Taylor Stratford vs Amanda Bell
-Ultimate Reno Combat 23-
Stratford by TKO, Rd 4

You may remember Taylor Stratford as one of the girls that Ronda Rousey blew through on her way to the pros, but she has rebounded nicely since that loss.  This was the first of two 145 lb amateur titles that Taylor would win in a span of eight days.

Jodie Esquibel vs Brittany Horton 
-Jackson’s MMA Series IV-
Esquibel by TKO, Rd 1

This was the pro debut for both fighters, but it was Esquibel’s first MMA fight altogether since her pro boxing experience excluded her from being able to compete as an amateur.  As if she wasn’t already cool enough, turns out she’s a firefighter in New Mexico, as well as a licensed paramedic.

Justin Buchholz vs Steve Sharp
Buchholz by Sub, Rd 1

What makes Buchholz’s celebratory ninja moves so awesome is that Sharp had his boys enter the cage in ninja outfits and make a big scene before the fight.
