This past Saturday, May 12th, Pure MMA held it’s second Pro event, called “The Next Episode” in Wilkes Barre, PA. It was an action packed card, full of talented fighters from across the country, with notable guests such as Greg Jackson, Marcus Davis, Matt Riddle amongst others. The main event was 9 time UFC Veteran Din Thomas vs Cody Bollinger. This event was held in the Wyoming Valley Sports Dome, giving the event a grandeur uncommon in such a new promotion. The local Fox station covered the event as well, adding to the big show feel of the event.
Our good friend, and teammate Elder Ramos ( 2-3-0 ), fought the first pro fight of the event. He faced off against James Watt ( 0-2-0 ) in the cage, and won by TKO in the first round. The knockout was by head kick. And in the words of MMA reviewer, Tony Reid of Rattling-the-cage.com:
“Ramos landed one of, if not the, nastiest headkicks I have seen”.
Congratulations to Elder Ramos on his impressive victory! Everyone at Vanguard Gym is proud of his achievements thus far, and can’t wait to see how far Elder “El Psycho” Ramos can go!
