I have amassed some simple equipment over the years, and now I am in a situation where I have some space for doing some exercises! I hope I can get some more mats so I can invite you all over to roll one day. If you want a home gym, keep it simple. I have tried to collect pieces, or make them, over time. I plan on putting in a ceiling mount for a heavy bag for some kickboxing, get some more mats for some rolling, a tornado ball, a jump box, a few free plates, maybe some rope… then I can train how I want!

|1||Muay Thai||Jr Featherweight||Victor Tiapis Poesner’s Muay Thai Vancouver||Mike Knapp, Dirtnap MMA Port Alberni||1:03 Round 1 Knapp was counted out by the referee. Tiapis level of skill outmatched Knapp’s, despite a valiant effort.|
|2||Muay Thai||Super Lightweight||Terrance Viloria, Mendoza Fight Team Surrey||Dwight Wong Iron City Muay Thai||Viloria wins by unanimous referee decision. Viloria’s coach O’Neal Mendoza demanded more aggression out of his fighter after round one and he seemed to get it. Wong as well remains a considerable prospect for Iron City Muay Thai and Coach Jason Fenton was giving a nod to Mendoza after in appreciation of the good showing of both fighters. Wongs sweeps and knee strikes did not trump how the much improved Viloria took the fight and aggression to Wong in rounds 2 and 3.|
|3||MMA||Flyweight||Adam Pronyk, Team Bad Boy Outreach Surrey||Pan Ouen Urban MMA Surrey||Pronyk gets the win by referee stoppage due to ground and pound in round 2 ay 48 seconds. Pronyk already had Ouen in mount and was pounding at the end of round 1 but could not get a finish before the bell. Ouen could control Pronyk for very long before he had to deal with reversals.|
|4||Muay Thai||Super Welterweight||Lute Ganeif WKX Surrey||Colin Butts Dirtnap MMA Port Alberni BC||Ganeif wins by Butts going down and not being able to get up for the referee’s 10 count at 1 minute 28 seconds of round 1, if only by a hair. The lesser experienced Butts, originally slated for an MMA fight for the card, was outmatched by team WKX.|
|5||Muay Thai||Jr. Featherweight||Tyler Nicholson, Urban MMA Surrey||Francis Tiapis, Poesner’s Muay Thai Vancouver||Nicholson had a much greater reach and spent round 1 playing it safe and assessing Tiapis. Nicholson had a strategy based heavily on kicks and of course due to his reach advantage, used that greatly to his favor. Tiapis couldn’t get inside on Nicholson and had to watch the time go by in the fight without many opportunities to return the aggression.|
|6||Muay Thai||Super Lightweight||Siavosh Fard SKA Burnaby||Kurtis Waterson, Carlson Gracie MMA Maple Ridge BC||By unanimous decision, Team Dordar prospect Siavosh fard showed exceptional aggression right from the staredown. Waterson did change up things in round two but Fard was always in control of the action to the end of the match. Fard controlled Waterson with distance, and was never threatened even though Waterson did a very good job of closing off the ring in round 2.|
|7||MMA||Featherweight||Blake Dutra Team Bad Boy Outreach Surrey BC||Matt Shannon Fight Team 604 Burnaby||Round 1, 60 seconds. Shannon was standing up and couldn’t avoid giving up his back.|
|8||Muay Thai||Super Welterweight||Dan Jervie, Universal MMA Vancouver||John Fuller, Urban MMA Surrey||For once, the kickboxers went at it quickly at the start of round one. While they had turns at exchanges and good ones, Fuller could not return blows any longer after 1:53 of round 2, when the referee stopped the fight. Gas was a factor later into round two for both fighters.|
|9||Muay Thai||Super Welterweight||Shelley Strachan Knockout Muay Thai Courtenay BC||Becca Macdonald Iron City Muay Thai Vancouver||Strachan got a knee strike to the jaw of her opponent in round one causing a knockdown. Judges unanimous decision.|
|10||Muay Thai||Super Welterweight||Pat Alec North Shore Fight Team North Vancouver BC||Adeiel Arias Richmond Martial Arts Richmond||Adeiel Arias was unable to continue after 1:44 of round 1. Pat Alec came in showing as a much more capable fighter can could easily deal with his opponent’s intense flurries of punches and charging ahead.|
|11||MMA||Lightweight||Wael Gharieb, Team Bad Boy Outreach Surrey||Jared Moen, Independent, Langley BC||Referee stoppage at 16 seconds of round one. Moen did not return blows and turned away from the fight.|
|12||Muay Thai||Cruiserweight||‘Ricky’ Rakinrah Keohavong WKX Surrey||Marc Castro, Nak Muay Duncan BC||Marc Castro lasted 3 rounds against Ricky K. This is a lot more than most people last against him. Ricky K kept cutting off Castro and pummeling him, and made a nice sweep on Castro towards the end of round 3. Judges unanimous decision.|
|13||MMA||Light Heavyweight||Jeremiah Humphries, Universal MMA Vancouver||Herbert Moon, Independent||Referee stoppage due to rear mount blows to the head that were unreturned. 1:35, round 1.|
|14||MMA||Welterweight||Dustin Greentree, Kamikaze Punishment, Edmonton Alberta||Cody Slater, Crisis MMA, Olympia Washington||Referee stoppage at 1:25 of round 3. In round 1, neither fighter went to the ground, preferring a clinch range battle with lots of punching. Round two was when they went to the ground properly, and The fight was stopped briefly for what at first looked like a major blood loss by Slater, but later proved to be minor.|
|15||MMA||Heavyweight||Rob Nowicki, Diamond MMA Kamloops||Kyle Fortier Wachal’s Martial Arts Surrey||Nowicki had Fortier under mount and was pounding out until the end of round 1. Round two would have spelled the end for Fortier, but further exchanges depleted these big fighters. Nowicki took Fortier down with a vanilla hara goshi hip toss and Fortier had to tap out with a hurt back. Sometimes MMA is about surprises like this.|
|16||MMA||AMA Bantamweight Title Match||Oliver Evansher, Universal MMA, Vancouver||Bradley Nicholson, Urban MMA Surrey||Evansher would get the title after 4 full rounds of insane action. Nicholson showed incredible pluck in defense from the ground and had Evansher in mount at various points in the tweaked battle. Evansher was able to pick up Nicholson physically and slam him on the mat with several reprises. Judges would score it 40-38, 39-37, and 39-37.|
|17||Muay Thai||Junior Welterweight||Tom Mattu, WKX Surrey||Oli McKiernan, Iron City Muay Thai Vancouver||Mattu and McKiernan had a high energy exchange between them.

Coach Jason Fenton said they looked high and low for a fight but could only get Mattu.|
|18||MMA||AMA Middleweight Title||265 lbs, representing Ekkert Colin ‘king kong’ Campbell||Kyle ‘Warmaker’ Warman, Gracie Barra Kelowna BC 185||Open weight 17 seconds round 1 win against Campbell despite an 80 lbs weight advantage.
