PRIDE Fighting Championships veteran Mike Russow was victorious over last-minute replacement opponent and fellow veteran Jason Guida Saturday night in Chicago, submitting Guida with a first-round guillotine choke at Adrenaline MMA’s inaugural show at the Sears Centre.
The two local products exchanged punches on the feet before Russow scored a takedown during the first minute of the fight. Guida surprisingly was quick to spring back up to his feet, only to be taken down by Russow once again. Another attempt to stand up came next for Guida, but his exposed neck was grabbed by Russow who locked in a tight guillotine choke that ultimately forced Guida to tap out.
Fresh off of a successful professional boxing debut, UFC veteran Terry Martin was victorious in his return to mixed martial arts, defeating longtime Japanese veteran Daiju Takase by disqualification after Takase kicked Martin in the groin three separate times during the course of their bout.
Forrest Petz shook off a damaging left hand from opponent Brian Gassaway to wrestle his way to an unanimous decision win in a fight that was much closer than the judge’s scorecards read. Other notable veterans who garnered victories at last night’s show included Bart Palaszewski, Rory Markham, Clay French, and Joe Jordan.
