No, this is not a figment of your imagination, this is Justin Credible bringing you a preview of Island FC’s next event: Cutthroat Island!
The main card starts off with two veterans trying to push their winning percentage to .500. HaroldArmstrong v Mark Munoz is going to be a stand-up war, and is a strong contender for FOTN. Mark Munoz has been on a 2 fight winning streak since starting his career off going 0-3. He’s realized his mistake and is trying to right his wrongs, and thus far it is working. Harold Armstrong is coming off of a much needed win that seen him break his 3 fight losing streak, he also is looking to continue down the path of W’s. He believes he has the advantage over Munoz, especially since he has a win against him in their debut fight(s). Munoz believes he has evolved, while Armstrong has stayed stagnant. Time will tell, I’m going with Mark Munoz to continue his run.
Galvin Tse v Retu Kivinen starts us off next! We have two hungry fighters ready to jump at the chance to climb up the LHW ladder. Galvin Tse is a KO artist with heavy hands and a lot of confidence coming into this bout. His opponent is a well-rounded fighter with a chin of granite. Retu Kivinen thinks that his game plan will be the difference in this fight and thinks that Galvin Tse is over confident. Tse has assured critics and fans he is taking this fight very seriously and wants nothing more than to win this fight, by any means necessary. I’m going with the KO artist, Galvin Tse in this one.
The next fight we see features Frank Karlsson v Legend Wait For It in a highly anticipated LHW fight. Legend is an up and coming fighter with a record of 3-1, with 2 of those wins coming by way of (T)KO. He jumped at the chance to take this fight because he knows a win over a IFC veteran like Karlsson would mean instant fame for him, and it’d be a huge name to add to his record. Frank Karlsson is a legendary name here on The Island, he was one of the first LHW title challengers and hold a big name. He’s recently lost 2 fights in a row, but many still believe he has a title run left in him. He recently went to war with LHW champion Uzziah Judah in a ‘Fight Of The Year’ candidate. He’s taken some time off and believes he has been reinvigorated and refreshed, and he looked more than ready at his open workout! I’m picking my man, Frank Karlsson to win this one!
CO-MAIN EVENT TIME!!!! Herminio Herculano v Richard Machan! This is your classic striker versus grappler match. Herculano is a former 155lb champion and is certainly looking for another title shot, he thinks a win over Machan will earn him that shot. He wanted this fight because he wants to prove to the world he can beat a BJJ fighter and his loss was a fluke. Richard Machan is 1-0 and wanted this fight too, he believes he can submit the former kingpin and launch himself into title contention with a huge upset win over Herculano. Will the rising star use this as a platform and set himself into stardom, or will the former champ regain his composure and eanr another shot at gold? Time will tell, but I’m sticking with Herminio Herculano in this one!
Carlos Newton v Rick James 2 is our MAIN EVENT! A re-match between these two has been talked about since the first fight ended. The BJJ brown belt, against the Muay Thai expert. Rick James was on an eight fight streak before he was derailed against Carlos Newton, in what many call a fluke submission finish. James is Hellbent (free advertising) on revenge and has been salivating about this fight since he lost his title. Rick James said, “The first fight was a complete fluke, he wants to pull a Ronda Rousey move? I’ll pull a Holly Holm.” Carlos Newton is a highly decorated BJJ brown belt and now the current IFC MW champ. He is 7-0 and is looking more and more dominant by the minute. He vows to do the exact same thing in the re-match, and when reached out to for a comment said this, “Next time I’ll break his fuckin’ arm.” YIKES!!!! This one will be intense and is a hard one to choose from, I’ll take my chances and pick Carlos Newton to retain his belt. No, this is not a figment of your imagination, this is Justin Credible bringing you a preview of Island FC’s next event: Cutthroat Island!
