At Angel’s Fighting 8 on 15 October, welterweight champion Bae Myung-Ho earned a 30 second tap to a guillotine in a non-title match.
Myung-Ho Bae faced a late notice stand in, Yuto Nakajima, when Rodrigo Caporal was sick and missed weight. Bae spared the brave Nakajima from much harm by jumping guard with a guillotine and getting the tap quickly.
It was expected that striker Min-Gu Lee would make quick work of green grappler Kyohei Hagiwara, but just how was the surprising part. Hagiwara came out punching, and Lee came back with a trip to side control, from where he positioned and got a tap to an armbar.
Jin-Soo Seo landed sporadic shots on Hyo-Min Lee through the first round without much coming back at him; he even showboated. Lee tried to put something out in the second with a level change and shoot, but he got mounted and punched out for his efforts. Seo saw the towel being thrown in so he was able to stop his assault.
Sung-Won Jo and Tae-Ho Jin took their turns putting on the heat with a first round going to Jo and a second to Jin. Jo was able to get a reversal and finish strong, so the judges awarded him the split decision.
In the only women’s bout on the card, Team MAD’s Hyun-Ji Jang and MMA Story’s Seo-Woo Yang threw kicks and punches at each other without pause in the first. Jang upped her output and landed a lot on the second, so Yang came back with a takedown and near back choke. Jang reversed a takedown to finish strong with her own back take, and she earned the split decision.
Ji-Won Kang weathered a body kick and some smashing from Myung-Hwan Kim, but was able to come back with a knockdown of his own, and earned the first round TKO.
