UFC Legend Dan Severn brought another action-packed event to Manassas Park Saturday, where the city's community center was packed with fight fans enjoying the show.
From the ring of the opening bell to the end of the fight, fans were not disappointed as they watched fighters from Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania test each other in the cage.
Kelly Quinn quickly took the back of Pat Morris in the night's first bout, and after a minute of ground-and-pound action, he sank in the rear, naked choke (RNC) to get the submission. If the first bout was quick, then the second was a, "don't blink" affair. Josh Trainor sank in a RNC of his own in just 18 seconds.
The third tilt was a little less lopsided with Wayne Cephas putting in a competitive first round, but getting pounded out in the second by Darryn Messersmith.
The big men took to the cage and Andrew Murray proved that good cardio tops great skills as fight go to deep water. Eric Hughson showed he had better wrestling right from the start, but Murray relentlessly fought back to his feed and defended takedowns and Hughson started to slow his pace. Murray soon took control and won a unanimous decision.
The entertainment continued with impressive performances by Evolve MMA's Tacuma Robinson, Justin "Tangerine" Bartlett and Billy "The Bull" Miller. The main event didn't last long, as Dezmond Chaviera looked as if he wanted to stand and bang, but couldn't stop the takedowns of Gusevio Keisler. Keisler started off with top control and some brutal ground and pound and then wrapped it up in the first round with a rear naked choke.
The evening moved quickly and aside from a few of the fights being one-sided blow outs, the event delivered plenty of action. Dan Severn posed with fans and signed autographs and TUF alumni Zach Davis chatted with fans in between coaching his Evolve MMA teammates.
Northern Virginia fans wanting more MMA won't have to wait long as Operation Octagon returns to Dulles SporstPlex in Sterling for another night of fights on Saturday.
