FIGHT REVIEWS

Aluizio da Assuncao def. Mily Golovanov
Riding a 3 fight undefeated streak, the takedown specialist in Golovanov seemed primed to defeat the hard hitting Brazilian, Aluizio da Assuncao. This was not the case, however, as Aluizio used his wrestling background to stop the takedowns of Golovanov and light him up on the feet. While Golovanov toughed it out early on, he was unable to continue after Assuncao stuffed a takedown and proceeded to unload on his noggin with soccer kicks to force the stoppage. Assuncao was coming off a tough submission loss to Jan Olav Aker, but this win bounces him back into the winners circle.

Inejiro Chiba def. Humberto Falcao
Both of these men came into this fight coming off losses and were in need of a win. While it was pretty evenly matched early on, Chiba connected with a hard shot that dropped Falcao and from then on the Brazilian just didn't look the same. Chiba spent the rest of the fight lighting up Falcao with his boxing to cruise to the unanimous decision victory.

Ikku Funaki def. Carlos da Guia
Can you say UPSET? Few gave Funaki a chance against the muay thai specialist in Carlos da Guia, but were proven wrong early in the fight. da Guia came out strong, throwing some good combinations but became frustrated as Funaki used his elusiveness to avoid any damage. It wasn't until nine minutes in that Funaki would catch da Guia coming in with a flurry of punches, dropping him hard with an over hand right. Unable to answer the ten-count, da Guia was declared knocked out and Funaki would score the upset victory. da Guia is now on a two fight losing streak, both coming by knockout.

Gerson Mauricio def. Hiro Arai
The story of this fight was the striking of Gerson Mauricio. Arai came into this fight as the slight favorite and was thought to be the better striker of the two, but was blown out of the water as Mauricio countered with leg kicks and combinations before dropping Arai early in the fight and unloading with shots against the ropes to get the TKO victory.

Oleg Dorosklov def. Flavio Alberto
Early on, it seemed like Oleg Dorosklov would taste defeat for the first time after getting dropped early from a hard punch. However, Dorosklov showed his toughness by recovering and using his conditioning to grind out the decision victory. Much like in his fight with Assuncao, Alberto started off strong and looked amazing, landing numerous hard shots to the face of Dorosklov but his lack of conditioning cost him as the fight went on, eventually gassing and actually being out struck by the Ukrainian judo player. While he is now riding a 2 fight losing streak, Alberto is only 24 and has plenty of time to work on his skills. Combined with his explosive style, he could very well be a force to reckon with in the near future. As for Dorosklov, with this victory he advances to 2-0 in his MMA career. He showed major improvements since his first fight, including improved striking and wrestling. While he still has a to learn, the 37 year old judoka from Ukraine is confident he can continue his undefeated streak in his next fight.

Nazario Pessao def. Gyokusho Fujimoto
While it wasn't the biggest upset of the night, it was still an upset. Fujimoto came into this fight with a loss in his previous fight, but it was against the current Alpha-1 Heavyweight Champion. Fujimoto's kickboxing style was assumed to be too much for Pessao, but many critics were proved wrong as Pessao was able to take Fujimoto the ground, mount him and finish the fight with an armbar. Pessao is now 10-0 in his MMA career and has finished two fights in a row by armbar. With this win, Pessao inches closer and closer to an ever nearing title shot.

Hassan Fezzik def. Ari Peltonen
In a fight that was arguably the most hyped of the night, both fighters really failed to deliver. Fezzik started out strong, taking down Peltonen at will, but was shocked to find he could not pass the guard of Peltonen. As time went on, Fezzik began to wear down for seemingly no reason and was beginning to get out grappled and out struck by his opponent. One would might think Peltonen would have taken advantage of the fatigued Fezzik and put on some pressure? Wrong. Peltonen failed to do anything but gas out himself after continuously clinching with Fezzik and allowing him to catch his breath. Early in the first round, Peltonen shot for a takedown but was stuffed, giving Fezzik the opportunity to get side control and submit Peltonen to retain the title. Fezzik improves to 29-0, he showed that he is not immortal and that it may just take a better fighter than Peltonen to beat him.

In a surprising turn of events, Go Yamamoto has withdrawn from his quarter final bout with Edilberto de Silva for unknown reasons! It has already been confirmed by Scott Avatar that Yamamoto's opponent in the preliminaries, Motoki Hojo, will replace him in the quarter finals. For Hojo, this is very good news and a chance for him to redeem himself after being knocked out two fights straight.

