Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Jason Von Flue snapped a four-fight losing streak with a first-round submission of Bryson Kamaka at PureCombat’s “Hardcore” event, which took place Friday night at the Visalia Convention Center in California.
Even though Von Flue came away as the victor, it was Kamaka that looked to have the fight in hand from the start. Kamaka dropped Von Flue with a right halfway through round one and followed up with punches on the ground that prompted the referee to keep an extremely close eye on the action. However Von Flue survived the onslaught and dropped back for a kneebar, which forced Kamaka to tap out.
Also victorious on the card was Scott Lighty, who was recently featured along with teammate Glover Teixeira in TapouT’s reality show on Versus, used his K-1 kickboxing skils to earn a unanimous decision over Kawika Morton.
“Ultimate Fighter” cast member Lodune Sincaid was withdrawn from the card due to unknown reasons. He was replaced by journeyman B.J. Lacy, who was submitted by a returning Emanuel Newton in the second round of the night’s main event.
