Warrior's Way 1 - Results
F1 - 68kg
Joel Octigan (Hammer's) vs Eddie Baldacchino (Ult Hoppers)
Joel dominated this fight throughout, winning in the 3R from punches, after an 8 count which Eddie never really recovered from. I think Joel won it with 6 seconds to spare? I reckon we'll be seeing a lot more of Joel, after seeing him at JWP seminars and interclubs, its good to finally see him in front of a big crowd on a big show.
F2 - 63kg
Eric Misckle (Young Bulls) vs Karl Paredes (Sor.Jaiphet)
Having seen Eric fight a few times recently I knew this would be an entertaining fight, but I wasn't sure if the big head kick that he had attempted a few times would get through as devastating as it did. I was relieved when Karl got up but it always worries me when a fighter goes down like that.
F3 - 68kg
Chris Young (Colonel's) vs Ben Herezo (Cobram)
This fight was a bit of a war, with some really big shots being thrown. Both guys seemed to take turns to dominate the fight, with the fight going the distance and the resulting split points decision to Chris showing the complexity of the scoring.
F4 - 63kg
David Bachsinar (Hammer's) vs Tony Olin (Sor.Jaiphet)
This entertaining fight had all the elements of a great fight, big lead-up, emotional exchanges, some crisp techniques, decisive takedowns and a lot of heart. David looked good from the start, living up to the hype, winning by KO in the third round after an earlier 8 count.
F5 - 78kg
Sharbell Sukkar (Hangar 4) vs Daniel Ellis (Cobram)
Sharbell returned to the ring after a few year absense and used his calm collected fight style to nullify Daniel, who has looked very impressive on the country shows up north recently. Daniel did not really fire up and didn't get to really use his pressure fighting style either, Sharbs winning UPD.
F6 - 81kg FTR
Daniel Way (Numurkah) vs Trevor Loomes (DMDs)
This fight was a well balanced match, and its been a match that should have happened years ago and will now have to happen again because it ended in a draw after 3 inconclusive rounds. Daniel put the pressure on multiple times but Trevor was very evasive and also had some slick counters, Trevor looking much better than his recent encounters, and Grasshopper never failing to impress.
F7 - 69kg FTR
Sam Edney (White Tiger) vs Marc Serafino (Sityodtong)
This was fight of the night, 5 rounds where the guys didn't give an inch and fought cleanly with technique and power. The young gun Sam looking in trouble some times but giving the 40 year old Marc a small cut above the eye, probably from a head kick which he tried many times. Sam eventually winning the fight SPD but it was close the whole time.
F8 - 83kg MMA
Alan Webb vs Chris Bradford (Black Panthers)
A bloodied Alan won SPD.
F9 - 65kg WMC Vic Title
Ashley Powell (Hangar 4) vs Phillip Lai (Sor.Jaiphet)
Ashley put the pressure on early, making it plain to see for everyone there that he was hungry for that belt and was going to put on a good show for his trainer, also the promoter. He listened to instructions well, used his timing well, and most importantly, made Phil fight a different fight to the one a lot of us saw in Shepparton recently for another title. Phil did not get to use his effective round kicks, instead suffering a lot of damage in the 3R from alternating knees and elbows, the second flurry getting stopped by the ref Ignatious. Ashley new WMC Vic champion.
F10 - 57kg WMC Vic Title
Tom Murray (Sor.Naksoo) vs Ahmed Hussein (Don Millar)
This fight was a great main event, it had many twists & turns. Tom fired up many times to give Ahmed a taste of main event status, but to his credit the vastly-improved Ahmed was there for the distance and had some good combos and techniques of his own. Tom has had twice as many fights as Ahmed but probably weighed about 5kg lighter at fight time but expereince prevailed and Tommy went on to win UPD and also got to wear a brand new WMC title belt.

MELBOURNE THAI CULTURAL FESTIVAL - FEDERATION SQUARE, 21st March, 2010
Ben ‘Bad Intentions’ Ackroyd fought Zhuwei Gow from Sityodtong Gym for the Thai Cultural Festival in Melbourne’s Federation Square.

Great job Ben! We look forward to seeing you back in the ring soon.
FORMER UFC AND PRIDE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION MINOTAURO NOGUEIRA - 27th FEB, 2010
Hangar 4 was lucky enough to be the only Victorian gym to host Antônio Rodrigo 'Minotauro' Nogueira with his coach and BJJ 6th degree black belt Allan Goes.
After a typical Brazilian late start, Nogueira and Goes started the seminar in full gi to show their respect to the art of BJJ. After a quick change clothes, the first half of the seminar was MMA based, with students working wrestling, striking and controlling moves against the cage.
The second half of the seminar was strictly BJJ, with both Big Nog and Goes showing the Hangar students some serious submissions.
After 2 ½ hours, both Nogueria and Goes spoke to the students about their love and respect for the Gracie heritage and the BJJ lifestyle. After their impassioned speeches, both guys posed for photos and signed autographs, taking each and every request.
The afternoon seminar had the added bonus of the students having the opportunity to roll with both Big Nog and Goes. It was a great day for everyone that attended.
Special thanks go out to Big Nog’s manager Jorge Guimaraes (who also manages Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, Jose Aldo and many more top Brazilian fighters) and Zebra Mats’ Pat Rottura, who both made this great day possible.
