“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter!”
 
Hey everyone and welcome to our review of the first knockout round of the Mad Hatter tournament! Apologies are in order for the lack of a preview. It is my own mistake (I thought the tournament was later, but I lost track of dates over Easter), but I am looking forward to this review, and be sure to look out for our exclusive Preview for the Semi Finals coming soon….
 
 
FIGHT #1
Jonathan Banks vs Pat Verbeek
 
Our first fight of the event had one of the favourites for the tournament, Pat Verbeek, taking on a improving Jonathan Banks!
 
This was a good standup contest, but one where expertise ultimately became the deciding factor. Verbeek landed all 8 of his leg kicks, mixed in with his head punches, and that led to Banks not knowing what was coming and threw off his gameplan. Banks got rocked just after 2 minutes into the first round and then Verbeek finished it with a huge uppercut that actually had Banks gaining some airtime as Verbeek became the first fighter to book a Semi Final place!
 
Pat Verbeek def. Jonathan Banks via KO (Punch) at 2:39 in Round 1
 
 
FIGHT #2
Carl Jamison vs El Mo
 
Our next contest had another favourite Carl Jamison taking on El Mo!
 
This fight almost finished before it began. You could see El Mo didn’t look in the right frame of mind going in, and it all ended early. Jamison had 100% strike accuracy for this fight, landing 6 body punches with his 7 head punches, and that mixture allowed him to cut El Mo, and then land a big right hand which sent Mo down, but Jamison had to follow up with more strikes to ensure the job was finished!
 
Carl Jamison def. El Mo via TKO (Strikes) at 0:54 in Round 1
 
 
FIGHT #3
Dr Thork vs Phil Ewen
 
Our penultimate fight of the round pits Dr Thork against Phil Ewen!
 
This was a fight where Dr Thork could count on his Granite Chin to pull him through. Choosing not to go all out for the takedown, Thork looked to strike a little bit, as he suffered head punches, body punches and combos before he shot for the takedown around the 2 minute mark, gaining it and landing in side control. He immediately went looking for the Kimura, and was able to sink it in, forcing Ewen to tap out!
 
Dr Thork def. Phil Ewen via Submission (Kimura) at 2:56 in Round 1
 
 
FIGHT #4
Darren Kissel vs Mac Donalds
 
Our final fight of the round had two undefeated fighters compete to pop the cherry of the other persons loss colum with Darren Kissel fighting Mac Donalds.
 
Funny enough we mention popping cherries, because this is the kind of fight that would be rejected from a porn website due to excessive content. Kissel gained the clinch early in the first round, and there was sweet FA Donalds could do about it. Kissel controlled from the start to the end, landing almost all of his punches inside the clinch, and rocking Donalds late on in the round.
 
The second round was much the same, as Kissel clinched early again, but there would be no round end here. Pushing Donalds into the cage, Kissel flashed a swift right hand which dropped Donalds, and he followed in with more strikes to force the referee to stop the fight!
 
Darren Kissel def. Mac Donalds via TKO (Strikes) at 0:55 in Round 2
 
All the fighters remaining in the tournament could win the whole thing, so be sure to look out for our preview of the next round coming soon as we look at the match ups!

“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter!”

 

Hey everyone, and welcome to our Preview for the Semi Final fights in the Mad Hatter tournament! 4 fighters remain, and they are all competing for the main prize. Let’s get right down to it, and our first fight is….

 

 

1dc8213f004389dcd9591b3249fdacca.png

 

 

 

This fight is a rematch of the 3rd grouped round fight, and Verbeek will be looking to avenge his loss to Jamison!

 

Carl Jamison is a Sprawl and Brawl type of fighter. With all american recognition for his boxing, he has built up his wrestling to cope with any grapplers in this tournament, and he is currently 4-0 in his career. With 1 Fight of the Night and 1 KO of the Night honour, he is looking like the favourite for this tournament, and he is going to be a future star in MMA. He already has the psychological edge going into this fight, so whether he attempts any mind games will be interesting as he takes on a fellow FinnFighter yet again.

