February 24, 2017 CenturyLink Arena hosted the first Front Street Fights event of 2017 last Friday with “Front Street Fights 11” last weekend in downtown Boise, Idaho, and the event set a high bar for future FSF events. As always, SBG Idaho was represented, with two athletes on the card.
Kyle Frost (SBG Idaho) Defeats Aldyn Ashcraft via KO (Punch) at :07 of Round 1 Frost followed up an impressive debut fight submission victory with the fastest knockout in Front Street Fights history! Both men touch gloves and Frost takes the center of the cage, quickly backing his opponent up to the cage with a jab to the body and a menacing right hand that just narrowly missed. Frost immediately steps into another thundering right that drops Ashcraft, followed by powerful ground and pound shots that cause referee Nate Decker to jump in and stop the fight at just 7 seconds into the first round!
Jacob Hauck defeats Paul Crawford (SBG Idaho) via Submission (RNC) at 1:27 of Round 1 Both men start the fight pawing for distance until Crawford catches the charging Hauck with a left hand before clinching him against the cage and dragging him to the ground, landing in full mount. Crawford tries to take the back of the turning Spokane native but doesn’t secure the position, allowing Hauck back to his feet. Crawford shoots in, secures a double underhook clinch before driving his opponent back against the fence. Crawford changes, levels and lifts Hauck with a huge takedown. Again, Crawford is unable to secure top position, allowing Hauck to recover and take Crawford down with a single leg of his own. Hauck settles into side control, landing shots that cause Crawford to turn and give up his back. Hauck secures one hook and throws some punches from the back that expose Crawford’s neck. Hauck catches the rear naked choke and Crawford is forced to concede at 1:27 in the first round.
A big thanks to all of the hard work put in by our fighters and trainers! Regardless of the outcomes, the skill, dedication and determination displayed, is a testament to the culture of our gym and organization, and a reason why SBG Idaho fighters continue to fill the cards at Front Street Fights.
