Thrul: I wasn't aggressive enough in the clinch and paid for it. It ended being the difference.

Yeah that was a rough blood bath last fight. I'm not sure that cuts has the same affect as injuries but I don't like my chances this week

It doesn't he will have full abilities, but if opponent draws blood one time it could be stopped if cut is bad. It is also easier to be cut if he already has one coming into match.

Big win for Thrul. The size advantage helped that's for sure. Had some power behind his strikes.

Flay shows he's still got it and dominates Grice, Boris succumbs to cuts from last week and Harris sustains a serious injury. Crazy week!

Rankings are updated.  I'll try to write my little review/preview before the end of the weekend. 

I'm currently trying to make some repairs to the emissions system on my truck and its taking all my free time.

Harris vs Uusisto

Hale vs Beast

Teimosa vs Thrul

Hall vs Crash

Nikitin vs Flay

Gutz vs Boris

DeVanzo vs Grice

 

I'll do a little review/next week preview when i get home tomorrow.  Sorry for missing last week, I changed every component of my truck's emissions system last week and still have a CEL.  I finally admitted defeat and took it to a mechanic.  I'm expecting a leak in the vacuum hoses or an electrical problem.

EPL 8 Week 4 Rundown

 

Week 4 saw the EPL fighters are embrace the grind.  All but one fight went to decision, the sole finisher was Jurmas Uusisto.  Uusisto dispatched the injured Bastien Harris in just 25 seconds with a head kick and follow up punches.  Harris will still be less than 100% when he matches up with Brandon Hale in the next round.

 

Hale lost a rather ugly fight to the surging Billy Beast.  Beast has bounced back from two disappointing performances to start the tournament to get himself right back into contention.  In round 4 he used his dangerous boxing game and slick defensive grappling to edge out Hale by decision.  Next week Beast takes on Dickie Crash.

 

Crash finally got a point in EPL competition by defeating Justin Hall in a close fight.  Crash edged out the striking and thwarted Hall's ground game enough to get the judges nod.  Hall remains winless in season 8 and needs to get back on track quickly if he wants to qualify for the playoffs.  He faces a tough veteran next week in Boris Gregorsvitsji.

 

Boris lost a tough fight to Cormac Gutz in week 4.  Gutz mixed up his game well and used volume striking and a well timed takedown to take the decision.  Gutz was knocked down twice and rocked, but the experienced veteran showed great heart and savvy to stay in the fight and survive to the bell.  Next round Gutz takes on front runner Artie DeVanzo.

 

DeVanzo had a disappointing performance in week 4.  Gary Grice clipped him early and dropped a rocked DeVanzo to the mat.  Artie survived that scare, but was unable to ever really get back into the fight after that point.  Grice outstruck him pretty decisively and defended himself well when DeVanzo managed to get the fight back to the ground.  Grice has been alternating wins and losses and will look to buck that trend next round vs Alexandr Nikitin.

 

Nikitin has dropped back to back fights after opening with consecutive victories.  He lost in round 4 to the veteran grappler, Tantalus Flay.  Flay showed no fear of the red belts dangerous submission grappling, taking Nikitin down early and smothering him.  Flay outstruck Nikitin when the fight was on the feet and was never in danger on the ground.  A pretty dominant performance for Flay who takes on Hilton Teimosa next round.

 

Teimosa used a strong clinch game to defeat Aznar Thrul in another close fight.  Thrul was winning the stand up early before moving into the clinch around the three minute mark.  The two combatants spent the rest of the fight grinding it out there with Teimosa getting the better of the dirty boxing fest.  Thrul will look to bounce back next round against Jurmas Uusisto.

 

Round 5 Fights to watch

DeVanzo vs Gutz.  Gutz can move into first place with a finish of the notoriously fragile DeVanzo.  

Nikitin vs Grice.  Both of these fighters have had mixed results so far.  A finish would go a long way towards getting out of the middle of the EPL pack.

Boris made it out of the fight w/ low enough injuries and cuts that it won't affect my game-planning this week which was really our only goal this round. A lucky KO would've been great and we obviously would've welcomed that outcome but not having to worry about every shot opening up his cut even more moving forward was our #1 priority in that fight.
