HAMILTON – I-Deal Fitness athletes Kyle Sims and James Jones walked away with the gym’s first two wins in Mixed Martial Arts.
Jones, 23, won by a quick technical knockout (TKO) against Casey Looney of Albertville in a 155-pound amateur weight class bout that only lasted about two minutes. Their fight was the first of the night.
Sims, 27, a police officer in Hamilton, fought Christian Abbott of Locust Fork, earning a submission victory in the 165-pound amateur weight class--the first of his career.
Both fighters, who are from Hamilton, squared off with opponents during the Marshall County-based American Fighting League (AFL), which hosted a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) “Fight Night at the Mountain” on Saturday, July 10, at the Sand Mountain Park in Albertville.
