Alliance MMA brought Shogun Fights: Florida live to FloCombat Saturday featuring Sean Brady vs. Colton Smith and more. It didn't disappoint. Full results here.
Alliance MMA presented Shogun Fights: Florida live on FloCombat Saturday night, giving mixed martial arts fans at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and those watching at home an action-packed night of fights.
In the main event, undefeated CFFC welterweight champ Sean Brady faced off against The Ultimate Fighter winner Colton Smith.
Both men began the fight feeling things out before Smith rushed in and engaged in the clinch. The fighters were battling for position until Brady scored the first takedown of the fight. Smith was able to immediately get back to his feet, where the jostling in the clinch continued.
Brady scored another takedown late in the opening round to ride out top position until the bell.
Brady threatened in Round 2 with a guillotine after once again getting Smith to the mat, but he was unable to force the tap. Smith put the pressure on Brady with a submission attempt of his own, fighting for an unsuccessful kimura.
After a second kimura attempt from Smith, Brady was able to escape and take Smith’s back, where he briefly began looking for a rear-naked choke until both men returned to their feet and finished the round in the clinch.
The third round was much of the same, with some early clinch work until Brady was able to smother Smith on the ground. As the final frame was winding down, Brady began to pick up his output and was overwhelming Smith on the mat while holding top position until the final bell.
For his efforts, he took home a unanimous decision victory and moved one step closer to the UFC, improving to 8-0 as a pro.
Also on the card was a ridiculous self-knockout and plenty of knockouts and submissions to keep fans buzzing throughout.
