RING OF COMBAT 41 RESULTS: Uriah Hall, Jimmie Rivera and Ed 'Truck' Gordon Win Title Fights in Atlantic City, NJ - 6/15/12

Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat presented ROC 41: Hall vs Kuduxashvili on Friday, June 15, 2012, at the Tropicana Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Tiger Schulmann teammates Uriah Hall and Jimmie Rivera walked away from Ring of Combat wearing gold around their waists. Uriah Hall successfully defended his ROC Middleweight Championship with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over previously unbeaten Georgian fighter Nodar Kuduxashvili. Fifty pounds lighter, Jimmie Rivera won the vacant ROC Bantamweight Championship with a more clear-cut unanimous decision over Justin Hickey.

Undefeated Team Serra-Longo prospect Ed "Truck" Gordon captured the ROC Light Heavyweight Championship, which was recently vacated by Tom DeBlass after he signed with the UFC. Ed Gordon earned the right to wear the 205-pound strap with a unanimous decision nod over Carlos Brooks.

In the night's biggest upset, Guillermo "Wilson" Serment submitted James Jenkins to win the vacant ROC Featherweight Championship. Jenkins had been a perfect 5-0 in Ring of Combat before running into the streaking Serment, who has now won 3 straight fights after starting his pro MMA career with a miserable 1-6 record.
