Even if the adjective “stacked” is thrown around a little too much in mixed martial arts, the 21st installment of Shogun Fights may have actually lived up to that description. The card took place from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore on Saturday, April 6, and featured four title fights, even though one of those bouts did not have a clear-cut winner.
Shogun Fights bantamweight champion Greg Fischer and welterweight champion Micah Terrill both successfully defended their titles, while Tucker Lutz captured the lightweight title to close the show by knocking out Cole Presley in the first round. However, the light heavyweight title fight between champion Darren Costa and challenger Charles Gamble was ruled a draw, which should result in a rematch on a future Shogun Fights card.
