Dilks wins MMA debut
at Rural Rumble
In the night’s bloodiest bout, Charles Dilks hung on for a majority decision win over Alex Wayman. The Carson City fighters battled through three rounds in their MMA debuts in a heavyweight (265 pounds) bout.
Dilks, who works for the Nevada Appeal, dominated the first round with crushing blows to Wayman’s head and face. Wayman suffered a black and swollen left eye, a bump on his forehead and was cut below the eye in the first round.
Dilks’ pressure kept Wayman on the defensive throughout the round as the two fighters brawled in what can be described as an old-time bare-knuckle brawl. The fight was stopped several times so Wayman could clean the left side of his face from the waterfall of blood.
“It was hard,” Dilks said. “Once I saw him hurt, I tried to go in for the kill. (He’s) a tough guy.”
Wayman, though, survived the first round and was able to wear down Dilks in the third. Wayman became the aggressor and kept Dilks on the run with countless punches and knees to the abdomen.
Wayman nearly earned a submission in the second round when he secured a guillotine hold, but Dilks was able to avoid the tapout as the bell sounded. In the third round, Wayman again found himself with a guillotine hold, but Dilks was able to break free.
“To be honest, he was going for the guillotine, but it wasn’t cinched up under my chin,” Dilks said. “He didn’t have it around my neck, so I didn’t feel I was in any danger.”
