Wolfgang Übensplikt would like a rematch as he believes that the fight that he was winning was unfairly stopped with 4 seconds left in the fight.

IFC 62 Murhaa vs Jones

(August 4th, 2018 - King Theatre - Los Angeles)

 

 

Prelims

 

 

Fight 1 - Middleweight Division

2-2 IFC (3-3, 192 lbs) “Crazy Eyed” Dangerous Dan  VS  2-3 IFC (3-3, 185 lbs) Wrecking Ball

 

Live at King Theatre we start off the evening with two 3-3 fighters in a bout guaranteed to put one fighter with more losses and the other with the opposite. Neither fighter wants to be the one on the losing end of this fight, but Dan especially so, given the fact he has lost two straight fights after going 2-0 after joining the IFC. Both of these fighters are much better than the fighters typically seen in the prelims so this fight should start us off right.

 

Fight 2 - Middleweight Division

2-2 IFC (3-2, 190 lbs) Crusadius “Akhillius” Infidellus  VS  0-1 IFC (2-1, 182 lbs) “The Pilot” Temir Temirov

 

Continuing this exciting event with two more fighters on a quality rarely seen in the prelims, Infidellus goes up against Temirov in the middleweight division. Infidellus is much better than his record shows and losing to a man like Mollen is nothing to be ashamed of, how he recovers from the loss will ultimately decide where he goes from here. Temirov is in a similar situation coming off a loss in which he was the favorite Temirov has a lot to prove, but this highly talented Russian should prove up to the task.

 

 

Undercard

 

 

Fight 3 - Heavyweight Division

3-3 IFC (10-11-1, 245 lbs) Maddox “Hitman” Wood  VS  1-0 IFC (2-3, 300 lbs) Brandon “Hippopotamus” Bowen 

 

We begin our undercard with one of the few fighters with 10 wins under his belt against a 5 fight 28 year old. Wood joined the IFC late in his career, but even now at 30 he is managing to go toe to toe with the younger fighters who have exploded onto the scene. His combination of muay thai and jiu jitsu has helped him maintain his position within the heavyweight division. He will have his work cut out for him as he faces Bowen, a man who left for 5 months in order to train. Now he wants to make a successful return to the IFC in spectacular fashion and he won’t let Wood or anyone else stand in his way.

 

 

Fight 4 - Middleweight Division

6-9 IFC (6-9, 190 lbs) Yoshihiro Sexyama  VS  2-1 IFC (5-4, 220 lbs) General Snus

 

Next a slumping Sexyama takes on Snus who is coming off of a big win against Temirov. Sexyama has been slumping, losing three straight fights and a once borderline top 15 fighters now finds himself in the middle to bottom half of the middleweight division. However, he still has a decent following and if he can rekindle the motivation we could see him make a resurgence. Snus’ fights have all ended in the same way. Knockout. Snus refuses to let the fight go the distance and despite having gone to the third round multiple times whether he wins or loses it has been knockout in every one of his fights. This will be tough for Sexyama as all of his wins came via submission.

 

Fight 5 - Lightweight Division

2-4 IFC (12-15, 162 lbs) Joao Vitor Xavier  VS  0-2 IFC (9-6, 147 lbs) Jan “Champion” Jedrzejczyk

 

Next two fighters who have struggled since joining the IFC meet in a fight where the loser could find himself in the bottom half of the division and the winner in the upper. Both of these fighters are in the awkward position at the middle of the pack where their fates can be determined with a single win or loss. Xavier came to the IFC with decent hopes placed on him, but has not seen the results he was hoping for. Jan even more so came with high hopes and has been both literally and figuratively hit in the face. Starting off with two straight losses is not the way he wanted to start his IFC career and he really needs a win here.

 

Fight 6 - Heavyweight Division

4-0 #11 IFC (6-2, 270 lbs) Naoise “Beginner to Winner” Durnin  VS  0-1 IFC (7-4, 255 lbs) Maikel Fortuyn

 

In the last fight of the undercard our first ranker for the evening makes his appearance as Durnin tries to protect both his ranking and undefeated IFC record against Fortuyn who himself would be in the rankings if he had won his debut. Durnin has slowly crept forward in the rankings and after four straight wins he must be seen as a contender. Since he has started fighting with those towards the top half of the rankings he has been unable to finish fights and this could be cause for concern, but as long as he keeps winning you can expect him to keep climbing. Fortuyn came to the IFC highly regarded as a former contender in his last organization. However, his debut against Thompson resulted in a loss and Thompson running away with the #15 ranking.

