BOUT#9: ANTHONY WERNER (DEBUT) VS JAMES REED (11-13) PRO 145LBS

RD#1: The co main event of the evening is our first professional bout of the evening with Anthony Werner making his debut against veteran James Reed. Reed comes out early with a low kick and a superman punch off the cage. This pushes Werner back and he lands a big kick across the midsection of Werner and then finishes with a takedown. Reed works ground and pound from inside the guard of Werner but gets too high in the guard and almost gets caught in an armbar. The sly vet in Reed won’t have it though as he slides out of it and takes the back of Werner and sinks the rear naked choke in simultaneously. Moments later Werner is forced to tap out to the choke.
