Xtreme MMA 3 got underway this weekend, and on hand were a few noteworthy competitors and familiar faces.
First, heavyweight prospect took a decisive first round victory over UFC veteran Soa Palelei. Cormier put Soa away with strikes early to keep his unbeaten record intact. Now 6-0, Daniel Cormier is a face larger promotions will be eyeing.
UFC veteran, and always unpredictable Mike Kyle picked up his fourth consecutive victory. Like Cormier, Kyle utilized strikes to put Stephen Oliver away in the first frame of their scheduled three round affair. Mike Kyle has now fought five times this year, and of course, one of those bouts ended in controversy.
Unfortunately for longtime veteran Yuki Sasaki, success was not a part of his evening. The Japanese staple was knocked unconscious in the final round of his bout with Xavier Lucas, who’s been looking to rebuild his prospect status.
