Florida Fight Squad "Of the Night" Awards Recap!
Venue: Power Plant (Raining)
Fight of the Night
Sergio Pizzorno (1-0) vs Dudley "The Powerhouse" Dilbrandt (0-1)
Winner: Sergio Pizzorno
Decision (Unanimous) / 3 minutes
Despite the pouring rain, intensity of the crowd, & the unnerving buzz of the nearby electrical machinery, these two 16-year old fighters were calm as a cucumber & ready to fight.
Dilbrandt, the taller, heavier fighter rushed forward aggressively trying to grab a hold of Pizzorno but the rain made it nearly impossible.
However, the poor visibility didn't seem to be a hindrance to Pizzorno as all of his punches hit their mark.
Pizzorno already having rocked Dilbrandt earlier in the fight sent his opponent crashing into the mud with a series of combos.
Pizzorno pursued him onto the ground looking for a finish.
Pizzorno tried all he could to finish the fight with a flurry of punches & elbows from the half guard but they either hit the air or the mud.
Dilbrandt hung in there on the defensive & even attempted a Guillotine that was easily escaped.
The fight ended shortly after that with a clear, concise winner.
I see a rematch in the future for these young stars in the making.
Knockout of the Night
Khizri Aliyev (1-1)
KO (punch) / 47 seconds
Aliyev's opponent attempted several takedowns at the start of the fight.
In these grappling exchanges, Aliyev was shoved right into the protective fencing mere feet away from the dangerous, electrical transformers.
Sensing the real danger he was in, Aliyev stepped on the gas & rocked his opponent with punches ending it with a massive overhand right leaving his Canadian opponent facedown in the mud.
Submission of the Night
Isaiah "Filthy" Laughlin (3-2)
Kimura / 57 seconds
While the poor weather conditions didn't favor grappling much at this event somebody forgot to tell Isaiah Laughlin.
After getting hit with a body shot & a big left hand, Isaiah changed levels & drove through with a really nice takedown into side control.
No so good for them was they managed to plow through & partially slide under the chain link security fence with both guys getting all cut to hell in the process.
Despite the slickness of the blood & rain water, Isaiah fished for armlocks until finally getting a good Kimura grip & finishing the hold tapping out his opponent.
