Hard Knocks Fighting Championship - School of Hard Knocks - Medicine Hat, played to a packed crowd at the Cypress Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Western Canada has a rich history in the combat sports and HKFC gave the fans of this Rocky Mountains area another entertaining night of fights with a highly charged card that saw 6 of 8 fights end via stoppage.
In the main event, it was a clash of featherweights as Marc Savoie (1-1) defeated Chad Anheliger (0-2) via armbar submission in Round 1. Savoie was hurt seconds into the fight by big left hand from Anheliger and it looked like it would be a short night. After a face paced scramble, Savoie was able to take down Anheliger. Savoie worked top position and side mount to land some strikes, but after another quick scramble, Anheliger landed inside of Savoie's guard and after a couple transitions Savoie isolated the right arm of Anheliger and leveraged the armbar for the tapout victory. According to Savoie, who also dabbles in sky diving, this match had all the adrenaline of 10 jumps.
In the co-main event, lightweight Julius Huhs (1-0) defeated Jesse Seeberg (1-5) by TKO less than a minute into Round 1. A former American-football player in Germany, Huhs, wasted no time in his debut fight. The bigger Huhs got a takedown seconds into the match, moved to mount and rained down more than a dozen unanswered punches knocking Seeberg out before the referee could step in. For Seeberg, who is a boxer, he never got the opportunity to display his skillset as Huhs took the fight to the ground immediately. For Huhs, this was a nice beginning to what looks like a promising career in MMA.
