Carvalho Crushes Pineda
Antonio Carvalho (pictured) looked much more relaxed on his feet tonight and it paid off big with a beautiful “KO of the Night” candidate over Daniel Pineda. Pineda was in trouble early after eating a head kick but managed to hold on until a nasty right hand sent him awkwardly to the canvas. Carvalho quickly pounced before referee Mario Yamasaki stepped in and called the fight.
Kuivanen Edges Clarke
The fight resembled a grappling match for most of the fight. While Mitch Clarke had his moments in the fight, he appeared to tire after a winning the first round. Anton Kuivanen looked lost on the ground to start the fight but the Finnish fighter took advantage of a tiring opponent and did enough to impress the judges to secure the victory.
