Louisiana MMA; WFC 23 Results


A very high class promotion from Las Vegas, World Fighting Championships came to the Belle Casino and Hotel this weekend to provide fireworks before July 4th in the form of explosive MMA action.

135lb Amateur Bantamweight Title Bout; David Lee (3-1) vs Trent Meaux (8-4)

David controlled round one with a couple of scored take-downs and a few attempted arm-bars to keep Meaux stifled on his offense. Round 2, Trent came out early and kicked the legs of David a number of times before Lee got another take-down and controlled Meaux on the ground for the entirety of the round. In the third stanza Trent landed some hard shots standing but was taken down once more, so he tired for a guillotine but to no avail. After awhile the ref stood the combatants up  and they both go to war on the fence landing bout ending blows. Then David lands yet another take-down and rains down punches until the final bell sounded.

Official Decision; David Lee def. Trent Meaux via unanimous decision.

155lb Pro Lightweight Co-Main Event Bout; Gage Duhon (3-0) vs Josh Lagrange (1-3)

Round 1: Gage came forward with a barrage of right and left hands mixed with kicks early. Then the pair exchanged kicks and Duhon took Josh down but Josh landed on top until Gage reversed position and then bot stood up. Duhon showed off his boxing once more and landed some heavy straight jabs which led to another take down. In guard Gage mixed elbows and punches with Josh’s face until he could get out and back to his feet. Where once more Duhon takes the fight to the mat right before the first bell sounded.

Round 2: Josh comes out with malicious intent in the form of his legs and leg kicks Gage, the pair then exchange for a bit until Duhon landed yet another take-down, and like prison break, Josh escaped once more. Gage went back to the plentiful well once more and scored another take-down but Josh threw up a triangle choke hold but allowed Gage to take his back where Gage sunk in a oily slick rear naked choke for the victory.

Official Decision; Gage Duhon def. Josh LaGrange via submission (rear naked choke) at 2:33 of Round 2.

155lb Pro Lightweight Main Event Bout; Lanny Dardar (13-7) vs Tolutomi Agunbiade (1-1)

Round 1: The veteran Lanny landed a hard leg-kick early out, then one to follow, then a hard right makes its’ way home like a runner leaving third base, and this connection puts Agunbiade on his roller skates. Another right landed for Dardar and Tolutomi collapsed on the mat, the ref rushed in and appeared to stop it, but didn’t so Dardar continued to make like an F-16 and dropped bombs to the face of Agunbiade until he went to sleep and the ref stopped it.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
