HDNet Fights held their second ever event tonight at the America Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas. The co-main event fights featured Frank Trigg (15-6-0) vs. Edwin Dewees, while the other fight was a rematch of a fight from nearly four years ago between Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Tim Kennedy. Other well known fighters were featured on the card as Yves Edwards was looking to return from a knockout loss, as well as Pete Spratt.
– Jason Miller (20-5-0) def. Tim Kennedy (8-2-0) by Unanimous Decision
Miller was looking to avenge a loss to Kennedy, things didn’t start out so well as Kennedy was able to outstrike Miller and take him down in the first round. Miller was able to land a rough elbow to open up a deep gash on the bridge of Kennedy’s nose that would pretty much turn the tide of the fight as Miller was able to ground and pound his way to a victory in the second and third rounds. Miller won by unanimous decision (29-28). In a postfight interview, Miller challenged Mark Cuban (0-0) to a fight, but will have to settle for Frank Trigg instead.
– Frank Trigg (16-6-0) def. Edwin Dewees (34-11-0) by Submission (Kimura) in the 1st round.
In the first of two co-main event bouts, Frank Trigg made really quick work of Edwin Dewees after both fighters landed some solid kicks. Dewees was able to take Trigg down after catching one of his kicks. While working from the bottom, Trigg was able to lock in a kimura from the bottom. The submission looked deep but Dewees gave a thumbs up to show that he was doing fine, until he tried to roll out of the kimura which just locked it in even deeper. Dewees finally submitted and Trigg won very quickly and is looking forward to facing Jason “Mayhem” Miller.
– Yves Edwards def. Alonzo Martinez by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) in the 2nd round.
– Krzysztof Soszynski def. Robert Villegas by Disqualification in the 2nd round.
This was one of the strangest stoppages that I’ve ever seen, but it was justified as Villegas simply ran out of gas (no pun intended) and flopped like Vlade Divac which caused the referee to stop the fight because he didn’t want to fight anymore.
– Pete Spratt def. Tristan Yunker by TKO (Cut) in the 1st round.
– Corey Mahon def. Chris Bowles by Submission (Armbar) in the 2nd round.
– Nissen Osterneck def. Freddie Espiricueta by Submission (Verbal) in the 1st round.
– Jay White def. Patrick Castillo by Submission (Armbar) in the 1st round.
– Liam McCarty def. Jason House by TKO (Cut) in the 3rd round.
– Lee King vs. Marcus Lanier def. Lee King by Submission (Armbar) in the 2nd round.
