Canadian Tournament Combat 5: The Default World Comes To Canada


Recommended Posts

OOC: So...I will be discontinuing Canadian Tournament Combat 4. After being away from it for around a year, I'm just having trouble getting back into it again. Instead I will start fresh, with the same promotion, but returning to the Default database. Hopefully you will enjoy.

 

As mentioned I will be using the default database, edited to add my promotion, and give myself a contract with every active fighter in the game world. I also added two CTC owned broadcasters, one for Pay-Per-View and one for Television that broadcast in Canada (Big), America (Medium), Mexico (Small), and Africa (Tiny). I also gave myself contracts with broadcasters around the world, mostly small regional level broadcasters, some of which I may lose because of the lack of star power in the opening round of the championship tournaments.

Thanks to Iceisle for creating the awesome Canadian Tournament Combat Promotional Logos!

 

 

 

 

Rules: All bouts will be contested in the confines of a cage. Normal fights will consist of 5x5min rounds. Non-Title Main Events will consist of 9x5 minute rounds. Title Fights will consist of 12x5min rounds. Anything that can be set to legal is including elbows, knees to the head of a downed opponent, and soccer kicks.

 

Format: TV shows will be mainly tournament and title fights, along with a preliminary card, they will occur on a weekly basis when in season (and no complications occur), and I will try to have seasons completed between January and April, and July and October for two seasons each year. There will also be a Spring Series, and Winter Series in between seasons, featuring smaller 4 man tournaments, once all the initial Championship Tournaments are out of the way. I will be being consistent with which weight classes tournaments will be contested each season (I will be running with a whopping 12 weight classes), with odd numbered seasons (starting with the upcoming first season) featuring tournaments at Womens Flyweight, Womens Featherweight, Featherweight, Welterweight, Light Heavyweight, and Heavyweight, while even numbered seasons will feature tournaments at Womens Bantamweight, Bantamweight, Lightweight, Middleweight, Cruiserweight (206-235 lbs), and Super Heavyweight.

 

Pay-Per-Views will be 20 fight marathons designed to keep fighters not participating in the tournaments busy. There will be a pay-per-view each month, which centers around one weight class. The centerpiece of each pay-per-view will be an eight man, one night tournament, usually for young up and comers, with the winner getting a spot in the next tournament at his weight class. Then there will be other one-off non-tournament fights, usually the majority, if not all of the fights on the pay-per-view will be from the one weight class.

 

 

This will be the regular format once the initial Championship tournaments are done.

 

Every fighter in the world fights for my promotion and will have a chance (no matter how small) to win the title in their weight class.

 

The intial championship tournaments will feature every fighter in that weight class in the database in a single elimination tournament. The winner of each tournament will become Champion.

 

Each defeated fighter will be fired, until the field is paired down to 32 fighters in each weight class (though I do reserve the right to retain the services of Canadian fighters, no matter how they do in the tournament).

 

The round of 32 participants in each tournament, plus any Canadian fighters I wish to keep will comprise the opening roster of the promotion for when my normal tournament format takes over after the intial tournaments are done.

 

The start of each of the tournaments will be staggered so that they all finish at the same time.

 

 

Starting Round of 256

 

Light Heavyweight (162 fighters)

Lightweight (239 fighters)

Featherweight (155 fighters)

Welterweight (214 fighters)

Middleweight (208 fighters)

 

Starting Round of 128

 

Womens Bantamweight (71 fighters)

Womens Flyweight (70 fighters)

Heavyweight (123 fighters)

Cruiserweight (71 fighters)

Super Heavyweight (98 fightrers)

 

Starting Round of 64

 

Bantamweight (55 fighters)

Womens Featherweight (54 fighters)

 

 

 

Tournament Seeding

 

The rules for seeding in the tournaments are as follows. The top 25 world ranked fighters in the weight class will be given the first 25 seeds based on their ranking. I used an unedited version of the database to come up with the seeding. After the world ranked fighters, I go to promotional rankings, where the bigger promotion you fight for, and the higher your rank in that promotion the higher your seed is. Promotions will be split into "popularity groups" as shown below. Fighters with the same rank in promotions in the same popularity grouping will be placed randomly in the next seeds in the bracket. Any fighters fighting for promotions, but unranked are seeded after ranked fighters. After all employed fighters were ranked, the unemployed fighters were put into a random list generator and randomly assigned the remaining seeds. The Heavyweight and Cruiserweight Divisions were both ranked together, and then split on a hard line, with fighters whos "Best Weight" in the editor is 235 or lower going to the Cruiserweight Division, and those whos weight was 236 and over going to the Heavyweight Division. All fighters were entered in the tournment of their natural weight class (The one listed on their profile). If they are ranked in another division (For instance Gary Sampson is ranked at Super Heavyweight, but listed on his profile as Heavyweight), they will be entered into the ranking at the end of the category that they are entered at in the division they are ranked in.

 

If I made any mistakes in the seedings I have not detected it, and it is now too late and everything's booked, and anyone who got screwed over will be screwed over.

 

The next post will contain the complete seedings, and brackets for the Championship Tournaments.

 

 

 

This first post will be kept updated with Champions and Title Histories if you are ever interested.

MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Alex "Master Blaster" Maitland (2-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #104, Even: -110) vs. Russell "Russell Mania" McPhee (20-8, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #153, Even: -110)

 

Out of the 17 bouts on this card, this battle between two Canadians seemed like to most fitting main event for the first show of Canadian Tournament Combat. A battle of youth vs. experience, with 18 year old Alex Maitland, a student of Shaolin Kung Fu, with just a couple fights on local shows under his belt, who loves to stand and bang, and is known for his vicious leg kicks taking on a consummate veteran of the sport, Russell McPhee, heading toward the end of his career, who is a vicious kick boxer in his own right. This should be an explosive striking affair, and the winner will have the honor of facing #25 ranked Lawrence Herringbone in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "Wild Thing" Justin Brannagh (8-3, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #128, Favorite: -190) vs. "The Street Fighter" Leon Banks (32-15, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #129, Underdog: +150)

 

Justin Brannagh is a wrestler, who likes to use high pressure tactics to force grappling exchanges with his opponents, however he lacks the ability to finish fights, a problem his opponent doesn't possess. Leon Banks is a boxer, who has been around the MMA game forever. His killer instinct, and massive punching power make him an ultimate finisher. His career has been stalled by several defeats, including his recent destruction by Guillermo Morales, ending his run with GAMMA. The winner of this bout will face #1 ranked Jin Katou in the Second Round.