ALPHA-1: CRITICAL COUNTDOWN 2000


In a sport heavily dominated by the heavyweight fighters, the lighter fighters never seem to get their chance to shine. Well, in Alpha-1, that will all change, as many fans were enamored as 16 of the best lightweights in the world let it all hang out in their attempts to move one step closer in capturing the inaugural Alpha-1 lightweight title. We now move to the quarter finals where all 8 men involved hope to move forward into the semi-finals.

In a somewhat unsurprising twist, de Silva has once against missed weight. Edilberto de Silva, who has now come in overweight three times in a row, came in 4 pounds over the 155lb weight limit and will be forced to once again forfeit some of his purse. Alpha-1 has yet to make a statement or even mention any kind of disciplinary action, most likely due to the rising popularity of the Brazilian muay thai specialist.

When asked about the situation, de Silva's opponent in the quarter finals, Motoki Hojo, said he did not feel any way about it and said he would still win regardless.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Kitaguchi starts off strong, getting a takedown a few minutes in and spending a good amount of time on top of Candido. Using his wrestling to control Candido on the ground, he was easily able to get to mount and even take the back of Candido, all while raining down good shots. The referee would eventually stand up, but Kitaguchi was able to take it to the ground again and more of the same would occur as Kitaguchi would continue to take Candido's back numerous times and pound away. It wasn't until about 17 minutes that they would return to standing position and Candido would land a huge shot that drops Kitaguchi. He is unable to continue after a ten-count and Candido scores the come from behind victory by knockout.

Dias Candido wins by KO.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The story of this fight truly was the takedown defense of Aluizio da Assuncao. Using a sprawl and brawl tactic right from the start, Assuncao landed at will on a much smaller Fujishima. Fujishima came out quickly, looking for the takedown but was forced down and even ate some soccer kicks that looked like they would end the fight early. To his credit, Fujishima came forward the whole fight and absorbed a ton of punishment but was never successful in getting the takedown. By the halfway point, both men were exhausted and running on pure heart. With that said, Assuncao continued to land at will on a ragged Fujishima. By the last 10 minutes, it was more of the same, but not before Assuncao was able to get top position of his own after reversing a takedown from Fujishima. While it was not the most exciting fight, Assuncao proved he has the skills to compete against the elite in MMA with his combination of muay thai and defensive wrestling. He cruises his way to a unanimous decision victory.

Aluizio da Assuncao wins by a 3-0 decision.

FIGHT #3

Jeremy Douille
20
6'0"
170lbs

Strengths: Pro kickboxing experience, high level striking, underrated ground game

Ikku Funaki

15-5-0
Strengths: Heavy hands, vicious ground & pound, fast

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Many people pegged this fight to be a back and forth war between two rising prospects but it was all about Ikku Funaki. Funaki came out strong, using his speed and aggression to keep Douille from striking first. Douille would get dropped early on by a counter right, but would get up at 7 seconds. Unfortunately for Douille, this was just a preview of things to come as Funaki continued to use his speed and aggression to continue landing on him. Douille was simply unable to figure out the awkward style of Funaki and would pay dearly as he continued to eat shots throughout the early goings of the fight. Obviously having enough of the striking, Douille would look to clinch hand put Funaki against the ropes. This would prove to be his downfall, however, as Funaki would reverse the positioning and land a short uppercut that rocks Douille and allows Funaki to unload on him against the ropes for the TKO finish. Easily Funaki's best performance yet, and his second KO victory in a row.

Ikku Funaki wins by KO.

FIGHT #4

Flavio Alberto
24

Strengths: Boxing, knockout power, elusive

Jan Olav Aker

Strengths: Submissions, top control, heart

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

In what was a rather uneventful fight in the beginning, Aker seemed to be winning early on, using his grappling to counter act the striking of Alberto. As the fight went on both men became increasingly fatigued, Aker in particular, allowing Alberto to start to land with more frequency. Even still, Aker continued to use his smothering clinch work to hold Alberto against the ropes and rack up points. Around the 17 minute mark Alberto really began to find his rhythm, landing numerous combinations on the Swedish grappler. The final 10 minutes is where the fight really picked up, both men letting it all hang as they swung for the fences. By the final 5 minutes it was all Alberto as he would knockdown Aker three times in a row. To Aker's credit he got up every single time, but would continue to get outstruck until the final bell. While Aker was successful early on in stifling Alberto's boxing with his clinch work, Alberto would eventually find his rhythm and finish strong. Arguably the first half could go to Aker and the second Alberto, Alberto did more damage and was more active in the last 10 minutes than Aker was in the whole fight.

