#1R In first round Ben was dominated. Kotrc was trying to win this fight on the ground but Johnson was faster and mostly escaped from the bad possitions. The ground game was very simillar from this two fighters. Johnson was much more active in the standing game, scored a few Times in the clinch.

#2R That round was very simillar because of the gameplan (ground game) of Petr. He was trying to submit his oponent but Johnson escaped from the bad position quite fast. After short time in standing game, Petr took his oponent down and loose the arm. Johnson won by Armbar!

Batoru FC 2

1536770155LOGO1.png

Welcome to Hayashi's Lounge in beautiful Tokyo, Japan for the 2nd event of the Batoru Fighting Championship. The 1st event at the Tokyo Underground almost sold out and hit at just above 115 for the event rating. All of the 1st events fights ended without any going to a decision, which makes it very exciting for the fans and gets the word spread around that Batoru puts on great entertainment! For Batoru FC 2, my colleague Mike Doldberg and I will do a breakdown analysis and prediction for the top 5 fights on the card. We start from the top so lets get this started!

 

265 Lbs Main Event

 

Johnny "Cyborg" Twborg (268753) vs. Charles Kamen (232888)

 

We have an excellent fight here for the main event of Batoru FC 2. A heavyweight extravaganza of champions. This is the 1st ever meeting between the two and both are coming into this fight on winning streaks. Kamen (20-5) is on an impressive 14 fight win streak while Twborg (15-6) is 12-1 is his last 13 fights with his current streak at 3. Both are former champions as Twborg was a champion at Kamikaze while Kamen has 4 different titles won from organizations such as Lupe, Kamikaze, Duel, and WFC.  Now that we have the career basics, lets look at scouting.

This will be Kamen's 1st fight since July of this year and he is 39 years old, this could affect his performance. Kamen also has an impressive 90% KO/TKO ratio where he mainly is a stand up fighter rarely getting onto the ground. He hasn't been known to throw kicks, and now at 39 years of age I doubt he will start. He will strike outside, but also doesn't mind dirty boxing as well. Twborg is also a striker, but really likes the clinch game and pressing up against the cage. He has also mixed up some kicks into his game plans in the past, so you never know when that head kick could sail into an unprotected temple. Twborg's biggest hype win to date is his 2017 win over GAMMA's David "Tuaman " Tua (274202). 

This fight will not go to ground and I suspect that a complete victory will be at hand.

 

Prediction: Twborg by TKO

 

205 Lbs

 

Frank "The Tank" Lloyd (323400) vs. Dirtee "Bad Boy" Donderson (317231)

 

For the co-main event we have a couple proven veterans looking for a fresh start here at Batoru FC. We have got a junkyard specialist and an all around bad boy fighter. Close in size and reach, no real advantage for either in that category. Both fighters are anxious to show the crowd an entertaining fight. Lets look at the breakdown.

Lloyd (12-5) has won 10 fights by KO/TKO in his career and recently signed from now defunct CCF where he went 3-1. Arriving back into the fight scene from managing junkyard underground fights with his pitbull kool. He is very strong, has a good wrestling base and an excellent muay thai skill set used to batter his opponents. He throws very few kicks and looks to get back up when on the ground. Known as "The Tank" Lloyd wants to run over the "Bad Boy". Dirtee "Bad Boy" Donderson is a few years older than Lloyd (11-7) also looks to put himself in a good position by taking out Tank. He was an Island creation that had ups and downs in his career. With gaps in training and fighting this year he still possess lethal high kicks, great cardio, and has some reinvested interest in changing up his style from old management. He uses his legs well and can strike in all levels at his opponents.  This fight looks to be a good test for both opponents and for fans alike. This is a tough one to call.

 

Prediction: Lloyd by KO

 

170 Lbs 

 

Rocco "The Finisher" Dangerfield (317246) vs. Leszek Sobota (300883)

 

Rocco ( 19-8) is a former 7 time world champion, with 6 of those coming from the Island Title. With 17 wins by KO/TKO at almost 90% of his wins lets the hands fly, but he has more in his game with some kicks and ground game peppering about. Sobota (8-3) doesn't have the amount of experience as the older Rocco, but Sobota made an extremely skilled Settakian Fett (303516) submit to strikes and won by TKO as biggest win of his career back in 2015. Sobota has bounced around since fighting in notable promotions from the likes of Dare and Knock Out FC. 

