March 24, 2006 in Duluth, GA – This was David Oblas’ very first Wild Bills Fight Night event. The Kevin Gittemeier vs. Cam McHargue winner take all fight was the main event. At the beginning of the fight, Hathaway rushes in to clinch. I try to catch him with a hook as he is coming in, but I miss. Soon after, Hathaway hip tosses me on to my back. This was the first time ever being on the bottom in MMA competition.
I tie up Hathaway’s hands to prevent from being hit. He does land a couple of shots but nothing serious. I attempt a kimura but Hathaway gets out of it and lands an elbow. A few seconds later, I attempt another kimura and get it this time. Hathaway taps in the first round, and I celebrate for a while.
