Here was a breakdown of ShofiGHT 24 courtesy of GFL.tv:
ShoFight was back on GFL as it presented ShoFight 24 - Branson Brawl from Branson, Missouri. This was an epic MMA card as it featured a 12-man tournament for the first ever BMF Featherweight Championship. ShoFight has made its mark with MMA fans as it has been a launching point for fighters as some of the best prospects in the Mid-South have fought on a ShoFight card. ShoFight 24 was loaded with championship caliber fighting as every featherweight that competed in the tournament deserves to be credited as it was a grueling competition.
In the main event, Ross Campbell (7-0) defeated Jason Powell (8-4) via standing guillotine in round one to become the BMF Champion. Campbell went through a murderer's row of featherweights on his way to the top including Powell who is champion for Cage Championships. Many current or former champions competed in this tourney including ShoFight Champion Daniel Blair, but this night belonged to Campbell who proved that he was more than just a top ShoFight Challenger, he was a champion. Powell used some tremendous grappling throughout the tourney to keep his body fresh and had worked towards this goal for 3 months leading up to the fights. Earlier in the tourney Campbell defeated Cory Heinz by guillotine and Hardy Friely (COH Bantamweight Champion) by triangle choke to make it to the finals.
In other action, Kate Collins (3-3) won her return bout to ShoFight by rear naked choke over Hannah Eagle (0-1) in round one after only 36 seconds. Collins looked tremendous on her return to flyweight and the sky is the limit for his fighter.
