M-1 Challenge Kansas City Recap

From FightTicker.com:

Friday night’s M-1 Challenge event in Kansas City, Kansas was an exciting event. Team World battled Team Turkey, Team France went against Team England, and the two undefeated teams, Team Finland and Team U.S. East, also went head to head.

And, I was ringside for the event. Here are my thoughts.

Each fight had two five-minute rounds with a tie breaker when necessary, as it was for the very first fight, which saw Akin Duran from Turkey defeat Romano De Los Reyes. Each team had one fighter in each weight class starting from lightweight at 155 lbs. to heavyweight at over 205 lbs.Those of you not acquainted with M-1 would be surprised to learn that stars such as Pat Miletich, Matt Hughes, and Rich Franklin — and others — fought in M-1 early in their careers.