Rocco possess a granite chin and Sobota has KO power, but something is gotta give in this match up. Experience, including Championship experience is a great advantage for Rocco. He also has a more polished bjj game over Sobota as he has a purple belt. Sobota has been training recently as Hell Academy Ground Academy but he is still on his 4th stripe on his white belt and he hasn't rested up well before this fight, so interesting things could occur if this ends up on the ground.

 

Prediction: Dangerfield by Submission ( Americana )

 

155 Lbs

 

Ambrose "The Mule" Chisholm (236478) vs. Lu Wai Ping (274314)

 

Chisholm (24-13-1) hasn't fought since July of this year and at 38 years old, this is what older people say the twilight of his career. But he is not done quite yet and with great experience and good wrestling knowledge loves to fight in the clinch. Nicknamed "The Mule" as he likes to damage opponents with kicks to soften them for the final assault is what seems to be his forte. Chisholm also has 4 submission losses and will also go the distance in some fights where his only choice to win is by using his strong clinch to control his opponents. Too many decisions, but not making one could cost him a title shot if he was to fall to Ping (10-13). Ping's record doesn't do him justice as all mma fighters are dangerous wether they are 10-10 or 20-0 but because of bjj he is ready to go every morning. Boosting morale and mood can only get you so as Ping would like nothing more than to work on Chisholm with his own brand of Kicks and combinations and then if the opportunity presents itself make him submit to defeat. 

 

Prediction: Ping by Submission (Kneebar)

 

155 Lbs

 

"Crazy" Tim Slater (325003) vs. Lodzov Hugs (320962)

 

Last main card fight as we have as "Crazy" Slater (5-2) who hasn't been very active in a long time takes on Lodzov Hugs (8-11) .  Both fighters have almost identical size and shape, as both are young bucks looking to drive the other out of their division.  Hugs has Slater outdone in all 4 primary skills so this will be a great advantage for him to carefully choose his plan of execution as he is the primary favorite. Hugs needs to rebound quickly as he is currently witnessing his worst losing streak at 5. Lets get deeper.

Slater's game revolves around a few kicks, maybe a little time on the ground, but ultimately his granite chin that can only go so far with defense as his strengths. Slater has won by KO, Sub, and Decisions, some say his training his suspect at best as he trains at his best friends garage gym. Hugs likes to hug! Noooo really? His name is his game as he will use his striking to set up those takedowns where he grapples and strikes trying to smash his opponent into a tko. He has not yet won by any submissions, but his chances only get better if he can control the fight where he wants.

 

Prediction: Slater by ground n pound TKO

 

 

 

There you have it ! Batoru FC 2 has some interesting main card fights that some are quite hard to predict. The main fight between Twborg and Kamen should be a great headliner to make the winner a serious contender for a challenger to fight for a belt, and who could forget the junkyard tank fighting the Dirtee Bad Boy as the co-main that is sure to bring the crowd on their feet!

Batoru FC 3

(914522)

1536770155LOGO1.png

HARD KNOCKS CASINO

TOKYO, JAPAN

NOV 24, 2018

 

 

Good evening everyone and welcome to the land of the rising sun! Batoru Fighting Championships brings you their 3rd installment here in Tokyo, as they hope those hardcore fans are ready for another exciting nights of cage fighting. The last event had six stoppages as the event rating rose ten percent higher, and Johnny Twborg continued his streak with a TKO victory over Charles Kamen in the main event. With another group of veteran and aspiring challengers on the card lets look at the top five fights of the evening!

 

Main Event 145 Lbs

Alejandro "Osito" Sepulveda (274884) vs. "Reaper" Lachlan Cassidy (270091)

 

A five rounder here with two tough ass veterans looking to show why they deserve a title fight with a statement win here tonight. Osito (22-15-2) a former MMA Helsinki Champion has been in past championship mode, but as of late has hit a bit of a slump and looks to rebound here at Batoru FC. He is a fighter that has world class thai fighing abilities where he is also 2-1 as a KT fighter, but he also has excellent grappling to support the stand up for those mma fights on the ground. He has 9 KO's and 9 submissions along with 4 wins by decision, there is no where he can't fight and if his gameplan is solid and he is focused he can begin a new streak with his elite boxing and black belt around his waist. He will have to do so against veteran Cassidy (19-6) who also was a champion with MMA Helsinki, but never crossed paths with Sepulveda before. Cassidy went on a 3 fight losing streak where he changed management and since the change he is 1-0 and signed with Batoru FC. Cassidy is right up there with abilities in the stand up and on the ground, just slightly behind his opponent. He tendencies show that he wants more of a stand up fight as 14 of his wins are by TKO/KO. Cassidy will need to ready to defend takedowns from his well versed opponent who may want to exploit his advanced jiu jitsu skills.

