Fury FC 6 was a great show, and this will be just as great, no doubt. Really looking forward to it, make sure you're watching, if you can!
I posted a PBP in the last event, so check it out if you want to see who is who. Here it is...
Paulao Bueno vs. Vitor Tofanelli, close fight decision for Tofanelli, who was in a proper extended armbar and fought out of it, that was seriously extended, he also nearly finished Bueno with a arm-triangle choke. Good close fight, Tofanelli advances.
Henrique Mello vs. Gabriel Vega,
Mello catches Vega with a huge overhand right, must of been under 30 seconds, which drops him, a few punches on the ground and its over.
Adriano Goncalves vs. Eduardo Pachu,
Very good performance from Pachu, was looking to be a dominant decision win with great striking on the feet, trips from the clinch to which he consistantly kept going to side control, towards the end he went to mount and started pounding, grabbed an arm quickly and got the straight armbar. Great performance. Submissions is not his game normally either, he normally likes to knock people out.
Giovanni Diniz vs. Mauricio Reis,
Great quick double leg shots has Mauricio Reis, also a nice suplex throw Josh Barnett/Yoshida like. Spends most of round 1 on top of Diniz. Reis goes for a few nice flying knees in round 2, he really can take this fight to the ground at will, great takedowns. Rousimar Palhares in the corner of Reis here. Great boxing in the 3rd round from Diniz, and now the takedown attempts from Reis aren't as quick/strong. But Diniz gets too confident and over commits to punches and Reis gets a big slam on Diniz. Reis getting some nice knees to the head from side control in round 3 and some decent ground and pound. The ref stands them up for some reason, but Reis seems to have his second wind and the takedowns come quickly again.
Giovanni manages to get on top at the end of the round and some good G+P but the bell rings and not enough time for Diniz. Reis gets the decision in a decent performance.
So in order of impressiveness, going through to the semi finals of the Lightweight grand prix..
Henrique Mello/Mauricio Reis (can't really compare)
Now the Middleweight GP
Rafael Sapo vs. Eduardo Telles, (looking forward to this one)
Holy shoot, Eduardo Telles by headkick in like the first minute, and he is out cold. And Telles is known for his sick jiu jitsu, and he goes and does that. :O
Eduardo Telles via KTFO!
Rodrigo Pimpolho vs. Leandro Batata,
Pimpolho fighting out of UDL (shogun's new camp) but he gets caught in the temple by Batata early and Pimpolho stumbles and goes down, one punch on the ground and the ref calls it, maybe a bit premature, maybe not. Leandro Batata via TKO.
Cassiano Tytschyo vs. Rodrigo Ximbica,
Extra huge love from the crowd for Rodrigo Ximbica. So there dissapointed when there man loses in the first round via Guillotine, Cassiano went for it a couple of times then got it midway through the 1st round. Cassiano showed some nice leg kicks, and he's only 19.
Rodrigo Smurf vs. Jorge Michelan,
It says Rodrigo Smurf on the card, but I don't think it is. Sounds like Matheius something. Up and down first round Jorge seems like a good wrestler, threw some armbar attempts but nothing came of them. Jorge catches him with a left jab right on the jaw and knocks Matheius out cold, he was obviously out and Jorge with a real late punch, you could tell by the look on his face it was on purpose, the commentators were calling him an ass and a dick which was cool. Jacare awards the medal to Jorge.
So in order of impressiveness, going through to the next round of the Middleweight GP...
Jacare grabs a mic and starts shouting down it, the crowd seem to like it. Apparently it was funny, in portuguese obviously.
Superfight 77kg - Welterweight?
Yoshitomo Watanabe vs. Fabricio Monteiro,
Watanabe has a 6-7 record, Monteiro fought Nick Thompson at the first Sengoku earlier in the year and got screwed in a decision loss. These guys trade for a while and then Monteiro gets it to the floor where he quickly mounts, Watanabe turns and gives his back, and Monteiro chokes him to the tap. A rather big looking "Shogun" Rua awards the trophy to Monteiro and says some words to the crowd.
Fury FC Lightweight Championship
Rafael dos Anjos vs. Otsuka Takafumi,
Anjos is visibly much bigger than the Japanese fighter, he gets the fight to the ground quite quickly and executes some decent ground and pound during the round, Takafumi you can see spit a tooth out during the G+P, definitely a tooth.. Huge slam in the 2nd round by dos Anjos, up above his head and down to the floor goes Takafumi. The clinch is no contest in this fight, Anjos just so much bigger, or so it seemed, Takafumi gets a trip takedown as I type that and then some vicious G+P from the Japanese fighter! Big turnaround in the end of the 2nd. Some good quick punches and especially kicks by Takafumi in the 3rd, a takedown each and a very nice trip takedown from Takafumi, he is really impressing me as I thought dos Anjos would run through him. Good close fight, I had him winning the 3rd round, 1st round went to Anjos, 2nd was close...
Split Decision....Rafael dos Anjos, and wow actually some boo's from the crowd when the decision announced even though Rafael was a huge fan favourite. Good fight.
KO of the Night - Eduardo Telles - Running Headkick
Sub of the Night - Eduardo Pachu - Straight Armbar from Mount
Fight of the Night - Rafael dos Anjos vs. Otsuka Takafumi
Good stuff and I really liked the production aswell.
Eduardo Pachu is the best prospect from either tournament. Really looking forward to seeing him fight and hopefully take down the GP.
