It was a good night of fights in this humid vacaton paradise. Edson Diniz pulled off the most important victory of his career as this American Top Team fighter beat Tomomi Iwama, vet of ZST in Japan. Both fighters came in with one loss a piece in important shows, making this the most anticipated match of the night. Diniz both worked to improve position and fired off shots to the face of Iwama, earning him the Fighter Of The Night award for his efforts.

By contrast the main event of Pride vet Malenko vs. Aguilar from Mexico was one-sided, even with a delay to fix a broken ring rope not distracting the more experienced Malenko.

Justin Weiman’s injury was first thought to be a dislocated elbow but turned ot to be broken, however that incident exemplified the atmosphere of AFC wheb Weiman’s opponent’s cornerman Ricardo Liborio from American Top Team helped Weiman in the ring. Overall this night not only was packed with great fights but great sportsmanship and career advancements for most fighters.
