LFA 80: Garcia vs Mariscal Results
LFA 80 took place January 17th from Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The main event ended with some controversy as Steve Garcia Jr. defeated Chepe Mariscal. Round one was all action with Garcia getting the better of Mariscal landing harder more frequent shots. Round two saw Mariscal making a comeback but Garcia also doing some damage. The fight went to the ground with Garcia landing a hard elbow to the back of the head opening a bad cut. The ref warned him but let the action keep going. They got to the feet and Garcia landed an ebow but as Mariscal was about to return fire the ref stopped it, when a stoppage didn't necessarily seem warranted there. Mariscal protested but to no avail to end an exciting fight. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
