Mark Kerr ends five-fight slide
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Mark Kerr emerged victorious for the first time in over seven years, submitting Stephen Gavin via keylock at 1:19 of the first round Wednesday night at Xcess Fighting. The 39-year-old heavyweight, who fought for the UFC and PRIDE promotions from 1997-2004, last won in 2000 at PRIDE 10 against an inexperienced Igor Borisov. In 1997, Kerr appeared to be destined to become an MMA great. He kicked off his MMA career winning three fights in one night at the World Vale Tudo Championship 3 and then following up with two straight UFC tournament wins at UFC 14 and 15. He cashed in on his success five months later by signing with PRIDE, where he would call home for almost six years.
