Still undefeated. Improving to 8-0 — Ciryl ‘Bon Gamin’ Gane scores his fifth promotional victory, taking home a dominant unanimous judging win over monstrous striker, Jairzinho ‘Bigi Boy’ Rozenstruik.

A lot of feints and pops from the shoulders of Ciryl Gane to get the first round started, before he fires off a lightening fast southpaw jab — grabbing Rozenstruik’s attention, who as usual, looked to play counter. Decent left hand for Rozenstruik lands after he briefly catches a body kick attempt from Gane. Faking another body kick, Gane launched a solid straight right hand before closing the distance and clinching. Takedown secured for Gane, however, Rozenstruik retains his full guard before closure of the opening round. 10-9 Gane.

Patience opening to the second again from Gane while Rozenstruik continues to attempt to fire off counter shots. Rozenstruik then rushes forward with Gane level changing, circling and putting the Suriname native back on the fence before almost scoring a stunning outside trip takedown. Another 10-9 for Gane. Rozenstruik yet to find his mark with any substancial counters.

A tad more lively midway through the third with both Rozenstruik and Gane trading for a moment in the middle of the Octagon. Gane working well from his southpaw right side, bouncing well on the balls of his feet and mixing up his strikes. 10-9 again for Gane who is utilizing his movement well to evade some counters from Rozenstruik, although, they are coming few and far between.

Jump knee to the body for Gane finds it’s target on the right hand side of Rozenstruik’s midsection — with the latter still yet to get out of the starting blocks at all really here in the fourth. Another knee entry from Gane catches Rozenstruik just above the cup it seems, however, we get a brief stoppage in the action. Another 10-9 for Gane who scores a decent check left hook at the fence before the klaxon. Rozenstruik in need of a finish here.

Briefly taking Rozenstruik’s back in a less than eventful round, Gane took the final round with another 10-9 — scoring a dominant 50-45 unanimous decision victory.

Below, check out the highlights from Gane’s striking masterclass win over Rozenstruik.

Walker Brown, the MMA-trained guy who beat up Oklahoma Sooners football player Spencer Jones has launched a GoFundMe page to help pay for legal and medical fees relating to the incident.

For anyone that missed. Footage emerged online of an altercation between Jones, and three other parties inside a restroom at a bar, with the scuffle breaking out onto the floor of the restroom as bystanders attempted to evade the fracas. 

Whilst it’s unknown why the altercation began, Jones and what appears to be a friend of his appear to push Brown after shouting get the f**k out of here bitch, look at me bitch — resulting in the latter firing shots toward Spencer. Check out the video below.

Brown was hailed a hero online for beating up the brash Footballer. He has now taken to GoFundMe to react to the incident for the first time and ask for support during this period, he wrote.

“Hi everyone. I am the guy in the bathroom fight video. I have laughed with the funny comments about my cowboy boots and cauliflower ear. I have not commented because there is an on-going investigation. I have been advised to get an attorney. I am also facing a surgery from an injury I received while defending myself and will be looking at some unplanned medical bills and time off of work recovering from the surgery. I am a full-time student who works two jobs.

“First, I would like to thank you all for the generous support that I have received from all over the country. It is overwhelming in a good way! Strangers have even offered to help me cover the costs of defending myself and so I have set up this account for anyone who would like to contribute. I feel awkward doing this because I want to work and pay my own bills, but I am realizing that may be difficult for a little bit. I will say that YES, there was something that occurred prior to the start of the video as my nose doesn’t bleed for no reason. After I hire an attorney, I will make a statement so you will know my side of the story. Thank you again for all of the support.”

Zuluzinho

PRIDE FC veteran Zuluzinho fell to his tenth career defeat in Russia on Monday.

The 42-year-old faced off against Yusup Shuae who entered the bout unbeaten, with a record of 5-0-1.

Zuluzinho weighed just under 400lbs for the bout but that didn’t stop him from getting off to a good start.

The Brazilian landed big early and was able to drop Shuae.

The referee stepped in to separate the fights. Zuluzinho began to wildly celebrate before it was made clear he had not won the fight and the referee had only stepped in to call an end to the round.

