Karim Ghajji Scores Huge Tournament Win, Beats Lidon and Aikpracha

Nuit des Titans put on another big show in France today, which saw a four man tournament at 72.5kg, as well as a number of super fights featuring the likes of Fabio Pinca, Dernchonlek, Super X and Aziz Hlali.

The tournament featured Aikpracha Meenayothin, Yury Bessmertny, Yohan Lidon and Karim Ghajji. Aikpracha faced Bessmertny in the semi finals and in the other semi, Lidon fought Karim Ghajji, in what was a rubbermatch between the two.

Aikpracha defeated Bessmertny, but he needed an extra round to get a decision win. Aikpracha won rounds one and three, but in the second round he got dropped and almost got finished. The extra round was all Aikpracha, however.

Karim Ghajji and Yohan Lidon had fought twice before, with each of them winning once. The two times they fought had been under K-1 rules, and with this one being Muay Thai, it looked like Lidon was the favorite. Ghajji scored a decision victory though, in what seems to have been a very close fight much like their first two encounters.

The final was where the real shock of the event was. Karim Ghajji knocked out Aikpracha in the first round with a combination of a high kick, straight left, knee and a huge right hand to end things. This is a huge win for Ghajji, who doesn't normally even fight Muay Thai. Aikpracha, despite having fought a week ago, was the sure favorite to win the tournament. For Ghajji, this tournament win gives him a ton of momentum as he'll debut in GLORY in April in a big fight that will probably be announced soon.

Also on the card were some super fights. Fabio Pinca defeated his Thai adversary, Yakdam by decision. Apparently Pinca had a tough time with Yakdam's awkward style but still managed to get the win. Super X stopped Aziz Hlali in the first round, but the word is that it was a terrible stoppage and Hlali protested after. Dernchonlek Sor. Sor. Niyom cruised to a decision over Issam Reghi.

Roman Mailov Wins 16th Straight, Onto GLORY In 2013

Roman Mailov, a 21 year old up and coming fighter out of Poltava, Ukraine, recently signed with GLORY and today he fought his final fight of 2012 in Moscow, Russia. The event he fought on was W5's last event of the year, also with their finals of year-long tournaments which they ran.

Mailov faced Fikri Arican of Turkey and picked up his 16th win in a row, going 9-0 in 2012. The fight was set to go to an extra round but Arican refused to fight any longer so Mailov was awarded the victory by TKO.

W5 did a great job of building Mailov up as a fighter. They featured him consistently on their events and slowly but surely increased his level of competition. It also must be taken into account that 2012 was also the year where Mailov stepped up to fight at 70kg from his previous fighting weight of 63.5-67kg that he was fighting at before this year. The move up in weight has paid off, as he's been signed to GLORY and is set to make his debut for them in 2013.

Also on the card was Mailov's teammate and super prospect Alim Nabiev, who at 18 years old is also tearing through his competition, going 8-0 in Russia this year after his unanimous decision win today against Stanislav Kazantcev at 70kg. Also on the car dwas Alexander Surzhko, who took unanimous decision over England's Pete Irving.
