Ben Rowland has been a dominant force of nature as of late.
The heavy-handed slugger has been collecting gold all across the regional circuit, which has been an impressive feat for a fighter who got a late start in the game. The 41-year-old knockout artist parlayed a solid amateur career into a red-hot start as a professional as he scored blistering victories in his first two fights as a professional face puncher.
Rowland went for his third consecutive win and another potential title on Saturday night when he faced Ron Fields in the main event at Premier MMA Championships 4 in Cincinnati, OH. Fields had rebounded from a rough patch of his own to collect back-to-back victories, and it was anyone's fight coming into the tilt. That said, once things went live it was Rowland who showed and proved.
The Warrior FC champion came out guns blazing and pushed Fields back with hard shots from the jump. Fields proved he was game by firing back, but a sneaky left hand from Rowland dropped "Killing" to the canvas where he finished off the fight with a barrage of hammer fists. With the win, Rowland picked up another championship belt and kept his undefeated record intact.