 

 

 

Main Card

 

 

Fight 7 - Heavyweight Division

4-6 IFC (11-10, 270 lbs) Vincent Lemieux  VS  0-0 IFC (4-4, 244 lbs) Christophe Dupree

 

Our main event starts with Lemieux going up against Dupree who is making his IFC debut. Lemieux was one of the top 15 fighters in the IFC not that long ago rising all the way to 892 p4p in the world. However, now he finds himself a shell of his former self trying to hold on in an increasingly difficult division against lots of new talent. Dupree is one of these new talents, at 23 years old he finds himself in a new organization under his former manager once again. A successful debut here would put him in striking range of the top 15 and would be a loud statement that he is here to fight and win.

 

Fight 8 - Lightweight Division

1-1 IFC (7-5, 162 lbs) Vape Diaz  VS  1-0 IFC (4-2, 164 lbs) TopOf “The Prodigy” FoodChain

 

Once again we have a fight without a ranker in it as two fighters very new to the IFC go head to head in their efforts at grasping a top 15 position for themselves. If they weren’t in the lightweight division it is almost guaranteed that either one or both of these men would be in the power rankings. Diaz lost his IFC debut against Entei, but this is hardly cause for concern given the fact that Entei now finds himself in the #5 position in the lightweight division. Despite the rough start Diaz came back to beat Xavier and earn himself a spot in the main card in his fight this evening. Coming up against him is FoodChain who had a successful debut victory via submission a little over a month ago. A win here would be a huge statement as Diaz has already shown he can go head to head with the top 5 in the IFC, and FoodChain has taken on someone who was a borderline top 15 fighter already and won.

 

Co-Main Event - Middleweight Division

15-3 #5 IFC (15-3, 191 lbs) Mew Choo  VS  1-0 #2 IFC (10-2, 217 lbs) Arany “Nagy” Dali

 

For our co main event of the evening we make a jump from unranked to two top 5 fighters int he middleweight division. I feel like I’ve said just about all there is to say about Choo other than the fact he is coming off of an unsuccessful title challenge that ended in the first round. A win here would put him right back on track as Dali was a champion himself and with just one victory in the IFC has himself poised for another title shot. Dali’s only IFC victory was an impressive debut against the undefeated Fischer and has culminated in him instantly rising to fame and into the top 5 of the IFC overnight. A win over the super champ would have him as one of the most hyped fighters in the organization as well as put him in position to try for the IFC title.

 

Main Event - IFC Middleweight Championship Title Fight

9-0 IFC Champion (10-0, 204 lbs) Ispa Murhaa  VS  1-0 #1 IFC(23-3, 197 lbs) Luther “Touch Of Death” Jones 

 

What can top a fight between two top 5 fighters? Obviously the championship title fight, as Ispa Murhaa tries for his third successful title defense; this time against the IFC newcomer Luther Jones. At just 22 years old Murhaa’s story is amazing with 10 fights and 10 wins many are wondering if he can become the IFC’s greatest champion. However, standing in his way is Luther Jones was the island season 7’s middleweight champion. In a battle between one ex champion and a current champion who will come out on top? Guess you will have to buy a ticket and come find out!

IFC MW 35 Gellar vs Lomachenko

(August 8th, 2018 - King Theatre - Los Angeles)

 

 

IFC MW 35 looks to be one of the best nights the organization has had since I took over. The fact that a non title fight is more popular than the title fight itself speaks volumes about just how exciting this night will be. We begin our evening with a fight that although not featuring two of the best fighters, it has two fighters who are on an upswing. Sledgehammer has won all of his fights via knockout and has won 4 of his last 5 fights. His opponent Muller has now won three straight fights all via TKO. Both fighters love fighting on their feet so we can expect a great start to what promises to be an amazing night.
Following the first fight of the evening Mason tries to get another win, but standing in his way is Dalton who recently recovered form his three fight win streak by defeating Yonic in his last bout. Dalton is a very one dimensional fighter, but when he gets the fight to the ground he has the wrestling skills to maintain control on the ground which he has used to earn four decision victories so far in his career. However, if he loses control just once, Mason’s jiu jitsu could prove problematic for Dalton considering the fact 9 of his 10 victories came via submission.

