Syn’302 – Review

Coming to you live on PPV from the LA Memorial Colossuseum (capacity 93,607) on Saturday 31st May

As we look forward to when Synchronicity will bring you their three-hundred and second weekly show live on PPV, we take a closer look at the fighters and match-ups that fill the card as 20 fighters in 10 top, world class fights give it their all to become the best. Another stacked card with 2 title fights is unlikely to disappoint so we’ll start there.

 

Lightweight Title Fight

*Champion* Michael "Nuts of Wonder" Patton (46-15-1) vs Derek "The Artist" Riggs (29-17-0)

Pound for Pound Patton is considered the number 7 best fighter in the world, in his own weight class you’re now wondering? He’s the number one in the world! His opposition on paper may not be quiet as formidable but Riggs was on a current four streak win run and on Saturday he was looking to make it five. The Champion may have gone in the favourite but “The Artist” is just that, a true technique artist in his striking and was no written off what so ever by the fans!

 

The fight was of true main event quality and both me proved why they were headlining a card with such formidable fighters filling it from top to bottom. It was 5 rounds of pure class from both me, exchanging strikes, holds and takedowns. At various points within the fight both men could’ve been made to tap by the other but it was not to be that day and they went the full distance. When 25 minutes isn’t enough to separate two top class athletes it hardly seems fair it comes down to the opinion of three people sat around the cage watching in but that’s how a winner had to be decided.

 

It was announced to the electric audience (and the two fighters) that after 25 minutes, 5 rounds, that – by Split Decision – their Champion of the Lightweight division was…… still Michael “Nuts of Wonder” Patton! Scoring of the three judge’s puts an exclamation point on just how close a contest this fight was, with 47:48, 48:47, and 48:47. This fight isn’t just one of the fights of the night; it was truly one of the fights of the year and is worth catching on the replay. We can only hope as fans we get to see a re-match of this great fight as these two men really went to war.

 

Welterweight Fight for the Belt

Yang Tao (30-10) vs Sergiy Sklyar (32-8-1) *Champion*

Coming into this one, Sergiy Skylar’s only loss had been a title fight against Buzz Cloltran at Syn’278 but he won the belt back a mere 2 fights later and currently boasts a 7-1 record during his time here at Synchronicity. His opponent Tao is on a current 3 fight win streak beating very formidable opposition during those fights in the forms of, Ben Stone, Motanna and Shawn Kronburger. This fight was always going to be a hard fought classic no matter the result but on Saturday night, these two truly delivered.

 

Just like the main event this one went the full distance and holds a very similar story. After three rounds this fight seemed like it was being edged by Skylar, the champion digging in and performing as expected but knowing he was losing on the score cards after three only inspired and motivated Tao. Tao pulled out one of the best round performances in the fourth round as he gave Skylar very little space and dominated the stand-up. Going into the last round it was all tied and just a matter of who could take it. Would Tao be walking away the new Welterweight champion or would Skylar make his record one win richer.

 

The final round was the closest of the lot, with both fighters giving their absolute all trying to put away the other or at least lead on the scorecards, trading shot after shot and really putting on a show for the Syn fans. As the bell rang, you could smell the anticipation in the air, as both men got ready to celebrate their name being called and all judges had agreed one their scoring, leaving the announcer to tell the world that their NEW Welterweight champion of the world was Yang Tao by Unanimous Decision (48:47)! Post-fight Tao was clearly emotions but made a heartfelt thankyou to all of his fans for their support.

 

Syn’299 Rematch

Apollo Jackson (17-3-1) vs Evgeniy Malkin (17-6-2)

The rematch the world had been waiting for, after their previous battle had gone the full 15-minutes allocated to the three round bout and at that point the judges couldn’t even separate them, the , was awarded as a draw. This was something neither man was content with and while the respect was clear, it was also obvious they wanted to go a few for rounds so they could have a decisive winner.

 

And the first round picked straight up where the last fight had left off, with both men equal to a point where the fans were chanting their names and nobody envied the jobs of the judges having to give an official scoring. And while the fight remained close, that was the last near unseperateable round these two men would contest, as Malkin began to take an edge in the second and controlled the third successfully despite Jackson fighting throughout till the end. Almost fittingly the winner of this – in effect – 6 round war, came down to the three men around cage side and they awarded Malkin with the Unanimous Decision victory. A clearly disappointed Jackson and a nearly speechless Malkin showed great respect post-fight for one another and it’d be hard not too after the war these two had engaged in over these two Pay-Per-Views. These three top fights on the card were worth the ticket price alone for the fans and all 6 men involved really did Synchronicity proud on Saturday night.

 

The Main Card

Dragon Slayer (20-7-1) vs Damon "Pretzel" Pierce (32-18)

Slayer vs Pierce saw something, that in no other fight, a total of 31 other rounds worth of fighting, we saw all night. A fight that not only saw a finish but didn’t get out of the first round! Slayer battered Pierce with some solid striking that saw him finish “Pretzel” in under three minutes, gaining a TKO victory when Slayer landed a big uppercut that left Pierce on his knee’s against the cage and needing the referee to jump in and stop the strikes from Slayer raining down. When the finish came the crowd went ballistic after having watched six other fights all go to a decision, the delight from seeing a fight finished was clear. When the announcement was made it was met by a standing ovation from the 90,000+ packing the collosuseum.

 

A J Hearts (28-9) vs Zoran Miloshevich (27-14)

A solid bout 3 round bout between 2 of Synchronicity’s more quiet fighters, who may not have gotten off to the best start in the respective careers but have both been great to watch in the cage. They did not disappoint as they used every minute of every round to try and sway the judges points in their favour but from the moment Hearts cut open the head of Miloshevich it looked like their could only really be one winner. A J  Hearts performed superbly and just edged out each round in his favour after heavily controlling the first to take a deserved Unanimous Decision (30:27) victory. A lot of people will be hoping to see big things from a more confident – yet very respectful – AJ Hearts.

 

"God's Worker" Jonah Sumrall (18-6) vs Alfonso Lopez (16-5)

Not a fight that was likely to set the world on fire and it turned out exactly how most expected, a three round fight with little in the way of persuasion that one man would threaten to finish the other. The closest chance to a finish the fans saw was when Lopez (who controlled most the fight) got knocked down by a good headkick from Sumrall and “Gods Worker” tried to close on the finish but was denied by the resilience of Lopez. Lopez went on to win all three rounds – deservedly so in the eyes of most – by unanimous decision (27:30). Looks like God turned his back on his worker on this one.

 

Undercard

Sergei "El Fenómeno” Kharitonov (19-8-0) v J “Face” Breaker (48-29-1)

Complete domination is the only adjective applicable to Sergei Kharitonov’s performance against J Breaker – who was barely able to get into the fight. Kharitonov took a unanimous decision victory (30:26) over Breaker, as he controlled the fight and obliterated his seemingly burnt out opponent in the final round winning it 10:8 on every judges score card. With a fight like that, it does make you wonder just what "El Fenómeno” is capable of and how successful can he be here in Synchronicity.

 

Mr Bronze (25-15-0) v Kaoklai Khanomtom (30-11-3)

Evenly matched this fight definitely was, as these two fighters couldn’t be separated from 15 minutes of fighting in the same way they couldn’t be separated during the build up to the fight. The action was slow paced and slightly disappointing compared to other fights on the card but had moments that shone like any other. With 15 seconds left Khanomtom knew he was losing the fight and needed to do something about it, which resulted in him nearly putting Bronze out (after Bronze had controlled for 2 rounds straight) but Bronze held on to claim a unanimous decision (29:28) to take victory here in Colesssueum.

 

Makao Matsumoto (23-16-1) v “Captain” Tsubasa J Champ (19-8)

This fight may have ultimately gone on to be decided by decision after it reached the third round but J Champ will be wondering how he was not being announced winner after a mere 15 seconds, in which he cut, knocked down and seemingly had beat an extremely resilient Makao Matsumoto. Matsumoto would go on to control the rest of the fight after recovering himself from the early onslaught in the 1st-2nr round break and eventually take the victory by Unanimous Decision (29:28) but it was the “Captain” J Champ who will feel victory should’ve been his and will be disappointed with his performance following his early dominance.

 

Thor Berserk (20-10) v Charles “The Hammer” Martel (46-15-0)

The opening fight of the card saw the veteran Martel take his first win (by majority decision) since losing his title shot fight against Jake Lamotta in Featherweight division. Thor Berserk provided solid opposition and took it right down to the wire. Just how closely this fight was contested is shown in the judges’ score card as the judges all gave different scorings from 29:29, 28:29, 27:30, in favour of “The Hammer”. Such a vast scoring range from our judges raises the point again of the scoring system in place currently in MMA but that is a debate for another day.

 

Synchronicity delivered true value for money tonight with no less than 9 fights going the full distance to a decision, which made the KO of the night award (awarded by Reaper Combatwear) a simple decision in giving it to Slayer. The other fights – for the most part – more than delivered in terms of entertainment and quality of fight, in particular the main-events were real highlights and completely lived up to their billing. As an overall this show really went down well with fans, officials and fighters across the globe alike and was awarded a 997.40 rating from the MMA Tycoon governing body, along with selling over 325k of PPV buys. A fantastic night for not only Synchronicity, but also MMA Tycoon as Syn’302 really delivered as expected and possibly even more.

Syn' 303: Contenders – Preview

Live on PPV and at the LA Memorial Colossuseum (capacity: 93,607), LA, California

There may not be any title fights on this Synchronicity card but with the quality and calibre of fighters involved you don’t really need one as Synchronicity offers you 10 quality match-ups to get your mouth watering and Championship Press Association shall cover each one in this report sponsored by Championship Clothing.

 

Christian Nolan (23-19) vs Gigant "Big" Silva (22-13)

These two men may seem to be a rare bread after the last Syn Pay-Per-View (Syn’302) – in which 9 bouts went to a decision – as they both like to look for a finish no matter the opponent. Nolan has taken 19 finishes, only winning 6 fights by decision, while Silva is very similar and looks to finish his opponent on the ground or feet with 17 finishes, 12 (T)KO’s and 5 Submissions. In their last 8 fights combined, only once has a fight needed the judges’ scorecards and that speaks volumes at this level of competition about the mind set of these competitors.

 

The other thing these two men share in common is firstly an ambition to one day go on to challenge the Heavyweight champion – currently Brick Tires – but also that neither one can maintain a winning streak long enough to impress the match-makers and management of Synchronicity. While neither man has been in poor form, it’s just been a big case of win one lose one for both of these men and they will both be hoping to make a win Saturday night, against the other, part of something bigger. Silva goes into this one as a big underdog and will need all of his determination and heart to get through and make a name for himself, while Nolan will be looking to finish on his feet and out strike the grappler Silva.

 

"Gambler" Bad Idea (27-12-1) vs "mēpisukaryā" Itagaki Fukuzawa (17-4-0)

When you talk about two fighters who style and game plan going into most fights is polar opposite, you have to talk about what is likely to be of this match-up between the Georgian Idea and Japan’s Fukuzawa. “Gambler” is just that, a risk taker, who has seen 26 of his fights go to a decision, often fighting for a decision once a fight reaches the 3rd (or 5th during his glory days of being UPG champion). On the other hand you have Fukuzawa who looks to finish where possible, and finish he does in style. Taking 14 wins by (T)KO he is a real powerhouse and take his opponents head off, in his last fight, with Chauncy Silvestre, he finished the fight with a mere 15 seconds left on the clock to the uproar of the Synchronicity fans.

