Late July 2016 in the cool air conditioned arena at the Sycuan Casino taking refuge from the blistering hot El Cajon California weather the COMPOUND showed up at the FREEDOM STRIKES MMA EVENT and took over. the 1st 2 fights on the card involved compound fighters TOMMY GARCIA and ALLI JAFRA, both men finished their opponents in impressive fashion. Next was BENJAMIN SMITH who won every minuet of his fight, even the oppositions crowd agreed but was robbed by a split decision, tough fight and solid performance. Finally after 10 other action packed fights it was time for the MAIN EVENT. UFC legend and former K1 kickboxing champion Pat Smith, coming off a huge win over the iconic Eric “BUTTERBEAN” Esch. It took THE COMPOUND owner just 8 seconds in what is for sure to be seen as a huge knockout of one veteran over another. congrats team COMPOUND!