 

 

 

MAIN CARD

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Michael Klaughnschue (8-2, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed #108, Underdog: +170) vs. Leandro Piquet (20-10, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #149, Favorite: -220)

 

Michael Klaughnschue is a German wrestler, who likes to get in close, take people down, and control them. He is short and fat, but has a naturally low center of gravity that makes him hard to take down and bully around. Leandro Piquet is a solid Muay Thai striker, known for his love of flashy, though largely ineffective strikes. He used to be considered a threat for the Light Heavyweight Title, but his 1-5 run with FLB left his career in ruins, as he tries to rejuvenate it. The winner will face #21 Nicolai Mickiewicz in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "Glorious" Joshua Hope (8-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #117, Favorite: -710) vs. Nestor "The Anvil" Morozov (25-14-1, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #140, Underdog: +560)

 

Joshua Hope was a highly regarded amateur wrestler before transitioning to MMA. He is a very good defensive fighter, hard to take down or submit, who likes to use his grappling to smother opponents. Nestor Morozov is a wily veteran, a ground and pound specialist, who is very good at using the clinch to set up takedowns, or use dirty boxing. The winner will take on #12 Aleksei Chekhov in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Toby Dingleberry (8-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #116, Underdog: +150) vs. "The Dockland Destroyer" Jerry Bogdonovich (10-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #141, Favorite: -200)

 

Toby Dingleberry has excellent takedown defence, and uses sprawl and brawl tactics to keep the fight standing, and unload with massie punching power. His ground game and offensive wrestling needs a lot of improvement. Jerry Bogdonovich is a devastating, powerful striker, who comes out swinging, and never backs down. He doesn't have much of a ground game, and could be exposed when facing higher quality opposition than he has been. The winner will face #13 Roberto Aldez in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Gustavo Spagnol (6-1, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #121, Favorite: -1200) vs. Kleber Pereira (7-6, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #136, Underdog: +950)

 

Gustavo Spagnol is one of the best ground and pound artists in the world, his tactics revolving around getting his opponent to the ground, and destroying him with heavy strikes from on top. The rest of his MMA game is mediocre at best, but he's so good at what he does it often doesn't matter. He is coming off a massive upset victory over Pedro Sousa just before FLB closed it's doors. Kleber Pereira is a brawler pure and simple, who will stand and trade with anyone. The rest of his MMA game is nearly non-existent, so he is very vulnerable to anyone who can grapple him, or take him down. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Arkhan Gleiser that ended his 2-3 run in FLB. The winner of this fight will face #8 Lenny McFadden in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Trevion Chymes (14-13, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #120, Underdog: +470) vs. Magno Peres Arruda (10-4, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #137, Favorite: -590)

 

Trevion Chymes is a distinctly underwhelming fighter, a ground and pound specialist, whose awful striking caps his largely subpar arsenal. Magno Peres Arruda is a good striker, known for his powerful kicks. He can cause anyone problems in a stand-up battle, but has a complete inability to cope with grappling or Jiu Jitsu. He is coming off a 50 second TKO (Cut) victory over veteran Leadro Piquet in FLB. The winner of this fight will face #9 Sho Kitabatake in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Pedro "Homicide" Sousa (21-5, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #105, Favorite: -900) vs. Edward Zahn (11-9, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #152, Underdog: +710)

 

Pedro Sousa is a very dangerous striker, once one of the top Light Heavyweights in the world. "Homicide" was noted for his killer instinct and ability to finish opponents. His career has taken a recent downturn, with several damaging losses, including his Split Decision loss to Gustavo Spagnol in his final FLB fight, damaging his momentum, and comes to the CTC looking to get his career back on track. Edward Zahn is a very limited fighter. He can hit hard if given the chance to load up, but he has such a poor all around game that most opponents will have plenty of ways to beat him without standing and trading. The winner of this fight will face #24 Tikhon Diev in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Roughneck" Cal Hillson (6-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #101, Underdog: +390) vs. Arthur Franco (12-8, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #156, Favorite: -490)

 

Cal Hillson is a rugged fighter, a brawler whose iron chin and ability to withstand punishment allows him to get in close and swing for the fences, no matter who his opponent is. Arthur Fraco is also a rugged fighter, who uses wrestling as his base, and has decent skills in stand-up and submissions. He was with FLB from it's birth to it's demise, but his poor 3-5 record is a good indication of his skill level. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Nilton Fantoni. The winner will face #28 Derek South in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Koenraad Belien (9-6, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #97, Favorite: -1090) vs. Hardy Tristan (3-4, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #160, Underdog: +870)

 

Koenraad Belien is a ground and pound specialist, adept at stopping opponents from top position by blasting them with punches and elbows. His stand-up is limited, and probably his biggest weakness, but he has also shown vulnerability to submissions. He is coming off a run of four straight losses that ended his career with SIGMA, the last a first round TKO loss to Gavriil Sviridov. Hardy Tristan is a very limited slugger, who relies entirely on is big punches and strong chin. He has no background, and no clue, to his wrestling or ground game. The winner will face #32 Ryosei Sakamoto in the Second Round.

 

 

 

PRELIMINARY CARD

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Oscarino Baptista (21-12, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #96, Favorite: -460) vs. Michael "Salvador" Dali (0-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #161, Underdog: +350)

 

Oscarino Baptista is a slightly refined street fighter, his main, and possibly only threat coming from his fists as he takes wild swings at his opponents. His sheer toughness has allowed him to build a solid record on local shows around Brazil. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Marcos Maciel in FLB. Michael Dali earned his stripes in prison, and in bare knuckle boxing. He recently transitioned to MMA, and with his infamous name, and the right training he could round into a good fighter, but is not the finished article right now. The winner will face #33 Ricky Heath in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Pete "The Pete Train" Shilton (11-5, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #112, Even: -110) vs. "The Battering Ram" Andranik Paletilolu (16-10, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #145, Even: -110)

 

Pete Shilton is a big, burly brawler, primarily noted for being able to withstand a lot of punishment, and being difficult to stop, but he doesn't have a lot of ways to dish out punishment. Andranik Paletilolu looks like a washed up fight, with a belly, and looking like he is going through the motions, however he is tough as old leather, has surprising cardio, and strikes with power. He is coming off a 2-6 run with SIGMA that ended in a Unanimous Decision loss to Rens De Beus. The winner will face #17 Curt Kitson in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Makhak "Thunder" Kirakosyan (7-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #124, Favorite: -250) vs. Denilson da Cunha (11-6, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #133, Underdog: +190)

