WEF 46 RESULTS: Seth Petruzelli and Chris Barnett Win in Orlando, Florida - 4/22/11


WORLD EXTREME FIGHTING 46 was held Friday, April 22, 2011, at the UCF Arena in Orlando, FL.

In the main event, Seth "The Silverback" Petruzelli, who was fighting for the first time since being released from the UFC after back-to-back losses, scored a first-round TKO victory over Dave "Big Wave" Mewborn. Petruzelli's most high-profile win was over Kimbo Slice in EliteXC on CBS television back in 2008, which resulted in Petruzelli being known as the "Kimbo Killer." Mewborn started his MMA career 8-1, but has since lost 3 straight fights.

The co-main event saw two veteran journeymen fighters duke it out. Antony "Wild Thing" Rea and Rob "Bull Rider" Wince both came into WEF 46 with 33 previous fights under their belts. In what was the 34th fight for each athlete, Rea won by second-round TKO over Wince.

UCC 4 RESULTS: Rolles Gracie Displays SUPREMACY in New Jersey, Main Event Spoiled by Illegal Knee - 4/22/11


URBAN CONFLICT CHAMPIONSHIPS 4: SUPREMACY was held Friday, April 22, 2011, at the William G. Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown, New Jersey.

The main event ended with a No Contest when Felipe "Sertanejo" Arantes landed an accidental knee to the head of a grounded Andy Main. It is illegal to knee an opponent to the head while they are on the ground under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. The ringside doctor determined that Main was unable to continue. Because the infraction was ruled by the referee as unintentional, the bout was ruled a No Contest. Main and Arantes were fighting for the vacant UCC Featherweight Championship, so a rematch is definitely in order.

In the co-main event, former UFC heavyweight Rolles Gracie submitted journeyman Braden Bice with an arm-triangle choke at five seconds past the one-minute mark of the opening round. Bice has now lost 4 straight fights.

In the main event, Adriano Martins won the Jungle Fight Interim Lightweight Championship with a first-round TKO win over the previously unbeaten Ronildo Augusto Braga. Yuri Alcantara holds Jungle Fight's main 155-pound title, however, he is currently signed with the UFC.
