The Cellar Gym team brought two Muay Thai fighters and three MMA fighters to Ignite Fights’ Mecca XX fight event on November 11th in Bloomington, MN. We went 3-2 on the night, with some great performances and exciting finishes!
Spencer Anderson put on a strong performance in his Muay Thai bout, demonstrating excellent control of the pace. However, he faced challenges when it came to closing the distance and landing effective strikes. Despite the hurdles, he went the distance, lasting all three rounds, and gained valuable experience and insights despite losing a unanimous decision. Back to the gym to work on those aspects and come back even stronger!
Grady Pesch secured his win with a second-round TKO. He skillfully evaded kicks, landed his own precise low kicks, and dominated the clinch, culminating in a well-executed knee finish.
Kendall Sandifer secured a unanimous decision victory in his MMA fight with his excellent boxing skills, showcasing the ability to stick and move and get off the tracks when needed. Nice job!
Xavier Rosenbloom made quite a statement! He won the fight in the second round with a North-South choke. He utilized excellent range and feinting skills, which set up his takedowns beautifully. Even when faced with a tight Guillotine attempt, Xavier’s determination paid off as he fought through to secure the win.
Bobby Lee faced a tough and game opponent in the main event of the evening. Bobby had a great first two rounds; unfortunately, his game plan wasn’t enough to outpace his opponent, and he got stuck under a barrage of ground strikes in the fourth round, losing by TKO. We will improve a few small mistakes and get him back in the cage soon.
