RITC 69 – Results Calnin named Fighter of the Night


An ethusiastic Casa Grande crowd showed up for a sizzling night of RITC action. 39 year old Real Estate Developer Bob Calnin dominated round 1 with solid ground and pound and then submitted his opponent by rear naked choke in round 2 to earn Fighter of the Night ( FOTN ) honors. In the Main event, locals Richie Gould and Herb Garcia had the crowd on their feet with some brutal back and forth action. After losing round 1, veteran Garcia pulled off a huge slam then worked hard on a nasty key lock before winning by choke late in round 2.

Candidates for FOTN honors were Jeremiah Navarro, Arturo Segovia, Johnny Saenz, Adam Roland, Joseph Howard, Richie Hightower, Eric Gross and Herb Garcia.
