A star was born last night in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
In the main event of Score Fighting Series 7, 23-year old Canadian Jordan Mein stopped tough-as-nails Forrest Petz in the first round and he made it look easy, knocking out the seven-fight UFC veteran with one of the most vicious barrage of punches, knees and elbows I’ve ever witnessed in all my years watching mixed martial arts.
Safe to say Mein doesn’t have to worry about getting a UFC contract offer when Strikeforce – to whom Mein currently owes his services to – folds up shop as expected in early 2013.
Mein was on loan to SFS from Strikeforce only because he had a scheduled bout at the cancelled November event (the one that was supposed to be headlined by Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir) and thus his fight with Strikeforce was scratched, so promotional matchmaker Sean Shleby let him take one fight with Petz in SFS in order to make his living.
The only caveat was that if Mein lost to Petz it would have counted as a loss agains...
