Loughran and Doran steal the show at Clan Wars 32
Caolan Loughran edged Micky Doran in an exciting three round contest for the bantamweight title at Clan Wars MMA 32. Both fighters brought a large contingent of supporters with them, which created an electric atmosphere in the Ulster Hall. Loughran dominated the first round by getting himself to a dominant position on Dorans back and controlling the round from there. In the second round Doran came out with a much stronger showing and was able to show some deft grappling ability himself with some sweeps and reversals. The third was a back and forth round which ended with Caolan once again in a dominant position, which was probably what was just enough to swing the judges decision his way. It was a close fight in which both sets of fans would not mind seeing a rematch made.
Another notable performance came from IFS flyweight Arnaud Dos Santos, who knocked his Brazilian opponent Adriano Dos Santos out in the opening moments of their fight. In the co main event Brazilian Jiujitsu specialist Ian Coughlan submitted his polish opponent Maciej Gierszewski via a nasty choke hold.
In the main event of the evening Keith Coady of SBG got the finish via rear naked chocke, by beating the experienced Mark Andrew.
The show was covered for the first time by the BBC, who will be providing a highlights program presented by Stephen Watson on the BBC iPlayer from Monday 25th of June
