Liveblog: CFFC 8 Part 3
Amiri Shabazz of Shadowfist White Tiger and Leonardo da Costa of Team Renzo. Hmmm, let me see... a striker versus a jiu-jitsu guy... how will this one go? Yeah, it's takedown to guard pass to mount to back-mount to rear naked choke, and Shabazz taps at 3:49 of the first round. Kevin Horowitz of Team Mongrel and Ozzy Dugulubgov of Bull Shark are up, with Dugulubgov making his pro debut after a brief but impressive amateur career. Horowitz, on the other hand, is a very capable veteran, so this should be a good test. At first, Horowitz meets the Russian's raw aggression head on with wrestling and strikes. But in no time Dugulubgov is overwhelming him with fists that are too fast and moves that are too explosive. Horowitz can take punishment - no doubt about it. Unfortunately, the ref has seen enough when Dugulubgov drops Horowitz with a knee, and the bout is called at :43 of Round 2.