Flavio Alberto wins by a 3-0 decision.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The winner of this fight will face the winner of Harris/Hidaka in the semi-finals. Anzai came into this fight as the favorite but was stifled at every turn by Hamacho. Hamacho's takedown defense was too much for Anzai to handle, able to sprawl and wind up on top in Anzai's guard every time. Anzai attempted numerous submissions from the guard but Hamacho was vigilant and able to keep them from being locked in. They would be stood up, and from here on it was all about the kick boxing of Hamacho. Hamacho used his striking and reach beautifully, landing low kicks and stiff jabs every time Anzai looked to try and get on the inside. By 11-12 minutes in, Hamacho was on cruise control, outstriking Anzai and stuffing literally every takedown Anzai attempted. Eventally, Hamacho would stuff another takedown and wind up in Anzai's half guard but this time Anzai would be successful from his back, locking in a tight guillotine and forcing the tap from the former pro kickboxer at about 15 minutes in.

Korekiyo Anzai wins by tap out due to a guillotine choke and advances to the semi-finals.

GRAND PRIX QUARTER-FINAL #2

Fujimaro Hidaka

Strengths: Takedowns, ADCC veteran, well rounded

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The winner of this fight will face Anzai in the semi-finals. Hidaka talked very big before this fight, but from the moment the bell rang it was all about Dustin Harris who would catch Hidaka with a counter right and score a knockdown early. Hidaka would get up, but from then on it was all about the grappling of Harris who would lift up Hidaka for a crowd pleasing slam. From there, Harris would make his way to mount and rain down hard elbows, cutting Hidaka under his eyes. Opting not to possibly punch himself out as Hidaka would defend most of the strikes well, Harris spins for the armbar and gets the tap at only 4 minutes into the fight to score his second submission win in a row.

Dustin Harris wins via tap out due to an armbar and advances to face Korekiyo Anzai in the semi-finals.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The winner of this fight will face the winner of Takahashi/Dantas in the semi-finals. de Silva came into this fight overweight, missing weight three times in a row now, and the struggle to cut the weight really showed here. de Silva looked sluggish and out of it the whole fight, settling to wing big shots rather than to try to land anything accurate. While he would knockdown Hojo early with a short uppercut, he didn't go for the kill but instead took side control. While this might've been a good idea at the time, Hojo used his ground skills to reverse the position and back control on the ground where he would land some good shots to the head of de Silva. A confident Hojo would relinquish the position and from then on, it was all about Hojo's striking. Landing at will, Hojo was able to stay elusive and keep out of range of the looping hooks from de Silva. Hojo pulls off the upset, as he uses his unorthodox striking to cruise his way to a unanimous decision victory. As for de Silva, it's clear he needs to move up to welterweight where he can actually make weight. Hopefully, this disappointing performance will be the wake up call he needs.

Motoki Hojo wins by a 3-0 decision and advances to the semi-finals.

GRAND PRIX QUARTER-FINAL #4

Yoshida Takahashi
28
5'7"

Strengths: Unpredictable, leg locks, All Japan Combat Wrestling 70kg Champion

Tarcisio Dantas

3-0-0
Strengths: Wrestling, ground & pound, size advantage

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The winner of this fight will face Hojo in the semi-finals. Dantas came into this fight as a big underdog, but early on it looked as if he would score a huge upset as he would drop Takahashi with a short uppercut in the clinch. He attempted to get the armbar stoppage on a dazed Takahashi, but Takahashi stayed calm and easily escaped to get side control on Dantas. Dantas would try to sweep Takahashi, but using his ground skills, Takahashi would reverse it and take Dantas' back. From here, Takahashi easily latches on to Dantas arm and forces the tap quickly for the armbar finish. In what was easily the fight of the night, both men showed a wide array of skills, but in the end it was the ground skills of Yoshida Takahashi that would win him the fight.

Yoshida Takahashi wins via tap out due to an armbar and advances to face Motoki Hojo in the semi-finals.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

This was a classic striker vs grappler match up. The dominant submissions of Oliveira and the crisp striking of Miyazaki would both be put to the test in this middleweight match up. Surprisingly, it would be Oliveira who would initiate the striking exchange, landing a few good jabs in the process. This proved to be a bad move, however, as Miyazaki counters a jab with a huge spinning backfist that drops the Brazilian. Unable to answer the ten-count, Miyazaki forces the stoppage by way of KO and is back to his winning ways.

