RFN 8: Sar vs Owinashi II

Preview 

 

Hello guys! After a long hiatus i'm back with RFN's preview show, and this time we'll take a closer look at RFN 8, which goes down this Friday!

 

MAIN EVENT

HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT

 

Saloth "Pol Pot" Sar (8-2) vs Robert "Japan Eagle" Owinashi (6-2)

 

Sar is attempting to climb back the heavyweight division rankings after two failed title fights, and his first step was a first-round TKO over Tim Edwards at RFN 6. Now, he looks to beat Owinashi once again to move closer to top of the heap. Despite the obvious motivation of avenging his previous loss, Owinashi also comes 

in backed up by the confidence of a 3-fight winning streak. Will his attrition clinch game be able to stifle Sar's kick-heavy offense this time around? Sar is still looking to rebuild after another heartbreaking title bid, while Owinashi finds himself in the best moment of his career. The "Japan Eagle" settles the score, picking up a decision win or a late TKO.

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Gareth Wilcox (9-4) vs Jarik "The K Master" Belson (5-0)

 

After a rough start in the RFN, Gareth Wilcox has managed to carve himself a nice 3-fight winning streak, culminating in an spectacular head kick knockout over previous nemesis Ethan Lurch in their RFN 5 title bout. Now, he looks to make his first title defense against young Swede export Jarik Belson, who comes in with an unblemished 5-0 record. The fans better watch out, as this one has the potential to be a barnburner, given both fighters fondness for throwing heavy leather. Wilcox, however, throws it with a bit more polish, and his overall experience will prove too much for Belson to overcome, unless he puts his outstanding wrestling skills to offensive use. Wilcox gets the early KO/TKO to retain his belt. 

 

MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT

 

Thiago Silva (11-4) vs Coaker "The Fastball" Kluge (3-2, 1 NC)

 

Island veteran Thiago Silva looks for his first "real world" win after a disappointing RFN debut that saw him choked out by Kyle Waters. The Brazilian now meets an almost mirror image of himself in Coaker Kluge - a fighter who likes to keep the fight standing and sling power punches looking for the knockout. While both men pack enough power to put a rhyno to sleep, Silva's smoother technique and superior experience tilt the scales in his favor. He takes it by KO in the 2nd round.

 

 

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT

 

Jace "The Eraser" Beleren (4-1) vs Mikaiah "Boomstick" Rynn (5-2) 

 

Another battle of fighters with similar styles take place, this time in the light heavyweight division, as former champ Jace Beleren and Mikaiah Rynn look to get back on the winning column at the expense of each other. There's not a lot to say about this match up other than both men are boxers with decent clinch games who like to beat the hell out of people. This bout will be fun for as long as it lasts - which doesn't mean it will last long. Beleren's superior boxing will be the great equalizer, and he takes home the win via TKO late in the opening round.

 

 

UNDECARD PREVIEW

 

 

Georges "Marcus" Lameson (5-4) vs Dag "The Viking" Kreuger (3-3): Lameson is a dangerous jiu jitsu player, but not much else. Kreuger is a wrestle-boxer with not a lot of power, but he will probably be able to tag Lameson enough times to pick up a TKO win in the third round.

 

Kazunori "Kaz" Kouya (5-3) vs Paul Frederick (3-4): Kouya brings an interesting medley of pure muay thai and clinch takedowns, which he will need to use in order to neutralize Frederick's solid jab and superior grappling acumen. Kouya kicks and clinches his way to a decision win. 

 

Marco "The Fist" Hammer (5-6) vs Stefan "Snake" Silva (5-5): Here we have a fight between two fighters whose specialty is the ground n' pound. Scoring the first takedown will be pivotal and Silva is slightly better at doing that. Provided he can keep his chin tucked and his hands high, he should be able to get his game going and pick up a TKO win. 

 

Sousuke "Mexico" Kamida (4-4) vs Delone "Betta Recognize" Braune (3-6): Delone is a stylistic nightmare for Kamida, as his wrestling should be enough to nulify Sousuke's venomous jiu jitsu game. Braune punches Kamida out to pick up a much needed win. 

 

Jon "Bones" Jones (3-4) vs Nick Stewart (3-4): Both men are really even in the wrestling department and that's what will ultimately be the deciding factor in this bout, as Stewart is the superior grappler while Jones holds the edge in striking. I flipped my coin and it says Jones will take it by TKO.

 

Danny "Arm Collector" Daze (4-3) vs John "The Bone Breaker" Smith (3-5): Grappling fans should be excited, as the "Arm Collector" and "The Bone Breaker" will probably tangle on the ground looking to tap, snap or nap the other man. Daze is a brown belt, so he's the heavy favorite. He takes it by first round armbar.

CO-MAIN EVENT

WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Gareth Wilcox (9-4) vs Jarik "The K Master" Belson (5-0)

 

Wilcox gets the early KO/TKO to retain his belt.

Boom! New champ. Well... it was more like a sub fest. I unleashed Belson and let him fight the way he wanted to... and I guess he really really really wanted a sub victory.

 

 

 

MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT

 

Thiago Silva (11-4) vs Coaker "The Fastball" Kluge (3-2, 1 NC)

 

Silva's smoother technique and superior experience tilt the scales in his favor. He takes it by KO in the 2nd round.

Sorry, but it didn't get that far. Kluge has been training with Tank Abbott. Fear him.

