Giorgio Petrosyan Masterfully Outclasses Artur Kyshenko

The first Fight Code event of the year just ended, and Giorgio Petrosyan beat Artur Kyshenko by unanimous decision.

They met in the main event of the event, Petrosyan being the number one fighter in all of kickboxing and Kyshenko a top five fighter in the 70kg division. Many thought this might be Giorgio's toughest test yet, as Kyshenko is a huge fighter for the 70kg weight class, often taking fights far above the weight limit. Kyshenko has been top 5 for some time now. He was one of the few top fighters that Giorgio had never faced.

Petrosyan simply outclassed Kyshenko, putting on a masterful performance. It was vintage Giorgio Petrosyan, living up to his moniker of "The Doctor." Giorgio's counter punches threw Kyshenko off for the whole fight, leaving the Ukrainian fighter based out of Mike's Gym clearly rattled at points. Even when the fight turned into clinch grappling, Giorgio still got the better of Kyshenko, who was much bigger and stronger and can bully opponents.

Easily the best part of Giorgio's performance was his movement. He had Kyshenko looking clueless at times, taking angles, moving in and out. Giorgio would out-manuevre Kyshenko to such a great extent a few times that he basically had Artur's back. He would move in, throw the straight left and move right back out before Kyshenko could even get a punch off, missing by miles at times.

I've seen a lot of people say that they're "not impressed" by Giorgio's performance or thought he "didn't look good." I think that's crazy. Giorgio Petrosyan just completely shut down a top 5 fighter in the world and made him look lost for a large portion of the fight. It was truly a masterful display of technical skills to completely stifle Artur Kyshenko.

La Nuit Des Titans: Pinca vs. Aikpracha Live Results

La Nuit Des Titans is happening in Tours, France today and we've got live results for you. 

Originally scheduled was Buakaw vs. Fabio Pinca but with the recent situation of Buakaw, current Lumpinee Stadium welterweight champion Aikpracha Meenayothin stepped in and presents an even tougher challenge for Fabio Pinca, one of the top non Thai nak muays. Also on the card is Buakaw's former (at least for the time being) stablemate, Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk who takes on French up and comer Ayoub El Khaidar. Last but not least, a four man tournament at 72.5kg featuring Fabio Pinca teammate Mickael Piscitello, Fares Bechar, Bird Kham and Super X.

If you want to watch live, you can order the online PPV from live.muaythaitv.com. Prices and how to watch are listed, with the price being $12.90 USD. It's already started but the main, professional fights haven't yet so be quick to join us watching.

Semi-Final #1: Mickael Piscitello def. Bird Kham by unanimous decision.

Good fight, although it was pretty dirty and had a lot of bad refereeing. Bird Kham had two points deducted during the fight, one for low blows which I don't think should've been taken away and one for a soccer kick while Piscitello was grounded. Piscitello dropped Bird Kham in the second round with an uppercut.

Semi-Final #2: Super X def. Fares Bechar by unanimous decision.

Super X started out dominating, then Bechar came back and turned it into a firefight. Bechar was dropped hard by a straight left as the firefight ensued in the first round. The second round was closer and Bechar was able to land some clean, hard punches when he pushed the fight but he didn't push it enough. Super X controlled the third to take a clear decision.

60kg: Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk def. Ayoub El Khaidar by decision.

Very good, close fight. It could've gone either way. El Khaidar is a fighter to look for in the future, he's young and he just did better against Pajonsuk than Karim Bennoui did. Surprised Pajonsuk got the decision in El Khaidar's home.

Final: Super X def. Mickael Piscitello by KO in Round 1.

Started competitive but Super X caught Piscitello with a short, inside punch then followed up with a few elbows and a knee to the body that had Piscitello out.

-68kg: Aikpracha Meenayothin def. Fabio Pinca by decision.

Good fight, Aikpracha was in control for all of it. Pinca landed some clean punches that didn't have much effect. Aikpracha landed more and was a lot more effective. Too bad they had to wear elbow pads.
