Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm en route to a 2nd Rd TKO of Chris Ensley
NW Fighting held 'Young Guns V' Jan 12th & had a slew of up and coming amateurs and pros, plus a few veterans fighters throw down. 17 fights in total took place in a long night of MMA action, culminating in a main event that featured Strikeforce veteran, Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm, rematching with Chris Ensley. Beerbohm won their first fight by 1st Rd armbar in May of 2012, and he came out on top once again via a 2nd Rd TKO at Young Guns V. Beerbohm has reeled off 5 straight wins after suffering 2 Strikeforce losses in early 2011 and is now 20-2 as a professional.
In other pro action, Josh Rettinghouse threw everything but the kitchen sink at a tough John Martinez and eventually prevailed getting Martinez to tap to a RNC in the 3rd round of their Bantamweight matchup. \
Lightweight Joey Becker subbed Michael Craig by 1st Rd RNC.
Jacob Harkness pulled off a sweet Von Flue choke of Dominic Rivera
in the 1st Rd of their middleweight bout.
Two amateur titles were fought on the evening, the first which had Dylan Morgan getting the 135 lb belt via a 2nd Rd TKO of Marcus Ramos.
In the other title fight for the 125 lb belt, David "Bubba" Ahto submitted Soloman Jones by Triangle Choke in the first round.
