Leone vs. LaBerge Wiki Update Wiki

In the opening HDNet televised bout of Strikeforce: Fedor vs Silva, Josh LaBerge took on Anthony Leone.


LaBerge took the center of the cage to begin, until clinching up with Leone a minute into the fight. Leone landed an outside low kick that was countered effectively by LaBerge. The fighters exchanged knees in the clinch and then LaBerge landed a strong right as they broke up. Leone then mixed things up with a spinning back fist and a nice combination a moment later. Leone shot for a low single yet LaBerge defended nicely and rocked Leone with a knee to the body. Blood began to pour from Leone's nose as he took LaBerge's back and worked the fight to the ground. Leone, blood dripping onto the canvas as he worked in top position, passed to side control, yet the round expired before he could work for submissions.


In between rounds the fight was called off by the doctor, as Leone's nose was deemed too badly damaged. Josh LaBerge was declared the winner via doctor stoppage in the biggest victory of his career to date.
