Have you been a good little boy?
Stocking stuffer

      (December 14, Elizabeth, New Jersey) Fans and fighters alike braved sleet and snow to see Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat V at the Rexplex Sports Complex today, and with all bouts ending with either a flurry of strikes or a hard-won submission, there was action aplenty. Representatives hailed from BAMA, Team Endgame, the Serra/Longo Competition Team, Fight Factory and Team Tiger Schulmann, among others, and each of the 14 competitors left it all in the ring. Highlights of the night included:

  • Team Tiger Schulmann rep Mike Murray’s patience and poise under fire. Opponent Valodia Gevorgyan quickly wore himself out swinging for the rafters, and was put to sleep courtesy of Murray’s tight triangle choke.
  • Fight Factory stud Eddie Alvarez utilizing his wrestling skills to control Anthony Ladonna, and rain down knockout strikes from the mount.
  • BAMA/Team Endgame slugger Carlos Moreno’s furious punching onslaught and opponent Justin Villella’s dogged determination and solid chin, as these two battled to either score the knockout or the takedown. Securing a TKO win, this was another impressive win for Moreno!
