Event Videos and Bouts
Fight Night Entertainment presented Round XV - Armed Forces at the Meydenbauer Convention Center in Bellevue, Washington. The event featured two title fights in the 155 lb and 135 lb amateur divisions. UFC Legend Maurice Smith was on commentary and added great insight and entertainment value for the online audience.
In the main event, Sean Villava (16-5) defeated Jake Burns (6-3) via guillotine in Round 2 to claim the 135 lb FNE Amateur Championship. Villava opened up a cut on Burns' nose in the opening round and mixed in some takedowns with a couple close choke attempts throughout the fight, but the gritty Burns was able to thwart the bad positioning and submission holds for most of the fight. Eventually Villava sunk in a deep guillotine in the second round for the tapout victory. Both fighters pushed the pace as there was constant movement for the entire fight with Villava landing the crisper shots and beating Burns to the punch later in the fight. Hopefully for Villava, he will transition to the professional ranks soon as he has proven himself a top level amateur.
In the co-main event, Zach Hector (12-3) defeated Zach "The Silverback" Wheeler (14-6) by unanimous decision after five rounds to win the 155 lb FNE Amateur Championship. After the fight both competitors were bent over from exhaustion after the effort then had given inside of the cage. Hector controlled the first three rounds mostly through his wrestling and grappling but the fourth was a different story as Wheeler landed cleaner shots that hurt Hector in a standup shootout. To his credit, Hector was able to regroup and take the fifth round and the title.