 

Makhak Kirakosyan is a tall fighter from Armenia, a former amateur boxer, with good hands at his disposal, and the reach advantage over most fighters that makes him hard to deal with. Denilson da Cunha is a one-dimensional brawler, who doesn't offer much of a threat. He was with FLB for several years, compiling a 2-5 record, and is coming off a first round TKO loss to Rubenilson Augusto. The winner will face #5 Zvonimir Asanovic in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Priti Manek (7-3, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #109, Underdog: +140) vs. Juan Puga (13-10, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #148, Favorite: -180)

 

Priti Manek is a decent all-rounder, originally a kickboxing specialist, who is noted for his frenetic attack style, swarming his opponent with strikes in an all-out blitz. Juan Puga is also a decent all-rounder. He is talented, but has always been held back by his inability to take a punch. The winner will face #20 Elgar in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Jericho Stewart (7-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #100, Favorite: -340) vs. "Intensity Personified" Logan Sky (8-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #157, Underdog: +270)

 

Jericho Stewart is one of the most powerfully built Light Heavyweight's around. Very few people want to stand with him due to his quick hands and knock out power, but taking him off is feet is a tough task with his great sprawl and sheer physical strength when grappling. Logan Sky is a fairly high level kick boxer, who is remarkable quick on his feet for a Light Heavyweight, which means he is elusive, but always on the lookout for an opening to unload some strikes of his own. The winner will face #29 Nilton Fantoni in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "Bully Boy" Brayden Behrami (6-1, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #125, Underdog: +280) vs. Renan Heleno (2-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #132, Favorite: -360)

 

Brayden Behrami is a decent wrestler, whose favorite technique is ground and pound, but he can also grind out victories using his grappling ability to control opponents. The biggest threat to his career is himself, already gaining a reputation for being lazy and inconsistent. Renan Heleno is a dangerous submission grappler, with a high level Jiu Jitsu background, who can give anyone a hard time on the ground. He needs to round out is game, as of now he is clearly a BJJ fighter, with no skill on his feet at all. The winner will face #4 Affonso Villar in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Kunihiko "Nak" Nakazawa (0-0, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #113, Underdog: +950) vs. Carlos dos Santos (14-6, 0-0 CTC, CTC Rank: Unranked, Tournament Seed: #144, Favorite: -1200)

 

Kunihiko Nakazawa has been tipped to have a fine career in MMA, a good kick boxer, who is always in tip-top shape. Noted for having an extraordinary chin, Nak is happiest going toe to toe with his opponents. Carlos dos Santos is something of a flat-track bully, perfectly capable of handing out beatings to lesser fighters, but easily beaten when he comes up against top flight competition. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Elgar in FLB. The winner will face #16 Hyun-Shik Lim in the Second Round.

MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Adrian "The Missing Link" Swall (9-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #111, Underdog: +190) vs. "The Chunky Monkey" Allen LeFleur (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #146, Favorite: -240)

 

Adrian Swall, a big Australian grappler is a complete powerhouse fighter who boasts immense physical strength. He loves to punish opponents with his up close in you face wrestling, but can do just as much damage swinging for the fences. A fitting participant for this main event, Allen LeFleur is a Canadian with a lot of hope for a great career in MMA, originally a wrestler, LeFleur also trained in kick boxing and Jiu Jitsu when he decided to transition to MMA. He could easily fight at Heavyweight, but prefers to cut to Light Heavyweight to maximize his size advantage. The winner of this fight will face #18 Valentin Taneyev in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Tobias Goulet (17-16, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #95, Underdog: +920) vs. Silvio Leite (9-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #162, Favorite: -1160)

 

Tobias Goulet, a veteran of the Canadian regional scene has never been very good at MMA, and has gotten worse as he's aged. Nominally a striker, he lacks the power to be much of a threat even in his strongest area. Silvio Leite is a powerhouse wrestler, whose M.O. is to grab an opponent, take him down, and smother him into a decision loss. Such is his power and control that even this one-dimensional tactic is hard to counter. The winner will face #34 Osamu Dan in the Second Round.

 

 

MAIN CARD

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Judge" Joel Mankin (6-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #127, Favorite: -550) vs. Samuel "The Animal" Russo (18-13, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #130, Underdog: +430)

 

Joel Mankin is a ground and pound specialist, who comes from a wrestling back, and is currently a college wrestling coach. He has little skill in the striking game, but his hands are heavy enough to make people think twice about getting close to him. Samuel Russo is a veteran of the Canadian regional scene despite his relatively young age. He is not a pretty fighter, but has some success due to his powerful fists. The winner will face #2 Niko Soldo in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Marcos Maciel (7-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #122, Favorite: -460) vs. Andoni Olano (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #135, Underdog: +360)

 

Marcos Maciel is a high quality kick boxer, who combines great technique and power. His ground game is nothing to write home about, but he has such a great sprawl this weakness is rarely able to be exploited. He is coming off his first professional loss, a Unanimous Decision loss to Oscarino Baptista in FLB. Andoni Olano is a quality kick boxer, who can do a lot of damage in striking battle, and is known for his flashy head kicks. Where he falls down is his horrible grappling and ground game, which are easily exploited. The winner will face #7 Tadamasa Yamada in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Jon "Quick" Silvers (12-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #107, Underdog: +440) vs. Ranieri "Martelo" Fernanda (9-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #150, Favorite: -560)

 

Jon Silvers is tall for a Light Heavyweight, and uses his reach advantage to great effect to maximise his boxing abilities. He has very fast hands, and the power to do damage. He has very fast hands, and a good enough sprawl to keep away from his main weakness, being on his back. Ranieri Fernanda is a powerfully built wrestler, known for grinding out results, his biggest weakness seems to be that he finds it difficult to translate his physical domination into clean finishes. The winner will face #22 Matti Kurri in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Jethro "The Hunter" Munter (16-8, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #99, Favorite: -110) vs. Zane "The Pain" Wybock (10-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #158, Underdog: +100)

 

Jethro Munter is a powerful Light Heavyweight wrestler, who likes to take opponents down and batter them with ground and pound. His career has been blighted by injuries, and his complete inability to take a punch. Zane Wybock is a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, who has worked diligently on his stand-up. He is a servicable, if bland fighter, but probably lacks the explosiveness to truly excel at the fight game. The winner will face #30 Toby Sorkin in the next round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Drill Sergeant" Trevor Murray (27-12, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #102, Favorite: -340) vs. Brody "Crush 'Em" Howles (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #155, Underdog: +270)

