On Saturday May 26th we have an exciting night of fights at Schooner's. Sydney fights will be putting on an event featuring 2 title fights.
Main Event is between Jazz Clementine v Daichi Kishimoto. Clementine(6-1) is your current champion at 145. Clementine is a striker with an excellent sprawl. He has 5 of his 6 wins by KO. His only loss to date has come by way of submission. Kishimoto(7-1) will be the guy he has his first title defense against. Kishimoto has a little bit of striking ability, pretty decent wrestling, and sports a bjj black belt. Which he puts on display. 6 of his 7 wins have come by submission.
Prediction: Kishimoto by submission.
The Co-Main Event is between Mike Johnson v Gideon Navarro. Johnson(5-0) will be defending his belt for the 3rd time at 170. He is a well rounded fighter who will be looking for the victory in anyway he can find it. Navarro(6-1) will be getting his first title shot. He is also a well rounded fighter but as you can see by his record all 6 wins have come by KO that he has a preference to standing and banging.
Prediction: Navarro KO
Third fight on the Main Card is between Luca Cruciani v Iso Paa. Cruciani(3-1) is a muay thai fighter who's wins and loss all have come by way of KO. Paa(3-1) is also a muay thai fighter with an amateur boxing record. Both fighters would rather go out on their shields on the feet than to ever fight on the ground. So for you KT fans out there that claim to be mma fans but think the ground game is boring. This fight, this fight is for you.
Prediction: Paa KO
The fourth fight on the Main Card is between Ingo Butzhammer v Sagat Shanti. Butzhammer(4-0 MMA, 0-1 KT) is unbeaten in MMA. Since hitting the weight room he has been putting people away winning his last 2 fight by TKO. Shanti(9-3) is a standup fighter who tends to shed blood. 2 of his 3 losses have come by stoppage from cuts. All 9 wins have come by KO.
Prediction: Butzhammer KO
The fight that will be kicking off the main card is Zedidiah Goldberg v Jon Silva. Goldberg(3-0) is a muay thai fighter in the 185 pound division winning them all by KO. Silva(4-3) is a ground fighter. While his striking is limited his chin has been tested and has never been KO'd.
Prediction: Silva submission
