Thomas Ruderman victorious on Style Wars – Burwood

On the weekend Thomas Ruderman took on Anthony Brancatisano under full MMA rules on Brad Reids Style Wars promotion. As the name suggests the show included a number of different “styles” from pure grappling and boxing to full muay thai and MMA. The show itself ran smoothly and professionally, a job well done to Brad Reid – we look forward to fighting on more of your promotions.

The fight itself had a few little nice exchanges standing up. Thomas was able to secure a number of takedowns and take advantage of the top position using some nice punches and elbows. The second round saw Tom unleash with some heavy handed strikes and secure the top position once again unloading some more. As soon as Tom saw the opportunity to end the fight with a head arm triangle, he did so, and managed to submit his opponent in round 2. A good hard fight from Anthony who was a tough opponent and a great sportsman. A job well done to both gentleman.

Want to say a huge thanks to the 50 strong army who came down to support Tom, you are a peoples champion! Tom has been training extremely hard for this fight. He managed to spend more time in the gym than in his own home. It has been a few hard gruelling weeks of training, but it has all paid off. Happy Bday Tom.


K010 Numurkah Results

Up first we had Benson take on Kim Thompson. Nice display of takedowns and some heavy kicks landed on Bens behalf. He got caught early in his opponents guillotine attempt, but was able to remain calm and collected to defend it. Benson dominated the ground game and was able to secure the win.

Nhanny had a tough fight on his hands, taking on Mat Reids boy Cam Pegg from Sor Nak Soo under Muay Thai rules. From the word go Nhanny bombed his opponent with some heavy punches, never taking a backward step he kept coming forward. Nhanny wore some knees from clinch but still fought on aggressively. Unfortunately Nhanny lost on a split judges decision.

Lastly came Andrew Pato (the quiet achiever of the gym). A nice single leg take down from the beginning to set up his barrage of heavy handed body shots. Pato remained clam throughout the entire fight and managed to secure the win. Its good to see some of our up and comers having a crack at MMA and Muay Thai. Thanks to all who came up to support the lads in there fights. Its great to see so much team support. Job well done to all who competed this weekend and I look forward to seeing you back in the ring.


Brute Force 12 Results

Bam fought on friday night and lost on a judges decision. He landed some nice solid punches from range and unleashed a devastating barrage of heavy ground and pound, even landed some double handed hammer fists (hence his nickname BAM BAM).
Having the height advantage it was obvious that Leigh didn’t want to stand and trade with Leigh, and took him down. Bam spent a good part of the match. fighting off his back, neutralizing any ground and pound from his opponent, and trying to secure a submission. In the last round Bams back got taken and Leigh attempted a rear naked, but was unsuccessful. Leigh was a tough opponent and put up a great fight. All in all it was a great show, and good to see so many people to cheer on Bam and Team Nemesis.

Brayden Summers remains undefeated after his international debut on Martial Combat 8 SINGAPORE. He defeated Bian Xiao Long from Chinas top Sanda team in round 2 via standing guillotine. He fought a tough opponent who refused to be taken down. Most of the fight stayed in the standing clinch with Brayden landing some solid knees to the body and to the head. In round 2 he managed to secure a standing guillotine to win the fight.

The Martial Combat promotion has been one of the most professionally run events I have ever had the pleasure of attending. Everything ran to precision and the quality of the show was outstanding. The show itself is broadcast all over the ESPN channels around Asia. The quality of the fights were great and I look forward to the next one in October.
