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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
