Warrior featherweight champ Patricio “Pibble” is around Freer’s waist, and is set after the other bracket of promotion semifinals at the featherweight Grand Prix Warrior 252.
Freer knocked Pedro Carvalho At the 2:10 mark of Thursday’s first round at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Un’s Uncasville. The two-division champ set a devastating tone at the start with heavy counters before finishing work with the left count-straight right combo. Carvalho crashes into the mat.
“It’s almost impossible to stand with my right hand on my chin, I know it,” said Freer, who went on to win the 1 million 145-pound tournament. Emmanuel Sanchez, He defeated in 2018 by a unanimous decision. The other bracket looks AJ McKee Square off with Dorian Caldwell.
Sanchez outscored Weechel to earn his second crack at Freer, which has a light title.
“He was tough,” Freer said after his win and before looking back with his former opponent. “I hope. He’s more dynamic, so I can not wait to fight him again.”
Freer almost got a guillotine choke after landing one of his devastating counters early in the fight, but rival Jim SBG Ireland’s product Carvalho scrambled freely and returned to his feet. The second big shot was clear that Carvalho would not be against Frere’s power, but he emphasized the issue and paid a lot.
“Pitbull” has now won seven of eight since Featherweight regained the title Daniel Strauss In 2017.
Amosov caught 0 – just
The man who was advertised as the fighter with the best current record in the MMA had a lot of damage in the headliner of Warrior 252. But in the end he saved his resume start.
Yaroslav Amosov Reached 25-0 after winning the split call Logan Storley, Put him in serious trouble in the last moments of their three-round fight. If not for some nimble hand fight, Amosov appeared to be on his way to the blackout, with Storley getting away with several back-naked choke attempts.
Submissions were Storley’s last move after a rough second round, in which he was tired after D’Arz Chowk’s attempt from Amosov, ducking most of his fight and escaping the opponent’s lesser attempts. Storley had Amosov at his heels, but was unable to dominate the exchanges as much as he would have liked and a late shot in the middle frame injured his back.
The final scorecards matched Amosov 29-28 times by a judge 29-28 to Storley, who suffered the first pro loss of his career after 12 excursions.
Sanchez avenges the loss, making progress in the tournament
Judges were again required at the second meeting between Daniel Weichel And Emmanuel Sanchez. But this time, there was a different winner, and it was a unanimous decision.
Sanchez’s speed and volume could not surpass Weechel, and the scorecards came in unison in his favor by 49-45, 49-45, 49-45 tally. The victory not only avenged the split-call loss in 2016, but also sent Sanchez to the Federweight Grand Prix semifinals.
Coming into WeCheal scorecards is also a miracle. The series of body shots in the second round brought Vince first appearance and then an involuntary trip to the mat. Sanchez missed, and Weichel took a warning from the referee at one point. But Weichel put it back on his feet and kept slugging.
This is not to say that Weichel is not effective in moments. His straight punches repeatedly found their target on the more free-wheeling Sanchez. There is not enough of them in the volume or power to capture the moment in his favor. Sanchez continued combinations using a kick-heavy attack to move an opponent in the third round.
Weechel hung on for the beloved life in fourth place to slow down Sanchez and he tried his last charge as time went on. But the last hour served as a punctuation for Sanchez’s victory.
