On Saturday night I lost my voice for a bit but before I did I was able to scream my lungs out for nearly six rounds of MMA action as two of my students battled it out inside the cage at the XCC.

In the end, both team Joslin fighters Steve Bingham and Ryan Dickson earned wins for their records, but those victories did not come without some serious challenges.

Steve battled Ryan Thomson, a very talented fighter from London, Ontario’s Adrenalin Training Center in a fight that had them both working hard, each showing some solid abilities on the feet and on the ground. A rear naked choke sealed the deal deep into the fight giving Steve the victory. I was really impressed by Steve’s toughness and composure throughout the entire bout. It was definitely a great match from start to finish that the crowd really enjoyed.

Ryan Dickson took on Josh Taveirne, a skilled fighter from Windsor, Ontario I believe. He had an 8-1 record and it was obvious that he was coming in with great confidence and some very solid wrestling skills. Ryan did great! Scoring some strong take downs, several nice strikes and a tight triangle choke just before the bell sounded to end round two, I really felt that if the fight went to a decision he’d get the nod. Fortunately it didn’t last that long. Midway through the third round Ryan took his opponent down, passed the guard, secured a tight mount and worked his way into applying a rear naked choke that forced his opponent to tap out.

After that I could barely speak — due to all the yelling I did from the corner — but it was all worth it. I was so happy to see all the hard work that Steve and Ryan had put into their training, pay off inside the cage. A bunch of people from Joslin’s and friends of both Ryan and Steve made the three hour trip to cheer the guys on. Thanks to you all for coming out!

Time to train hard for the next one…
