Victory fighters earn wins in Maine

Tonawanda News —

On Saturday night Victory MMA sent two of its fighters on the road to compete in Maine on New England Fight's "Cagefighting in Biddeford" card.

Both warriors returned to Western New York with another notch in the win column.

Tonawanda's Matt Bordonaro finished Crowsneck Boutin with a guillotine choke 1:35 into the first round, while Valerie Aspaas won a hard-fought decision over Maria Rios, the No. 23-ranked women's amateur fighter in the world.

Bordonaro, a fighter who relies on his grappling and submission abilities, entered the cage expecting to engage in a stand up battle against Boutin. But after a quick head kick attempt Boutin went for a takedown and, while on his back, Bordonaro was able to make him tap out.

Victory MMA is in the works of planning another TNT Fight Series event for Sept. 28. TNT 155-pound champion Frankie Scalzo (Niagara Falls) is looking for his first professional fight, so there will be a four-man tournament to determine the new champion. Check TNT Fight Series on Facebook for more information.
