125lb Flyweight Bout; Robert Ricks (pro-debut) vs Keeton Gorton (pro-debut)

Round 1: Gorton comes out with a quick punch combo then clinches Ricks against the cage but eats a knee to the body in doing so. Robert forces Keeton’s back against the cage but Gorton reverses back and they remain on the cage for about 2 minutes. Keeton lands a heavy right hand then follows it with a left that stuns Ricks, another hard right lands flush. Then Ricks answers with a right hand of his own and some hard kicks to end the round.

Round 2: Gorton comes out like a man possessed and annoyed by the clock, he immediately drops Ricks with a hard right hand then swarms on top and lands rights and lefts then jumps into side control. He then took Robert’s back and sunk in a sleek rear naked choke for the tapout.

Official Decision: Keeton Gordon def. Robert Ricks via submission (RNC) at :48 of Round 2.

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.
