Takaya by decision, good call again

Hiroyuki Takaya got his revenge, not to mention the DREAM featherweight title.

Some 15 months after Takaya was edged out by Bibiano Fernandes in split-decision fashion for DREAM's inaugural featherweight belt, "The Streetfight Bancho" took his own decision, this time in unanimous fashion, to wrestler the belt off of Fernandes' waist.

The bout served as the featured bout of DREAM's massive year-end "Dynamite!! 2010" event, which took place today at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and aired in the U.S. on HDNet.

Save for a few early moments, the 10-minute opening round took place exclusively on the feet. While moderate in pace throughout, the round saw Takya remaining more active in his movement and constantly landing the cleaner blows. Fernandes landed a stiff uppercut in the closing seconds, but it was Takaya's ring generalship that appeared to earn him the win.

The second round remained tight, though it played out in similar fashion. Takaya appeared to remain just out of range for most of the frame. Using his rangy punches and snapping leg kicks, the challenger appeared to do just enough on the feet to earn the frame. Add in a defended takedown along the way, and Takaya looked in good shape.

In the final frame, Fernandes appeared to realize the severity of the situation as he pressed forward quickly from the opening bell. An initial takedown saw Takaya earn a reprieve after falling through the ropes, and the challenger scrambled back to his feet and forced Fernandes to jump guard after a second attempt.

The gamble did not pay off. Takaya looked comfortable pounding away from Fernandes' guard, and after some brief confusion on a positional reset, the challenger poured on the ground and pound assault in the closing minute. When the final bell sounded, there was little doubt who would walk away with the title, and Takaya was correctly awarded a unanimous decision.

With the upset win, Takaya (15-8-1) claims the featherweight title and has now won three consecutive fights. Fernandes (8-3) sees a seven-fight win streak snapped, though the Brazilian may look for a rubber match in the near future.
