Yamma Pit Fighting 1 Results: UFC Veteran Patrick Smith Defeats Butterbean

The new organization known as Yamma Pit Fighting had their first event last night over at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey.   The fight took place within a cage, but the surface of the cage was changed in a goal to have continuous action throughout the rounds.  Here’s how the Yamma Pit Fighting organzation describes it:

"The Yamma is a circular pit, shaped almost like a bowl, with a circular flat bottom that rises up around the edge…In this ring, if a fighter is pushed backwards towards the fence, he
moves up the lip, gaining both a height and leverage advantage over his
opponent. From this position, the fighter on the lip can use gravity
and leverage to reverse his opponent and take the fight back into the
center without a break in the action."

It was an exciting debut event for the new organization.  Many top MMA fighters participated including UFC veterans Mark "The Titan" Kerr, Travis "Diesel" Wiuff, Ricco "Suave" Rodriguez, Oleg Taktarov and former professional boxer Eric "Butterbean" Esch.
