WCC Results and Play by Play
Allow me to be the first to tell you that tonight’s WCC IV event was a complete and total success from start to finish. The venue was standing room only and the crowd was great. If this is what Pittsburgh MMA looks like in the years to come, we are in great shape as a community. Below are the amateur play by play and results. I have videos of Jimmy Cerra vs. Dave Crockett along all of the pro bouts that I will put out tomorrow.
Check out the rest after the jump:
Steven Jones Vs. Shawn Downs
Rd:1 Jones opens with a jab. Downs Shoots and drives him right to the fence. Hes working for a single and gets it. He hits the ground and passes immediately. Jones rolls for the knee and uses it to sweep nicely. Jones moves to an unusual half guard where Downs leg is stuck in a figure four position with Jones on top. A stray punch hits Downs high on the forehead which is technically illegal, but hey it’s a cage fight I guess. Downs works his way out at the bell.
