$1 Million Tournament Opening Round

Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu and Sasaki Shinji came out of their corners cautiously, throwing a few strikes to gauge distance and timing. Khuukhenkhuu found the sweet spot in just over 1 minute of the first round, going in with lightning punches that sent Sasaki to sleep before his head hit the canvas.

Tom Santos made a stunning repeat performance by knocking quickly out Nam Yui-Chul. Nam decided to immediately come out of the corner and strike, but Santos was on point and dropped Nam in just 7 seconds.

Ronys Torres showed Elnur Agaev very quickly how good his jiujitsu can control the situation. Torres grabbed ahold of a kick, rushed Agaev to the canvas, and from side control he was able to snap on a kimura and get the submission victory before the halfway mark of the first round.

Shimoishi Kota proved that experience was a major factor against Park Dae-Sung. Shimoishi pushed the action into his foray of grappling where he dominated Park, getting the tap in the second round by back choke.

Nandin-Erdene and Toninho Furia quickly engaged in an expected striking war, and the huge win came for the Mongolian when he landed two clean shots that dropped the Brazilian. Nandin-Edrene stunned the crowd with a TKO in just 3:25 of the first round.

Mansour Barnaoui showed that the penalty points Kim Chang-Hyun earned for missing weight would not matter on the scorecards. Barnaoui secured a figure four from the back standing, and eventually tapped out Kim by RNC on the ground in the first round.

Shamil Zavurov gave Leo Kuntz everything in the book, and he proved to be incredibly tough. Zavurov resorted to strong wrestling in the final round and earned the Unanimous Decision.

Red Romero and Baoyingcang put on a thrilling first match opening round. Bao eventually overwhelmed Romero with power and striking, getting the second round TKO.
