Wannamacher defeats Walters in MMA competition

Wadena's Jesse Wannamacher won a Cage Fighting Extreme mixed martial arts fight Saturday with Mankato's Dale Walters in Brainerd.

The 155-pound fight saw Wannamacher claiming the victory in the second round with an Anaconda Choke.

"This whole fight was controlled on the ground," Wadena STOMP and Mixed Martial Arts Coach Joe Jasicki said. "It was jiu-jitsu ground fighting."

Wannamacher has been offered a title shot in a North Star Combat MMA bout Oct. 19 at Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen. His opponent in the 145-pound fight is yet to be determined.
