Yesterday in Paramaribo, Suriname, the Dutch promotion SLAMM!! held an event featuring an 8-man, one night tournament that included some of the top young, upcoming fighters in the sport. Also featured on the card was rising heavyweight star, Ismael Londt. Many Dutch fighters are originally from or their backgrounds are from Suriname and SLAMM!! has held events their before. As per usual, Team SLAMM!! fighters were featured heavily on the event, with Ajay Balgobind, Anthony Kane and Ismael Londt among others.

The quarter finals of the tournament kicked off with four fights at -70kg, and all went to decision.

Miles Simson vs. Ajay Balgobind

Ajay Balgobind won by decision.

Antoine Mandela vs. Alessandro Campagna

Alessandro Campagna won by decision.

Xavier Benedito vs. Miloud el Geubli

Miloud el Geubli won by decision.

Anthony Kane vs. Cedric Bacuna

Anthony Kane won by decision.

With four men advancing after the quarter finals, it set up the semi finals with Ajay Balgobind vs. Alessandro Campagna and Miloud el Geubli vs. Anthony Kane. Once again, both fights went to decision.

Ajay Balgobind vs. Alessandro Campagna

Alessandro Campagna won by decision.

Anthony Kane vs. Miloud el Geubli

Miloud el Geubli won by decision.

This set up Alessandro Campagna vs. Miloud el Geubli in the finals. This was the only fight to not go to decision in the tournament.

Alessandro Campagna vs. Miloud el Geubli

Alessandro Campagna won by TKO in Round 1 and wins the tournament. Campagna, with this tournament win has shown himself to be an up and coming fighter to keep an eye on. Campagna raised some eyebrows in October of last year when he knocked Houcine Bennoui out in the first round.

Also on the card, Ismael Londt took on fellow Dutch fighter Raemon Welboeren. In an unusual scenario for Londt, he didn't walk away with a knock out win but still managed to get a decision. Londt has been on a tear this year, holding wins over Tomas Hron, Sebastien Ciobanu and Mladen Brestovac. I think it might be time for Londt to take a step up into big time competition soon. Another Dutch heavyweight, Jairzinho Rozenstruik also walked away with a win, this one by TKO over Jahya "Godzilla" Gulay.

The event was supposed to be stream on SLAMM!!'s website, but never did. We don't know what happened, but we expect videos to be up on FightStarTV in the near future.
