Luta Livre and Kaobon are 100% again.

Luta Livre had a great night last saturday (August 8th) when was represented by 4 fighters from Team Kaobon at the Olympian MMA Championship. The first to get in the cage was Pietro Menga. Menga started very agressive, using low and high kicks. After going to the ground Menga managed to get a perfect armbar scoring the first Luta Livre victory at 1:25 of the first round. The second to fight was Uche Ihiekwe. Uche used a great combination of knees forcing Keith Fowles to give up at 3:10 of the first round. Greg Severs was the third Luta Livre fighter in the cage, and after just 1:07 of the first round, Greg scored another victory by submission via guilotine. The last one to represent Luta Livre was Lee Chadwick. Facing the dangerous Shaun Lomas , Lee needed only 0:23 to knock Shaun down with a left hook and submit him with a rear naked choke. Kaobon showed why is being named as one of the best teams in Europe.
