Seasoned veteran Vladimir Matyushenko used superior wrestling to earn a unanimous decision over fellow UFC alumnus Jason Lambert and snap a one-fight losing streak in the featured attraction of the first-ever “Call to Arms” show in Ontario, California on Saturday night.
With the win, Matyushenko rebounds from a disappointing knockout loss to rival Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning” event in January. Meanwhile, Lambert has now lost his last four professional bouts.
A number of notable fighters were featured on the card. Tiki Ghosn earned a decision over former Strikeforce fighter Brian Warren in the night’s co-main event. Former WWE wrestler and American Kickboxing Academy product Daniel Puder was also victorious in his return to action, albeit via an injury to opponent Jeff Ford.
