Xtreme Couture athletes had a tremendous weekend in competition. Gym members went 7-1 at Friday Night’s Tuff-N-Uff show at the Tropicana.
Kimo Yadao kicked off the night with a hard fought decision victory. Fellow Hawaiian Chance Torres followed his lead in the next match winning by Americana in the first round. Weston Dushen won via ground and pound in the second round of his fight. Jimmy Jones suffered the only loss of the night, losing to a D-I wrestler who racked up a number of takedowns. Jimmy didn’t suffer any damage on the ground, continually fought back to his feet and delivered several exciting kicks and combinations. But the numerous takedowns were enough to win the fight. Kui Gonsalves-Kanoho wasted no time in his fight scoring the Knockout of the Night in 7 seconds. Mark Phan scored a unanimous decision win and in the Main Event Brice Ritani-Coe KO’d his opponent in 20 seconds. For full results check out the Tuff-N-Uff website.
Saturday night was more of the same with the newest member of our team Goran Reljic scoring a second round TKO. He showed tremendous heart, battling back to beat Wilson Gouveia a highly regarded UFC veteran.
Later in the night Wanderlei Silva brought the capacity crowd at the MGM to its feet with a vintage performance against Keith Jardine. In classic axe murderer fashion he rocked his opponent then went in for the kill. It was a great night for Randy and Shawn Tompkins who coached both Goran and Wanderlei.
