6/7/10 1:33:40PM
Paulo Filho picked up a win at heavyweight, Olympian Satoshi Ishii dominated an exhibition fight that initially resulted in a disqualification (but later was overturned to a no-contest), and Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett suffered a loss in recent MMA action. At this past Friday's Memorial Fight Qualifying event in his native Brazil, Filho dominated MMA newcomer Daniel Gabriel and won by 1st round tapout (strikes). Ishii went to a No Contest Myles Tynanes in an exhibition bout at this past Friday's X-1 "Nations Collide" event in Honolulu. Originally Ishii was DQ'd because he continued striking after the bell sounded to end the round, but X-1 promoters overturned the DQ because they determined the referee acted too slowly to stop the fight. Bennett, meanwhile, appeared at this past Friday's Action Fight League event in Hollywood, Fla., and took on Washington-based lightweight Sterling Ford. In the headliner of the "Rock-N-Rumble 3" show, Ford earned a unanimous-decision victory over the Floridian in a largely lackluster affair. The veteran of the Northwest fight circuit has now won three straight and five of his past six. This fight also likely cost Bennett a Strikeforce fight later this month. Although Strikeforce officials declined to comment on the reason, Bennett's removal from the card is believed to be result of his AFL booking.
