SBG Idaho Fighters Win Again
Jesse Brock & Scott Thometz Win At RFA 27
Last Saturday, two of Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho’s top pro fighters competed at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 27 – the first nationally televised MMA event to ever take place in Idaho. The event, at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, was a momentous occasion for MMA in the state, and a wonderful showcase of the talent present at Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho. The event also featured a Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho fighter in an earlier amateur contest – Jordan Ransom lost by unanimous decision in an close contest against Paul Crawford.
SBG Idaho’s Scott Thometz vs Daniel Swain
Under two months ago, Scott Thometz returned to the cage after a year off and picked up an impressive ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus-earning victory at Front Street Fights 5, winning by unanimous decision over three grueling rounds. This time around, the Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho Coach barely gave fans and judges enough time to find their seats before knocking out his opponent Daniel Swain in-front of a national audience. Thometz caught Swain with a right hook after a brief opening exchange, dropping his opponent and securing victory with ground strikes after a mere thirty seconds of the first round!
SBG Idaho’s Jesse Brock vs Joe Murphy
SBG Idaho Coach Jesse Brock extended his current win streak to five fights in a little over a year with another impressive, unanimous decision victory in the main event of the RFA card. Brock treated the national audience to a tough three rounds which saw the Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho veteran exert his dominance through superior takedowns and a brutal top game, despite picking up a nasty cut in the second round. It is his fourth main-event win in a row at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, with this RFA win coming after three wins headlining events for the Front Street Fights promotion. It provides further evidence, this time nationally, that Brock & Combat Fitness can be considered firmly at the forefront of MMA in Idaho and the Northwest region.
Congratulations to Jesse Brock, Scott Thometz and the whole Combat Fitness/SBG Idaho team for their incredible achievement! For more information, and to watch videos of the above fights, visit www.combatfitness.com
