Thanks to everybody who supported our friend and contributor Elias Cepeda in his official MMA debut last night! The Filet-O-Fish Assassin™ stepped into the cage against Glenn Evans at last night’s United Combat League show in Merrionette Park, Illinois, and walked away with an impressive stoppage victory, which you can watch above.
Quick summary: Elias foregoes the glove tap like a gangster, lands first with a leg kick, then sprawls out on a takedown and puts Evans on his back. The fight is effectively over at this point; Cepeda eventually creates some distance and starts dropping bombs, then brilliantly scrambles to Evans’s back and finishes him with strikes from back mount. UFC veteran referee Rob Madrigal calls it at 2:02 of round 1.
Three cheers for Elias. Can anybody stop this man?
