March 26th was an interesting night for Pinnacle FC. They had a pro/am event scheduled however due to circumstances beyond their control, a large number of fights fell off, leaving them with only five bouts, four of which were amateur. To the promotions credit, where most promotions would have called off the event, Pinnacle went through with it, not wanting to deprive the fighters who did their job, went through training camp and cutting and deserved to perform. That is a credit to them and an indication of why fighters SHOULD want to fight for them. The nights main event featured bantamweight champion Dominic Mazzotta move up to featherweight and defeat previously unbeaten Rob Hanna to become the promotions featherweight champion and put him one step closer to getting the call from the UFC. Below are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
