4/7/2012 – Rahway, NJ

Shane Burgos (TSMMA Woodbury) (140.5) vs. RJ. Starace (140)
This bout is ruled a no contest due to an accidental foul at 3:00 of round one.

An unfortunate result after a promising start to the title bout. Shane Burgos had put the time in, trained hard for this bout, taking his game to the next level.  The bout was halted in the first round due to a knee strike delivered by Burgos. RJ Starace claimed the knee hit him  in the groin, and he could not continue, causing the bout to end in a no contest. Others in attendance say that the knee landed clean to the stomach, causing some controversy over the official result. Look for Burgos and Starace to rematch on a future card settling their unfinished business.
