On Saturday, July 24, 2010, the NAAFS held "the summers biggest bash" at The Cove in Geneva, Ohio. War on the Shore featured six Griffonrawl combatants.
George Murphy made his debut at 135lbs. Although he fell victim to a guillotine choke in the third round, George was able to gain a great deal of valuable experience and put on a great showing taking and giving heavy blows throughout the contest. We look forward to seeing George much, much sooner than later.
Nick Albrecht made his debut at 145lbs. Nick had an excellent debut, demonstrating solid skills on his feet and on the ground. He weathered several heavy blows, but was in complete control throughout the contest. When the dust settled, he was rewarded by the judges with a unanimous decision from the judges.
John Burbol had to deal with opponents changing up until the week before the fight. Once he entered the cage, those distractions were of little consequence as John improved to 4-2 with his second TKO in as many fights. This one came late in the first round, when John unleashed a wicked straight right that dropped his opponent and forced the referee to stop the contest.
Dan Farnworth made history by posting the fastest victory by triangle choke in NAAFS history. Beating the previous record (39 seconds) by 5 seconds, Dan improved to 3-1 with his 34 seconds in the cage.
'Wildman' Matt Hopkins utilized a solid game plan to defeat a very tough Ricky Foster by unanimous decision. Matt displayed a strong showing on his feet as well as on the ground. Matt had been absent from the fight scene for some time, but showed no ring rust as he made his return in his hometown.
George Comer continued his winning ways by improving to 7-0 with a unanimous decision victory in the main event of the evening. George showed continued improvement of his feet, as well as his solid ground game. George demonstrated that the phrase uttered by Muhammad Ali, "The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights" is true.
A big thanks goes out to all the teachers and training partners at Griffonrawl who made this a great night of fights.
