Here we go! Right low kick from Zidar that brings him down and some nice elbow follow-up from the Allstars Training Center fighter. Good combination and spinning punch from Ivan.
Lucas is relaxed and takes the punishment well. But Zidar with some nice angles on his kicks and punches. Left hook, right kick. Left hook, right kick the combination of choice till Tenorio has enough and gets a take-down, and as the bell rings gets a rear-naked choke… but no time.
Good right hand from Lucas as Ivan now begins to pressure, and lands some real crisp body shots. The two are letting them go in a nice matchup. A take-down from the Brazilian, but Ivan stays calm and eventually escapes, then unleashes his favorite combination again and again. Ivan gets on top, and now in full guard, but does not want to be there and the fight goes back to the feet. Good knee and kick as the bell ends.
Ivan has a bit more energy and still pressing the action. Both fighters looking for an opening. Zidar finds it with body punches. Lucas tries to butt scoop his way to a grappling session, but won’t happen here. Ivan does get on top after Lucas misses some spinning stuff, and avoids a knee bar. A good flurry from the Allstars fighter to wrap this one up.
Result : Zidar wins by unanimous decision.

Anton closes the distance and ties up with two minutes left.
Turkalj has Vujic on the ropes as the round comes to an end and is stumbling backwards against the cage, but Filip is complaining about something. The mouthpiece is out, and the referee stops the action to put it in.
Big right hand and then a low kick fro Anton that looks good here on the tiring fighter. A big punch and Filip is down… Anton pounces for more punches and it is all over.

Ole relaxed early, and defends a takedown attempt from Berg. The two are against the cage and Berg in on a body lock, then take-down. Ole gets full guard, and the powerful Andreas lifts him to his feet… and eventually back down. Magnor taking some punches, but nearly locks up an armbar, but defended. Berg with some aggressive ground and pound, and Ole looks for a leg as he scrambles from his back. A big right hand sends a thud through the arena. More ground and pound, and this could be over!
Now, Magnor holds on as Berg uses his energy till the bell. On to round 2.
A quick take-down from Berg that remains on top. More ground and pound from Berg that is using his wrestling to keep the Norwegian down. Magnor gets a single leg, and “Bane” defends with a front headlock then spins around to take back.

Hamza Bougamza (1-0) V Darius Buda (2-0) – Co-Main Event
Hamza might have had the longest walk-in in Nordic history with his crew and rappers having a little party on the runway to the cage.
Hamza circling and sizing up Buda. A left kick low from Hamza has some snap on it, and he lands another knee on Darius that tries to put pressure on the Swedish standup specialist. Hands are low for the Allstars Training Center fighter.
Buda ties up Hamza and tries to lock on a guillotine and lands a nice knee. Hamza avoids the follow-up take-down and back to the feet. Bougamza lands some nice front kicks. Oh, what a good style matchup. Hamza will have to battle in this one as he balances his aggressive attack with opening to get taken down.
Buda is pressing the action and loading up on a overhand right hand. With each low kick, Hamza is open for the take-down. But, it looks like Buda has enough trying to defend. The tide is turning. OH, Wow! The tide turns again! A right hand from Buda lays out Hamza, but he is fighting back. On his back he defends but a few more punches from Darius and it is over by TKO. A stunned crowd and a disappointed Hamza on the mat, knowing it is over.
Result : Buda wins by TKO