 

Trevor Murray is not the most exciting fighter to watch, noted for using his wrestling skills to take opponents down, and smother his way to decision victories. It has made him pretty successful, but has not endeared him to fans, and could be the reason he hasn't had a shot with a big MMA organization before now. Brody Howles is a powerful Light Heavyweight wrestler who likes to get his opponents on their back where he can wail on them with ground and pound. His rudimentary stand up is a major weakness, as is his inability to take a punch. The winner will face #27 Ryuji Ganaha in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Petey "The Broadstreet Bully" Barnum (23-16, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #106, Underdog: +390) vs. Flavio Alberto (7-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #151, Favorite: -490)

 

Petey Barnum is a journeyman professional, who can stand and trade blows with anyone thanks to his boxing training, but has nothing else really to bring to the table. Flavio Alberto is a fighter known for his boxing abiltity and powerful left hand. He is extremely limited in other areas of MMA, but he hits so hard he can never be discounted as a threat. The winner will face #23 Faas Smit in the next round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Psychopath" Folee Caffatere (7-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #98, Underdog: +250) vs. Rubenilson Augusto (8-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #159, Favorite: -320)

 

Folee Caffatere is one of the least refined fighters in MMA, a one dimensional violent brawler, his basic strategy is to load up his big right hand, and swinger as hard as he can. Rubenilson August is a dangerous striker, known for his heavy hands. The rest of his MMA game is almost non-existent, but he can knock anyone out one swing of his big right hand. He is coming off a first round TKO victory over Denilson da Cunha in FLB. The winner will face #31 Christian Mountfield in the next round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Frankie Burgess (5-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #119, Favorite: -870) vs. Karl "K.O." Martin (3-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #138, Underdog: +690)

 

Frankie Burgess is a Muay Thai fighter, who is extremely muscular and powerful. A fearsome striker, if he can improve his ground game, he'll be a top contender. Karl Martin is one of the strongest Light Heayweights, he comes to MMA after a lengthy stint in boxing, and relies heavily on powerful punches to pick up victories. Years of boxing has also weakened his chin substantially, and he can't take a punch as well as he used to. The winner will face #10 Rafael Van Der Moot in the Second Round.

 

 

 

PRELIMINARY CARD

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Titus "The Titan" Mostel (9-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: 118, Underdog: +200) vs. Emerson Mori Nunes (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #139, Favorite: -260)

 

Titus Mostel is a striker, who likes to stand and exchange punches as much as he can. He doesn't have the tools to compete in the upper echelons of MMA, but he's a decent challenge for the lesser lights of the division. Emerson Mori Nunes is a submission wrestler. He dreadful striker, he is however extremely dangerous on the ground, especially when he goes hunting for his trademark armbar finishes. The winner will face #11 Marlon John in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Ruben Rua (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #123, Underdog: +320) vs. Wink Deschanel (8-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #134, Favorite: -410)

 

Ruben Rua is a BJJ specialist who is known for his excellent rubber guard. Not much of a striker, though he has solid enough boxing he can trade if he has to, he is nontheless deadly if he can get people to the ground and into his guard. Wink Deschanel is a good wrestler, who also has a decent boxing game. He's already a very solid fighter, what will decide is future is whether he can get his striking and grappling to the next level, or if he's already peaked. The winner will face #6 Mike Watson in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Owen Williams (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #110, Underdog: +110) vs. Brett Krakowski (6-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #147, Favorite: -200)

 

Owen Williams is a Welsh MMA fighter with a grappling background. Known for his tremendous guillotine choke, if he could improve his woeful striking he could be a real handful. Brett Krakowski is a former amateur wrestler, who like many others from his background has woeful striking that often negates his grappling advantage. The winner will face #19 Junior Patinkin in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Ricky "Pile" Driver (0-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #115, Underdog: +250) vs. Dean Capers (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #142, Favorite: -320)

 

Ricky Driver is a dangerous foe who mixes skills in grappling with heavy hands. He's not the technical fighter, and his cardio is suspect, but he'll be a major problem for a lot of fighters. Dean Capers was a star wrestler in college known for his mastery of grappling, and his ability to totally and utterly control opponents once he has a hold of them. His problem is that his striking is just as bad as his wrestling is good, and so he is a tailor made opponent for quick, elusive strikers. The Winner will take on #14 Anthony LeToussier in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Arkan Gleiser (8-5, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #126, Favorite: -470) vs. Vlasta "The Blaster" Nykl (0-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #131, Underdog: +370)

 

Arkan Gleiser is a Karate fighter from Brazil, who has decent striking game, but not much in any other areas of MMA. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Kleber Pereira in FLB. Vlasta Nykl is tall and lanky, a wild brawler, who likes to use his reach and unorthodox striking style to pepper opponents with punches and kicks before overwhelming them with rapid fire punches once they tire. The winner will face #3 Spencer Rubenstein in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Titi Stringer (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #103, Favorite: -650) vs. "Maverick" Maz Marlinspike (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #154, Underdog: +510)

 

Titi Stringer was a high-level college wrestler. His grappling and sheer athleticism are his biggest weapons, and he has picked up some solid boxing skill in a ridiculously short time. Maz Marlinspike is a kick boxer, who has no fear of standing and banging with anyone in the sport. His weak ground game, and sub-par wrestling will have to be addressed before he can make a major impact in MMA. The winner will face #26 Raul Hughes in the next round.

 

 

 

CTC Light Heavyweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Raymond "Stumpy" Rearden (0-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #114, Underdog: +400) vs. Datsakorn "Lefty" Pratoomwong (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #143, Favorite: -510)

 

Raymond Rearden is a ground and pound specialist, who likes to use his raw power to overwhelm opponents before landing bombs on the ground to finish them off. His big weakness is atrocious cardio, as he tends to tire early. Datsakorn Pratoomwong, a southpaw, hits hard, and thanks to his Kung Fu background is a versatile striker. He is big enough to fight at heavyweight, but chooses to make the cut to maximize his size advantage. The winner will face #15 Linfield Ballard in the Second Round.

