WILMINGTON, Mass. – Not much time was wasted before both the co-main event and the main event came to a halt on Friday night at World Championship Fighting’s WCF 4. The total time of each bout combined was a mere 31 seconds. Yet the fans in attendance still left the venue buzzing about the event without much turmoil.
It certainly wasn’t long after the bell that Ultimate Fighter Season 1 competitor Sam Hoger began his celebration. Both he and his opponent, Jason Dolloff came out eager to fight. Hoger managed to land a few kicks early on before they clinched. From there, he used some dirty boxing to land a heavy blow that dropped his opponent to his knees. He quickly spun around and gained back control where he hammered Doloff with several right hands until the referee called the bout. With the win, Hoger gained his first victory in nearly three years and started his path back to the big stage.
Dan Bonnell seems to have had the winning formula on his hands for some time now with yet another big win. This featherweight match-up had the makings to be fight of the night, but it appeared that Bonnell had different plans.
As both fighters circled, he threw a right hand that seemed to buckle Joe Cushman’s knees a bit, but they continued to feel each other out. Seconds later from the clinch, Bonnell displayed some effective dirty boxing of his own. A few punches rocked Cushman sending him to his knees. He immediately bounced back up, but Bonnell gained control of Cushman’s head again and continued to land clean shots. Cushman dropped to his back this time and Bonnell followed him, peppering him with punches before the referee stepped in. That was the fourth win in a row for Bonnell, who has continued to impress fans with solid victories.LINK