Zuluzinho ultimately went on to drop to a majority decision defeat.

Prior to this bout Zuluzinho was riding an impressive three-fight win streak under the Megdan Fighting banner.

The former Pride fighter scored first round knockout wins against Aleksandar Aleksic, Marko Djordevi and Aleksandar Aleksic.

Zuluzinho started his career with seven straight wins before stepping up to elite level competition.

He would then lose three consecutive fights against Fedor Emelianenko, Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira and legendary boxer Butterbean.

The Brazilian would go on to have mixed results in his future fights before walking away from the sport in 2010.

Eight years later he returned to fighting and lost against Edvaldo de Oliveira but that didn’t deter the veteran who has won three of the five fights he’s had since coming back.

An OU football player, Spencer Jones is currently recovering from eye-surgery following an altercation with a ten-year trained mixed martial arts fighter in a restroom of a Campus Corner bar last weekend. 

Footage emerged online of an altercation between Jones, and three other parties inside a restroom at a bar, with the scuffle breaking out onto the floor of the restroom as bystanders attempted to evade from the fracas. 

Whilst it’s unknown why the altercation began, Jones and what appears to be a friend of his appear to push the trained fighter in question after shouting “get the f**k out of here bitch, look at me bitch” — resulting in the latter firing shots toward Spencer. In the almost one-minute video below, the party wearing a denim jacket attempts to pull the fighter off of Spencer, before he is himself involved in an altercation with another man wearing a beanie hat. 

Suplexing Jones onto the floor of the restroom, the fighter then assumes back control, before attempting to set up a rear-naked choke, with a bystander filming quipping “oh the guillotine, the rear-naked choke — tap out motherf**ker“.

The unnamed party wearing the denim jacket is then taken down by the man wearing a beanie hat, appearing to hit his head on the partition between the cubicle stall and wall, with the latter throwing multiple strikes toward his head before the video comes to an end. 

Jones, a wide receiver and holder has been described as a “superb kid” in an OU Daily Sports report, claiming “he didn’t deserve this“. The report goes on to detail how Jones is currently recovering from surgery on his left eye, and how the Oklahoma native is “lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether“. As of writing, it is currently unknown if any charges have been pressed against the two other parties involved in the altercation.

Derrick Lewis has once more upset the odds — stopping the incredible run of the #2 ranked Curtis Blaydes via a massive second round uppercut knockout.

Opening with a low kick to the lead of Lewis, Blaydes almost paid the price closing range early — with the New Orleans native firing back in the pocket. Pressuring Lewis back to the fence, a cautious, measured Blaydes was dominating the Octagon in the early goings.

Finding his mark with a right hand, Blaydes punished a wild, swinging Lewis. Landing an inadvertent eye-poke, Lewis and Blaydes seen a brief stoppage in the action before the end of the round.

Successfully defending an early round shot from Blaydes, Lewis was warned by referee, Herb Dean to keep his hands closed to avoid eye-pokes. Launching a massive upper-cut on Blaydes’ next entry for a takedown, Lewis sent the Elevation Fight Team mainstay to the canvas out cold — landing two subsequent punches before Dean could separate the two. An incredible twelve Octagon knockout win for Derrick Lewis.

Aspinall

Usually capable of stopping his opponent with his hands, in relatively timely fashion to boo, Team Kaobon mainstay, Tom Aspinall grabs a career-highlight victory over former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski — submitting the veteran with a second round rear-naked choke.

Improving to 10-2 professionally and 3-0 in the UFC, scoring finishes in each of them — the Wigan native landed some notable damage in the opening round on the feet, splitting the Belarusian’s nose in the early goings. Appearing quite strong in the clinch, Aspinall utlisied the fence to control Arlovski for the majority of the opening frame.

Shooting with a somewhat surprising double-leg early in the second, Aspinall pushed Arlovski back to the fence again, before taking his back with ease, slipping in a swift rear-naked choke and forcing the tap.

Whilst admitting event headliners, Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis are above him, Aspinall noted his interest in facing the winner of tonight’s scrap between Chris Daukaus and Aleksei Oleinik.

Below, catch the highlights from Aspinall’s third Octagon victory since his debut last summer.
