MMA: Nigeria, Cameroon Shine At Abuja Fight Night

It was a drama filled fight night in Abuja at the weekend as Cameroon’s Octave Ayinde defeated Nigeria’s Vincent Ebenezer in event’s main card.
This was after another Nigerian, Yahaya Yahuza, had defeated Christopher Moly of DR Congo in the -84kg weight class.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a total of 16 fighters slugged it out for honour and glory in eight blockbuster bouts at the Mo Arena, Abuja.

The Abuja Mixed Martial Arts Fight night was organized by Akala Spirit of the Warrior in collaboration with the Nigerian Mixed Martial Arts Federation (NMMAF).

Cameroon’s Ayinde wasted no time to assert his dominance as he quickly grappled and wrestled Nigeria’s Ebenezer to the ground, unloading a torrent of elbows to the head to secure the finish.
The effect of the strikes made blood gush out from the head of Ebenezer as the referee had to intervene, calling the attention of the medics,

He then awarded a Technical Knockout (TKO) decision in favour of the Cameroonian, barely three minutes into the first round of the -77kg weight class encounter.
It was, however, joy for Nigeria in the 84kg weight class as Yahuza remained unbeaten in his MMA career, forcing ersthwhile undefeated DR Congo’s Moly to retire early in the first half of a pulsating encounter.
Moly was quite energetic at the onset as he looked for an early take down, using his wrestling and his physicality to get the better of Yahuza.
But, in a quick turn of events, the Congolese found himself being beaten to his own game when Yahuza wriggled free, and tried to execute the Brazilian jujitsu technique as he went in search of the winner.
He flipped his opponent backwards to the canvas and then timed a well executed rare naked choke, which forced the Congolese to tap out with less than one minute left in the very first round
