LOS ANGELES—Adult performer Dick Delaware, aka Aaron Brink, won his mixed-martial-arts fight in the California Cage Wars promotion last Sunday night in North San Diego County via a technical knockout in the first round.
Brink defeated Cody Sons in a catch-weight fight to become the interim light heavyweight champion of CCW in a short but brutal confrontation that ended with the referee calling a stop to the action when Sons verbally submitted from several unanswered strikes.
The 44-year-old Brink weighed 215.9 pounds for the fight, while the 25-year-old Sons—who came into the contest ranked as the No. 1 contender in the CCW heavyweight division—was 246.9 pounds.
“This fight will be my last fight ever in CCW and possibly in MMA,” Brink told AVN, adding he’s going to focus on a possible second fight in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, which is paying a higher premium for fighters.
The CCW card was held at a private residence in Valley Center, about 40 miles north of San Diego. Brink, who is 6-foot-3, says the 5-9 Sons “hit like a freight train.”
“I stuck to my game-plan and established cage control on Cody Sons with the intent of grinding him down to get top position then rain elbows and hammer fists until the bout was called by referee Aaron Peet at 1:38 of the first round,” Brink said.
“Defeating the CCW number one ranked heavyweight made me the interim champion of CCW until June 12th, when the title again became vacant due to CCW and myself not agreeing to terms of the next bout. I have left CCW organization indefinitely, making me a free agent.”
Sons sustained a nasty cut and went to the hospital after the bout; Brink didn’t leave unscathed, either, suffering a mild concussion, shattered elbow and aggravating a recurring injury—a hairline fracture in his left hand.
Brink (29-26, 2 NC) says there are talks of him facing another journeyman cage fighter, Joey Beltran, who attended the CCW fight to watch Brink, in BKFC 6. Brink and Beltran have been frequent sparring partners in the past.
An adult performer since 2002 who recently returned from a five-year hiatus, Brink performs two scenes a month for Stoney Curtis’ Lethal Hardcore, which sponsored him for the fight. He also received sponsor support from Wave Weapons, Kennedy Insurance, Compound MMA, Undisputed Gym and Ace Uniforms.
When he isn’t training MMA fighters or doing scenes, the native of Huntington Beach, Calif., works as a commercial diver for the Port of San Diego.