Its only our third fight of the evening and we already have our first ranking fighter of the evening and a top 5 fighter at that. Entei the fifth ranked fighter is taking on the relative newcomer and 11th ranked fighter Hibbert. Entei is on a four fight winning streak and Hibbert is on a 6 fight win spree so somethings got to give. Both fighters are very well rounded, but Hibbert is the superior boxer while Entei is better in the clinch. Hibbert also has superior jiu jitsu, but it probaby isn’t cause for concern considering the fact he has had zero submission victories so far.

For the fourth fight of the evening Crosby tries to recover from his two straight losses in a fight against OQuinn who has been around in the IFC for quite some time now. Both of these fighters’ last wins came against DeVito who just retired recently. OQuinn has been very vocal about fighting Jackson and this match will serve as a warm up for the man he really wants to fight. However, anyone who has seen Crosby fight knows he is no pushover and OQuinn could just lose in warm up fight.

Now halfway through our night we have a fight between two black belts, one of which has stagnated lately and the other has been improving steadily. Despite his fall recently, Island is still one of the stronger fighters in the IFC especially on the ground which is where this fight will most assuredly take place. Sagaki has flown under the radar thus far in his career, but his ability on the ground is at the highest level and he could be a contender with a few more training sessions.

Next is one of the fights I’m most excited for this evening as Fischer tries to make his IFC return after switching managers after losing to Dali. Meeting him is Loureiro who has two straight submission of the night’s in his two fights since joining the IFC. Fischer was on a roll looking like he was the future champion, but after his stumble against Dali he decided to part ways with his manager and then took a short break from fighting. Loureiro only recently joined the IFC, but he has looked very strong in both of his fights, he has been a prime example of gi practice transferring into the octagon despite the difference in holds. 

Entering into the main card Impaler meets Coco in the octagon in what should prove to be a very evenly matched striking showdown. Impaler has been around in the IFC for a while and has been in the top 5 previously and has recently managed to climb his way back into the top 5, but a victory here could have him knocking on the door of a title challenge once again. Coco will be doing everything he can to try and move up in the rankings slightly.

As has been the case in just about every fight for this card we have two fighters on large winning streaks meeting up with only one man leaving with his streak alive. Megaton has fought only once in the IFC, but he still has not lost since leaving the island and this even includes two title fights in his previous organization. He wants nothing more than to get himself in position to take a new title, this time in the IFC. Standing in his way this evening is Terje Warholm who has been in the IFC his entire career, but has never had this much success and has even managed to climb his way into the 7th ranking within the division. Keeping this streak alive will be a challenge against Megaton, but he definitely has the skill to fight him.

For our co main event of the evening the IFC Heavyweight championship title belt is up for grabs. The champion no one expected Naiki Nekele tries to get his first successful title defense against Big Murha who is hoping to be successful in his second try fighting for it. Nekele shocked many people when he defeated Heavyweight with a majority decision and earned himself the belt. Now he gets a very real chance to prove himself worthy of the belt as he faces an opponent who has seen nothing, but success within the IFC.

For our main event of the evening Gellar tries to recover from his unsuccessful challenge for the title against Lomachenko who has been floating around the top rankings for quite some time now, but has never quite made it to the very top of the rankings. He looks to be the huge underdog in this one, but his current ranking is not one you can achieve without overturning expectations. Gellar has been at the top basically since joining, but has always played second fiddle to whoever had the belt.

Iron Man Fight Club - End of Week Review (26th August 2018)

 

A massive event this Saturday with an event rating second only to IFC 54. This was enough to push the IFC into 7th place globally though this isn't expected to last (and was never the goal in truth) as the Iron Man Vale Tudo 135lbs tournament is due to start soon and the smaller less hyped shows always put a little blip in the overall global rankings. 

 

At IFC 65 just gone, wily old Mew Choo managed to get back to winning ways in the Main Event with a superb submission victory over well hyped Luther Jones. It's possible that it was the final outing for Jones as word reached us after the event that he and his team are contemplating retirement. 

