    Marez, Duarte Victorious in Primal MMA Debut

    [8/12/2007] Tijuana, Mexico, August 11 – Primal Mixed
    Martial Arts’ inaugural event, “The Next Level”, went
    off with a bang. Nearly 2,000 MMA fans packed the El
    Foro Jai Alai Palace to enjoy the promotions first
    ever show.

    In the main event, Chris “Monster” Marez (5-1) stopped
    Vince Lucero (18-13) by TKO (kicks) at 1:36 in the
    third round. Marez, 6’2” 280 pounds, and Lucero, 6’2”

    In another featured fight of the evening, Shaw “Quiet
    Storm” Bias (11-5) was defeated by Tijuana’s Antonio
    Duarte (7-1). Bias controlled the early rounds,

    The undercard was highlighted by a thrilling battle
    between Edgar “Motor” Osorio (5-1) and Ryan “Bones”
    Bixler (13-3). In the very opening seconds of the
    bout Bixler landed a devastating right cross that
    floored Osorio. It looked as if the fight might end
    early, but Osorio regained his composure and held on
    to Bixler in his guard. Osorio, the native of Oaxaca,
    Mexico, reversed Bixler and took his back for a moment
    before Bixler regained the top position again. After
    five rounds of intense competition the Judges
    unanimously declared Bixler the victor, as he had used
    his strong wrestling to control the dominant position
    for a majority of the fight.
