Austin Jones closed out his dominant performance against Armus Guyton in the third round, catching him with a triangle choke on the ground.
Jones’ win headlined Fury FC 62 on Sunday night from the Douglas County Event Center in Castle Rock, Colorado, USA.
Jones slipped in a triangle choke while on his back on the ground. Completely locking in the submission, Jones forced Guyton to tap out and end the fight.
Jones gained a lead against Guyton in earlier rounds of the fight, giving himself a lead that meant a finish wasn’t needed. He took him down many times and controlled him on the ground to win rounds.
Jones has now picked up two wins in Fury FC. He won his promotional debut late last year, scoring a first-round finish victory over Montrel James.
Guyton was coming off a win from just last month, submitting Bellator alum Pat Casey in the first round of a fight.
Compton Ends Five-Year Losing Streak With Split Decision
Nick Compton snapped an extensive losing streak in Sunday’s co-main event, defeating Andrew Yates in an airtight split decision result.
Most of the fight took place on the ground. Yates would have control on top at times, but often wouldn’t do much with these positions. Compton was much more active with his time in control on the ground.
Compton earned his first win in over five years on Sunday night. His victory snapped a six-fight losing streak that he picked up around the regional scene throughout those years.
On the other hand, Yates had a trio of victories in his record before Sunday. He was ending a break with the fight, as his previous bout dated back to May 2019.
Jones Wins In Return
Matt Jones had a hard-fought victory in his return, earning a unanimous decision victory over Jason Mullen.
Jones won the fight with his ability to have strong moments both on the feet and on the ground. He was in a close battle against Mullen early, as Mullen was able to find success in many positions.
Jones continued to push the pace late as fatigue started to slow Mullen down in the final round.
Jones was appearing for the first time since he suffered a loss on an LFA card in 2019.
The defeat snapped a two-fight winning streak for Mullen on Sunday night. His previous victories saw him secure submission victories in Fury FC cards.
Martinez Ends Skid With Early Submission
Adam Martinez snapped a losing streak with a sudden anaconda choke win against Leo Carvalho.
Martinez secured the anaconda choke after escaping a submission attempt from Carvalho. The win didn’t come easy for Martinez, as he had to battle past early submissions from Carvalho on the ground and also suffered from large amounts of swelling around his right eye.
The Fury FC broadcast team questioned whether doctors would allow Martinez to continue fighting if the bout went to the corners and his swollen eye would get looked at.
Martinez had a four-fight losing streak before Sunday, including a previous Fury FC appearance and a 2021 bout against former UFC fighter Francisco Rivera.
Carvalho was making his Fury FC debut on Sunday. Along with appearances in Global Legion FC and CES, Carvalho has now lost three straight fights.
Mederos Bounces Back With Early Finish
Marquel Mederos bounced back from his sole pro loss with a quick finish win against Ben Lugo.
Mederos dropped Lugo in the first round with a kick to his lead leg. He then went to the ground with hard punches to the head of Lugo, causing the referee to eventually end the fight.
Mederos took his first pro loss in February, suffering a split decision loss to Santiago Guzman. Before then, he had two finish wins in 2021.
Lugo is now on a three-fight skid. His previous bout was an appearance on a Bellator card earlier this year, losing to undefeated prospect Lucas Brennan.
Van Submits Suazo With Calf Slicer For Fifth Win In Rookie Year
Josh Van kept his winning streak alive with an impressive grappling win on Sunday night. Van pulled off a calf slicer against Mario Suazo in the second round to force a tap.
Van’s submission victory came after a close opening round between the flyweights. Van had sharp striking that hurt Suazo on the feet early, but the ground control from Suazo in that round made it close.
Van’s incredibly busy rookie year now includes five wins and one loss. He has yet to experience a third round as a pro.
Suazo entered this card on a two-fight winning streak in Fury FC.
Kent Knocks Out Hall In Pro Debut
Kevin Kent scored a big walk-off knockout on Sunday night, stopping Caleb Hall in the opening round with a clean punch.
Kent floored Hall early in the fight with a left cross, connecting with that shot cleanly to cause the fight to end.
Kent was making his pro debut after an undefeated run as an amateur. However, his last amateur bout was back in 2016, per the broadcast.
Hall’s record is now a negative two wins and four consecutive losses.
