ProElite held another successful event in the beautiful state of Hawaii as Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove (14-9) dominated all three rounds in his main event tilt with Japanese MMA legend Ikuhisa “Minowaman” Minowa (51-33-8). With effective stand up and picture perfect back control, Grove took the score 30-27 on all three judges’ score cards.

“I put my own pressure on myself. Minowa has very dangerous leg locks and I know if I gave him the opportunity, he would have broken my leg.” Grove said about going the distance in his bout.

In the co main event of the evening, Sara McMann (5-0) continued her dominance in the 135-pound women’s weight class with her unanimous decision over Hitomi Akano (18-9). McMann used her extensive wrestling pedigree to complete some cage shaking slams throughout the bout...

I dunno Shane, I thought it was pretty good. Or as good as it was going to get with the talent they had at their disposal.

hopefully if Grove beats Jay Silva next month and looks good, the UFC will think about re-signing him.

The first fight on the night here. He was so pissed off about getting knocked out that his body instinctually flipped the guy the bird. Awesome.

His win was as dull as they come and he must have spent 10 minutes trying to finish the RNC without success and even with BJ Penn shouting instructions. Certainly not going to make Dana sit up and pay attention IMO.
