The difference in the onset was already interesting. Veličkovič entered the arena in the Bobycentrum in Brno in front of a thousand fans for a song by the group Coldplay and fought with emotions. The Serb had tears in his eyes, all the other chills all over his body. Kozma built on the classic, the jingle from the cult series Baywatch. He talked to fans, especially those dressed in pink.
Novotný: The only and unquestionable King Kozma
The Czech champion guarded the dreaded kicks of Veličkovič with exceptions, he pushed through his way of fighting. He tormented his opponent, threw him, and intervened from his stance. His elbows were sharp as always. In the 3rd round, he survived a critical moment, when he collected a high kick and shakenly performed the so-called Chicken dance.
He fell at the challenger’s feet, but instead of ground and pound, he erroneously tried to strangle. Kozma escaped, stepping up from that moment. It graduated with perhaps two minutes of pressure in the 4th round until the intervention of the referee.

David Kozma and his story:
“We are incredibly proud to be our champion. The only and unquestionable king. Not only of this weight, but of the entire Octagon, “said the organization’s promoter Ondřej Novotný.
The “Pink Panther” was also praised by the former title challenger Israel Adesanya in the UFC and currently the top ten middleweight Kelvin Gastelum. The American co-commented on the English version.
Bojan Veličkovič and his story:
Dancer Keita destroyed Red, he wants a legend
“I think (Red) is a little overrated here. And I have no idea why. I have already fought with better and stronger ones, “said 23-year-old Losene Keita, confidently in the trailer for the match according to the odds, with a 6-0 balance in smaller organizations. Unfortunately for Karol Ryšavý, he supported the statement with deeds.
The Guinean, who also represents Belgium, has launched a cannonade since the beginning. Dynamic combinations hit the Slovak, after the blows he tightened the mesh. Keita resembled Clubber Lang’s boxing machine from the cult Rocky. He sent the redhead to the ground four times in less than three minutes, and after the last knockdown he was left out of breath.
Keita, who, according to his own words, came to support 60 fans, danced in celebration after the match and was full of energy. He continued making confident statements during the interview.
“There are no limits, I have come for everything! You have Ivan Buchinger. Why are he three titles? He’ll lose, I’m the best. I’ll kick his ass anywhere. I want to write my name in the history of the Octagon, “shouted” Black Panther. ”
Ronald Paradeiser has already called Keita on the social network, and the reaction of the first and only Oktagon champion in two scales, Ivan Buchinger, will undoubtedly be interesting. The Slovak legend was to compete against Kozm for the third title at Saturday’s tournament, and an attempt at a historic record was prevented by a knee injury.
Paulus: I am the future of Slovak MMA
Roman Paulus defeated the slight favorite Petr Gabal in a duel of talents after two rounds of the dominant third. “I have a young face, I will be an outsider with each other. But understand, I am the future of this sport in Slovakia. I’m sorry, maybe it sounds like I have a big ego. But I say it modestly, I am the future of the Slovak MMA, “said the 21-year-old SFG representative Paulus with a balance sheet of 3-1.
Roman Paulus and his story:
Naruszczka challenged Hoška from a mouse hole
The original Polish challenger Carlos Vémol for the middleweight title (“Terminator” did not start due to injury) Marcin Naruszczka returned to the winning wave after two controversial losses with Samuel “Pirate” Krištofič and David Hošek.
The finalist of the 1st Octagon of the Challenge, Jakub Běle, was troubled by his weary style in mesh nails. Already a 38-year-old six-year-old asked for revenge with Hošek, who he said was “hiding in a mouse hole”.
Salčák ended his career with a loss
Czech Pavel “Salin” Salčák lost to Al Matava in the last match of his career. An exotic fighter representing American Sam took the initiative at the end of Round 1. In the beginning of the second, he hit a domestic fighter by the wire and won the TKO. Salčák was sewn immediately after the fight, he did not have time to say goodbye to the fans in the octagon.
The special end of the Viking, he drew energy with the onset
Two-meter Thomas Narmo, who also appeared in the popular Vikings series, entered the Octagon with a 4-0 record. He attracted fans by appearing on social networks, and multiplied his attention with energetic adventures. But that was all for him.
Former heavyweight title challenger Daniel Dittrich has demonstrated greater technical sophistication and quality. Narmo wrapped himself up at the end of the first round, the Czech fighter gave him blows from the back. During the break, Nor announced that some were heading to the nape of the neck and did not start the 2nd round.
