Ulster Hall electric as Kildress fighter Loughran impresses thumbnail

KILDRESS fighter Caolan Loughran edged Galbally's Micky Doran in an exciting three round contest for the amateur 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 in a dominant position on Doran's 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 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.
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 main event Brazilian Jiujitsu specialist Ian Coughlan submitted his Polish opponent Maciej Gierszewski via a nasty choke hold.
In the other main event of the evening, Keith Coady of SBG got the finish via rear naked choke, beating the experienced Mark Andrew.
