Liveblog: Evolution AMMA Part 1

MMA Journalist is here in Dover, New Jersey, for the debut of Evolution AMMA, a new addition to the Garden State amateur scene. Veteran coach Steve Katz is the matchmaker, and a things seem to be running smoothly for a first-time show. I just ran into TSMMA trainer Dave Tirelli, who's taking the plunge as a referee; he's pretty excited about that. First bout: Kyle Jergensen vs. Gerald Javier, which is a pairing between two 122-pound warriors who are young and hungry. Seriously, they're starving. I think I'm going to offer them some Fritos. And to prove my point, Javier overwhelms his opponent with fists for the 23-second TKO win. Next up, Ozzy Dugulubgov against Chris Wunder. Dugulubov is one tough cat with a sambo background, and the last time he fought he gave Matt Serra-trained Frank Oyague a hell of time, so he's definitely one to watch. Wow, Ozzy is large and in charge from beginning to end, throwing Wunder down and snagging the armbar at 1:29.
