What a night of fights from Pinnacle FC it was. Every contest delivered on action and intensity reminiscent of the very best the sport has to offer. While finishes were hard to come by, the competition more than made up for it.

In the main event, local favorite Khama Worthy defeated a game Mike Roberts in a fist-flying affair. From bell to bell, the fight was a slugfest, but one that saw more technique than grit. The rangy Worthy found a home for his right hand quickly and switched from the body to the head like a smooth operator. The bout went the distance, with Worthy taking home a unanimous decision victory.

In the co-main event, Joshua Fremd took the stage against Michigan's Robert Gidron. Despite the crowd weighing heavily in Fremd's favor, the fight was not as kind to him. Positional dominance allowed Gidron to work his top game and find control at every turn. The aggression from Fremd became Gidron's greatest ally, and once more, the decision mirrored that, as Gidron earned the unanimous nod from the judges. 

That wasn't all. The amateurs were in full force at Pinnacle FC, where four title fights were on the docket, and they all delivered on madness.

With perhaps the loudest contingent of fans in the building, Fadi Shuman edged out a decision thanks to the mind-altering pressure he placed upon his opponent, Alex Johnston. 

We also had the very first Pinnacle FC female champion crowned, as Brigid Chase found her foe's arm and took it home with her.
