As injuries to key participants in CXF’s CALI KINGS TOURNAMENT continue to change the trajectory of the ground breaking event, the dynamic duo of Lights Out Promotions and Bash Entertainment nevertheless move forward to present CXF 10: FALL BRAWL - Saturday, November 4th at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City, California. With ten evenly matched pro fights already confirmed, this card is certain to be one of the best ones to date.

The main event will feature the return of CXF Flyweight Champion Steve Ramirez (C) (6-1 MMA), as he looks to solidify his hold on the division against CXF veteran and local fan favorite Georgi Garcia (5-3 MMA). With the CXF gold looming in the distance, it will certainly be a standing room only/everyone on their feet situation when these two popular warriors meet. 

In the co-main event, the growing legend that is Richard Leroy (5-0 MMA) returns to action, continuing his search for the CXF Lightweight title. In his way will be 'The Beast' Christian Aguilera (8-3 MMA), whose heavy hands quickly made themselves known his last bout for CXF. With the #1 Contender slot in CXF’s deepest division on the line, this fight is bound to be a classic!

In addition, an always scintillating prelim card that behooves any MMA fan to show up on time:

Middleweight prospect Edmen Shahbazyan (3-0 MMA) will face Blake Troop (6-5 MMA) in a 185 lbs showdown that could have future title implications. 

Bantamweight prospects Ryan Lilley (6-2 MMA)and Vince Cachero (2-0 MMA) will meet in what could easily be the fight of the night.

Fresh off his debut win Brian Del Rosario (1-0 MMA) returns against the always tough 'Ironman' Issac Velasco (1-3 MMA) in a featherweight showdown.

Fan Favorite Serob Minasyan (7-7 MMA) returns to action against rising featherweight prospect Ryan Filingame (6-3 MMA)

Rounding out the card is a bantamweight trifecta that could redesign the landscape of the entire CXF division:
Milton Arguello (1-1 MMA) will face Gary Mikayelyan (0-2 MMA).
Chris Sykes (2-0 MMA) will take on Chris Mendoza (0-1 MMA) 
Erik Van Der Lee (0-1 MMA)
 will take on newcomer Thomas Landeros.

CXF 10: 'FALL BRAWL' is presented by Lights Out Promotions and Bash Entertainment.

The San Fernando Valley’s only professional boxing show once again delivered great matchmaking last Friday with 7 hotly contested bouts, including 3 draws and two majority decision. 
Local favorite Ruben Campos (2-0, 1KO) was scheduled to open the evening’s festivities but his opponent Omar Reyes showed up feeling ill, leaving Campos and his fans without a fight. Hopefully we get to see this exciting young fighter in the ring before too long.
With the first bout scrapped, undefeated super bantamweight Alexander Enriquez (3-0-3) took on a very tough Jose Fabian Naranjo (3-7-2) in a four-round battle that left the judges without a clear victor, forcing them to score the bout a majority draw. The one dissenting judge scored the fight for Naranjo.
Undefeated welterweight Humberto Velazquez (6-0-2) remained perfect as a professional, cruising to a majority decision victory over Luis Alfredo Cruz (0-2-2). Velazquez relied on his superior footwork and pure boxing pedigree to keep Cruz off balance for most of the fight. Although one judge did score the bout a draw, Velazquez clearly asserted himself as the better boxer.
Heavy-handed welterweight Travis Gambardella (2-0-2) came in bobbing and weaving and looking for the big knockout.  But it was his opponent Jordan Marriott (1-3-2) who landed the first big shot, catching Gambardella as he charged in aggressively. Gambardella appeared to get into more of a groove after the first round, but the awkward style of Marriott seemed to keep him at bay. Once again the fight ended up in the judges hands and after four rounds the evening’s second majority draw had been declared. The one dissenting judge saw the fight for Gambardella.
“You can’t teach reach!” and for six long rounds, Moris Rodriguez (6-10-1) learned that lesson as light middleweight Bryan Flores (7-1-0) continued to school his shorter more aggressive opponent in the finer aspects of the sweet science. Unrelenting like a junk yard dog, Rodriguez continued to press his taller opponent, but the long punches and counter work by Flores continued to accumulate points earning him the majority decision with one judge scoring the bout a draw. 

