy Rodriguez- Split Decision (10 Rounds)
