Framgångar för norrmän i England

I helgen tävlade Jakob ’Striking Viking’ Løvstad i huvudmatchen på MMA-galan ”Rumble of the Bronx” i England. Jakob och två av hans elever gick var sin match och alla tre vann.

Speciellt nöjda var norrmännen med Henning Svendsen som tog sin match på mindre än ett dygns varsel och vann på KO efter 40 sekunder.

Jakobs motståndare hade 7-1-1 som record och sades vara Irlands bäste. Jakobs elever gjorde sina proffsdebuter. Tillsammans spenderade norrmännen mindre än tre minuter i ringen.

Matchreferat på engelska:

Rinat Kamalov (Russia) V Andy Bridges (N.I.)

In true Russian sporting tradition, Rinat came out to his national anthem, which was a stroke of entertainment genius. To start the fight, Andy flew across the cage and clinched with the Russian, who wasted no time in picking him up and slamming him down near the cage, landing in sidemount. Immediately Rinat worked to put his knee on Andy’s belly, but he was held up as Andy trapped his arm. For Rinat, two horrific knees to the body secured the release of his arm, but, to escape the position, Andy exploded back to his feet.

Sinking low to attempt a takedown, Andy left his neck vulnerable as was distraught to then be caught in a guillotine by his opponent. Rinat wins via submission to a guillotine.

Henning Svendsen (Norway) V Simon Boulter

From the start it was clear that Henning was looking to land a huge, fight-ending punch as he surged forward at Simon throwing absolute bombs. Simon did well to fend off the initial attack.

After again closing the distance, Henning briefly put Simon on the floor, but stood back to allow him to regain his feet. Once his opponent was standing Henning launched himself forward, disrupting the guard with a wide left hook to then land the perfect straight right hand.

Simon dropped and, worryingly, was out cold for a moment, only to make a full recovery. Henning wins by Knock Out

Jakob Sverre Lovstad (Norway) V Rod Moore (N.I.)

For the main event the 93Kg champion of Finn Fight was flown in to face Rod Moore from Northern Ireland’s Dog Pitt Team.

Rod started well with a right low kick, but a double leg takedown from Jakob put him flat on his back as the Norwegian moved to side mount. Rod did well to regain half-guard, but Jakob was unrelenting as he worked hard to improve position, until he took full mount. Once comfortable, Jakob sat up high to pound his Irish opponent.

He gave the crowd a glimpse of his Finn Fight Vale Tudo style by aggressively smashing in a right elbow to add to the stream of nasty punches that were taking their toll on Rod.

Before long, it was clear that Rod had suffered quite a nasty cut above his eyebrow. Unfortunately, after an inspection from the doctor, it was deemed that his injury was too severe to continue.

Jakob wins by doctor stoppage due to a cut.I helgen tävlade Jakob ‘Striking Viking’ Løvstad i huvudmatchen på MMA-galan ”Rumble of the Bronx” i England. Jakob och två av hans elever gick var sin match och alla tre vann.