 

In the co-main event Super Heavyweight put young upstart Patrick Thompson firmly in his place with a first round KO victory at the 4:36 mark. Thompson had been surging up the rankings and had earned himself a chance amongst the big boys but clearly has work to do if he is to compete at that level. With the win Heavyweight moves up into 3rd in the heavyweight rankings surely isn't far from competing for his title once more. 

 

With these massive main event fights happening, the Middleweight championship fight was pushed down a little but that didn't stop undefeated phenom Ispa Murhaa putting on an superb display against un-fancied challenger Terry Bogard. Bogard certainly wasn't the favourite in this one but his five fight winning streak earned him a shot and he gave it his best but in the end was no match for the now 12-0 champion.

 

In what was likely to have served as a title eliminator in the Middleweight division, Arany Dali ended Terje Warholm's six fight streak with a TKO victory in the second round. It's like that Dali will now be offered the next shot at Ispa Murhaa's crown and an opportunity to become a two time champion in two different orgs. 

 

Going back to Wednesday now and IFC Mid Week 36, Damen Mayer, a three time champion of three different orgs made his IFC debut and he was welcomed by IFC veteran Evgeni Lomachenko. Mayer was expected to dazzle but it was Lomachenko who took the spotlight on this occasion with a first round TKO late on in the round. Could it be called an upset with Lomachenko recent form? Not really, but still, it was a big, big win for the Russian grappler and enough to put him back into the No.2 spot in the lightweight rankings. 

 

In the co-main event Heavyweights Doug Bell and Taz Bandichoo put on a solid display to entertain the crowd that ended in a three round decision win for Bell.

Iron Man Fight Club - End of Week Review (2nd September)

 

The IFC heavyweight title was on the line once more this weekend with Big Murha making his first title defence since picking the belt up for the second time during his time here. Facing off against Murha was Vladimir "The Horizontal" Impaler who had grinded his way into the number contender spot over the past year and was in great form coming into the bout on a four fight win streak. On the night however, Impaler was no match for the champion and Big Murha was able to get the job done in the first round by TKO at 4:23. 

 

In the co-main event, former Island stand out Grigori Rasputin went head to head with thirty year old Fanta Coco who has been doing well in the IFC since joining from the now defunct Hilo based org The Beatdown. It was an entertaining fight that went the full three rounds and in the end it was Coco getting his hand raised after getting the better of the stand up exchanges and showing off a well rounded striking repertoire. 

 

Lightweight contender Tony Hibbert picked up a big win over well hyped grappler Evgeni Lomachenko to move up into the no.2 ranked position on the same night as Nando Vasquez picked up his forth win in a row to move into the no.3 spot. This two fighters now look to be on an inevitable collision course to decide the number one contender for the lightweight title. 

 

Lastly, in the IFC Middleweight Division, former champion Light Heavyweight picked up his second win in a row and continued his march back up the rankings and now sits at No.3. He'll likely need another couple of wins before being handed a third shot at his old title but a champion such as himself should never be counted out

Thank you mate. Eric took over for a while and did a good job keeping the previews going for as long as he could but it really does take it out of you after a while. Especially when it doesn't seem like many people even read them. I'm glad you've enjoyed them though and hope you're having fun in the org!

Iron Man Fight Club - End of Week Review (9th September 2018)
 
Going back to Wednesday past at IFC MW 37, IFC newcomer Comeon Hitme made quite a debut in the org when he took out former IFC Middleweight champion Roman Divac with a stunning twenty-seven second guillotine submission in the first round. Divac had been in good form up to then and was riding a three fight win streak and looking as though he could make another push for a title shot so the lose will no doubt be hitting him hard. With the win Hitme enters at No.2 in the middleweight rankings and with another win could find himself thrust into title contendership
 
In the co-main event Miki Viki racked up his third win in a row in as many IFC fights since joining from the now folded Beatdown org of Hawaii and moved up from No.12 to No.7 at the expense of his opponent Dominique “Alligator” Bell who suffers his third loss in five fights
 
Other notable fights on the card saw long time IFC journeyman boxer Chara Zaad pick up his fourth win in a row and enter the middleweight rankings at No.12 for the first time in recent memory. Could this possibly turn into a serious title run for an extremely unlikely contender?
 
In the heavyweight division under-skilled striker Francisco “The Count” Babyara just cannot stop climbing the rankings lately and with notching up another first round KO on his resume, this time over Christophe Dupree, Babyara moves up into the No.7 rank and amongst the big boys. Whether he will be remain a long term fixture at the top of the Heavyweight rankings we will just have to see but for now, Babyara has arrived. 
 
