Two Kaobon fighters entered the octagon knowing a win would see them leave as champions.Mark Adams won his fight by unanimous decision against Alan Omer & Rob Sinclair defeated Daniel Weichel in the first round by TKO due to strikes.Carl Noon further highlighted Kaobons rise as potentially one of the best gyms in the UK with a submission win 3.48 into round one with a rear naked choke. Mark Adams improves his professional record to 6-0 Rob Sinclairs to 9-2 and Carl Noon to 6-1.
Terry Etim & Joe Lauzon may well face each other in battle in Boston at UFC 118 as J-Lau verbally agreed to fight Etim. This will be a interesting fight for Etim who will be looking to get back to winning ways after his loss at UFC 112 to Rafael Dos Anjos in Abu Dhabi. A test for Etim as Lauzon has been around for a while with an impressive record of 18-5 a win against former world champion Jens Pulver is surely the highlight of his career.It will be interesting to see who wins as Etim has beaten Sam Stout by unanimous decision & Sam Stout has beaten Joe Lauzon by unanimous decision this shows the unpredictability of the Ultimate Fighting Championships.
Kaobon fighter Paul "tellys" Kelly and American Jacob "christmas" Volkmann have recently been matched up to fight in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on July 3rd. Both fighters coming into this fight after wins in their previous fights with Kelly winning with a guillotine choke against a tough fighter in Matt Veach, Volkmann winning against Ronnys Torres by split decision. The fight is sure to be explosive as both fighters will be aiming for another win and another rise through the ranks of the lightweight division this could potentially fight of the night.

Another Kaobon fighter has joined the UFC; Paul Sass signs a 4 fight contract and is set to feature on the undercard in London when the Ultimate Fighting Championships return to England. This was more a matter of time due to Sass improving his record at OMMAC 4 to 10-0 with an impressive heel hook. Can he join the likes of Etim, Kelly & Taylor when he steps into the Octagon in October?
