With the right set up of circumstances it might even be for the title if you can beat the champ (my prediction is Mew Choo remains champ), I continue to win and Steve Butabi loses but regardless of any of that Brooklyn Brawler will gladly fight Android Seventeen anytime anyplace.

I truly believe if you earned a title shot take it before someone upsets you and takes your spot, that being said I wish Android Seventeen the best of luck for his title shot he earned however I know both of us would never back down from a fight and the second your free whether your champ and I earn my title shot or you lose ill gladly take you on again.  Keep in mind there is a chance, even if slight that we meet in new blood tournament against each other in the finals so we might be fighting for a title regardless.  Terry Crew has been the underdog every round and that wont change however how many of my first 3 fights with Damien Demento was I the favorite?  Hint, it was the only fight he has lost so far and it was with Steve Butabi who has been on an tear with a 4-0 record all ifc fights,

Ironman Fight Club XV (9th September 2017) - Post Fight Recap
 
A very solid and eventful evening for the IFC tonight with quite a few surprise results. 
 
In the main event of the evening, the IFC Open Weight title was on the line as champion Mew Choo made his second title defense since taking the strap from Steven "The Steamroller" Kennedy. He faced undefeated "Corpse Making Cowboy" Don Joe who had made his way over from Empire Grind and was the last man to hold their middleweight title before the company went quiet. 
The fight was set for five rounds but we didn't even need five minutes before the champion reemerged with his gold belt and undefeated streak intact. Some aggressive and precise striking ended the bout at 0:23 of the first round and sets Choo on a collision course with possibly his toughest test to date, number one ranked contender "Red Ribbon Armys" Android Seventeen. Seventeen is currently 7-1 overall and hasn't lost a fight in his last five. Frighteningly all of his seven victories have come by way of KO. 
 
The Co-Main event saw #6 ranked Brooklyn Brawler take on Jaime Hudgens who sat just outside the Top 10 overall. It was a big fight for Hudgens and on this occasion he fell short getting caught with a showcase superman punch KO at 2:28 of the first round. Brawler now moves up to #3 and is looking very much like a true title contender
 
Other notable fights from this evening include BJJ practitioner Daniel "The Unsanitary" Sainty snatch a submission victory from Delwyn "Born Wynner" Baines right at the very last moment. Baines was up two rounds to Sainty's zero going into the final round but an early takedown put Baines exactly where he didn't want to be and was unable to hold on until the final bell. Sainty by Armbar 3:54 of Round 3 and with this win re-enters the Top 10 at #10
 
150lb submission wrestler Akio Yamamoto had a great result against 300lb David Oconner catching the big man with a kneebar in just under a minute. Yamamoto put together a well executed game plan in avoiding the heavy hands of Oconner and as a result adds another win to his record. 
 
Brock Sampson, who is from the same camp as Brooklyn Brawler and Damien Demento, made an impressive debut to his IFC career taking out Victor Belfort by TKO at 2:56 of Round 1. 
 
Lastly, and the biggest upset in IFC history so far, Jon "Under The Thumb" Anderson broke his seven fight losing streak with a submission victory over former ranked contender Pero Kostolomac. Kostolomac was a huge favorite going into this bout and had a massive advantage in the stand up. Unable to capitalize and coupled with some tactical errors, the fight hit the floor where Anderson was able to secure a rear naked choke just before the end of round 1 and pick up his very first MMA career win.

Ironman Fight Club XVI sept 16 fight preview

 

 

Match 1: Bricks "Parpaing" Thrower (5-4, 205lbs) vs Boyd "The Vanilla Og" Clark (2-4 ,170lbs)

 

Both fighters are still very young and still have a long way left in their career however neither fighter has been super impressive so far.  On one hand we have Brickers Thrower with a winning 5-4 record who seems to be very hard to predict since he throws everything at you, though it seems he does not accel at anything, he is definitely the more well rounded fighter.  Boyd Clark seems to be more of a mt fighter though in 6 fights he has 1 ko victory, 1 decision victory and 4 ko loses so he is known to be finished more than he can finish.  While on paper this is not an exciting fight, anything could happen from a stand up to a ground fight and it will not be predictable at all and those can be the best kinds of fights.  Good luck to both of them in turning around their career.

