Semmy Schilt (Golden Glory, NL) def. Alexey Ignashov (Team Scorpion, BY) via unanimous decision*
Round 1: Sylvester looks understandably shook as the fight begins. He shoots in for a weak waistlock and wades back out. Overeem lands a glancing left, a solid knee and another left and Sylvester goes down. They stand back up and Overeem connects with a few more punches before taking mercy and locking up a standing guillotine.
#12: -70kg K-1 Rules - 3R x 3 min.
Nieky Holzken (Golden Glory, NL) def. Faldir Chahbari (Beast of the East, NL) via unanimous decision* in an extension round
Round 1: Jocz drags Siyar down immediately and tries to pass to the side, but he's tied up and Bahadurzada works back to full guard. Jocz postures up and rains down a few solid shots to the chin of Siyar, who counters with an upkick. Jocz goes back down, to side control now, and straightens out the left arm of Bahadurzada, looking for a kimura. Siyar does a good job of keeping Jocz out of mount and pops back up with a minute left. Siyar charges forward and ties up against the ropes, but Jocz executes a nice trip and puts Siyar in a bully headlock in the corner. Siyar gets up again and tries to send some knees to the gut of Jocz from a bodylock, but Jocz takes the round. 10-9 Jocz.
Round 2: The Afghani defends a takedown and finds himself in Jocz' guard. Not much going on in the first few minutes as Bahadurzada attempts limited ground and pound and Jocz can't do much from underneath but open and close his guard. For the last 90 seconds of the round, I'm waiting for a referee restart, but it never comes. 10-9 Bahadurzada.
Round 3: The fighters clinch and Siyar scores with a few knees to the grill of Jocz. Now Jocz backs up and Siyarz pushes forward, connecting with a solid one-two combo in the corner before depositing Jocz on his back. I have a feeling that's about the end of this one. Jocz trying to stay active with punches and an open guard as Siyar scoots him around the ring. Midway through the round, the ref stands them up. Jocz takes underhooks against the ropes and tries for another trip, but Siyar reverses and falls into guard. Some elbows, punches and upkicks from the bottom by Jocz, but I don't think it'll be enough to take it on the cards. 10-9 Bahadurzada.
Bahadurzada takes it by majority decision. Props to whichever judge scored the fight a draw though. I'm with that.

Errol Zimmerman (Golden Glory, NL) def. Wendell Roche (It’s Showtime, NL) via unanimous decision* in an extension round
Just seconds into the fight, the Russian hits a charging Overeem with a one-two combo and busts the Dutchman's nose up. It's a bad, bloody break and the ringside doctor calls a stop to the action as soon as she has a close look at it.
