In recapping other events besides EliteXC and Strikeforce that took place this past weekend, Hatsu Hioki retained his TKO featherweight championship with a first-round submission of Thierry Quenneville at TKO 35 Saturday night in Montreal.
The win was Hioki’s first inside the confines of TKO since he earned a majority decision over Mark Hominick at TKO 28 back in February of last year. Also victorious on the main card were “Ultimate Fighter” contestant Noah Thomas who submitted Adrian Wooley to claim the vacant TKO bantamweight belt and former hockey enforcer Steve Bosse, who scored a first-round TKO of Sebastien Gauthier.
Just like Don King, boxing mainstay Sycuan Ringside Promotions co-promoted it’s first-ever mixed martial arts event Saturday night in San Diego along with local organization Total Combat. Jesse Taylor stopped fellow UFC veteran Drew Fickett in the first round with strikes in the show’s main attraction.
Complete results from both cards are after the jump.
