Davies Wins Made4TheCage Title Belt
22 Feb 2014
Well done to Hull MDMA fighter Michael ’Mickey Blue Eyes’ Davies on his mixed martial arts (MMA) championship title win at Made4TheCage 13 Nemesis in Sunderland on Saturday 22 Feb 2014.
Michael took the lightweight NSAC belt making him the current champion after defeating top prospect and previously unbeaten Kieran Lister.
Here’s what the fightlounge had to say about the fight.
"The final amateur fight of the night saw two undefeated lightweights collide as the 5-0-0 Michael Davies from Hull MDMA challenged the 6-0-0 Kieran Lister for Lister’s lightweight title. Someone’s undefeated record had to go and neither fighter was going to let that happen easily.
The fight got under way with a striking exchange and then Lister attempted a slam but a superb bit of transitioning saw Davies take Lister’s back in mid air and secure the position before they had even hit the mat! Davies was strong in the position and used some shots to help him lock in a body triangle before he released it to flatted Lister out and land more shots. A rear-naked choke attempt allowed Lister enough room to turn into Davies and get off some ground and pound but the man from Hull was able to sweep him and finish the round on top.
The second round saw Davies control for the vast majority with his great top control. Lister was able to sweep once and threatened with a kimura however for the most part Davies used his superior wrestling to control while landing some ground and pound from inside of Lister’s guard.
The third round saw more of the same as Davies scored a takedown early on and again began posturing up and getting off his shots. The pair were stood up half way through the round and Lister attempted to initiate a clinch but he took a hard knee to the body and again found himself on his back. Now on top again, Davies went back to work with his ground and pound until the fight ended and he was awarded the unanimous decision and the title."
A very exciting fight and an excellent victory for Michael and the team!
