Eight days after he fought in Rumble on the Rock, Ray "Bradda" Cooper and company put on their version of the Toughman. It is basically a kickboxing Toughman, which allows one take down per round to give it a little twist and mix it up a little. This is a great event for fighters who want to break into the MMA scene, but want to get their feet wet first. The takedown are worth more than striking, so it starts out with a disadvantage to the striker in order to encourage grapplers to enter and test their stand up skills. This event brings out a lot backyard fighters who want to test their skills. A couple of the fighters were under 150lbs even though the weight limit was 200lbs. I enjoy this event just as much as MMA events because the action is intense and the fighters are fearless. Due to the amateur nature of the event, the first round of fights are action-packed, but the fights slow down as the tournament continues. Either way, there is always a ton of leather that is thrown around in each and every event. Doug Amaral, the 201 & over champion, had a bye the first round, but his crisp and accurate punches helped get him by the largest competitor in the finals, 414-pounder, Peter Sefo. Ben Terukina showed a calm demeanor, power punches and good cardio to make his way to the finals, while Ivan Avilla showed great take downs and decent punching skills to work his way through the tournament to meet Terukina in the finals. In the end, it was Terukina’s take down defense, coupled with his quick and accurate hands that made him the 200lbs & under Champion.
