SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix: Riesta Results

superkombatworldgrandprixresita

SUPERKOMBAT’s first World Grand Prix event of the calendar year went down over the weekend at Mihail Sadovenu St., Resita, Romania, and for the first time since its inception, the promotion introduced Mixed Martial Arts contests as part of its ten-bout line-up.

Poland’s Dawid Kasperski, who was a newcomer under the SUPERKOMBAT banner, was the biggest winner of the night as he bagged the promotion’s Light Heavyweight tournament crown. In the semis, he scored a victory over Ciprian Schiopu via Unanimous Decision, before scoring ‘Fight of the Night’ honors in the finals opposite Suriname’s Errol Koning in an incisive Split Decision triumph.

The main event, meanwhile, saw an astounding outcome between Heavyweights Raul Catinas and Brice Guidon. After being counted out for a fourth time during the fight, the latter, a protege of the legendary Jerome Le Banner, was a victim of a fight ending, vicious left hook in the second round.

In the co-main event, famed brawler Catalin Morosanu scooped a Unanimous Decision win over Egypt’s Mohamed Karim.