 

Itagaki Fukuzawa does not like leaving a fight in the hands of anybody but himself and that makes him very dangerous to any opponent, and possibly even more so to one like Bad Idea, who likes to control a fight. Idea has the advantage on the ground and may look to capitalize there and take control while holding his opponent but with Fukuzawa in the cage anything could happen if the fight is left standing. The fans are excited to see this one and if Fukuzawa can make it three straight undefeated since his arrival here in Syn!

 

Daniel "Ravishing" Roth (24-11-2) vs "Thor" Eiji Kawashima (31-8)

Making his second appearance follow his title fight on his debut in Syn is the “Ravishing” Roth, who will be looking to impress and make a name after a successful stint in – the now defuct – BFE (Brazilian Fight Entertainment). “Thor” on the other hand makes his debut tonight and will look to prove he should be in contention for freshly won title of Yang Tao. Whoever is gunning for the belt that takes a win off this fight may have to go through former champion Sergiy Skylar though as he’ll want to be next in line with a rematch for a belt he feels he should never have lost.

 

There aren’t many fighters more well-rounded out their than Eiji Kawashima but if anybody can stop this man that dominated UPGV at 170lbs, it is the arrogant yet so very charismatic and entertaining, Daniel Roth. Hopefully this fight will be as interesting and as entertaining as Roth’s entrances to the cage but that remains to be seen. One thing to mention is that Roth is the only man out the two to take a submission victory and “Thor” has only ever lost by submission, so could that be the finish we’ll see Saturday night?

 

"MR. NAUGHTY BOY" Mickey McFinnigan (21-11) vs Charles "Grenade" Gunn (25-14-1)

Another cross Atlantic war between a Brit, Mickey McFinnigan, and a yank, Charles Gunn. Despite coming from very different places these men are incredibly similar, they’ll both be making their debut in Syn this Saturday, they both have fought at the top level in other top orgs already and both men love to put on a show, collecting 20 “Of The Night” awards between them (McFinnigan with 11, Gunn with 9). These men also love to finish and this is what the fans will be hoping to see Saturday night. One question is over the ground game of Gunn, who is renowned for not having a very strong BJJ training regime but with that being said, he’s never been forced to tap but that could be more down to the fact he’s almost never been taken down. If McFinnigan was able to take Gunn down though, could this spell a world of pain and a first submission loss for the “Grenade”? The fans will hope not as they want to see these two great KO artists slog it out and go to war, for national (and personal) pride.

 

Roderick "The Hammer" Jenkins (14-5) vs Jobe Nkemakolam (35-14)

Jamaican Roderick Jenkins will be looking to continue his successful start to life in Synchronicity with a win over a Syn veteran in Jobe Nkemakolam. Nkemaklam will be competing in his 11th fight for the company and respect from “The Hammer” will be clear for a man who needs no nickname but the respect better not play on the mind of Jenkins to long in the cage as Jobe will take full advantage if it does. Both of these guys are on notable win streaks (more because of the level of competition than the amount) with each man looking for their 4th and 3rd respective victory on Saturday night but that’ll be easier said than done and one of these impressive streaks will have to come to an end when they meet in the cage.

 

"The Justice" Mitch Heisenberg (35-13-1) vs Hamid Zaferani (27-17-2)

A bout featuring a cardio machine and an explosive animal is what the fans of Syn will be treated too on PPV when “The Justice” Mitch Heisenberg meets Hamid Zaferani at Syn’303. Heisenberg comes into this one off the back of a loss to one of the best in the world in Matt Miller in a title fight for the featherweight title and will be looking to show his name should be around the discussion for that title sometime soon again after his jump from EVO. Zaferani was Sergiy Skylar’s last opponent at 145lbs before he made the jump to 170lbs after Zaferani went the distance with Skylar but was just edged out. This fight is an interesting one as Zaferani holds the edge on his feet but Heisenberg will benefit from the fight going to the ground. The only thing to bear in mind is that “The Justice” has won 21 of 25 decisions his fights have gone to, while Zaferani tends to fade away and has lost more decisions than he has won. Will the cardio of “The Justice” play a factor, Zaferani will certainly look to not allow it too!

 

"Mjöllnir" Njord Freyr (25-11-0) vs "The Hulk" Autumn Hunter (24-9-1)

Njord Freyr is a former top 10 p4p fighter in the world who once went on a 10 fight win streak, unfortunately for Freyr those days seems to be behind him now but he still possess a real threat to Autumn Hunter. Hunter is not quite as reputable globally as his opponent but definitely brings a lot to the table as the Syn favourite will look to really bring his A game when he faces his Norwegian born opponent. It is expected this fight will end in a bang with both men loving to finish the fight by (T)KO, between them they have gathered a staggering 39 (T)KO wins,  which will leave the fans begging to see this become the 40th as these two heavyweights face off and look to move forward in their aging careers.

 

Buddy "The Faustus" Guy (26-5) vs Mark Sutter (22-16)

Compared to the last Syn card (Syn’302) we here at Championship Press Association really fancy the chances of a few finishes in Saturday night’s fights and this one should be one of them. Only 13 fights that these two guys have had out of a combined total of 67 have made it to the judges score card. One thing we may potentially see from Mark Sutter that we don’t see to regularly is a submission finish as he holds such a strong advantage if the fight goes to the ground, it may not be his natural habitat BUT Guy works on keeping the fight standing, not getting it back there, so it may be his best opportunity to grab a win. The fans will want an exciting fight and that’s one thing I will happily predict we should see in this one.

 

"The Flash" Barry Allen (21-11) vs Keke "Hammer" Pummel (23-12)

Even at 30 years of age “The Flash” Barry Allen still believes he is not only a great MMA fighter but also the quickest MMA fighter on the planet. He’ll be hoping to finish Pummel in a “Flash” before Keke can build on his momentum from his previous fight – his debut against Indica Jatlier – where he controlled the fight and took a great win. Both these men come off the back of victories into this one, with Allen also coming in having taken strong victory against Holden James. This is an evenly matched fight where either man could take the spoils but Allen is debatably the more popular fight and may have the added factor in his corner of 90,000 shouting fans.

 

Rico "El Chupacabra" Dominguez (24-12-3) vs Chauncey "Nightcrow" Silvestre (31-17-1)

If any fight on this card is likely to go the full three rounds and still be entertaining, with a shot at fight of the night, it’s this one. It’s El Chupacabra vs Nightcrow in a clash of featherweight cardio-kings, with both men coming in off the back of losses making this a real make or break fight. Silvestre’s career could’ve been so different if he could’ve just beaten one man, the beast known as Matt Miller. If Silvestre had taken any one of three opportunities to beat Miller he could be one of the biggest stars in the company but now he’s on the back foot facing a man who has never had the opportunity that “Nightcrow” did but Dominguez will be looking to show he does in the future.

 

Synchronicity 303 – Contenders will look to bring you something different from the last Pay-Per-View from the company, as the 9 out of 10 fights that ended in decisions on the last card is highly unlikely to be repeated on this one, with a lot more aggressive guys on this card, who will look to finish on every opportunity. Reaper Combatwear will be sponsoring the event as always and will be providing all clothing and merchandise for the event as well as sponsoring the “Of The Night” awards for the evening which will be very hotly contested!

FV #22 – XXX – Preview

Live at the MMA Grand (Capacity 17,157) on Saturday 7th June

Forbidden Violence brings you two title matches and eight other top class match-ups this Saturday as it presents FV 22 – XXX live. Several of FV’s top contenders will be in action along with the two champions at Lightweight and Light Heavyweight as Johann Joensen and Jamalski Ramirezovic defend their respective titles against two hungry challengers.

 

Main Event

Lobsta "HIGH TILL I DIE" Mang (25-11-0) vs Arvydas Sabonis (24-11-0)

It is not often we here at Championship Press Association cover an event and feel that putting two debutants in the main event is fair or the right thing to do but in this case we 100% agree with the match-making and the decision of Frank King to make it the main event of FV #22. When two competitors – such as the ones featured in this bout – come into the company with this stature and reputation we fully support it and know the fans will be getting their full money’s worth.

 

Mang comes into the organisation as one of the most versatile fighters it has signed having picked up a total of 25 victories with 14 by (T)KO, 3 by Submission and the rest by Decision. He has competed in a variety of organisations but had his most successful run in Cage Wars Hilo during his first run with the company, where he picked up a huge total of 8 straight victories.

 

Arvydas Sabonis comes into Forbidden Violence as one of the biggest signings the company has made (along with the recent acquisition of the Ali Baba Mohammed) since its beginning and comes to FV after a sensational spell in GAMMA. During his time there, Sabonis picked up three straight victories against top opposition but left the company, after losing his well-earned title shot, due to the speculation around the GAMMA and its ownership. He’ll be looking to pick up where he left off before that title shot and dominate during his time with Forbidden Violence.

 

This fight should really truly be one for the ages as two of the hottest signings in Forbidden Violence face of in the debuts, with both trying to make a statement. A lot of fans feel Sabonis comes into this fight the favourite but is coming of the back of a loss in that GAMMA title shot, while Mang has some momentum following his victory over Miko Maia (a 2nd round TKO stoppage win). Not much of an edge in this one for either competitor and we should look for a finish but I wouldn’t want to be a punter placing a bet in this one, as it could go either way!

 

Light Heavyweight Title Match-up

*Champion* Jamalski Ramirezovic (23-21-0) vs Gegard Mousasi (29-6-1)

One of two title fights on the card – alongside the Lightweight title match-up between Joensen and Vinayagamoorthy – is the Light Heavyweight bout between Jamalski Ramirezovic and Gegard Mousasi for Ramirezovic and it will have all the fans talking leading into this one. If you’re looking for an edge one competitor has over the other it may possibly be in the ground game of Mousasi who is a Black belt in BJJ but the chances of getting the champion on his back are slim.

 

The Champion will be going in feeling confident in his takedown defence and defensive grappling to keep him safe when the fight is not on his favoured position. Ramirezovic will definitely want to keep the fight standing and let his fists do the talking as he looks for a – unlucky for some – 13th victory by (T)KO. The Forbidden Violence original has been here since FV #2, having won six and only ever lost once – a title fight to Jethro Savage.

 

Champion vs Challenger is all this fight needs to be billed as, as these two men need (and have fiven) few words before a fight publically, but you can guarantee these huge men will leave it all in the cage and go to war Saturday. I’m glad I’m not a betting man because I’d hate to have to call this one before it starts, it’s challenger Mousasi vs the champion, Jamalski Ramirezovic and it’s going to be a great one!

 

Main Card

Mirko "The Angel Of Death" McCracken (17-8) vs Vinícius "Pontão" Cavalcante (22-3)

Vinícius "Pontão" Cavalcante is a real force to deal with and showed just that in his debut for Forbidden Violence at FV Midweek #3 when he beat Jordan Johnson by unanimous decision. Mirko McCraken is the former Super Heavyweight champion of FV and will be looking to get back on his feet and straight back into the title picture after losing his belt to the reigning champion Nick Foles (Foles will defend his belt @ FV #23 against Ali Baba Mohammed).

