Even in the rain, the crowd persisted and marked a heavy presence at the arena set up on Praia da Costa beach, in Vila Velha, Espírito Santo. Hometown fighters, brother and sister Rodrigo and Carina Damm had a field day.
Against game Peruvian Ivan Pitbull, Rodrigo worked the ground and pound well in the opening. After an evenly-matched second round, the Alliance black belt and Minotauro Team representative landed a stunning knockdown from a straight punch. He then followed up on the ground, trapping his opponent’s arm in a crucifix. After the final bell, Rodrigo was rewarded the win by unanimous decision.
The other Damm family representative, Carina, didn’t encounter too much resistance in overcoming the less experienced Aline Serio. After getting a takedown, she mounted and pounded here opponent till the referee intervened. In the evening’s main event, a fight, at the very least fun to watch, was warrior Edson Conterraneo’s, who made it to the mount in the first round, wearing out the heavier Geronimo Mondragon, who gave up in the second stanza, so worn out he was. The fight had many twists and turns and the fighters were exhausted, nearly dragging themselves out of the ring.
In the best fight of the event, Renan Baron won another for Kimura Nova Uniã. Against Sergio Bomba, the son of a boxer demonstrated solid striking and was better throughout the three rounds to take the unanimous decision.
