Vengeance At The Vanderbilt 9



VENGEANCE AT THE VANDERBILT 9
Held August 5th


It was a night of action on Long Island, NY this past Saturday as Louis Neglia and Ray Longo held the 9th Vengeance at the Vanderbilt. Kickboxing, Thai boxing and Freestyle Grappling were showcased with many exciting matches.

Lane Vs. Nieves
The fight of the night was Frank Nieves vs. Tim Lane in a non-stop action bout of kickboxing. Both fighters hit the canvas throughout the bout. Nieves was able to score a decision over Lane who looked to gas in the later rounds due to trying to score an early KO victory. Lane, who 2 weeks before the bout suffered a deep gash over his eye in training, was looking for an early KO before his eye would open up and the bout would come to a halt.

Panza and Baroni
The most talked about match of the night between Scott McTigue [Renzo Gracie] and Phil Baroni [Panza] in and Freestyle match up, never happened due to McTigue suffering from a skin condition. McTigue was replaced by John Hayes who gamely took the bout against Baroni, a college wrestling star and undefeated boxer and kickboxer with a mean streak to match. Baroni easily took out Hayes in 35 seconds with strikes as the referee halted the bout. Baroni, never short on words, declared he will enter into the world of NHB and is looking for a match up with Renzo Gracie standout, Matt Serra.

Shooto Pictures


Hello,

We have added 40 pictures from Shooto show held on August 4th. I think Susumu sent me some new concept photos like closing up the fighters. They are all redish so he might used a different type films from usual ones.

There will be Pride and Shooto show on the same August 27th. I am curious which show Susumu is covering. I myself am going to Pride. My house sits between Tokyo Dome and Seibu Dome. It takes 30 minutes to go to Seibu by train.

And I should mention that an official Shooto book called Rumina 100% in which Susumu was involved very much has published here. I am going to introduce some photos from the book soon. You can buy it directly from Susumu as usual.

HOOKnSHOOT Triumph

HOOKnSHOOT "Triumph"
August 19, 2000 – Memorial Coliseum – Evansville, Indiana

Those within driving distance from Evansville may want to make the trip to HnS this month.
With an 8-man ADCC qualifier in the 66-76KG division, an unbelievable show is on tap along with some added suprizes!

Although nothing is "set in stone", HOOKnSHOOT has some serious names being tossed around the ADCC qualifier. With over 20 applicants, the choices being made are VERY difficult but the following names are being considered as POSSIBLE competitors in the field of eight:

  • DAN GILBERT. Runner-up to Dave Menne last year in the trials, only MMA loss to Frank Trigg after an illegal blow. Recently victorious in Shooto.
  • PAUL RODRIGUEZ. Currently ranked #1 in HnS. Recently fought in Shooto.
  • MATT SERRA. Renzo Gracie’s top student and master grappler.
  • DENNIS HALLMAN. AMC Pankration standout. Competed in ADCC 2000.

These four alone are just the first four applicants so you can only imagine what is to follow.

Eight exciting bouts, along with two exhibition matches and a superfight that should excite makes for another potential, landmark show for HOOKnSHOOT who recently celebrated their 5th anniversary.

Among those scheduled to fight: Adrian Serrano vs. Joe Merit (IFC Champ), Phil Johns defends his title against Chris Gochis, Scott Henze, Kelly Williams vs. BIG Johnathan Ivey, Lane Andrews, Floriday standout Scott Bills and many others!

A new HnS Absolute Fighting Champion will be crowned as Aaron Riley and Steve Berger finally get their shot at the gold!

Riley, recently capturing his fifth championship in Harlingen, TX, brings his 75% knockout ratio to the ring in his first shot at the NHB title.

Berger, recently victorious in a 4-man tournament and a win at SFC this past weekend, is considered by many as a true champion and has NEVER been KO’d or tapped in MMA.


STEVE BERGER

ST. LOUIS, MO

IRONHEART CROWN CHAMP
VAGHI INVITATIONAL CHAMP

AARON RILEY

Berger has gone the distance with Jeremy Horn and beaten Extreme Challenge champion Shonie Carter and is always unpredictable.

Match the two up and you might just have….the perfect fight.
