i'm watchin the mfc card right now. it's just startin up so i hope it's good

may as well post the results as i'm watchin.

Marvin Eastman defeats Aron Lofton via TKO in round 2. Kinda glad Marvin took it to the Posterboy(yeah that's his real nickname) since the guy was striking with his hands too low and wasn't too impressive. he stuffed some of marvin's takedowns early, but his sloppy striking game led to his downfall as marvin ducked one of his punches, took him down, and elbowed his face into the mat. he seemed like too much of a pretty boy for my liking but he's new to the game and he'll be back.

Ryan Jimmo defeats Mychal Clark via UD. Didn't pay too much attention to the fight, but it basically consisted of Ryan Jimmo taking Clark down and controlling him while landing some conservative ground and pound.

John Alessio defeats Andrew Buckland via RNC in Round 1. After clinching up about a minute into the round Alessio ducks and catches Buckland with a left hook that stumbles him. Alessio takes him down, eventually secures mount and reigns down punches until Buckland gives us his back. From there Alessio sinks in the choke and Buckland taps.

Travis Galbraith defeats David Heath via SD. The two exchange for the entire first round with Heath getting the better of the strikes. The 2nd round is a lot more exciting and close with Galbraith looking more comfortable on his feet and starting to land some shots of his own. Similar 3rd round with Galbraith attempting some takedowns and even a spinning back elbow, but Heath definitely controlled the center of the ring and landed more strikes. Weird decision since i figured Heath would get the decision along with Bas and some of the announcers.

Bobby Lashley defeats Mike Cook via Guillotine in the 1st.
Not much to say here, Bobby put the dude to sleep in like 5 seconds.

Trevor Prangley defeats Emanuel Newton via UD in a 5 Round war to capture the MFC LHW Belt.
Great fight from start to finish. Newton was the fresher fighter throwing good combos and punches in bunches but only landed 36% of his shots, while Prangley threw less[amount], but more precise strikes. Prangley looked gassed after the first round, but still came out and did work throughout, even flooring Newton with a head kick as the 5th round bell sounded.
