Proving Grounds Amateur Cage Fighting presented by Warrior Camp – May 10th 2019 – Liberty Lake, WA – The Hub Event Center

This event happened a few weeks ago, but due to business travel I am just now getting an opportunity to release this post.  I was blessed and honored with the opportunity to do LIVE results for such an amazing group of people in Warrior Camp.  Pablo and Rose Alfonso, alongside their team and Joel Thomas are extremely professional.  Every time I go to their event, they are always updating something from the previous event or adding more sponsors.  I believe in CANI (Constant And Never-ending Improvement) and I believe that is what the Proving Grounds event are all about.  

Like previous Proving Grounds events, this was a stacked card with amazing match-ups that made for amazing fights! If you haven’t been to one of their events yet, you are missing out! Do yourself a favor and go check out their next show on July 19th! It’s going to be awesome! 

Announcer Michael Smith started the event with honoring local fighter Bryan Romane who recently passed away.  Michael called Bryan Romane to the cage for one last time and had a very moving and powerful moment of silence.  The night also raised funds for Bryan Romane’s daughter.  

HERE is a highlight video of the 12 fight event from May 10th, 2019

When I saw the fight card and noticed the Main Event featured Dana Laverance V.S. Jose Ferreri, I knew this fight would be awesome!  I have seen both of these warriors go to battle in the cage before and they both bring high energy and a toughness that is rare at the amateur level.  Though the fight fight didn’t go past the 1st round, it was still a very exciting fight.  Jose Ferreri seemed to come out with a goal of finishing the fight early and though him and Dana went toe to toe for a brief moment it was Ferreri who got the TKO finish in the 1st round.

The Co-Main Event featured a good friend of mine in Paco Mora (who’s son Matteo also fought on the card) V.S. Brandon Hacker in a heavy weight bout.  They both came out swinging with Paco taking a hard shot that actually KOd him, however Brandon Hacker didn’t listen to Referee Randy Silva (BEST referee in the NW) and continued to drop hammer fists on a slowly recovering Paco Mora so Randy did what he does best and did what he had to do to protect fighters.  He put Brandon into a rear naked choke almost putting Brandon to sleep.  It was a little chaotic in the cage for a few moments as Referee and Fighter Mark Coates came in to help Randy.  Not sure why Brandon did this, but I hope that he doesn’t get to fight at another event that I am at again, it was extremely unprofessional of him.  Paco Mora was awarded the win after Brandon was ultimately disqualified.  I say Submission Of The Night Award goes to Referee Randy Silva!
