Blackburn Edges Chonan, Wins Third Straight

Originally posted on

In a showdown between ambitious welterweights with B-level resumes, IFL veteran Brad Blackburn edged Ryo Chonan by unanimous decision. All three judges scored it 29-28 in the American’s favor.

Blackburn (13-9-1) built an early lead against the former Deep champion, as he controlled the first two rounds with superior stand-up and highlighted exchanges between the two with crisp combinations.

Chonan threatened to end the match late, as he staggered Blackburn with a right uppercut with roughly half a minute to go in round three. However, Blackburn survived and notched his third consecutive win in the process. Chonan (15-9) -- whose claim to fame remains his spectacular submission victory against reigning UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in 2004 -- has lost two of his three fights inside the Octagon, both by decision.
