X-1 in Hawaii results - Dylan Clay submits Brandon Wolff in final minute & Satoshi Ishii DQ’d for late strikes
Honolulu, HI-X-1's third event of 2010 was a jam-packed 15 fight card that featured a welterweight title fight, Japanese heavyweight prospect Satoshi Ishii, and the kick off of the promotion's light heavyweight grand prix.
Welterweight prospect Dylan Clay (8-2) gave Kailua's Brandon Wolff (7-5) a rude welcome back to the Hawaiian MMA scene. Wolff returned to X-1 after a brief two fight run in the UFC where he suffered losses to Ben Saunders and Yoshiyuki Yoshida respectively. Clay was also looking to get back in the win column after dropping his last bout to Brazilian Adrinao Martins back in March.
Clay set the tone of the fight forcing the 170 title holder on his heels with a combination of punch and knee strikes for much of the first 10 minutes. In the third round a well timed knee from Clay dropped Wolff to the canvas. From the mount position Clay opened up Wolff with elbow strikes before attaching on a kimura submission at the 4:06 mark of round three.
With the win Clay continues to rank in the top 20 of unsigned welterweight prospects. At only 23 years old Clay's win over Wolff becomes the biggest highlight of his 10 fight career.
Less than a month removed from his first pro victory, 2008 Judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii (1-1) accepted an exhibition match versus local Ewa Beach heavyweight Myles Tynanes (3-1-1). The opening three minutes fight saw both combatants mix it up evenly. Fighting under exhibition rules of 3 x 3 rounds, Ishii landed the biggest blow of the fight with knock down in the closing seconds of round one.
Looking for the finish, the 23 year old Ishii unloaded punches on a fallen Tynanes until the final buzzer of the opening round and to the surprise of those in attendance Ishii ignored referee Steve Miyamoto's instruction to stop while scoring with several more punches after the bell.
The official ruling was a loss via disqualification for Ishii. The much ballyhooed heavyweight prospect will return to Japan with a strange exhibition DQ loss attached permanently to his record.
