Aggressive Combat Championship 15 delivered once more in front of their sixth sold out crowd. ACC 15 show cased 14 fights on June 25, 2016. The fans witnessed four title bouts, five K1 fights and nine MMA bouts. Luis Gonzalez and Jillian DeCoursey take home belts for ECU BJJ. In addition, Dan Fazzino and Carolos Rodriquez won titles as well. ACC 15 took place at the Queens Theater in Flushing Meadow Park, in Corona, Queens, New York. Doors swung open at 6 p.m. and the fights kicked-off promptly at 7 p.m. est.
Aggressive Combat Championship 15’s main event between Luis Gonzalez and Ron Leon lived up to the hype that hovered leading up to the fight. Through the first two rounds, Leon made it a fan favorite fight with his scrambling. Gonzalez and Leon didn’t waste anytime feeling each other out before swinging for the fences. Leon, whom fights out of Kai Next level MMA, tried making the main event into a brawl as he launched hay-makers. The East Coast United BJJ fighter, Gonzalez engaged in the brawl for a bit, but showed great awareness and returned to his strategy. In the third round, Gonzalez clipped Leon in the temple, sending him to the canvas. Gonzalez defeated Leon in the third round via TKO.
While in the co-main event, Jillian DeCoursey battled Marisa Messer-Belenchia through three rounds of clinch grinding action. These two women showed up to fight. DeCoursey finally met an opponent that controlled her against the cage for nearly the entire bout. While in the clinch, the former 115-pound champion landed numerous knees to Messer-Belenchia’s body. While out of the clinch, Messer-Belenchia displayed strong striking as she delivered an abundant of shots straight down the barrel to DeCoursey’s chin.
The Ultimate MMA fighter defended DeCoursey’s takedown’s as well. When the official decision was announced it was a split decision in favor of DeCoursey, it left the Ultimate MMA camp unhappy and many scratching their heads. A rematch between these two women would be a great solution and way to hush any critics of that decision. DeCoursey defeated Messer-Belenchia via split decision.
Dan Fazzino of Black Hole BJJ showed up to fight in his light heavyweight title bout against the champion, Dami Powerson. Fazzino showed off his skilled grappling-game when he slapped on a leg triangle that ended the bout with only 29-seconds remaining in the first round. Fazzino was applying pressure on Powerson against the fence. Powerson scored a takedown landing in full-guard. It didn’t take long for Fazzino to swing his legs over Powerson’s head, locking in a triangle and squeeze his opponent to the finish. Dan Fazzino defeated Dami Powerson via submission in the first round.
Kai Next Level strawweight, Destiny Quinones, over powered her opponent on her way to a finish. Quinones threw Anastasia Bruce to the ground and immediately slid into full-mount. The Aggressive Combat Championship strawweight contender began hammering down on Bruce until USMTA referee Phoenix Alexus saw enough. Quinones earned a first round finish via TKO at 1:51.
Fight of the Night honors started off as a clear decision, but quickly became a blur once the final six bouts happened. My MMA News presents Fight of the Night honors to two bouts & four fighters. The final fight on the under card, a 145-pound match-up between Neil Gonzalez of East Coast MMA and Noah Donawa, of Kai Next Level. These two fighters delivered a great three-round battle.
The second FOTN is handed to the main event between Luis Gonzalez and Ron Leon. The last bout of the evening lived up to all the hype and both fighters were not afraid to backup their pre-fight talk.

A back-and-forth battle through two and a half rounds before Gonzalez tags Leon for the finishing touches.