 

Match 2: Mr Pillage (1-1, 150lbs)   vs James "The Nervous" Gregor (3-4, 205lbs)

 

I will not be using the full name for Pillage as it does not translate well in English however what did translate well was his IFC debut where he got a round 2 tko victory vs Boyd Clark.  So far in his short career Mr Pillage has shown us that he likes to clinch and he likes to punch and so far he has punched real successfully.  James Gregor on the other hand is a very interesting vet in the IFC with some mixed results.  He is an excellent boxer and has dangerous gnp and all of his fights has led to a finish so far.  I do not expect this fight to go to decision but I am very uncertain of what will happen.  Pillage will most likely want to take this fight to the clinch as I do not expect that he can out box Gregor.  It is also to note if he wants to clinch he needs to worry about Gregor's size and strength advantage. On the other hand if Gregor can utilize his takedowns for some gnp he might not need to worry about being controlled in the clinch.  For a low card fight this is definitely one of the more interesting ones we will see of the night.

 

Match 3: Lenny 'Fagan Blaster' Manelito (2-3 ,185lbs) vs Boss Yonic (4-3-1, 185lbs)

 

While both fighters in this open weight division are the same weight, the fighters could not be anymore different when it comes to fighting style.  We have the classic striker vs wrestling match up however Lenny has never been able to finish a fight and Boss Yonic has only lost by submission which I do not expect to see from Lenny tonight.  It is also to mention that Boss Yonic has the only draw yet to date in the IFC and it was against exciting up and comer Cattan Engoria.  Clearly in my opinion Boss Yonic is the heavy favorite however people love upsets and underdogs and it would be a good start to a turn around if Lenny Manelito could finish the former top ten Contender Boss Yonic.

 

Match 4: Naiki "The Drunken Finnish Demon" Nekele (4-2, 260lbs) vs Lavar Washington (1-0, 242lbs)

 

So far in his exciting career Naiki is getting to be known for two things, his granite chin that has not failed him yet with 0 ko loses and his Kicks.  Most of the kos I normally have seen in the IFC are from punches or strikes but not so much Head kicks which is how he won both fights that he got a ko victory.  Than there is the returning youngster who has not fought since IFC XI.  His only fight was very dominating and he seemly has boxing that could potentially demolish fighters in the stand up if given the chance.  While Naiki is getting close to breaking into the top 10 and has more experience in fighting, Lavar seemly has worked really hard on his boxing and I wouldn't want to be the guy fighting him in stand up.  I feel like a lot is at stake for a fight that is only 4th on the card because it could be Nekele's ticket to the top 10 or Washington's big win as he starts to climb the ladder.

 

Match 5: Paul Michael Levesque (3-4, 255lbs) vs Gin Kobra (3-4,  140lbs)

 

Paul Levesque has yet to be knocked out so far losing 3 of his matches by way of submission.  He also seems to like to use his gnp skills even though he is a white belt bjj and it has been proven to be a problem in the past.  Gin Kobra is a higher belt in BJJ but he has yet to try to win a match via submission so far though I would think its possible he will try to if he gets into trouble on the ground.  Even though I have not seen it really utilized yet but Levesque does have some decent boxing he can work with as well.  Gin Kobra is used to using his Boxing skills so this might not be the day for Levesque to try to win with stand up but his boxing skills might help him last longer enough to get to the ground.  I think if Levesque gets his hands on Gin Kobra and bring him to the ground it will be a quick easy ground and pound finish for the much larger fighteras long as he can stay away from Gin Kobra's better BJJ skills.  Gin Kobra is on a 3 lose steak falling from the top 10, so this is a must win for him if he doesn't want to be known as a mid carder.

