Israel Fighting Championship (IFC), an event promoted by Renzo Gracie black belt Haim Gozali, shook up Tel Aviv this Tuesday.
A number of Jiu-Jitsu aces saw action and used the gentle art to overcome their opponents. Among them, Daniel Gracie submitted Martin Wojcik with a first-round rear-naked choke to notch his fifth win in eight MMA fights (2l-1d).
Rilion Gracie black belt Alexandro Ceconi put on a show of his own. He captured his second MMA win with a triangle on Vitaly Shemetov, in just 4:48 min. Now Thiago Minu landed an armbar on Ariel Abergel in just 35 seconds.
Another ground-fighting specialist, Jeff Monson was another who finished his fight in the first round, against Sergey Shemetov. Of the other big names in action, Frank Trigg and Rameau Sokoudjou won too, but via knockout and decision, respectively.
Former UFC Hermes França, yet another black belt in action, ended up dropping a unanimous decision to Moshe Kaitz.