Tadao Miyazaki wins by KO.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The veteran in Futagawa was unable to take out the merely 2-0-0 prospect, Valdo Calamari, as he was quickly taken down after a short striking exchange. Futagawa showed a good guard at first, keeping Calamari from passing, but found himself overwhelmed as Calamari was able to mount Futagawa within seconds. Calamari took his back by reversing an attempt to sweep him and finishes it with punches from the back mount. Calamari improves to 3-0-0.

Valdo Calamari wins by referee stoppage due to punches.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

All I can say is WHAT A FIGHT! Two guys with outstanding striking, neither man backing down, the unstoppable force against the immovable object. Early on, it was Hirano who played the aggressor, outlanding Funaki and dropping him. Funaki would stand up. After this, the fight evened out and both men would spend close to 30 minutes going to war. Towards the middle of the fight, it looked like Funaki would score the victory as he dropped Hirano twice in a row. However, the toughness of Hirano would prevail as he continued to plod forward and land hard leg kicks to stifle the speed of Funaki. By the 10 minute mark, Funaki was limping badly due to the constant leg kicks from Hirano. It seemed this fight would go this distance, but with a minute left in the fight Hirano would land a hard right that staggers Funaki, allowing Hirano to unload with punches and force the stoppage. A great showing from both fighters in a fight that showcased heart, power and skill.

Fukusaburu Hirano wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

FIGHT #4

Benny Danare

17-5-0
Strengths: Great striking, well rounded, kicks

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

With Hayashi's recent submission loss, many thought that the jiu jitsu of Danare would be too much for him. The analysts were once again proven wrong as Hayashi spent pretty much the entire fight stuffing the takedowns of Danare and rocking him with hard shots. Fast out of the gates, Hayashi landed a huge flying knee and from then on he would pepper Danare with shots until he got an early knockdown. Danare got up and to his credit, continued to come forward, but he had no answer to the stand up of Hayashi. Midway through the fight, Hayashi would drop Danare two times in a row, both of them looking like he was done for. Danare's toughness is immeasurable, however, as he would get up both times. Danare looked like he might stage a comeback towards the end, scoring some takedowns and even mounting Hayashi, but was too tired to do anything significant. A gritty battle that was anything but pretty, both men looked good but Hayashi proved he was a bit too much for Danare at this time.

Fumiaki Hayashi wins by a 3-0 decision.

FIGHT #5

Nilton Fantoni
25

Strengths: BJJ black belt, wrestling, underrated striking

Gekko Goto

Strengths: Takedowns, submissions, conditioning

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Both men came into this fight as undefeated fighters with grappling backgrounds, but Fantoni proved he was light years ahead of Goto. Fantoni took down Goto early, controlling him throughout with his wrestling. While he was unable to submit Goto, Goto had no answer to the smothering control of Fantoni. Nearly all of the fight was spent on the ground, with Fantoni smothering Goto on top. Fantoni looks somewhat impressive in his Alpha-1 debut, handing Goto his first loss.

Nilton Fantoni wins by a 3-0 decision.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Mauricio came into this fight a decent amount of backing from critics, who felt his powerful stand up would allow him to end the fight early. Peltonen wasn't gonna be a stepping stone for the Brazilian prospect. Thoroughly out striking Mauricio from the opening bell, Peltonen used the jab to perfection, landing it at will. After a while, Peltonen got the takedown, found his way to mount and pounded out Mauricio to get the TKO finish.

Ari Peltonen wins by referee stoppage due to punches.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Mason was looking to get redemption after a knock out loss to Fujimoto and he certainly did that here. Using his size advantage, he spent the better part of the fight out striking Parente. He used the low kick and stiff jabs to keep Parente off balance, and prevent him from landing his heavy hands. It all came to an end about ten minutes in, as Archer would land a perfect right cross that dropped Parente. Parente, as tough as he is, could not beat the count and the fight was over.

Mason Archer wins by KO.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Van Den Hauwe, the hulking wrestler started off strong. Using his size and wrestling, he smothered Kudo against the ropes and scored some good takedowns but nothing too significant. It wasn't long until Kudo would land with a right hand that sent Van Den Hauwe to the mat, but he was able to beat the count. After this, the fight was all about Kudo. Kudo was in prime form, landing nearly everything he threw. From the opening bell he was landing the low kick and hard body shots, which helped to tire out Van Den Hauwe and keep him from being able to take Kudo down. Van Den Hauwe continued to plod forward while taking lots of shots, but never got much going either standing or on the ground.

Kojuro Kudo wins by a 3-0 decision.