 

Prediction: Sepulveda by Sub, triangle

 

285+ Lbs

 

Brandon "Hippopotamus" Bowen (319186) vs. Sam "Cannonball" Bellafontane (335382)

 

Bowen (4-4) is hungry for a finish in this fight and get his 5th win of his career. He owns all 4 wins by KO/TKO and with excellent boxing with a big ass right hand he can knock a hole in a brick wall, especially for a super duper cheese deluxe bacon burger and fries! He has cut back a little to prepare his cardio for the fight, so you know afterwards he will splurge himself to food. Now, just because he is 300 lbs doesn't mean he can do jiu jitsu, they have what is called big man jiu jitsu, and its about using your weight as an advantage and strength to brutalize your opponent into a submission. Brandon has yet to show off these abilities to finish a fight, but you never know because his opponent Bellafontane (3-5) uses his strikes to set up takedowns, and being the shorty, uglier, fatty he will use that leverage to get up under his opponents and smother them on the ground into ground n pound tko. So, Brandon will want to stay on his feet to stop the takedowns as that is Bellafontane's bread and peanut butter, but watch out he does have heavy hands as well. If the fight does go down, look for Brando Bowen to show us some jiu jitsu and we may even see some crazy submission.

 

Prediction: Bowen by KO, uppercut super sized

 

 

185 Lbs

 

Rumpel Stiltskin (310214) vs. Ziyardi Batukayev (329120)

 

The main event features an two brawlers with similar basic ideas of fighting, but two different approaches with their style. Both fighters are brawlers with better than your stock of the mill blue belt blues in jiu jitsu. Instead you have some high level grappling experience as both fighters have a combined submission wins of 12. Lets try to examine a little more closer.

Stiltskin (8-0) has a one track mind, and its no trick. Stiltskin a former EFL Champion wants you down and he will do what he needs to do to make you go there. As it has been his only way to win, all eight wins have come by submissions. He has an excellent gas tank and has some punch if he ever intends to throw one. He is shorter and stockier than Batukayev, which gives him a takedown advantage as long has his opponent doesn't have the better use of footwork and escapes. Batukayev (5-2) has lots of amateur experience, and he too likes the ground game, with four of his five wins have come by submissions. What he does differently is that he is more of a versatile fighter who likes to include different attacks into his game plan. Looking back on his past fights, he is a brawler that will throw kicks at you where most brawlers don't. He fights in clinch, in boxing, and in muay thai. Will this be enough to give him a slight edge? 

 

Prediction: Stiltskin by Sub, armbar

 

Co-Main Event

 

185 Lbs

 

Christopher "Mr. Takedown" Blackburn (337374) vs. Theophile Bonnet (329124)

 

Blackburn (1-0) easily took care of the opposition as his nickname "Mr. Takedown" spoken true. He took his opponent down and in a manner of a few ground and pound flurries with a monster elbow and that was all she wrote as the referee intervened to save the opponent from further destruction. A younger fighter at 19 years of age, he will come in against an older Bonnet (2-1-1) who has some more experience but also cuts like he is a paper man is looking for a grinding, deeper fight as all his fights have gone the distance. Blackburn will need to be careful about the take downs, because Bonnet has some decent wrestling and a blue belt in jiu jitsu as well. Don't count anyone out! Bonnet will look to keep this fight on the feet, and if he succeeds then it could be a hard lesson to learn from the younger Blackburn.

 

Prediction: Bonnet by Dec

 

145 Lbs

 

Yusuke "The Ninja" Yamanashi (339389) vs. Perdue "The Spider" Willshire (323383)

 

Yamanashi (1-1) defeated Malkova by submission in his Batoru FC debut. He has respectable boxing and also working hard to advance his two stripe blue belt in jiu jitsu.  Both fighters compliment each other as they are almost identical in size, but Perdue (3-10) has definitely not had the luck and some say the proper skill to compete at the highest levels.

