Alaska FC 141: Dominick Meriweather & Mike Plazola dominate, 5 finishes in 5 main card fights

Anchorage, Alaska – Ater a lengthy summer vacation, Alaska FC returned with a bang courtesy of five finishes in five fights at AFC 141. Relive all the action from the event, with clips via @UFCFightPass and quick recaps of all the main card clashes.

 

 

Alaska FC 141 Main Event:

145: Dominick Meriweather (5-1, #7 Alaska)  Sub1-Guillotine  David Booker (3-3, #11 Alaska)

After spending nearly a year on the sidelines after his first pro loss, Dominick Mayweather bounced back in style with a bell-to-bell beating of “The Coffee Boss” David Booker. Meriweather wasted no time shooting for an immediate takedown that he easily secured. Before long the 26 year old advanced to mount and pounded away for several minutes. Booker briefly reversed position, but that gave Meriweather a chance to grab a front headlock and squeeze out the submission via guillotine choke 4:16 into round 1.

 

 

155: Mike Plazola (16-9, #10 Iowa)  Sub2-RNC  Cody Rice (13-13, #12 Alaska)

Victory FC alum Mike Plazola made a statement in his Alaska FC debut, splattering Alaskan boxer Cody Rice on the mat en route to a second round finish. The 24-time AFC veteran Rice landed some solid shots on the feet in round 1, but found himself lifted and planted whenever the Iowan closed distance. Plazola did plenty of good work on the ground, including an elbow that busted Rice open in the final seconds of round 1. When Plazola got the fight back down in round 2, he caught Rice’s neck in a scramble and forced the quick tap via RNC.

 

 

205: Aaron Phillips (1-0)  Sub1-Strikes  Jason Hughes (0-1)

In one of the better recent pro debuts inside the Alaska FC cage, wrestler Aaron Phillips grounded and smashed mean-mugging Oregonian Jason Hughes into submission early in round 1. Phillips avoided a few close head kicks at the start before pushing his way into the clinch. From there Hughes had no chance, as Phillips ragdolled him to the mat and started bludgeoning him with brutal elbows from mount. Hughes struggled but couldn’t get out of the position, leading to the round 1 tapout to strikes.

 

 

150: Kyle Dela Rosa (1-0)  TKO1-Flying Knee  Tristin Lowe (0-1)

Odd scene at the start of this one as the two men played a game of rock-paper-scissors in the middle of the cage – for real. Hopefully Lowe won that contest, because he got dominated on the mat before eating a flying knee to the body that earned Kyle Dela Rosa his first pro win.

 

 

265: Enoka Sautia (1-0)  Sub1-Keylock  Dreads Bridge (0-1)

Late replacement Dreads Bridge landed a nice right hand early on but was in trouble as soon as he made the mistake of clinching with the bigger Enoka Sautia. Sautia smoothly dumped him to the mat and passed to side control where he finished the jiu-jitsu novice with a sort of modified keylock.
