Adam Posener wins RITC MMA Title by RNC- Posener’s MMA Vancouver
On Saturday June 17 Adam ‘Primetime’ Posener wins the Rumble in the Cage (RITC) MMA Title with a 2nd Round Rear Naked Choke. Here is what happened.
This is my recollection as I do not having a copy of the fight yet. In the first round there was initially an exchange of strikes with Adam landing a low kick and Artsiom countering with punches, which were countered by a shot, a defensive entry and a resultant takedown. Both fighters were wanting to win and Artsiom was able to to achieve his guard. The majority of the round was a posture control battle in Artsiom’s guard where Adam was able to posture and regularly get some ground and pound. Artsiom was employing some posture control tactics, as they were getting a feel for the action. The majority of round one was GNP in the guard of Artsiom. Adam was working his game and considering time in the round.
In Round 2 after an initial probe of strikes, Artsiom threw his good front kick, which has landed in his previous fights well and he knocked out a previous opponent with a front kick to the face. Adam, however, was prepared for that and he countered the front kick with a low parry to a double leg, which was partially defended to a right and left punch offensive entry to a double leg, which was secured. There was some action on the cage and Adam was able to achieve the mount and land some blows. Artsiom tried to escape the position but exposed his back. Artsiom’s tripod escape putting Adam’s head against the cage was countered with a knee bar attack position, which stabilized the position and allowed Adam to sink in the Rear Naked choke at around the 2 minute mark of the Second Round.
Adam is now 4-0 in his Amateur career with 4 finishes. He is looking forward to the next steps, which are to be decided. He is a hard worker and has a lot of positive energy which he devotes to his practice in learning, and application.