FIGHT #3

Julio Correa
25
6'1'"

Hiro Arai

Strengths: Kickboxing experience, knockout power, well rounded

Both men known for their striking and heavy hands, and most fans expected a war from these two men. For the most part, that's what they delivered, but it was not for long. Arai came out aggressive, landing a hard right hand behind the ear of Correa. Correa looked hurt but continued to throw back, but was not as successful as the Japan native. Finally, at about three minutes in, both men went toe to toe and Arai would land a huge right hook that drops Correa and stops the fight in it's tracks.

Hiro Arai wins by KO.

Fujimoto came into this fight on a two-fight losing streak, both coming by way of submission. In desperate need of a win, but many people believed that Fujimoto would fall victim to the trademark rear naked choke of Vasiliev. That would not be the case tonight, as Fujimoto would knock out the Russian grappler in only 25 seconds with a massive right hand.

Gyokusho Fujimoto wins by KO.

The winner of this fight will face the winner of Hojo/Takahashi in the finals. It was a battle of the undefeated fighters, but sadly one would have to give up that status by the end of this fight. Both men so well versed in submissions that many analysts could not decide who would take this. They found out tonight as Harris would quickly get the slam takedown from the clinch, and after a few attempts found his way to the back of Anzai. Quickly getting his hooks in, he finishes Anzai with a rear naked choke in only four minutes.

Dustin Harris wins via tap out due to a rear naked choke. He advances to the finals.

The winner of this fight will face Dustin Harris in the finals. Takahashi came into the fight as the favorite, and it looked like we might see the upset as Hojo would drop him early with a front kick. Takahashi beats the count, and was a lot more tentative in the stand up than he had been before. Takahashi attempted a flying heel hook, but eventually used the position to pull guard on Hojo and finally finish the fight with a tight triangle choke.

Yoshida Takahashi wins via tap out due to a triangle choke. He will face Harris in the finals.

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The vacant Alpha-1 Lightweight Title is on the line. After numerous events, we finally were about to witness the championship bout between both of the favorites in this tournament. Two men, both renowned for their submissions and natural ability, would finally take each other on for the title. What did happened shocked analysts and fans alike, as Takahashi wasted no time getting the fight to the mat with a flying heel hook attempt. Harris, unable to stand up, was forced to pull half guard. Amazingly Harris, the 1998 ADCC 3rd place winner and jiu jitsu black belt was easily handled on the ground by the much more experienced Takahashi. After a decent amount of time, which included numerous submissions attempts, Takahashi opted to finish it with strikes as he rained down hard elbows and punches from side control to force the stoppage at the five minute mark and to win the vacant Alpha-1 Lightweight Title! Harris looked very disappointed as his 14 fight undefeated strike finally came to an end. With that said, he is easily one of the best lightweights on the planet and will no doubt get a rematch after racking up a few more wins.

Yoshida Takahashi wins by referee stoppage due to strikes and wins the inaugural Alpha-1 Lightweight Championship.

ALPHA-1: BUSHIDO 2000

Hassan Fezzik, for the duration of 29 fights, has utterly dominated the heavyweight division. Having defended his title recently against highly regarded Ari Peltonen, the question of who will face him next came up almost immediately after the fight. Long time top ranked wrestler, Kunimichi Kikuchi, was quick to volunteer to fight the undefeated Fezzik, but was met with protests by many fans and critics alike due to his grinding style. Another fighter who has step up to the plate is undefeated Brazilian fighter, Nazario Pessao. Having ended nearly every one of his fights by submission or KO, Pessao assures he could end the dominate streak of Fezzik with ease. Both Kikuchi and Pessao will face each other in a contenders fight at Bushido 2000 to determine who will face Fezzik later this year. Pessao has earned both fans and critics due to his intense, almost cocky, personality. When asked about what he thought of Kikuchi's grappling, he stated that "Kikuchi would not last a minute against one of my blue belts back in my school in Brazil". Kikuchi has yet to comment. In addition to this important contention bout, Alpha-1 has always implemented a rule change. Fighters who are knocked down are now no longer given a ten-count by the referee, and can be attacked by their opponent after being knocked down.

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The first fight of the event and it did not fail to deliver. Always tough and full of heart, Aker seemed desperate in his attempts to get the fight to the floor, but was not able to do much as Akabaro would connect with a huge right hand two minutes into the fight. Akabaro unloaded with a flurry of punches on the obviously hurt Aker, forcing the referee to stop the fight and keep Aker from taking anymore damage. Aker looked like he was on the right track after submitting highly touted Aluizio da Assuncao in his Alpha-1 debut, but has now dropped two fights in a row and is now 3-6-2 overall.