 

This fight has the makings of a real classic as McCraken is clearly the better boxer between the two but “Pontao” will look to utilize his advantage on the ground over “The Angel of Death” and force a submission against this hugely supported and hyped former champions. If Cavalcante can get the fight to the ground you have to feel this bout will be over quickly but the Brazilian is no slouch on his feet even, with a strong Muay-Thai background. We look forward to this one here in the MMA Grand and the fans should blow the roof of the place when the former champion emerges into the isle way.

 

"Kamikaze" Yoshiro Gomi (19-18) vs "Quick Popper" Orville Redenbacher (36-13-1)

If you are looking for a fight featuring two men who love to finish but in very different styles, this fight is the one for you featuring the submission artist Yoshiro Gomi against the striking specialist Orville Redenbacher. 15 of “Kamikaze”’s wins have come from submission while an incredible 28 of “Quick Poppers” have been from TKO or KO which are incredible numbers. This one should be exciting for the fans, although many see it as Gomi either has to finish or run the risk of losing by decision (as he has done 13 times previously out of 16 decision s he’s gone too).

 

DeAngelo Suggs (9-3) vs Charles "The Hand Grenade" Handly (26-18)

The fans of Forbidden Violence love to see one of their younger hot prospects face off against a more experienced member of the roster and this will happen when rookie DeAngelo Suggs faces veteran Charles Handley. ”The Hand Grenade” will look to explode in the face of Suggs and destroy any plans the 25-year-old had of winning this fight and rightly Handly does go in the odds on favourite for this one but some people say there is no replacement for hunger, and hunger is just what Suggs is. Suggs will be looking to make it a streak of 5 successive victories while Handly will look to continue his recovery – after winning his FV debut – of the same number of losses in a row during the end of his Bushido career. The winner of this one will really put a lot of people not only in the lightweight division on notice, but also the entire organisation. In terms of skill and popularity this may not be the most anticipated fight of the night but it certainly has potential to be the fight of the night on Saturday.

 

Lightweight Title Fight

*Champion* "Stallion" Johann Joensen (37-26) vs Ring Vinayagamoorthy (5-6)

One of the biggest bouts at FV 22 is the fight between current Lightweight Champion Johann Joensen and Ring Vinayagamoorthy, as the Spanish “Stallion” looks to defend his new title against the former champion in a rematch from FV Midweek #4. That fight went right the way to the wire, going the full five round distance as Joensen edged out Vinayagamoorthy and took the win by Split Decision. Some fans feel that the decision should’ve been Unanimous in favour of Joensen but every Forbidden Violence fan agrees on one thing, and that’s that they want to see these two men go at it against – especially after their Fight of the Night performance last time.

 

Johann Joensen, after winning the title on May 28th, was ready to move on from this post fight asking who’s next at the end of his press conference but did have this to say of his opposition on Saturday;

“Thank you to all the fans for tonight and my opponent, I was better but kid, you earned my respect. I'll see you around some time!”

That time came sooner than expected for the new Lightweight Champion and it’ll be interesting to see how these two men fair off after their brutal fight a mere 10 days ago when they fight once more with so little rest.

 

When you look at these two fighters of paper Joensen seems clearly the favourite to defend his belt but Vinayagamoorthy – dubbed “Soul Captain” by his opponent Saturday night – will be looking to use some of that heart and soul to cause the upset. You have to feel his best chance of doing that will be on the ground, as the “Stallion” is one of the best on his feet not just at Lightweight but also on the entire Forbidden Violence roster. We look forward to another hard thought fight and we can only hope that Vinayagamoorthy has recovered from his injuries in such a short space of time before he faces the fresher – and relatively unscathed from their last battle – champion, Johann Joensen.

 

Under Card

Ford "The Alien" Prefect (18-14) vs Mark "Mean Streak" Tanner (16-14)

These two men both stepped up to the plate when owner Frank King needed a fight to replace one that had to be cancelled and after both men had only fought one week ago Saturday, it’ll be interesting to see how a lack of preparation and fitness will affect the two competitors. They both had very contrasting fortunes at FV #21 with Perfect suffering a loss against D. Garcia and Tanner taking an impressive victory against Penn Alliance. This time out will be interesting to see what they can muster so soon after hard fought fights that both reached the third round but they will both give it their best shot to put on a show and take the W.

 

"Cowboy" Jon Monroe (17-10-1) vs Marlon "The Predator" Worthy (25-17-0)

The “Cowboy” will be taking his first fight for Forbidden Violence away from the midweek events since his arrival when Jon Monroe takes on Marlon “The Predator” Worthy. Both me take this fight against the other off the back of losses but neither will be too concerned as they are both capable of pulling off wins in any situation. Monroe has been called into question several times though for not being able to pull it off when it really matters. The “Cowboy” has had 5 title fights in his career and not been able to take the win in a single one of them, while on the other side of the cage will be a man they named the “Predator” for his ability to hunt and finish his opponent, along with title belts. Worthy has referenced this difference in success to several fans so it is clear his confidence and moral is high, it’ll just be interesting to see how this plays out.

 

The Steel Penn Alliance (5-10) vs Cletus "The All American" White (15-16)

These two fighters’ careers mirror each other very closely, but not in the positive way you normally read of when an article hypes a fight. They both started their careers 4-2 and looking ahead with a bright future in front of them. Now they both come into this fight having lost 9 fights in the combined last 10 fights and each on a 4 & 5 losing streak respectively so this fight holds gigantic repercussions for the career or each fighter. A win for either man could really turn around their career and give them some light that they could go on to bring fights back under their control and gain some confidence – but that’ll be easier said than done! Personally I see White having the advantage but having only taken 1 win in his last 7 fights confidence is going to be rock bottom, it’s the same story for Penn Alliance as he has only snatched 1 victory in his last 9 fights so anything could happen in this one. I see it being a real dog fight and the man that lays it on the line and comes out fighting will take it and may set themselves back on course.

 

With two titles on the line the fans will have something to really look forward to and with several fan favourites being featured in high class bouts it gives them even more hope for a top card. Both HGH Nutrients (who provide the of the night awards) and Championship Clothingwill be providing the merchandise for the event with all Forbidden Violence clothing available at the online CC store and the nutrition that fuels the champions available at HGH – best nutrition supplements in Tycoon. We look forward to seeing you pack the MMA Grand Arena on Saturday night as these great competitors go to war!

Unleashed Chaos Fight League Press Release

Friday 6th June 2014

 

The Tokyo based organisation begins anew life with a fresh name, new ownership with new ideas (but the same fighters you loved so much to watch) and much much more!

 

Damien Washington has taken control of the organisation known as UCFL and placed fellow RISSA member, Dan “TheMould” Milner, as Vice-President of the company as he looks to turn the Tokyo organisation into a force to be reckoned with. The two have brought in some fresh ideas for the organisation and have confirmed to Championship Press Association that they will do whatever it takes and match the hard work of their fighters to bring this organisation to the top.

 

New talents have already signed since the announcement of the takeover, with names such as Sabin FigaroJoulu "Perse" Pukki and Baas Baako having already signed on the dotted line for the company to join the likes of UCFL fan favourites Birigiz Ignatiev and Randy "The Rocker" Slader. Daniel Milner also said “Old members of the roster need not worry, as they will all be accommodated for as well, due to the loyalty showed during the last month or two while we were trying to make this all happen – we cannot be more grateful”.

 

Along with the new name, ownership and fighters the UCFL will bring you some exciting new concepts and promises the organisation it hasn’t previously witnessed. Firstly is the idea of rankings and title fights, which shall be decided after the first couple of week’s bouts. Rankings will be published on a fortnightly+ (14-21day) cycle so the fighters can keep an eye on who’s getting close to a title shot.

 

Along with those changes, one major and more impactful one is coming in too, and that is the reformatting of what was the “Super Heavyweight” division and turning that in an open-weight, 245k ID restricted division for the future of UCFL to develop their skills and compete against others of similar age. This division may be open weight but all match-ups will be based upon size as well as skill to keep the fights as even as possible.

 

Unleashed Chaos Fight League (formerly known as Evil Evolution) on the night of Thursday 5th June was sold to and taken over by new ownership at a pivotal moment in the organisations existence. With the organisation seemingly falling and concerns being expressed from its fighters publicly, an 11th hour bid from Damien “DW” Washington came in to flip the organisation on its head. 24 hours later, the org has been rebranded, cards and roster adjusted and beginning a new life with a lot of people excited. With both the experience and financial backing that Washington can bring, as well as the support that will undoubtable provided by his fellow RISSA members, it is clear to see why many now see a very bright future for the organisation now known as Unleashed Chaos Fight League.

FV #22 – XXX – Review

Live at the MMA Grand (Capacity 17,157) on Saturday 7th June

On a sunny evening in Las Vegas, Nevada, Forbidden Violence brought one of their strongest cards to the MMA Grand for the Forbidden faithful to watch go at it and try to prove themselves as the best. One title fight on a card is normally a treat but two is great and that’s what the fans got Saturday night, along with 8 other fights including an incredible main event.

 

Main Event

Lobsta "HIGH TILL I DIE" Mang (25-11-0) vs Arvydas Sabonis (24-11-0)

The main event of the evening featured two debutants who’s arrival in Forbidden Violence had been hyped so large the fans knew exactly what they were going to get. With a former GAMMA title challenger in Sabonis in the main even you know you’re going to be in for a treat and the fans were not left disappointed with this one, as it picked up the Fight of the Night award (sponsored by HGH Nutrients).

 

Sabonis truly didn’t disappoint fans expectations of him in this one as he dominated Mang for the majority of the 2 rounds this fight saw before Sabonis emerged winner by TKO. In the first round Sabonis pilled on pressure to Lobsta Mang and went on to cut him halfway through but the heart of Mong kept the fight alive. The second round was a similar story but Mang could do nothing to hold off the former-GAMMA fighter. Sabonis finished the fight in style – after cutting Mang open – with a big right hand, which sent the Mang down before Arvydas jumped down to finish him off and force the official to call a half to the bout. Post -fight Mang demanded a rematch and it’ll be interesting to see if this will be granted at any point in the future, but for now, I think you can safely say it’s Sabonis’ time to shine.

 

Light Heavyweight Title Match-up

*Champion* Jamalski Ramirezovic (23-21-0) vs Gegard Mousasi (29-6-1)

The second championship bout on the card was in the Light Heavyweight division (~205lbs) and was the main topic of talk from the fans coming into the arena on Saturday night with the Champion Jamalski Ramirezovic And after the event was over this bout was one of the main talking points of the fans on the way out as well and for all of the right reasons.

 

Many expected the champion to retain and control the fight but those thoughts were put to bed when in under 30 seconds Mousasi had cut open the head of the champ and was pressing hard causing damage. With blood still flowing from the cut, the champ made it to the interval but barely as Mousasi had controlled the whole first round. The second round continued in a similar vein and Mousasi continued to control the fight well both while stood up and on the ground. With just over a minute to go Mousasi scored a takedown and all he needed was 30 seconds to work the position, getting slightly loose and positioning for a triangle which the champ should’ve defended but didn’t. This cost him the title and gave the win to Mousasi in what was one of the sloppiest title losses I’ve seen in all of Forbidden Violence’s history to end a solid bout.

