(WAIPAHU, HAWAII) Friday, August 7, 2015 - Star Elite Cage fighting hosted some of the islands greatest up and comers on a night fitting to follow the previous weekend’s Destiny MMA card of finishes.

Pro 170 Bout
-Raynald “Bradda” Cooper def David Douglas 27 seconds into round 1
If you blinked you missed it. Bradda dropped Douglas with an opening punch and finished with ground and pound 27 seconds into round one. Done.
-Raymond Lopezdef Clint Daniels via TKO 3:43 sec into round 3
Round one opened in the center, but quickly hit the chain link with the two heavyweights jockeying for position. Daniel eventually secured the takedown and subsequent mount. Lopez was having trouble with the pressure of Daniel but hit who may have been a game changer with a leg trip to regain control the end of the round.
Round two opened with a vengeance and Lopez was seemingly intent on making up for lost time. Daniel was hit with a barrage of punches and kicks before the tow hit fence again. They battled takedown attempt for tacked own attempt spending little time against the canvass. Daniel was about take the back of Lopez and secure hooks while landing punches from the back, but could not get the submission in before the bell.
Lopez came out again in round three like a bull out of a shoot immediately pressuring Daniel who was able to reverse position and get the takedown off the cage. Daniel looked like he may continue to maintain control but was reversed and Lopez took back mount and then mount for the TKO finish.

-One of the best rounds of the night, the two flyweights locked up quickly and Mondala spent a good part of the early minutes defending the relentless rear naked choke attempt form Abadilla.