Yamanasi likes to set up his takedowns with strikes, or combination attempts used not exactly to land flush, but to make his opponent cover and hide in order to get the takedown. Perdue, has lost seven of his past eight fights and this fight makes it no easier. Perdue is a counter fighter that may need to become more aggressive, because he has the KO power to displace his opponents head. Perdue or "The Spider" has had issues with taking some punishment on the chin and he must protect himself better in this fight to have a strong chance to bite the Ninja.

 

Prediction: Yamanishi by KO

 

170 Lbs

 

Jesus Maria "Leon" Zeledon Castro (328199) vs. Wen Chou (329121)
 
A respected leader of the Lions, Jesus Maria "Leon" Zeledon Castro is the man of many names.  "Leon" (0-1) is making his second fight against a veteran Chou. He lost his first fight by a three round decision and he has shaken that fight off and used it to fuel his lion heart to face Chou. Chou (1-2-1) fights with a high motor and looks to be very unorthodox and wild. Leon has exceptional wrestling and a purple belt, while Chou still holds a white belt and no strong grappling training leading up to this fight, I wonder what his fight camp was doing? With not much background on either, is it not obvious to see that Leon will look to immediately take down Chou and ground his motor to run in the direction of his choosing. Chou will look to keep the fight up on the feet, but will ultimately have a hard time of doing that as long as he can fend off those countless takedowns by Leon.
 
Prediction: Castro by Submission, Keylock
 
 
135 Lbs
 
Frank "Frankson" Irrozios (299527) vs. Petr "The Bee" Kotrc (318479)
 
Irrozios is a boxer and he owns 14 KO's out of his 16 wins. Kotrc is jack of all trades, with some standard training in all fields, but not enough to stop a talented fighter who can easily defend. Irrozios (16-11) loves to let those hands fly and will go to the body and sync up combinations when he thinks he's got them almost gone. His killer instinct proves to be his downfall at times when exchanging he forgets to cover himself and leaves his chin or temple out there to be countered with a nasty punch. Irrozios shoud protect better and not be as aggressive. With over 30 total fights, he has the experience that should guide him when adversity confronts him inside the cage. Kotrc, six years younger that Irrozios has tremendous knockout power, but that is for when he gets close enough to actually land it first. "The Bee" (4-8) has a huge size advantage over Irrozios, and he must use good agility and jab his way to set up his takedown which seems to be where he has the best advantage because he has five KO losses and if he stands with Irrozios, he will have number six.
 
Prediction: Irrozios by KO
 
 
 
There you have it folks, Batoru Fighting Championship 3 looks to showcase these talented fighters to Tokyo as entertaining warriors! Looking to continue building up their hype and brand and building a future star from within the land of the rising sun!

Batoru FC 4 (915355)

1536770155LOGO1.png

Hard Knocks Casino

Tokyo, Japan

December 8, 2018

 

 

Hello all and welcome to Tokyo, Japan where at the Hard Knocks Casino there will be some great mixed martial arts action that should help the crowd recover from a long work week and where some will drink beer, and some will take in sake to relax themselves. We have a very interesting card tonight, as my colleague and i will break down each of the top 5 fights on the card and do our best to pick the winners.

 

Main Event 170 LBS

 

Tuccio "Salchichón" Turturro (329365) vs. Rocco "The Finisher" Dangerfield (317246)

 

We have a 5 round fight between two of the top fighters of BFC welterweight division. Dangerfield (20-8) won his debut by decision at BFC 2, that stopped a 3 fight skid. Dangerfield has a granite chin, good wrestling, and is deadly with his counter striking. Not a necessarily dangerous striker, he has pin point accuracy that can cause a lot of damage and throw his opponent off his game before Dangerfield takes the fight down to his realm where he has won most of his fights by ground n pound. Although he is a tough wrestler with heavy punches on the ground, he does have a purple belt in bjj and could possibly use that when his opponent uses good defense. Turturro (15-1) is making his BFC debut in a return fight where he last fought on October 10th. He has a new manager, and outstanding record, good wrestler, and a cardio monster so it will be interesting to see how his new manager game plans for him. Turturro has never fought in a championship title fight despite his record. He will be making a strong case for a possible future title fight if he is able to succeed. Turturro's advantage is strong wrestling and no doubt his black belt in jiu jitsu where he has won 13 fights by submission.

