Amber Stautzenberger Submits Summer Artherton At Dakota FC 14!!!

Jan. 26th, 2013
Amber “The Apex Predator” Stautzenberger picked up her first
pro victory in quick and impressive fashion tonight at Dakota Fighting
Championships 14: “American Dream” in Fargo, North Dakota. The
Texas-based strawweight fighter submitted Summer Artherton with
an armbar in just 67 seconds.
Stautzenberger wasted no time in taking her opponent down to the
ground. She passed straight to mount and transitioned to the
fight-ending armbar. The swift win gets Stautzenberger back on track
after she dropped a close decision to “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant in
her September professional debut.
Stautzenberger (1-1-0) closed the distance right away and landed a nice kick-punch combination before clinching and taking Artherton (0-2-0) down to the mat. Within seconds, Stautzenberger moved from half-guard to mount and briefly struck from the top until Artherton rolled to try to escape. Stautzenberger took advantage by latching onto Artherton’s arm and pulled back on an armbar. Artherton again tried to roll free, but she could not and was forced to submit.
Tonight’s win was Stautzenberger’s first as a professional and first at 115 pounds. She amassed a 4-3 record as an amateur against formidable opposition in bouts that were primarily contested at weights above 120 pounds.
Winner: Amber Stautzenberger by Submission (Armbar) at 1:07 of round one. She improves to 1-1-0.

Amber Stautzenberger Defeats Glena Avila At Dakota FC 15
Article by:
Amber “The Apex Predator” Stautzenberger kept her winning streak alive with a close
decision victory tonight at Dakota Fighting Championships 15: “Spring Brawl” in
Fargo, North Dakota. The strawweight prospect edged out Glena “Heartless” Avila, who
stepped into the fight on short notice.
Both women threatened with numerous submission attempts throughout the
back-and-forth bout. Avila came on strong at the end of rounds one and two, but her
late rallies were not quite enough to sway the cageside judges and Stautzenberger’s
dominant final round solidified her win on the scorecards.

DALLAS, TX, July 29, 2013 – Local area women’s MMA rep Jinh Yu Frey
(Mohler’s MMA) moved to 2-0 in her pro career this past weekend by virtue of a
knockout of the night performance at the Sugar Creek Showdown – Declaration
of Pain event held at the Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, OK.
Competing as usual at atomweight (95-105 lbs.) on the SCS #18 card,
Jinh Yu Frey took on an experienced opponent in Darla “Train Wreck” Harris (3-3).
Fight out of Pariah MMA in Colorado Springs, CO, Darla won her first three fights
as a pro before losses in her next two bouts before this one. As it turns out, her
third loss in a row hit her the hardest, quite literally.
Setting things up right from the opening bell, it took Jinh less than a round to
score the big knockout on her opponent with a beautiful combo punctuated by
a left high kick and straight left to end the fight in devastating fashion.
With this victory, Jinh Yu Frey stays undefeated as a pro fighter at 2-0 and also
allowed her to defend her SCS belt – the first title of her young career.
No word yet on what is next for the 28 year old Arlington resident but with her exciting style coupled with the burgeoning popularity of women’s mixed martial arts and all-pro women’s MMA league Invicta Fighting Championship it wouldn’t be a surprise at all to see her get picked up sooner rather than later.
DFW Pro Prospect Camron Couch Keeps It Rolling With Title Win In 3rd Amateur Fight

DALLAS, TX, August 4, 2013 – Another Dallas area MMA representative brought a title belt back to the Metroplex this past weekend in Mohler MMA’s Camron Couch (3-0).
We last featured this 23 year old fighter way back in December 2011. Back then he was focused exclusively on grappling with the former wrestler spending time in Brazil to train with Gordo, Dennis Asche and crew down at Connection Rio. He’s been busy since then spending the past two years coaching wrestling and working in the MMA program over at Team Mohler.
Camron Couch successfully transitioned onto the MMA side with a TKO win over Cody Florence at Ascend Combat (Louisiana) this past March and would follow that up with another TKO victory on May 11th on the same promotion over Spenser Berniard.
The 23 year old would face his biggest challenge this past Saturday, August 3rd in taking on 11-fight veteran Tim Roman (5-6) for the Ascend Combat welterweight title in his just his third MMA fight.
It was a test he would pass with flying colors as he took home a unanimous decision win en route to bringing the belt back to DFW.
“It was a good fight,” says Cameron. “We had a battle and he got me with some good punches but I’m happy to get the win. I enjoyed fighting for the title but just winning is awesome because it makes all the sacrifice worth it.”  With a heavy output so far since debuting earlier this year, Camron Couch plans on defending his title in Louisiana this December and then focusing back on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition as well – possibly with an eye towards the Pan-Ams in early 2014 and the rest of the major competitions en route to a pro MMA career.
Considering his early success, this prospect is definitely one to watch in the near future. Keep an eye on this kid.
