Scott -vs- Manley

Scott drops professional debut to Manley

After holding the promotions amateur featherweight championship, Evan Scott took on Shane Manley in his professional debut. In the first round of their fight, it was clear that Manley had better striking. The Team Bombsquad fighter chipped away at Scott using leg kicks and strong punches. With the fight not going his way, the Lauzon’s MMA fighter dragged the fight to the ground where he sat on the bottom for the rest of the round, working for anything he could get.

The rest of the fight looked very similar, as Scott looked for submissions and sweeps off of his back. Unfortunately for the former amateur champion, he was unable to trap his opponent and ultimately lost the fight on the judges scorecard by a score of 30-27 across the board.
