Welcome to the most recent version of Missed Fists the place we shine a light-weight on fights from throughout the globe that will have been neglected in these hectic occasions the place it looks like there’s an MMA present each different day.
Summer season is winding down and I can’t consider a greater approach to kick off this week’s function than with a *ahem* refreshing take a look at the latest fight sports activities sensation that’s sweeping the nation!
(Massive thanks as at all times to @Barrelelapierna for his or her weekly lists of one of the best KOs and submissions, and to @Grabaka_Hitman for importing most of the clips you see right here. Give them a comply with and chip in on Patreon in the event you can.)
You already know, often when @Matysek88 graces us with the most recent footage from the opposite aspect of the world, it lands someplace between freakishly amusing and straight horrifying, however come on: “Punch Fall” simply seems to be tremendous enjoyable.
Everybody concerned is definitely having an excellent time, even with all of the face punching (mileage could range on that entrance). Positive, it’s only a extra brutal variation on the traditional joust that we’ve all tried our hand at in our youth at team-building retreats, county gala’s, and summer season camps, however the visible of the repurposed storage unit dangling over a lake is a strong one.
There are a whole lot of eventualities introduced in Missed Fists which have me going, “Oh, I by no means, ever need to do something like that ever.” However this I can get into. I might do that. I need to do that.
You possibly can — and may — watch the primary episode of Punch Fall totally free on YouTube:
Cleiton Silva vs. Leonardo Mafra
Lucas Martins vs. Henrique Marques
Edilceu Alves vs. Sean Santella
Cleiton Silva, we provide the deepest of cap ideas on your unwavering dedication to the spinning s***.
Look, I’m not fully certain what UFC vet Leonardo Mafra was doing right here, however he confirmed little concern for Silva making an attempt to spinning again fist him the primary time. And the second time. It wasn’t till the third time when it was manner too late that he realized the error of his methods.
Frankly, the referee didn’t appear too involved about it both as he denied Silva his walk-off alternative regardless that it was clear as day that Mafra had had sufficient. As a lot as we make enjoyable of Herb Dean, please keep in mind that there are guys like this on the market.
Within the Courageous CF 60 important occasion, Lucas Martins dared Henrique Marques to face within the pocket with him. Marques obliged and now Marques is not any extra.
(Fast tip: Decrease the quantity on these headphones earlier than enjoying this clip because the commentator goes from zero to 100 out of nowhere.)
Edilceu Alves additionally scored a notable win over longtime flyweight veteran Sean Santella and whereas he couldn’t get the end, he could have landed essentially the most daring and harmful strategy of the week as Santella tried to lure him into his guard.
Yeah, I’m actually undecided what Alves was doing there. Aside from successful, after all.
Courageous CF 60 is accessible to replay with a subscription to Brave CF TV.
Rauan Bekbolat vs. Ramzan Molochaev
This must be among the finest stoppages I’ve ever seen.
At first look, this seems to be like an absurdly early name. Referee Dauranbek Zhakaev steps in proper after Rauan Bekbolat lands a clear leaping knee to the abdomen, which might have probably despatched social media right into a rage if it occurred in a serious North American promotion. Nevertheless, there’s no grievance from Ramzan Molochaev and actually seconds later he collapsed to the mat and really required medical help to get again up. How did Zhakaev know that Molochaev was that badly damage? Does he have Romeo Must Die X-ray vision???
As much as that time, it was a aggressive struggle. Each fighters utilized physique work and Molochaev landed a few candy spin kicks to the midsection. Typically one good one is all it takes although, as Bekbolat confirmed.
Alash Pleasure 75 is accessible totally free replay on YouTube.
Lewis McGrillen vs. Martin Fouda
Lewis McGrillen’s (5-0) starched Martin Fouda (5-18) at VIDA final evening in his hometown of Wythenshawe in Manchester.

So this is the reason they train you to not go away your legs on the market.
That’s 21-year-old bantamweight prospect Lewis McGrillen clubbering Martin Fouda. McGrillen lands a straight shot with Fouda hopping on one leg and the result’s what you’d anticipate as Fouda goes parallel to the bottom earlier than slamming into it.
It’s price noting that a lot of Vida Preventing Championships 3, which came about in Manchester, England, was booked as a showcase for fighters like McGrillen. His opponent entered their bout with a 5-17-1 file. A number of of the shedding fighters have been making their professional debut and none of them have a successful file. One fighter, Jan Lysak, is now 0-22 in keeping with Sherdog.com!
Matt Hampton vs. Yannick Krahenbuhl
Right here’s Matt Hampton placing Yannick Krahenbuhl down with a one-shot bomb.
Hampton improved to 1-1 with the win, whereas Krahenbuhl will hopefully have short-term reminiscence with reference to his professional debut, which lasted lower than 40 seconds. Preventing is a tough enterprise.
And in case you missed it — and actually, I’m telling you it’s OK that you simply missed it — Blake Perry had his nose completely rearranged after eating a knee to the face. You possibly can take a look at the hyperlink for your self as a result of I’m not taking a look at that ever once more.
Ebeson Sevalho vs. Gabriel de Souza
How about one other extra blink-and-you-missed-it KO?
At Thunder Battle 37, Ebeson Sevalho wanted simply 18 seconds to catch Gabriel de Souza with a proper hand. The best way they have been each throwing, somebody’s card was going to get pulled, and on this present day it was de Souza’s.
Yet another from the ICYMI pile, be sure to take a look at Iago Torres’ hook kick KO from Motion Battle 21. Cleiton Silva didn’t get to stroll it off, however at the very least one Brazilian had the prospect to have a good time in model this week.
Now, get again to your summer season holidays everybody and don’t overlook to find time for all of your family and friends:
