Less than a minute after the end of his first round against Brazilian André Ricardo Santos, Carl Amoso put his opponent on the ground and immediately stood on it. We suspected he would get the key to the heel and he did. A few seconds later, his opponent hit the ground and agreed to win. He became the first Hexagon MMA World Champion at under 77 kg.
It was even more complicated for Lucie Bertaud, who returned to the ring after a year of absence and a place in the final at The Koh-Lanta Show. The Frenchwoman was beaten by a TKO in the third round by Venezuelan Carla Benitez. Unfortunately, Bertaud took control of the fight before receiving a thrust in his face.
We also remember the victory of three Frenchmen this evening. In heavyweight, Damian Lusko Remy defeated Georgian Giorgi Khobegashvili by TKO in the first round. At under 70kg, William Gomis won the first-round submission to Togolese Baba Nadgombe. At under 84 kg, Grégory Babène also took the win by submitting in the first round against Ukrainian Bohdan Kotlovyanov.
Finally, the judges were unable to separate Leticia Plaut from Lithuanian Ernsta Krickit at the end of their three rounds.
