Elite XC has invested much of its marketing on the undefeated Carano, and she delivered when it counted, as Carano and Young put on the fight of the night thus far. Round one was close, but Young, who trains at the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy with the likes of Brock Lesnar and Sean Sherk, initiated most of the action and looked stronger at the end after scoring a late takedown. In the second, though, Extreme Couture’s Carano relied on her Muay Thai, mixing up her strikes and flooring her opponent with a push kick. Young barely fended off a rear naked choke at the end of the round. Young’s right eye was swollen shut after the round, leading the doctor to call the fight.

Baroni has long been known as the brash “New York Bad Ass,” but the speed of his fists clearly no longer matches the speed of his mouth. The underrated Villasenor nearly put Baroni away with a guillotine, then floored Baroni with a quick right-left combo that staggered Baroni to the canvas. The referees clearly are erring on the side of caution with a national television audience watching, as both of the past two fights were stopped as soon as they hit the ground. Baroni was a big crowd favorite coming in, but was booed when he attempted to head back to the dressing room before the verdict was announced.
After some work in the clinch, Murphy came out swinging wildly and more or less walked into a nasty right to the jaw. Another solid win for Rogers, one of Elite XC’s most promising heavyweight. Rogers, who was introduced by rap star Bustah Rhymes, was never in trouble and simply waited on his shot. Six of seven Rogers’ seven wins have come by way of KO or TKO.
