Warrior One MMA - Reloaded
Warrior One MMA delivered another night of exciting fights with Reloaded as the rising promotion showcased internationally recognized stars mixed with up and coming local prospects all on an amazing 12-bout card, with 6 ending in either knockout or submission. The event was held at the BankUnited Center on the campus of the University of Miami, and Reloaded had all the action any MMA fan could want and for those fans that are into blood and guts, they got that too.
In the main event, and a battle of UFC veterans, it was TUF Alum Chuck O'Neil (9-4) defeating former UFC veteran Marcus Davis (20-9) in a 170 lb scrap after a high octane three rounds. It was a great exhibition of standup fighting as both men used the sweet science to pick apart their opponent. It was a close fight going into the final round where things turned for O'Neil in a big way. O'Neil landed a perfect elbow that left a big gash on Davis' head. Blood was flowing almost immediately after that and would do so until the final bell. The elbow and ensuing cut is probably what won O'Neil a split decision as the fight was razor close before the exchange. A great win for O'Neil, it will be interesting to see what his future holds. For Davis, it was an unlucky break, for the courageous and grizzled veteran.
In the co-main event, hometown hero Luis Palomino (17-7) defeated James Edson Berto (16-9-1) via unanimous decision. Palomino was the aggressor throughout the three round fight and always seemed to land his strikes before Berto could get his punches and kicks off. Palomino also controlled the ground game stifling any attacks by Berto in the process. It was an impressive victory for Palomino who has been a mainstay on the South Florida MMA scene for some time. Hopefully the Bellator veteran gets another opportunity to showcase his skills on the national level.