Friday, Week 1, February 2002

 

 

 

MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Shizuya Nakae (28-14, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #25, Favorite: -560) vs. Chico Feijo (9-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #232, Underdog: +440)

 

Shizuya Nakae has the distinction of having been the first ever ALPHA-1 Lightweight Champion, but has since been passed by a new generation of talented fighters. He's a tough wrestler, who likes nothing more than to ground and pound his way to victory. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Naizen Hamacho in ALPHA-1. Chico Feijo is a decent BJJ competitor who can cause problems for a lot of people on the ground, but is let down by his lack of stand-up, and complete inability to take a punch. He had a 5-2 run in FLB's relatively lacklustre Lightweight Division, and is coming off a third round submission victory over Delma de Brito. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Elvis Milissis vs. Marek Warzycha.

 

 

 

CO-MAIN EVENT

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Chuck "The Joker Thug" Brown (5-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: 113, Underdog: +100) vs. Vince "The Animal" Dahl (2-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: 144, Favorite: -110)

 

Chuck Brown is a young Lightweight with good strikes, he is still maturing as a fighter, but is showing potential to be a good fighter. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Campbell Crane in XCC. Vince Dahl is called "The Animal" for his all-out attacking style, he is a takedown machine who loves to get top control, and start raining down hammerfists. The winner of this fight will face #16 Datuk Ong Ka Ting in the Second Round.

 

 

 

MAIN CARD

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Chan Kim Huat (5-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #96, Favorite: -1140) vs. Jake "Dead Man" Walken (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #161, Underdog: +910)

 

Chan Kim Huat is a dangerous submission artist who is renowned for his great guillotine choke. On the ground he is a top quality fighter, but he really needs to improve his mediocre stand-up if he ever wants to be a truly great competitor. He is coming off a first round Achilles Lock submission against Horkusai Araki in KDM FC. Jake Walken is a Canadian taekwondo fighter, a true showman in the cage, who delights in bringing the crowd to their feet with his array of flashy strikes. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Moss Gilbert vs. Vinicius Azeredo.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Aaron "The Patriot" McBroom (11-6, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #40, Underdog: +310) vs. Henry "The King" Baldwin (10-5, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: 217, Favorite: -400)

 

Aaron McBroom is a good kick boxer, who has wide variety in his strikes, always keeping his opponents guessing what he'll do next. He has developed decent grappling skills over time, but his weak ground game is his biggest flaw. In 1997 he competed against Sean Morrison for the GAMMA Lightweight Title, losing, and his career has been in a downward spiral since, and he is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Carl Chenoweth. Henry Baldwin has trained extensively in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and so poses a threat when on the ground. Over time he has worked on his stand-up and ground striking to make himself an all-around threat. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Ross Smith vs Jonjo Whiteley in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Elvis "The King" Milissis (6-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #104, Favorite: -580) vs. Marek "The Cannibal" Warzycha (10-7, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #153, Underdog: +460)

 

Elvis Milissis is a Thai Boxer, who is one of the most physically imposing Lightweights in the world. He could probably fight at Middleweight without too much trouble. He is a top quality striker who likes to used head kicks to end fights. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Steven Wu in XCC. Marek Warzycha is a wrestler from Poland who got his nickname the cannibal, because of how he eats up opponents on the ground, smothering them from top control. He'll likely never be a threat to any high level fighters, but he's good enough to be a threat on the regional circuit. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Shizuya Nakae vs. Chico Feijo.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Olafur Petursson (5-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #80, Underdog: +270) vs. Lima "Scorpio" Fraga (13-7, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #177, Favorite: -340)

 

Olafur Petursson is a kickboxer, who has decent enough strikes in his arsenal, but lacks the power to be a true threat. The rest of his MMA game beyond his stand-up is practically non-existent. He just finished a three fight stint with BCF during which he didn't pick up a win, and is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Enar Igonen. Lima Fraga is a pretty unexceptional Muay Thai fighter. He's not awful, but is not on the level of other legendary strikers that have come out of South America, and is let down by his less than solid chin. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Masayoshi Tatsuko vs. Sadakuno Katoh.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Coltrane Aaronson (7-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #97, Favorite: -910) vs. Roberto Perrella Aun (0-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #160, Underdog: +720)

 

Coltrane Aaronson is a Taekwondo fighter originally from Jamaica. He is an up and coming Lightweight known for his array of devastating kicks and quick hands. He is on a two fight win streak, and is coming off a third round TKO victory over Avery Gleason in XCC. Roberto Perella Aun is a high level kickboxer, known for his absolutely lethal head kicks. However, he is as one-dimensional as they come, and in anything other than a stand-up battle he is going to be in trouble. The winner of this fight will take on the winner of Korekiyo Anzai vs. Nshan Ramazyan.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Maurice Braudel (8-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: 65, Favorite: -110) vs. Dalmo Pedrosa (11-6, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #192, Underdog: +100)

 

Maurice Braudel was once a nationally ranked kick boxer, and his striking game is definately his strong suit. He possesses the ability to stand and bang with anyone in the world and have success, but the rest of his MMA game is very poor indeed. He is coming off a second round knock out loss to Patrik Pedersen in SIGMA. Dalmo Pedrosa is a street fighter from Brazil, who loves to load up his big right hand and let fly, but is pretty lacking when it comes to anything more than that. He does have the advantage in toughness, and ability to absorb damage. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Enar Igonen vs. Jackson Mollusck.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Cleveland Stormer" Moss Gilbert (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #33, Favorite: -210) vs. Vinicius Azeredo (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #224, Underdog: +160)

 

Moss Gilbert was a decent amateur boxer, who transitioned to MMA. His strength is his stand-up, with quick hands and good footwork making him hard to trade with, but he will need to work on his ground game, as his two pro losses (to Beau Gorshin, and Jake Keane) were both by submission. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Aaron McBroom in GAMMA. Vinicius Azeredo is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist. Although decent on the ground, his stand-up in weak, and revolves more around avoiding his opponent for takedown opportunities than doing any damage. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Chan Kim Huat vs. Jake Walken in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Ross "Harvard" Smith (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #89, Favorite: -1090) vs. Jonjo Whiteley (5-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #168, Underdog: +870)

 

Ross Smith is a Jiu-Jitsu specialist who also has an underrated striking game. He has worked hard to improve himself over the years, especially his strength and cardio. In his last fight he lost the XCC Lightweight title to Bosco Curbeam by third round knock out. Jonjo Whiteley is a kick boxer who is well known for his speed, both in terms of moving around and how fast his punches and kicks come at opponents. He is one-dimensional, but young enough to address that flaw. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Aaron McBroom vs. Henry Baldwin.

