Today SuperKombat held their first event of this week, hosting a one night, eight man heavyweight tournament along with a big single fight in Hesdy Gerges vs. Rico Verhoeven. As expected with heavyweights, there were some gassed out fighters, some slopfests and some huge knockouts.

Errol Zimmerman ran through the heavyweight tournament, stopping his first two opponents (Sebastien van Thielen and Stefan Leko) in the first round. In the finals, he brutally knocked out Roman Kleibil with a vicious high kick in the second round. Zimmerman seems to have regained his stride in 2011 after a bad 2010, albeit against a low level of competition. Still, it's good to see him back on track and it seems like he's taking fighting much more seriously now than last year.

Rico Verhoeven upset Hesdy Gerges in an outcome that not many saw coming. The whole fight was fought in close quarters, with Rico pressing and trying to impose his strength on Gerges. I personally thought Gerges won and I think either a Gerges win or extra round should've been the appropriate outcome. Hesdy landed cleaner and scored way more with low kicks while Rico mostly landed ineffective punches in close with some knees when they were tied up. Full results below:
