The Lamar Dixon Expo Center was filled with mixed martial arts fans from across Louisiana and Texas to see their favorite fighters as they compete for championship title belts.
Local favorite Shawn “Savage” Jordan had a line of fans join him for autographs as he promoted his recent signing with Strikeforce. Jordan took his first fight with the organization on a two days notice and suffered a loss, but came back on the second fight winning by a submission in the second round.
“I am excited about the opportunity to fight with an organized and well-structured organization,” Jordan said. “They have given me fights that are both challenging and exciting.”
His next fight is anticipated to be in January 2012.
There were 14 fights with half of the bouts going to the judges for decision. The amateur championship bouts were entertaining and explosive. Be sure to keep your eyes on these emerging amateur champions.
