three grappling matches ended in submissions--one by

were the belts. This show featured no fewer than four
title matches. Matt Oakley of Carlson Gracie Academy
took the Stellar Fights Middleweight Title by armbar a

did the same in the third round, taking the Stellar
Fights Super Welterweight Title. For the Stellar
Lightweight Title, Richie Smith of CNC Promotions
guillotined Kenny Kirk with only one second left to go
