KENTISH TOWN, England -- “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 11 alum
Paraisy put on a performance that reflected every aspect of his
character to defeat Jack Mason in
the main event of
Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 43 on Saturday at the HMV
Paraisy dropped his foe and then finished him with brutal elbows at
3:50 of the third. Up to that point, he had showboated and taunted
Mason as he built up a big points lead on the feet.
Even when his mind was wandering, Paraisy never looked in trouble.
Once he smelled a finish, it was game over.
“In the cage, I am fighting myself more than my opponent,” said
Paraisy. “I respect Jack; I did those things because I am angry at
myself. I have had a bad life, with fights all the time, and I need
to keep myself on track. I’ve lost a lot over the years. Now, I
hope I can turn it round. I didn’t expect the finish tonight, and I
Duffy maintained his unbeaten record with a unanimous decision
victory -- 30-26, 30-27 and 29-27 -- over London Shootfighters
The first two rounds looked to be straight out of a grappling
match, with Duffy showcasing his speedy transitions. However,
Heagney was always in the fight and put his heart and soul into a
guillotine choke attempt at the end of the first.
The longer the fight went, the more dominant Duffy became. On the
feet, he was as sharp as a razor, and Heagney was reluctant to drag
himself up after standups.
“I’m always looking for the finish,” said Duffy. “That’s the kind
of fighter I am, but Francis has been in with a lot of tough
people. I hope that this will be a stepping stone that takes me on
to better things.”
Entwistle moodily strode to the cage for his grudge match
Wheeler. Since Wheeler was disqualified for striking Entwistle
on the back of the head at CWFC 41 in April, local forums have
buzzed with talk of the rematch.
This time, there was no controversy.
Wheeler was waiting for Entwistle’s powerful low kicks and
countered with crisp punches. Entwistle spent the whole fight on
his back or against the cage eating shots. The end came when a
nifty reverse triangle earned a gentle tap.
The arena erupted as Wheeler did a full Tito Ortiz
gravedigger routine, as his fallen prey was shuffled away to the
locker room as quick as his unsteady legs would allow him.
Kraniotakes faced a game Dave Keeley,
who showed some decent grappling skills but was finally snared in a
fight-ending armbar at the 3:48 mark of round one. It was
Kraniotakes’ second consecutive win since being upset by Ajlin Ahmic
at WFC 13.
Sizeland mixed up shots to the head and body on the ground,
softening up Craig White
before taking the Team Lionheart fighter’s back. After a few more
punches to the head, Sizeland applied a rear-naked choke that
forced a tapout at 4:15 of the opening period.
O'Keefe ended Artem
Lobov's recent run with a rear-naked choke in the final stanza.
O'Keefe dropped the Lithuanian with a punch before finally scoring
with the submission at 1:24 of round three.
MMA Clinic’s Adam Edwards
made short work of Ben Crook,
finishing with an armbar 1:07 of the first frame.

following an extended beating.

Howell with a sickening knee to the ribs at 2:26 of round
