Saturday’s MMA bouts feature local favorites, title bout at jr. welterweight

By Rob Lamb

There is a mantra in the Mixed Martial Arts world, “never leave it in the hands of the judges.”
The fighters at King of the Cage took that to heart Saturday night at Buffalo Thunder Hotel and Casino. Not once was it required to collect the judges score cards as all of the bouts finished well before their scheduled times.
A near-capacity crowd filled the venue to cheer on local fighters as they did battle in the octagon. The action was fast paced as the fighters ripped through the card.
Henry ‘Perro Loco’ Adame’s night came to an end quickly. Adame, a 135-pounder who took his fight on just two-weeks’ notice, suffered a dislocated kneecap in the first 14 seconds of the bout against “Razor” Ray Martinez in the first fight of the evening.
Grant Hobbs of Colorado fought Albuquerque’s Skyler ‘The Rabbit’ Pendelton. Both men put on a ground game.
Late in the second round, Pendelton was nearly choked out by Hobbs, only to be saved by the bell. Hobbs was able to clinch the victory, however, by clinching Pendelton in an arm bar submission hold at the 1:35 mark of the third round.