 

Main Card

Mirko "The Angel Of Death" McCracken (17-8) vs Vinícius "Pontão" Cavalcante (22-3)

Pure domination is only what Vinícius "Pontão" Cavalcante’s performance can be described as, when the Super Heavyweight beast ripped Mirko McCraken – a formidable opponent on most days in his own right – to shreds within the opening minute of the first round. McCracken was attacked from the offset and never had a chance of getting into the bout before being knocked-out by Cavalcante with one hell of a head kick that could put any man down no matter the size and was very deserving of KO of the night (which it was awarded).

 

Cavalcante controlled the fight landing kick and big kick to the so called “Angel of Death”. Off the bat Cavalcante had knocked McCracken down with a big head kick that also cut McCracken wide open. Seconds later it happened again, this time with a big uppercut from Cavalcante sending McCracken rocked and falling to the canvas. After waving him up a second time, Cavalcante finally put McCracken down with the same headkick that had knocked him down first time to take the victory. It was one minute of pure intensity and destruction and it puts "Pontão" on the map here for good in Forbidden Violence.

 

"Kamikaze" Yoshiro Gomi (19-18) vs "Quick Popper" Orville Redenbacher (36-13-1)

Gomi vs Redenbacher was a solid fight for the most part Saturday night that kept the fans engaged for its entirety but it really got going in the third round. After two rounds, which everybody in the arena knew the judges will have scored a round a piece for the two evenly match combatant, both corners knew they were coming into the third round with everything to fight for. And fight they did, while the first two rounds were of decent quality the last was a show stealer. Both “Kamikaze” and “Quick Popper” left it all on the line but it was “QuickPopper” that edged the decision when the final bell rang, taking the fight 29:28 on all three judges’ score cards. The fight was definely won in that last round as Redenbacher busted open Gomi before leaving him on his last legs with seconds to go with a strong left hand. Gomi will be gutted he couldn’t pull it off in the last round but it was a well-deserved victory for Orville Redenbacher and the fans let him know it post fight!

 

DeAngelo Suggs (9-3) vs Charles "The Hand Grenade" Handly (26-18)

DeAngelo Suggs took a strong win over Charles Handly on Saturday night by TKO in the second round in a fight that many fans saw the veteran Handly as favourite in. Suggs dominated the first round, with the exception of giving up a takedown but quickly worked his way back to feet and controlled. The second round saw a solid striking display from Suggs as he laid shot after shot on Handly and eventually got the breakthrough when Handly (seemingly dazed) in an act of desperation threw a wild shot at Suggs that Suggs countered with a huge uppercut. The uppercut send “The Hand Grenade” exploding to the mat as Suggs followed him down landing a good couple more shots before the referee could jump between and call a halt to the bout.

 

Lightweight Title Fight

*Champion* "Stallion" Johann Joensen (37-26) vs Ring Vinayagamoorthy (5-6)

After the last fight these two men had at FV Midweek #4, the fans expected another phenomenal, closely contested war and that is exactly what they got. This fight ended up even more controversial than the first with it resulting in a draw, although the draw was seemingly the right result (although chants of one more round broke out before the decision was announced), it wasn’t until the scoring of the fight was revealed that the controversy began.

 

Judge A scored the victory for the “Stalion” 48:47, Judge B went draw 48:48, while Judge C gave extremely questionable scoring of 46:49 in favour of the challenger. The reigning champion, Johann Joensen , was very quick to comment in his post-fight saying “I want to know what that third judge was smoking? Awarding a 46:49? King you need to get him checked under the drug testing policy as that crazy fool was clearly on something.” It’ll be interesting to see if the champions comments draw any response from Frank King in defence of his judges but one thing is for sure, as confirmed by the owner, Joensen vs Vinayagamoorthy will happen in the future, just it won’t be the champs next match-up.

 

Under Card

Ford "The Alien" Prefect (18-14) vs Mark "Mean Streak" Tanner (16-14)

A fight that saw the majority of the action on the ground may not have been the highlight of most fans nights but was a solid, technical bout none the less. It also featured combined 17 submission attempts from the two men, of which only two were in the second round and only one was needed to grab Mark Tanner the victory by Armbar (Submission). It was sloppy from “The Alien” following a failed submission attempt on Tanner of his own to allow Tanner to get the space to set it up but once that armbar was on the only way it was coming off was by Prefects tapping.

 

"Cowboy" Jon Monroe (17-10-1) vs Marlon "The Predator" Worthy (25-17-0)

Monroe vs Worth was a fight that had the fans interest for its entirety and deservedly so. These two men performed superbly on Saturday night and both men wanted to finish the other. The finish came when a blood soaked Monroe (from an earlier cut) took a good right hook to the temple leaving him dazed and Worthy wasted no time, showing his “Predator” instinct in following up and delivering several vicious strikes as Monroe fell to the ground. “The Predator” took the very impressive TKO win in his stride very humbly and spent more time thanking his fans than looking over the fight post-fight.

 

Wensink (5-4) vs Sonnen (19-15)

A last minute addition to the card didn’t disappoint in entertaining the fans as this fight was an exciting contest. Sonnen got the takedown (as most suspected he’d go for) and proceeded to punish Wensink on the ground. The victory finally came for Sonnen (by TKO strikes) when he landed a big left than that left Wensink without the ability to defend himself sensibly and Sonnen made him pay with 3 more big strikes before the official stepped in.

 

The Steel Penn Alliance (5-10) vs Cletus "The All American" White (15-16)

These two men just cannot buy a win at the moment and there was no separating Penn Alliance and Cletus White when they met this past Saturday. The fight went the full three round distance and resulted in a draw after the 15minutes were up as the two fighters put on a show for the Las Vegas crowd. The early parts of the fight may have started tentative but by the second and third round these two struggling athletes were going all out for the finish. Hopefully owner and match-maker Frank King will look to book these two for a grudge match to settle a winner. Who would’ve bet that this card would’ve produced two draws.

 

An impressive event once again from Forbidden Violence, scoring a 338 on the MMA Tycoon scoring system. This will definitely be helped by the main event and both of the title matches – particularly Joensen vs Ring in that spectacular draw. As always HGH Nutrients sponsored the “Of The Night” awards they were awarded to;

Fight of the Night: Arvydas Sabonis vs Lobsta Mang

Sub of the Night: Gegard Mousasi

KO of the Night: Vinícius Cavalcante

Presents….

The Sal Forlenzo Memorial

On Sunday the 15th of June live at Sparta’s Palace (7,000)

On a weekend filled with many high profile events now are more so than this one, Championship Press Association brings to you the event preview that is in remembrance for Sal Forlenzo. It has been said before and we’ll say it again on this third memorial event;

“Johnny Brickhead was the PLAYER, SAL was the MAN”

 

Main Event

Doug Graves (24-13) vs Phil Ivey (42-18)

Another former GAMMA title contender joins Forbidden Violence after the controversy around the formerly big organisation left him in need of a new home. Phil Ivey was one of the premier talents at the aforementioned organisation and will be looking to show why he was considered such a top dog, in his debut this Sunday. Ivey said to CPA he was honoured to be making his debut on such a card and wanted to get the win in memory for Sal.

 

He will have a big struggle on his hands though to achieve this as his opponent, former Syn competitor Doug Graves, has proven to be the real deal since joining FV racking up 2 wins in his last couple of fights and making waves in the light heavyweight division. Both men have been finding a lot of finishes lately and the fans will want to see more of it but they’ll also be hoping for their money’s worth and seeing a couple solid  and well contested rounds before it comes.

 

Featherweight Title Fight

"The One" Daniel Dylan (27-17) vs Lyoto Parks (16-6)

This featherweight title fight is one of the most anticipated in the history of the featherweight division in Forbidden Violence as Daniel Dylan looks to defend his belt for the first time against the ever impressive Japanese national Lyoto Parks. Parks lost a closely contested fight against Honor FC top dog, Pitbull, last time out but had already been scheduled for this fight after his incredibly impressive debut at FV #18 against Sau Minneo.

 

Dylan won the belt last time out against Jameson in a fight he was very much the favourite to take but this fight will be a different story as Parks will be a tougher match-up and will be looking to stop “The One” from making his first defence and win his fifth consecutive fight. These two are competent on both feet and when down on the mat but Parks has demonstrated better skill in finishing from the ground. Dylan showed just how unpredictable his offence is with his last fight when he took the W after an impressive Superman Punch KO victory to take the title, so this one should have the fans on the edge of their seats looking for the finish.

 

Main Card

Fedor "The Last Emperor" Emelianenko (36-25-0) vs "Bad Bad" Leroy Brown (34-16-2)

To start his career Leroy Brown went on an insane run of 19 victories in his first 23 fights, unfortunately as the competition stepped up Browns career rounded off a bit and “Bad Bad” Leroy Brown became more, “Occasionally sensational, Occasionally Average” Leroy Brown. With that all being said, the Chicago native is still an exciting fighter to watch who can pull out the spectacular at any point – particularly when he’s on his feet.

 

Emelianenko is a bit more varied than his opponent and is a threat from both the stand up and the ground, with a lot of his victories coming from controlling he ground and getting the submission or controlling the fight for the decision. This fight could go anyway but Brown must be preparing to attempt to halt that world class BJJ of “The Last Emperor” with his solid wrestling, if not he could be in a world of trouble.

 

Ole "Big Iron" Solseng (13-7) vs Grigory "Iron Man" Gukepshev (10-3)

Two fighters who may not pick up much hype and prestige but are certainly favourites of the fans are the duo that faces of against one and other in this one here, when the American Solseng meets Gukepshev of Russia. This bout firmly deserves its place on the main card and both men will be looking for a solid win to impress the FV fans and Frank King, along with paying tribute on this emotional night. Only one decision victory in the history of each of these men’s careers so we should be in for an exciting finish and with a couple of Fight on the Night awards this year between them the fight as a whole shouldn’t disappoint.

 

Heavyweight Title Fight

"Polan" Titus Arellius (18-9) vs Oleg Karev (31-14)

The fight for the Heavyweight title is contested between two very evenly matched fighters who are both very similar in style. Both Arellius and Karev has historically looked for that smash mouth stand and bang style and this should make for a top bout on this very important card. Arellius is arguably one of the best under-30’s in the world of MMA Tycoon but Arellius has had a Journeyman career and looks to settle in Forbidden Violence now as champion.

 

His opponent Karev makes his third Forbidden Violence appearance and he will be wanting to make it three straight wins during his spell here.The fight is pretty even and the fans are expecting a brawl with a lot of the fight being fought on the fighters feet. Neither man really seemingly has an advantage on the ground so I find it unlikely they will want to take the fight their but it could happen. This is MMA and you never truly know what will happen in a fight until it has happened.

