Interview with Connor Mac Burns.

Q: Recent betting odds are out, you are a 22/1 underdog on some lines, & the event writer believes you will lose by KO. What are your thoughts..?

 

A:"Odds don't matter, me and my team know exactly who I am and what I am capable of doing. I'm older, I have been through more tough battles in my life then he ever has. I have better skills all around and he can't knock me out. I see myself winning, no doubt.."

Q: Cross is talking a lot of shit leading up to this fight..

 

A: "Talking does nothing. I'm an Irish man, who became a Canadian professional fighter, my boxing credentials speak for themselves and everyone will see my full skill-set and potential when this trash talking bitch steps into the fight with me."

SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIGHT NIGHT 1 PREVIEW

 

1447920857shousefight1.gif

 

 

UNDERCARD

 

Juan Manuel Miguel Angel Chavez Sanchez Doritos De La Cruz v Citrio Pavo – 155 lbs

 

Mexican boxer, Juan Manuel “taking hispanic naming customs to a whole new level” De La Cruz, prepares to take on US wrestler Citrio Pavo in this classic matchup. Both fighters are 18 and are in search of their first win; this will Pavo's first ever appearance in an MMA bout. De La Cruz is an exciting fighter to watch; he carries that Mexican style of boxing reminiscent of the likes of Chavez and Duran into the ring combining aggression with some delicious combination punching. However, he is currently 0-2 in his MMA career and will be keen to get that first win on his record following defeat against Lee Lewis in his last Slaughterhouse appearance. Less is known about Pavo, he has an impressive wrestling background but how that will translate into the world of mixed martial arts is another question. One point worth noting is that both of De La Cruz's previous losses have come against ground fighters, for all the entertainment that De La Cruz brings into the ring he might not find this one so entertaining unless he has made substantial improvements to his takedown defence.

 

Prediction: Pavo by first round KO.

 

The End v Vincenzo Stohr – 145 lbs

 

Two youngsters from Europe will face off in this featherweight bout. “The End” hails from the Flemish city of Genk in Belgium, he is a well rounded ground fighter who excels at takedowns and possesses a good chin which is just as well because his opponent for this matchup is a viscous stand up fighter. Italian Muay Thai specialist Vincenzo Stohr has a limited MMA record thus far, but in his one prior appearance he displayed a potent combination of power and accuracy; his strikes finding the target an astonishing 93.3% of the time and stopping the bout in under two minutes with a huge right hand that laid his unfortunate opponent out cold and in need of some serious medical attention. “The End” will be looking to take this fight to the floor, however I fear his approach might be too one dimensional for the Italian in this instance – the Belgian's gameplan revolves almost solely around takedowns and with that knowledge in mind Stohr can seek to work on the outside and frustrate his opponent with superior striking. Stohr will need to be careful not to get overly aggressive but with a cool head I see him taking this bout and delivering another spectacular finish via knockout.

 

Prediction: Stohr by first round KO.

 

Hon Mo v Jonathan Estrada – 135 lbs

 

Another international matchup for the cards as two new signings seek to begin their Slaughterhouse careers with a victory. Hon Mo is an Afghan mixed martial artist with a record of 3-2 and he will be eager to return to winning ways following an early exit in the Island. Philippine boxer, Jonathan Estrada, has an MMA record of 3-3 and is looking to make a name for himself in Vegas after an unsuccessful stint with Highland Challengers. Hon Mo shows an aptitude in both the standup and ground phases of mixed martial arts so it will be hard to predict how he chooses to approach this one, but if I had to wager a guess chances are he will try to take this one to the ground – he has shown an aptitude for submissions which seems to be his most likely route to victory. Estrada will play to his natural strengths and try to turn this into a boxing match; Estrada is an accurate puncher and has an average strike success rate of 69.7% however there are concerns that he lacks the knockout power to finish fights – all three of his victories have come via decision. That said Estrada has proven an extremely difficult opponent to take down – over the course of his six prior appearances he has stuffed an impressive 95.8% of takedown attempts and for that reason I like his chances here.

 

Prediction: Estrada by decision.

 

Alex Lesnar v James Darmody – 135 lbs

 

Burmese fighter James Darmody takes on the young Botswanan wrestler Alex Lesnar in another matchup between two adversaries making their Slaughterhouse debut. Despite being six years the younger, Lesnar actually has more experience in the ring having notched up a 9-10 record over the course of his career thus far. 25 year old Darmody has a record of 6-4 and is a standup fighter first and foremost, although rumour has it he is a decent wrestler as well. It's worth noting that Darmody possesses a massive fifteen inch height advantage over his opponent which will stand him in good stead if this fight remains standing. Expect Lesnar to look for the takedown in order to nullify that advantage and play to his natural strengths. Interestingly this is not the first time these two opponents have met, a previous QFC outing ended after three rounds with Lesnar eventually securing victory via arm triangle. Darmody clearly had the best of Lesnar while the fight remained standing and was leading on the scorecards before the African managed to turn the tables. With that in mind, what adjustments will the fighters make for this bout? Hard one to call, but Lesnar will come into this one as a slight favourite due to the outcome of that previous fight.

 

Prediction: Lesnar by second round submission.

