Maybe not as deep as the middleweight class, the welterweight still brings us some of the most exciting and dynamic fighters we have ever seen locally. Lucky for us, the pecking order is more clear, and all five of these fighters are still active locally, but with at least three of them looking ready to make the big jump, now is the time to catch these guys live.

Absolute MMA fighters go 2-0 in Jeremy Horns Elite Fight Night. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our fighters and a great night of fights.

Camrann Pacheco vs. Lance Gorman

Pacheco lands a hard couple of inside leg kicks. Gorman scores with a jumping knee and eats another couple of hard leg kicks. Gorman drops to the mat and Pacheco is all over Gorman. Pacheco is hammering down with both fists. Ref John Jordan steps in at :49 after Gorman has no answer for Pacheco’s “monkey strikes,” as the announcer puts it. Great fight!

Steven Sharp vs. Shane Brenner

Round 1: Steve Sharp comes out to a huge ovation. Wow, everyone is on their feet here cheering for Sharp, who comes out in a ninja suit and rips off the head gear to show is trademark pink hair with a black Mohawk. They’re still standing and cheering here. Brenner takes the center of the cage. They exchange some tentative strikes. Sharp lands a hard outside kick to Brenner’s right leg. Sharp lands a few strikes and Brenner’s leg either buckles or got kicked, I couldn’t tell. Joe Riggs steps in to stop this fight, as Brenner is down holding his leg, which doesn’t look good. At :39, Sharp gets the victory. In Sharp’s victory speech he says Brenner came in with an injury and made it worse. Brenner, sitting on the ground, thanks everyone and confirms the previous injury.
