The latest rendition of Bristol Marunde's Reign Fighting Championships played out on March 3rd at the 7 Cedars Casino in Sequim WA with a total of 15 bouts taking place, 13 amateur and 2 professional, featuring local Olympic Pennisula fighters as well as fighters from across the state and Idaho as well.


The main event was a 185 lb matchup between debuting pros Carl Edwards of Full Circle MMA and George Mindus of the Irish Hit Squad. Mindus came in with a flying knee which Edwards easily thwarted, catching Mindus and taking him straight to the canvas. Mindus defended from the bottom but Edwards was able to land knees to the body while fending off Mindus' sub attempts, before breaking free and throwing down some nice punches. Edwards got Mindus' back midway through the round and looked to finish with a Rear Naked Choke but Mindus fought it off for a full minute before reversing Edwards and landing strikes from top position. Edwards quickly reversed and the fight moved up the fence to standing position. Edwards got a nice takedown but Mindus locks on a tight triangle from bottom. It looks dangerous but the bell sounds. Great first round! In the 2nd, Edwards quickly closed with punches, pushing Mindus to the cage. Edwards scoops up Mindus for another nice takedown. The fight worked its way to the feet again before another Edwards takedown. Edwards acts as though he's about to posture up and throw strikes, but quickly goes the opposite direction, grabbing Mindus' ankle and securing a lightning fast Achilles Lock at 1:07 of the 2nd. Impressive first pro bout from Edwards.


In a 150 lb Pro catch weight bout, Colby Hoffman representing Bad Company MMA faced Full Circle MMA's Mike Thomas. Hoffman came out firing punches that forced Thomas to go low for a leg. Hoffman immediately latched on a guillotine choke which Thomas patiently worked his way out of after about a minute. Thomas looked to land strikes but Hoffman, working from the bottom, transitioned to a fight ending armbar at 1:57 of the first round. Excellent submission.


The consensus fight of the night belonged to the amateur matchup between Hybrid MMA's Andrew Ramm and Reid Hazelbaker from Moscow ID. These two combatants stood toe to toe thoughout much of the first and third rounds, throwing hard leather and looking for the knockout. The 2nd round had both fighters on the ground working for the submission finish. At the end of the nine minutes, it was Ramm who got the nod from the judges in an entertaining crowd pleaser.
