Lightweight Title Headline Bout: Sittichai(C) def. Marat Grigorian by Split Dec - Rd1: Not much feeling out here as they have already fought each other twice. Grigorian being busier with hand and low kick combos. Nasty clash of heads opens a cut on Sittichais head. Rd2: Sittichai looking more comfortable this round, getting his left kicks going, and landing some nice straight lefts. Rd3: Momentum swinging in Sittichais favor, hes keeping great distance now and making Marat miss with hands and countering with his own left hand, left kick, or knee. Rd4: More of the same but Grigorian had one good moment landing a good right uppercut, but not much else all round, just Sittichai kicking, moving and landing left hands. Rd5: Bit of a closer round because Marat was busier but still not landing anything clean apart from a few low kicks, which Sittchai landed more of.
Lightweight Contender Tournament Final: Dylan Salvador def. Hysni Beqiri Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Beqiri with the power but cannot land on Salvadors tight defense while Dylan lands a couple hard low kicks and some decent punches. Rd2: Beqiri not throwing much this round at all and Salvador throwing constant punches and kicks all round, Beqiri is looking tired. Rd3: Salvador takes this round aswell, Beqiri has no more power and Salvador is just too clever.
Featherweight Co-Headline Bout: Fabio Pinca def. Mosab Amrani by Split Dec - Rd1: Both fighters going hard this round swinging punches and kicks at the same time, someone is going to get caught or Mosab is going to get tired. Rd2: All Pinca this round, Mosab hitting air or Pincas guard and Pinca landing pretty much everything. Rd3: Again Pincas round, hes just so relaxed and experienced nothing is phasing him and hes just playing his own game while Mosab swings wildly at air.
Lightweight Contender Tournament Bout: Hysni Beqiri def. Antonio Gomez by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Round starts slow until Beqiri landed a hard right and knocks Gomez down. Once Gomez gets up Beqiri got a little wild and got caught and wobbled with a couple left hooks, a few more seconds in that round and Gomez would have scored a knockdown himself. Rd2: Gomez much busier this round throwing combos and low kicks with Beqiri not doing much except for in the last 20 seconds throwing some power but not enough. Rd3: more of the same but Beqiri a little busier but nothing significant landed for either fighter. This fight should go an extra round
Lightweight Contender Tournament Bout: Dylan Salvador def. Anatoly Moiseev by Maj Dec - Rd1: Close feeling out round Moiseev landing more combos but Salvador landing lots of inside low kicks. Rd2: Salavador pressuring Moiseev onto the ropes and landing nice punches and a flying knee to the head, Moiseev backing up too much. Rd3: Moiseev starts moving forward this round but doesn't land much, its Salvador now landing while moving backwards and then pushing forward with hard knees to the body and head and still landing that inside low kick. Great fight.
