Team Takedown members Jake Rosholt, Johny Hendricks and Shane Roller, each former All-American standout wrestlers at Oklahoma State University, were victorious in their respective bouts at last night’s Xtreme Fighting League event at the Tulsa, Oklahoma Expo Square Pavilion.

The event was televised live on HDNet.

Rosholt dominated opponent Chad Jay from the start in the main event, taking Jay down at will and scoring early and often with a mix of punches and elbows from the top position. Jay tagged Rosholt with a combination at the start of the second round and did so once again in the third, momentarily stunning the wrestler.

However Rosholt regained his composure and scored yet another takedown, eventually landing a number of unanswered blows that forced the referee to halt the bout.

Hendricks scored an early takedown and easily transitioned into a D’Arce choke that caused last-minute replacement opponent Richard Bamgle to tape out only a minute and a half into the first round. Roller needed just under two minutes to stop Yoshihiro Kitaoka with strikes.

Levi Avera sucessfully defended his XFL welterweight title, submitting Brandon Newsome with a triangle in the first round.
