Co-headlining the event is a light-heavyweight affair between no. 5 ranked former title challenger Anthony Smith (36-17) and no. 7 ranked fellow finisher Johnny Walker (20-7).

Our feature fight of the evening came in the welterweight division between former SG welterweight champion Daniel Rodriguez (17-4) and former Cage Warriors welterweight champion Ian Garry (12-0).

Rodriguez came into the bout having lost to Neil Magny in his most recent appearance following a four-fight win streak from 2021 to 2022, while Garry had gone 4-0 thus far into his promotional tenure.

Official Result: Ian Garry def. Daniel Rodriguez via TKO (head kick & punches) at 2:57 of round one

Garry looks sharp on the feet in this fight, as he always does; his boxing was on point and he did a good job of baiting Rodriguez into his counters. Garry lands a beautiful right head kick midway through the opening round that hurts and drops Rodriguez.

From here, it only took some ground-and-pound immediately following for him to secure the stoppage victory.

Ian Garry is a seriously talented young man, no one’s ever done that to Daniel Rodriguez before.
