Cage Conflict held their thirteenth event last night. With a main event featuring Avi Jack and Aurelijus Kerpe, Cage Conflict also saw The Fight Lounge’s very own Nathan Court in action. Here are the results.
Aurelijus Kerpe v Avi Jack
Kerpe comes out extremely aggressive throwing big heavy punches, one of which connects with Jack who takes it very well. Jack shoots in against the cage and takes Kerpe down only for Kerpe to stand straight back up. More extremely strong aggressive striking from Kerpe, after which Jack takes Kerpe down and gets side control, moves into knee on belly mount but Jack goes into Kerpes guard. Jack pulls back and Kerpe up kicks narrowly missing Jacks face, Jack uses this movement to take Kerpes back which is overturned. Jack sits on Kerpe then uses a massive hammer fist to soften Kerpe up. Jack moves into an armbar and submits Kerpe at 4.44 of the first round.
Throughout the fight Jack showed extremely good control and composure where I feel others may have buckled under the heavy strikes of Kerpe – a very well deserved win.
Jack wins 4.44 of round 1 via armbar
Danny Welsh v Mark Ryder
Ryder immediately works for a takedown and secures a double leg but goes into Welsh’s guard. Both seem very controlled and patient looking for openings and opportunities. Ryder transitions beautifully into half guard, mount, and eventually to Welsh’s back. Ryder starts to work for the rear naked choke but is shaken off to the side by Welsh; Ryder continues to work for the rear naked choke but is again thwarted by Welsh. As Welsh shakes Ryder off again, Ryder attempts a triangle and transitions beautifully into an armbar for the win at 3.59 of the first round.
Ryder’s transitions looked superb as usual and he looks to be in a very strong position to take his career further.
Ryder wins 3.59 of round 1 via armbar
Sean Williams v Nathan Court
Both men look extremely composed from the start of this fight. Williams lands an excellent side kick that knocks Court back and proceeds to throw punches and kicks that look very comfortable and controlled. Williams looks for a take down and secures it only to be turned by Court who proceeds to stand up and step back gesturing – it’s clear where Court wants this fight. As Williams attempts a takedown again he leaves his neck open to a guillotine which Court secures sat against the fence and gets the win at 1.34.
Court looked very composed during the fight and dictated where it took place, Williams fought a very good fight only to be let down by a slight error – both men have a bright future.
Court wins 1.34 of round 1 via guillotine
Mark Aldridge v Andy Green
An extremely aggressive start from both men with punches and kicks being traded. Aldridge gets Green against the cage and does a big judo throw to get him to the mat. Aldridge transitions to an arm bar attempt which Green uses his power to get out of then follows Aldridge to the mat. After attempts at positioning Green transitions into a knee bar on Aldridge to which he taps at 1.11 making Green the winner.
I think we saw another Andy Green tonight – he showed composure, focus, strength, but most of all he used his mental awareness and skill to get him the win.
Green wins 1.11 of round 1 via knee bar