 

Undercard

Parvati Mellia (7-1) vs Marlon "The Predator" Worthy (26-17)

Bulgaria are represented on this FV card when Mellia makes his second FV appearance against the man they call “The Predator” Marlon Worthy. Worthy will be making his third appearance in third weeks, showing what a well-oiled machine he is and you must admire his ability to push off injuries. Worthy would normally come in red hot favourite but some fans have said the fatigue will have to show sooner or later and is he hurt after his last fight or not? That will be seen in this fight which will be a great introduction to the main card.

 

Sean Stone (22-13) vs Mirko "The Angel Of Death" McCracken (17-9)

I feel obliged to say with this one I see a stand up vs grappler scenario playing out here. McCracken is the KO king and loves to finish his opponents with one big hit, leaving them like a pile of crumpled rubble whiles Stone will look to have utilize his tough jaw and take the fight to the ground when he can. Although Stone can stand and bang the most sensible idea must be to look to bring McCracken down and work on him there.

 

Arnie "The Mountain" McDougle (22-12) vs "The Mad Monk" Grigori Rasputin (9-6)

McDougle vs Rasputin is the bout to watch on the under card and the two warriors will feel unlucky to be here considering their relative popularity and hype at present time but with a card as stacked as this you can understand why. The bigger of the two men is McDougle who is also the more versatile, with a stronger ground game that he may look to exploit against “The Mad Monk”. Rasputin will want to keep it standing but McDougle will be happy their too so this should be a good one!

 

Lester Green (20-13-1) vs "Redz" Romano Schoots (31-23)

40 decisions in one fighters career is not something many fighters can boast but Romano Schoots can do and to add to that can even add he’s won exactly half with 20 decision victories in his favour. Green is no slouch though as the former Syn competitor impressed as FV midweek #5 victory during the week. Fatigue is a question in this one again though as Schoots took a fight a mere 4 days ago, is he ready for another and can he go full pace.

 

Nycky Downtime (29-25-2) vs "Cowboy" Jon Monroe (17-11-1)

This bout is one I do not see going the distance as submission artist Nycky Downtime will face off the “Cowboy” Jon Monroe. Downtime may be prolific on the ground but his jaw has been compared to a substance not much stronger than glass, having been knocked out a total of 15 times in his career. Monroe will look to take advantage of that and put Downtime down for the count. Featherweight bouts are often under hyped but not this one, it may be the opener but the fans and management will not be overlooking this one!

 

Forbidden Violence will look to pay honour and tribute to the man the game knew as Johnny Brickhead, but his friends knew as Sal and these fighters will do a great job in doing so. At the same time as this these men will also be looking to impress owner Frank King to stake a claim for a title shot or win/retain their respective titles on this Saturday night.

A Review of Forbidden Violence’s….

The Sal Forlenzo Memorial

On Sunday the 15th of June live at Sparta’s Palace (7,000)

This event was for one man and one man only;

“Johnny Brickhead was the PLAYER, SAL was the MAN”

 

Main Event

Doug Graves (24-13) vs Phil Ivey (42-18)

A main event that truly living up to its billing with both fighters giving it their all is what the fans hoped for coming into this one, and it’s exactly what they got on Sunday evening, when Graves faced Ivey in the main event on The Sal Forlenzo Memorial show. It had picked up a lot of hype coming in and the fans fully expecting a finish at any point stopping the fight due to each of the fighters only reaching the final bell once each in their respective last 5 bouts.

 

The first round of the fight was one of the most closely contested of not just tonight’s card in Forbidden Violence but the whole of MMA across the weekend as the two fought and battled with Graves arguably edging the fight despite getting a huge cut opened up halfway through from a short left in the clinch. The fights finish came in the second when out of nowhere Ivey caught Graves flush with a shoulder strike that appeared to daze Graves before Ivey proceeded to land several strikes which then proceeded to Graves falling down defenceless needing the referee’s protection and causing the end of the fight. As Phil Ivey was announced winner by TKO (strikes) the two fighters were met with a huge ovation from the audience who appreciated such a whole hearted performance form both men.

 

Featherweight Title Fight

"The One" Daniel Dylan (27-17) vs Lyoto Parks (16-6)

The featherweight title bout featuring reigning Champion Daniel Dylan and fresh hot challenger Lyoto Parks was one of the most anticipated in the history of the featherweight division in Forbidden Violence and had a lot of fans wondering how/why it wasn’t the main event of the evening. Parks was coming in hot onto this one with his only loss being to “The Pitbull” from HFC during the cross promotional event.

 

Parks class shone through during the first two rounds dominating Dylan and leaving the champion on a knife edge, brushing off the champs multiple attempts at submissions on him in the first and at the end of the second Parks left Dylan dazed but the bell saved him before the official had to give him a hand. During the second round interval both corners were frantic with Dylan’s encouraging him to go out with the intention to finish and Parks not wanting to leave anything to chance and capitalize while the champ could still be rocked. Parks went out and continued how he started, controlling the stand-up forcing Dylan to take him to the mat, but Parks made him pay with a locked in armbar while Dylan was trying to transition which the champ could only escape from by tapping. That was it, FV have a new champion, the impressive Lyoto Parks and he’ll be looking to take on all newcomers in the same way he won the belt.

 

Main Card

Fedor "The Last Emperor" Emelianenko (36-25-0) vs "Bad Bad" Leroy Brown (34-16-2)

This was another entertaining fight and while it won’t go down as a technical clinic or as an all-out war, a fight like this certainly has its place on the card and in the sport. After a very closely contest first round, neither fighter looked like giving in soon and both wanted to go the distance but seconds into the second round Emelianenko cut Brown open with a solid shot but Brown weathered the storm. The end finally came with only one minute left in the second round as “The Last Emperor” finished the fight with a massive combo that left Brown out for the count, leaving Emeliankenko with the KO victory – which could very possibly be announced as KO of the night! Once again post fight Brown brought his future into question but the fans and fighters alike can only hope he returns for at least one more bout.

 

Ole "Big Iron" Solseng (13-7) vs Grigory "Iron Man" Gukepshev (10-3)

In the battle of the Iron men “Big Iron” faced “Iron Man” as another extremely surprising one sided affair occurred on this special night. The beat down that was put onGukepshev by Solseng lasted for just over half one round with the fight being finally stopped after 2minutes 32 seconds when the official had finally seen enough and stopped the bout. On his way to the TKO victory, Solseng knocked Gukepshev twice and allowed him to get up but on the third occasion he had done enough playing and followed “Iron Man” down to show even an iron jaw is susceptible to a beating occasionally.

 

Heavyweight Title Fight

"Polan" Titus Arellius (18-9) vs Oleg Karev (31-14)

When title fights come along fans instantly thing of the full blown brawls and championship round finishes but this title fight in the Heavyweight division was not one of them. It was more of a shock victory where the fight is finished in the early part of one of the first couple of rounds. Unfortunately for the champion he was dominated from start to finish, being knocked down twice, busted wide open and left dazed before Karev finally put “Polan” Titus Arellius down for good when Karev beat Arellius to a defenceless pulp before the official stepped in to end the bout and give Karev not only the victory but also the heavyweight title! Karev didn’t hold back post-fight ever, claiming he was the best damn thing in the organisation and he was going to take over and dominate.

 

Undercard

Parvati Mellia (7-1) vs Marlon "The Predator" Worthy (26-17)

The final fight of the undercard for the evening was the bout between Mellia and Worthy which hwent the distance to a decision as neither one of these two great competitors could put away the other within the 15minute time frame. The first round stole the victory for Worthy as “The Predator” was unlucky not to put away Mellia in the first and it wasn’t till the last round where Mellia really got an edge over Worthy but it was too late by them. To the surprise of very few before the fight and even less after it Marlon Worth was announced winner by unanimous decision (28:29) and post-fight Worthy had this to say; “I just want to thank all my loyal fans for their support, you guys have been amazing and I couldn’t keep doing this without you!”

 

Sean Stone (22-13) vs Mirko "The Angel Of Death" McCracken (17-9)

For the first time in weeks FV owner Frank King and sponsors HGH Nutrients have some serious head scratching when it comes to choosing the submission of the night at an event, as for the first time in what feels like forever there is a significant amount of choice to choose from. The candidate from this fight? That’s Sean Stone for perfectly executed arm-triangle against a fading Mirko McCracken in the second round of this bout, which gave Stone the victory. Stone will be proud of this victory and, despite it not being the most entertaining fighter, Stone controlled throughout and put himself in with a chance to win the “of the night” award for that submission.

 

Arnie "The Mountain" McDougle (22-12) vs "The Mad Monk" Grigori Rasputin (9-6)

The quickest finish of the night came in this one as Grigori Raspitun pounded McDougle down and took a very dominant victory by TKO within the first minute. The finish finally came in the action packed fight after McDougle had been busted open terribly by a huge head kick and a nice jab that left blood squirting from a cut just above the eyebrow. The final blow was a big right hook that left him for dead but Rasputin was taking no chances and dived down on top with hammer fists and elbows to make sure the victory was complete.

 

Lester Green (20-13-1) vs "Redz" Romano Schoots (31-23)

The last of three submission victories took place in this fight between Green and Schoots that finished when on his 5th submission attempt Green was able to lock in a triangle choke and force Schoots to tap to take the victory. A solid win for the American, as he looks to move up that card here in Forbidden Violence with victories such as that one.

 

Nycky Downtime (29-25-2) vs "Cowboy" Jon Monroe (17-11-1)

The card got kicked off by a true show stopping brawl in one of the fights of the night as Nycky Downtime and “Cowboy” Jon Monroe went to all out, no holds barred war! With little thought for their own safety these two men put on a real show with both men being on their last legs at one point or another in the fight. It ended in the same style the bout had been contested in when a bloodied Monroe was unable to defend a big straight right that sent him crumpling to the mat to give Downtime the victory, when watching the replay you can see Monroe was out before he even hit the canvas in one of the most brutal finishes in FV history. There’s a reason the organisation is called Forbidden Violence folks!

 

A lot of impressive fights occurred on this very special nights and each one was worthy of the man it was in remembrance of. A lot of fighters really made a name for themselves from the top of the card to the bottom with the likes of Nycky Downtime giving the fans something to remember and talk about on the way home. The main event and co-main event really did not disappoint at all and the only disappointment will be from the loser’s corner than they couldn’t steal the victory.

The Unleashed Chaos Fight League

Opening Weekend Preview!

Welcome to the pre-show preview of UCFL’s opening weekend where we here at Championship Press Association will cover both of the events coming out of The Underground, Tokyo on Friday (20th) and Saturday (21st) of June. The Openning Ceremony and UCFL #1: Total Domination have got the fans across the globe of MMA excited and we want to get their mouths watering even more for what’s to come over the two events.

 

UCFL Opening Ceremony

We’ll start where we should, at the beginning, with the UCFL opening ceremony. This card is jam packed with the faces the fans already know here in Tokyo from the time the organisation spent under another name. The card is headed by the young hot Randy “The Rocker” Slader (13-5-0) who will take on the fan favourite veteran Vitor "Anaconda" Gracie (32-17-2). This has a lot of fans excited as it’s not only a potential passing of the torch and the ending to the first night in the history of the UCFL but it’s also got the potential to be the fight of the night. This will be your typical stand-up striker vs technical submission artist, with the 42-year old Gracie taking an impressive 21 submission victories in his career and his opponent Slade preferring to knock some people’s heads off having won most of his fights by KO. It’s not very often I sit here and comfortably predict a main effect will have a finish but I’d happily predict a definitive one on Friday night in this one!

