Yokkao 18 took place this past Saturday following Yokkao 17 in Bolton, England.
The main event for Yokkao 18 featured the highly anticipated re-match between Yokkao 70kg champion Sanny Dahlbeck and Jordan Watson. In March of 2015 Dahlbeck stunned many by stopping Watson to take the Yokkao title. This time around things would be different. Watson came out more aggressive this time around and was able to establish the pace of the fight. Dahlbeck was more than game and the pair fought a close fight, but in the end Watson was able to avenge the previous loss with unanimous decision win.
In the co-main event Ben Hodge scored a decision win over Chris Baya, and in another re-match taking place at Yokkao 18 Jake Purdy defeated Soloman Wickstead for a second time.
