Yesterday in Panama saw Venum Victory World Series crown two more tournament champions who will be making their way to the finals of a larger tournament in Paris on November 28th. Chicago native Ian Alexander shocked many by defeating veteran Mohamed El Mir and then going on to defeat Kader El Kamouchi after the fight was ruled a draw, leading to an extension round and saw El Kamouchi refuse to continue the fight.
For the Rhinos Romanian Claudiu Istrate picked up a win over Lucas Alsina and then won a big TKO victory over the more spent Rafael Da Souza who had taken John Granville to a decision via an extension round.
The highlights of the night may have been the super fights, though. Legendary figure on the circuit Marco Pique was expected to float his way past Marcus Fisher before Fisher turned up the heat on Pique throughout the fight and was able to pick up a huge decision victory over Pique. In the main event Armen Petrosyan and Luis Castaneda went to war with Petrosyan ultimately winning, but Castaneda impressing everyone involved.
