Friday Babylon MMA 18: Revenge gala caused a lot of excitement! In the fight of the evening, Paweł Pawlak defeated Adrian Błeszyński to win the middleweight belt. The pride of the gala was also the performance of Łukasz Sudolski, who knocked out Mladen Kujundzic in 12 seconds.
Pawlak and Błeszyński faced the battle for the Babilon MMA organization’s middleweight belt in February. An incredibly thrilling five-round game ended in a draw, so the band remained vacant. Both players said they did not want to wait for the jury’s verdict this time and that they would try to determine the fate of the title in advance.
It didn’t work out, but the fans have nothing to regret! Both players provided a great spectacle that kept you in suspense until the last seconds. Ultimately, the belt went to Pawlak by an unequivocal decision of the judges.
Extremely spectacular was the last fight before the belt fight, which lasted only 12 seconds! That was exactly what Łukasz Sudolski needed to take out Mladen Kujundzic.
There were emotions in the other duels too. In the first fight of the main card, Oskar Szczepaniak – who made his professional debut in MMA – defeated Adam Rybczyński by the judges’ decision. The fight was interesting, but the next fight sparked even more emotions. Paweł Dziuba settled Maciej Smokowski in two minutes and 38 seconds and won by technical knockout.
Fight number three was also over before time. Adam Łaguna won by submitting to Kamil Mękal, performing an effective choke behind his back in the second round. Dawid Martynik used the same technique in the next fight, so Patryk Trytek had to tap in the second round.
The judges’ verdict turned out to be crucial again in the fifth clash, in which Paata Tsxapelia had to recognize Marcin Jabłoński as superior.
