Sprawl For All

HCL 23: DIPS! was the twenty-third mixed martial arts event held by the Human Cockfighting League. The event took place on August 18, 2013 from Mitre Square in London, England. Due to the time difference, this event took place at 3pm ET.

Event

This event featured seven sanctioned mixed martial arts bouts. All fights consisted of three five-minute rounds, except for the main event championship fight, which consisted of five five-minute rounds.

HCL Welterweight Champion Dwayne De Recha proved once again that he can make a claim for best pound-for-pound fighter in all of HCL, as he weathered a brief storm before soundly defeating Wes Blackwell. Blackwell made an early charge, but the striking acumen of De Recha proved to be far too superior to the Canadian brawler. De Recha nearly finished Blackwell in the first round, but Blackwell was saved by the bell. However, it did not take long in the second round for De Recha to make what was actually his first ever successful title defense.

The knockout of the night surprisingly goes to Corgi van de Groof, who made relatively easy work of the tough Spaniard, Ishmael Bowerstern. Corgi's strength is in his Muay Thai, and the Dutch kickboxer scored a strong head kick knockout to award him with a future shot at the HCL Light Heavyweight Championship.

Van de Groof's knockout won Knockout of the Night honors, but many were talking about the superman punch knockout of Lamar O'Neal. After a lackluster debut loss, O'Neal has come back with two strong knockout wins, which have earned him many fans, and potentially put him one marquis win away from a shot at the heavyweight championship. Currently, he is in prime position to continue moving up the rankings.