 

 

 

PRELIMINARY CARD

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Owen Oggleberry-Pipp (5-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #128, Favorite: -310) vs. Samuel Arinos (4-5, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #129, Underdog: +240)

 

Owen Oggleberry-Pipp is a decent but entirely unspectacular Canadian fighter, who offers some competent striking that can cause problems if taken lightly, but very little else, his grappling and ground game are awful. Samuel Arinos is your average everyday low level fighter. A striker who has what it takes to win at small events against limited competition, but struggles against quality competitors. The winner of this fight will face Sukarno in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Dominick Oppenheimer (6-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #72, Underdog: +420) vs. "The Jester" Ron Chuckle (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #185, Favorite: -530)

 

Dominick Oppenheimer is a highly technical striker, who uses his excellent movement to create a hit and run style of fighting. His one big weaknesses is highlighted if he does get caught, as he is vulnerable to grapplers, and can be taken apart with relative ease on the ground. He is on a three fight losing streak, and coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Rupert Lennox in BCF. Ron Chuckle is a grappler who likes to work from on top and dominate his way to decision victories. He is not the most dangerous fighter in the world, but is good enough that anyone underestimating him is likely to end up on the wrong end of an upset. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Rupert Lennox vs. Yuji Latu in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Korekiyo Anzai (9-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #32, Favorite: -1200) vs. "The Armenian Assassin" Nshan Ramazyan (8-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #225, Underdog: +950)

 

Korekiyo Anzai has the ability to stand and strike with most opponents, but is at his best when he can get the fight to the ground and use his submission skills. He has won all 9 of his professional fights, and is coming off a first round submission victory over Mikio Inouye in ALPHA-1. Nshan Ramazyan is a pure striker, who has a solid stand-up game, but virtually nothing in the way of grappling, or submission skills. He is only dangerous to people who can't, or won't stop themselves from engaging him on the feet. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Coltrane Aaronson vs. Roberto Perella Aun in the Sceond Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Estonian Hornet" Enar Igonen (6-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #64, Underdog: +190) vs. "The Bone Collector" Jackson Mollusck (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #193, Favorite: -250)

 

Enar Igonen is a kickboxer who earned the nickname "The Estonian Hornet" because of his style of constantly buzzing around his opponents with a barrage of strikes. He lacks stopping power but the sheer amount of strikes he can throw can be hard to deal with. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Olafur Petursson in BCF. Jackson Mollusck is a submission artist, a specialist in grabbing leglocks on unsuspecting foes. He can be dangerous, especially if the fight is on the floor, but his dire stand-up is a major weakness. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Maurice Braudel vs. Dalmo Pedrosa in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Rupert "Warpath" Lennox (9-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #57, Favorite: -470) vs. "The Hangman" Yuji Latu (8-6, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #200, Underdog: +370)

 

Rupert Lennox is a former English National Muay Thai Champion, and boasts crisp, powerful strikes, and a destructive clinch game, making him one of the most dangerous strikers in the Lightweight class. He can be out-wrestled and has a weakness on the floor, but he is working to improve these areas. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Dominick Oppenheimer in BCF. Yuji Latu has a wrestling background, and likes to get in close and grapple with opponents. He is at his best on the ground in top position, where he can finish with either ground and pound or submissions, but is seriously vulnerable in a striking contest. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Dominick Oppenheimer vs. Ron Chuckle in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Shigemori Sugita (3-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #121, Underdog: +340) vs. Watson Viana (8-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #136, Favorite: -430)

 

Shigemori Sugita is a former amateur boxer, who hits hard and boasts some good technique, but is entirely one-dimensional, and can be easily handled by anyone who can grapple with him. He is coming off a first round submission loss to Cong Kao in KDM FC. Watson Viana is a boxer, with fast, deadly hands that can do a lot of damage. Unfortunately he is pretty awful on his back and struggles badly to defend takedowns, and so he is really only effective against other strikers. The winner will face #8 Naizen Hamacho in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Thorvald Axelsson (4-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #81, Underdog: +340) vs. Sadahige Yoshida (6-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #176, Favorite: -430)

 

Thorvald Axelsson comes from a kick boxing background and is a competent, tidy striker. He probably lacks the finishing power to ever be truly dangerous however. He is coming off a second round submission loss to Vladimir Baskov in SIGMA. Sadahige Yoshida is a good amateur wrestler, with decent takedowns, and submissions to punish opponents once their on the ground. If he can improve his abysmal stand-up he'd be a real threat. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Yoshinori Morishita vs. Neil Entopolski in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Yoshinori Morishita (3-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #48, Favorite: -1150) vs. "The Glimmer Man" Neil Entopolski (0-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #209, Underdog: +910)

 

Yoshinori Morishita made his name when he became one of the top BJJ competitors in the world as a teenager. He recently made his debut in ALPHA-1, winning a dominant Unanimous Decision victory over Shiko Taka. Neil Entopolski is a straight-up brawler, who usually comes at his opponent hard and fast to overwhelm them with his sheer ferocity. A sturdy chin and hard right hand are his keys to victory. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Thorvald Axelsson vs. Sadahige Yoshida in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Cong Kao (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #112, Underdog: +110) vs. Chakrit Mamanee (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #145, Favorite: -140)

 

Cong Kao is a submission specialist, who is particularly noted for being good off his back, with a superb triangle choke. He is coming off a first round submission win over Shigemori Sugita in KDM FC. Chakrit Mamanee is a powerfully built Lightweight, who is very dangerous on the ground as he has both the power to blast opponents away and the skills to tap them. Always in peak condition, he is a very tough fighter to stop. The winner of this fight will face #17 Caca de Andrade in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Masayoshi "Fireball XXL" Tatsuko (4-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #49, Favorite: -310) vs. "The Assassin" Sadakuno Katoh (21-17, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #208, Underdog: +240)

 

Masayoshi Tatsuko is a Muay Thai striker, a dangerous fighter known for his vicious leg kicks. He made his ALPHA-1 debut in August, being outstruck in a Unanimous Decision loss to Fujimaro Hidaka. Sadakuno Katoh is a journeyman professional, a kick boxer, who has decent hands and some good kicks, but ultimately presents little knock out threat, and the rest of his MMA game is threadbare. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Olafur Petursson vs. Lima Fraga in the Second Round.

(Rd 4 - 00:00) I think Tatsuko took that round, 10-9 on my score card.

(Rd 4 - 00:00) Even if he can take this final round, I can't see Katoh winning on the judges' scorecards. He needs a finish.

