Score Fighting Series 7 results: Mein quickly stops Petz, Ronson batters Healy
(mmajunkie.com)
Strikeforce took a gamble by loaning out Jordan Mein, one of its top welterweight prospects, for Friday's Score Fighting Series 7 headliner. Against UFC vet Forrest Petz, he faced a heavy-handed fighter with proven knockout power. Yet, quickly in the main-event fight, it looked like anything but a risky proposition. Mein made short work Petz and battered him with punches, elbows and knees from close quarters for a quick and efficient first-round TKO victory. The bout headlined SFS 7 and took place at Hamilton Place Theatre in Ontario, Canada. The main card aired live on AXS TV. Although Petz opened up early, Mein quickly pounced with countershots and put him on the defensive with accurate strikes. The stoppage, which primarily was the result of standing elbow strikes, came at the 1:29 mark of the opening round. "I had to respect his power ... but once I landed a few elbows, I felt good," said Mein, who isn't sure if he has an immediate future in the rumored-to-be-closing Strikeforce promotion. "I'm excited and happy." Mein (26-8) is now 8-1 over his past nine fights, and the lone defeat came via close split decision to Tyron Woodley. Petz (25-10), meanwhile, snaps a four-fight win streak.

Rickson Gracie's 'Mestre do Combate' event live stream
(static.vto.tv)
The promotion is the brainchild of the legendary Rickson Gracie, and features some unique rules. Today's event follows a "Rio vs. Sao Paulo" theme. Murilo Bustamante and Fernando Veras will coach teams, and five guys from each side will take each other on (not all at once, though that would be cool). There will also be three other bouts, the main event and two co-mains. Here's a look at the card: Vitor Miranda vs. Elton "Monstro" Rodrigues Peterson Maffort vs. Robert Peter Luciano "Izzy" Correa vs. Oseias Viana Samurais vs. Scorpions: Fernando Camoles vs. Kitner Moura Armando Sixel vs. Thiago Fernandes Gerson Conceicao vs. Alexandre "Sagat" Nunes Brandao Celso "Farpado" Baldow vs. Udi Lima Jefferson "Jeffinho" Nunes vs. Glauke Eugenio As stated above, the event will feature some unique rules. Fighters will weigh in the day of the fights, not the day before. There will be a 10-minute first round. And the most interesting difference is that if a fight is close to getting finished at the end of a round (someone is threatening with a submission, or has his opponent hurt with strikes), the round will continue until either a finish comes or the person gets out of danger. Big John McCarthy has been brought in by Rickson to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Shinya Aoki Wants to Avenge His Evolve MMA Team Mate By Fighting Kotetsu Boku for the ONE FC Lightweight Belt
(mmamania.com)
Longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Shinya Aoki reluctantly returned his DREAM lightweight belt recently as, with the Japanese promotion's future looking bleak, he had elected to sign an exclusive contract with the new force in Asian MMA, ONE FC. That means the Japanese submission wizard is without a title for the first time since 2008, when there was a brief gap between him giving up his Shooto welterweight belt and winning the DREAM lightweight strap. It leaves a space in the 29 year old's trophy cabinet which he is in a hurry to fill and he already has a replacement belt in his sights.
