The 28th installment of Jungle Fight brought heaps of excitement to Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo club this Saturday. The highlight of the night came in Francisco “Massaranduba’s” drubbing of Derrick Burnsed.
Keeping an aggressive pace and hitting hard, Massaranduba secured victory with a solid cross 54 seconds into the second round, thus capturing the interim 70kg belt.
Now Marcelo “Magrão” Guimarães overcame Ildemar “Marajó” via unanimous decision after punishing the brother of Yuri Marajó with ground-and-pound and a sharp ground game, thus qualifying for the final of the under-84kg (middleweight) GP. In another heavily anticipated fight, John Lineker knocked out Luis Carlos “Salgadinho” with a well strung together series of strikes 1:11 minutes into the opening round. Lineker thus notches his eleventh straight win, showing why he’s been nicknamed “hands of stone”.
In other action on the night, William defeated Léo “Gigante” by contested unanimous decision where Léo suffered less fatigue and dominated the closing round; Douglas Moura, after getting the worst of the striking in the first round, managed to push the pace in the second, when he took down, mounted and choked out Silvio José with a rear-naked choke; Bruno Capelozza connected with solid shots on Jackson Mora, before the referee stepped in at 4:12 minutes of the opener; and Iliarde Santos punished Armando with ground and pound, before winning by doctor’s intervention 2:30 minutes into round two.