 

Bimbo Dynamite v George Miller – 135 lbs

 

Another fight between two opponents who will already be familiar with each other. Dynamite is a wrestler with a granite chin while hometown hero Miller is a ground fighter who has shown great aptitude for submissions. Both are 25 and both will be making their first appearance under the Slaughterhouse banner. The previous fight between these two ended with Miller taking the win with a guillotine submission; this was Dynamite's first ever MMA appearance so be hoping that the learning experience will stand him in good stead for this fight. Miller will undoubtedly look to apply the same gameplan in this instance, the question for this fight is more what adjustments will Dynamite make? His boxing has improved since the last time out so he may try to keep this standing or seek to make a point in taking the fight to the ground. At this point it's impossible to predict, realistically this fight could go any way but I have a feeling that Dynamite might actually take this one. Access to superior gym facilities and the knowledge of what to expect from Miller might just swing this in Dynamite's favour. In this instance Miller's more extensive MMA record might actually count against him, the Las Vegas fighter has had to take more time off to recover from fights and Dynamite's team will be hopeful that the extra time in training will give them the edge to win this rematch.

 

Prediction: Dynamite by second round KO.

 

Mac Gruber v Dagur Egilsson – 145 lbs

 

Icelandic mixed martial artist Dagur Egilsson faces American boxer Mac Gruber in this featherweight matchup. Egilsson is well rounded but prefers to keep the fight on its feet where he shows effective use of kicks to the legs and body to wear his opponents down. Gruber is primarily a boxer but has shown great aptitude in Jiu Jitsu, using his grappling skills to transition to dominant positions where he can work the ground and pound. Both fighters are new signings and will be keen to make their mark in what should be an interesting stylistic matchup. Egilsson will be returning to MMA after a brief foray into the world of kickboxing while Gruber is coming off the back of two losses and will be looking to break that streak here. It's hard to predict who has the edge here, both fighters appear to be relatively evenly matched in both standup and grappling albeit with completely different styles. Egilsson will probably prefer to stay standing and could use his superior Muay Thai to inflict some serious damage on Gruber from within the clinch – an area which the American has struggled with before in the past. Gruber could approach this fight in any number of ways, by trying to outbox his opponent or taking his chances on the ground in search of a submission. In picking a winner for this fight, I'm going to go with the more experienced European – he has faced tougher opposition in the past and should show greater ability to adapt as things unfold in this unpredictable fight.

 

Prediction: Egilsson by decision.

 

Saiyan Southbrook v Holt McCoy – 205 lbs

 

Two talented fighters looking to return to winning ways in the light heavyweight division. Saiyan Southbrook is 23 years of age and full of promise, he suffered a knockout in his last Slaughterhouse appearance but received numerous plaudits for the aggressive approach he adopted against former champion Stew Sauced. Fellow American Holt McCoy is 30 and coming off the back of a defeat against accomplished standup fighter Sungwon Jung. Southbrook's Slaughterhouse record thus far is 1-1 while McCoy is 2-1 – both are eager to notch up another win in this deeply stacked division. The gameplan of both fighters should be fairly predictable – Southbrook is a versatile outside fighter and will be looking to keep this one standing, McCoy is a skilled wrestler and a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and will look for takedowns and, should the opportunity present itself, submission attempts. The outcome of this bout will rest on where this fight takes place – Southbrook will look for a repeat of Holt's last match where he barely had a chance to secure the takedown, however with this comes a major caveat... As entertaining as Southbrook is to watch, an overly aggressive approach here could enable McCoy to close the distance and take the fight to the floor. Southbrook has yet to face a grappler of McCoy's caliber under current management, but I quite like his chances here – he has shown good takedown defence in the past and if he makes the necessary adjustments to his fight strategy he has a good opportunity to be celebrating his fifth career victory come the end of the night.

 

Prediction: Southbrook by second round KO.

 

Hunter Akbar v Maddox Rayborn – 185 lbs

 

36 year old Hunter Akbar takes on 21 year old Maddox Rayborn in this battle of youth vs. experience. Akbar is a multi-faceted mixed martial artist who specialises in submissions, he has a long and illustrious record having registered twenty four victories over the course of his career and numerous titles in multiple organisations. However, at the age of 36 there is speculation that he might be on the decline – he suffered defeat in his last Slaughterhouse outing against Parker Phoenix, losing by unanimous decision with all judges scoring the contest 27-30. He did manage to take the fight to the ground but got stood up by the referee several times for lack of activity; fans are hoping that the experienced Nigerian will step things up for this bout and put on a more entertaining show. Rayborn is an inside fighter who loves to take his opponents into the clinch, he has a limited MMA record so far having only made three appearances – two wins and a loss, all via KO. Having looked at the tape of Akbar's last fight, chances are the young American will look for a standup battle where Akbar appeared to be thoroughly outclassed. However, Rayborn isn't on the same talent level as Phoenix and his lack of experience in Jiu Jitsu could spell trouble for him if the Nigerian does secure the takedown. This is a very difficult one to call, but with Akbar low on confidence following his last defeat I'd wager Rayborn might just be able to win this one with the sheer knockout power of that brutal right hand.

 

Prediction: Rayborn by second round KO.

