Prater claims vacant title at PFC 13

Originally posted on

Pimental was one of three fighters to claim PFC gold on the evening. Carlo Prater (24-6-1) grabbed the vacant lightweight crown, while Pat Runez (2-0) earned the PFC's vacant flyweight title.

The three title fights were contested on the main card of PFC 13, which took place at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, Calif.


Earlier in the evening, six-and-a-half year veteran Prater put a halt to Dominique Robinson's (4-3) two-fight PFC win streak with a clear-cut unanimous decision win. The five-round battle left both fighters relatively unscathed, but Prater did enough to earn the PFC's vacant lightweight title in his first trip to the organization.


In other notable action, after struggling to make weight at Thursday's weigh-ins (though eventually registering 144 pounds), WAMMA's No. 3-ranked female featherweight Erin Toughill (10-2-1) earned a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Emily Thompson (3-1).
