Former French K-1 fighter Jerome Le Banner continues to fight past the age of 40 and continues to have success by carefully choosing his opponents, which for a fighter of his level and age is no shame, really. I don’t want to see Jerome Le Banner fight against Daniel Ghita or Gokhan Saki at this point, I want to see Jerome Le Banner go out and put on a good show, which most people seem to agree with.
That isn’t to say that his opponent yesterday, Roman Kleibl, is a “can” by any stretch of the imagination, but he’s simply not experienced or big enough to really stand much of a chance against a fighter like Le Banner. It was a rough start for JLB in the first round, but some of his signature kicks were able to turn the tide during the second round, possibly breaking Roman Kleibl’s arm and leading to a stoppage, giving JLB yet another victory.
The rest of the card saw Kharim Ghajji and Yury Bessmeryny go to a three round war with Ghajji taking the decision victory.
