Prior to his co-main event heavyweight mixed martial arts match against Ogden's Craig Mock Saturday night, late substitute Mike Robinson was announced as "hailing from parts unknown." Three minutes and one second later, Robinson knew exactly where was was: in West Haven and pounded into submission by the 230-pound Mock, who easily triumphed before a large crowd at The Gym.
Robinson, 207 pounds, quickly wilted under Mock's ground-and-pound skills, and was loser by TKO via strikes. It was the first MMA fight in seven-plus months for Mock, who seems fully recovered from a knee injury.
In the other main event, Ogden's Patrick Reeves, 156 pounds, provided a game effort despite losing a five-round kickboxing decision to Steve Sharp, 160 pounds, from Salt Lake City. Sharp frequently rattled Reeves with head shots and wore him down with strong leg kicks, but Reeves kept the match competitive.
Another Ogden MMA pro, 185-pound Francisco Alcantara used his superior ring generalship to outclass Sandy's Isaac Caraballo, 183 pounds. Alacantara used a kimura to force a tap out midway through Round 2.
Undefeated Ogden fighter Shawn Conroy scored his third consecutive first-round stoppage in dispatching Richard Urias with a rear naked choke at 3:55 of the first round. Both fighters weighed 170 pounds.
Ogden 138-pounder Parris Swain overcame a significant weight disadvantage to win a solid three-round decision over veteran Sooksan Simpleman, 155 pounds, who was announced as fighting out of Roy. After a close first round, Swain used superior wrestling skills to dominate the final rounds.
Layton's Carlos Henrique, 170 pounds, used a strong left kick to the head to render Ogden's Fernando Corona, 160 pounds, senseless in less than a minute of Round 1.
Orem's Jesse Clark, 145 pounds, started strongly against Francisco Espinoza, also 145 pounds, but by the third round was exhausted. The fight was stopped just before the final bell, with Espinoza the TKO winner by strikes.
In the final pro fight, Ogden's Matt Buck was stopped in the first round by Orem's Collin Clifford by a rear naked choke. Both fighters weighed 140 pounds.
The card, which didn't end until midnight, began with two competitive amateur contests. In the first, Layton's Bryce Edminister won a decision over Orem's Tyler Rackham, and Magna's Skyler Frasier won by a third-round armbar at 2:15 over Layton's John Day.
Salt Lake City TV personality Big Budah was the ring announcer. Also, Ashleigh Bambrough, of South Ogden, who is involved with the anti-domestic violence organization Stop the Silence, Stop the Violence, Team Ashleigh, addressed the crowd.
