In front of a packed house at Martin’s Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, MD that included current and former members of the Baltimore Ravens as well as former Baltimore Orioles, two Maryland veterans battled in one of the better bouts this year in the Beltway region.

“The Berlin Bomber” Joshua Snyder of Berlin, MD won a tough eight-round split decision over Baltimore’s Maxell “The General” Taylor. Great close fight, both in the ring and on the scorecards. The bout was fought mostly phone-booth style until Snyder was able to put Taylor on his bicycle in the seventh round. Judges Don Risher and Dave Greer saw the bout 77-75 for Snyder while Gary Camponeschi gave Taylor the nod, 77-75. (more…)

Aydin vs Dan Nov 26

On November 26th, 2011, WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin and Canada based Romanian Ionut “Jo Jo Dan” Ion will clash in a re-match which will be billed as “Unfinished Business” (in Turkish “Büyük Hesaplasma”). In their first fight in June 2010 Aydin dominated the early rounds, knocking down his opponent in the first stanza. Jo Jo not only got up from the knockdown, but came back strong and even seemed to get stronger the longer the fight lasted. In the end, Aydin won by split decision.

“Both fighters got something to prove. Both guys think that they still have to settle the score with the other guy. These are perfect conditions for a great fight,” says promoter Ahmet Oner. (more…)

WBC superflyweight title holder Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (20-4-1, 7 KOs) successfully kept his WBC crown as he won a unanimous decision over two-time WBA champion Nobuo Nashiro (15-4-1, 9 KOs) on Friday at National Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. Although the action was a close affair, but it seemed Thailander mostly get little better, using his more accurate counterpunches to deny Japanese’s aggression. Nashiro gained the scores back in round nine and round ten as he displayed many right shots to the champion’s head. However, the better man was Suriyan who came back to dominate again with his fast jabs punctuated by right hooks until the final round. Scored: 119-109,116-113,115-113.

Mr. Nice Guy packs a punch

UFC 138 is LIVE on SPIKE TV Nov. 5!

This sport has never been about who is the “baddest”; it always was and forever will be about who is the best. From its inception to its darkest of days clear through to the current near mainstream acceptance of the UFC, mixed martial arts has never been judged on who has the scariest look, the most fiendish tattoos, the greatest trash talk or, overall, the meanest disposition. The Octagon is in existence to determine who the elite athletes of this exciting hybrid combat sport are. In conclusion, the terrifyingly tough UFC roster is filled with genuinely good guys when they’re not busy cagefighting. . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com
