Weekend Results: Quinn Mulhern Retains King of the Cage Title

Quinn Mulhern continued his rise over the weekend as one of the names to watch out, successfully defending his King of the Cage welterweight belt against Anselmo Martinez at King of the Cage: Texas in Lubbock, Texas.

Mulhern, now 15-1, tapped out Martinez with a rear-naked choke at four minutes and 48 seconds of the first round for his third title defense and tenth career submission victory. The 26-year-old Mulhern of Santa Fe, N.M. made a name for himself last year with a TKO win over UFC veteran Rich Clementi on HDNet.

Let's look at other notable fights from this past weekend.

-- On the same King of the Cage: Texas card, Dan Severn (99-16-7) won his tenth straight with a submission over Aaron Garcia.

-- Bellator season four welterweight competitor Chris Lozano (7-1) bounced back from his first career loss by stopping Gerric Hayes at NAAFS' Caged Vengeance 9 in Canton, Ohio.

-- Charles Bennett ("Krazy Horse") dropped his fourth straight, losing to Jason Gybels at Saturday's Caged Combat 3 in Grand Ronde, Ore. The ground game has been Bennett's Achilles' heel and the loss was Bennett's 16th career submission loss.
