The referee called an end to the fight, but instead of cheers for the victor there was an eerie silence hanging over the crowd. No one wanted to be the first to applaud. Frankie Edgar did not celebrate by running around the cage or climbing to the top and pointing furiously into the audience. Instead he held his arms up for only a second and walked over to check on his defeated opponent. A legend of the sport had just fallen and the way he had fallen is what turned the crowd so solemn.

B.J. Penn returned to the UFC on July 6th for the rubber match against the first Lightweight to beat him in 8 years, Frankie Edgar. As the 10-1 underdog Penn was never expected to come close to winning, but no one expected the beat down that would ensue. Edgar handily beat Penn through two rounds and finished him in the third by raining elbows down on Penn’s head.

Joseph Elegele: ‘I’m a better fighter than these guys that are getting airtime’

It’s been well over a year since welterweight prospect Joseph Elegele’s last match.

Facing off with Javier Molina inside of The Hangar in Costa Mesa, Calif. in March of 2013, Elegele dropped a competitive unanimous decision after eight rounds of action.

Scores reading 78-72 and 77-75 twice may have told the tale of a good scrap, but the tallies did little to showcase just how disappointing of an evening that was for Elegele.

The following months have certainly been a test of the Melbourne, Fl. native’s resolve and Elegele admits that sometimes his belief has wavered.

Earlier tonight from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Ill., unbeaten welterweight prospect Semajay Thomas improved to 4-0 with 2 knockouts after overwhelming Charon Spain and scoring a first round TKO victory. Thomas is one of the most gifted prospects you will see and he seems to be carrying a newfound maturity about him these days.

Thomas trains under the tutelage of Ronnie Shields in Houston, Tex. yet still finds time to swing through Las Vegas for some top level work. Check out some of our highlights of Thomas over the past few years below.

Later tonight, from the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, Calif., once-beaten junior middleweight prospect Daquan Arnett (11-1, 7 KO’s) will return to the ring when he faces off with well-traveled Angel Hernandez (16-16-1, 13 KO’s).

The melee marks the Florida native’s first match since his January points loss to Eddie Gomez in Brooklyn. Arnett fought a valiant match against the fellow prospect but he was dropped in the seventh round and was simply outhustled in too many of the scheduled ten rounds.

Newsflash: Aaron ‘Gavilan’ Garcia returns against Tijuana’s Daniel Ramirez tonight in San Diego

Later tonight, from the Crowne Plaza Hotel in San Diego, Calif., former national amateur champion Aaron “Gavilan” Garcia (14-3-2, 4 KO’s) returns to the ring when he meets up with Tijuana’s Daniel Ramirez (10-1, 4 KO’s) in a featherweight clash.

Garcia is riding a four-fight winning streak, with the most eye-opening victory in that run being a 5th round knockout over fellow prospect Kevin Hoskins last November.

Garcia is coached by rising trainer Vince Parra and will be looking to capture the vacant USA California State title with a victory. If successful, expect a big fight to come his way later this year.
