If you enjoy MMA grappling you're going to enjoy this one. Asen Yamamoto fought hard and gave Kron some trouble all around. He has a bright future ahead of him.
Entertaining fight, excellent grappling by Kron as always but I'm surprised he got reversed twice. Or maybe he just allowed it because he likes to fight from guard?
Yamamoto had good moments, you can tell he has strong hips and some good snap in his strikes but honestly, the worst he looked was when he was in Kron's guard. Every time Kron went high you could tell he was fishing for the triangle and Yamamoto kept sprawling his feet back, hips down, and stacking his weight on him...is there some sort of valid defense here that I'm unaware of? Because everything I've learned indicates that this is the last thing you do when someone goes high with his legs. Everytime I saw him do that I was like "yep, he's getting nailed as soon as Kron gets a leg over a shoulder".
Not that I think I'm qualified to tell Yamamoto how to fight I'm just genuinely perplexed at what he was trying to do there, maybe someone more knowledgable than I am can clue me in?
Gabi is well known in the bjj community. I saw her fight Kyra Gracie a few years back in the absolute match (no weight limits) and it was like a child fighting an adult.
Did you see the whole card? I had never heard of Gabi Garcia before. That's the biggest woman I've ever seen, I almost wanted to hide behind my chair.
And what did you think of the return of Comrade Fedor?
I finally watched this fight. Kron owned it. I have no idea how Asen escaped that arm bar. I watched it twice. I know the escapes he was using but Kron straight up had that thing locked on. Good on him for getting out of it... No such luck with that triangle. Keon was going for that triangle for a bit but Asen still didn't stop it.
As for Gabi, she's not even human. I'm not a body builder but I know plenty of guys who pump iron 5 or 6 days a week and do not have the muscles she has. There's something not right with her genes.
Gotta say, that guard pull into the arm bar, and the triangle set up was a thing of beauty.
I agree. I'm probably going to watch it a few more times to get the details out of it and drill both a few times.
Edit: it's funny but after watching them a few times and picking out the details, it's really all stuff that I've learned. He's just really good at it.