Hollywood stunt-man/Boxer Sam Horowitz (6-3-2) had the hometown crowd on his side, but his opponent Daniel Najera (7-1-1) came looking to steal the thunder by catching Horowitz.  Najera looked to steal the opening rounds but Horowitz began to come to life early in the third and continued his assault in the fourth. Once again, the four-round fight was unable to clearly define a winner, forcing the judges to declare a majority draw. One judge scored the bout for Najera.
Undefeated super lightweight Stylianos Papadopoulos (8-0-1) remained perfect as a pro as he cruised past well-travelled journeyman Jose Miguel Castro (5-8-0). Papadopoulos relied on his superior footwork and athleticism, creating angles and openings that Castro just could not defend. Out gunned and down on points, Castro did his best to make it a scrap. But in the end, Papadopoulos cruised to the unanimous decision victory.

Undefeated French import Jaber Zayani (10-0) impressed what was left of the capacity crowd by swiftly dispatching his opponent Angel Monrreal (10-10-1) via second round knockout. Early in the first round it was clear that Zayani held the cards in the power department, moving his opponent with every punch. Monrreal was never able to get comfortable as Zayani refused to give him an inch to breathe. The impressive performance for Zayani will certainly move his name up in the lightweight rankings, giving the Wild Card Gym yet another prospect.

A recap of CXF 9 in Studio City: A Night of Finishes

By: Andrew • Photos By: The Clinch Report

California Xtreme Fighting presented CXF 9: Cali Kings, featuring three title fights and a fight card full of finishes.
Check out the Fite TV app to order the replay of CXF 9.
Note: Brian Del Rosario vs. Michael Jackson was not included in the Fite TV replay of the event.
Fernando Padilla defeated Sergio Perez via Submission in Round 1
Early on in the bout, Padilla was able to rock Perez with some strikes before the fight went to the ground. This was an excellent display of jiu-jitsu from Padilla, who utilized a Rubber Guard to naturalize Perez’ grappling game. Padilla would use the 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu technique to get into a Dead Orchard to set up a Triangle Armbar variation to verbally submit the previously undefeated Perez early in the first round.

