Weekend in Fights! September 15th Edition

This Weekend in Fights! (September 15th, 2012) featured King of the Cage in Oklahoma,  KSW 20 in Poland, BAMMA 10 in England, Aggression Fighting Championship 11 in Winnipeg, and Road FC in South Korea all on Saturday night.
King of the Cage: Surgical Strike took place at the Riverwind Casino in Norman, Oklahoma. A new champion was crowned when JC Cottrell and Roy Babcock squared off for the vacant King of the Cage Lightweight title. During the fourth round Cottrell snapped on a guillotine choke to submit Babcock and capture the championship. (Full King of The Cage: Surgical Strike event results below.)
KSW 20 took place at the Ergo Arena in  Gdansk, Poland, on Saturday. The promotion introduced their first ever PPV system featuring seven bouts. The event was headlined by former five-time “World’s Strongest Man” Mariusz Pudzianowski versus Christos Piliafas. Pudzianowski rushed Piliafas to the ground where he was forced to escape a guillotine attempt. Once out of the submission attempt, Pudzianowski pounded his way to victory with 72 remaining in the opening frame. KSW Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz successfully defened his championship over UFC veteran Houston Alexander with a 5 round war. Blachowicz almost ended the bout on two occasions with triangle choke attempts, but Alexander managed to hold on until end of the respective rounds. (Full KSW 20 event results below.)
BAMMA 10 took place at London’s Wembley Arena in London, England on Saturday with the bouts airing on AXS TV in the U.S. and Fight Network here in Canada. BAMMA Lightweight champion Rob Sinclair went the distance with UFC veteran Andre Winner in a very back-and-forth five round war, that saw Sinclair edge out Winner with a split decision retain his title. Former BAMMA British middleweight champion Jack Marshman failed to make weight therefore was unable to recapture the championship he was forced to vacate. However, Marshman made short work of the very tough  Andrew Punshon with a triangle choke half way through the first round. (Full BAMMA 10 event results.)
Aggression Fighting Championship 11 took place at the Winnipeg Convention Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Saturday night. Headlining the event was UFC veterans Joe Doerksen and  Kalib Starnes. The two Middleweights collided for a full three rounds with Doerksen walking away with the decision. Doerksen won both rounds one and two, yet was in a tough spot in the third as  Starnes connected with punching combinations that almost ended the bout. Starnes final efforts were all for nothing, as Doerksen was saved by the bell. (Full AFC 11 events results below.)
Road FC 9 “Beatdown” took place at the Chiak Indoor Gymnasium in Wonju, Gwandong, South Korea on Saturday night. The main event featured Melvin Manhoef picking up his firs win since 2009, with a split decision over Jae Young Kim. Japanese MMA superstar Ikuhisa Minowa picked up 38th career submission victory and third by kimura. Minowaman forced  Jin Soo Yuk to tapout with one second remaining in the round. Road FC also held the quarterfinals of their inaugural Lightweight Grand Prix. All four bouts saw a finish with three TKOs and one submission. Yui Chul Nam, Vuyisile Colossa, Yong Jae Lee, and Takasuke Kume all advanced into the semifinals. Yui Chul Nam defeated  Masahiro Toryu with punches. Vuyisile Colossa defeated Seok Mo Kim with Knees and punches. Of the three TKOs and all of the quarterfinal bouts Yong Jae Lee versus Won Gi Kim was the only bout to make it out of the first round as Lee picked up the victory with a body kick follwed by some punches. In the only submission on the grand prix Takasuke Kume submitted Chang Hyun Kim with a rear-naked choke. (Full Road FC 9 event results below.)
