Ray “Braddah” Cooper III successfully defended his X-1 Welterweight World Title on Saturday night against “Felony” Charles Bennet, in front of an enthusiastic MMA crowd at the Blaisdell Arena. The main event concluded with Cooper delivering a vicious left hook that dropped Bennett, and led to the fight being stopped at 2 minutes and 48 seconds of the second round.

In other action, Molokai’s Sale Sproat stopped Rafael Brewster with strikes less than minute into the first round to win the vacant X-1 World Middleweight title. Russell Mizuguchi edged out a split decision victory over Michael Nakagawa to become the  X-1 State Flyweight champion. The UFC’s featherweight champion Max Holloway was in the corner for Michael Nakagawa, while the UFC’s Donald Cerrone served as cornerman for Juan Gonzalez who won a unanimous decision victory over Kaeo Meyer earlier in the event. X-1 #48 was broadcast live on Spectrum pay per view with a video on-demand replay available on Spectrum channel 959.