Onto Saturday nights main event, the Lightweight title was on the line and defending champion Jax “Punch” Thomas made his third title defence against IFC Lightweight legend Klaus “The House” Chugman. As has become the norm for Thomas, he once again made it look easy and although the fight went into the fourth round he never truly looked in trouble and was able to nullify Chugman’s grappling ability and finish the fight by TKO. With the win Thomas has now run through all the top contenders and we look towards the upcoming contender match up between Tony Hibbert and Nando Vasquez to decide who will challenge Thomas next. 
 
In the co-main event former IFC lightweight champion Abdul “Fur Coat” Mumu piled on the misery for Damen Mayer who has now lost his last three in a row. A distressing turnaround for a fighter who has held a championship belt in three different fight orgs across the globe but a nice win for Mumu who moves back into the No.3 spot in the lightweight rankings. 
 
Another big climber in the rankings was Dennis Fischer who moves from No.14 to No.5 after a big head kick KO over Mike Megaton. Fischer looked to be a solid contender not so long ago before dropping off the radar a little. Can he carry this momentum further and make a challenge for the title this time?
 
Keeping with the Middleweight rankings, there was a good amount of new entries at the bottom of the Top 15 this week. Hallis Mollen moves to No.14 after a fight of the night performance against old IFC legend and former Open Weight champion Steven Kennedy, Yen Askren to No.15 with a solid decision victory over James Gregor and newcomer Zarko Zidane who is yet to make his debut after joining us from elsewhere.

Fighter in Focus
(12th September 2018)
 
“The Hunk” Jack Dawson (10-7, 175cm, 270lbs)
 
Jack Dawson started his MMA career with the Iron Man Fight Club all the way back at IFC 9 which puts his length of service at just over one year and one month. An impressive amount of time by any stretch. During that time Dawson has gone from an untested eighteen year old open-weight fighter to a twenty-three year old Heavyweight prospect. Today, we take a bit of a closer look at the fighter dubbed “The Hunk”
 
Dawson made his debut at IFC 9 on the 29th June 2017 in the IFC’s then Open Weight division. He made an immediate impact when he destroyed Japanese Thai Boxer Shigeru Miyamoto by Knee KO midway through the second round. That knee finish has begun to become something of a trademark now for Dawson and his record currently stands at four out of ten victories. 
 
He followed up that victory with another and looked like a solid prospect for the future. It was at that time however that the IFC announced the first of it’s tournaments and a new division dedicated to young prospects and as a fighter that met the criteria for this New Blood Division, Dawson threw his hat into the mix and moved into the tournament. 
 
Dawson easily navigated his way through the first round when he beat Oliver Kohler by first round TKO. This victory put him at 3-0 and all by KO finishes. Needless to say Dawson was starting to gain a lot of hype and much of this was due to his confident and vocal personality. This run came to an end in the next round however when he lost a gruelling but decisive decision loss to the eventual tournament winner. He went on to recover in his next fight an overall ended his time in the New Blood Division having gone 3-2 (5-2 overall) 
 
As Dawson turned twenty years old and now ineligible for the youngsters division, the IFC had just split it’s single Open Weight division into three and Dawson moved into the newly formed Heavyweight Division. 
 
“The Hunk” got off to a winning start when he once again punished his opponent with a crushing knee finish but, as one of the younger fighters in the 315k limit org, struggled against some of the bigger boys of the division and unfortunately suffered a four fight losing streak. 
 
With an unbreakable confidence however, Dawson would not be deterred and has recovered much of his former buzz and lately has been in great form racking up four wins in five. After his most recent fight, a beautiful Knee KO over Urban Go Bucks, finally arrives in the Power Rankings of the Heavyweight Division at No.13. 
 
At only twenty-three years of age there is still obviously plenty of room for Dawson to progress further and we will certainly be keeping an eye out to see just how far this young fighter can go in the division but for now we caught up with Dawson’s manager Raichu Kong to ask him a few questions about his fighter and how he sees the future for “The Hunk”
 
IFC: Jack Dawson just picked up his fourth victory by knee in 10 wins. That's an incredible amount considering how tricky they are to pull off. Are there some sort of special instructions you are passing onto Jack before his fights or has it just been luck of the draw so to speak?
 
