Well the battle just continues to rage on! At AFC 7 we were treated to a fascinating contest between the young up and comer Kai Kara-France and the experienced Gustavo Falciroli. The fight was actually far more even than most would have thought in the early stages; Kara-France used quick and effective strikes to keep Falciroli off balance which allowed him to stay far enough away to avoid any damage or the takedown.
As the fight continued Gustavo started to find his range and also initiated the clinch which began to trouble Kai a little bit. Towards the conclusion of the fight both men were positioned in the corner of the ring when suddenly Kai fell out and the ref stopped the fight. From the position I was standing it looked like Kai had feel through the ring ropes whilst clinching with Gustavo at which time his head hit an object on the table and as a result he was no longer able to continue. Replays on the other hand showed Gustavo landing a perfectly placed knee that stunned Kai and that was the reason he fell through the ropes.
Since that eventful night neither party has really agreed on what happened; and with the recent announcement of AFC 9 this coming May Kara-France asked Falciroli a simple question: “Are we guna do this again Gustavo Falciroli?” Gustavo’s reply: “Have you decided to talk now??? You should be ashamed of yourself to request that Kai Kara-France. After u tell everyone why you truly went out of the ring you may get ur wish, just remember there is no place to hide inside the cage.
There is obviously still a lot of heat here and it seems the AFC fans would like to see these two go at it again. Let’s wait and see what the future holds… but if these two do ever lock horns again I’d be confident in saying there will be a definitive finish this time!!
