Heat Fighting Championship Quick Results:

Heat Fighting Championship Quick Results:
By Eduardo Alonso

      Yesterday Brazil saw the first ever edition of HEAT FC and experienced their taste of a truly international event, with plenty of action and a very interesting production. Some fights were remarkable with HardCore Gym fighter Forrest Griffin showing what he has in great fashion, defeating Ebenezer Braga in a exciting fight where both guys came to please the crowd. Braga even issued a challenge to Griffin before the final match of the evening inside the HEAT FC ring, with Forrest promptly accepting it. Needless to say the crowd went berzerk, as they did in the war that Carlos Barreto and Ben Rothwell fought. It lasted only one round but both fighters bralwed and showed amazing guts, with back and forth moments, with looks that either of them could win during several times during the bout! Rothwell was extemely tough and showed unbeliavable heart, until Barreto finally came back in the fight to win with a high kick KO, showing his newfound Muay Thai skills. Both guys deserved a lot of respect, as did Babalu who entertained the crowd a lot of times during the bout, facing a newcomer who showed why he was a BJJ purlpe belt in the past. Check out FCF’s page for more details on the inaugural HEAT soon!
