Storley, Winn victorious at Sioux Falls Fight Night 1

Four former college wrestlers -- including Logan Storley and Deron Winn -- came out winners at Legacy Fighting Alliance's Sioux Falls Fight Night 1 mixed martial arts event at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. Saturday night.

The top of the card featured two UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships) veterans. David Michaud - who wrestled at South Dakota State - came out on top in his 170-pound bout vs. Jake Lindsey. Lindsey had attempted a takedown when he injured his knee and was unable to continue. With the win, Michaud improves to 11-3 in his pro MMA career.

Immediately prior to the main event, another home state hero -- former Augustana University (S.D.) mat standout Sid Bice -- came out on top in his bout, scoring a unanimous decision over Cody Land in a 125-pound flyweight fight. The judges scored it 30-26, 30-27, 29-27 for Bice, whose win boosts his record to 7-1.

Deron Winn
Logan Storley, four-time NCAA All-American wrestler at University of Minnesota, made short work of his opponent Andres Murray in their middleweight bout, ending the fight at 1:13 of Round One by TKO. The multi-time South Dakota state mat champ, in his first fight in a year (having injured his hand, then shoulder), pounded his way to his fifth win in his flawless pro MMA career ... while Murray falls to 2-1.

Deron Winn -- two-time NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) champ for St. Louis Community College, Meramec -- made a favorable impression in his second pro MMA fight. The light-heavyweight (205-pound) fighter from Missouri scored a TKO by strikes at 1:40 of the first round vs. Deven Fisher. Winn's latest win came on the heels of his pro debut in March when he destroyed an MMA veteran in less than 30 seconds.
