CFC 3 Quick Results
Over 3,000 people were packed into the Winnipeg Convention Centre to see a great night of fights. In the main event, previously unbeaten Rodrigo Munduruca was knocked out by Dan Christison in the second round. Munduruca took the first round quite handily with some heavy ground and pound. His lack of finish was his undoing as Christison knocked him out early in the second round.
The Canadian Fighting Championship might as well permanently give the Fight of the Night award to Winnipeger Eric Perez. The Perez Dispenser likes to put on a show, always gets in trouble during his fights, and always pulls it out with a win. It takes two fighters to make a Fight of the Night and Ben Nguyen gave Eric Perez all that he could handle. After losing the first round, Nguyen was countering Perez’ increasingly wild blows with an effective left hook that had Perez wobbling in the second. However, Perez went to the body and legs of South Dakota’s Nguyen and then the end started with a fantastic flying knee from Perez that led to a knock down followed up by a ground and pound stoppage.
In the semi-main event, Claude Patrick showed why he does not belong in regional shows. He dominated a very strong Dan Grandmaison. He mounted him early and rained elbows on The Big House. After getting back to their feet, Patrick finished Grandmaison off with a Guillotine. There was talk of Patrick moving down to 155 and fighting at CFC 4. That would be fantastic but one must suspect Patrick should be heading to the UFC or Strikeforce instead.
