Brandon Moreno vs. Kai Kara-France II Revisión

Published

on

UFC 277 fue una muestra orgullosa del talento latinoamericano de UFC, que culminó con la pelea: Brandon Moreno v Kai Kara-France II.

En el espectáculo estadio American Airlines Center en Dallas, Texas, Brandon, marcha al ritmo de su corrido, el “Corrido del Bebe Asesino”, donde adentro del octágono esperó Kai Kara-France de City Kickboxing. Con toda la anticipación del mundo, la audiencia estaba listos para ver al neozelandés y al mexicano crear una pelea al nivel legendario.

Primer Asalto

Con el nuevo campamento en Glory MMA y la ayuda del entrenador de boxeo Jorge Capetillo, Moreno y el equipo habían modificado su postura para responder a las patadas en las piernas con las que lo vimos sufrir en su última pelea de la trilogía con Deiveson. Moreno mostró una excelente visión y sincronización en esta ronda, dejando la pierna fuera del alcance del neozelandés.

Se produce un quiebre en la acción a traves de una patada en la entrepierna de Moreno, pero con todas las ganas de volver a meterse y presionar, Moreno solo tarda 38 segundos.

En este asalto los principales ataques que utilizó el mexicano fueron su jab, gancho izquierdo y su cross. Moreno da un paso lateral alrededor del octágono al ritmo de Kara France. Cuando Moreno ataca a Kara-France, el neozelandés no tiene otra opción que retroceder directamente a la jaula y salir en la dirección que Moreno quiere.

Moreno toma el derechazo limpio de Kara-France, lo que probablemente lo tiene aturdido pero lo suficientemente inteligente como para llegar a la jaula y luchar con Kara-France. Bien probado en su última pelea con Askar Askarov, Kai se pone de pie en el momento que se siente su oportunidad.

Segundo Asalto

La primera asalto nos mostró a Moreno preparado y pendiente contra las patadas a las piernas, pero Kara-France responde intentando más patadas a las piernas y logrando aterrizar con éxito a las piernas de Moreno.

Kai usó el jab de Moreno como una indicación para lanzar poderosas patadas y disuadir de plantar el pie adelantado. Kara-France lanza una patada alta contra el jab del mexicano, pero equivocado se encuentra empujado contra la jaula. Moreno no logra iniciar ningún ataque significativo, deja que Kara-France se eleve contra la jaula, lo golpea y regresa al centro de la jaula, preparando su próximo método de ataque.

Kara-France telegrafía con su mano derecha que Moreno se agacha y luego agarra las piernas de Kai y lo hace tropezar, lo que Kai inmediatamente rebota con el brazo extendido para agarrarse. Moreno ataca de nuevo, apuntando a la cabeza de Kai con una poderosa patada.

Moreno lanza una patada a la cabeza de Kara-France, a lo que el neozelandés responde con una patada a la pierna derecha del mexicano, derribándolo. Recuperando la compostura, Moreno vuelve a aparecer consciente de los golpes entrantes de Kara-France.

Los peleadores terminan el asalto intercambiando poderosas combinaciones.

Tercer Asalto

Kai intercepta otra patada de Moreno, haciéndolo tropezar directamente en la posición guardia cerrada. Moreno trabaja para posibles ataques de triángulo, palancas de brazo, y Kara-France prioriza los golpes en el suelo para abrir una gran herida en la cara de Moreno. Golpeando de pie, Kara-France está teniendo éxito sincronizando sus derechazo y patadas.

En respuesta al éxito de Kara-France, Moreno cambia la trayectoria principal de su patada de la cabeza al cuerpo. a lo largo del asalto . Moreno conecta una patada al cuerpo y se abalanzó sobre Kara-France mientras se cubría del dolor del golpe al cuerpo, lo que obligó a Herb Dean a terminar la pelea en el último minuto. Brandon Moreno se convierte en el nuevo Campeón Interino de Peso Mosca.

A pesar de la adrenalina del triunfo, Moreno de cara a su rival solo se centró en ser un ejemplo ejemplar para sus hijas en casa. Brandon Moreno le pregunta a Figueredo:

“Te perdono y te pido perdón si te dije algo que te lastimo. Si estas listo en diciembre, pelearemos.”

Con corazón y cinturón de oro, Moreno y Figueiredo se abrazan para confirmar la tetralogía

proyectada a finales de 2022 o principios de 2023

PFL Offers To Host Kayla Harrison vs Cris Cyborg

Published

on

After both women were featured on yesterday’s episode of the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Kayla Harrison and Cris Cyborg now have a serious offer on the table for their super fight. The founder and co-owner of the PFL Donn Davis tweeted saying that the PFL will host the fight and “handle all matters”. Offering up $1 million for each fighter’s purse and a $2 million winners bonus, the fight now has some serious money behind it.

Whilst on the MMA Hour, both women had something to say about the fight, Kayla Harrison actually called into the show when it was about to end to tell her side of the story. She said that the last she heard from the PFL was that Cyborg was a free agent and they had reached out. Harrison also said that she would be happy to negotiate on behalf of Cyborg to get her whatever she wants, whether the fight is winner takes all or not, whether Harrison has to go through a full USADA drug testing program etc. Her only request was that they allow elbows so she can “put one through her skull”.

Cyborg, on the other hand, said that if the PFL wants to make the fight happen, they should contact Scott Coker and Bellator to make the fight a co-promotion. Despite now being a free agent, Cyborg referred to the fact that she loves working with them and considers Coker to be family and would want them to be involved. Whilst co-promotion isn’t out of the question as it’s something Bellator have done before, it does make the deal more complicated.

Also on the MMA Hour, Cyborg announced that she will be making her professional debut in boxing on September 25th. She will face Simone Silva in Curitiba, Brazil and signed her contract live on air. Harrison’s next outing in the PFL comes in less than two weeks when she faces Martina Jindrová on the 20th August at PFL 9 in London as one half of the semi-finals.

Is this a super-fight you’d like to see made in the near future? Let us know your thoughts on the situation in the comments.

Arnett won the title from AlQaisi in an exciting and heated affair at ‘UAE Warriors 30’ this past July ending ‘The Royal Fighter’s’ triple championship reign. The bout was ended via doctor stoppage due to a cut sustained by AlQaisi in the second round. Emotions ran high and tempers flared in the aftermath, however officials quickly handled the situation and both fighters immediately agreed to a rematch.

If that wasn’t enough excitement, we will see the anticipated return of the Africa series as ‘UAE Warriors 32: Africa’ takes place the night prior on Friday, September 16.

History will be made as Kevin Oumar (8-3) and Emilio Quissua (3-0) compete become the first ever UAE Warriors Africa light heavyweight champion.

Hailing from Comoros, Oumar is based out of France where has become both a sanda and kickboxing champion. The 29-year-old is on a five-fight win-streak which includes an impressive submission win over the previously undefeated Mohamed Amine in his last fight in UAE Warriors this past March.

Oumar will once again need to be on top of his game as he faces Angola’s Emilio Quissua. A former kickboxer himself, Quissua trains out of the renowned Planet Eater gym in Germany and has won all three of his professional MMA bouts since making his debut just over a year ago.
