Ohio Combat League 24 results: Kinzig, Mattox get big stoppages; Bray, Piria put on fight of the year candidate

Ohio Combat League 24 went down at Hollywood Casino in Columbus, Ohio on Friday night, in conjunction with the Arnold Sports Festival.

The event featured the pro debuts of four former OCL amateur champions, and the inaugural amateur super lightweight title was also on the line.

In the main event, heavyweight Cameron Kinzig (2-0) survived an early knockdown to come back and earn a first round TKO stoppage over Matt Adams (0-1). Adams landed a big right hand and swarmed on the ground early in the fight, using elbows and a rear naked choke attempt that Kinzig fought. They made it back to their feet, with Adams attempting to get another takedown. Kinzig landed a big knee to the body and dropped him with a counter left hook, finishing the fight with a couple more shots before the referee stepped in.

Watch that highlight below:

In the co-main event, Jaden Mattox (1-0) put on an impressive performance utilizing big left elbows in a clinch against the cage, eventually dropping Nick Mondelli (0-2) with more vicious elbows that split him open before the referee called a stop to the action just 52 seconds into the first round.

The pro portion of the card kicked off with a fight to remember, as Skyler Bray (1-0) took home a close split decision victory over Gabe Piria (0-1). Both fighters were former OCL amateur champions, and they put on a show for the sold-out crowd for 15 minutes. Bray utilized heavy leg kicks throughout the fight, and it was apparent in between both rounds that Piria was favoring his lead leg and could barely stand on it. Piria looked for head kicks throughout, and both fighters were bruised and blood at the end of the fight. The difference in the fight was a knockdown from Bray in the second round, as well as a timely takedown in the final minute to eke out the decision on two of the three judges’ scorecards.

In the amateur main event, Max Metzgar (7-0) remained unbeaten by utilizing his wrestling pedigree to force Graham Hunter (5-1) into deep waters for the first time. Metzgar controlled the grappling throughout and took home a unanimous decision win. The fight took place on Metzgar’s 26th birthday, and after the win he announced his intentions to turn pro.