Danny Akabaro wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Two tough, well rounded grapplers who are both highly touted in their individual styles. Both men Olympic medalists, Sorkin within judo and Diev in Greco-Roman wrestling, most already knew the were in for a clinch war. While it was a bit of a stalemate for a good amount of time, Sorkin was able to get the trip from the clinch and from there quickly pass to side mount. Diev, obviously outclassed off of his back, had no answer to the smooth top game of Sorkin. It wasn't long after that Sorkin would get hold of an armbar and force the tap, finishing the fight in merely minutes.

Toby Sorkin wins by tap out due to an armbar.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

What do you get when you put two sluggers into a ring for a half an hour? You get a brawl! The muscular Singh versus the obese Bryant came out of the gates looking to land a knockout punch immediately. Bryant took many hard shots from Singh, but showed a good chin, plodding forward and landing his own. About ten minutes in, Singh was caught off guard and got dropped by a massive right hook that stunned him badly. Bryant attempted to capitalize with some hammer fists, but eventually settled for side control. By then, both men were gassed and the fight devolved into a battle of wild swinging and panting. Surprisingly, the morbidly obese Bryant was able to score the decision, most likely due to a few takedowns and knockdown he scored in the fight. Singh is now 0-2 in Alpha-1, with Bryant winning his third fight in a row.

Wally Bryant wins by a 3-0 decision.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Two men who always come to fight and they certainly lived up to the reputation tonight! Mndawe would drop Danare with a counter right hook after a failed takedown attempt, and nearly finished him with a flurry of punches on the ground. However, Danare was able to pull guard and from there quickly got hold of a leg and cranked it to submit Mndawe for the comeback victory.

Benny Danare wins by tap out due to a kneebar.

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Many critics considered this a mismatch, one side thinking Fantoni would have no answer for the takedown defense and heavy hands of Assuncao. The other feeling that Fantoni's takedowns and submissions would get him the win with ease. It turned out that the latter critics were right, as Fantoni would takedown Assuncao after grabbing a leg kick. Fantoni worked his magic, winding up taking Assuncao's back and finishing it via rear naked choke in only four minutes. Assuncao, while his takedown defense and striking are high level, needs to work on his ground skills before fighting again. Having been submitted twice in his last 3 fights, it's definitely a weakness he needs to sort out. Fantoni, on the other hand, has looked great in both of his fights in Alpha-1 and is quickly rising through the rankings.

Nilton Fantoni wins via tap out due to a rear naked choke.

FIGHT #6

Nazario Pessao

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Both of these men wanted so much to face Hassan Fezzik for the title. For a good portion of this fight, it seemed Kikuchi would be the one to do it. Easily taking Pessao at will and controlling him on top, Pessao was unable to lock up a submission from the bottom. After numerous stand ups, Kikuchi was definitely looking fatigued due to the number of takedowns and the amount of groundwork he had engaged in. After taking Pessao down and getting side control midway through the fight, Pessao easily sweeped Kikuchi and began to pound away on his gassed opponent furiously. The referee having to physically pull away the very intense Pessao, with an eleventh victory under his belt.

Nazario Pessao wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

ALPHA-1: THE TOURNAMENT

Set to have the preliminaries for the Alpha-1 Welterweight Grand Prix, the tournament will feature top ranked fighters and newer fighters alike. Staples like #1 ranked Charles Stiles, Ikku Funaki and Carlos da Guia, rising prospects such as Jeremy Douille and Simon Vine and even some imports from Alpha-1's more kickboxing centered era including Olympic TKD bronze medalist Andimba Marengo and 1994 Alpha-1 Grand Prix champion Benni Peyroux.

The hulking 6'10" Castillo against Rosa. Surprisingly, Rosa spent a good deal of this fight out striking the former pro boxer in Castillo. Using leg kicks and a stiff jab to keep Castillo from walking in with his clubbing right hook, it seemed as if Rosa had this in the bag. Unfortunately for him around the ten minute mark, Castillo would connect with a massive left hook that sent him careening to the mat. Castillo followed up with some hard ground and pound to force to stoppage. While Rosa looked good for the majority of the fight, the heavy hands of Castillo were just waiting to connect and when they did it was all over. Castillo stays undefeated and adds yet another knockout finish to his record.

