Welcome to the most recent version of Missed out on Hands where we radiate a light on battles from around the world that might have been forgotten in these busy times where it feels like there’s an MMA program every various other day.
There wasn’t a wealth of mixed martial arts activity this previous weekend break, which might come as an alleviation to some as we get ready for the UFC’s return this weekend break (Sean Strickland generally occasion once more, everyone!). Yet we’re not considering that as a poor point, due to the fact that it offers us the opportunity to concentrate extra very closely on a promo and also its competitors that have actually been quieting on the local scene for a long period of time.
(Large many thanks as constantly to @Barrelelapierna for their regular checklists of the very best KOs and also entries, and also to @Grabaka_Hitman for submitting a number of the clips you see right here. Provide an adhere to and also contribute on Patreon if you can.)
Gerald Meuse vs. Joshua Beauparlant
Amanda Ferreira vs. Lindsey Kelley
Peter Barrett vs. Kris Berberich
Deon Perry vs. Kyle Michel
Aaron Hughes vs. Matt Denning
Cage Titans takes spotlight today after holding a ludicrously enjoyable occasion this previous weekend break in Plymouth, Mass. You can capture a complete replay of the program with a membership to Spectation Sports, however the Boston-based promo did an impressive work of submitting highlights and also making certain that they spread out everywhere on social networks.
Most importantly, we need to offer a significant shout-out to Gerald Meuse for establishing bench high for 2023 Walkout of the Year.
An armed forces male, Meuse included his fellow professionals in his walkout and also assembled a quick, however unbelievably enjoyable dancing regular collection to the song of The Tip Siblings timeless I’m So Fired Up. Everybody understands I’m a fool for an excellent dancing (Israel Adesanya at UFC 243 permanently), so Meuse’s shenanigans right here are significantly valued.
The action he strikes right out of eviction, the small hold-up prior to his initial dancing companion participates, the twirl, the finger weapons, the track selection. Excellence.
Oh, and also he additionally won by means of tornado, which is type of cool.
I don’t understand exactly how significant Meuse has to do with seeking his mixed martial arts fantasizes as he has actually contended periodically considering that his amateur launching in 2012 and also is currently 2-0 as a professional with his initial win occurring in 2018, however this evening was one to keep in mind for him despite what the future holds.
It’s fantastic that every little thing went flawlessly for Meuse also, due to the fact that or else there’s no other way he might have outweighed amateur Amanda Ferreira clubbing Lindsey Kelley with a rotating backfist.
Ferreira landed that so tidy you need to question if she might have strolled it off. Had she added those added design factors, this would certainly have been a lock to make the list for the 2023 Fistys.
Allow’s reevaluate at that a person.
In the co-main occasion of the night, current UFC competitor and also previous Cage Titans standout Peter Barrett advised every person that you can constantly go house once more as he required much less than 90 secs to complete Kris Berberich with a breaking body kick.
Hefty focus on “breaking.” Your body ain’t gonna be right after consuming among those.
Barrett didn’t have much good luck in the UFC, going 0-2 inside the octagon, however it’s nice to see him solve back on the saddle also if it’s against substantially weak competitors. This was his 3rd straight win considering that going down a split choice in his Cage Titans return back in July 2021.
Simply beginning his mixed martial arts trip, light-weight Deon Perry made his amateur launching and also most likely felt it pass quickly as he sent Kyle Michel with a rear-naked choke in simply 30 secs.
And also, certainly, we would certainly be falling short in our tasks at Missed out on Hands if we didn’t consist of Aaron Hughes’ first-round guillotine entry win and also succeeding post-fight speech that had to do with as poetic as it obtains.
We’re still 4 months far from Mom’s Day, however shout-outs to all the mothers around!
Cristina Crist vs. Brownish-yellow Terrell
We like a competitor doing what they can to advertise themselves, so look into Cristina Crist’s emphasize reel of her gain Brownish-yellow Terrell at Top Battling 25, which includes a great head kick knockdown and also later on a rear-naked choke in the 2nd round.
Based out of Arkansas, Top Battling is a reasonably young promo that held its initial occasion in 2019. If you intend to see future occasions and also capture up on their previous programs, you can enroll in a membership right here.
Felipe Bunes vs. Yuma Horiuchi
Marcus McGhee vs. Luciano Ramos
At LFA 149 in Chandler, Ariz., last Friday, a brand-new flyweight champ was crowned. In simply his 3rd LFA look, Felipe Bunes broke Yuma Horiuchi with a left hand and also abounded for the coating to catch an uninhabited belt.
Bunes has a moderate 13-6 document, however take an eye his return to and also you’ll see an individual that has actually done the reverse of document extra padding, taking on some outright awesomes consisting of Jussier Formiga in his initial LFA battle. Heading right into this title chance, Bunes’ previous 7 challengers had a mixed document of 88-26-1. At 33, the Brazilian schedules for a call-up to a larger promo.
In the co-main occasion, Marcus McGhee scored his initial LFA triumph with a second-round punch-out of Luciano Ramos.
Simply a systematic finishing series there. McGhee teed Ramos up, chose his areas, and also collapsed him.
Don’t neglect to look into LFA 150 tonight at 9 p.m. ET on UFC Battle Pass.
As we frequently state around these components, till following week, maintain rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ rollin’.
