Robin Black FacebookThe Score Fighting Series has quickly established itself as one of the premier promotions for up-and-coming talent in Canada.

Their recent fifth show was their first live broadcast event on Canadian national television. It produced some of the most exciting fights the promotion has seen so far, according to color commentator Robin Black.

“It was definitely the best Score show we’ve had yet and I think it ended up kind of summing up everything really that Score has been working on for the last three or four years developing this series,” said Black. “Everybody works really hard to try to put together a good show and we have the best fighters in Canada, I think.”

Black was impressed, in particular, by the evening’s main-event winner.

Josh Hill, personally, I thought looked fantastic,” said Black. “I think when a guy (like Hill) takes down a guy (like John Fraser), who is that talented and put him on his back for 15 minutes and just feed him elbows, hammer fists and punches over and over again, I think that’s a pretty dominant win and personally found it pretty exciting.

“In my opinion, he’s ready for the UFC.”

Also standing out to Black was American Rick Glenn, who defeated Canadian featherweight prospect Tristan Johnson in strong fashion.

“I really was blown away by Glenn,” said Black. “We’d been hearing stuff from him in Milwaukee over the last year or so and he was as advertised, if not more.

“He is a really smart fighter, really game, fearless, and once he figured out how exactly he was going to win that fight, it was only academic. This guy really looked like he was on another level.”

It’s not only the fighters that are stepping things up. The promotion itself will expand across the border to the United States in October thanks to a newly announced television deal with AXS TV.

“The MMA business can be a vicious, dirty business, and here is this hard-working, honest, quiet, humble group of Canadians have slowly tried to learn the business together and build an honorable, quality MMA show, and have that show be selling out venues and on national television in Canada and now being on AXS – that’s a really big accomplishment,” said Black.

“I’ve got to do some pretty fun things in my life, and of all the things I’ve been involved with, this is by far the coolest.”

Black tells MMAWeekly.com that when American fans get a chance to see the Score Fighting Series, they’ll see a promotion that’s truly all about putting on the best show they can because of the love for the sport everyone involved with the company has.

“I’m really pumped for people in the States on AXS to get a chance to really see these young athletes and the way we present this card and how exciting and passion-centric it is.”
