Brasil Fight MMA kept up its usual standard with its third event, serving up exciting bouts to a packed house in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, this Saturday. In the Minas vs. São Paulo interstate contest, the home team won by a score of 4 to 1. In the evening’s main event, it took Igor Chatubinha just eighteen seconds to knock out Marcelo Uirapuru.
The fight between Chatubinha and Uirapuru was a rematch and the Relma student at the recent battle ground between Rio drug traffickers and police came up spades again. While the first time the two faced off Igor won by way os submission, this time it came by knockout. After landing a spot-on cross that dropped Uirapuru, Chatubinha followed up with further strikes until the referee pulled him away.
In the Minas vs. Sampa contest, Udi Lima sought to finish with a double attack from the triangle. Cesar Gordim escaped with a slam. Udi was rocked and unable to defend the subsequent strikes, yielding Gordim a technical knockout and a 1-0 lead to the Minas Gerais home team. Next, Alessandro Zoio tied things up. The fighter made the most of Thiago Michel falling after a poorly timed kick, clinging to his back and finishing with a rear-naked choke in just 1:10 minutes of fighting.
Cristiano Titi again put Minas in the lead by overcoming Valter Silva. In the first round, the Jiu-Jitsu black belt managed to get the takedown and make it to the mount. The second saw a flash of brilliance from Silva, but he ended up getting knocked out 4:05 minutes in with a knee to the rib. Minas’ victory was secured by Joaquim Mamute. The first round was evenly matched, with Mamute landing good takedowns and working well on the ground, while Edson Conterrâneo the more aggessive and landing solid strikes. The second was Mamute’s, using his Jiu-Jitsu well, while the third saw Conterrâneo completely dominate landing takedown upon takedown. After the fifteen minutes, though, the judges gave the nod by split decision to the hometown boy.
Wrapping up the interstate dispute, Gustavo Coelho used his primary asset to good effect: his Jiu-Jitsu. Facing the hard-nosed Marcio do Bronx, he managed to land good takedowns, achieve back mount, and bring the fight to a close with a rear-naked choke 3:24 minutes in, to the joy of the massive crowd in attendance.
Nas outras lutas casadas, Rony Marques veio com tudo direto de Natal contra a fera Fernando Lageano. Rony conseguiu boas quedas e, depois de um knockdown com um soco certeiro, aplicou mais alguns golpes até o juiz separar. A lutadora local Ju Thai fez combate duro contra a carioca Aline Sério. Houve muito clinch e trocação, mas a decisão dividida foi para Ju. Na revanche entre Willian Viana e Maurício Facção, novamente trabalho para os juízes laterais. Willian dominou no primeiro round e, com socos, abriu um corte em Facção. Como sempre, o atleta mineiro endureceu, com gás até os últimos instantes, mas a decisão dividida foi para Willian, que empatou o saldo entre os atletas com uma vitória para cada lado. Vai ter nega?
In the other matches, Nova União’s Rony Marques steamrolled Fernando Lageano. Rony landed takedowns, downed his opponent with a well-placed strike, and followed up with further strikes until the referee pulled him away. Local girl Ju Thai had a hard-fought encounter with Aline Sério. There was lots of clinch action and striking, but the split decision was Ju’s. The rematch between Willian Viana and Maurício Facção went to the judges for the second time. Willian dominated the first round and opened a cut on Facção’s face with strikes. As is his custom, the local fighter kept going strong until the final bell, but the split decision went to Willian, tying up the score at one apiece.