(Rd 4 - 00:00) His corner are trying to get him fired up, but Katoh just sits there staring at the floor.

He has decent striking, but his stand-up tends to be predictable, and lacks power. He had a recent run in GAMMA during which he struggled, and is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Truck Gleeson in his last fight. Nik Minear is a short but powerful fighter who goes after takedowns like a man possessed. He has the grappling skills to dominate from top control, but lacks any striking, or submission game to get finishes. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Sammy Newton vs. Andre Coton in the Second Round.

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Bud "The Rocket" Brockett (10-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #24, Favorite: -1190) vs. Jazz "The Lionheart" Snide (3-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #233, Underdog: +950)

 

Bud Brockett is one of the most successful collegiate wrestlers in recent memory, a relentless takedown machine who cuts nearly 20 pounds to fight at Lightweight and just bullies opponents with his size and intensity, he is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Glen Siemaszko in GAMMA. Jazz Snide is an up-and-coming kickboxing specialist, who is known more for his antics before and after fights than what he does during them. From his never-ending trash talk, to his "grave digger" celebrations, he does everything with swagger, and a sneer. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Yoshihide Hori vs. Tessai Satou in the Second Round.

 

 

 

MAIN CARD

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Duane "The Weather Man" Weatherly (18-10, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #88, Favorite: -160) vs. Folke Dalen (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #169, Underdog: +120)

 

Duane Weatherly is a veteran Canadian fighter, and former XCC Lightweight Champion. He is a good kick boxer who can cause a lot of problems on the feet, however his ground game has always been a big problem, and while it's improved over his career, he is still vulnerable to anyone with any degree of submission skill. He is coming off a Split Decision loss to Ross Smith that won Smith the XCC Lightweight Title. Folke Dalen is a Taekwondo fighter, a solid striker who can do damage with his hands or feet. He doesn't have much in the way of grappling or ground game, but is young enough to develope given time. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Frankie Geddon vs. Rogelio Quesada in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "The Sharpshooter" Georges Nouri (13-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #20, Favorite: -1200) vs. Raymond Austin (6-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #237, Underdog: +950)

 

Georges Nouri is a grappling master, renowned for his submission savvy. Superb on the ground both from on top and on his back, he is also an elite level fighter in the clinch. He has been a two time contender for the SIGMA Lightweight Title, but failed both times, and is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Lubos Plasil in SIGMA. Raymond Austin is a fairly underwhelming wrestler, who doesn't really have the tight grappling and explosive takedowns that would make people take notice, and the rest of his MMA game is non-existent. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Jimbo Jakes vs. Matt Horowitz in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Frankie "Arma" Geddon (8-1, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #41, Underdog: +400) vs. Rogelio Quesada (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #216, Favorite: -510)

 

Frankie Geddon is an exciting fighter to watch, he is a straight-ahead brawler, but one who attacks with such intensity and heart that fans can't help but get behind him. He was submitted in the first round by H.M. Menzel in his GAMMA debut. Rogelio Quesada is a submission artist, at his most dangerous when he has time to work on the ground. His weak striking game is a major handicap, albeit one he is slowly but surely working on. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Duane Weatherly vs. Folke Dalen in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "G-Force" Rodolphe Gygax (23-16, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #56, Underdog: +120) vs. Brock "The Spark Plug" Youdale (7-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #201, Favorite: -160)

 

Rodolphe Gygax is a deadly puncher, able to knock out just about anyone if he can connect properly. The rest of his game doesn't even come close to matching his striking however, and so most of his fights revolve around him head hunting while he tries to avoid takedowns. He is coming off a second round knock out victory over Eberhard Dahm in SIGMA. Brock Youdale is short, squat, and likened to a pit bull, doggedly determined to take opponents down, and once he has a leg or waist lock he is almost impossible to shake free. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Johan Kavli vs. Kenny Magilton in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Irving "Bang Bang" Braun (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #61, Favorite: -440) vs. Selton de Oliveira (18-10, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #196, Underdog: +350)

 

Irving Braun is a ground and pound specialist, who makes up in power what he lacks in height. His vicious strikes to a downed opponent will finish most fights, although his real problem is getting opponents down in the first place. He is coming off a 39 second TKO victory over Gerrard Kneeling in BCF. Selton de Oliveira is a kick boxer, who poses some threat with his powerful kicks, but is sorely lacking in anything approaching a ground game and so can be picked apart with ease by anyone who can get a takedown. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Keith Jolly vs. Morihiro Kiski in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "Sweet" Sammy Newton (7-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #93, Favorite: -290) vs. Andre Coton (5-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #164, Underdog: +230)

 

Sammy Newton is a young kick boxer, a great natural athlete with a solid striking game, he will however have to work on the other areas of his game if he is to achieve great success. He is coming off a first round submission loss to Darren Southall in XCC. Andre Coton is a kick boxer with some decent strikes with which to do damage, but is so one-dimensional it's hard to see him having any great impact in the sport. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Nicholas Bretton vs. Nik Minear in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Shusui Ikoma (3-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #116, Favorite: -330) vs. Robbie Lynn (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #141, Underdog: +260)

 

Shusui Ikoma comes from a very strong kick boxing background. He has blazingly quick hands, and dynamite head kicks that help him rack up spectacular knock out victories. Robbie Lynn is a young Canadian striker, who has trained in kickboxing since childhood. Known for his scorching head kicks, he is a fun fighter to watch, but probably has too many obvious holes in his skill set, like grappling and ground game, to ever be a true threat. The winner of this fight will face #13 Luke Hilton in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: "Thunder And Mud" Jimbo Jakes (6-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #109, Favorite: -280) vs. Matt "The Blitz" Horowitz (6-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #148, Underdog: +220)

 

Jimbo Jakes comes from a kick boxing background, and has won all six of his pro fights. He has a strong ability to finish opponents. Matt Horowitz is a former amateur boxer who has good hands but needs to dramatically improve his all-around game if he is to survive in MMA. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Georges Nouri vs. Raymond Austin in the Second Round.

