#9 – Co Main event – Lightweight
Koji Ando vs Zorobabel Moreira
Rd 1. Nice and technical first out of both fighters. Zoro’s reach and kicks are a sight to behold, Ando lands some night lefts off combinations. Ando eats an knee for a throw and slam at the end of th round.
Ando comes out strong, catches a kick and trips Zoro down. Zoro scrambles up and Ando goes to town with strikes on the tiring tall man. Zoro’s kicks still come out strong, but Ando shrugs them off, keeps his combos coming. Ando still flat footed and looks for a KO punch, while Moreira keeps on utilizing his reach advantage by throwing jabs and leg kicks. Ando lands two straight left hands that tag the tiring Moreira relentlessly.
Ando is haunting Moreira with a huge amount of punches on the feet. Moreira’s backing up looking gassed. Ando keeps his offense tight against Moreira peppering the Brazilian with all kinds of punches from different angles. Moreira is really slowing down last minute of the fight. Ando caught Moreira with left straight and a deadly right upper cut that hurt the Evolve standout leading to a third round stoppage.

Ando says, “I want to challenge the champion, and when I leave the cage, I want the belt.”
#8 – Welterweight
Bakhtiyar Abbasov vs Luis Santos
The Brazilian came out very composed. He threw a nasty inside leg kick to Abbasov. The Azerbaijan fighter attempted a takedown but the scary Luis Santos stuffed with ease. Luis Santos introduced himself in an emphatic fashion as he made a quick work of Abbasov with a cracking knee to the rib.
I saw Luis Santos’ eyes before unleashing that knee and I swear I saw him see Abbasov’s ribs open and pierced that right knee of his to Abbasov’s rib. He is really focused and so relaxed. Such a veteran of the sport.

#7 – Welterweight
Tatsuya Mizuno vs Brayan Rafiq
Rafiq does a good job keeping the pressure against the cage, and Mizuno grabs the cage to stop a takedown. Mizuno defends a takedown with a nice kimura grip to takedown, twice ending up on the ground and capitalizing with top position, but not able to get the lock before Rafiq gets up.
Mizuno spends the round inside Rafiq’s guard with pressure and sporadic punching. Ref calls them to stand, and for the final stanza they trade knees, punches and elbows, with Rafiq getting a near knock down but doesn’t finish before the bell rings.
Mizuno’s the fresher fighter coming into the last and final round. Mizuno’s stalking Rafiq with knees and punches. Rafiq is obviously tired, dropping his hands down, inviting Mizuno to be more aggressive. Rafiq is fatigue but still throws heavy punches. End of the third round.

#6 – Welterweight
Dwayne Hinds vs Christophe Vandijck
A high energy, fast-paced start for Hinds and Vandjick. Hinds is throwing the heavier blows between the two, but it was Vandjick’s relentless Judo attacks made a huge difference for the first couple minutes of the bout. The Belgian scored a trip over Hinds, transitioned into full mount and started punishing Hinds with nasty ground and pound that made Hinds tap. Another first-round stoppage for tonight’s show!
