Felipe Enomoto vs. Ole Laursen. All videos in this post props to IronForgesIron.com
It would be a real shame if you only remembered ONE FC 2 for the freak show that was Bob Sapp vs. Rolles Gracie. As is too often the case when events only get remembered for the freak show fight(s) that they hosted, the rest of the card had some legitimately entertaining fights. Four out of five of the main card’s bouts ended in submission, with Felipe Enomoto, Bae Young Kwon and Gustavo Falciroli all securing rear-naked chokes against their opponents. While Enomoto vs. Laursen may have been the most entertaining of the three, Bae Young Kwon’s victory came the earliest, securing the choke only fifty six seconds into the fight. Likewise, Gustavo Falciroli picked up a quick submission against Soo Chul Kim, who curiously enough seemed hesitant to stand up with the BJJ blackbelt.

When we last checked in on XFC, Jamie Varner wasted little time crushing local fighter “Ladies Love” Nate Jolly. This time around, at last night’s XFC 16, little had changed. Jamie Varner wasted little time crushing journeyman Drew Fickett, dropping him early and earning the stoppage only forty seconds into the fight. Time to bring in Fancy Pants.

While there were plenty of knockouts from XFC 16, Amaechi Oselukwue delivered the most impressive one. Unorthodox as it was, the straight right he landed after missing with a kick caught Gerardo Julio Gallegos completely by surprise, ending his night in one minute and twenty three seconds. Coincidentally, Nate Jolly was the referee for the fight.
