John Gotti III stole the show in his MMA debut, in Rhode Island, on a show promoted by Jimmy Burchfield on Friday night.
The grandson of the OG LCN bossman was king of the cage and stopped out his foe via a parade of strikes.
Here is a release which went out:
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Oct. 27th, 2017) – Making his professional debut Friday in front of a raucous crowd at Twin River Casino, welterweight John Gotti III stole the show on the preliminary card of “CES MMA 46.”
Gotti (1-0) forced his opponent, Vermont native Johnny Adams (0-2), to verbally tap due to excessive strikes at the 3-minute, 50-second mark of the opening round of their scheduled three-round welterweight bout.
The Oyster Bay, N.Y., native scored an early takedown and eventually cracked Adams’ defense, landing a series of right hands from the full mount position late in the round that left Adams bloodied and bruised before he tapped with just over a minute remaining in the round.
The Gotti-Adams fight was the fourth and preliminary bout before the AXS TV main card, which began at 9 p.m. ET.
