Krzystof Jokto to beat Tamden McCrory – win
Jokto got us off to a winning start with a stunning over-hand crushing KO. He moved to 18-1 and is one to watch for future bets.
Misha Cirkunov vs Ion Cutelaba – win
15 seconds into this fight it looked highly likely someone was getting knocked out. Two absolute killers slinging leather. It was actually a submission win in the third round that got it done for Cirkunov.
Jason Saggo vs Leandro Silva – win
Saggo edged out the split decision win in this entertaining close fight to bring home the first bet. Good work fella.
Valerie Letourneau vs Joanne Calderwood – lose
The second bet fell at the first hurdle, with Jo Calderwood putting Letourneau away in the 3rd round. With money in the bank from the first bet, I’m not too disappointed though. I like winning money, but I’m really pleased for Jo Jo.
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs Thibault Gouti – win
It took till the 3rd round, but Aubin-Mercier got the submission win.
Steve Bosse vs Sean O’Connell – lose
These two put on quite a war for us. O’Connell almost stopped Bosse in the 1st round, but it went the full distance and the judges had to make a tough decision. It went Bosse’s way, there was nothing in it really.
Donald Cerrone vs Patrick Cote – win
Cowboy looks excellent at welterweight. Cote is tough, but Cerrone was just a step ahead in all areas. Class performance from Cerrone.
Rory MacDonald vs Steven Thompson – lose
Not what you’d call a thriller of a main event. MacDonald never really managed to get into boxing range and Thompson was happy to stay at long range, landing more shots, particularly his kicking.

Krzystof Jokto to beat Tamden McCrory
So 5/8 for me, but a profit for the night and significantly, I’m finally over the 1000% ROI mark for 2016 betting. Plenty of study to do for International Fight Week and three events in three days.
