Oktagon Fight Code: Armen Petrosyan Clinches His Way to an Ugly Decision

ArmenYoshihiro Sato even fighting right now just shows the spirit that he has. This right here is Japanese spirit, this is budo. Japan is in a state of disaster and Yoshihiro Sato comes to fight against Armen Petrosyan. Armen has a lot to prove as he is in the shadow of little brother Giorgio. Sato comes in immediately with very tight combination work, but Armen picks and chooses his spots. Sato is fighting on guts and emotion, but as always, he is an intelligent fighter. The only problem is Armen can give it right back. Incredible round for both men.

The second round sees both men try to outsmart each other agai, but Armen uses a lot of thai sweeps early on to frustrate Sato. Reminds me of what Overeem did in his earlier K-1 fights. Both men are working their teep to keep the other at bay and clinching when they get in close. Sato does have a reach advantage ans is only really using it to avoid getting hit. Not the same fire as the first round.

We head into Round 3 most likely even on rounds and Sato looks ready to steal the show but Armen is looking to take him down, apparently. Aremen is all about working the clinch, but Sato is actually landing some solid knees. Very ugly round once again, should probably be a draw but I could see it going to Armen.

Armen takes the ugly decision.

It's Showtime 46: Hesdy Gerges Goes to War With Daniel Ghita, Survives to Take a Decision

The fight that almost didn't happen is indeed happening. Hesdy Gerges has had his legal problems, but he is a free man for now and takes on the very, very tough Daniel Ghita. Both men start off throwing incredibly hard and fast kicks, to the extent where you forget how big they are. Ghita's hands have improved, but Gerges still has an edge in that department, he is also checking every few leg kicks, but Ghita's leg kicks are crisp and deadly.

Ghita comes out a bit slower than he did in the first round and is getting frustrated by Gerges' quick combos. He drops his hands and invites Gerges to unload on him, awesome moment where he is just shouting for more punishment. This won't win him the round or the fight, but moments like that are amazing. Gerges keeps his combos crisp and near the end of the second round is actually able to drop Ghita hitting him low! Ghita pulls himself up and keeps slugging it out. It isn't clear if that was counted as a down or not, but it doesn't matter as it was a round for Hesdy.

Going into the third, Ghita looks visibly tired while Gerges is still moving forward and connecting with combinations. Ghita makes an epic comeback and lands a few mighty kicks and follows up with a few big punches, going to the body of Gerges with kicks and punches. Hesdy is showing signs of being hurt but he keeps coming. Ghita lands flush on Gerges' jaw and Gerges pulls a Ghita and moves head first at him with his guard down. These guys are just trying to kill each other.

The round ends and I'd say Gerges won the first two and Ghita took the third, but I want an extension round.

It looks like Hesdy Gerges has taken the unanimous decision, winning those first two rounds in the fashion that he did. Amazing fight. Hesdy Gerges is going to go places in the Heavyweight division and Ghita is going to be around for a very long time.

The second round is given a punctuation mark as Souwer drops Aussie early on with an overhand. Aussie protests that it was a knockdown, but like hell it was. Andy Souwer is showing the world that while he has had some disappointing performances that isn't who he is. Souwer now really cutting off the ring for Aussie, getting him in the corner.