 

Pat Verbeek has only lost once so far, and that is to his current opponent. He has devastating KO Power, but seems very one dimensional as he hasn’t improved his primaries much since the beginning of the tournament. This might be an indicator that he is jacking up on his physicals, not a bad plan for a tournament, but it leaves him lacking in his offenses which could be exploited easily, particularly by someone of Jamison’s ability.

 

PREDICTION: I backed Verbeek in the last fight when there wasn’t much to separate them, but I have Jamison doing the job once more and coming out victorious, maybe even with a KO this time! Carl Jamison to win via (T)KO in Round 3.

 

 

69c0c771171bf9aa6a4b3236e0645a15.png

 

 

 

 

Our other Semi Final has 2 undefeated fighters squaring off as Darren Kiddel takes on Dr Thork!

 

Darren Kissel demonstrates clinch fighting at it’s finest! With 4 (T)KO wins from 4 fights, he has demonstrated great KO power without really being caused any problems. Great wrestling with ever improving boxing is a combination he has really made his own, and he will be confident in using it to reach the finals of the tournament. He fights a strong grappler in this fight, so it will be interesting to see if he will look to avoid getting into a grappling battle in the clinch and strike from the outside, or if he is confident enough to dominate from the clinch.

 

Dr Thork is the best grappler in the entire tournament, something that an undefeated 5-0 record shows, as he has won every fight via Submission! All of his fights in this tournament have ended either via Kimura or RNC. He is like an anaconda when it comes to grappling, as he smothers his opponents and asserts his dominance, often leaving his opponents helpless to his superior knowledge of grappling. He faces a tough challenge here, but if he can get it to the ground, he should have little trouble.

 

PREDICTION: In my opinion, I think Kissel should look to avoid the clinch in order to prevent Thork from pulling guard. Picking his opponent off from range is his best chance, and he should be confident in his superior wrestling keeping the fight standing while his strikes land. The only issue is, it only takes one takedown, and I think Thork will wrap it up quickly if it does hit the ground. Darren Kissel to win via (T)KO in Round 1.

That’s it for our Preview of the Semi Final match ups. Be sure to tune in for the results where we find out the 2 finalists for the main prize, and we can see if any of the fighters fall into their insanity!

A classical striker vs grappler match up. Both guys have granite chins but I predict Jamison's chin wont be tested too much. :) Thork will spam takedowns untill he gets one and after that if Jamison can survive he takes the fight. If not, well then he gets subbed obviously (and Thork has finished everyone so he gets a cool 1mil on top of everything else). :D

 

GL in the finale buddy!

“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter!”

 

Ladies and gentlemen. Here is the moment Insanity fans around the world have been waiting for. LIVE! From the…wait, doesn’t someone already talk like this? Anyway, this event is being held in the Hard Knock’s arena in Los Angeles! These two fighters have beaten off the competition in the tournament, and both hold flawless records. Both hail from the USA, and come from opposite sides of the country, and they will be looking to prove that they are not only the best in the Mad Hatter tournament, but that they are the best in the whole US of A. Without further ado, let’s get right down to the nitty gritty right here!


9e9a85f116ed8d8c776dfa69b4643c5e.png

 

Two undefeated fighters collide here in the finals as Carl “Smooth” Jamison takes on Dr “Creepy” Thork in a classic Striker vs Grappler contest!

 

Carl “Smooth” Jamison is a highly touted boxing prospect who made the transition into MMA upon hearing of this tournament. Having built up his wrestling along the way, he has shown his ability to Sprawl and Brawl and has racked up 5 consecutive victories, winning 2 of them via (T)KO. Displaying he himself to have a Granite Chin, he is a tough challenge for any striker to knock out. However, in this fight, he won’t be going up against a striker, instead he will be going up against the most dangerous grappler in the tournament, and his Granite Chin won’t be saving him there. Can Jamison navigate his way to a victory? Or will his inferior grappling be his downfall?

 

Dr “Creepy” Thork is an excellent grappler who has won many BJJ titles in White Belt and Blue Belt categories. Upon earning his Purple Belt, he decided to make a switch like Jamison to MMA. He has been developing his Boxing and Wrestling since in order to round out his game, but he is still known for his devastating submissions, the kind that has left all of his opponents unconscious in the middle of the cage. Like Jamison, Thork also has a Granite Chin, and I expect we will see his chin be tested more than Jamisons. Can Thork manage to lock in a takedown before Jamison’s striking overwhelms him? Or will it be too much for him to handle and have him be sent to the canvas unwillingly?

