Results – Hardrock MMA 95
Hardrock MMA 95 takes place tonight at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky, featuring a main event professional middleweight title bout between veterans Julio Gallegos (10-5) and Billy “Mojo” Horne (15-4). The event, which takes place at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, will serve as the promotion’s nine-year anniversary show.
Gallegos was initially slated to face Horne at Hardrock MMA 91 in July, but Horne suffered a broken toe just days before the fight. Joshua Thorpe stepped in, and Gallegos defeated the veteran via submission in the first round. Gallegos also defeated Tony Parker via submission in his hometown of Lexington in the Hardrock MMA 93 main event last month. Gallegos is also a multi-time XFC veteran and even competed in front of more than 57,000 people earlier this year at KSW 39 in Poland. He’s currently ranked as the No. 6 pro middleweight in Kentucky by Tapology.
The Cincinnati native Horne has been a mainstay at MMA events in the Queen City area for years, and he is still going strong despite turning 40 earlier this year. The one-time Bellator vet has won seven bouts in a row and hasn’t lost since 2011. Most recently, he submitted Michael Cockerham at Hardrock MMA 84 last October.
Adcock looks to snap out of a two-fight losing streak, as he most recently was knocked out by Jamal Mohammed at Hardrock MMA 91 in July. Ballou has picked up impressive first-round submission wins in each of his first two pro outings, including most recently over Eugene Barrett at Hardrock MMA 89 in May.
Shipp won the Hardrock MMA heavyweight title in February and then claimed the light heavyweight title in July with a TKO victory over Nick Jewell. Pierce also picked up a win over Jewell at Hardrock MMA 92 in September to earn a middleweight title shot.
18-year-old Stone Beverly (5-2) competes for the eighth time in his first year fighting, as he will face battle-tested Vision MMA veteran Ethan McGee (9-8) at featherweight.
The event kicks off at 7:30 PM EST and will be streamed live on BluegrassMMA.com. Check out the full results below.
