Share it

The second installment of Desert Force has just come to a close in Jordan’s capital city of Amman.

With marked technical supremacy from the Jiu-Jitsu stylists in the Middle Eastern tournament, practically all the fights ended by first-round submission.

The fighters put on brave displays of aggressive combat, to the delight of the crowd in attendance.

The only blemish on the night for Jiu-Jitsu came in the right hook from Russia’s Baga Agaev that put out black belt Francimar “Bodão” Barroso’s lights in the first round.

Francimar "Bodão" starts the action off with kicks.

Agaev, who came into the fight riding a win over Kevin Randelman, was wary of Bodão at the start of the first round after taking two powerful kicks to the leg, but launched an onslaught on the Brazilian the first chance he got, connecting a concussive right hook to Bodão’s chin.
