KONFLIKT FC - Champagne Sippin' Smack Talkin' Jaw Jackin' Thread...and WRITEUPS
Posted 24 May 2018 - 11:18 PM
Reporter: After a brutal and one-sided debut, a lot of critics are talking about your last fight, and your next one. Who do you think your next opponent will be? Any ideas?
Sheik: I have received no new offers; it doesn't matter. In my division, I will be King.
Reporter: Critics say your game is one sided and predictable. Are you more than just a one trick pony?
Sheik: I have had to do, nothing else. Fighting is easy. You hit a man, or grab him and throw him down. We are not dancing.
Reporter: With five wins and no losses, how long do you think it will be before you get a shot at the Konflict FC title?
Sheik: I don't know, and I don't care. Sooner or later that fight will come, and I will be ready for it. I have seen no man that scares me.
Reporter: That is a very bold statement. Hoddy McNeal, for one, might have some objection to it, since he currently holds the belt...
Sheik: Who? It doesn't matter. I just haven't met him yet, is all. Ask the others. But now, I must go. Thank you for your time.
Reporter: And there you have it. A few fights away from superstardom or obscurity, but so far he's off to a great start. Catch more of Iron Sheik and all of your favorite MMA up and comers at Konflict FC!

MMA LAS VEGAS NEWS:
Brian Pearson: I'm here outside The Palmtree with Buddy Barnett who just won the Konflikt FC 185 title. What feels better winning the belt or the tournament?
Buddy Barnett: Well they are both great feelings, have different benefits, and feel differently. If I had to choose while the tournament showed my growth from just being a talented high school state champion wrestler that didn't really know what he was getting himself into; into growing into grappler. I will continue to grow and keep improving to try and be the best champion I can be. Now with that said I would probably choose winning the belt. Sure I got a big check and a nice place to stay in for winning the tournament but I didn't get a trophy or a plaque or anything like that I could display showing that I had accomplished something. So winning the belt gets bonus points for that.
Pearson: You seem to be getting more popular all the time. Has that been difficult at all, do you like it, or has that changed anything for you?
Barnett: Well it has been great. I come to Las Vegas and people know me. I get more and more people cheering for me all the time when I come out to fight. Of course people recognize me all the time back home in St. Louis too. And I'm starting to get recognized other places as well. Like the other day in New York which is where I moved to train at the gym that Ikki Takeda set up for me and a few other guys; anyways I'm in a supermarket getting a gallon of skim milk and a guy walks up to me and says "hey aren't you Buddy Barnett that MMA fighter?" I told him yes and he told me he saw a youtube video of one of my fights and asked to get a picture with me. It was pretty surreal for me and I even gave him a spare ticket I had for my title fight tonight.
Pearson: So we know you just won the belt and probably don't know who you would face next but do you have any idea who you might face?
Barnett: Well I think Rossi makes a lot of sense. We both fought tonight and he is 4-0 and a fellow young, constantly improving, talented. and hungry fighter. So I think he makes the most sense probably. I mean he is really about the only guy that really makes sense. I mean Bugatti just got back in the win column and is 4-1 and I haven't fought him yet so I guess he would be possible too. No offers yet though.
Pearson: You seem to show a lot of respect for your opponents and general appreciation for the sport. Care to comment on why?
Barnett: I guess that is just part of who I am. Also I'm getting to do what it is that I want to do at such a young age. Most people aren't fortunate enough to get to do what it is that they really want to do. So I feel fortunate about that.
Pearson: I think in a previous interview you mentioned a guy that you heard was talented that would be joining your gym. Can you tell us who joined and anything about him?
Barnett: Sure thing. He is a young guy and still in high school. His name is Shen Kuei. I don't know a lot about him yet as I mainly just see him with coaches and haven't really had a chance to spar with him or anything yet. Looks like a good striker on the heavy bag. After he develops a little more maybe he will join the main class of guys. As of right now he's not allowed to.
