Gray “The Bully” Maynard lived up to his nickname on Wednesday night as he controlled a tough match with lightweight division (155-pound) foe Roger “El Matador” Huerta. The highly-anticipated match lived up to the hype as the two fighters went toe-to-toe for three rounds in the Octagon.
Maynard displayed great skill and intensity, as well as top-notch striking in winning the co-main event before a lively crowd at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. This win extends his unbeaten streak to nine and puts the former All-American wrestler near the top of the lightweight division as a title contender.
Before Wednesday’s fight, Cash4Gold entered into a three-fight sponsorship with Maynard (announcement). In addition to the new deal with Maynard, the company’s MMA sponsorship roster also includes elite fighters Randy “The Natural” Couture and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.
Everyone at Cash4Gold congratulates Maynard on a big win and looks forward to his next appearance in the Octagon.