 

Prediction: Dangerfield by TKO

 

Super Heavyweights

 

Big Mike (317198) vs. Lucio Francisco "Jurupari" Carmo (290209)

 

We have two different style fighters here, one is a striker, the other is a grappler. The common denominator is that these are some huge dudes, and could be a quick fight either way. Mike (11-7) was a former champion from the Island, but that has been awhile ago as he has struggled to find sustained success on the mainland. He has great cardio for his size, excellent muay thai, and a decent wrestling base. Mike has lived by the stand up fighting game, where he dishes it as much as he takes it, which has been a problem. Mike will once again try to find the recipe for success as he is fighting in his 5th promotion in his last 8 fights. Carmo (7-7) is a former Abu Dhabi Grappling Champion, but his grappling success has not translated into tycoon world grappling tournaments so well. As an mma fighter, he has 4 sub wins of his 7 total and has shown excellent boxing skills which he will need in facing mike in this match up. Carmo had been on a skid of late and recently picked up a win by heel hook in his last fight and will be looking to go on a streak by defeating mike on Saturday night. Carmo's black belt vs Mike's blue will be the biggest difference between them. If Mike can stay upright and get away from being dragged down, he could out strike Carmo.

 

Prediction: Carmo by Sub, Armbar

 

145 LBS

 

Gustav "The Showstopper" Berglund (315297) vs. "Crazy" Tim Slater (325003)

 

Berglund (5-3) lost his BFC debut and consecutive fights to Mustafa "Waggers" Wagdy (303264) by the same results as he couldn't shake off the rear naked chokes. Berglund will need to focus on Slater and forget his 2 fight losses to the departed Wagdy. Berglund has great cardio, a purple belt in bjj, and excellent boxing skills where he has won all 5 fights from KO/TKO. Berglund has tried to go to the ground on a few occasions where he lost out on the grappling and that has led to his 3 submission losses. Berglund will need to evaluate his game plan and use his boxing and his longer reach in this fight to keep Slater from taking him down.

Slater (6-2) is 2 years younger that his opponent and has a shorter reach and slightly smaller, but I believe he will be the more dangerous fighter, because of his versatility. Slater has won 2 fights each by KO/SUB/DEC and his 2 losses are from KO's. He has a granite chin and great wrestling. Berglund's advantage is his boxing, so I can guess that Slater will want to close the distance get the fight down where he can either get a grinding victory or win by submission.

 

Prediction: Slater by Submission, Kimura

 

265 LBS

 

Matti Meikalainen (201870) vs. Samson Fortier (327697)

 

Two big heavyweights, both at different points in their careers as Matti is an aging veteran still holding out some hope that the hands of time continue his success as he looks for his 5th straight victory at 43 years old. Matti (29-18) boasts of his heavy heads and lethal high kicks that have helped him earn 26 KO/TKO victories in his career. He also has a great wrestling base to keep the fight exactly where you would guess it, not on the ground. With some championship experience, the long time veteran is looking to make a final push for a title with BFC. He will have to do so against 21 year old prospect Fortier. Fortier is making his 1st mma fight tonight and has a huge test ahead of him. Samson Fortier, the younger brother of Hercules will have the height, reach, and weight advantage against Matti and will look to use his younger physical skills to out fight Matti and overwhelm him. Some reports that Fortier sometimes wins in sparring with his brother, so if he can hang with Hercules he should have some great tools at his disposal. With the huge age, experience, and size differences it will be a very interesting fight that could see the birth of a future champion prospect or solidify the winding path of the Finnish warrior.

 

Prediction: Fortier by KO, faster and more athletic lands with heat

 

155 LBS

 

"Where Yo Girl" Bo Angliese (262778) vs. Lu Wai Ping (274314)

 

Both fighters here are fighting for the right to stop a losing streak. Both in their early 30's, it may be close to the end for both if they cannot turn it around. One thing is for certain, one will win and if no one wins because of a draw then they should do a sudden death victory. Angliese (27-17-2) is a good wrestler with world class boxing. He is a stand up fighter and has won 11 by KO. Although he has displayed this talent on many occasions, sometimes he has been reluctant to pull the trigger more and most of his defeats have come from decision losses. Angliese displays some kicks and combinations and is not afraid to fight close quarters but will need to avoid close quarters and clinches against Ping. Ping (10-14) seems to have fallen on some hard luck as he has lost 5 of his last 7 and cannot seem to get those decision nods in his favor. Ping will need to develop a game plan A and B and will need to be aggressive if he wants to get the win. Ping has elite level wrestling and a black belt, but has not show in the past that he wants to win this way, he will need to rethink this strategy as it allows him the best chance to defeat a striker in Angliese.

