Cody Gabelman now 10-1

Gabelman Defends his Turfwars Title with a Unanimous Decision

In his first Title defense since winning the Midwest Fighting Alliance belt amateur fighter Cody Gabelman pulls off a unanimous decision win over John Walton (3-1) from Georgetown MMA in KY. Cody is on an 8 fight win streak and holds 4 of the top KY promotions belts. This was his first actual title defense. Walton  who trains out of Georgetown KY is normally a 135 lb. fighter decided to make the cut to 125 lb and challenge Gabelman for his belt.

Both guys came out exchanging punches in the opening minutes of the fight with Gabelman throwing a body kick that Walton was able to grab then he slammed Gabelman but Cody pulled full-guard and threw up a leg triangle. Gabelman worked to get the choke locked on but Walton was able to slip out into side-control. Walton then threw some shots of his own from the side but Gabelman was able to escape. Gabelman began to land some vicious strikes as he worked his way back to his feet.

In round 2 Gabelman was able to lock in a rear-naked choke and leg triangle deep but Walton was able to withstand. In between the two submissions holds Walton tried to get a heel hook but not for long as Gabelman was able to get free turn back to guard and throw up another triangle. The second round ended with Walton locked in the triangle choke. Walton spent most of the round locked up in a submission that he was able to avoid.  The final round just like the previous two rounds, Gableman was able to once again get the leg-triangle on Walton. Gabelman rolled Walton over on his back with the triangle still locked in and began to deliver hard shots from the top. Walton was able to slip out from the back and they continued to keep transitioning positions until the end of the 3rd round.

Cody Gabelman and John Walton fought hard all three rounds in this title fight from round 1 to round 3. Walton remained in Gabemans submission attempts for more than half the fight, but  Walton survived all three attempts.

Props to Georgetown MMA fighter, John Walton, who was not able to get a proper weight-cut in prior to this fight. Of course he did not attribute that to being the reason why he lost but thought, given better circumstances, he would have fared better. His opponent, Team G-Force fighter, went on to score a 30-27 unanimous decision victory to retain his title. Gableman now improves his record to an impressive 10-1 overall and continues his winstreak which now sits at nine fights.

It is not known at this time what the future holds for Gableman who has went on a tear in the region against some of the top flyweights in the division. The young fighter has a very bright future ahead of him and we only hopes he makes the most of it.