 

The co-main event of the evening will also be a closely contested affair when we see Ben Ladin faces Ilya Murometz for the second time in this Heavyweight clash. The last time these two met Ben Ladin suffered an early first round loss when he was knocked down and finished by a hungry Murometz but not very many people see that happening again with Ladin coming in off the back of a victory against Rostam Samani.

 

Another rematch on the card, showing fresh starts and new chances are available is the match-up between Yuya Inoue and Jaakko Jussila. Following their first match – a submission victory in clinical style for Yuya Inoue – Jaakko Jussila has been near inconsolable and walking round like a man who’s lost everything. The change in management in UCFL has given him the promise of a fresh chance and the opportunity to prove himself. Inoue was more than happy to partake in the rematch aswell as he has full confidence in his ability to repeat that and take one more submission victory. The real decider or this fight is if Jussila can keep it stood up, if so he remains in control and likely winner but the second Inoue gets it down to the mat (if he can) it’ll all be over!

 

Another fight which has my attention a contest that’s not even on the main card and to be completely honest, it’s more about the situation around the fight than the quality when these two bantamweight face off. Yi vs Park is unlikely to be the clinical display of some on the main card for the opening event in the history of UCFL but it certainly will be an emotional one as it will be Parks final fight before retirement. The grappler has apparently been suffering from some health issues but will be wanting to finish his career on a high note after promising the fans one last fight.

 

UCFL #1: Total Domination

There are plenty of other top fights on the opening nights card but we have a jam packed weekend of action from Unleashed Chaos Fight League to cover and we’ll now turn our attention to the other event of the evening, the companies first official fight card following the opening night, UCFL #1: Total Domination! A fight card that will feature 10 more top bouts and has been near set in stone since Thursday 12th June and the fans with be excited about this one.

UCFL Opening Weekend Review Show (Part One)

A strong panel featuring Championship Press Associations Rachel BarkerUCFL Vice-President Dan Milner and Calvin Hobbs of J-Sport discuss both UCFL’s Openning Ceremony and their first event, Total Domination, on tonight’s review show. Part one see’s the three discuss UCFL’s Opening Ceremony.

 

UCFL Opening Ceremony

Thoughts on the opening fight of the new beginning for the organisation between Luke Milner and Nemo Nautilus?

Rachel Barker: I thought it was a very convincing performance from Milner on Friday evening and it was a great start to the show, nearly deserving of submission of the night with his finish as well. His technique was spot on for the submission when he locked in that arm-triangle to take the victory but what really impressed me was how aggressive he was while not sacrificing any of the technique. He didn’t mess about and that showed whether you just see the result or the actual fight as he decisively took the submission victory after only 30 seconds.

 

Hayes and Park both took victories in their final fights from UCFL against Coiro and Yi, are you sad to see them leave and wind their careers up so young?

Calvin Hobbs: I think it was the perfect way for all four of those men to finish up their career, unfortunately Coiro and Yi both leave with losses but Hayes and Park left to respectful applause from the fans, and at the level these men were at you have to understand just why they left. Your health and life opportunities sometimes have to come before your fighting, none of these guys were ever going to set the world on fire but they all played their part during their careers.

Dan Milner: Yeah of course, I never like to see fighters leave the organisation, let alone leave the fight game all together but it’s a decision I respect from all four.

 

Silva vs Gracie was the only fight to make it to a decision but some fans are saying that’s more down to the fighters holding back than a stalemate, is that something you agree with?

Dan Milner: I think any fans that are thinking that are delusional and/or simply stupid, bloody hungry cave animals. I will agree it wasn’t the most entertaining fight for those who do not enjoy a technical display but neither fighter really held back. I feel after the first round Silva simply outclassed Gracie and controlled so well but Gracie did defend well and never gave in once so hats off their. I think Silva has real potential here in Unleashed Chaos Fight League, he just needs to fulfil it over time and with victories like tonights, and he will do.

 

Shinji Tanaka not only took a submission victory over Andrey but he also took Sub of the Night, do you think this rightly edged out Luke Milner’s Submission earlier on in the night?

Rachel Barker: Yes and no, on the submission itself, I feel it’s a matter of preference, both fighters got their respective holds in deep and Nemo may have not defended Milner’s well but it was a good hold from Milner none the less. What really gave Tanaka the edge for me on the winning of the award was the situation he won it in. Tanaka got battered for 13 minutes straight, he’s clearly loosing on the cards and Andrey is looking for the decision victory but he turns it up a gear, empties the gas tank and gets the Guillotine. If Andrey had have escaped that Tanaka would’ve lost the fight, it would’ve been all over but he held it and got that W. It was a great comeback and I don’t even think his corner saw it coming or believed it was going to happen until it did.

Vymiatajec got beat tonight by one of the most controversial finished, a submission TK,O when Andrei Chikatilo took victory Saturday night

Rachel Barker: I know Calvin is quiet opinionated on this so I’ll let him get his say in just a second but first I’ve got to say, what a popular fight Andrei Chikatilo is becoming, the fans love this man! Dan you guys at UCFL do not give this guy enough hype before his fights, the fans went crazy for him after this win!

Dan Milner: *laughs* Well yeah, he was coming in of the back of two losses but this is a man that it looks like the takeover and break/transition period enforced by it really suited him. It was an impressive victory and the fans do enjoy watching a 28 year old who has 30+ fights under his belt.

Calvin Hobbs: I completely agree, it’s a great victory, nothing should be taken away from him but I want to know how the hell this is classified as a TKO victory if the opposition has tapped, verbally or physically, the man tapped! It’s a submission win! And how can you, if you’re not going to call it a submission in the first place, have the audacity to call it a Submission TKO victory… it’s ridiculous but I’ll try not let my rant take away from the decisiveness of Chikatilo’s victory, it was a great performance by the man and hopefully he’ll follow on with more.

 

Less controversially Berkowitz knocked Kane out cold in the middle of the cage…

Dan Milner: Yeah, simply put he truly finished him, a fight does not end any more decisively than this one did as Berkowitz really put physical beating on Kane and then finished him with a phenominal straight right that nearly took Kane’s head off, if that’s not knock-out power what is?

Calvin Hobbs: I agree with Dan, true knockout power on display from Berkowitz and to be honest, it’s been too long since we last saw it, we’ve seen some knockdowns from him, but it isn’t since early on in his career have we seen him lay somebody out like that and I loved every millisecond of it! Give me some more of that to talk!

 

Submission beat stand-up when Yaya Inoue took a dominant victory over Jaakko Jussila but was it the way you expected?

Calvin Hobbs: Not a chance! Nobody put money on that, if Inoue was taking the victory then everybody had him doing it by submission and possibly a decision, at a push, but with these guys records of 19 submission victories and 17 T/KO victories respectively, nobody had a decision as a real plausible situation. It’s great to see a fighter give himself some variety later on in their career.

Rachel Barker: Dan I’m looking and see two straight for Inoue, although both are over Jussila, does that push him up for a title shot, there aren’t many fighters more popular than him. Sorry Dan but you knew this question was coming at some point *laughs*

Dan Milner: haha, possible, very possible, but I as I’ve always said, in my eyes it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past, so other org records don’t interest me for now but what have you done for me lately is the big question. And Inoue has done his fair share, so he’s always in with a shout.

The co-main event saw Ilya Murometz and Ladin not even make the two minute fight as Murometz took a TKO victory after 1:32.

Dan Milner: Well to be honest I was hoping, in an ideal world, it would’ve gone further and lasted a bit longer but it really was a fantastic fight, a great advertisement for the organisation and the passion the fighters have not only for us but also their fighting. Ladin was unlucky because he got an early advantage and did some damage but at the end of the day Ilya took the victory through heart and it was deserved.

Rachel Barker: I agree, it was real heart from Murometz to stop the bleeding, quite literally, and take control to grab the win.

Calvin Hobbs: It was a bit all on the line for my liking, I don’t know what the game plan was coming in for both men but it seemed to get chucked out the window fairly quickly. Both men left it all on the line, that’s fantastic, but fighting the way both men did in that aggressive manner leaves a lot of opportunity for a quick finish and for an injury. We know we saw a quick finish but another question is did that fight leave either man injured coming out?

Rachel Barker: But Calvin, wouldn’t you rather see two men go out there and lay in on the line. Every fighter knows they are going to get hurt and these two put that aside to try impress and progress their career.

Calvin Hobbs: Maybe so but when two fighters go like that, maybe it excited the fans but Dan, as a fan of fighting you enjoy watching the fight but does it impress you. Doesn’t that make you think “oh if either of those men go on to face somebody who can whether that storm, they will get battered in the long run” because it’s impossible to keep that kind of aggression without gassing yourself.

Daniel Milner: I see where you are coming from and my argument to that is game planning and sticking to it, how do we know to go out there and swing for the fences wasn’t both men’s game plan? We don’t know what they truly planned to do in the cage but we saw what ended up unfolding in there and that gave the fans some entertainment and was well worth the co-main event slot in my opinion. If the fans and fighters are happy then I am too and while Ladin would’ve preferred the win I know he was happy with the match-up and it turns out the fans ended up loving it too, so that’s what’s really important.

 

The main-event of the night saw Randy “TheRocker” Slader win by TKO against a valiant but unuseful Vitor Gracie, what do you guys think was the difference and opinions on the fight itself?

Calvin Hobbs: It wasn’t the great fight we’d been hoping for in the build-up and I don’t think either fighter did too much to convince DW or Dan that they deserved a shot at the gold after this but Slader did enough to take the victory. The finish itself was of top quality, Slader’s timing was phenomenal to counter with that great uppercut and you really can’t ask for much more from your fighter when it comes to protecting yourself as the opposition begins, or in this case attempts to begin, a final frenzied attack in the round.

Dan Milner: I didn’t think it was a poor fight by any stretch of the imagination and I think MMA Tycoon has rated the fight fairly harshly but then again, that may be down to how dominant “The Rocker” was during this one and with the result never appearing to be in doubt. I must say, Slader would’ve had KO of the night if it wasn’t for the great one punch by Berkowitz earlier in the night.

Rachel Barker: I’ll tell you what made the difference for me, and it isn’t even during the fight, it was in the build-up. I think having your training camp and strategy arranged and planned by Bawon Samedi whose record of fighters he’s pushed onto new heights is endless. Is Slader in the same league as Dweedle Dee, of course not but he’s certainly on the way to being a major competitor in Unleashed Chaos.

Daniel Milner: I know he’s a fighter in my organisation but I disagree with that sorry to say Rachel, I think Slader may not YET be at the level of somebody like Dee but he sure could be one day. Look how good Slader is now and look at his age. 26 year years of age and he has opportunity to go on and truly be a force to be reckoned with. He is obviously a real contender here in Unleashed Chaos Fight League but I think he’s a force in the whole of the 170lbs division across the globe, people will not only travel to see this guy but also to fight him in the future.

Calvin Hobbs: Dan may appear slightly biased but he is right, the only thing that I have on the back of my mind is, is can UCFL keep hold of a talent like Slader, you’ve got to keep feeding him Dan, will the organisation grow as quick as the likes of Slader. That’s the real question.