 

Match 6: Iain "The CN" Tower (2-0, 275lbs) vs Toghrul Rasizrade (2-2, 162lbs)

 

In his IFC debut Iain Tower needed 50 seconds to completely ko his opponent with leg kicks.  In a qfc fight he also showed his ability to use his bjj to tap people out as well so he is a very exciting young prospect who believe might be on his way to the top 10 somewhere soon in the future.  Here to spoil that is the much smaller tricky wrestler who last time fought older Damien Demento to a decision lose in what many believe to be a close fight though he really lost the fight on the ground which is where he definitely wants to take it this fight.  He must be very wary that he is fighting someone with better bjj and he cant get sloppy on the ground in this fight or it could be over via submission.  Iain has a much better stand up game and is the favorite in this fight but Toghrul has clearly been working on his boxing for some time now and keeps making improvements to it.

 

Match 7: Damien "The Terror" Demento (3-1, 185lbs) vs Greg "The Gronk" Bell (3-5, 300lbs)

 

I think a lot of people see Greg Bell as a former top 10 star who is now going to the middle of the pact but he has a big chance to prove why he has been a big part of IFC since the first card.  While Bell has lost his last 3 fights he has a couple advantages other than experience coming into this fight.  Just like any other Ground Fight Bell has been in, he is the bigger stronger gnper and in this fight he also has a higher BJJ belt than the smaller Wrestler who has been on a roll lately.  There is another thing to see here that not everyone might notice but Gronk is not afraid to strike and the last wrestler fight Demento was in he lost the striking battle to Toghrul Rasizrade even getting cut while trying to get to the ground.  Being better at striking as well being the bigger stronger fighter might take a lot out of Demento before Gronk unloads his dangerous gnp.  Demento is known for his Dangerous gnp as well, cutting Jimbo Bradbrook bad enough to make the ref stop the fight in round 2.  However if he makes the wrong move he could easily fall into a submission by Gronk who loves to wait and let his opponent make a mistake.  Can Demento get one step closer to the top 10 or will he be another victim of the man who is tied for most IFC card fights in its short history?

 

Match 8: Serj "Chop Suey" Malakian (4-3, 185lbs) vs Vic "Bonebreaker" Nikolai (5-4, 185lbs)

 

We have almost a mirror of match 3 but with two IFC vets who started all the way back in IFC2.  They both have recently lost to rising star Steve Butabi on their way to the top and could use a win in their quest for the top.  Vic Nikolai will be wanting to take this fight to the ground but he does have a history of getting tkoed early in round 1 when met with some strikers and Malakian has a history of koing his ground savvy opponents within the first minute of the fight.  If Nikolai can weather the early storm from Malakian and get this fight to the ground than he will be in a great position.  This match is a classic case of a striker with not so great wrestling trying for a quick finish before he can get taking over by the ground game.  The big question though who is the favorite in this match because I could see this going either way and one thing is certain, no one wants to lose with all these new rising stars and signees coming in because no one wants to be left in the dust in the title hunt.

 

Match 9 (co main event): (8) Eldar Tskhadaia (5-1, 243lbs) vs (9) Steven "The Steamroller" Kennedy (4-3, 178lbs)

 

Steven Kennedy has been the underdog every single fight since winning the IFC title awhile back, why should this match be any different.  This is a position he is used to being in however this is a must win fight if he wants to be taken seriously about getting another title match which is an unfortunately situation for a former IFC champion.  Elder Tskadaia is known for his gnp, something he has used to cut 3 people bad enough to get the ref to stop the fight.  Sure that's not as interesting as getting kos but he still gets finishes and brutal ones at that.  Kennedy will need to use his superior BBJ to tap out Tskadaia before he can do too much damage.  With so many people trying to get their spot into the top 10 it is interesting to note that unless they get a draw, someone will be giving up a spot in the top 10.  For one fighter, this will be a ticket to being taken serious in the top 10 but can Steven Kennedy once again prove all the disbelievers wrong that his title run was not a fluke? 