Pearson: Can we talk to you again after you find out who your opponent will be?
Barnett: I would love to.

Konflikt FC VIII: Review
Main event Short Badass got the nod over Robert Kortig. It was a pretty close fight with Kortig getting the first round and controversial second round went to Badass. I personally gave the round to Kortig for his aggression. Third round was pretty much all Badass and he rocked Kortig but couldn't put him away. But I'm not one of the judges and Badass wins.
Co-main Randy Englehard submitted Hiroaki Hidaka by armbar. It started with Englehard getting the takedown in the opening seconds of the fight. And then he dropped some elbows on him to soften him up and saw the opening for the armbar and took it.
Yuri Boyka got the nod over Justin Sider. The first two rounds were won by Boyka for his aggression as he threw tons of shots landing virtually nothing. The third round went to Sider who picked up his pace and landed some good shots.
Steve Butcher got the KO against Pjotr Plumbowicz. It started with Plumbowicz getting the takedown and then they just basically rolled around trying to adavance position on eachother the entire first round. Second round opened with Butcher landing a shot and it was all over.
Stewie The Stupie gets the nod from the judges over Creed. It was a fight I agree with only one judge on that is Chris Downing who is the only judge that gave all 3 rounds to Stupie. The other two gave Creed round 2. Virtually all rounds looked the same. A bit of stand up at distance followed by the clinch and a bit of action followed by a takedown and some advancing position by both guys and failed submissions.
Milson Bow: TKO
Jason Transporter: TKO
Glen Jacobs: Submission
Thor Halo: TKO
Desmond Okafor: KO

Konflikt FC IX REVIEW:
Main Event saw Buddy Barnett capturing the first title at 185 in Konflikt when he submitted Moe Lester. The bell rang and Lester got taken down just as fast. Then Barnett quickly passed Lester's guard into half guard and worked the rest of the round in that position with strikes while looking for the occasional submission opening. Second round took place and they walked out Lester hit Barnett with a jab and then tried to clinch as Barnett circled away. After circling he darted in for the takedown. Shortly followed by Lester getting a sweep into the top position. Barnett saw Lester hanging his head low and sunk in a guillotine and ended the fight.
Co-main showed a close fight between Mario Rossi and Deer Hunter. Rossi got the win and won the first round pretty decisively and was the most clear round of the fight as to who won. Hunter won the second round but could have gone either way. Rossi got the third round on the judges scorecards but I felt Hunter should have stole the round after rocking Rossi with a minute and half left of the round and dropping him in the final 10 seconds.
Welter Weight got the KO against Santos Maricone. Maricone came in and cut Weight quickly. After getting cut Weight dropped Maricone with a right hand. Then he quickly drops him with another right and jumps on him and the ref jumps in.
Ryan Rodriguez get the TKO over Ethan Glover. First round saw Rodriguez dropping Glover and Glover getting a takedown and the ref was clearly not having any part of a ground game on his watch as he stands it up quickly. Rodriguez drops him again and cuts him followed by another takedown by Glover and the ref going I said we are keeping standing and stands them up quickly again. Rodriguez dominated the first round. Second round opens up with Glover still being weak in the legs and gets dropped quickly and gets back to his feet. Then Rodriguez drops him again and motions for him to get back up before sending him to the canvas again and the ref stopping the fight.
Marshall Artz get the KO by head kick against Joel Nielson. It opened with Nielson dropping Artz and cutting him. Then the rest of the round was played out by Nielson clinching and pulling guard repeatedly. Second round was some distance fighting followed by Nielson clinching and Aryz breaking the clinch until the end of the round in which he lands a spinning back kick to the head that hurt and then followed it up with another head kick and finished the fight at the end of the round.
Pyrrhus Epirus: TKO by cut
Dwayne King: Submission
Do It Yourself: Submission
Joseph White: KO
Big Daddy YO: TKO

Konflikt FC X PREVIEW:
This week the Las Vegas crowd will only be treated to one event this Saturday by Konflikt and it will be at The Underground.
