XKO 26 goes down with a bang at Gas Monkey Live!
“El Oso” Rodriguez saw his return to fighting a triumphant occasion as he managed to stop touted local prospect Stephen Banaszak. Banaszak is a wizard with his array of kicks but Rodriguez had done his due diligence and was able to catch-and-counter to great success. A blistering hook from Rodriguez dropped Banaszak and after a follow up flurry on the ground the fight was waived off.
The official time of the stoppage was 1:46 in the opening round.
