  • If you missed NorCal Combat’s final event of the year, then you have missed some awesome nonstop live Mix Martial Arts action.  It was an exciting conclusion to the 2012 series of NorCal Combat events.  Some debut fighters have made their mark on the MMA map and a new flyweight champ was crowned. 
    Out of the nine bouts only two went all three rounds which ended with a unanimous decision.   One fight ended in an armbar submission and the rest all ended with Technical Knock Outs.  Most of the fights were back and forth. Only one or two was one sided and those ended in the first round.  Cody Walsh of Team Fury took home the flyweight title adding another belt to Oroville’s Team Fury.   Gridley’s own Frank Ruggirello added another win to his record with a first round TKO.
    As the 2012 series comes to a close I can’t wait for next year’s events.  The way that things are going I can see that there will be more events and more fighters in the coming year.   You just may see some female fighters in the cage pretty soon as well.  Great job to Orsua and Byrne Fight Promotions for bring us some excellent MMA action to our community.  If you want to see our local up and coming fighters in action, this is the place to be.  Excellent event to end the year with. Hope to see you all out there next time.
