UFC and EliteXC veteran Mike Kyle and World Extreme Cagefighting middleweight Bryan Baker were both victorious last night at JG and TKT Promotions’ “Fighting 4 Kidz” charity event in Santa Monica, California Saturday night, while former “Ultimate Fighter” cast member Gabe Ruediger fell in his first fight in almost a year.
Kyle overcame a dangerous third round to earn a decision over Mychal Clark while Baker used superior striking skills to pick apart Gary Padilla over three rounds en route to the nod on the judge’s scorecards.
Ruediger, who came into the event not fighting since November 2007, was never able to get going against American Kickboxing Academy Justin Wilcox, who dominated Ruediger and won a unanimous decision.
World jiu-jitsu champion Andre Galvao was successful in his professional MMA debut in the show’s main event, submitting Strikeforce veteran Jeremiah Constant with an armbar in the second round.
