Eyota native Logan Clark let out a few weeks worth of pent up aggression Saturday night during the main event of Gladiators, a nine-fight event sponsored by Kathy's Pub at Olmsted County Fairgrounds in Rochester.

After having this fight set and then canceled countless times, and not being medically cleared by the Minnesota Combative Sports Commission until Saturday afternoon, Clark was more than ready to step into the cage and take out his frustration on Chris Barden.

Clark shot across the cage as soon as the opening bell sounded, and he started throwing wild punches at an overwhelmed Barden.

Nothing landed solidly, but eventually Clark took the Rochester native to the mat and imposed his will. Before long, Barden was curled up in the turtle position, and Clark was picking his targets. First, he worked on the head. When Barden defended that, Clark unloaded on Barden’s kidneys. Soon referee Daryl Guthmiller was forced to stop the fight when Barden stopped defending himself.

The entire barrage lasted less than two minutes.

“It’s nice to finally be back in the win column,” Clark said. “I needed to get a win here at some point to get back to the bigger shows. It’s a decent win. It was nice to come out and throw strikes. I enjoy doing that.”
