Mixed Martial Arts has taken the world by storm, and the best of the best Michigan Cage-fighters were at it again as AdoreAble Promotions, Inc. Toughman Cage-fighting presented Extreme Cage Combat 8.0 MMA at the Prime Event Center on Friday, April 8, 2011.
It was another great night of cage fights in Downtown Bay City, with a record attendance, featuring 23 bouts on the card. The card included 4 Championship Title Belts that went to Jimmy Woodrow, Adam Rocha, Jay May and Deland Davis.
Jimmy Woodrow, (Below)
of Saginaw, won his 3rd title defense for 170 Title belt. (TKO, ref stopped contest due to strikes)
Woodrow said, "My opponent, Dylan (Davis) was a very tough opponent and is going to give many people problems in future fights of his but me and my trainer John Schulz came up with a game plan and I stuck to it and was able to get a win by it."
Woodrow, continued, "It was an awesome night of good fights. John is a good and fair match-maker and always puts everyone before himself. It was a positive environment to be a part of and as a fighter I was able to feed off that energy and put on a good show for everyone."
