South Plainfield Middle School in New Jersey played host to the Bayside Academy of Martial Art’s Fight Night 16 last night. A healthy crowd came out to watch 16 mixed match-ups of either shootfighting, grappling, or MMA-style bouts. Even with last-minute fighter cancellations (some by no-show), promoter Dan Miragliotta was still able to put on a solid show. Here are the results:

Ready To Get Back To The Top!
By Eduardo Alonso
It’s been several months since Jose Pele Landi set foot in an NHB ring to fight at a pro event. Since his controversial loss against Takada dojo’s own Daijiro Matsui at Pride 14, Pele has been struggling to find an opponent and waiting patiently to fight again. Now the moment has come, and the Chute Boxe veteran is looking to take this opportunity against former UFC champion Carlos Newton and bring his career where he feels it should be, back to the top! FCF had the pleasure to hear from Pele about his next fight, his pupil Murilo Ninja, and his plans for the future.
FCF: You have been away from the ring for a long time. Are you anxious to get in there and fight again?
FCF: It’s very hard for a fighter of your caliber to stay focused on training without fighting for so long. How has your training been during all this time without competing?
FCF: Can we expect you to be very well prepared for this fight?
FCF: DSE finally announced your fight against Carlos Newton at the upcoming Pride event. Newton is a very experienced fighter, a former UFC champion. What do you think of him as a fighter?
FCF: What do you expect from this fight against Newton? How do you see the fight ending?
FCF: Newton is a very good grappler, and he always look for submissions. Your ground game has also improved a lot over the years, but your Muay Thai is your strongest point. Do you think this fight will go to the ground, or do you expect it to turn into a standup battle?
FCF: After you fight Newton, is there anyone that you would like to face in Pride?
FCF: Your pupil, Murilo Ninja, has been making a name for himself. How do you analyze Ninja’s performance so far in Pride?
FCF: Recently you gave Ninja his black belt. What did that mean to you?
FCF: What can we expect from your future?
FCF: Do you have any message for your future opponents?
FCF: Good luck in your fight against Newton.

This fight has a lot of background to it and it all started when Jake Shields flicked the middle finger to Chris Brennan after Shields won a decision over Brennan’s student Tracey Hess. Shortly after that incident in UFC 35, Shields’ temmate Gil Castillo beats Chris Brennan by Decision. There is a lot of BAD BLOOD between both camps and I assure you that there will be fire in the ring when the bell rings. Shields and Williams have been making waves in California’s top events like King of the Cage, Gladiators Challenge and the IFC.
