Izmatik FC 1: Results & Recap

September 9, 2017—Before the ribbon was ever cut to their inaugural show, first attempted to be the worst for Izmatik Fighting Championship.

Even though the card had drastically altered since its inception, the Central Valley of California swarmed to the Merced Fairgrounds for a small sampling of what the all-amateur MMA promotion had to serve. With only a handful of MMA bouts to deliver, Izmatik FC’s head honchos added a pair of grappling matches to warm the evening up. As all good stories come to an end, the heated rivalry between Anthony Howard and Jose Navarro was put into a coma-induced rest in the main event.
