Tennessee's best mixed martial artists met Georgia's finest at Valor Fights vs. Conflict MMA: Worlds Collide, LIVE Saturday, July 22, on FloCombat.
Featuring some of the nation's top MMA prospects in American Top Team's Lindsey "Sweet Tea" Jones, Luis Pena, Kobe Wall, and more, this event brought the heat from start to finish.
Making this even more intriguing for the prospect watch, Pena and Wall squared off in the main event, meaning somebody's "0" had to go.
The main event was all about Luis Pena.
The former wrestling standout turned undefeated mixed martial artist continued to showcase his incredible skills, and he straight up put it on the previously undefeated Wall in the night's main event.
Using his superior range, diversity, and grappling, Pena dominated the contest from start to finish, eventually securing a fight-ending kimura in Round 3.
A colorful personality with a well-rounded game, Pena moves to 4-0 as a pro and will likely be on the shortlist of lightweight contenders making the leap to the big leagues. He wins Valor Fights lightweight gold tonight, and it's well-deserved.
In the night's co-main event, 2-0 American Top Team representative Lindsey "Sweet Tea" Jones put on another perfect performance.
Hugely hyped, Jones represents one of the best young welterweights on the planet, and he showed why once more at Worlds Collide. Early in the fight, Jones lunged through the air in search of a flying knee but wound up on his back.
He put on a clinic immediately, cinching the fight-ending armbar in short order.
He moves to 3-0 with the victory and will find himself taking a massive step up for his next outing.
Also on the night, undefeated 18-year-old mega prospect Chase Boutwell earned a unanimous decision victory over previously undefeated Hunter Thomas, adding another "W" to his resume and securing amateur bantamweight gold in the process. Boutwell continues to showcase improvements, and it seems to be only a matter of time before he moves pro and starts earning some cheddar for his efforts.