A.J. Bryant, Jr. defeated Dmitry Gerasimov via T.K.O. (Referee Stoppage) at 3:00 of Round 2.
The opening moments of the fight saw Gerasimov land some nice strikes on Bryant. Bryant appeared to be rocked at one point by those shots. Bryant would score a huge knockdowt referee Mike Beltran gave Gerasimov a chance to fight back. Bryant would land plenty of shots towards the end of the first, but Gerasimov continued to show heart and kept fighting back. Despite starting out the second round as the aggressor, Gerasimov was unable to get the better of Bryant, who was able to stuff Gerasimov’s takedown attempts. Bryant dominated the second round, but despite heavy strikes, Gerasimov was able to survive till the end of the second.
After the end of the second round, referee Mike Beltran called the fight. While Dmitry Gerasimov showed a lot of heart, he took a lot of damage towards the end of the second. The safety of the fighter should always come first. Mike Beltran made the right call to end the fight. A.J. Bryant deserves a lot of credit his victory, and Dmitry Gerasimov deserves a lot of respect for his performance.
Christian Aguilera defeated Joshua Jones via T.K.O. in Round 1.
This was a quick and dirty bout. Jones  came out strong in this, and dropped Aguilera early on. After Aguilera stuffed a takedown attempt, he was able to push off the cage to get some distance. As Jones tried to close distance with a cross, Aguilera caught him with a nicely timed counter lead left hook to knock Jones down. Aguilera followed with a hammer fist on Jones before the bout was stopped by referee Frank Trigg at 0:40 of Round 1.
Dominck Clark defeated Chris Culley via Submission (Mounted Guillotine) in Round 1.
Clark was in control for the entire bout, controlling Culley with his grappling skills. After scoring an early takedown, Clark worked to pass the guard of Culley while fishing for a Kimura after passing into side control. Clark would control the head of Culley, and used it to get a mounted guillotine choke for the win. Dominck Clark did an excellent job at executing his game plan in this fight.
This was an emotional bout for Chris Culley. He addressed the crowd to let them know that he would be taking a break from the sport. He stated he was doing it to take care of his mother, who is in poor health. Fighters go through a lot inside and outside of the gym. For Chris Culley to go into this fight with what he’s dealing with deserves tons of respect.
Cali Kings Tournament Semi-Final – CXF Interim Lightweight Championship Fight: Roosevelt Roberts defeated Shohei Yamamoto via T.K.O. in Round 2 to advance to the finals of the CXF Cali Kings Tournament. Roberts becomes the CXF Lightweight Champion.
The winner of this fight would be going on to face Darren Smith, Jr., who received a bye into the finals after his scheduled opponent, Richard LeRoy, was unable to compete.
Both guys traded several shots in the opening minute of the bout. Things were pretty even until Roberts scored four takedowns on Yamamoto and utilized that to impose himself on Yamamoto. After Yamamoto looked for a Kimura from bottom, Roberts started to land some ground and pound while controlling Yamamoto. Yamamoto was able to survive Roberts’ grinding offense to take the fight into the second round.
The second round would see Roberts pressuring Yamamoto by holding him against the cage. Yamamoto was able to stuff Roberts’s takedown attempts. Roberts connected with a with a jab-cross combo after Yamamoto tried backing him into the fence to score a huge knockdown. Roberts would unload lots of strikes on Yamamoto after this. Despite giving Yamamoto several chances to fight back, referee Mike Beltran called a stop to the action a little over two minutes in the second.
With the victory, Roosevelt Roberts becomes the CXF Lightweight Champion, and will go on to face Darren Smith, Jr. in the finals of CXF’s Cali Kings tournament. This should be an excellent fight, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
CFX Flyweight Championship Fight: Steve Ramirez defeated Mike Hansen via K.O. (Punch) in Round 1 to become the first CXF Flyweight Champion
Both guys started out looking to land kicks early on. Hansen had some nice combinations early, and was able to rock Ramirez a bit in the opening minute. Ramirez would catch Hansen with a huge left hand moments later, and scored a knock down after. As Hansen was on the ground, Ramirez maintained his composure and showed good discipline by not trying to swing wildly after Hansen was down. Hansen would use leg lock to get back to his feet and began to fight back.
Ramirez used a lead uppercut-overhand left combo to get inside Hansen’s range, allowing him to get a Thai Plum where he landed a vicious uppercut to score a walk off K.O. This was a really fun bout, and both guys put on solid performances. Unfortunately, it was not Hansen’s night. Steve Ramirez becomes the first CXF Flyweight Champion as a result of this win.
CXF Featherweight Championship: Chase Gibson defeated Jeffrey Martin via T.K.O. (Strikes) in Round 1 to retain the CXF Featherweight Championship.
This was Gibson’s first defense of the CXF Featherweight title. Martin tried to charge at Gibson as soon as the fight started and pressured the champion early on. Gibson maintained his composure as Martin threw several kicks and kept pressing forward. Gibson would land a belly-to-back takedown slam, and took the back of Martin. The fight would end after Gibson landed heavy ground and pound after controlling Martin for several moments. Great showing from Chase Gibson here in his first championship defense.
Thor Skancke defeated Quinten McCottrell via T.K.O. (Strikes) in Round 1
This was a special attraction main event, with this being Thor Skancke’s retirement fight. The former King of the Cage Champion was taken down early on by McCottrell in the opening minute of the fight. Skancke was able to keep McCottrell from advancing position on the ground with a lockdown, and was able to get the fight back to standing. McCottrell would score a second takedown, but had a difficult time holding Skancke down. Skancke would land a number of unanswered strikes and stuffed a takedown attempt from his opponent.
McCottrell scored a third takedown on Skancke, and was able to control his back for several moments halfway through the round. Skancke would use his feet to push off the cage after being mounted by McCottrell to score a sweep and end up on top. This allowed Skancke to land some heavy ground strikes on McCottrell before referee Mike Beltran called an end to the fight. After weathering some pressure from Quinten McCottrell, Thor Skancke was able to overcome McCottrell’s offense to get the win in the final fight of his MMA career.
Final Thoughts
I keep saying California Xtreme Fighting puts on some great fights. There were broadcast issues with the stream, but that was fixed. The fights themselves are lots of fun. This card was no exception. A.J. Bryant, Jr. vs. Dmitry Gerasimov was a fun fight, and probably the best of the night. Steve Ramirez had the best K.O. of the card, and Fernando Padilla’s submission was a thing of beauty. I highly recommend fight fans check this card out.