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

Monster Hero v Michael D Amato – 265 lbs

 

Our co-main event of the evening sees versatile heavyweight “Monster Hero” take on talented boxer Michael D Amato in what should be an intriguing matchup. Amato surprised us in his last outing with a thoroughly dominant performance over Bruce Hardman, a bout which appeared to be very close on paper. However, he faces one his toughest opponents yet in the form of Monster Hero. Monster is a highly accurate striker who shows a great understanding for all aspects of the game; his striking success rate is an astonishing 78.4% which is extremely impressive at this level. Monster is a recent signing from REVO and is looking to build on his 15-8 record following a three fight win streak. He is arguably one of the hottest prospects in this division and could find himself in contention for a title challenge if he keeps he can continue to string together wins. But Amato will also be angling for a shot at the title following his impressive performance against Hardman, another highly ranked fighter; a victory for either opponent here would definitely put them in the spotlight so expect both fighters to step it up in their search for glory.

 

In terms of gameplan, Amato will almost certainly look to outbox his opponent – he primarily likes to target the head in search for knockout blows although he will occasionally mix it up with leg kicks and hooks to the body. With the Monster, it's difficult to predict how he will approach this one – he is versatile on his feet, mixing in boxing with all manner of kicks, and he will also try to take the fight into the clinch or onto the floor if he feels that is where he has the edge. In this instance a takedown strategy is a distinct possibility and may be Monster's best approach for this particular opponent. I'm really struggling to pick a winner for this matchup, on paper Monster looks like the more dangerous opponent but Amato has surprised us before and, when you get two heavyweight opponents of this caliber in the cage, really anything could happen.

 

Prediction: Hero by third round KO.

 

MAIN EVENT

Roger Machado v Otocanin Zmija – 265+ lbs Title Fight

 

And finally, our main event of the evening is the inaugural Super Heavyweight Title Fight between two very evenly matched opponents. Both of these fighters are Brazilian Jiu Jitsu specialists and of their 22 combined wins, all bar one have come by submission. These two fighters have met twice before during their days with the now defunct org Solitude. The record currently stands at one a piece with Machado winning the first fight by armbar in the third round and Zmija taking the rematch by decision. This will be the first time these two have fought in a title fight however and if this fight goes through to the championship rounds (a very distinct possibility given how well versed these two are in Jiu Jitsu) it could well be the case that the contender with the better cardio will emerge victorious.

 

Overall Zmija is the more active fighter, he is an accurate striker with an underrated right hand but his real strength comes from mixing in ground and pound with his Jiu Jitsu. Machado prefers to react to situations as they unfold, he doesn't offer much threat standing up and will actively be seeking to counter with takedowns as soon as the chance presents itself. On the ground Machado is more passive than Zmija, preferring to focus on improving position and eventually looking for submission attempts rather than grind his opponent down. It's an interesting strategy which could work in his favour if Zmija gasses out early, but should the fight go the distance it will put him at a distinct disadvantage on the scoring cards. The expectation is that the majority of this fight will take place on the ground; ultimately this will be a test of cardio and concentration and a momentary lapse of focus could well spell trouble for either fighter.

 

Prediction: Zmija by decision.

Slaughterhouse FC

Based: Las Vegas

Owner: J.J. Tycooner

 

 

 

 

One organisation which might not have been heard of by quite a few people within the MMA Tycoon world is one which is based in Las Vegas, owned by MMA Tycoon manager J.J. Tycooner, it is an organisation called Slaughterhouse FC. When Slaughterhouse FC opened it's doors back in August 2015, it didn't take long for them to establish themselves as one of the most promising new organisations in the MMA Tycoon world, I didn't know this myself but after 4 events Slaughterhouse FC broke into the top 20 rankings for all the organisations in the MMA Tycoon world. As it currently stands, they're still ranked 20th at the time of writing this and they show no sign of dropping down the rankings any time soon despite only having a total of 11 events to date, a great achievement for such a young organisation.

 

 

So what's the secret to the success behind Slaughterhouse FC? Well, the man who can answer exactly that is J. J. Tycooner himself, however good luck finding that out as I couldn't convince him to share his secrets on how he managed it. The only other people who could possibly know what he knows is his trusty co-owners in Devin Skrumbellos and Ryne Woodsmall, both who are said to be heavily involved with ensuring that Slaughterhouse FC maintains itself as a top 20 organisation in the MMA Tycoon world. In addition to having two other co-owners, J.J. Tycooner has also made the wise decision of hiring a very talented writer in Donald Canmore to do previews for his events, something which I personally always enjoy reading when I've signed a fighter to an organisation.

 

 

What I can tell you instead is a bit more about the organisation, starting with the divisions and what (if any) restrictions they have on the fighters entering these divisions.

 

  1. Bantamweight (135lbs) division - 270k ID and above 
  2. Featherweight (145lbs) division - 270k ID and above
  3. Lightweight (155lbs) division - 270k ID and above
  4. Welterweight (170lbs) division - Open ID
  5. Middleweight (185lbs) division - Open ID
  6. Light-Heavyweight (205lbs) division - Open ID
  7. Heavyweight (265lbs) division - Open ID
  8. Super Heavyweight (265+) division - 270k ID, 25 years old and above. Perfect for any of you ex-Island fighters!