Main Event will be Alexei Volkov who has been tested inside these cages and has come out on top every time and Sonor Jasrai who has only fought on the local circuit with a 5-0 record and 3 of his 5 submissions are against the same guy and his favorite submission by far is the armbar. Volkov likes to use his wrestling to keep the fight standing and his boxing to thrash folks and Jasrai has some great takedowns and a good submission game,
Prediction: Volkov KO
The Co-main Event will be between Total Bastard and Sitmongkol Sitsongrit. Bastard(3-0) and Sitmongkol(1-0) are pretty much the exact same skill wise. Who will walk away the winner? Will there be blood? Will a little guy get rocked? By a ticket to find out.
Prediction: Bastard KO
The third fight on the main card is between Ted Lewis and Light Weight. Lewis(2-0) is a boxer that can throw hands with the best in the game. Weight(2-0) is a muay thai fighter with all the natural striking skills a young gun could have. Who's gon get their _ _ _ kicked? Who's gon their wig split?
Prediction: Weight KO
The fourth fight on the main card is between Eddie Brock and Koby Horder. Brock(2-0) promises to leave his symbiote at home for this one. With his opponent being such a skilled wrestler and submission artist I'm not so sure this is a great idea. Horder(3-1) is an accomplished wrestler with a decent submission game.
Prediction: Horder Submission
The fight that will be kicking off the main card will be between Jackin Off and Thomas Jackson. Off(3-0) is young and about as skilled as they come in the striking game. He's undefeated in mma, amatuer boxing, and professional kickboxing. Jackson(2-2) is a jack of all trades master of none type of fighter. He typically comes in and feels out his opponent and searches for a spot to attack. Will he survive long enough to feel Off out?
Prediction: Off KO

Konflikt FC XII PREVIEW:
Ikki Takeda: Hi guys I'm Ikki Takeda here with your preview of this Saturday's up coming event. I took a step back as I've been dealing with the loss of my rescue who I had for over 5 years and was like my daughter and I protected her from everything except for cancer. But enough of that let's get to what brings us here and get on with the show.
Ikki Takeda: The Main Event is a 155 pound contest at The Underground in Las Vegas. It is between Bobby Dazzler(3-1) and Carson Wood (2-1). Both guys are coming off a loss looking to get back in the winning circle. It is your classic striker versus grappler match up. As always the question will be can the striker Dazzler keep the fight on the feet and avoid the takedowns, and can the grappler Wood get the fight to the ground and empose his will? I know my thoughts on this is in the favor of Wood by submission. I won't be surprised either way in this fight.
Ikki Takeda: The Co-main is a 135 pound bout between two tough fighters in another striker versus grappler match up. Basket Case (5-1) has a wealth of experience as a striker and Disco Kid (1-1) has some of the best wrestling in Konflikt. There is no doubt in anyone's mind if Kid can takedown Case. The question is can he do it before Case gets the KO? My thoughts on this one is a resounding win for Kid by submission and a fight that is way too soon for Case to be taking on such an accomplished wrestler. But hey guys that's why I don't make the big bucks.
Ikki Takeda: The third fight on the Main Card is between Benjamin Boogie (2-1) and Pontso Pelti (0-2). Boogie is a well rounded fighter who has striking, wrestling, and some bjj and is the favorite in this fight. Pelti also a well rounded fighter and much better than his record would suggest. Both of his fights were against the same fighter losing them both. Once on the local stage and his introduction fight into Konflikt. I got to sit down with Pelti.
Ikki Takeda: Pelti thank you for sitting down with me.
Pontso Pelti: You are welcome.
Ikki Takeda: So you have a fight in just a few short days with Benjamin Boogie. What are your thoughts on your opponent and your state as a fighter starting your career out as 0-2?
