Main Event

Stipe Miocic defeated Francis Ngannoua via unanimous decision. By weathering the storm that is Francis Ngannou in the first round and playing his strategy well Stipe literally exposed the one-dimensional predator. Francis had very little success in the first round as he landed few heavy shots and defended the take downs well. But he got predictable, Stipe started to implement his game plan. Right after the first round, Francis was all gassed out unable to continue the same pace. Stipe’s excellent wrestling and ground game made Francis confused leaving him clueless on the ground. As the rounds progressed, Francis looked more and more tired. It was clear he was a beaten man in every round. Stipe’s victory marks the new era of heavyweight championship with three successful title defences.

Daniel Cromier defeated Volkan Oezdemir via TKO. With the ring of the bell, Cromier had only one game plan – to take Volkan to the ground and submit him just like he did his team mate. Volkan’s hands start flying and look to connect to the champion. Cromier takes some shots from Volkan but stays unfazed. Cromier now begins to unload with his own left and right. He hits back Volkan with a big left and stuns his right eye. Cromier then takes the fight to the ground in closing moments and is near to finish Volkan with a choke but time runs out. By the end of the first round, Volkan is a broken man unable to solve the puzzle. In the second round, Cromier needed just 20 secs before he takes Volkan to the ground and has him in the crucifix position unable to defend the punches. Volkan is locked and trapped – the referee had seen enough and stops the fight at 2:00 of the second round.

 

Calvin Kattar defeated Shane Burgos via TKO. Shane draws the first strike with a jab, left hook and another jab. Calvin realizes the fight is on and tries to find his range with constant lefts and rights. He keeps finding Shane’s head with every strike and counter strike from his end. Shane just keeps eating them like their nothing, butย  his face is turning into red. They both go back and forth to end the first round but Calvin is clearly ahead in the scorecard. Shane gets a pep talk and comes back a different fighter. His pressure is working and bloodies up Calvin’s face as the round ends. As the third round opens, Calvin lands a big overhand right and sees an opening and lands a straight right that wobbles Shane. The uppercut seals the deal and sends Shane to the mat where the fight is stopped.

Gian Villante defeated Francimar Borrosa via split decision. Villante opened the first round with a big over hand right and quickly senses the fear in Borrosa’s eyes. Borrossa looks nervous as he backs up against the cage to every strike from Villante. His only success come from few leg kicks and strikes to the body. But Villante kept the pace going with second. In the second round, the fight turned into a brawl for a moment when both these light heavyweights engaged into a telephone booth fight. With this win Villante snaps his two fight losing skid.

Rob Font defeated Thomas Almedia via TKO in round 2. Rob Font comes out with a single minded strategy – to systematically pick apart Almedia with his aggressive pace and constant pressure. Almedia counters with his kicks but is slow to open up while Rob continues to move ahead as the first round comes to a close. In the second round, Rob lands a crisp jab and cross that stumbles Almedia for a moment. Rob unleashing some body shots on to Almedia who is backed up. Almedia throws a left which Rob slips to and lands a head kick. Almedia is in deep trouble as Rob lands multiple uppercuts to drop him to the ground as the referee steps in to stop the fight at 2:24 secs of round 2.
