3 Things Learned at 209 Beatdown II

209 Beatdown, an all-amateur MMA promotion housed in Northern California, opened its doors to 209 Beatdown II on April 29, 2017, rang its bell, and created a rich setting—including both fans and fighters alike—for learning.

The amateur ranks in mixed martial arts allow athletes to discover their potential as prizefighters while receiving payments in bundles of experience. For those peering into the cage from outside, 209 Beatdown’s sophomore showcase, presented by JR Entertainment, broadcasted a fight card crammed with an incredible array of ability, which coupled the promotion’s intent to entertain with an invaluable lesson: JR Entertainment is spotlighting the region’s top teams and competitors and making a push in the game of promoting C.A.M.O (California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization) certified MMA.

Levels MMA

One of the more successful teams on display at 209 Beatdown II traveled inland from Marina: Levels MMA.

Frank Farmer, Ismael Romero, and Robert Davis flew the flag of Levels MMA and performed with an unrivaled intensity, elevating the attention being drawn to the growing fight team.

Frank Farmer

As the defending 209 Beatdown Welterweight Champion, Farmer wasted no time in reigning supreme over Stephen Martin. Moments after the hum of the bell died, an off-balance takedown from Martin invited Farmer to bury Martin’s neck into the crook of his arm. Twenty-seconds into the contest, the amateur champ, who earned NorCal MMA’s Submission of the Night, added to his crop of wins and will continue his ascent at 170-pounds.

Ismael Romero

Romero versus Esley Colson for the 209 Beatdown Middleweight Title—NorCal MMA’s choice for Fight of the Night—played out like a violent game of seesaw on the playground. The first round favored Colson’s well-rounded offense, but the pendulum swung in Romero’s favor when he returned to action from the stool. In a tale of two rounds, Romero, with a TKO stoppage, wrote the chapter on his tenacious toughness before those in attendance at 209 Beatdown II and proudly hoisted the 185-pound strap above his head.

Robert Davis

Davis dominated in his middleweight match opposite Eddie Leyva. Walking into enemy territory with a non-stop pressure from a different plane of reality, the rising prospect out of Levels MMA actively sought the finish from every position. An arm bar, cranked with equal parts technique and desire, forced Leyva to concede and spiked the decibels through the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium’s classically designed ceiling.

Blurring the Lines Between Amateur and Professional

Not only did Chris Burton close the curtain on 209 Beatdown II’s evening in the main event—challenging for the vacant 209 Beatdown Bantamweight Title—he sealed the deal on his stint in the amateurs with a Knockout of the Night victory over Daniel Oseguera. Leading in to the championship affair on April 29th, the Stockton native, who also owned the 209 Beatdown Featherweight Title, discussed on Episode 1 of NorCal MMA’s Fight Talk (link here) his intentions of turning pro once a belt hung from each shoulder. In a flawless outing before his hometown crowd, it was difficult to determine anything amateur about Burton’s style of attack.

No Judges Needed at 209 Beatdown II

The only people bored to tears inside the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium during 209 Beatdown II were those in charge of doling out points. When all ten fights finalized before regulation, 209 Beatdown II was punctuated with exclamatory cheers, instead of leaving decisions in the hands of others and causing curling trails of confusion. Ideal matchmaking and an environment conducive for fighters to throw caution to the wind created the perfect conditions for hopeful stars in MMA to shine.

When 209 Beatdown refills their headquarters in the heart of Stockton in August for 209 Beatdown III, you don’t want to be the fight fan wearing a dunce cap in the corner because you never purchased a ticket.

 

 

209 Beatdown II: Results & Recap

More often than not, mathematics and MMA mesh in mysterious ways. At 209 Beatdown’s sophomore show, 209 Beatdown II, on April 29, 2017, a one hundred percent finish rate, along with four gold belts finding their rightful owners, meant everything added up to equal: an all-amateur MMA promotion in Stockton producing an exponential amount of excitement amongst the numerous fight fans from around Northern California in attendance.

