Team Tompkins results at EC-Dec.5

Two Team Tompkins fighters made the trip to Chicago

to participate in Monte Cox/Jeff Currans Extreme

Challenge 55 in Lakemoor Il. In a bout at the 170 lbs

division, Alex 'Pecker' Gasson showed incredible

poise and discipline in dismantling his Team Shidokan

opponent, Andy Kozak. Pecker picked Kozak apart

standing up, then clinched for the takedown, worked

to full mount and secured a tight guillotine for the

tapout at 2:38 or round 1. In the other Team Tompkins

bout, Kurt Illeman who weighed in at 185 lbs. faced

his toughest challenge

against Team Militech standout Rory Markham. This

was a stand up war as some heavy leather was thrown

in the first minute, with Illeman blocking an early

high kick then working some great striking and

landing a viscious left hook that sat down Markham

and opened a huge gash under his right eye. Illeman

then rushed his opponent and continued the punishment

on the ground with great strikes that led the referee

to stop the bout to get the doctors opinion. At 1:27

of round 1 the fight was stopped due to the cut,

Illeman victorious via TKO. Special thanks to

Domination Fightwear, the gear was excellent, cheers

Congrats Team Tompkins. Another unsuspecting crowd gets to witness the "Pecker Dance". I had to wash my eyes for 10 minutes to try and get that sight out of my head.