Dan Milner: I have to say yes, for obvious reasons *laughs* but on a serious note, I see no reason why not, the likes of Slader can carry us forward and we can build our brand and division around the likes of him. This is just one fight, so don’t think I’m getting carried away but there are other like him who know how to get the job done and the fans enjoy watching him do it. Tonight may not have been a great war we are used to seeing, but the next fight could well be, either way he’s a threat to his opponent and he always has a chance of winning, well, more than a chance.

 

And finally guys do you have any last thought on the opening night of Unleashed Chaos Fight League….

Rachel Barker: Not particularly really, it was a solid event, I feel it could’ve been better but as the first it did its job, it got UCFL off to a good, solid start with Damien Washington at the helm and gave them a strong starting point which is what the organisation needed.

Calvin Hobbs: Agree very much with Rachel and will let Dan have the last say but I enjoyed the show quiet a lot, minus the whole TKO/Submission rubbish *laughs* but that’s across the whole of MMA! I must say a good start Dan, full capacity with 1,000 people packing the Underground in Tokyo, keep up the great work guys!

Dan Milner: Thanks for having me on the show and thanks for all the support, I’m a very ambitious guy and I’ll always look to improve the organisation as well as my skills in helping run it. I can’t wait till next weekend when we have UCFL #2: Bad Intentions coming from Tokyo live again, so stay tuned for more their!

UCFL Opening Weekend Review Show (Part Two)

Thank you for joining us after the break as we got back to the expert panel or CPA’s Rachel BarkerUCFL Vice-President Dan Milner and Calvin Hobbs of J-Sport discussing both UCFL’s Openning Ceremony and their first event, Total Domination, on tonight’s review show. In the second half of the show the three will discuss UCFL #1: Total Domination.

 

UCFL #1: Total Domination

Michael Bisping starts the second show the same way Luke Milner did the first with an Armbar submission victory over Tyler Miller

Rachel Barker: Michael Bisping promised it and the man really delivered, pre-fight he said it would be a victory and the fans would have the pleasure of watching and we did. I can’t really say much else outside of that. Miller got the takedown and should’ve been in control but was sloppy on the ground, either that or Bisping is just that good off his back to make Tyler look poor tonight. Either way it was a job well done by Bisping and not much else should be said, he deserved the of the night award for how fluid the move into the armbar was.

 

Anderson Silva remains unbeaten in his career with a Kimura Submission victory against Gio Avila, with only 5 seconds left in round 2!

Calvin Hobbs: 5 seconds…. 5 damn seconds and he couldn’t hold off Silva or withstand the pressure Silva was applying once he got it locked in. Personally I call that a lack of heart, take nothing away from Silva, he took advantage and locked it in well but Gio should really be ashamed of that performance. We’d been hearing in the build-up how successful training was and just how good he’d looked in camp but it’s all wasted if you don’t show some heart and fire in the cage on the night.

 

Evander put down Nomak early in the second with some solid strikes that left the official with no choice but to stop the fight

Dan Milner: I know I was meant to talk on this fight but it seems Calvin is hot tonight and probably best to let him get his opinions out as I can see him litrally biting his tounge out the corner of my eye.

Calvin Hobbs: *laughs* It’s not quiet that bad but I do have one thing to say, Gio Avila I hope you were watching this fight because even though Paul Nomak went down this kid showed heart! He was left on wobbly legs, getting pounded towards the end of the first and he may have gone purely on the defensive but Nomak showed some real fight and desire, he showed heart Gio! Learn from it!

Dan Milner: Think I’d better step in before Calvin’s blood pressure explodes through the roof *laughs* I don’t have much to add but I think Nomak did show some courage but Evander was pure class tonight, toward the end of that fight he was untouchable, his confidence was flowing and he looked great. I’m also going to stick up for Gio here because I don’t feel his performance was bad at all and how many people could last 10 seconds in a full locked on Kimura, I don’t know many! He held for 5 but god knows what damage would’ve been done if he hadn’t have tapped, he’d most likely not been able to continue anyway and we’d have likely seen a doctors stoppage between rounds if he’d had his arm broke

 

Was the scoring correct for Wanatabe vs Joaquin as Wanatabe left victorious by Majority Decision?

Rachel Barker: I feel for the judges as much as I feel for the fans watching, while there was a lot of technical ability on show in terms of positions and defence there was not a lot of offense to score from either man. I can’t truthfully say I enjoyed the fight much myself but I will say I feel the right fighter had their hand raised at the end. I’m not a fan of decisions due to the nature of scoring in MMA but I think we can all agree Wanatabe was the rightful winner but it’s not a fight I want to see happen again anytime soon.

 

In the Welterweight division BeeJay Penn took a quick but dominant victory over Yeerum by TKO showing the 39-year-old still doesn’t miss a beat, will BeeJay slow down soon?

Calvin Hobbs: oh it’s inevitable that it’ll happen at some point but it appears with that performance the answer is not just yet. Penn was solid and controlled the short fight from start to finish taking the re-match in even quicker time than he took the first. Penn must be in good standing with new management after such an impressive display, he really kicked the main card off well.

Rachel Barker: Yeah there really isn’t much to say on this one, BeeJay hit that slam with real power and left Yeerum out with that alone, some may have awarded that as KO because Yeerums eyes were in the back of his head. My only gripe with the fight is BeeJay didn’t get KO of the night but I can see why it was awarded to Saber – I’m guessing we’ll get to that soon though!

Killian and Apollyon went the full 15 minute decision in an entertaining fight that was dominated by Apollyon, will Killian be disappointed to have not won a round on any of the judges’ score cards?

Dan Milner: I really hope he is disappointed, if he isn’t then I’m not sure I want him here in Unleashed Chaos because I want fighter who if they by decision, then they are disappointed they haven’t finished their opponent. This is a cage where chaos should take place, not complete control and I know Killian will be looking to come back and bring a bit more next time. We haven’t got a fight lined up for him just yet but I’m sure we can find him a tough opposition. On the other side of things I think Apollyon was disappointed not to get the finish because at times he had Killian on the edge and was unlucky not to.

Calvin Hobbs: I’m going to echo Dan here, Apollyon did more than his part and put on a great show and – I know I’ve banged on about this all show but – Killian showed tons of heart to stay in the fight, just no umph to get the victory.

 

In Souto vs Saber we saw stand-up vs grappler, did it go the way you expected?

Rachel Barker: Very simply we saw a fight of two rounds there, the first dominated by Souto on the ground with a couple of great takedowns but something must’ve been said to Saber at the break in the corner that really got him fired because his defence was great in the second round and that set up his offence which was clinical in the end.

Calvin Hobbs: Exactly what Rachel said, the first round was solid from Souto with his ground work, the second round was fantastic by Saber and that showed in that he was able to get the finish.

Dan Milner: From a promoter and booker’s point of view I really need to see more from both men, I have to ask did Saber look great because Souto had gassed himself and not worked his cardio well enough going into the fight or was Saber that good? A few question I will have to wait till the next fight to find out.

 

Blaylock beats Hetfield by TKO in the first round to take his first victory for UCFL

Dan Milner: Baylock delivered, short and simple, he came with a plan and he followed it to the T. Every blow was intended to hurt Hetfield, he didn’t want to set it up, he just wanted to deliver and when you have that power and accuracy combined, it’s hard to stop.

Calvin Hobbs: Hetfield was solid, no doubt in that but what could he do today against a near perfect Dirk Blaylock. The man was calculating animal. Every strike, near perfect, very little energy was wasted and every shot had power behind it.

Rachel Barker: I think Blaylock showed tonight that he should be taken really seriously. He has great potential to become the face of the heavyweight division. He carries himself well, he puts on great performances inside the cage, he is modest and hard-working, outside of his shameless sponsorship plug he was really my cup of tea last Saturday night!

Calvin Hobbs: Can’t blame a man for making a couple extra dollars can we though Rachel,

Dan Milner: Well it’s not like he just randomly named dropped a company was it, he was saying his shout outs and of course the sponsors are there. He didn’t just go “Go to CHAOS Clothing for all your clothing as well as reliable laundry” did he?

Calvin Hobbs: Well that wasn’t predictable was it Dan….. *laughs*

For all UCFL review and more!

 

Moving on to the  co-main event, A one sided blood fest saw Beefheart beat Kasim Akande to a pulp, did anybody see this coming and how does this happen at such a high level of competition?

Rachel Barker: I thought Beefheart had a definite edge going into the fight and I did think he would come away winner but not in the brutal and dominant fashion he pulled off Saturday. It was one of the most one sided battles I’ve ever watched, let alone covered in my life. The cut that appeared was horrendous and could possibly not have been as bad as it appeared but it was gushing at the point he went down.

Calvin Hobbs: Now Rachel’s brought it up, did anybody notice that after the fight Akande complaining to the official about the stoppage, claiming he was OK to continue? I couldn’t believe was I was seeing. I know some refs who are saying the fight should’ve possibly been stopped due to the cut, let alone the knockdown.

Rachel Barker: Yes I did and I thought it was totally out of place, how could he have expected the official to let him continue their, but it’s the adrenaline that’s talking in that situation really. You know a stoppage is a good one when the corner puts up no protest.

Dan Milner: The stoppage was the right decision, no doubt and I’m grateful to the Tokyo Athletic Commission for providing us with such fantastic officials because there wasn’t a single poor call all weekend, I’ve just jinxed myself for the following week I know but hats off to the officials for their jobs this past weekend.

In terms of the match-up and how it turned out, I never saw this coming at all, I did think Akande was slightly out-matched but the Nigerian wanted to go and said he had what it takes so I gave it to him. As for what could’ve caused this turn out, it could’ve been anything, everybody has a poor performance, it’s just MMA is such a cut-throat sport that a bad day can result in looking like this. I wish Akande a serious recovery, I’ve heard the cut is going to take a significant amount of time to heal, approximately 15 days or so but I have heard no word – for better or worse – on if he has sustained any injuries other than that cut.

 

A True Fight of the Night broke out in the main-event when Pukki and Omega Weapon went to a close decision that was taken by Omega Weapon on all three judges’ score cards

Dan Milner: I just want to state before we really get into this, that this is truly fight of the night, it is the bench mark and when you’re putting a card together this is what you hope every fight provides in terms of entertainment value. A great performance from both men and I’d like to thank them both personally for the show they put on.

Rachel Barker: And a show is exactly what they put on, neither man held back and they both pushed the other to the limit. It was great to watch and fights like this is what began my interest in fighting in the first place! Pukki deserves great praise for his part in the fight but Omega Weapon was on top for today and controlled when he needed too.

Calvin Hobbs: What was a signal for me was the cut early on, you make your opponent bleed early on it lets everybody – including your opponent – know you are dangerous and capable of causing damage. The fight had it all though, the ground game was solid and in my opinion Pukki actually slightly edged that but Omega Weapon really was superior in the striking department and as Pukki’s face showed, Weapon did a lot of damage.

Rachel Barker: I find this situation odd because normally there should be a lot to talk about a main event that won Fight of the Night but when you break it down and analyse it their isn’t too much to discuss. Both fighters were happy to go anywhere in the cage on their back, feet or against the cage. Omega Weapon deserved the victory and both men definitely deserved the $5000 prize money for the Fight of the Night award.