Each of the ten bouts on 209 Beatdown II’s fight card concluded before regulation expired, which meant: the only people leaning back in their seats, while everybody else inside the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium crept toward the edge, were the cage side scorekeepers. Not only did the hard fought effort of each athlete who entered the steel battlefield at 209 Beatdown II attract the audience’s attention, John Narvaez and Rayford Hudson, the combo who comprise JR Entertainment, ensured that focus remained fixed at center stage by scheduling a close to the evening with four shiny objects: the Welterweight Title, Middleweight Title, vacant Bantamweight Title, and an Interim Heavyweight Title.

Chris Burton vs. Daniel Oseguera for the vacant 209 Beatdown Banamweight Title

While all eyes were on these bantamweights as they made their walk from backstage, the atmosphere fogged with tension when Burton, who concurrently held the 209 Beatdown Featherweight Title, and Oseguera never broke their intense stare before the bell.

Targeting a second championship marker in front of his hometown crowd, Burton performed flawlessly at 135-pounds, the weight class he intends to enter as a professional. At the one-minute mark, the product of both Beastmode MMA and Team Alpha Male went down two strikes in a three strike combination, but the third swing was a bench-clearing grand slam, leveling Oseguera with an overhand right and causing the referee to rip Burton from his limp carcass.

The ten-pounds Burton dropped to compete in his new division returned to his hardened frame once his hand was raised and 209 Beatdown’s Bantamweight and Featherweight straps hung from each shoulder.

Antonio Jimenez vs. Eddie Smith for the Interim 209 Beatdown Heavyweight Title

Only ten little piggies were necessary when counting the seconds it took for Jimenez, a Stockton native, to send his supporters crying all the way home with joy after an emphatic knockout victory.

Smith, with only twenty-four hours notice, jumped at the opportunity to accept the match against Jimenez; unfortunately, the product of Beastmode MMA had invested several pages from his calendar to grueling training sessions; a camp designed to even the odds in a rematch with 209 Beatdown’s reigning Heavyweight Champ, Renardo Palmer.

With Jimenez and Palmer holding 209 Beatdown’s heavyweight keepsakes around their waist, the plot only thickens when they meet to unify their titles in the future.

Esley Colson vs. Ismael Romero Pugh for the 209 Beatdown Middleweight Title

Whatever reach Romero Pugh lacked when challenging Colson for his belt, he made up for with a granite chin and deeper gas tank.

Colson tossed the kitchen sink at Romero Pugh in the first frame, displaying dominance in the departments of striking and grappling; however, by applying the pedal to the metal mentality, Colson entered the second round operating on fumes.

Once Romero Pugh was able to stave off any of Colson’s attempts to control where action occurred, he twisted the dial of his aggression, as crafted at Levels MMA, into the red, wound up in an advantageous position on the ground, and tattooed Colson with ground-and-pound until the C.A.M.O (California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Organization) official couldn’t allow the bludgeoning to continue.

Frank Farmer vs. Stephen Martin for the 209 Beatdown Welterweight Title

Training out of Levels MMA in Marina, Farmer evidenced his skill-set is on an entirely different plane when defending his belt against Martin.

In only twenty-seconds, Farmer’s potential as a developing mixed martial artist blossomed before the patrons of 209 Beatdown II. After Farmer delivered several leg kicks, Martin failed on an attempt to plant Farmer on the canvas, leaving his neck exposed.

Without any hesitation, Farmer’s beefy bicep squeezed off the oxygen supply to Martin’s brain with a crushing guillotine.

NorCal MMA’s Performances of the Night

Although each competitor at 209 Beatdown II deserves praise for filling the venue’s beautiful interior with the destructive elegance of their talents, several fighters morphed the card from a treasured memory into a priceless piece of work.

Typically, the third time is the charm, except in the case of 209 Beatdown, an endearing MMA promotion that charmed Northern California’s fight scene in their first event. Leave it to an amateur MMA promotion in Northern California to correctly calculate MMA math: In August 2017, 209 Beatdown I plus 209 Beatdown II equals 209 Beatdown III.
