In the midst of excellent fights and knockouts at the 4th edition of Future FC, the highlight was young middleweight Wellington Turman, 22, who simply dominated UFC veteran Márcio Lyoto in the main event fight, held last Friday in the Centro Universitário Ítalo Brasileiro, in São Paulo. The athlete of Gile Ribeiro began in advantage standing and defined in the ground, with an engaging movement and a rear naked choke unappealable in the first round.
The performance gave Wellington Turman a $ 500 fighter of the night bonus and a contract with the LFA. It was the 15th victory in 17 fights of Turman, which was selected to participate in the "Dana White's Contender Series Brazil" last year, but due to visa problems did not travel to fight, being replaced, coincidentally, by Márcio Lyoto.
Who also stamped the passport to represent Brazil in the LFA were veterans Toninho Fúria and Paulo Pizzo. In lightweights, Fúria, 30, and now 45 fights in the cartel, presented with the aggressiveness that is customary and, with a kick in the rib, knocked out Marcos Alemão. With a winning track record in Kickboxing, bantamweight Paulo Pizzo, 38, used the experience and power of his hands to knock out young prospect Caionan Blade. In addition to the LFA contract, Pizzo also pocketed $ 500 for the finish of the night award.
The fight of the night bonus went to Karol Rosa and Gisele Moreira. The fight was a rematch of a duel held in 2017 at the Aspera FC event. At that time, Gisele won by majority decision. This time the story was different. It was almost three rounds of war, but with Karol taking advantage and hurting the opponent. In the end, when it seemed that the fight would be decided by the judges, Karol increased the pressure of blows and forced the central referee to end the fight, missing a few seconds to the end of the third round. Both pocketed $ 500.
Lightweight Ednilson Cai-Cai and flyweight Bruno Korea also raised the audience. Cai-Cai, by the spectacular knockout applied to Marcos Forever, a standing knee; Korea, for almost cinematography performance against Leandro Foguinho. TUF Brasil veteran opened a range of weapon, including spinning and flying kicks, which just did not define the fight before the 15 minutes by the impressive resistance of Foguinho. In the end, victory of the TFT athlete by unanimous decision.
The brazilian rapper MC Guimê debuts at the corner, but sees defeat of friend
Flyweight Marciano Ferreira had rapper MC Guimê in his corner and even started very well the fight against Adriano Florêncio, who came to swing a few times in the first round, looking like the knockout would be a matter of time. However, on the second, Florêncio recovered and used Jiu-Jitsu to save himself. After taking Marciano to the ground, he took the back and set with a rear naked choke, to Guimê's disappointment.
