m-1_2009_6076Anche l’UFC 95 di londra ha attirato l’attenzione di tutti, M-1 Global ha tenuto il primo evento della stagione a Tacoma, Washington ( USA).
Il pubblico è arrivato e gli incontri (non li ho visti, ma sotto vi riporto dei commenti NdR) sembrano essere stati interessanti.


Team USA West ha sconfitto il brasile di una misura mentre a sorpresa il team Imperiale ( i russi ex Red Devil) hanno subito una sconfitta dal Team South Korea. I Finlandesi hanno distrutto il Benelux. Come abbiamo gia raccontato qui e qui l’ M-1 abbraccia la formula del torneo al meglio dei 5..

L’evento, fuori dall’america, è stato trasmesso in streaming dal loro sito ufficiale.
Dopo il debutto, il prossimo giro sarà a Sofia, Bulgaria con Team Bulgaria vs. Team USA South, Team China vs. The World Team and Team Turkey vs. Team Australia/New Zealand. I membri dei rispettivi team saranno annunciati a breve.

I commenti di chi l’ha visto

“I commenti, lasciati in inglese per non snaturare:
I was able to watch this through a mirrored site and I was more impressed than

dissapointed. I’m normally not a fan of team formats but much respect for m-1 for

putting together a greatly produced event. I personally didn’t know many of the

fighters but there was some amazing matches that were put on. Most fans will not

be dissapointed when this airs on hdnet. I know for a fact I will be recording it

for collection..
M-1 is really starting to become a big player. Maybe not on the US stage, but all

over the rest of the world their stock has been rising for some time now. ”

“The event was awesome.  Got to talk to a bunch of the fighters.  Some things I

didn’t like.  Ran a little long.  Started at 7 and wasn’t over until around

midnight.  They ran 2 5 min rounds and it still took forever.  The crowd was a

little uneducated too.  A lot of boos when it would go to the ground.  But the

guys were still working.  The refs were playing into the crowd too and kept

standing them back up.  Thought this played too much into the hands of the

strikers.  No elbows to the face either. “