 

Thank you for joining us tonight and I’d like to say a massive thank you to our three guests tonight for joining myself here on the UCFL review show. We hope to see you next week following UCFL #2: Bad Intentions and at the event itself live!

Welcome to the first edition of this week in Forbidden Violence, this week we take a look at FV #24’s top fights, the most anticipated fights in FV coming this week and the good news of Frank King remaining as owner of Forbidden Violence

 

FV #24 Ultimatum - Review

Live from Wandalay Bay on Saturday 21st June in front of 11,814 fans!

Forbidden Violence brought its latest show to the fans in great style giving all the 11,814 fans exactly what they want, tons of violence! The only thing this week’s show didn’t have was a submission but KO’s and TKO’s have come common place in the most violent organisation in the whole of Tycoon so this is not of huge shock to any of the fans.

 

Mikio Okita retained his Welterweight title against Manfred von Richthofen in the main event of the evening!

It wasn’t the show stealer we thought it was going to be but it was enough of a performance from Mikio Okita to retain his welterweight title against a valiant von Richthofen who managed to take him to the second round. Okita finished an tough performance after Manfred took the first round in everybodies eyes and left nothing to chance when he connected with a big right and he followed up with a series of shots von Richthofen could only turtle against before the official separated the pair and ended the fight.

 

The Co-main event saw fight of the night when Jamalski Ramirezovics took on Orville Redenbacher and came through as victor but the fight ended in controversial fashion

Nothing should take away from the all-out war both of these men engaged in last night but a shadow will hang over this fight preventing it from being remembered as one of the best of all time. The fight was ended by doctor stoppage – with a mere 32 seconds left to run – to the outrage of all the fans in attendance as well as both o the fighters and their corners. It is likely that Ramirezovics would’ve taken the fight if it had made it to the judges’ score cards but Redenbacher’s corner was infuriated it didn’t get the chance and with 32 seconds left of a blood filled swing for the fences fight like this once, anything could’ve happened!

 

Out of the other fights the finish from Bang Bang vs John Watson really stood out to us here at CPA and was well worth a mention as Bang Bang knocked John Watson out cold for his third Forbidden Violence win. Bang Bang didn’t only walk off with the victory but also $5k for winning a well-deserved KO of the night award. The finish came around the mid-point of the fight after Bang landed a solid straight left that left Watson wobbly footed, Bang wasn’t going to miss this opportunity and finished decisively with a great overhand right than sent Watson to the canvas

 

The Coming Week in FV

This Wednesday will see 10 top class match-ups from FV midweek #8 but the one that’s really caught our eye is the fight between former champion, Titus Arellius and Russian “The General” Vladimir Petrov

This bout really caught our eye as the former champion lost only his second fight in nine last time out and had been really impressive throughout each of those bouts. Along with that his opposition, “The General”, will be looking to kick start his own winning streak by making “Polan” his third victim in a row. Petrov has the fans excited with the 26-year-old looking like he has real potential to make a run for the FV belt at such a young age and a win on Wednesday wouldn’t go amiss in his attempts to grab owner Frank Kings attention.

 

FV #25 5x5 happens this weekend and it is impossible to choose a match-up I’m most excited about on that card as it’s the card of champions, near on all the champions will be competing at the event - only Lightweight title holder Johann Joensen won’t be competing while he waits for a the winner of Diaz vs Downtime. The biggest fight arguably of the week is the fight that’ll likely be the main event between the number 12 and number 26 Super Heavyweights in the world, Mohammed takes on Arvydas Sabonis for the Superheavyweight title. Both men come in to this one undefeated during their time in FV but that should change on Saturday night. This has an “of the Night” award written all over it and the fans will hope it delivers.

 

Also on the card is Gegard Mousasi © v Phil Ivey for the Light Heavyweight Title has the fans excited as Mousasi comes into undefeated in 5 fights, while Ivey is one of the most popular fighters on the card. Abel Speed vs Macadam Baird see’s one of our personal favourites in Abel Speed look to defend his belt and his undefeated streak in FV, Baird looks to do what he couldn’t do against Pehmytkudos and take a title victory. Last of the title fights is the Heavyweight title defence by Oleg Karev when he faces Billy Roberts, Roberts will be looking to stop the former Ascension warrior in his tracks as the Russian is unbeaten in three since arriving at FV.

 

A Quick Interview with the King

This past week Championship Press Association caught up quickly with Frank King and got the opportunity to ask him a couple of quick questions. When asked what direction he wanted the organisation to head in and what he’d say to new talents and managers considering Forbidden Violence as an option to join he had this to say;

 

“I think FV has done well to get where it is in the time I’ve run it. I just want to keep going and pleasing the mangers by offering fair fights. I don't let people pick opponents all fights are evaluated before and after. With this in place I hope we can only get stronger and rise to the top of the world and be one of the big orgs.

As for talent looking at FV all I'll say is sign one fighter come and join. After people sign their first fighter they normally stay and want to sign more. Fair fights, top bonuses and amazing write ups what's not to like!”

 

It seems great that Frank’s intentions are to push Forbidden Violence on and make it the next big organisation, but while also having his head firmly planted on his shoulders. King is also grateful for the existing staff and fighters he already has and he made a very firm point of making that clear, being quoted in saying; “Yeah a huge thank you to everybody signed for FV for their loyalty and commitment. Stay VIOLENT guys.” That says to me that while he wishes to grow the organisation out, he also wants to remember where he came from and stay loyal to the fighters that have served him so very well over the opening 6 months or so of this promising organisation.

 

That’s all we have time for in this edition of “This Week in Forbidden Violence” but make sure to stay alert for the special “Champions” edition next week following FV #25 5x5 for full championship bouts review and exclusive interviews with some of the top names in the game. Thanks again and we’ll hope see you live from the Sparta’s Palace this Saturday night!

UCFL #2: Bad Intentions

Pre-Event Press Conference

UCFL #2: Bad Intentions comes to you live from The Underground (capacity: 2,000), Tokyo on Friday 27th June.

 

Dan Milner: Welcome to the press conference for UCFL #2: Bad Intentions, thank you all for turning out and all questions will be answered. Please keep all questions respectful and professional. I’d also just like to thank the 6 gentle man with me, who too my left hand side I have Benjamin Grundy, Clinton Chaos and Mark Coleman. On my right I have their respective opponents Marcos Duarte, Birigiz Ignatiev and Kiel Flay. Go ahead guys, fire away with the questions.

 

Reporter #1: To Daniel, it’s a simple one to start with, how do you view the opening weekend and do you think this event will be an improvement on the first?

Daniel Milner: Ask the fans what they thought of it, they were going nuts flat out for both nights and I saw a lot of familiar faces in the crowd on the second night. I think while myself, DW and the fighters have passion for the organisation we’ll be successful. Rome wasn’t built in one day and neither will UCFL be but we’re definitely off to a great start.

 

Reporter #2: Daniel what do you see in the fight between Grundy and Duarte. What’s got you most excited?

Dan Milner: I’m going to hand that question straight over to the two men themselves, why should people be watching you guys?

Marcos Duarte*translated* People should be watching because I’m featuring in the fight, no other reason needed. Stoppage, Sub, Decision. It doesn’t matter the fans are going to turn up to watch me win.

Benjamin Grundy: Confidence is something I admire but Duarte is not confident, he is arrogant. I respect his game and what he is capable of; I’d be stupid not too. This is a fight you’re going to want to see because you’re going to get your money’s worth. I always provide a show. On a bit of a slide but UCFL is a new start for me, its game time.

Reporter #4: Benjamin you seem very down to earth, is this as a result of this recent slide during your short time in EVO or just what else has brought this on?

Benjamin Grundy: EVO was a disappointing time in my career, I cannot deny that but it’s not like Duarte is coming in on a win streak, he’s got his own slide going on too and I hope to make it a 5th for him. I draw confidence from my time in Synchronicity though, I can’t explain why I struggled in EVO but I’ve looked over my weaknesses and know I’ll be an improved man coming in. Just gotta cover my jaw *laughs*.

 

Reporter #3: Mark Coleman I’m coming to you, I just want to know how you feel facing a guy who’s only fought 16 professional fights in his career by the age of 33. I know age is just a number to yourself and your performances never cease to amaze but is there a time where facing competition younger and healthier will become more of a challenge? And to Kiel do you feel what I’ve just said gives you the edge?

Mark Coleman: Every opponent in each of my 75 of so bouts across my career has been a challenge why should or would Kiel or any other potential future match-ups be any different? I have always respected my opponents coming into a bout, with very rare exceptions, and even if I’ve taken a quick victory that’s been down to my ability and skill on the day, not their lack of. My health is great and it’s insulting for anybody to insinuate otherwise and age is just a number that some let mentally block them. I’m not old!

Keil Flay: I loved to follow Mark’s career when I was first getting into the game, he was great to watch and exciting. The man had it all, submissions, KO’s, you name it he had it, but that’s the past. I have to respect Mark but age catches up with everybody. To his fans, I’d advise looking away because this will be like watching Old Yeller. Mark I’m going to put you down.

Mark Coleman: The only thing you should put down kid is the pipe you’ve been smoking. Win or Lose I keep going and always will do, I’m a champion in heart and even now, I hope to be once again. A new org, brand new rankings following the event, why can’t I be at the top with an impressive win tonight!

Dan Milner: Okay gentlemen, settle down a little. I’d ask all reporters to direct your questions to the co-main eventers of UCFL #2: Bad Intentions.

 

Reporter #5: Dan what made you match-up Clinton Chaos and Birigiz Ignatiev and do you see it being one of the fights of the night?

Dan Milner: There’s no reason it shouldn’t be to be honest, it has the potential to be a great fight and that’s why me and DW put this fight together. The fans love Birigiz despite him barely speaking a word of Japanese or English and Chaos’ potential is something that just needs to be unlocked even this late on in his career. It’s the perfect match-up for both men, a big win can put them in serious contention for being in the first title bout, so you should definitely be watching this one.

Reporter #2: Clinton, what do you bring to the table to this fight and so late on do you agree with the hype around yourself. The hype that’s just been echoed by Dan Milner right their?

Clinton Chaos: Imagine if both me and Coleman won tonight? That’d blow you bloody reporters minds wouldn’t it? I’m here for the same damn reason as every other fighter on the card and in the organisation, to win and win decisively and leave no doubt in anybody’s mind who won and why.

Dan Milner: I completely support that statement from Clinton. We’ve offered contracts to people who want to win. I don’t sign “gate-holders” or “special attractions”. Some people may view some fights that way and the occasional fight may inevitably become a passing of the torch match but just like in every other fight in this organisation, they’ll have to take the victory. The first rankings come out on Sunday night/Monday morning following this event and every fighter that wins will have a fair shot in being high up on that board.

 

Dan Milner: I’ll have to cut it short their guys as we don’t have times, we now have to move onto the weigh-ins. The fighters will be available after the weigh-ins for one on one interview if they wish and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow live at the underground in Tokyo! Thank you for your time guys! As said before all rankings for the divisions will be posted on our website following the event.
