Welcome to the newest version of Missed Fists the place Jed Meshew and Alexander Okay. Lee shine a lightweight on fights world wide that will have been missed in these hectic instances when it looks like there’s an MMA present each. days.
We have coated many sorts of occasions since this function launched, and I feel it is protected to say that we have not seen something fairly like what occurred in Ft. Lauderdale final Thursday. . Earlier than we make stops in China, Poland, and Serbia, let’s check out the primary CamSoda Legends present that happened in Florida, which regularly looks like one other nation as effectively.
AL: We should always begin by letting everybody know that you simply actually worth the occasions that occurred on this present as an entire, is that truthful to say?
JM: That is an understatement. CamSoda Legends has been the perfect occasion of the 12 months but, and that features KSW fights. It was all bizarre, excessive, and enjoyable. So mainly it was the Charles “Krazy Horse / Felony” Bennett MMA present. Plus, I actually suppose the fighter’s flip operate was nice. Do not you agree?
AL: For individuals who did not watch this free on-line present, viewers have been inspired to spend cash and tip the fighters, which resulted in an audio clip taking part in on the present and within the room.
JM: Notable film quotes like “Kick His Ass, Sea Bass” being the one which I seen probably the most typically.
We should always advise readers that even in the event you enroll on the CamSoda web site (which I did, strictly for journalistic functions), there may be at the moment no option to watch a replay of the Legends occasion. Nonetheless, it wasn’t arduous to seek out footage of the fights on-line, not that I’d recommend anybody use nefarious means to return and test this one out.
For individuals who missed it, take us gently down into the pit.
JM: It was basically precisely what you’ll count on from a porn site-hosted MMA occasion besides that there have been a ton of notable fighters in attendance (not competing). The tipping system would decide which fighters would get a $ 1000 bonus after the combat and, extra importantly, result in some really wonderful instances like this:
Oh, and there was additionally combating.
Bruce Lutchmedial’s victory over Bennett was very nice in itself. “Felony” was Krazy Horsing within the first spherical, claiming that each hit that landed had harm him (a la Anderson silva) however he was so good at it that he actually seemed like he may have been in hassle at instances.
Within the second, Lutchmedial locked up a decent D’Arce choke that Bennett fought towards, after which within the third, dragging on the playing cards, Bennett briefly took Lutchmedial’s again. For a man who takes paychecks to cowl his hire and hasn’t seemed good for a very long time, “Krazy Horse” flashed among the uncooked expertise that made him one of many funniest fighters on the planet. MMA on the time.
AL: Other than, effectively, every part else about him, that is one other compelling aspect to Bennett’s fights. The person can nonetheless go! He is the definition of mercurial, and but it is so apparent that regardless that he misplaced his eighth combat in a row, he is mainly a stable fighter.
This entire scenario was simply made for him to behave like a idiot. One of many sounds that the sponsors may pay for taking part in on the PA system was “Spinning Again Fist” and naturally Bennett went for a sport begin after listening to this sensible knowledge from the general public on-line. We have been joking Final week how superior it was when the Alaska Preventing Championship ring announcer referred to as on the group to shout strategies in the midst of the combat and that is when it went to 11.
Lutchmedial deserved the win and positively deserved it, however there isn’t a doubt who the star right here was.
JM: That is from the second they introduced the winner of the choice:
AL: This younger lady clearly shares our enthusiasm.
Bennett later acquired right down to it with Colby Covington (in fact), who was current at this occasion hosted by porn (too, in fact).
JM: I do know we’re a great distance from Krazy Horse halcyon days, nevertheless it’s a nigga that slept Wanderlei Silva within the wings. Covington must right himself earlier than studying the true that means of ‘Chaos’. Additionally, shout at Mike thomas brown for breaking apart the combat with out spilling his beer.
AL: I am pulling my rope, Jed, however earlier than we transfer on we acquired the UFC drop Alex nicholson face the previous UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez in the primary occasion. Did this future and previous confrontation stay as much as the billing?
JM: No, no less than not so far as the combat itself is worried, which ended when Nicholson pressured Rodriguez to go on strike. He did not look critically harm or injured and given the extent of the occasion, we did not get solutions as to why he typed, nevertheless it would not be unfounded to imagine that Rodriguez simply did not need to be there. An ignominious consequence for a former UFC champion, that is for positive. Pay homage to Nicholson for realizing that heavyweights are a trash hearth of a division, so if he simply placed on some weight and fought above 205 he may have a ton of success.
