The highlight of the night came from the The Foundry’s own Franciel Duran, who landed a one-punch knockout in the second round to pick up the victory in exciting fashion. After falling behind on the scorecards in the first round, Duran decided to let the hands fly and was rewarded when he dropped his opponent to the mat. 

In the main event of the evening, The Foundry’s Cooper Kaminsky utilized his wrestling and striking skills to dominate the fight and cruised to a 30-27 unanimous victory. Other fighters from The Foundry who had their hands raised in victory were Devin Maldonado and Levi Glisson, while Caesar Giol found himself on the wrong side of a controversial split decision.