 

From what you can see here, there's clearly a mixture of both new and upcoming talent in the ID restricted divisions but also some more established, experienced veteran fighters in the open ID divisions. Essentially Slaughterhouse FC has the best of both worlds and it'll be interesting to see if they can continue to recruit exciting talent in the open ID divisions while their young fighters continue to develop into potential MMA stars in the ID restriction divisions. Not every division has a champion yet and so there's still time for you to sign your fighters to one of the divisions which don't have a title holder and become a part of this rising MMA organisation's history. Listed below are the current champions.

 

  1. Slaughterhouse FC Welterweight Champion - Sweet Jones (7-3)
  2. Slaughterhouse FC Middleweight Champion - Parker Phoenix (11-3-1)
  3. Slaughterhouse FC Light-Heavyweight Champion - Kuma Nelson (32-11)
  4. Slaughterhouse FC Heavyweight Champion - Magnus Cross (24-10)

 

Two new champions will be crowned in the very near future. At Slaughterhouse 8 the Lightweight title is on the line in a fight between Tank Radovan (2-1) and Lee Lewis (2-1), an exciting bout where we'll see one guy who's comfortable with his stand up landing the KO strikes (Radovan), and the other guy who is comfortable ripping guys limbs off to get submission wins (Lewis). In the Super Heavyweight division, we have a title fight at Slaughterhouse Fight Night 1 between two ex-Island season 4 fighters, both are renown for their impressive ground game with only 1 victory out of their combined 22 victories not coming via submission: Roger Machado (12-3) vs  Otocanin Zmija (10-3).

 

 

Both Parker Phoenix (11-3-1) and Kuma Nelson (32-11) are due to defend their retrospective titles at Slaughterhouse 9. Parker is going against an experienced veteran in Kenneth Wayne (28-9-1) in a fight which is not to be missed. Kenneth brings a wealth of experience with him into this fight having competed at both Syn and EVO, he could be seen as a great signing for Slaughterhouse FC to really boost their fan base. Kuma on the other hand is set to compete in his third bout with Stew Sauced (10-9), the former Light Heavyweight champion who was also the very first Light Heavyweight champion for Slaughterhouse FC. This fight is a real make or break for Stew, as a defeat here will surely see him be forced to either switch weight division or change organisation as it would seem he's simply not good enough to beat Kuma once more if a 4th fight occured.

 

 

Before I finish this write up off, I can't finish it without mentioning Slaughterhouse FC's biggest star. "The Time Machine" Tommy Grunge (25-0-1). This fighter started his career off as a KT fighter in the Welterweight division. After winning the Welterweight title at the best KT organisation in the world EFFA, Tommy went on to sign for the now defunct Dynasty K-1: Tokyo and crushed their entire Middleweight KT division, after he was bored dominating the Middleweight division he bulked up again, this time to Light Heavyweight and cleaned out the Light Heavyweight division back at EFFA before switching to another K1 organisation in NACF where he fought once as a Heavyweight fighter. Tommy didn't feel the HW division was his best division for him and so dropped down to Light Heavyweight after he retired from KT with an unblemished 20-0 record and started his professional MMA career. He is considered by many, and rightfully so, the greatest KT fighter to ever grace MMA Tycoon. The story doesn't end there though, as he signed to make his debut MMA fight in EVO, the biggest MMA organisation in the world and went undefeated in 3 Light Heavyweight bouts there and in 2 Middleweight bouts. Before leaving EVO, Tommy also had a 1 fight deal to fight in another elite MMA organisation, this time EVO's rival Syn, where he took on and beat one of their better Light Heavyweights.

 

13988993452553.png

 

Slaughterhouse FC's biggest star Tommy Grunge

 

 

What's amazing is that despite dominating at the elite MMA organisations throughout the world J.J. Tycooner convinced one of the best and most dangerous fighter on the planet at this time to signed with Slaughterhouse FC. If J.J. Tycooner continues to convince elite fighters like Tommy Grunge to sign for his organisation, it wont be long before his young organisation finds itself ranked amongst the top 10 organisations in the world. I can see in the near future, there'll be fighters coming to take on Tommy Grunge to prove they're better than him and if J.J. Tycooner has signed him down to a long term deal, that means those elite fighters who want to fight Tommy could end up signing for Slaughterhouse FC as well.

 

 

What J.J. Tycooner has done so far has been nothing short of remarkable and I wish him good luck and all the best for the future, not that he'll need anyway. If there's an award going for New Organisation of the Year for 2015, without a doubt in my mind Mr Tycooner's Slaughterhouse FC deserves it.

Sorry for this taking longer than usual, this was not the easiest review to write (if you've read through some of the PBPs you'll understand why :P) so if it's not quite up to my usual standard my apologies:

 

SLAUGHTERHOUSE 7 REVIEW

 

1446905990ui.png

 

UNDERCARD

 

Ryan Genningsunit v Dominick Snooze – 135 lbs

 

This was a slightly bizarre fight with most of action taking place in the clinch. Genningsunit's plan seemed to revolve around persistent use of elbow strikes (98 attempts over the course of the fight), however the vast majority of them either missed their target or were blocked. Meanwhile Snooze seemed content to stay in the clinch despite being clearly outworked and outscored in that department. With most of his takedown attempts stuffed, Snooze may well have been better off sticking to the outside where he looked the more dangerous of the two. Similarly Genningsunit might have been able to finish this fight earlier if he had worked in more body shots from within the clinch; he had a 100% success rate when he targeted the body with punches. With neither fighter showing a particular willingness to adapt their gameplan this one went to decision with Genningsunit clearly taking all rounds on the judges scorecards.