Whereas the combat was mundane, the post-fight combat was something however. First, Nicholson begins yelling at Covington about taking trash and the way in actual life he and his boy would beat him. Then the ring announcer, who consistently tousled names all evening, began yelling on the UFC for not giving Nicholson one other contract, claiming it was “f ** king bulls **” It wasn’t that Nicholson was nonetheless out of the UFC and begging the followers. disgrace UFC brass on social media.
Once more I say, #CamSodaLegendsForever
AL: If solely we may speak about it perpetually, however alas, the present has to go on.
Shuhei Sakano vs. Ayideng Jumayi
AL: I am not even going to attempt to supply a transition to the Insurgent Preventing Championship 7 Principal Occasion, which happened on Sunday in Shanghai, China. Shuhei Sakano fought Jumayi Ayideng for the promotion bantamweight title and he placed on a memorable efficiency to win gold.
There’s a lot to digest right here. To begin with, Sakano does a lovely and elaborate dance earlier than getting into, which might make Akihiro Gono proud; secondly, the arbiter of this combat is none aside from Andy wang of The Final Fighter 5 “Stand-and-Wang” Fame.
I used to be making an attempt to get away from the insanity of MMA, however there isn’t any avoiding it, is there?
JM: Why would you need to attempt to do that ??? Bizarre MMA is so significantly better than the rest that we needs to be glad there was a lot of it final week. And actually, when the weekend’s marquee match was between a 41-year-old heavyweight who had a win over the previous two years and a 38-year-old (wow, Frank Mir it is solely 38?!?!) heavyweight that hasn’t fought in two years, I feel we will put to mattress the concept we’re masking prime athletics competitions this weekend.
AL: I am comfy saying that this combat between Sakano and Jumayi summer time a excessive degree athletics competitors. It has all of it. A couple of unruly brawls (Wang cherished this one, I am positive) and likewise some artistic struggles on Sakano’s half. At one level he went for a gogoplata as he was lifted up for a slam. He was extremely aggressive all through the combat and the 22-year-old is certainly the one to observe from this batch of fights.
JM: I am unsure you possibly can say it was prime flight and within the subsequent sentence it’s known as “unruly brawls” however I’ll deserve this to be most likely the funniest combat of the weekend. Every time there may be an try at a flying gogoplata, I’m there, to not point out what is maybe the perfect again grip there may be, as Sakano used the cage to step instantly on Jumayi’s again. .
AL: Sakano would finally finish this one with an assault from the very best place, fortunately giving Ayideng an exit with an arm-triangle submission.
Jakub Wiklacz vs. Simone D’Anna
Adrian Blonski vs. Jakub Hansbach
JM: Insurgent Preventing Championship wasn’t the one occasion of the weekend to function a flying submission try. At Celtic Gladiator 20 in Olsztyn, Poland, Jakub Wiklacz crashed right into a flying triangle over Simone D’Anna and in the end completed it. It is uncommon to see somebody absolutely locking an overhead submission earlier than their again hits the canvas.
AL: Looks as if a variety of aspiring submission artists have the motto: “Within the air? I don’t care. And it really works!
Surprisingly, it wasn’t even the perfect submission on the cardboard. These honors go to Adrian Blonski who patted Jakub Hansbach with an armband moments after his mind was blurred by an enormous knee.
We see so many superior knockouts on the worldwide stage and it seemed like Hansbach was going so as to add to this record, solely to finish up in Missed Fists for a completely totally different purpose. Higher luck subsequent time.
Your entire Celtic Gladiator 20 map might be replayed on Fb.
Michel Pereira vs. Laerte Costa
AL: Lastly, we’ve got one other spectacular submission, though that is the setup you must see to imagine. On the Serbian Battle Championship 17 Principal Occasion in Odzaci, Serbia, welterweight champion Michel “Demolidor” Pereira threw a completely savage – and one would suppose, unlawful – flip to assault opponent Laerte Costa.
JM: Sure, in response to the letter of the regulation, trampling on Pereira’s head is unlawful. However in the event you’re the kind of one who can watch a backflip guard head butt and your response is to get mad at unlawful strikes, you are most likely additionally sporting Birkenstocks and consuming plain yogurt for breakfast. Pereira’s backflip was wonderful and I am a agency believer that the primary rule of the prize combat ought to at all times be: if it is nice, it is authorized.
AL: If you’re a fighter and see that the third man within the cage is Jed Meshew, my recommendation could be to make peace with the gods you imagine in.
A replay of SBC 17 might be seen on their Fb web page, with the primary occasion beginning round 3:12:30.
