BILOXI, Miss. – Mississippi favorite Jason “The Kid” Knight rolled to his 21st mixed-martial-arts victory in last Friday night’s iKON 5 event, presented by iKON Fighting Federation, in association with RJJ Boxing, at Biloxi Civic Center in Biloxi, Mississippi.

The 28-year-old Knight (21-6-0), fighting out of D’Iberville (MS), was coming off a major bare knuckle fighting win last November, stopping former UFC fighter Artem Lebov in the fifth round. Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai specialist Knight, who fought in the UFC between 2015 and 2018, defeated late replacement, Iowa featherweight Cliff “The Goblin” Wright (13-14-0), last Friday evening in the second round of the main event via a rear-naked choke.

In the co-featured event, contested at a 175-pound catchweight, Socrates “The Sounds of Kaos” Pierre (12-6-0), of Tallahassee (FL), locked in a DArce’ choke to submit local favorite Harris “Sandman” Stephenson (6-3-0) midway through the third and final round.

Tennessee strawweight Emilee King improved her pro record to 5-4-0 with a 3-round unanimous decision over West Palm Beach’s (FL) Kayla “K’Rock” Hracho (3-3-0), who had been undefeated in a pair of iKON fights.

“Fight Queen” Isis Verbeek (1-1-0), fighting out of Amsterdam, Netherlands, turned in a solid iKON debut, taking a 3-round unanimous decision from California strawweight Valerie “The Violator” Wong (0-2-0).

Louisiana welterweight prospect “The Ghost” AJ Fletcher kept his undefeated record intact (7-0-0) with a submission of Florida’s Wesley Golden (9-18-0) by way of a head-and-arm choke, while Louisiana strawweight Macy Breaux enjoyed an auspices pro debut, taking the top position and pounding Floridian Shawna “Bam Bam” Ormsby (2-3-0) for an opening round knockout.

Miami’s Charlie Decca (3-0-0) pummeled Kyle McGough (0-2-0) from the top position with an avalanche of punches to earn a first-round knockout of a fight contested at a 165-pound catchweight. In the opening bout of the evening, Alabama’s pro-debuting Griffin Fisk submitted Connecticut’s Alexandra Ballou (1-1-0) by way of a standing rear-naked choke in round one.
