Nathan Corbett and Frank Giorgi Win in Australia

The first "Total Carnage" event took place a few hours ago in Australia and results are starting to come in. Of course, Nathan Corbett, who ws partly behind the card, fought in the main event against Stephane Susperregui of France, with Corbett's WKN World Title on the line. Another WKN World Title was on the line as Frank Giorgi fought Tobias Alexandersson of Sweden at -69.9kg.

Nathan Corbett won a decision over Stephane Susperregui but from the sounds of it, it was a very tough fight for the man known as "Carnage." One account of the fight says that Susperregui was very tough and threw everything at Corbett, slipping all of Carnage's big shots. He even managed to cut Corbett, apparently. I didn't give him much of a chance, so props to Stephane Susperregui for putting up a good fight against one of the best in the world.

Frank Giorgi won a decision over Tobias Alexandersson. It's a good win for Giorgi, who bounces back form his loss to Buakaw at the Thai Fight finals in December. He'll make a quick turn around, as he's scheduled to face Steve Moxon on April 28. Moxon and Giorgo are the top 70kg fighters in Australia, Giorgi at Muay Thai and Moxon at K-1 rules so it should be a great fight.

Another good fighter out of Australia, Kym Johnson won the WKN Australian middleweight title in his fight against Brett Witton.

Weekend Results

Fight NightA few noteworthy results from this weekend:

Kicking off the weekend was Kings of Kombat 3 in Australia.  The show was originally slated to be headlined by Paul Slowinski vs. Peter Graham, but Slowinski had to drop out due to injury and was replaced by Andre Meunier.  In the end, it was the K-1 veteran Graham who was victorious, stopping Meunier in the 3rd with leg kicks.  The semi-main event was another clash involving K-1 names, as 2010 Oceania GP champ Ben Edwards faced Carter Williams.  Edwards took the majority decision in a close fight.  One other result from this show - in a fight of great interest to local fans, Steve Moxon defeated Jordan Tai by majority decision in a fight that sounds like a must see.  At the show they also announced early details for Kings of Kombat 4 in August: headlining the event will be the rescheduled Slowinski vs. Graham fight, along with a rematch between Edwards and Williams, plus Errol Zimmerman vs. an opponent yet to be determined.

In France, the big event was Explosion Fight Night vol. 3.  When this show was announced some time ago, Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee was slated to appear as part of a 4 man tournament, however, Sudsakorn ended up not taking part in the event as the 71kg tournament was cut.  In the main event, Aiello Batonon defeated Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn via majority decision.  Also on the card, Xavier Bastard won over David Macintosh via unanimous decision, and Hocine Bennoui won a 4 man 65kg Muay Thai tournament.

Finally, a pair of MMA notes from the weekend.  In Strikeforce, K-1 veteran Scott Lighty took part in the latest Challengers event.  Best known to K-1 fans for his 2005 Vegas Grand Prix run, Lighty has put together impressive 6-1 record since making the switch from K-1 to MMA.  However, he hit a bump in the road here as the former kickboxer was soundly defeated by Lorenz Larkin.  And in Bellator, the man who upset Andy Souwer, 2010 Shootboxing S-Cup finalist Toby Imada was back to his MMA roots.  He was defeated by Patricky Freire via TKO in round 1.

Jorina Baars Dethrones Cris Cyborg at Lion Fight 4

Cyborg

My god, this fight was just insanity. Cris Cyborg came into this fight as the favorite due to her MMA career, but Kickboxing fans knows who Jorina Baars is and knew that she'd cause some serious problems for Cyborg. Referee Tony Weeks had a hard time following the action and missed at least two knockdowns that should have been scored for Baars, one in round one, another in round four.

Baars

That being said, Baars dropped Cyborg in round one with a huge head kick after a push kick should have been considered a down. Jorina Baars put on the fight of her life, though. The spinning back kick that put Cyborg down in round five secured the fight for Baars in a fight that we were all fearing hearing the scorecards. Incredible fight and, c'mon, let's be honest here, this just makes Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey hype seem like a distant memory now.
