Canadian welterweight Jeff Joslin returned to action last night for the first time in over a year. Joslin took some time off after losing two straight controversial decisions to UFC veterans Jonathan Goulet and Jon Fitch.
Last night Joslin made his return against Nuri Shakir in APEX. Joslin come out firing early landing a crisp overhand right which was the beginning of the end for Shakir. Joslin teed off on Shakir with an barrage of punches and eventually the ref called a stop to the fight as Shakir lay face down and motionless on the canvas. Joslin was declared the winner knock out at 2:42 of the first round and with the win he was named the APEX welterweight champion.
Also on the card was a battle for the featherweight title which saw UFC and PRIDE veteran Jeff Curran going up against Wagnney Fabiano. Both fighters looked rather tentative on the feet throughout the fight but Fabiano was able to score numerous takedowns throughout the fight. One problem for Fabiano was the fact that he constantly failed to improve his position on the canvas. Curran came out firing in the third as he landed some good shots before they hit the canvas again. In the end Curran did enough to win the split decision and the APEX featherweight crown.
Fans saw the organization crown two more champions as Rowan Cunningham won a four man tournament to be crowned the Canadian welterweight champion and Mark Bocek won a lightweight affair to earn himself the lightweight title.