 

 

 

PRELIMINARY CARD

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Gerrard Kneeling (6-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #71, Underdog: +220) vs. Timmy "Pedigree" Dukes (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #180, Favorite: -280)

 

Gerrard Kneeling is a young English striker, who is willing to stand and trade with anyone. His big weakness is that he is so limited, other than his strikes he has no real attacking weapons and his defensive skills are shoddy at best. He is coming off a 39 second TKO loss to Irving Braun in BCF. Timmy Dukes is an Australian kick boxer who has nice hands and wicked kicks, a combination that makes him hard to deal with on the feet. He is noted for his exceptional cardio, possessing the stamina of an endurance runner. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Patrik Pedersen vs. Sebastian Fernandez in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Glen "The Marine" Siemaszko (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #29, Favorite: -1200) vs. "Smilin'" Ignatius Hepfinger (9-10, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #228, Underdog: +950)

 

Glen Siemaszko is a tough Lightweight, a kick boxer with a dynamite right hand. A real life US Marine, Siemaszko is noted for the trademark army colors on his fight wear. He recently became XCC Lightweight champion, putting him on GAMMA's radar, but he was manhandled in a Unanimous Decision loss to Bud Brockett in his debut. Ignatius Hepfinger is a kickboxer, with decent strikes in his arsenal, but little else. His grappling and ground game are virtually non-existant, and he lacks any sort of KO power. He is coming off a Split Decision loss to Jeremy Sproule in BCF. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Bunrakuken Abe vs. Delma de Brito in the Second Round.

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Patrik "The Troll" Pedersen (8-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #52, Favorite: -710) vs. Sebastian "The Bruiser" Fernandez (8-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #205, Underdog: +560)

 

Patrik Pedersen is short and stocky, and one of the hardest hitting Lightweights in the world, a result of his muscular and compact physique. On top of his dangerous hands, has also allied his strength with powerful grappling, allowing him to bully opponents around, and making him tough to take down. He has won all 8 of his professional fighters, and is coming off a Unanimous Decision victory over Milenko Rudonja in SIGMA. Sebastian Fernandez is perhaps the most physically powerful Lightweight around, and uses his brute strength to try and crush opponents into defeat. A tough guy, his one weakness is when he is on his back. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Gerrard Kneeling vs. Timmy Dukes in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Johan Kavli (4-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #73, Favorite: -110) vs. "Straight Edge" Kenny Magilton (8-6, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #184, Underdog: +100)

 

Johan Kavli is a Greco-Roman wrestler, accomplished in the use of the clinch to control an opponent and set them up for punishing close range strikes. He also has a very underrated and dangerous submission game in his arsenal. He is coming off a first round submission victory over Khariton Litke in SIGMA. Kenny Magilton is a Jiu-Jitsu specialist and has some good submissions in his bag of tricks and is quite capable of slapping one on at a moments notice. He is not too shabby on his feet either due to his quick hands, and that versatility helps him to stay unpredictable. He is coming off a first round TKO loss to Floyd Haywood in XCC. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Rodolphe Gygax vs. Brock Youdale in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Hokusai Araki (3-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #120, Underdog: +680) vs. Grande Silveira (5-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #137, Favorite: -860)

 

Horkusai Araki is a fairly mediocre competitor, a Muay Thai fighter who loves to stand and strike. He is capable of holding his own in a stand-up battle, but horrible ground game and grappling are easily exploited. He is coming off a first round submission loss to Chan Kim Huat in KDM FC. Grande Silveira is another in a long line of dangerous Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors, and has the ability to force opponents to tap out. Like many of his peers though, his stand-up is nowhere near the level of his ground game. In his last fight he challenged Braco for the FLB Lightweight Title, losing a Unanimous Decision. The winner of this fight will face #9 Go Yamamoto in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Keith "Dodger" Jolly (6-3, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #68, Favorite: -500) vs. Morihiro Kiski (5-4, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #189, Underdog: +390)

 

Keith Jolly is a kick boxer, a decidedly average striker, his greatest advantage is actually his speed in the cage, as he is very hard to hit. This also helps hide is greatest weakness, which is that he is absolutely useless in close up grappling exchanges. Jolly has lost three straight fights, and is coming off a first round submission loss to Tim Oldacres in BCF. Morihiro Kiski is a kick boxer, a very one dimensional fighter in that he is only dangerous striking, and not even that dangerous at that. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Irving Braun vs. Selton de Oliveira in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Bunrakuken "Honest" Abe (12-6, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #100, Underdog: +200) vs. Delma de Brito (18-10, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #157, Favorite: -260)

 

Bunrakuken Abe is a fairly average kick boxer, whose career has been plagued by inconsistency, and poor conditioning that has limited his success. He is coming off a Unanimous Decision loss to Min-Soo Sik in KDM FC. Delmo de Brito is a veteran of almost 30 fights. A Muay Thai fighter he likes to stand and trade, or pull his opponent into a clinch to punish them, but his ground game is weak. He is coming off a third round submission loss to Chico Feijo in FLB. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Glen Siemaszko vs. Ignatius Hepfinger in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Adam "The Anarchist" McLeish (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #125, Underdog: +230) vs. Utamara Kawatake (1-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #132, Favorite: -300)

 

Adam McLeish is a young fighter who was a highly regarded wrestler in college, he hopes to use his high intensity grappling to become a big player in MMA. Utamara Kawatake is a student of Shaolin Kung Fu, and is great at using scything low kicks to cut opponents down to size. The winner of this fight will face #4 Atep of Indonesia in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Yoshihide Hori (5-2, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #105, Favorite: -150) vs. Tessai "The Punk" Satou (11-9, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #152, Underdog: +110)

 

Yoshihide Hori is a karate practitioner, who is at his most comfortable when the fight stays standing as he has fairly good punches and kicks at his disposal. Where things get ugly is when he is forced to grapple or fight on the ground, as he is horrid at both. He is coming off a first round TKO victory over Rayver Anzures in KDM FC. Tessai Satou is known for his pink mohawk, and is a former amateur wrestler. Although he is both strong and durable he is not particularly dangerous as he doesn't have the weapons to finish opponents. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Bud Brockett vs. Jazz Snide in the Second Round.

 

 

 

CTC Lightweight Championship Tournament First Round Bout: Seiho Nanami (7-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #45, Underdog: +320) vs. Norihide Kusonoki (2-0, 0-0 CTC, Tournament Seed: #212, Favorite: -410)

 

Seiho Nanami is a young Muay Thai fighter. A fearless competitor, he likes to stand up to his opponent and try to out-strike them with his multitude of hard punches and kicks. Norihide Kusonoki comes from a background in Judo, but has added some striking and gritty ground and pound to his existing skill set to create a style that's very hard to deal with. The winner of this fight will face the winner of Teeratep Nutnum vs. Tsunesaburo Oonishi in the Second Round.
