Hecht always on top in punishing night of Mixed Martial Arts
The Cookie Monster recovers after failing to raid the jar
Cork city hosted Ireland's biggest ever Mixed Martial Arts event as seasoned pros and fresh faced amateurs squared up at Neptune Stadium on Saturday night.  American Middleweight Jake Hecht and Donegal's Joe Duffy were the star names on Cork's northside.  29 year old Hecht was always in charge against London's Craig White before a flurry of punches forced the referee to call a halt with two seconds left of the second round and White no longer defending himself whilst being held in a North South Choke.  Hecht has fought out of the MMA Clinic in Cork city for a few years now and plans to fight at Cagewarriors 43 in London in July.
Yet another KO for an unblemished Joseph Duffy
Hecht says, that while Cork is a big culture change from his hometown of Missouri, he tells us that he is most happy here.
Joe Duffy, complete with patriotic "Dún na nGall" insignia on his upper back; was also utterly dominant against Spanish veteran Oriol Gaset.  The lightweight tussle was the headline event of the evening and saw 23 year old Duffy open a cut over "The Cookie Monster's" left eye before knocking him flat on his back in the middle of Round One.  The fight was finished on a TKO decision that no-one would watching would argue with.  One felt that Duffy could have finished the fight any time he wished.  Dufffy says he is now "finished" with Ireland and wants to see what fights Britain and Europe has to offer.
