Ondrej Hutnik Wins Enfusion -95kg Season

The Enfusion -95kg season has finally come to an end in Prague, Czech Republic yesterday. The season consisted of a men's tournament at -95kg and a women's tournament at -63.5 kg. The final four competitors in the men's bracket were Ondrej Hutnik, Mohamed Boubkari, Frank Munoz and Wendell Roche. For the women, Julie Kitchen, Alaide Lawant, Hannah Mjoberg and Maria Bastasin were left.

Ondrej Hutnik was matched up with Mohamed Boubkari in the first semi-final and in the second, Frank Munoz went against Wendell Roche. Hutnik and Munoz both advanced by way of unanimous decision to meet in the finals. Hutnik took a unanimous decision over Munoz in the final to win the one night tournament and the Enfusion -95kg season. Ondrej Hutnik has quietly risen to the top of the -95kg weight range, just a few years after competing at 86kg, and 75kg before that. He's really excelled at this weight, winning all six of his fights in 2011. I'd definitely like to see him get a shot at Danyo Ilunga for the It's Showtime title at the weight.

For the women's bracket, Julie Kitchen was matched up with Maria Bastasin and Alaide Lawant took on Hannah Mjoberg. In quite an upset, Maria Bastasin forced a referee stoppage over Kitchen in the first round to advance to the finals. Alaide Lawant scored a unanimous decision over Hannah Mjoberg to meet Bastasin in the finals. Lawant ended up taking a unanimous decision over Bastasin to win the entire season.

MPL and It's Showtime veteran Tomas Hron knocked out Fatih Cam in the second round, rebounding from a KO loss to Nathan Corbertt in September. Full results below:

A-1 WCC Results: Yohan Lidon Retains Title Against Gregory Choplin

Another installment of the A-1 World Combat Cup series took place in Lyon, France on December 7, and while it's a bit late, results have just gotten out recently. The original card was supposed to have top French fighters such as Albert Chey, Karim Bennoui, Fabio Pinca and Mickael Piscitello but none of them ended up fighting. Chey and Bennoui were moved to a later date, Pinca is fighting on December 18 in the Thai Fight Finals and Piscitello got KO'd by Buakaw not too long ago. Nevertheless, the card went on and still had some decent match-ups.

Two of France's top fighters, It's Showtime 73MAX World Champion, Yohan Lidon and Gregory Choplin faced off for Lidon's WBC World Muaythai Middleweight Title. The two had met before, with Choplin taking a decision back in June of 2008. This time, Lidon took the win, taking a doctor stoppage in the fourth round over Choplin. It sounds like Choplin got injured and couldn't continue. Lidon rebounds from his loss to Vladimir Moravcik last month and Choplin has now dropped two in a row, losing to Abdallah Mabel last month.

A few Thais also picked up wins over their French counterparts. Kaopon Lek, the former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium champ who has been living in Italy for quite some time now, knocked out Crice Boussoukou in the second round. He's been fighting mostly in France and Italy for a long time now, and still going strong at 34 years old. Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, who was originally scheduled to face Fabio Pinca, knocked out Fares Bechar in the fourth round.

Full results below:

Abderahmane Penda def. Aydin Tuncay by decision.

Songniyom def. Boubu Konta by KO in Round 3.

Zinedine Hameur Lain def. Patrick Liedert by decision.

Kaopon Lek def. Crice Boussoukou by KO in Round 2.

Ludovic Millet def. Frederic Berichon by decision.

Berneung def. Mohamed Houmer by TKO (Ref. Stoppage) in Round 2.

Sittichai Sitsongpeenong def. Fares Bechar by KO in Round 2.

Rumble of The Kings 2011 Results

SAtoSwedish promotion "Rumble of The Kings" ran their annual November show yesterday, a night of big fights usually somehow involving Jorgen Kruth in a fight. This year was no different, but this year also hosted some fireworks as Yodsaenklai Fairtex vs. Artur Kyshenko as well as Dzabar Askerov vs. Chahid Oulad el Hadj. It was an internet PPV show with a mixed card of Mixed Martial Arts and K-1 fights, with the fight between Marius Zaromskis and Bruno Carvalho making international headlines thanks to Zaromskis landing a somersault kick during the fight.

A fight originally advertised as the main attraction was Ray Sefo vs. Jorgen Kruth in MMA rules, but apparently that fight was scrapped in favor of Kruth taking on Yusuki Kawaguchi. Kawaguchi is a fighter who never quite moved up the ranks in Japan as he is a Heavyweight, a division known to be weak for Japanese fighters, but he does have one notable victory over James Thompson in DREAM and has fought Mariusz Pudzianowski. The fight with Pudz leaves one to believe that he knew what he was getting into stepping into the ring against Jorgen Kruth in his home promotion and went down to Kruth in the first round via TKO after controlling him with his Judo early on. This is Kruth's fifth consecutive MMA win, most of which happened in his home promotion of ROTK, so take that with a grain of salt.

Yoshihiro Sato stepped up to fight at 75kg against Alex Tobiasson Harris. Sato held his own in the first round using his kicks and length to his advantage as he usually does before getting overwhelmed in the second round by Harris's boxing. The third round proved to be equally frustrating for Sato who was unable to break Harris's rhythm and he ended up dropping yet another decision to a fighter that many have only seen fight a few times. Sato has had a frustrating few years and should stick to 70kg fights, but it is always good to see a Japanese Kickboxer hitting the international scene, win or lose. Another disappointing fight came when Askerov met Chahid. This was an evenly-matched bout between two of the world's most exciting 70kg fighters and had a strange ending. Chahid took an unintentional low blow, much like in the Giorgio Petrosyan fight from earlier this year, and much like that fight, did not return to his feet to fight. Now, this is where it gets strange. The ref gave Chahid three minutes to recover, and after Chahid did not get back to his feet, the ref simply counted him down and gave the victory to Askerov. To say that this is wrong is an understatement, in situations like this a fight like that would be considered a No Contest, not be ruled in the favor of the fighter delivering a foul.

The feature bout of the evening at least saw some better action, as Artur Kyshenko was able to best Yodsaenklai Fairtex in three rounds. Both men stood toe-to-toe and threw everything they had at each other, with Yod simply being the smaller of the two fighters and having lost a step with his weight gain over the past few years was not as nimble as he needed to be. This included in the third round dropping his hands and taking damage with hopes of finding an opening from Kyshenko, which sadly did not work out. Kyshenko took the win and is having a stellar year.
