Liveblog: CFFC Part 3
James Meals of AMA FC steps into the cage to take on Trevor Suter of Team Hard Drive. Suter was originally from Team Central Processing Unit, but he had a falling out (ROM issues). We'll see if the change in camps affects him. Wow. The revitalized Meals strikes again. After weathering Suter's agressive striking and wrestling, he starts blasting Suter on the feet and attacking from the bottom, sneaking in an Anaconda choke at 4:52 of the first round. With AMA FC, Meals has made himself into a totally different fighter. Now it's time for Pellegrino MMA's Craig Thieme and Infamous Rival's Nah-Shon Burrell to mix it up. Round 1 is an utter slugfest, with the face-mashing party interspersed with the odd takedown and guillotine attempt. It's close going into Round 2, but when Burrell opens up a cut near Thieme's eye, it turns into a bloodbath that favors the Infamous Rival rep. Round 3 is more carnage - Burrell's knuckles somehow finding Thieme's cut with every punch - and at 3:34 of the frame referee Keith Peterson has seen enough and waives the bout off. Anthony Dagostino of SPMF and Jared Gordon of the Bombsquad are up at bat. This one starts of wild, with each tossing the other about and scrambling like they know their way around a wrestling mat. It's all about the boxing in Round 2, though, and once Gordon tags Dagostino on the chin and stuns him, the rear naked choke comes easily at 1:42. Good effort by Dagostino, who's just made his pro debut at 46-years old.