Pontso Pelti: Honestly I don't think much about Boogie. I have the better wrestling to choose where this fight takes place and I think my striking is better. So I think I win this fight anyway I want to. Well I am starting out with a bad record but we all have to start somewere and I started my career only face 1 guy multiple times who KO'd me quickly both times and faster each time. Monster just has my number.
Ikki Takeda: Do you think you would like to avenge those losses to him?
Pontso Pelti: Well of course I do, but I'm 0-2 against the guy so no way they are going to let me fight him again anytime soon. So I will get better and just become a completely different person than he had saw the previous two times so that it doesn't matter if he has my number I won't be the same guy,
Ikki Takeda: I have you by KO in this fight. And I have to continue my show and all I have time for but I want to thank you for stopping by,
Ikki Takeda: The fourth fight on the card is a fight I will be having another interview with the champion of the 145 pound division and him not defending his belt in a 145 pound fight Hoddy McNeal (4-0) as he faces off against Andre Lawson (2-1). McNeal can a solid striking game and a great clinch with a good sprawl. Lawson has great takedowns and a solid bjj game but a suspect chin.
Ikki Takeda: I have McNeal here and my first question is why aren't you defending your belt?
Hoddy McNeal: I heard they had problems again with Nevada State Athletics Commission sanctioning a title fight.
Ikki Takeda: It seems that Konflikt is having some conflict getting approval for title fights as fights that are suppose to be title fights and champions being scheduled fights that aren't title fights. As a fighter is this a red flag for you?
Hoddy McNeal: Not really I didn't even know I wasn't defending my title until a couple of days ago. All I do is receive a contract with a name and a place to sign. I don't look it over. I just sign. I let my manager worry about the managing and the coaches worry about the training and only look at the name so I can tell the coaches who to train me for. As a fighter though finding out I think it kind of diminishes what being a champion means if you aren't defending the belt and its bad for the division as well.
Ikki Takeda: Thank you for sitting down with McNeal and you win by KO for the record.
Ikki Takeda: The fight that kicks off the Main Card is another 145 pound fight and is between the bjj phenom Nathaniel Fredo (3-1) and muay thai sensation Eric Drenthe (1-1). Both of these fighters have a loss to the other's strengths. What will happen when the cage door slams and these two collide? Time will tell Saturday. I have Fredo by submission though.
Ikki Takeda: And it's time for my undercard predictions. Jr by KO, Jensen by KO, McBoxingMan by submission, Satoshi by gnp, and Mailic by KO in a weird fight between two guys by the same manager.
Posted 13 June 2018 - 07:25 PM
The last man I fought, retired after being locked in the cage with me. Wilfredo Gomez is about to find out why. One day, somebody might beat me in a fight, but it will not be Gomez. First round, I will knock him out.
Posted 17 June 2018 - 12:24 AM
Konflict FC 145 lb. champ Hoddy McNeil is a god damn machine. After walking through the Kings of Konflikt tournament, the 18 year old champion is set to defend his title against all comers.
" A slow jab from Fredo misses its intended target.
McNeal lands a left and a right that send Fredo crashing to the mat, dazed. McNeal thinks about following him to the mat but decides to wave him back up to his feet!
It looks like Nathaniel Fredo has been cut.
Fredo throws a body shot but no joy.
Oh Fredo is still all over the place! His legs are completely gone! Will he be able to recover?!! "
"Fredo throws an off balance right hand
and McNeal counters with a huge overhand right that connects right on the temple, sending him crumpling, face first to the floor! This one is all over! What a knockout!"
McNeil is set to face off against young submission specialist Andre Lawson, who has forced two of his three opponents to tap out. Well, to be fair, one of them wasn't able to tap out...
"McCallum content to sit in guard, stalling... Great. Oh but he could get punished here because Lawson has locked up a guillotine! Lawson's face is contorted as he sqeezes tight on the submission attempt - will he finish? McCallum is holding on here and Lawson must be using up a lot of energy. McCallum has gone limp! He's out! He's out cold! Lawson gets to his feet, tossing aside his stricken foe. Arms raised, he milks the applause from the crowd. Great submission!"
