Miletich Victorious in Adrenaline Return; Rothwell, McGivern Also Win

In his first fight appearance in over two years — and his first victory since UFC 32 in June 2001 — legendary MMA pioneer/trainer Pat Miletich proved he’s not too old to beat some ass, overwhelming Thomas Denny with punches in the second round of their match at last night’s Adrenaline II event in Moline, Illinois. The 40-year-old "Croatian Sensation" controlled the entire fight, knocking Denny down twice in the opening round. As he said afterwards, "To be honest with you, win, lose or draw I was saying to myself backstage, ‘I accomplished something just getting back in to the shape I am.’ I’m an old guy, but these young guys motivate me."

It was also a good night for Miletich’s proteges, as the Miletich Fighting Systems camp went 5-2 on the night. Most notably, heavyweight standout Ben Rothwell took out an underqualified Chris Guillen, ending the fight with strikes from the top after a couple of submission attempts didn’t pan out; it was Guillen’s fifth-straight loss. Former IFL vets and MFS stablemates Ryan McGivern and Mike Ciesnolevicz also notched submission wins against less-experienced opponents (Geno Roderick and Derrick Mehmen, respectively). Overall, there were a lot of lopsided matchups on Adrenaline’s second effort, but honestly, what else are you gonna do in Moline on a Thursday night? Full results after the jump…

Pat Miletich is trying to cash in now that mma is a helluva lot bigger then when he first started and was fighting for 500 bucks.You can't blame a guy for that.Also Thomas Denny is a tough SOB and his Leprechaun style beard is awesome.

At the end of th fight, the old faggot yelled the mating call of his people: "Thank god my wife is not a jew."

Fuck Miletich and the rest of his anti-semitic nazi-memorabilia wearing fucking retards.
They can go and blow their fucking pope.

All we need now as a cherry on the sundae is for an estonian or other baltic scumbag who still have parades for the fallen SS to fight this turd.