 

Result: Genningsunit by decision.

 

Dawid Dzingis Han v Joe Johnson – 265+ lbs

 

For those of you not familiar with Dawid Han, this man is a skilled wrestler with a penchant for finishing fights via submission. Unless you are a particularly skilled ground fighter, you probably don't want to be taking him to the ground. Yet that is precisely what Joe Johnson did in his MMA debut, shooting for the takedown less than fifteen seconds into the bout. Somehow he managed to avoid getting submitted in the first, but when Johnson took the fight to the ground yet again it seemed to be only a matter of time before the Polish wrestler would be able to apply the finish. And sure enough just over a minute into the second round Han managed to secure the armbar and Johnson was tapping out in pain. Han will no doubt be absolutely delighted that this matchup played right into his hands as he celebrates his fifth successive victory.

 

Result: Han by second round submission.

 

David McFadden v Walter Black – 185 lbs

 

Credit to McFadden for at least attempting to make this bout entertaining. For reasons unbeknownst, Black decided he would spend the majority of this fight lying on top his opponent and proceed to do nothing from dominant positions. Presumably he was having an existential crisis and was contemplating the meaning of existence or other such esoteric matters because as far as fights go this was a snooze fest. Admittedly things picked up in the third round as McFadden managed to stuff three successive takedowns and connected with some nice hooks, however sure enough Black eventually took the young Scotsman to the floor yet again at around the two minute mark. With Black showing a distinct lack of activity on the ground this one went to the score card and the American took the decision with all three judges scoring the contest 29-28 in Black's favour. We sincerely hope that Black's manager will be having words with him lest we see a repeat of this performance (if you can call it that).

 

Result: Black by decision.

 

Billy Bulge v Neil Murray – 205 lbs

 

Neil Murray showed his versatility and surprised onlookers by taking this fight to ground early on in the first; after landing with a well-timed uppercut he launched a double leg takedown into Bulge's guard. From there he successfully avoided several attempts from Bulge at a guillotine submission and controlled the position eventually moving to mount and attempting an arm triangle of his own. The second round started in much the same way with Murray punishing Bulge's bid to try and take the fight into the clinch with another nice uppercut which landed flush. Again, Murray immediately followed up with the takedown and managed to advance into mount as Bulge tried to secure a kimura. However, this time the Ulster man sprang back to his feet perhaps concerned at Bulge's persistent attempts to go for the submissions. This looked like it might backfire as the American then succeeded in a takedown attempt of his own and proceeded to rain down some nasty blows on Murray. But just as the round looked to be swinging in Bulge's favour, Murray showed some effective Jiu Jitsu and escaped to his feet. By the third round both fighters seemed to have tired somewhat and the pace of the action slowed; Bulge looked like he had secured the takedown but this time Murray immediately escaped back to his feet and took the fight back down to the ground on his terms. With neither fighter able to secure the submission we went to the judges scorecards and Murray secured the victory with a unanimous decision thanks to a dominant grappling performance throughout.

 

Result: Murray by decision.

 

Cappy Christian v Jared Tillion – 170 lbs

 

This bout went more or less as expected with Christian looking to operate inside the clinch and Tillion doing his best to bring the fight to the ground. Christian managed to get the Norwegian up against the cage early and rocked him with a series of knees and elbows; Tillion's endeavours to take the Muay-Thai practitioner down proved unsuccessful and soon he looked clearly winded from the damage being inflicted by Christian. A knee to the body dropped Tillion to the floor and although he managed to regain his footing Tillion soon found himself back in the clinch. A cut opened up above the Norwegian's right eye and soon Christian was targeting the laceration with elbow strikes. Tillion eventually did manage to obtain the takedown but Christian immediately sprang back to his feet and resumed his onslaught. With blood now streaming down Tillion's face the doctor was eventually forced to bring this fight to halt leaving the winner by TKO, Cappy Christian. The 37 year old Australian is clearly still at the top of his game and if he continues to perform like this it will only be a matter of time before he gets another shot at the welterweight title.

 

Result: Christian by first round (T)KO (doctor stoppage).

 

Harley Crowe v Howard Stern – 185 lbs

 

Well exactly as predicted this Jiu Jitsu battle went down to a decision. Both of these fighters are well versed at defending against submissions and of the thirty eight combined attempts throughout neither opponent was able to make the other tap. Stern connected well with his kicking but with most of the contest taking place on the ground the decision went to Crowe who was the more active fighter throughout. Stern did well to secure several reversals to take the third round, but with all three judges scoring the bout 29-28 the result was probably a fair reflection of proceedings. Crowe was able to secure the takedown throughout and although Stern managed to connect with some strikes of his own it was Crowe who had the more effective ground and pound. Despite being unable to secure the submission, the newcomer will no doubt be delighted with his debut performance as he looks to move on up in the middleweight division.

 

Result: Crowe by decision.