 

 

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT

 

Jace "The Eraser" Beleren (4-1) vs Mikaiah "Boomstick" Rynn (5-2) 

 

Beleren's superior boxing will be the great equalizer, and he takes home the win via TKO late in the opening round.

You were right on this one. I think my mistake was trying to win in the clinch. I should've kept it standing up. Rynn took too many shots to his head in the clinch.

RFN 9: Lurch vs Joaquin

Preview 

 

What's up, RFN fans? It's that time again where i  try to give you an overall view of our beloved organization's upcoming card. This time, we're taking a closer look at RFN 9, a card filled with potentially good fights. On to the face punching!

 

MAIN EVENT

WELTERWEIGHT BOUT

 

Ethan "Haris" Lurch  (8-2) vs Rocky "Kid Dinamita" Joaquin (7-6)

 

Former 2-time welterweight kingpin Ethan Lurch looks to get back on track against Rocky Joaquin, who's 2-0 since signing with Rio Fight Nights. Lurch is a well-rounded guy, but his main strenght relies in his grappling. He does an excellent job of moving in behind accurate punch combos, setting up both takedowns and clinches. Joaquin,  a solid grappler in his own right, has obtained all but one of his wins by submission. Unfortunately, he doesn't bring much else to the table, and that's why i feel Lurch is going to tee off on him standing and pick up a TKO win.

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

WELTERWEIGHT BOUT

 

Dennis Pegeant (6-4) vs Brian "Sexual" Chocholate (6-6)

 

Two agressive grapplers collide in the co-main event, as BJJ brown belt Dennis Pegeant locks horns with solid wrestler Brian Chocolate. Pegeant couldn't ask for a better matchup as Chocolate is probably willing to engage in a ground battle with him. While both men obtained the vast majority of their wins by submission, Pegeant's pedigree is certainly superior, but "Sexual" has a decent shot if he can get top position and pass guard. Or we could end up having a sloppy kickboxing match, who knows? Nah, Pageant by submission.

 

MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT

 

William "Father" Johnson (5-0) vs Larry "The Leech" Ludwig (2-3, 1 NC)

 

Johnson looks to keep his undefeated record intact as he do battle with Ludwig, who's fresh off of his first RFN win. The 26-year-old Johnson relies on his solid wrestling and atlheticism to grind away decision wins, while Leech, a BJJ brown belt, has only gone the distance once in his career. Johnson must be wary of Ludwig's guard but i really think "Father" plays it safe, producing just enough offense from top position to get the decision win.

 

 

LIGHTWEIGHT BOUT

 

Paulo "Panther" Mendosa (2-1) vs Nikolai Nation (2-0) 

 

The main card opener is a lightweight contest between RFN debutant Mendosa and undefeated prospect Nation. A brown belt in BJJ with above average wrestling, Mendosa has obtained both of his wins by submission. Like most especialists, however, the other areas of his game are lacking, and that could cost him against Nation, who relies on a stout wrestling base to keep the fight vertical and land lots of punches. I mean it, he lands A LOT. While he doesn't have the power to pull your plug, the damage really adds up, and i think Mendosa is in for a long night, as Nation batters him on the feet and picks up a decision win.

 

 

UNDECARD PREVIEW

 

 

Ty Daves (6-4) vs Yan Yang (6-7): I really think Daves will succeed in neutralizing Yang's dangerous hands and get the fight in the clinch, where he will work him over with knees and punches en route to a second-round stoppage.

 

Damian "Polish Pitbull" Grabowski (5-7-1) vs Paco Angel Marquez (4-4): Both men are basically boxers, but Marquez will enjoy a decent reach advantage. That, along with his superior punching power and sturdier beard, is more than enough to pick him as the favorite. He takes it by KO. 

 

Ramazam Abdulkerimov (7-9) vs Vittu "Bahinguru" Baska (2-4): Both men are kinda low on confidence and in desperate need of a win. Abdulkerimov has the wrestling chops to take Baska down and hold him there, and i think that's exactly what he's going to do. He takes it by late submission.

 

Keisuke "Trickster" Takasugi (1-1) vs "The Celtic Potato" Bullock James (2-3): Classic striker vs grappler match here, James being the striker and Takasugi being the grappler. As always, wrestling will be the deciding factor in this type of matchup. Takasugi is the superior wrestler, so i'm siding with him. Submission, round one.

 

Tom "Iceman" Rodriguez (3-4) vs Ronaldo "Abacaxi" Oliveira (3-6): Both men are BJJ purple belts with no striking or wrestling to write home about, so they'll probably engage in some fun scrambles at some point. This one is really a toss up. I'm going with Oliveira, because last name. 

 

"The Grim Reaper" Jack Long (4-6) vs Robson "Pustelnik" Cruzo (1-4): Cruzo, a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none, is not looking to hot right now, riding a 4-fight losing streak. Long probably has the tools to beat him, and get himself out of his own 4-fight losing streak. Long by submission.

Reporter: "Mr Steel, will it be possible to get a word with Arturo, he looked incredible again tonight."

Steel "look, he is only 19, there will be plenty of time, right now I want to keep him grounded and out of the public eye."

Reporter "he was ranked the top 16 year old on the planet when he won the title and has been the top fighter for his age since then, just how far can he go?"

Steel " right now Arturo is the hottest prospect in the world, he has it all, chin, massive power, and the skills to go with it, the new Scotty Bennett?, maybe , the new Tonal?, well time will tell. It's an honour to have him in the camp. He has a great future, Jonny Cannuck and Rod know he is special and it's great working with them. Thanks and good night."