Jesus Castillo wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

Ichisake Miyagi

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

The first preliminary of the welterweight tournament, and many had already picked the up and coming Valdo Calamari to take the tournament. Little attention was paid to fellow grappler and veteran of the sport, Ichisake Miyagi. Perhaps the hype just wasn't enough, as Calamari was thoroughly dominated throughout there fight, ironically enough on the mat where he generally excels. The jiu jitsu black belt and winner of numerous submission wrestling tournaments had no answer for the smothering style of Miyagi. By the ten minute mark, Miyagi had mounted Calamari and began to throw down punches. While they weren't the hardest punches, Calamari offered very little defense and never once tried to advance his position. The referee was forced to stop the bout due to punches, much to the displeasure of a very disappointed Calamari. Miyagi moves on to the quarter finals where he will face the winner of Hirano/Harrison.

Ichisake Miyagi wins by referee stoppage due to punches.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #2

Fukusaburu Hirano
25

Strengths: Well rounded, dangerous stand up, underrated ground game

John Harrison

7-1-1
Strengths: Granite chin, ground & pound, boxing

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

Many considered this fight one of the biggest mismatches of the tournament, months before the fight even happened! While both men had rather similar amount of fights, Hirano was not only undefeated but had looked amazing doing so, finishing top ranked guys left and right. While Harrison had 7 wins merely one loss, he had spent all of his career fighting on the local circuit in America before joining Alpha-1. With that said, Hirano made short work of Harrison. That's not to say Harrison was not tough. The former Marine boxing champion came out swinging, hoping to connect with a big bomb. Hirano easily avoided the strikes and was able to land some of his own, stunning and dropping the notoriously iron-chinned Harrison. From here, Hirano was able to secure the ground position and get to mount where he would fire off a flurry of punches on the stunned Harrison to force the stoppage. Hirano stays undefeated and moves to the quarter finals where he will face Miyagi, ironically enough, finishing Harrison the exact same way Miyagi did Calamari.

Fukusaburu Hirano wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #3

Chew Chua

Strengths: Thai boxing champion, knockout power, world class striking

Benni Peyroux

1-0-0
Strengths: Youngest Alpha-1 Kickboxing Champion (19), savate champion, knockout power

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

If there was any fight that could ever have a clear cut winner before the fight even happened, it's this one. Highly touted kickboxing champion Benni Peyroux was granted access into the grand prix as a replacement for Edilberto de Silva, who could not participate due to an injury during training. Peyroux, while being a great stiker with a background in savate, was way in over his head. Chua, who is a Thai boxing champion, had stated before the fight that he respected Peyroux as a striker and said he wasn't sure if would be able to out strike him. How wrong could he have been. Not more than a few seconds into the fight, Chua would connect with a big right hand behind the ear of Peyroux that left him staggered. Peyroux looked like he might recover, but not before Chua got side control and began to rain down hard punches, elbows and knees to the face of the French kickboxing champion. The fight was over almost as soon as it started. In one of the worst mismatches this sport has ever seen, many fans and critics are now questioning the ethics of Alpha-1. This was a lose-lose fight for Chua, other than the fact he moves on in the tournament. He will face the winner of Ming/Eliot in the quarter finals.

Chew Chua wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #4

Xie Ming
31

Strengths: Conditioning, good in the clinch, low kicks

Zeke Eliot

Strengths: Takedowns, top control, ground & pound

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

On a card FULL of mismatches, it was easy picking for fans betting on the fights. When it came down to the 24 fight veteran Ming taking on the newcomer in 1-0 Eliot, many fans knew which fighter to pick. On paper, Eliot was outmatched every where this fight could go. But, mixed martial arts is a sport practically built on unexpected twists and this is easily one of them. Throughout the fight, Ming controlled the stand up. He didn't land anything too hard, but was using the leg kicks to keep Eliot off balance and using his jabs to keep range. However, Eliot was able to use his high level wrestling to take Ming down and hold him there numerous times. While the first few times, they eventually were stood back up, the last time was where this fight really got interesting. Eliot was able to grab hold of a body kick and use it to take Ming down into half guard. From there, he would find his way from side control to mount in a matter of seconds. With mount, Eliot used his top control and power to ground and pound his way to a TKO stoppage nearly ten minutes into the fight. A huge upset and a great start for Eliot, who was able to beat the #14 ranked Ming decisively. On the other hand, Ming's stock just went down very, very quickly. As they say, style make fights, and Eliot's style helped to earn him his place in the quarter finals against Chew Chua.

