Flying 6 hours from Phuket Thailand to the island of Saipan for the fight, Ambrose made weight at 160 lbs before having his opponent withdrawal from the event. Accepting a last minute replacement, Ambrose was forced to fight a professional with a nearly 40lbs weight advantage.

Utilizing superior ground techniques, Ambrose passed guard and immediately secured the mount before finishing the fight with some vicious ground and pound. With the impressive performance look for JJ Ambrose to sign a contract with a major promotion sooner rather than later.