These two face off in a classic striker-grappler contest. Will McNeil be able to lay his powerful left hand on Lawson's chin, or will Lawson be able to weather the storm and drag his opponent down into dangerous waters? Tune in tomorrow for Konflict FC XII to find out!
Also on the card:
Muay Thai and Kickboxing competitor Basket Case takes on former NCAA Division I champion Disco Kid.

At 4-2 (2-2 in Konflikt FC), Japanese wrestler Shintaro Mifune is a veritable veteran among the young ranks at Konflikt. Although he dropped his first two fights here at Konflikt, he quickly rose to the challenge and shook off the cobwebs to secure two first round finishes. This has brought him to the Super 6 Elimination Round.
"Mifune raining down hammerfists from mount.
This has been an exciting period of action!
Mifune with good strikes from the mount here!
Mifune looking to finish here with some ground and pound. He lands one big shot that has Skelator covering up... and two more big strikes land, forcing the referee to step in and put and end to proceedings! This fight is all over!"
"Mifune has managed to pull guard. Let's see whether he can work an aggressive guard. It will also be interesting to see what tactics Stalin uses from the top position.
Mifune is working the butterfly guard. He manages to land a nice scissor sweep and is now in half guard on the top. Nice move.
Mifune in half guard on the top. He's looking for a kimura... He's got it locked and he's managed to free his trapped foot. Stalin tries to escape but it's on too tight and he has to tap! Great BJJ skills there from Mifune!"
At Super 6 Elimination Round, Mifune will face off against Thai Clinch specialist Noddy Holder.
"Quantum goes for a body shot but it's blocked.
Nice elbow from Holder.
Quantum drops down for a takedown but doesn't get it.
Holder lands an elbow inside.
Jeez, Pascal Quantum's cut is really nasty now. The referee must be thinking about getting that checked.
Holder gets an overhook and lands an elbow to the side of the head.
Holder creates a bit of space for himself and sneaks an elbow through Quantum's defenses.
The referee calls the doctor in to look at Pascal Quantum's cut. Oh no, the doctor has called an end to the bout!"
The 3-1 Kickboxer will be trying to use all eight limbs to turn this fight into a bloodbath; all three of his victories have come by way of doctor stoppage. It's a good thing his fight is the main event, or the rest of the field would have to swim through blood to fight each other!
Will the grappler have his way, or will the Kickboxer be able to keep the fight standing up? With Vegas odds at 5:1 in favor of Mifune and his Japanese submission wrestling, it's clear what the professionals think, but this is MMA and anything can happen once the cage is locked.
Also sharing the cage that night:
Voli Bear vs. Jon Rudskogen
Wife Beater vs. Jimmy Del Mundo
Dakota Otoua vs. Mikhail Popkov
Severi Damage vs. Jimmy Rage
Mikey McClean vs. D Chowder Jones
Eric Waylen vs. Herb Brooks
Damien Alvarez vs. Do It Yourself
Shawn MacArthur vs. Mister Happy
Lamont Banner vs. Herbert Mullin

Konflikt FC XII REVIEW:
ikki Takeda: In a weird turn of event there were no award winners in this event.
Ikki Takeda: McNeal smashed Lawson in 33 seconds. Too bad he didn't get his first title defense victory. But we all know who the champ is.
Ikki Takeda: Disco Kid danced his way into a submission victory over Basket Case in just 2 minutes and 46 seconds in round 1.
Ikki Takeda: Eric Drenthe made quick work of Nathaniel Fredo as he cut him, rocked him, and knocked him.