Raichu: I tell him fake low with the punch go high with the knee that's there is to it really. 
 
IFC: Dawson just turned 23 and with his most recent win re-entered the IFC Heavyweight power rankings once more. How far do you realistically think Dawson could go? Do you think he could challenge for the Heavyweight title?
 
Raichu: that is tough as I also represent another heavyweight (android seventeen). I think he can make it to the top at some point but seventeen is a perennial powerhouse. 
 
IFC: Who has been Dawson's favourite opponent so far and is there anyone that he currently has his cross-hairs on? Be it someone ahead of him in the rankings or a previous loss on his record. 
 
Raichi: well I dont know about favorite opponent but he does have his eye on the champ (if he didnt he shouldn't be in this business
 
IFC: Finally, who do you think would in a fight, Dawson or Android Seventeen?
 
Raichu: mmm gonna me choose? Lol I think seventeen would as he is almost perfectly rounded in every aspect of the sport.
 
So there we have it folks. Stay tuned for future episodes of Fighter in Focus...

Iron Man Fight Club - End of Week Review (16th September 2018)
 
Two events once again this week and we'll get started with Wednesday's IFC Mid Week 38 show. 
 
Contesting the top of the Heavyweight rankings, Doug Bell eeked out a decision win over former champion Naiki Nakele in the main event to move up into the number 2 spot. 
 
In the co-main event, Terje Warholm got back to winning ways with a solid win over KO specialist Terry Bogard. The loss marked Bogard's second in a row after challenging for the title and the heavy hitter will no doubt be anxious not to fall out of the rankings completely after slumping to No.14 now. 
 
In a battle of BJJ Black Belts, IFC mainstay Daniel Sainty picked up the twelfth submission victory of his career over Dumba Diame Jr in the Lightweight division. It was a back and forth affair with both fighters managing take downs and submission attempts but in the end it was Sainty who picked up the win and keeps the pressure on Klaus Chugman for most submission victories in the org who is currently in the top spot with fourteen
 
Also in the Lightweight division twenty six year old Polish fighter Jan Jedrzejczyk picked up his second victory in a row over former New Blood tournament fighter One Fortytwo and enters in the power rankings for the first time at No.12
 
Moving onto Saturdays event and IFC 68, it was a big one for manager Ivan Drago as both of his well known fighters picked up victories and into their respective weights title pictures. 
 
In the Middleweight division, Light Heavyweight managed a split decision victory over Mew Choo in what was a rematch of their classic first encounter for newly formed Middleweight title. It was a very entertaining main event and both fighters gave everything on the feet but once again it was the clinch technique of Heavyweight that likely made the difference in the majority of the judges eyes. With the win, Heavyweight moves back up to the No.2 spot on a three fight winning streak and, depending on the result of the Hitme/Zidane fight this coming Wednesday, could find himself once again challenging for the title
 
In the Co-Main event we had a Heavyweight showdown of epic proportions. Super Heavyweight continues his quest to become three-time IFC Heavyweight champion but it wasn't without difficulty and a superb and gritty performance from Fanta Coco. Coco did an amazing job of neutralising Heavyweight's crushing clinch game and keeping the fight at a distance where he displayed an exceptionally well rounded striking repertoire but the heavy hammers of Super Heavyweight were out in force and though possibly being behind on the scorecard, Heavyweight was able to bludgeon Coco's face over the course of the fight and at 3:49 of Round 3, the doctor stepped in and despite Coco's protests, stopped the fight there due to a cut. 
An agonising loss for Coco in this superb title eliminator that won fight of the night honours that brought him so close to challenging for the title for the first time but it wasn't to be. Once again, the colossal figure in the IFC Heavyweight division, Super Heavyweight has earned the right to challenge for the title against Big Murha. 
 
In the Lightweight division, Jonathan Davis moves up into the Top 10 after a big win over newcomer Bobby Bianchi and has really flourished since being taking on by new management. It will be interesting to see just how far this former prospect can go from here. 
 
And lastly, in the Heavyweight division, young Finish fighter Mike Murhaa continues his impressive run of form since joining the IFC and finally takes his place in the power rankings at No.11. Murhaa is currently on a streak of six and will no doubt find more than a few keeping an eye on his development.
