Our first win for the night was done by Iyvin, winning with an outstanding rear naked chock in the first 20sec of the first round.

Secondly Mark did and great fight winning his fight with autonomous decision and hance the majority of the pionts were awarded to him.

Last but not least Aleandro gave an excellent performance against his opponent however his fight was stopped during the last seconds of the second round by the referee. Aleandro was still strong and performing perfectly when the referee desided to stop the match.
