LUTA LIVRE UPDATE!
During the months of November/December a lot of MMA action has occured including some great luta livre from Kaobon fighters from the likes of Paul Sass against Mark Holst with another impressive triangle finish on his debut in the UFC. You could see the nerves as he pulled guard several times however, this was to work to his advantage due to Holst being a good striker. Sass finishing within the first round and with this a submission of the night bonus. Another fighter who has been improving in Luta Livre was Paul Kelly with a great stoppage due to ground and pound after he got a crucifix on the taller opponent T.J Obrien who has a really outstanding record especially from the mat submitting 15 of his 16 opponents who he has beaten 11 by triangle, a real accomplishment by Kelly showing how good he really is after his loss to Jacob Volkmann.
Team Kaobons Mark Scanlon made his UFC debut but it didn't go the way he wanted it to losing by decision however, he can take heart from his performance with some outstanding strikes landing perfect on the tough Germans chin not losing his cool despite Krauss still standing he managed to take Krauss down despite his great wrestling background. This fight would turn out to be fight of the night as both fighters put on a great show. Also Paul Taylor lost against Sam Stout a close fought fight either fighter could of walked away with the victory but it was Stout who took the big W and improved his record.
Another Two Kaobon fighters were in action on the OMMAC both showing there dominance in there divisions at Featherweight & Lightweight. Uche Ihiekwe improved his professional record to 3-0 with a finish to remember with some vicious g+p in the first against a good opponent who has a wrestling background taking his opponent down and exploding with vicious elbows from the top. Greg Severs another unbeaten professional from Team Kaobon defeated his opponent with some ground and pound late in the second round improving his record to 2-0.