 

Kezz The Convict v Sweet Jones – 170 lbs title fight

 

At Kezz's last title defence he looked exposed in the clinch despite managing to snatch a victory with a late submission in the fourth round; Jones decided to follow the exact same blueprint here, repeatedly forcing Kezz up against the cage at the start of every round. The strategy worked to perfection with Jones controlling the action and successfully landing with a series punches from inside the clinch. Most of Kezz's attempts to pull guard proved unsuccessful; he managed to take the fight to the ground towards the end of the first but was unable to secure the submission and for the rest of the bout the fighters remained standing. With Kezz's takedowns attempts (41 over the duration) stuffed, Jones clearly dominated the action and when the final bell rang it was no surprise to see all three judges score the contest 50-43 in Jones' favour with rounds two and four being scored 10-8. The new welterweight champion was delighted to pick up his first belt and thanked the fans profusely before catching his flight back to London; his next bout is currently unconfirmed but there will no doubt be some tough competition coming up in this top heavy division.

 

Result: Jones by decision.

 

Peyton Rudger v Eli Frankham – 265+ lbs

 

What had been billed as a close battle turned into swift exercise in brutality; Rudger immediately countered a missed leg kick from Frankham by taking him into the clinch. On paper these two are very evenly matched in this department, however it was the sheer level of aggression showed by Rudger which swung this one in his favour. With effective elbow strikes mixed in with some well timed hooks, Rudger had soon opened up a cut on Frankham's forehead. With Rudger delivering strikes with precision the doctor was eventually forced to call this fight to a halt as Frankham's cut progressively worsened over the course of the first round. Fans will no doubt be disappointed with the early stoppage but in all fairness Frankham showed little ability to cover up from the American's onslaught. A win on his Slaughterhouse debut now puts Rudger in good contention to start moving towards a challenge for the title; Frankham was one of the higher rated fighters in the division and this performance here will have some of the bigger names looking over their shoulders in concern.

 

Result: Rudger by first round (T)KO (doctor stoppage).

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

Andriy Kuzmenko v Reijo Rento – 265 lbs

 

Stylistically this was always going to be an intriguing matchup; as predicted Kuzmenko looked to keep this standing while Rento was happy to trade blows but was also actively looking for takedowns. On this occasion Kuzmenko showed excellent takedown defence and was able to fight this bout on his terms. Both fighters connected well with their strikes but it was the Ukrainian who edged the standup battle landing 54.7% of his shots to Rento's 48.3%. With both opponents' striking on point it seemed to be only a matter of time before a KO was forthcoming, and sure enough one minute into the second round Kuzmenko delivered a massive right hand which put Rento to the canvas, the Finn managed to get back on his feet but Kuzmenko followed up with a big uppercut which put Rento back onto the mat. Rento did his best to cover up but a hail of strikes from the Ukranian soon forced the referee to bring this bout to a halt. This is a big victory for Kuzmenko in his first appearance back after losing his title bid against Magnus Cross; Rento is a reputable opponent at the top of his game and this win will no doubt be a great morale boost for the Ukranian as he seeks to work his way back into title contention. Rento will be disappointed to suffer defeat on his Slaughterhouse debut but the experienced heavyweight will no doubt be back as he looks to establish himself in the division.

 

Result: Kuzmenko by second round (T)KO.

 

MAIN EVENT

Magnus Cross v Connor Mac Burns – 265 lbs title fight

 

This title fight started out with a cracking display of boxing with both fighters showing some excellent footwork and head movement to avoid the wild shots that were being thrown. We talked about the possibility of Burns playing away from his natural tendencies and testing Cross on the ground prior to the bout and sure enough at just past the minute mark Burns feinted and suddenly dived in for the takedown. With the champion now on the floor, Burns started to look for submission opportunities but Cross showed some good defensive grappling to prevent the challenger from controlling the position and eventually the referee was forced to stand the two fighters back up. More wild strikes ensued, most missing their target but both fighters managing to connect on occasion. As we approached the four minute mark Burns managed to take the fight to the floor twice in quick succession; the first time Cross quickly escaped but on the second occasion Burns secured the double leg takedown and transitioned into side control. However, Burns was unable to secure the submission due to the bell and we went into the second round. Again, both fighters came out swinging wildly – Burns connected with a few shots but it was a monster right hand from Cross which finally swung this bout in the champions' favour. Burns dropped to his knees and soon Cross was in his guard loading up on shots looking to finish the fight. A desperate Burns tried to find the guillotine but the champion avoided it easily and continued to rain down some vicious strikes on the challenger. Soon Burns had resorted to just covering up and the referee had to step in, calling this bout to a halt.

 

A much closer fight than many had anticipated. Burns' takedown strategy at times looked like it might pay dividends but ultimately the champion showed his versatility in avoiding submissions and was effective in limiting the amount of damage Burns was able to inflict on the ground. At the age of 23 it may be the case that the best is yet to come from Cross, but yet again he showed us why he remains dominant at the top of the heavyweight division. This is Cross' ninth victory in a row and his third successive title defence – quite the accomplishment for one so young. If he continues his winning ways we may well be seeing a legend in the making.

 

Result: Cross by second round (T)KO.