 

Match 10 (main event): (2)  "Big" Steve Butabi (4-0, 290lbs)  vs (4) Ricky "Big Tex" Hughes (7-2, 264lbs)

 

If you like big hard hitting stand up fights than this might be one of the biggest main events you can have right now that is not for a title.  Former IFC champion Ricky Hughes is known for big exciting fights and finishes as well as not losing a fight yet that wasn't for the title.  The man who wants to change this fact is fastest rising star the undefeated Steve Butabi. Not many people in the IFC are bigger than Hughes psychically but Steve Butabi is known for making short work of his opponents.  Only one fight so far from Butabi has gone more than one round and it was a true test of his granite chin as he spent most of a round getting stomped by Damien Demento's gnp but he came out of the round almost unfazed to win by tko 33 seconds into round 2.  While being stand up fighters known for kos, Hughes throws all sort of strikes from combos to head kicks while Butabi seems to like punching as his effective method of hurting people and he has a clinch that I wouldn't want to be stuck in.  Hughes has proved to be very resilient and is without a doubt the second biggest known star in the IFC besides current undefeated champion Mew Choo.  Even though Butabi is higher ranked for this fight, he is definitely considered the underdog though a big win here would almost certainly mean a title shot in the future one would assume.  People have been waiting for Butabi's bubble to burst but it still hasn't and if he can knock off one of the most popular fighters in the IFC amazing things will be seen in Butabi's future.

Ironman Fight Club XVI (16th September 2017) - Post Fight Recap
 
The Ironman Fight Club continues to grow with it's second highest rated event so far. 
 
In the main event of the evening, the fastest rising star in the IFC "Big" Steve Butabi took out former champion Ricky "Big Tex" Hughes in a short but very sweet slug fest that left Hughes out cold. With fighters this size, any direct hits are going to cause damage and though both mixed it up on the feet on this occasion Butabi was just a little more accurate with what he dished out. Steve Butabi defeats Ricky Hughes via KO 1:32 Rd 1.
Butabi remains undefeated after five fights and retains his #3 ranking while Ricky Hughes slips down from #4 to #6 after suffering his second consecutive loss in a row. 
 
Co-Main event of the evening saw #8 ranked Eldar Tskhadaia grind out a unanimous decision victory against another former champion in #9 Steven "The Steamroller" Kennedy. It wasn't pretty and Tskhadaia won't have gained many fans with the manner in which he won but in an industry where the only thing that matters is getting your hand raised at the end of the fight, a win is a win. Tskhadaia now moves back up to #4 with a record of 6-1 and Kennedy drops out of the Top 10 for the first time since the IFC's inception.
 
Other noteworthy events from tonight's fights include IFC veteran Vic "Bonebreaker" Nikolai breaking into the Top 10 for the first time in his IFC career. Nikolai made his debut at IFC II and has had ups and downs but his consistency finally paid off and a win over former #1 contender Serj "Chop Suey" Malakian tonight was enough to push him into the upper echelons of the IFC roster at #9. Vic Nikolai defeats Serj Malakian via Submission 3:24 Rd 1. Congrats to the "Bonebreaker"
 
Damien "The Terror" Demento had a good win over Greg "The Gronk" Bell taking his overall record to 4-1 with a win streak of 3. Demento now sits just outside the Top 10 waiting for his opportunity to really break through. Bell on the other hand has now lost 4 in a row and slips firmly into the middle of the pack. Damien Demento defeats Greg Bell via Decision
 
Iain "The CN" Tower is looking frightening quite frankly and continued on his young journey with a crowd pleasing head kick KO over wrestler Toghrul Rasizade at 1:56 of Round 1. 
 
Gin Kobra put together a very effective gameplan to nutralise the powerful takedowns and GnP of heavyweight Paul Michael Levesque and ended up with a unanimous decision victory. 
 
Lastly James "The Nervous" Gregor, a man who once sat rock bottom of the IFC roster has now put two wins together in a row and came away with an impressive KO victory over Mr. Pillage. Gregor has been looking better as of late and we look forward to seeing just how far he can take this reversal of fortune. James Gregor defeats Mr.Pillage via TKO 3:59 Rd 1
