Rocktagon MMA - Amateur Elite Series 5, was a night when a unified champion was crowned at the Rocktagon Arena.
In the main event, Rocktagon MMA Warren, OH Champion Garret "The Sickness" Sahene (8-2) defeated Rocktagon MMA Elyria, Ohio Champion Marcus Washington (5-1-1) via submission by triangle choke in Round 1 to win the Undisputed Rocktagon MMA Elite Series Ohio Lightweight Championship. Both champions were ready to answer the call of duty but it was Sahene who seized the moment and executed his game plan perfectly by getting the fight to the ground almost immediately before Washington could connect with his powerful punches. Once it went to the canvas, Sahene peppered Washington with punches to the head and body keeping his opponent on the defensive and finally locked up the winning choke for the tapout, silencing a stunned crowd.
