Guram Kutateladze (Sweden) vs. Joachim Tollefsen (Norway)
Both fighters look cautious early. Akira is in the corner of Guram, and switches between English and Swedish… but no avantage as Joachim knows both. Guram lands a big right headkcik, and pounds on the downed Joachim. The Frontline fighter battles and is now looking for a triangle or armbar. Guram rushes in on top, and now is reversed. An armbar from the Sweden based fighter, but now both standing. Joachim has the reach here, but Guram looking for the left high-kick… but Joachim with one of his own… we got a fight!
Good left jab from Jaochim, and Guram looking to counter with a big right hand. Guram kicks low, now high. First round over, and it was a good one! The advantage in that round may be the big kick at the beginning of the round.
Another counter right for Guram that is waiting to punch over the left hand jab. Guram has power in his kicks as the snap on the legs of the Norwegian. Another good low kick, but Joachim is the one moving forward here and seems to be controlling where the fight takes place. Good right hand from Guram, and he seems relaxed…. Guram lands a big right hand and rocks Tollefsen. The Frontline fighter dives for a take-down, and flops to his back. There is blood now, but looks like it may be Guram’s that is on top. Joachim kicks him off, and stands to the feet. Both fighters look tired. Good body kick from Joachim. Guram worried about his nose. Good right hand and follow-up from the Georgia fighter.
Good low kick from Guram again, but Joachim seems to be one combination away from turning this fight around. The fighters are showing their kicking range, going low and high. Guram almost lands an axe kick. Guram lands a BIG left hand, and Joachim goes down. Looking to finish, but Joachim fights back. This fight was a few punches from being over, but the heart of Tollefsen is coming through. The Redline fighter continues with top position, and lands punches as time is running out.
