MAYA�3, 2008A�- ‘Hard Knocks Cage Fights’

A�Mike Putnam,A�trained by MMAA�Coach, Bruce Lombard, of Titan Fitness in State College, PAA�won his amateur MMA debuwith a split decision victory(29-28,28-29,29-28) over previously unbeatenA�Ohio nativeA�Josh Baker, in the 145lb weight division.A� The two strong willedA�fighters went back and forth for three rounds with noA�clear advantage for either fighter standing or on the ground.A� In the first round Putnam almost got caught in a choke in Josh’s guard, but he cleared the submission attempt and threw down some effective ground and pound as he cleared Baker’s guard.A� Baker landed a few heavy punches to the head ofA�his opponentA�in the second round, butA�they did not seem to phase Putnam’s attack.A� The third round was a back and forth battle as well, but in the end, I think the judges decisionA�came down to Putnam’s control in the clinch game.A� MikeA�controlled his tough opponent in the clinchA�throughout the first two rounds keeping him pinned against the cage and landing many effectiveA�knees.A�

ThisA�event was promoted by ‘Hard Knocks Cage Fights’ and was held in St. Clairsville, OH.A� TheA� event arena was sold out as over 2,500 MMA fans enjoyed 15 cage fights.