Ikki Takeda: Puncher McBoxingMan dominated the first round with a clinch followed by a takedown and a ton of submission attempts. The second round started the same but we saw some control from Wieczorek as he got the ref to stand the fight up. He then did a good job of keeping his distance the rest of the round smacking McBoxingMan around every time he got close. McBoxingMan came out strong in the third getting it to the ground and finally getting the submission just seconds before the fight was called.
Ikki Takeda: Atushi Satoshi got the quick takedown followed by an immediate submission triangle win.

Koflikt Super 6 Finals Preview:
Ikki Takeda: I'm the host of the preview show. Konflikt has a finals tournament for you and a title fight.
Ikki Takeda: The main event is between Shintaro Mifune who is 4-2 and Noddy Holder who is 3-1. Mifune as you all know is wrestling standout who has since added a bit of bjj and striking to his game. He still prefers the take em down and beat em until you beat em approach. Holder as know loves the clinch and cutting his opponents up in the clinch with them. My prediction is Mifune by TKO.
Ikki Takeda: The co-main is a heavy weight title fight between the unbeaten Voli Bear 5-0 and Jon Rudskogen who is 3-1 and lost his fight before last. Bear is mainly a grappler who takes his opponents down and either beats them up or submits them. You never which way he is going to finish you, but you know either way you are going down and getting hit. Rudskogen has been a guy that loves fighting from a distance but doesn't mind to clinch either. His main problems have been with wrestlers and guys pulling guard. Other than that his striking has been solid. Look for him to strike from a distance in this one as he doesn't want Voli Bear getting his hands on him and go for a ride in this one. My prediction Bear by submission.
Ikki Takeda: The third fight on the card is between the unbeaten Wife Beater 3-0 and Jimmy Del Mundo 2-1. Beater has won every fight by KO and has a good solid striking game. He has had a lot of practice beating on the best punching bag in the world. Del Mundo is a guy with some of the most solid wrestling we have seen, but purely uses it defensively and for clinch control. It would definitely suit him wise to use it offensively in this one. My prediction Beater by KO.
Ikki Takeda: The fourth fight on the card is between Shawn MacArthur 5-4 and Mister Happy 1-0. Mac Arthur has spent his time leading up to this fight on suicide watch. I wonder how his mental state will fair in the fight. Happy went to Disney World before the fight and stood in line for 5 hours to get to ride one ride. When asked if the wait was worth it his response was I totally got my picture taken with just about every old school disney cartoon character while waiting in line so yeah I'm Happy. My prediction is Happy by KO.
Ikki Takeda: The fight to kick off the main card is between the apparent genius Damien Alvarez who was beating high schoolers in wrestling from 10-14 when he graduated and college guys from 15-18 when he graduated college and Do It Yourself who is 2-1. Who will reign supreme in this fight. My prediction is Yourself by KO.
Ikki Takeda: Underard prediction time followed by an interview with one of them. Banner by KO, Rage by KO, Popkov by KO, Jones by submission, and Brooks by KO.
Ikki Takeda: I'm here with striking phenom Lamont Banner. Welcome to my show Lamont.
Lamont Banner: Thank you Ikki.
Ikki Takeda: So what do you think your biggest reason for success has been?
Lamont Banner: Well at the gym I train at Big Bear Fight Factory they have me with a really good strength and conditioning coach that has given me so much power and I have pretty decent striking coaches there as well.
Ikki Takeda: We haven't got to see much of your wrestling game, bjj, or your takedown defense as you have just annihilated everyone very quickly. How do you think you would stack up against some of the best wrestlers at 155 in Konflikt like Magomed Khaibulaev or Carson Wood?
Lamont Banner: Well both of those guys have a lot of experience and where I am currently they could probably take me down without question. But would I knock them out before they could take me down? If they can't get past my power no one can stop me.
Ikki Takeda: So do you think you will eventually grow in those areas of your game?
Lamont Banner" Maybe at some point as I know I will have to get well rounded at some point in my career, but as of right now if it ain't broke don't fix it.
Ikki Takeda: Well said and good luck on your fight.
