Tyler East def. Prince McLean via TKO (Punches) at 1:33 in Round 1
Jamie Yager def. Willie Parks via Submission (Guillotine) at :21 in Round 2

Jacob Clark def. Junie Browning via Submission (Strikes) at 4:18 in Round 1

Gracing our television screens on this Saturday evening was MMA Fight Pit: “Genesis”, which followed in the grand tradition of Moosin, the World Combat Championship, Martial Arts Reality Superfighting, Shine Fights and countless other one-shot fight events that passed laughably into the night.  There were TUF almosts and not-quites, fighters past their expirations dates, and a bunch of unknowns best left unknown. 

TUF 8 washout Junie Browning apparently needed money, because here he was seven pounds overweight for what should’ve been a lightweight contest against late-replacement Jacob Clark. After a good start, his gas tank immediately went to “E”, and when Clark escaped and began dropping fists and elbows, Browning tapped without much hesitation. 

You can’t go wrong when the heavyweights step into the cage, especially when one was coming off a fourteen-month layoff and the other was an in-shape behemoth.  Tyler East beat Prince McLean by TKO official at 1:33 of the first round.

 In what became a textbook “guy who knows how to box” versus “guy who, um, probably knows subs but can’t get it to the ground”, Jens Pulver – now a newly-minted bantamweight – stalked Cody Wheeler around the cage. The ref was finally convinced at 1:59 in Round 2. Video below.

The main event, which featured big puncher Houston Alexander against expert kicker Razak Al-Hassan, had about 11% fireworks and 89% methodical circling with erratic strikes thrown in.  The end came when Al-Hassan dislocated his finger – boo! – and when the doctor examined it immediately after the second round and was unable to pop in back in place, the bout was called.

Section S, row 25, seat 20. lol. In other words, halfway up on the most crowded side. I'm surprised you had service in there. Me and my buddy both really couldn't get our phones working. I walked all the way down to talk to my buddy Lenny Lovato after the Junie fight though.

How did the PPV look overall? I was at the event and the production quality seemed to be pretty good overall, compared to the other shows I've gone to.
