WFC2 delivered an all action night of fights from Grundy Park in
Cheshunt, Hertfordshire that exceeded everyone’s already high
Four new champions were crowned and the rest of the card delivered a
mixture of knockouts, submissions and hard fought three round battles.
Highlights of the undercard included a dominant performance from Tommy
“Twogunz” Maguire who took no time at all in pounding out Danny
Fletcher in just forty seconds and a textbook triangle choke from the
always dangerous Dino Gambatesa as he put David Haggstrom away in the
second round of their bout.
Knockout of the evening had to go to Team Hellboy prospect Jack
Hermansson as he wasted no time in dispatching Andor Filo with some
scintillating punches in just twenty eight seconds.
Robbie Olivier took home the featherweight title but he had to work
every second of the way as he came through a bloody battle with
grinder Antanas Jazbutis. The Tsunami veteran came through some tight
looking submissions and showed his trademark excellent wrestling to
tough his way to victory.
Underdog Robert Krecicki took home the light heavyweight gold with a
great performance against Toni Valtonen in which he used a relentless
game to shut down his opponent. Valtonen, much to his credit, never
stopped coming forward but his attacks were neutralised as Krecicki
held out and took home the belt.
Claudio Silva built on his grappling tournament victory at Submission
1000 last weekend by taking home the middleweight title when Matt Ewin
was forced to submit in the second round due to injury. Ewin suffered
an injured groin in a fight that saw him taken down but scramble
repeatedly from the bottom.
The bantamweight title bout was over in a heartbeat as former WEC
bantamweight champion Chase Beebe took care of ATT’s Ralph Acosta in
forty one seconds thanks to a vice like guillotine choke.
