The opening bout belonged to Jorge “Super Saiyen” Serrano and Frank “The Enforcer” Young, both local and newcomers to the sport. Serrano and Young are known as crowd-pleasing MMA crossover combatants.
Serrano would revive a nice round of applause as he clearly has the better skill set. Young would come out aggressive throwing wild shots but midway into the 1st round Serrano would land a short counter left hook that would drop Young. Although Young would beat the count and dust himself off at the count of 7, the power of Serrano would be in full display as he landed a booming overhand right to the chin of Young for another long count. Things became a little confusing as Young would absorb another barrage and collapse as he was definitely on shaky legs. The round suddenly ended with most questioned if the round was shorted or if the bout was stopped. The fight would continue and the result was never in question as Serrano jumped on Young with another barrage. Referee Paul Perry would wave off the fight :52 into the 2nd rd via TKO for the winner and now 1-0 Jorge Serrano. Young drops to 0-2.
