Mamba Fight Night 3 sells out

Abbotsford mixed martial arts event draws hundreds

The Mamba Fight Night 3 card featured over a dozen matches.

A sold-out crowd at the Ag-Rec Building witnessed local mixed martial arts history on Saturday.

Mamba Fight Night 3 saw some of the best young fighters from Abbotsford and the rest of the province square off, with several title belts up for grabs.

The main event saw Abbotsford’s Gagan Gill retain his Mamba MMA lightweight title by defeating Vancouver’s Dario Sinagoga by rear naked choke.

The first-ever Mamba MMA women’s flyweight championship match was won by Coquitlam’s Shawna Ram, who defeated Abbotsford’s Elysse Stevenson by guillotine choke.

In an all-Abbotsford battle, Sheldon Schwartzenberger defeated Lee Shawcross by technical knockout in middleweight division action.

In muay thai super middleweight division competition, Abbotsford’s Nick Mcinnes won by decision over Vancouver’s Graeme Exshaw.

Other results from the event included: Vancouver’s Binderpaul Nanara defeating Surrey’s Dion Wu by decision in the MMA flyweight division, Abbotsford’s Shawn Sitthikoun beating Surrey’s Bobby Agri by knockout in the muay thai cruiserweight division, Abbotsford’s Austin Batra winning over Kyle Yamelst by KO in MMA middleweight action, Sunshine Coast’s Theo Kontekakis defeating Surrey’s Derek Lang in muay thai light heavyweight action, Vancouver’s Andrey Vasiliev beating Abbotsford’s Quintin Young by decision in the muay thai welterweight division, and Surrey’s Brandon Labrecque winning by decision over Abbotsford’s Aman Birk.

The third edition of the event was the first to be at the Ag-Rec, after operating out of the Abbotsford Banquet Hall in 2015. Organizers state they hope for an even bigger and better event for 2017.
