Long Island MMA at Triton Fights + Holiday training | Long Island MMA news update!

Long Island MMA had a good night this past staurday at Triton fights. Long Island MMA sent in 3 guys to compete. Chris Guariglia was making his MMA debut and was up as the first fight of the night. Chris went out and fought a tough fighter with a lot of skill in stand up, Chris wasn’t afraid to trade punches with him but ultimately got him on the ground each and every round. In the thrid round Chris got reversed from mount and ended up on the bottom, Chris was able to scramble and find an arm-lock finishing his opponent in the third round. Next up was Long Island MMA’s Mike Fitzroy, this was Mikes 3rd MMA fight but mike looked like a real veteran. Mike opponent much likes Chris’ was one of the tougher people on the card. Mike showed his improvement in his stand-up and wound up winning an unanimous decision. Asheik Ajim who was suppose to fight on the card vs Dennis Stamp, didn’t get a chance to compete in MMA but Triton set up a grappling match for him instead. Ashieks opponent came in 10 lbs over weight so he was not able to fight. Triton set up Ashiek in a grappling match against Stamp’s teammate. Ashiek looked calm and confident as he was able to attack his opponent the entire time. Ashiek did not get the win because of the submission only rule set but it was a fun contest to watch. The match ended in a draw.
