KENTISH TOWN, England -- “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 11 alum Norman 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 Forum.

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 am delighted.”

Joseph Duffy maintained his unbeaten record with a unanimous decision victory -- 30-26, 30-27 and 29-27 -- over London Shootfighters representative Francis Heagney.

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.”

Ian Entwistle moodily strode to the cage for his grudge match against Brad 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.

Andreas 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.

Brett 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.

Steve 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.

Olivier Pastor ended Niko Gjoka’s agony at 2:14 of the third round with a technical knockout following an extended beating.

Danny Roberts of Next Generation Liverpool stopped David Howell with a sickening knee to the ribs at 2:26 of round two.

Dave Smith’s knees in the clinch gave him a slight edge in his entertaining scrap with Matthew Wise. The cards read 29-29, 30-29 and 29-28, giving Smith the majority decision.

In three, three-minute round amateur action, Adam Brealey, Ben Hajir and Charlie Watts claimed wins.