 

Prediction: Angliese by TKO

 

There you have it folks! Another Batoru Fighting Championship event that has a grand mix of styles, body sizes, and colorful attitudes that will be sure to get the crowd in a roar. Make sure you save me a seat folks!

Batoru FC 5  (915940)

1544821036tuuuuuuuo.png

 

Tokyo, Japan

Dec 22, 2018

 

Welcome to the land of the Rising Sun and the the lords of samurai's. Batoru FC returns with an action packed show headlined by two promising warriors ready to display to the world who is best. My colleague Mike Doldberg and I will look at the top 5 fights of the card and do an analysis break down to determine who we predict for each. 

 

Main Event

155 Lbs

 

Frank "Baummensch" Wildhauser (329874)  vs.  Danny "The Conqueror" Duff (314349)

 

The main event will be 5x5 min rounds of fantastic bamtastic as Wildhauser will take on Duff. Wildhauser (14-4) is a good wrestler that likes to take limbs when he fights as he has 9 wins by submission and has several win streaks during his career. Wildhauser was a semi finalist on the end of the Island Season Tournament before he came to the mainland and at 28 years old he looks to continue his style to win over a new audience. Wildhauser interestingly has never had a title fight or has even won a fight of the night award at all, so this fight should serve as that fight to propel him to a possible title shot or award if he is to win with his brown belt ability. Duff (7-5) is an excellent boxer that sports his granite chin as he sticks it out before each fight and slaps it showing his opponents where to hit him. Duff is currently on a 3 fight win streak and unusually fighting for a 3rd time in the same promotion for the first time in his career. Duff likes to stay on his feet as he will fight with distance or even in the clinch where his hands do some major damage. If he does end up on the ground, he sports a neon purple belt to show he can hang. Both fighters are around the same size and weight before the fight, and their is no real advantage either way there. Wildhauser will need to get the fight to the ground quick, and Duff will need to keep it standing. The key is , who can stay where the longest. Duff has pinpoint accuracy and will need to be ready to sprawl if he wants to defeat Wildhauser.

Petey "The Polar Bear" Bartlett (317740)  vs.  Lopeared Galute (304621)

 

Big boys in the cage as Bartlett fights Galute. Bartlett (20-4) definitely owns the experience factor here as he has 21 more fights than his opponent. Bartlett is a good wrestler with a granite chin and has excellent boxing skills. He also towers above Galute and has an very big reach advantage, which will play a huge part of the game plan. Bartlett was a former 7 time world heavyweight champion at the Island Title. He is currently riding a 2 fight win streak and will be looking to take out anyone that stands in his way. Galute (3-0) has recently resurfaced from the list of inactives as he hadn't fought in over a year. The 27 year old has a long way to go as he was earlier a kickboxer with a 5-2 record but decided that mma would be what he needed to focus on. Galute made the transition well winning all of his mma fights until he left the hiatus. Galute has found a new manager and a new life of the sport and will be no doubt facing one of his biggest fights of his life with the seasoned former champion. Galute is a good wrestler with excellent muay thai and a granite top chin that will be tested. He fights well in stand up and in the clinch, so I would expect the game plan will be to stand and trade, and if he isn't too rusty he could find the source of his past glory.

