X1 #47 Fight Results

In a valiant attempt to up the standards of MMA in Hawaii, X1 MMA #47 did not disappoint.

HONOLULU, HAWAII- Blaisdell Arena June 24, 2017
by Bryanna “Pink Ranger” Fissori

A full card of entertaining matches kept the Blaisdell audience engaged as well as nation and international fans watching on the live feed. This early summer show is the prelude for what’s to come for the next show on August 12th when matches won and lost on the June card serve as catalysts for bouts to come, titles to be won and fights years in the making finally coming to fruition.

Results: 

Main Event

Lolohea Mahe defeated Raymond Lopez via Unanimous Decision

Pro Mma SHW 3X5 Minute Rounds

When big boys fight, there is always a good chance that whoever has the best cardio will literally be the last man standing. Round one was a lot of wall work with positions switching on the cage and not allowing space for either to throw the dangerous heavy punches expected of the big boys. Moving someone else’s mass around the cage is exhausting at any weight class, and both fighters were showing signs of fatigue by the end of round one.

The second round was very similar to the first, with both fighters jockeying for cage position.

Round three was the make-or-break and Mahe made it happen late in the round securing the takedown against the cage and landing significant punches from the half guard just in time to steal the win.

 

Co Main Event

Tony Lopez defeated Tipo Lafaele via Unanimous Decision 

Pro Mma SHW 3X5 Minute Rounds

Lopez started the bout kicking but a slip early on put him his back and the ground and pound from Lafale nearly ended t the fight in the first minute. Lopez was able to grab the heel of Lafaele setting up for a kneebar. Though unsuccessful, it bought him the time to recover. The striking pace stayed surprisingly high for heavyweights with Lafaele landing and Lopez taking the storm. The tides changes toward the middle of the round with Lopez landing several hard blows that seems to slow Lafaele, who was then backed to the cage and met with knees and elbows that took them to the bell at the end of round one.

To start round two, Lopez came out kicking again and landed to the head of Lafaele, causing a little more blood to grace the mat, though Lafaele remained composed. Lopez was able to score the takedown half way through the round and maintain back control landing significant strikes. Once he was able to get both hooks in and flatten out Lafaele it looked like the show could be over. Lafalele recovered to his side but was quickly mounted and Lopez set up for the arm triangle. Lafalele defended and was saved by the bell.

Constant pressure from Lopez gave little room for error as Lafaele was backed to the cage for another barrage of knees. Lopez was able to pull off another takedown and maintain top control with smooth transitions and ground and pound, easily winning the third round and the unanimous decision.

Tony Lopez defeated Tipo Lafaele via Unanimous Decision

Isaac Hopps defeated Daniel Friend via Unanimous Decision 

Pro Mma 145lbs 3X5 Minute Rounds

Landing the takedown early in round one, Friend worked hard strikes to the body as Hopps worked to control Friends’s posture from the closed guard. Hopps used the wall to get up, opening up a large cur over the outer eyebrow of Friend I the struggle. The technical stand up trade from these two harnessed the agility of lighter fighters backed with power that seemed much heavier than their weight class.

Hooks, hooks and more hooks. These two both wanted to play in the pocket. Friend kept Hopps hanging out on the ouside of the cage, which worked wonders for the takedown setup. Hopps didn’t stay down long, though on his way up Friend landed a notable knee to the face. The second round ended with Friend in the guard of Hopps, maintaining position until the bell.

Hopps started utilizing longer punches in the third, which seemed to be finding their mark and Friend worked to acclimate to the new range. Hopps seemed to be making a conscious effort to keep his back off the cage, but still found himself caught there about half way into the round and stuck on his back for the remainder of the bout, where he landed punches from the closed guard and won the unanimous decision, which was seemingly controversial in the eyes of many fans. This would be a great rematch for X1 to host.

Isaac Hopps defeated Daniel Friend via Unanimous Decision

Kaeo Meyers defeated Paul Lopes via 1st Round KO 

Pro Mma 155lbs 3X5 Minute Rounds

I’m going to be honest, even though this fight was short (approximately 25 seconds), I missed most of it because I was wiping the blood off of my laptop and arms.

Kaeo Meyers defeated Paul Lopes via 1st Round KO

Justus Faaiu defeated Paul Norman via Unanimous Decision 

Pro Mma 205lbs 3X5 Minute Rounds

Norman came in looking for the takedown and was able to make it happen within the first minute of action. Transitioning into a modified backmount Norman was riding high forcing the armbar attempt as the only option he slide off the front. Though the attempt unsuccessful, Norman maintained pressure in the ensuing scramble. The remainder of the round was spent with Norman throwing punches from backmount with Faaiu defending the occasional rear naked choke threat.

Might as well stick with what works. Norman came out in the second round with the same original game plan, taking the fight to the ground. Faaiu managed to transition into Norman’s guard for a brief time before Norman stood up with the immediate intention of getting it back down. Countered with a sprawl from Faaiu, Faui was able to unleash significant ground and pound toward the end of the round, which was likely enough to make it  1 and 1 on the score cards going into the 3rd.

Having gotten a taste of dominant position, Faaui came out looking for blood in the last round. Norman held full guard while Faaui landed sttrkes to the body. After passing the guard, Faaui threw some significant elbows from side control, mounted and tried to seal the deal. Norman was obviously losing steam and struggling to defend and advance, but with less than a minute to go, Norman mustered enough in the gas tank or the sweep and a short ground and pound barrage of his own. It was not enough to take the round and Faaiu went home with the unanimous decision victory.

X-1 World Events 47
June 24,2017
Blaisdell Arena 

X-1 World Events looks to start the summer off right by bringing the heat back to the Blaisdell Arena on June 24th with a stacked card of local talent.

Expect the whole Oahu south shore to shake with the super heavy weight showcase of big boys in the main and co-main event match ups. Both hailing from the islands, Lolohea Mahe (8-4-0) will take on Raymond Lopez (3-1-0) for the main event, preceded by local boy Tipo Lafaele taking on Rudy Schaffroth of Oregon. Both fighters are undefeated as pros. The promotion promises to secure the cage doors tight for this one as Schaffroth’s last fight earlier this year ended in a no-contest when he threw his opponent through a door that malfunctioned. No one wants to end up with one of these huge beasts in their lap.

Filling out the rest of the main card, in the 145 pound weight class Isaac Hopps (2-3-0) is coming off a win in the X-1 cage and looks to continue the momentum against Daniel Friend (1-2-0). Both look to get their records back on track at an even 50 percent, and with a lot at stake and some proving to do, this match up could make for a real barn-burner.

Kaeo Myers (0-0-0) will make his pro debut against Paul Lopes (0-3-0), with their combined pro/am records looking very similar and making this a match that has some serious potential.

At 205 pounds, with a short amateur career Justus Faaiu (0-0-0) will make his pro debut against Paul Norman (1-4-0) who has been an active competitor since 2009. Though experience can be a key factor, so can the vitality of a newer fighter.

The undercard is comprised of some great amateur matchups including several title contentions between competitors who are experienced and skilled enough to have earned the belt shot and right to perform on one of the biggest stages Hawaii has to offer.

With X-1’s strong history of giving a platform to rising championship talent like UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and many others, the stacked card for X-1 Events #47 is a great opportunity to watch Hawaii’s up an comers as they climb the ranks.
