    Lavar "Big" Johnson v Sean Souza



November 8, 2008 - Fresno CA - Once again, Fresno proved to the MMA world that it is not willing/ready to support an MMA promotion. With a sub-par attendance in both of the last 2 shows in as many weeks, Fresno decided not to show up. Wargod's Promotions put on a hell of a show with a great setup, lighting, video and the works and not to mention the exceptional fight card. UFC fighter Roger Huerta was also in attendance to witness the fights. All of the 8 fights with the exception of 1 or 2 could have gone either way, Wargod's had some last minute changes but were able to put together a great show. I just wish more people were there to see it. Next time out tell your friends and family about these shows because sooner or later we will be regretting it if any of them decide not to come back to town. That would just be sad.


Fight Breakdowns:

John Michael Reedy v Phillip Golff

Opening the night of fighting, Buhawe's John Michael Reedy stepped in the cage with Phillip Golff. Reedy on his second fight after having back surgery defeated Phillip Golff with an arm triangle at 2:09 into the first round.

Johnny Mancilla v Tommy Vargas

Local star high school wrestler Tommy Vargas and Johnny Mancilla went the distance in this three round fight. Both fighters gave each other way too much respect as not much action proceeded after the opening bell. Tommy Vargas wins a decision over Mancilla

James Cook v Raymond Castro

After the main event fight was scratched between James "The Professor" Cook and Stockton's Isaac de Jesus, I was a little disappointed as it was the fight I was looking forward to the most. But Wargods found a decent replacement for Cook in Raymond Castro. Both fighters exchanged kicks early in the fight but it was Cook's knees that did most of the damage. James landed a right knee to Castro's abdomen that made Raymond grimace in pain for the remainder of the fight. Castro, feeling he was losing the fight, then rushed James in the final seconds of the first round but Cook was able to use some bull fighting matador skills and used Castro's momentum against him. James got Castro on the ground and ensued with pounding to Raymond's head. With one second remaining in the round the referee stopped the bout. James was declared the winner by TKO at 2:59 into the first round.

Ben Holscher v Walt Hughes

Ben Holscher of Camp Buhawe seemed to be the crowd favorite as he had the entire crowd on its feet as he was introduced and they didn’t seem to sit down during the fight either. Ben dominated on the ground as he easily took Walt down early in all three rounds and kept Hughes there most of the fight. Ben Holscher won his professional debut by unanimous decision 30-27.

Brandon Cash v Liron Wilson

In what started off as an exciting fight, Brandon Cash of Camp Buhawe and Liron Wilson tapered off towards the end. Brandon Cash dominated his opponent in all three rounds but most of the second and all of the third round was just awful to watch as both fighters conditioning needed some great improvement. Besides the telegraphed punches by both opponents the fight was still somewhat entertaining.

Dustin “The Rooster” Arden v Joey Armstrong

The Rooster wins again against a very well matched opponent Joey Armstrong, who was coming off of a 5 fight winning streak. Dustin Arden dominated the stand-up game as Joey Armstrong unsuccessfully worked leg kicks that did little to know damage. The judges gave two rounds to Arden and one to Armstrong as Dustin took the split decision victory.

Marcus Levesseur v Brian Cobb

Brian Cobb the current # 1 ranked fighter at 155 lbs on BloodyMayhem.com and PFC title holder at the same weight squared off against storied college wrestler turned MMA fighter Marcus Levesseur of Camp Buhawe. In the most exciting fight of the night, both fighters went back and forth attacking each other in the first round. Marcus won the first round on the ground by taking down Cobb on a few occasions as well out-striking him in the stand-up. Brian Cobb’s corner had some great advice for him during the break as he opened up the second round with a different look in his eyes. After landing a few solid punches, Cobb took Levesseur to the ground where he worked for position. Cobb was able to connect on some big strikes that left Marcus covering up and hurt. Cobb seemed like he knew his opponent was hurt and went in for a submission, after a near guillotine choke, Brian quickly maneuvered himself to Marcus’ back and worked in a rear naked choke that finished the fight off. Brian Cobb retains his # 1 ranking as he submits Marcus Levesseur at 2:35 into the second round.

Lavar “Big” Johnson v Sean Souza

Lavar Johnson put those naysayers to rest as he man handled his Hawaiian opponent Sean Souza. Both fighters stared each other down in the opening face-off setting it up for an interesting bout but once the bell sounded, it was “Black Superman”. Lavar controlled the fight with his powerful striking and Souza just had no counter to offer and I don’t think kryptonite would have helped him either. Lavar took Souza to the ground and from side-control he let loose a storm of elbows and punches. When Souza was finally able to get up he looked visibly hurt as his legs wobbled, Johnson capitalized by connecting over 15 unanswered blows to Sean’s head until the last one finally knocked out Souza. With the win at 2:51 seconds in the first round, Lavar “Big” Johnson is the first and new Wargod’s Heavyweight Champion. Congratulations Lavar on the win.
