Intense Championship Fighting ended a busy 2014 with a solid eight fight card at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, MT.

The main event saw Jared Torgeson successfully defend his middleweight title against Leo Bercier. Both were tentative throughout the fight, not wanting to over commit to a barrage of punches. Torgeson’s harder shots is what made the difference in what was a closely tested bout that saw the Washington fighter get a unanimous decision over Bercier.

It only took Tim Welch 47 seconds to defeat Idaho’s Kerry Lattimer in the co-main event of the card. After Lattimer got a takedown on Welch, the Montana native sunk a deep armbar to finish the fight. He improves to 12-5.

The other pro bout say Blake Green hip toss then armbar J.C. Gardipee in 29 seconds.

The amateur feature bout saw Sean O’Malley take on last minute replacement Brandon Caldwell in a non-title match. O’Malley looked to have fun in the cage with his striking, trying several times to leap off the cage for flying strikes.  Caldwell seemed game, however, with the ability to get the take. Ultimately, O’Malley would work off his back in round 2 to secure a triangle choke to get the submission win.

ICF president Cory Smith announced O’Malley has been signed to a three fight pro contract with the promotion, and his first pro fight will be in February.

In what was the only female bout on the card, Hannah Kampf out grappled DJ Morrison to get a unanimous decision win (you can watch the video of the fight here).

ICF at the Fair Results – Bercier Gets Meaningful Win

Bercier vs. Cook

Bercier vs. Cook

Intense Championship Fighting held their first ever card during the the Montana State Fair in Great Falls, MT Friday, in what was a crazy and action packed card.

Leo Bercier came back to ICF in what was a bittersweet homecoming, having just lost his father in June. This was only a few months after he lost his mother. Bercier dedicated his fight to his parents, and would get the win by TKO in the third round in the only pro MMA bout on the card.

Bercier (12-7-1; 1NC) faced a game Nate Cook in what was an 195 catchweight match. Bercier was more controlled than in his past fights, feeling out his opponent early on. Cook was aggressive in the first part of the round, bloodying Bercier’s nose. Cook would also land a knee to the body, which hurt Bercier, but also seemed to motivate him to start using his striking. Bercier would continue landing leg kicks and a nasty overhand right before the end of the first round.

The second saw Bercier continue where he left off, landing knees to Cook’s thighs, causing viable damage and Cook’s movement was effected. Bercier would try to box out Cook, but it was another leg strike that dropped Cook. Cook survived the round.

In round 3, Bercier finish what he started with leg strikes and a flurry of blows that made the ref call the fight right before Cook’s corner threw in the towel at 1:30.
