Three-time NCAA wrestling champion Jake Rosholt avenged a November 2010 defeat to former IFL middleweight title holder Matt Horwich, besting him over three rounds in the main event of Shark Fights 17 on Saturday night in Frisco, Texas.
Rosholt has now won six of his eight fights following his release from the UFC, with the two blemishes being a no-contest with John Ott and third-round TKO loss to Horwich that has now been avenged.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez extended his winning streak to twelve straight victories, picking up a quick submission win over a familiar opponent in Doug Williams, who was a last-minute replacement for Karl Knothe.
