Yankee Lake Brawlroom 34

June 20th, 2012

This past Saturday, Mr Chuck Haskell held his 34th event in the hallowed grounds that is Yankee Lake, but this time we were outside! With a few no shows, and a bogus excuse, the card ended up having just 7 fights. But as always, the small fight card was explosive! With 4 of the 7 ending in the 1st round, needless to say it was quick, but fun! Also aside from YoungstownMMA.com being in the building (figuratively speaking), there was a variable whos who of Ammy and Pro MMA Fighters in attendance. Mark Cherico, Khama Worthy, Adam Milstead, Mike Wilkins, and Jimmy Cerra just to name a few. Also Mr TAT himself Jeremiah Bozich with a full display of Thick as Thieves clothing, accompanied by Rick “I punch Faces off” Borowski.

In the Main event, Mr. John “Hairs o Plenty” Antanitis (who also serves as the NAAFS #1 Ammy middleweight) put his 185lb strap on the line against an up and coming Jordan Batt, Talking to a few of the spectators, the all had the same prediction, Antanitis by mauling….. Well they were correct, Antanitis picked up the W by Ref Stoppage in the 1st Round!

In the Co-Main Event, Mr. Jared Zarlingo attempted to defend for a 4th time his 170lb title against a very game Donnie Cameron. The 1st round was a lil lopsided as it seemed to me that Zarlingo was off. That led to Cameron controlling the 1st round with relative ease (minus the 2 take-downs from Zarlingo). They broke for round 2, pawing jabs at each other and a shot by Zarlingo landed him in a bad position, Cameron capitalized and picked up the win by Guillotine Choke. Your winner and NEW Welterweight title holder… Mr. Donnie Cameron.

April 16th, 2012

Hello Ladies, Gents, and Children of all ages, Jason here, Im gonna take the liberty and List the tentative fight card and give a very brief thought about each fight. The fights take place April 28th 2012 at the Good ol Yankee Lake Brawlroom. Fights as always are in no particular order! the 17 tentative fights are listed below:

TITLE FIGHT – Rich “the Raging Bull” Cantolina vs Cheyene Jenkins
Rich is coming off a DEC win over Matt Campbell, And Jenkins was the last to beat Cantolina. No doubt this will be a war, if Cantolina sticks to his game plan and stands and bangs, it will be an exciting fight! i think it will be a close one, but im gonna take The Bull in 3.

1. Will “the Thrill” Logsden 6-6 140lbs vs Victor Guarriello 3-4 135lbs
-Seen Will fight, very entertaining. Haven’t seen Victor….Id say Logsden via experience

2. William Watson 0-4 155lbs vs Sam Barton 0-0 145lbs
– Watson has been on a bad beat, Barton hasn’t fought yet…..Hunger triumphs in this one…

3. Jamie “the Mongoose” Fleck 0-2 135lbs vs Vincent Williams 0-0 135lbs
– Fleck coming off 2 losses will have corrected errors in camp, Williams is fresh….Gonna go Fleck here.

4. Jordan Batt 2-1 185lbs vs Sean ‘the Wolverine” Hartle 3-5 170lbs
-Haven’t seen Batt in action, Hartle has had some weight issues in the past but seems to be taking it serious now…Hartle via dec.

5. Eric Wiley 1-0 170lbs vs Brandon Pfhaler 2-1 155lbs
-Wiley is 1 and Ohhh due to a Dq, and Ive never seen Pfhaler, my sources say hes a beast…Wiley gets tested…Pfhaler wins

-I’m completely in the air here…going with Jason, cuz thats a cool name!

7. Matt Zimmerman 0-0 225lbs vs John Stafford 0-0 235lbs
– see #6….. going with Zimmerman (I know someone with that last name)

– im mixed here…Borowski hits like a mule, Smith is a tough kid…..as vegas would say…its off for me!

9. Robert Neumann 0-3 205lbs vs Chaz Kocher 0-1 205lbs
– Mr. Neumann is oh-fer, and Chaz is coming off a 1st rd TKO, unless Neumann is hitting the gym and training hard, I see Kocher with the W

10. Joe Harvey 0-1 185lbs vs Ahkuma L`Bert 0-0 185lbs
– Harveys first time back in the cage since last august, and I have nothing on L`Bert… Harvey goes to .500…i think

11. Anthony Policastro 3-1 205lbs vs O.J “Juice” Vickers 5-12 205lbs
– Policastro coming off a huge 1st TKO win, and Vickers is hungry to get a W….both big guys…im Vegas again!

– Garner coming off a loss, and Degroff now on his 3rd fight, 1st actual… im going DeGroff in the second…

14. Eddy Faison 1-1 350lbs vs Mike “the Mad Cow” Sekol 0-0 325lbs
– Faison coming off a DEC loss to Saling (not Brandon), and Sekol enters the cage for the 1st time, Sekol will have size and reach,Sekol 2nd rd

15. Mike Bothwell 2-2 170lbs vs Michael Hluhan 0-1 170lbs
– Bothwell with the experience, Hluhan still looking for the W….Hluhan via awesome last name I cant say!