SLAUGHTERHOUSE 8 PREVIEW

 

1448218720slaughterhouse%208.png

 

UNDERCARD

 

Craig David v Verne Robinson – 205 lbs

 

Our first fight of the night is between two light heavyweights from England; Craig David is a Manchester lad while Verne Robinson hails from the southern city of Southampton so there will be some friendly geographical rivalry between the two. Robinson is 28 and is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt with an MMA record of 4-3; he has a solid record of securing single and double leg takedowns and is a skilled grappler having being a former division three finalist at the Tycoon World Grappling Championships. His opponent is Craig David, an experienced veteran and a mixed martial artist, equally adept at all phases of the game – he possesses a record of 29-33. However, there is one key thing to note – David is 48 and, judging by his current loss streak, is well past his best. This will be a good learning experience for Robinson but there is no doubt in my mind that he will be coming into this bout as a heavy favourite; I expect the difference in physical fitness will show itself fairly quickly and that Robinson will be able to end the fight via submission sooner or later.

 

Prediction: Robinson by second round submission.

 

Luan Oliveira v Fenton Hilton – 155 lbs

 

Brazilian Luan Oliveira takes on American Fenton Hilton in this battle of the new world. Both are aged 25 and both are looking for their first Slaughterhouse win; Oliveira suffered defeat in his debut against Tank Radovan while Hilton is a new signing. On paper this would look like a wrestler vs. jiu jitsu matchup, however there is key distinction between these two fighters – unlike Oliveira, Hilton possesses a solid standup game with his two prior wins coming from knockout. Rather than wrestle with the Brazilian, I suspect Hilton will look to use his boxing here both to score points and, potentially, to find the KO. Oliveira's best chance to win this bout is undoubtedly through a submission victory; Hilton allowing the heavier Brazilian to take this fight to the ground would only play into his opponents hands and as such he will need to make adjustments to his usual gameplan to prevent opportunities for the counter takedown. I would give Hilton the edge in this matchup due to that added dimension of his striking, but if Oliveira does manage to take the American down the threat of submission will be ever present.

 

Prediction: Hilton by second round KO.

 

Markus Woodsmall v Karistokas Thereduuo – 135 lbs

 

Markus Woodsmall is a wrestler from St. Louis, Missouri; Karistokas Thereduuo is a brown belt in Jiu Jitsu and hails from Greece. They will both be making their Slaughterhouse debut in this bantamweight matchup. Woodsmall likes to work out of the clinch and will be looking to keep the Greek up against the fence for the duration of the bout. However, he has shown vulnerability on the ground having being submitted by the much younger Domagoj Glavas in his third MMA appearance and will presumably be actively trying to avoid grappling with Thereduuo who is even more skilled in submissions. Thereduuo gameplan is simple: take Woodsmall to the ground and finish him. But executing this plan may not be quite so simple... the American has excellent takedown defence, with an astonishing ratio of 92.9% of takedowns stuffed over his five previous appearances. Thereduuo is undeniably accomplished in the art of submitting opponents (with three of his past four wins coming in this manner) however if he can't take Woodsmall down this will present a significant problem for him. I think this matchup will be decided on Woodsmall's ability to keep this fight standing and for this reason I would put the American as a slight favourite for this one based on prior performances.

 

Prediction: Woodsmall by second round KO.

 

Tank Radovan v Lee Lewis – 155 lbs Title Fight

 

Our inaugural lightweight title fight will be between an all American matchup as local Vegas boy Tank Radovan takes on Texan Lee Lewis. This will be the third time these two opponents have met with the record currently one a piece. While this will be the first title appearance for both fighters I doubt this one will go into the championship rounds; Lewis won the first fight with a second round submission while Radovan took the rematch with a knockout just four minutes into the bout. Both of these contenders are capable of finishing the fight early and that is surely the expectation here. Radovan is primarily a wrestler but made significant adjustments to win the second matchup between these two and I suspect he will follow suit here and do his utmost to keep the fight standing. It will be interesting to see what improvements Lewis has made since then; he was unable to take Radovan down the last time so this will be a key area in this title fight. Lewis can't afford to allow Radovan to dominate the standup exchanges again so he may adopt a more aggressive strategy to try and force him to the ground. If he proves successful Radovan could well find himself in trouble, however I fancy Radovan to offer a repeat performance of the last fight in this instance – he has both a solid gameplan and (as we have already seen) the ability to execute it.

 

Prediction: Radovan by first round KO.

 

Igor Zadarozhni v Raziel Shan – 265+ lbs

 

Two wrestlers make their debut in this super heavyweight matchup. Belarusian Igor Zadarozhni comes into this bout with an MMA record of 5-6 and will be seeking to improve on that here as he takes on Raziel Shan; the American holds a record of 6-3 but is coming off a two fight losing streak so he is equally as eager to get a win in the books here. Both of these fighters thrive on grinding their opponents down on the floor; with the exception of one decision victory a piece, all of these fighters win have come via KO delivered by ground and pound. Neither of these opponents show much in the way of standup ability so unless one of them has been making substantial improvements in that area I fully expect this bout to be decided on the ground. That said, both fighters tend to be fairly active with their strikes from top positions so this should at least be an entertaining fight for a grappler vs. grappler matchup. Shan will come into this bout as a slight favourite: he possesses a significant size advantage with 10 inches on Zadarozhni in height and perhaps even more significantly a substantial 33 lbs weight advantage which could prove crucial in determining the ground battle.

 

Prediction: Shan by decision.

