Current Events From the NorthEast
Dez Green scored possibly his biggest win to date at Bellator 105. Triumph MMA’s Peggy Morgan will be featured on The Ultimate Fighter this Wednesday. Also, Brian Kelleher headlines the Cage Fury 29 card next weekend in Pennsylvania.
Dez Green rebounded from just his second loss with a stellar win this past Friday night in New Mexico when the Team Bombsquad Featherweight stopped Angelo Sanchez in the second round of their Bellator 105 bout. The former college wrestler displayed outstanding striking and counterpunching throughout, eventually cutting Sanchez on the forehead with a sharp elbow. The fight was stopped at 1:04 of the second round due to that cut. The win improves Dez’ record to 10-2.
This Wednesday night on TUF Season 18, NH’s Peggy Morgan will be featured in her fight with Sarah Moras. Peggy is currently undefeated in both her Pro and Amateur MMA careers. Fighting for Team Rousey, Peggy will face Team Tate’s Sarah Moras, who entered the show with a 3-1 slate. You can catch the show this Wednesday evening.
Brian Kelleher will headline the Cage Fury 29 event next weekend at the Valley Forge Casino in Pennsylvania. The Team Bombsquad Featherweight will face PA’s own Jeff Smith in the Main Event. Kelleher had a stellar 2012 when he ran off five wins in ten months. But in 2013, Brian has dropped his last two fights, falling to 9-5. Jeff Smith (11-2) is also coming off a loss on the WSOF 3 card in June.
Also on the Cage Fury 29 card will be Spa City Welterweight Matt Secor and Team Stryker lightweight Tommy Marcellino.
