Rodrigo Damm was looking to rebuild himself in Strikeforce, but ran into a handful in Justin Wilcox at this Friday’s event in the United States. The American was unforgiving, relentlessly battering the black belt in the first round. With his face mangled, the doctors refused to let the Brazilian return, waving off the bout.
Ealier, Caros Fodor literally massacred David Douglas. With a first-rate ground game, Fodor sunk a number of holds in the first two round, just not finishing the fight because Douglas showed true grit. But he kept firing away, landing two knees and a hook that put Douglas away, forcing the ref to call an end to the fight.