 

Mashrafe Mortaza v Jimi Aldo – 145 lbs

 

Two new signings from the Island come to meet in this featherweight bout. Mashrafe Mortaza has previously fought in Highland Challengers and is looking to build on his 6-4 record as he takes his game to the next level; Jimi Aldo is 4-5 following a stint with Solitude and will be seeking to improve on that record as he embarks on the next stage of his career. This will be Mortaza's first fight at 145 lbs having previously fought as a lightweight so it will be interesting to see if the change in weight class has any impact here. This is a difficult matchup to call, both of these fighters are skilled in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but both have been submitted on occasion as well. Aldo has shown vulnerability in his standup game but given this is not a particular strength for Mortaza that may not matter here. I strongly suspect this fight will go down to the ground and be determined by whichever fighter has the stronger Jiu Jitsu; very hard to call but if I had to make a prediction Mortaza perhaps has the edge based on his stronger record.

 

Prediction: Mortaza by second round submission.

 

Kuula Natsi v Adam Morley – 265 lbs

 

Finnish veteran and BJJ black belt Kuula Natsi takes on Canadian wrestler Adam Morley in this heavyweight contest. Natsi is an experienced grappler having fought with numerous organisations including IMA, MMA Helsinki, Infinity and UMMA to name but a few; he is 39 but is still capable of competing at a high level having recorded three victories earlier in the year. Morley is 25 and comes into Slaughterhouse following stints with Death Squad MMA, the South America Fight Corp. and ECFC. Both of these competitors tend to win their fights on the ground; Natsi is an accomplished submission artist while most of Morley's victories have come from ground and pound. That said neither of these fighters are one dimensional: Morley has a solid standup game while Natsi's boxing needs to be respected – it's conceivable that one of them may tone back on the takedown attempts and try to score points (or perhaps even a knockout) with their striking given these two are relatively evenly matched on the mat. In terms of size difference there is little between the two; both come into this fight at just under 6'3 although Morley does possess a slight weight advantage. Very tough fight to call and this one could easily go either way.

 

Prediction: Morley by decision.

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

Johann Kessler v Franklin Jackson – 170 lbs

 

Our co-main event of the evening sees two extremely versatile fighters from either side of the atlantic face off as they seek to make inroads into the welterweight division. Franklin Jackson hails from Bakersfield and comes into this bout on a four fight winning streak. In his last Slaughterhouse appearance he won a fight of the night bonus for his sensational stoppage of Papy Abedi – he was rocked early in the first round after a left right from Abedi stunned the American and put him to the floor. A dazed Jackson managed to survive through the first round and delivered a spectacular overhand right to put Abedi out cold just seconds into the start of the next round. We hope to see an equally entertaining fight here.

 

Kessler is an equally dangerous fighter who excels at slowing opponents down with leg kicks. The Danish mixed martial artist shows a particular penchant for knocking out opponents and the suspicion is that is precisely what he will try to do here by loading up on shots and getting in Jackson's face. However, both of these fighters have very respectable records of 11-2 – finding the finish is not going to be easy for either opponent. This bout may well be decided by stoppage but chances are it won't come early; Kessler and Jackson both possess knockout power but show equally impressive striking defence so maintaining concentration will be crucial. I would give Kessler the edge when it comes to standup and working in the clinch, but if the fight goes to the ground the advantage may well swing in Jackson's favour. The outcome of this fight is anyone's guess, although I'll put this down as a victory for the Dane I certainly wouldn't bet the house on it.

 

Prediction: Kessler by second round KO.

 

MAIN EVENT

RP McMurphy v Imperiex Prime – 265 lbs

 

The main event of the evening sees two extremely talented warriors meet in this heavyweight matchup. These two are amongst the biggest names in the division so a victory here would greatly strengthen the case for a title challenge. “Machine Gun” RP McMurphy is a Canadian boxer/wrestler who has shown excellent ability to take opponents down and grind out TKOs on the floor. He comes into this bout following a big victory over Decker Dogwood at Slaughterhouse 6 and will be looking to continue his winning ways here. The Canadian has made substantial improvements to his striking defence in recent months and at the age of 29 is reaching the peak of his game. He is a former TTFC title holder and will be extremely eager to impress here and earn his right to mount a challenge for the heavyweight belt.

 

His opponent is one Imperiex Prime, a Greek standup fighter who possesses exceptional knockout power. To illustrate this, all of his victories have come via KO in the first round and all bar one have ended in the first two minutes. Arguably, Prime possesses one of the best right hands in the business – the number of bouts he has been in which have ended by early stoppage is nothing short of astonishing. If there was a record for fights finished in under twenty seconds this man would surely be in contention if not a clear frontrunner. McMurphy's plan will be to take the Greek to the floor, no question about it. While McMurphy has also shown knockout power in the past, I really wouldn't rate his chances in a standup battle between these two particularly highly. Prime has shown vulnerability on the ground in the past so McMurphy is in with a decent shout, but I'm not going to bet against a KO machine of Prime's caliber in this instance. Every second the fight remains standing spells danger for the Canadian and, for all the improvements he has made in dodging and blocking strikes, all it takes is one big punch to connect and that could be all she wrote. Regardless of what happens this should be a thoroughly entertaining fight between two very active fighters.

 

Prediction: Prime by first round KO.

Haud yer wheesht.

 

I had three articles to do this week due to the extra event, and it's not like I can just bang them out in an hour - each article is 2000+ words and on top of that every matchup gets scouted thoroughly. I will always guarantee the preview will come out before the event, but on the weeks where we are holding multiple events it won't always be several days in advance.
