Crane, Sanchez Triumphant in Front of Home Crowd
King Of The Cage
Held May 15, 2004
At Sky City Casino – Albuquerque, NM

Alberto Crane made his triumphant return in KOTC after a punishing first round against MASH’s John Mahlow. Crane is the former KOTC Lightweight champion who relinquished the belt last year while Mahlow fought in the following Lightweight fight to determine a new champion. In the first round Mahlow was punishing Crane with standup and denying repeated takedowns while Crane showed a patient strategy of wearing down his opponent. In the second the altitude and Mahlow’s admitted uneven conditioning took it’s toll on the Michigan fighter as Crane came back strong to win with an unorthodox rear choke from a crucifix position.

Also on the card Diego Sanchez officially became the next in line for a shot at the Welterweight belt by defeating Ray Elbe. First the current champion John Alessio of Bad Intentions takes on Jorge Santiago of American Top Team in June so Diego will have to wait until probably September. In the meantime look for Diego to fight in the postponed H.E.A.T. show in Brazil. In this fight Diego wasted little time getting Elbe down and finishing with strikes to the face until Elbe tapped.

Jungle Fight 2 Quick Results:
Wiuff, Barreto, Werdum and Assuerio prevail in a night of action-packed fights
By Eduardo Alonso

Jungle Fight 2 is now history and it was most certainly a very entertaining show. With a few surprises like Jiu-Jitsu stylist Fabricio Werdum scoring a knockout win over seasoned Muay Thai fighter Ebenezer Braga, in what got even Werdum himself surprised, and Assuerio Silva making Brazilian Top Team fighter Fabiano Scherner tap out due to a tight guillotine choke. Assuerio’s win wasn’t a surprise, however the way he won certainly wasn’t expected by many. It also had some tough costumer of the MMA game coming back in great style, like Carlos Barreto completely dominating UFC veteran Bobby Hoffman, and giving hopes of a possible rematch against Travis Wiuff after the American showed once again he is improved for real and deserves a shot at the bigger shows as soon as possible, as Travis once again used his brain and his power to mix strategy with aggressiveness forcing the referee to stop the fight with Montenegro already ready to go to dreamland!

Punishment in Paradise: "Warriors"

Punishment in Paradise’s third event was another marathon of fights for Hawaii fight fans. Kickboxing matches made up the lion’s share of the 17, yes you read right, 17 scheduled matches. Kickboxing is making a huge resurgence in Hawaii and the level that the fighters are on is amazing when just two years ago there were no kickboxing events to compete. PIP featured fighters as small as 50lbs up to fighters just over 200lbs. The match ups for most of the event, with the exception of the exhibitions, were even as seen by the number of fights that went to the judges’ cards. Normally the fights that go the distance end up being boring, but the kickboxing action was kept fast paced and the three minutes rounds in the MMA bouts allowed the fighters to maintain their intensity for the whole fight. It was difficult to pick out highlights because every fight could have been a highlight. A few of them were the wars between Gerald Alevalo-Chad and Dominator Lopes-Brandon Absher. The crowd almost got into it when the strong teams of Team Big Dogs and Bulls Pen got so involved in the Toni Rodrigues-Ryan Lee fight that they were out of their seats, but the heat of the moment settled down. The main event pitted one of Hawaii’s best kickboxers in Tommy Pestana against one of Hawaii’s best kickboxers in MMA in Deshaun Johnson. Johnson looked sharp in the first round getting off punches first and slipping a lot of Pestana’s punches. He slowed a bit in the second with Pestana making some adjustments and becoming more effective. The third round saw Pestana finish strong and Johnson slow to almost a stop while counter punching. This earned Pestana the unanimous decision.
