BILOXI, Miss. (June 27, 2009) Popular Bobby Lashley took super heavyweight Bob The Beast Sapp to the mat right off the opening bell and used his improved ground-and-pound game to win by first-round submission in the main event on the Ultimate Chaos pay-per-view event, presented by Prize Fight Promotions and Fight Force International, last night at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Going up against Bob, Lashley said after the fight, you always expect the big bulls. I had to take him down, cover and pound. The first thing is to win: ground-and-pound to wear the big man down. He has a big punch. I used my ground-and-pound and got out of there.
I got a good shot in the eye and was unable to see, Sapp explained the ending. He got me in the eye. No excuses, He got me down today and controlled it. Give it up to Bobby Lashley.
In a devastating display of power striking, Dutch heavyweight Gilbert The Hurricane Yvel (36-13-3) registered his 31st knockout with five lethal rights on a fallen Pedro The Rock Rizzo (16-9-0) at 2:10 of the first round in the co-feature. I want to move up to (fight) the champions because I want a belt, Yvel explained his next move. Im learning the ground game. What I did tonight was be patient, relax, and kick-off.
Veteran Javier Showtime Vazquez (13-2-0) took pro debuting Mark Kergosian (0-1-0), who was a late replacement for Din Dinyero Thomas, to school with a first-round submission by Guillotine choke only 59-seconds into the opening frame. I want to thank Mark or I wouldnt have had a chance to fight tonight, featherweight Vazquez remarked. I was looking forward to fighting Din. Its unfortunate. Im back! This is my weight class. Very few guys can touch me at 145. That was just a tip of the iceberg.
Hot 21-year-old lightweight prospect Chris The Polish Horodecki (13-1-0) won by submission for the first time, using a rear naked choke to force William The Bull Sryyapai (12-5-0) into a tap-out in round one.
Waachim Native Warrior Spirit Wolf (6-4-0) unleashed a barrage of punches to stop a dazed Brett Cooper (9-5-0) at 1:04 of the opening round of their welterweight fight. I head Brett Cooper signed to fight in 30 days, Spirit Wolf noted. It was all over the news. I said, if he didnt take me serious, hed be in trouble and thats what happened. He never should have looked past me. Ive been fighting tough guys since I started. Ive always told my management to get me the best fighters. Ill fight anybody. Ive gone through wars and its made me a more powerful, spiritual fighter.
Affliction vice president Tom Atencio (2-0-0), 42, turned back the clock and ruined local favorite Randy Heddericks (0-0-1) pro debut in a spirited lightweight match. Atencio won the second-round TKO when Hedderick, 17 years Atencios junior, was unable to continue (broken nose) in the third. Randys a tough kid and I thank him for the fight, Atencio said. Screw Dana White for what he said about you. Anybody who steps in the ring deserves a lot of respect. Win, lose or draw, at least you had the balls. He rocked me a couple of times and decked me.
Mississippi lightweight Brandon Harder (2-0-0) used an arm triangle to submit John Harris (0-2-0) in round two.
James Orso (9-3-0) defeated Danny The Assassin Abbadi by decision for the second time in their welterweight rematch.
Northern Ireland welterweight Colin The Gift McKee (6-3-0) won by way of a series of strikes in the first round against tapping-out Lance Thompson (5-3-0).
