Thomas finds his way back up and both guys continue to swing for the fences. Sharkey lands a huge right hand and drops him in the exchange. Very exciting round to kick off the card. 10-9 Sharkey

R2 – Both guys come out tentative. They trade strikes on the feet for the first half of the round with nothing too significant landing. Thomas connects with a right high kick, Sharkey counters with a left hand. Thomas seems to be landing the crisper strikes and is doing a good job utilizing his reach advantage. Sharkey lands a huge counter right hand, drops him and gains the mount! That last strike steals the round. 10-9 Sharkey

R3 – Chants of “Sharkey” fill the stadium before the round starts. He lands a few hard shots in the clinch, Thomas counters with a solid body kick.

SFS: Jason Saggo Vs Eric Attard READY FOR WAR!!

Written by Randi Lotsberg

Ontario pro fighters Jason Saggo and Eric Attard will be stepping into the cage this Saturday, August 25th at the Score Fighting Series to test their minds, strength and skills. MMAxposed could see this bout being the fight of the night between these two skilled lightweights. Saggo is a brown belt training under Paul Abel out of P.E.I. and Attard trains out of Modern Vision MMA in Welland, Ontario under coach Chris Bonfoco. Both of these guys bring a different element into the cage; Saggo being known for his strong ground game and Attard for his Muay Thai background and powerful leg kicks. They are both at a comparable level when it comes to fitness and strength. This fight could go either way but it is bound to be the epitome of what a MMA fight should be!

Have a look behind the scenes in their training leading up to this event. Hear what they have to say about each other and how they think this fight will end.