 

Be sure to tune in for the Mad Hatter finals, and be sure to keep a lookout for the upcoming tournament, also from Insanity, The Mad Cash Tournament! This will feature some of the brightest 155 and 185 prospects in the world, and is something you should definitely keep an eye on!

 

But for the current situation, who will take home the big prize? Carl “Smooth” Jamison? or Dr “Creepy” Thork?

 

Only the truly mad will be able to succeed in this finals...

Here is a little video I did a while back, it was just something extra and contains most info as seen in GBK's preview for the finale match.

 

 

Also I am curious to see who will become the #3 in this tournament with the fight off Darren Kissel v Pat Verbeek

 

Looks to me that fight will be a brawl!

Mayhem is holding Plower round the back of the neck and unloading with elbows! Boom, boom, boom! 3 big elbows land right to the bridge of the nose and Plower goes down! Oh, his nose is a mess! I'm not sure he's going to beat the count... 4,5,6,7,8,9,10. He's done! Mayhem takes it and Plower is going to the hospital to get that nose checked out!

Congratulations to our very first Mad Hatter!

Carl "Smooth" Jamison

 

Carl started out his journey in the Mad Hatter tournament by facing Random Hajile, a wrestler whom he battled with for 3 full rounds and ending up getting the Unanimous Decision.  In the next fight that was randomly drafted for him, he faced Armen Hammer, a striker who just came of a win himself. Carl won this fight via TKO in the first round. In his 3rd fight that was randomly drafted for him, he took on Pat Verbeek, who some considered to be a favourite in the tournament. Carl however showed his talents, and showed his dominance by out striking the dangerous Verbeek and getting another Unanimous Decision win. By this time we were moving into the brackets, and Carl was choosen to face El Mo first. A fighter who had two quick TKO wins so far, but also had recently lost the same way. Carl knew what to against this fighter, and was able to secure the win under a minute with another TKO victory on his name.  Next up in the brackets, Carl was taking on Pat Verbeek once again! Verbeek just came of a KO victory and showed the world he was not done just yet. However, Carl disagreed with that , and with a different approach this time he was once again able to score a Unanimous Decision win.  Carl made it to the finals, where he would fight an elite grappler in Dr Thork. Dr Thork has been winning every fight by way of submission in the very first round of all his Mad Hatter fights, and this would truly be a test of willpower.  The entire first round was exactly where Carl wanted his fight, standing up and landing strikes. In the second round it seemed Dr Thork was going to get his way, having the fight on the ground, but to many surprise to all of us, Carl was able to do very well himself, scoring some reversals and making sure all the submissions attempts were simply a waste of energy for Dr Thork.  In round thre we saw a takedown by Thork early on, but Carl played it smart and got a referee standup and was able to keep the fight standing for the remainder of the round. In the fourth round, another takedown and a quick referee standup to follow it. Carl was back on his feet scoring points, but a late takedown was successful for Dr Thork and the round ended on the ground. In round five, fatigue set in and Dr Thork was able to get an takedown seconds into the round. Many sub attempts followed throughout the round, and Dr Thork was scoring the points here. Late in the round, a referee standup was in effect but there was too little time for Carl to do anything with it. In the end, Carl’s performance throughout the fight was more than enough to secure him a Unanimous Decision win (46-49, 47-48, 46-49). With this, Carl Jamison became the Mad Hatter Tournament winner!

 

-----------------

1st place; Carl Jamison

2nd place; Dr Thork

3rd place; Pat Verbeek

---------------------------

 

Congratulations on all for winning the price money and other awards (which I shall take care of after this post)

Thank you all for participating and making this tournament as great as it was, I really enjoyed seeing the evoluation of fighters and it was great dealing with all of you managers.

 

I will set up the voting for the Off the Tournament awards later, and also find out the quickest sub/ko wins, and who had most finishes :)
