We can hit your ass, but we can not hit the ball

Yesterday, October 8th, was a big day for fans all around the world. Hay Sport presents you the review of this day.

Narek Avagyan (5-1) and Vartan Asatryan (11-5) defeated Russian Artem Ostrakov (3-3) and Finnish Mikael Silander (14-5), respectively, at the Fight Nights tournament in Moscow. Narek started the first round with a takedown. After a brutal ground-and-pound, Avagyan forced Artem to tap out with a heel hook. Asatryan had to face very serious opponent, a former ACB Bantamweight Conteder - Mikael Silander. However, Vartan showed great progress in his training, the Armenian fighter declassed Mikael in stand-up game, and then ended the match with a choke.

Our MMA fighters pleased our fans very much, but let's not skip ahead... Also in  Moscow, Aram Davtyan took part in "Fight For The Future". One of the most technical fighters of the the Armenian new wave Hayk "Kadzh" Shakhnazaryan (19-2) knocked out Xavier Clavero (19-2) in 8th round of the main event of the evening. There was also a co-main event of the evening, where an extremely skillful boxer from Armenia Vage Sarukhanyan (14-1) took part in. Vahe went through very close fight but notched a UD win over experienced Mexican Gamaliel Diaz (34-11).

Nuremberg (Germany) saw a quartet of young Armenian boxing prospects go 4 for 4.  The hard-hitting welterweight Rich Ayranci continues his perfect streak with a 3rd round KO.  Young super middleweight Marten Arsumanjan also scored a KO, and Sascha Arsumanjan, a light heavyweight, won via pts.  Both these fighters stand at 3-0.  In the main event, the very promising middleweight Wanik Awdijan improved to 17-1 with a points victory over a formidable opponent, the Hungarian Attila Koros.

American audiences are willing to pay for PPV and can't watch the live broadcast at inconvenient European time...that is why UFC held their next tournament in England on American time. At 6 a.m., Gegard Mousasi (40-6) usually is sleeping, but yesterday he knocked the legendary Vitor Belfort (25-13) out. I remember none of Belfort's opponents punishing him in a stand-up game like this. Gegard was in the best shape of his life and finally gagged the noobs who predicted his defeat. After the match, Gegard stated that his stand-up game is the best in the division and called out Chris Weidman, Luke Rockhold, and Anderson Silva. Thanks to Gegard, his victory made us forget the crushing home defeat of the Armenian team to Romania (0-5). Varuzhan Sukiasyan's wards looked truly helpless. There are no excuses. Mr. Hovakimyan will give you the details, I'll make a quick conclusion from yesterday: "We can hit your ass, but we can't hit the ball"