Zeke Eliot wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #5

Ikku Funaki

Strengths: Taekwondo Olympian, knockout power, elusive

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

47. That is the mount of low kicks Marengo would land in this fight. 47 scything low kicks that damaged Funaki's leg so badly he had to be carried out of the ring by his corner. Funaki, the man who knocked out Carlos da Guia and Jeremy Douille and showcased heavy hands, elusiveness and all around creative striking. Rumor has it that Funaki was very ill throughout the training camp and struggled to make weight. While there could be many reasons why a tough veteran like Funaki was dominated from bell-to-bell by a new comer like Marengo, all that really matters is that it happened. Marengo used the aforementioned leg kick through out the whole fight, countering the unusually sluggish Funaki with it at every turn. Early on Marengo even dropped Funaki, mounted him and even took his back. While Funaki's loss was very disappointing to the home crowd, Marengo showed that is not your average taekwondo practitioner and can grapple and strike with the best of them. He moves on to the quarter finals to face the winner of Vine/Bunya.

Andimba Marengo wins by a 3-0 decision.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #6

Simon Vine

9-0-0
Strengths: Takedown defense, striking, unorthodox

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

A rather boring fight compared to the last few. Bunya's flashy kicks and punches were fun for a while, but after a few minutes or so seemed to be merely flashy and nothing else. Bunya landed numerous shots to the jaw of Vine, but was unable to phase the Canadian grappler. While Bunya was rather ineffective, at least he was trying. Vine seemed lost, unable to figure out how to deal with the speed and unorthodox style of his opponent. A lot of the time he found himself just walking forward attempting to grab a hold of Bunya, eating numerous shots in the process. Bunya would cruise to a unanimous decision victory, but neither man put on a very good showing. He will face Marengo in the quarter finals.

Kafu Bunya wins by a 3-0 decision.

GRAND PRIX PRELIMINARY #7

Strengths: Granite chin, muay thai, boxing

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

A very evenly matched fight from the get go. While Douille is a taekwondo black belt, it was Tan who came into the fight with the intention of utilizing leg kicks. Douille was more content to just box. It was somewhat evenly matched, however Tan seemed more comfortable in the stand up while Douille went for takedowns as well as striking. One of these failed takedowns giving Tan the opportunity to unload with soccer kicks. Douille would survive and the fight would go back to standing. After some more tactical striking and clinch work, Douille would connect on a perfectly timed right hook, dropping Tan in the process. Douille followed him to the ground, unloading with elbows and punches from side control. A stunned Tan was unable to deal with the strikes and the referee was forced to stop the bout. Douille redeems himself for his last knockout loss, and will move onto the quarter finals to the face the winner of Stiles/da Guia.

Jeremy Douille wins by referee stoppage due to strikes.

__________________________

The bell rings, signaling the beginning of the fight.

da Guia came into this fight on a two fight losing streak, both by knockout against men many would say he should have ran right through. The former top ranked welterweight was undefeated just a year ago, but has since dropped out of the rankings due to these losses. His opponent was on the other side of the spectrum: The #1 welterweight on the planet and former GAMMA welterweight champion who was on a nice winning streak. Many saw this as a warm up bout for the debuting Stiles. The fight started out slow, both men feeling each other out. Rightfully so, da Guia the world class striker and Stiles, a world class grappler. For nearly a minute, both men circled, looking for an opening to strike. It would be da Guia who would strike first, and fortunately for him, it would be his last. Connecting on a flashy axe-kick nearly a minute in, da Guia knocked out Stiles cold and finished the fight with a bang. Not many gave da Guia a chance, but he showed that he is not a warm up fight for any man. He will face Jeremy Douille in the quarter finals. Stiles, who came into the fight severely underweight, should move down to lightweight where he could most likely get a title shot fairly quickly, given his status as the former GAMMA welterweight champion.

Jeremy Douille wins by KO.

QUARTER FINAL BRACKET


Ichisake Miyagi vs Fukusaburu Hirano
Chew Chua vs Zeke Eliot
Andimba Marengo vs Kafu Bunya
Jeremy Douille vs Carlos da Guia

With many of the favorite fighters to win the tournament having already been eliminated including former #1 welterweight Charles Stiles, this tournament is already shaping up to be one full of excitement and drama. Not only were many of these favored fighters eliminated in the opening round, many of them were defeated by lesser known fighters. While the tournament's bigger names have been eliminated so far, it will still be exciting to see who will edge out the rest for the Alpha-1 Welterweight title. Will it be with methodical, grinding style of Ichisake Miyagi, the pin point striking of Carlos da Guia or the flashy unorthodox style of Kafu Bunya? Will the lesser known newcomers such as Andimba Marengo or Zeke Eliot shock the world and defeat seasoned veterans to win the tournament? Many can speculate, but no one will know until the fights actually happen. Stay tuned for more events in the coming months.
