Storm Samurai Brings A Blend Of Fighting Sports To The Crowd In Curitiba

Storm Samurai Brings a Blend of Fighting Sports to the Crowd in Curitiba
By Eduardo Alonso

Famous for its Muay Thai action, Storm added a different aspect to their card for the first time in the show’s history, and the result was several hours of fighting in an attempt to please every sort of fan. The Muay Thai action, being the event’s trademark, saw a dominance of the Chute Boxe team in their hometown court as their athletes ended victorious in most matches. In the most aanticipated Muay Thai bout of the evening, several time Storm winner Fabio Tigrao, from Chute Boxe, defeated Emerson Nunes by decision in a match that saw Fabio getting the nod in the second round to take the win. In another important fight in the Thai Boxing card, MECA veteran Alex Gaze also won a fair judges’ decision over another MECA veteran in Paulo Bueno, in a bout where he even scored a knockdown in the first round. Both Jiu Jitsu matches were decided by points, with Cristiano Neguinho, from Gracie Barra in Curitiba defeating Paulinho, and Ocimar from Chute Boxe defeating Simpson. The most awaited moment of Storm Samurai was, however, the MMA matches with the debut of Chute Boxe fighters Marlon Matias and Mauricio "Veio", who made their names fighting Muay Thai bouts at past Storm editions. Marlon didn’t disapoint his fans as he showed good composure in his first MMA match, getting the better in the stand up and not taking much punishment on the ground, until he scored a knockout over Daniel Mexicano in the 3rd round. Mauricio "Veio" also did well as he dominated late replacement "B.A.", as he is called, controlling both the stand up and wrestling aspects, and getting a deserved judges’ decision. Word is that the show has some problems in its production and organization, but all in all the fights are now in the history books and some new talents are being developed. Here are the results:

MMA Matches:

  • Marlon Matias def. Daniel Mexicano by KO in R3
  • Micheal Costa def. Rodrigo Tadeu by triangle choke in R2

  • Jefferson def. Alexandre Marciano by KO in R1
  • Vinicius def. Lamar by KO in R2
