Packed house at Havoc Fighting Championships

The octagon was filled with brute force on June 7 at the Sheraton Hotel as Havoc Fighting Championships filled the banquet room

The octagon was filled with brute force on June 7 at the Sheraton Hotel as Havoc Fighting Championships filled the banquet room to the brim.

With many local fighters ranging from first time to amateur to professional and well seasoned – the 11 fights were packed with edge-of-your-seat action from start to finish.

Blaine Cust’s first time in the ring even helped to raise $10,150 as he squared off against Grayson Wells, also a first-time fighter.

The 42-year-old Cust pledged to donate his proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society in an effort to fight a disease that has plagued his family many times.

The main event of the evening was Josh Machan vs. John Fraser and lasted a meager 22 seconds.

While both fighters threw a fury of fists, neither could land a hit until Machan ultimately grasped hold of Fraser in an unforgiving guillotine chokehold and won the round.

This left Machan with a 10-4 professional record in the 145lb class.

The fights are available to view online through www.topmmanews.com and were blogged from the site as well.

This was the second of the Havoc Fighting championships held, the first being in December 2012 and another round of mayhem is already in place for Sept. 6.
