Alex Pereira vs. Donegi Abena

AL: Yes, folks, that is Alex Pereira, a.k.a. The Adesanya Slayer.

JM:Lucas Bourdon.

That being said, I can confidently say that Alex Pereira is the greatest combat athlete in the world and everyone from Izzy to Jon Jones should be shaking in their boots.

AL: Facts.

JM: That goes for Stipe too. Everyone is officially on notice.

Mario Aguilar vs. Tim Eschtruth

AL: Imagine being Tim Eschtruth here.

Then this happens:

JM:

AL: Getting sentimental in your old age.

Both Glory 68 and World Xtreme Cagefighting 82 are available for replay on UFC Fight Pass.

Roman Ogulchanskiy vs. Joao Paulo Rodrigues

:

He did not take time off.

JM: In the words of the poet warrior Tupac Shakur, “I gotta get paid. Well hey, that’s the way it is.”

AL:

JM:

*Adopts Crocodile Dundee voice* now THAT is a wheel kick. Well done nameless fighter. We salute you.

AL: We make it a point here at Missed Fists to always name the fighters involved in these clips, but for the life of me I could not identify the participants in this Muay Thai championship bout from Gorilla Fighting Championship 17; on the other hand, there was no way we could leave this out.

You can watch the full event for yourself on YouTube, the fight in question begins around the 5:11:00 mark. If anyone has any info, help!

Johnny Iwasaki vs. Paulo Bananada

AL: And now, a fighter getting krunk between rounds:

JM: Paulo Bananada instantly just became the most relatable fighter in the world.

AL:

JM:

Thales Leites
Paula Cristina vs. Ana Costa
Wallace Lopes vs. Gabriel Taborda
Rangel de Sa vs. Paulo Henrique

AL:

I know some people might find these exhibitions corny, but I am admittedly a sucker for them.

JM:

AL: Also, this one reply is too good:

Now, back to our usual cold-hearted programming. Take it away, Paula Cristina, Wallace Lopes, and Rangel de Sa!

JM:

Well damn. Shooto just attacking from all angles this week.

AL:

Dony Matos vs. Federico Betancourt

I said watch the counter-right!

JM: Quick, someone call the police. Fake Dominick Cruz just got assaulted.

AL:

JM:

AL:

Tom Aspinall vs. Mickael Ben Hamouda

JM: You know who we can get excited about though? Tom Aspinall.

From Cage Warriors 107 (available on UFC Fight Pass):

AL: Just 26, Aspinall made the most of a main event opportunity, starching Mickael Ben Hamouda in under a minute. Get hyped!

Kota Matsui vs. Takuya Saito
Issei Tamura vs. Katsushi Sugiyama

JM: In a just world, Takuya Saito would have been declared the winner here in this Pancrase 308 (also available on UFC Fight Pass) matchup with Kota Matsui.

AL: Agreed. The scorecards were read in favor of Matsui, but Saito landed this:

JM:

Michel Pereira will be our champion and will remain undefeated for two decades before being inducted into the JMFC Hall of Fame as our inaugural member.

AL:

Tamura never really got to show what he could do in the , getting matched up with Raphael Assuncao and T.J. Dillashaw in his second and third appearances for the promotion. Here he is six years later just DETONATING this fool:

JM: Long live Kid Yamamoto.