 

Prediction: Bartlett by TKO

Charles Kamen (232888)  vs.  Huberto Arnaboldi (268808)

 

Another huge exciting match up will see 2 proven warriors clash as Kamen will take on Arnaboldi. Kamen (20-6) will be making his sophmore fight as he lost his debut and snapped a 14 fight win streak against Johnny Twborg. Kamen will look to start his new win column with his degrading but still faster than yours skills, excellent footwork and his top notch world class boxing. Kamen at 39 may be on the downside of his career, but he still has the hunger. He will need to use his ability to keep the fight standing where he has the better advantage. He likes to throw all kinds of strikes and combinations, minus the kicks, and if he gets caught up in the clinch watch out for those knees! Arnaboldi (15-8) was on a 5 fight win streak when he lost his BFC debut against Bartlett. He is heavy handed although more wild and less orthodox in striking, he also boasts a great all around wrestling game with a cherry on top with a lethal high kick that can send people to the moon if there not careful. Arnaboldi likes to stand up and strike, although it looks as if he needs to add more kicks into his strategies as to not be too predictable and with his lethal high kicks skills will only benefit himself with the change. Arnaboldi does have a brown belt in brazilian jiu jitsu and has one submission win, he will have a serious advantage there as Kamen is still only a blue belt skill wise and has never really been tested on the ground with a grappler. Arnaboldi will also hold the weight and height/reach advantage which will no doubt make him hard to counter if his strategy falls into place, but what will he do? Use more kicks then counter to the ground to fight for a submission, or stand up and use accuracy over wild fighting in which he mixes in his high kicks? Hard to say, but Kamen has the experience level of a former champion and if at 39 he hasn't faced a fighter like Arnaboldi yet then I'd be surprised.

 

Prediction: Kamen by KO

Keyboard "Digital " Warrior (338562)  vs. "The Unbroken" Mateusz Biernat (319804)

 

 Warrior (1-1) at 19 a very young fighter looking to take on a journeyman in Biernat. Warrior has a solid chin, good kicks, and was just promoted to a purple belt a couple weeks ago. He is a small dude as well, and could easily fight at 135 lbs, but in Batoru FC he is fighting up a class and taking on all comers. Warrior loves to mix his punches with leg and body kicks, and has excellent landing ratio especially with his leg kicks, so expect lots of kicks from him in this fight, and don't be surprised if he throws a high kick or two since we haven't seen it yet. He will not have the reach advantage as he is the smaller of the two fighters, so again leg/body kicks will be the difference. He has respectable wrestling and with his recent hard training on the mats, it could signal the fact that he has a new strategy to throw into his fight style. Biernat (11-10) well traveled and experienced, 9 years older than his young opponent he has had a roller coaster of a career. He won his debut against Kubota with a punch KO, so that was a solid way to start his new journey in Japan. Biernat has solid wrestling and a big right hand, which if he can land it flush, its good night at the opera now. Biernat has over his career fought in all sorts of ways, punching, kicking, clinching, elbows, knees, biting, take downs, ground n pound, and submissions.  Whew.....maybe Biernat needs to simplify his strategy and game plan to stay with only a few of those things, especially since he has a big right hand.

 

Prediction: Warrior by TKO, leg strikes

Fri Day (339611)  vs.  Graham Hunt (329582)

 

Another fight where a younger lion faces an older one, as Fri Day who is only 19 will fight a 28 year old Hunt. Maybe if Digital Warrior wins and Fri Day wins, they will fight each other?  But before that can happen, Hunt will most likely laugh at his young opponent and say.....he kid...your gonna get smacked!  Day (4-0) has an unblemished record at this point, winning 2 fights by submission and decisions while he a good chin and a tough brawler. He will have a slight size and reach advantage, but he will be lighter than hunt by fight time. Day likes to mix it up a bit, but he does throw lots of punches, I mean a lot. He may not land them all, but in volume he throws and then he throws a kick or two, or gets to a counter clinch where his opponents are all reacting to him and not being offensive. He can also play around with the ground game as he seems to have a natural fluidity on transitions from his back, so for a young prospect he will need to show that he can take care of Hunt before he moves on. Hunt (11-8) is on a 3 fight losing streak and will need to win this one to get himself on the correct path. Hunt has been more of a one sided fighter for his career as all of his wins has come by submission, but six of his eight losses have come by KO if he can't keep the fight down on the ground.  Hunt has a brown belt in bjj with great take down ability which spells adversity to Day. Hunt is also been known for a solid chin, but over time with each KO he takes that degrades some of his strength there. Hunt will need to get Day down and keep him there before Day lands an overwhelming majority of strikes.

 

Prediction: Day by KO, 3 punch combination special

 

There you have it folks, the top 5 fights of Batoru FC 5, good fights, great atmosphere, and above all the sushi is excellent with a beer! Save my seat as I wanna see this live!
