Francis Carmont vs. Costa Philippou -- Middleweight bout

If you saw one round of this, you saw it all. Francis Carmont, an enormous middleweight, big brother'd Costa Philippou, out-muscling him with takedowns and top control in almost every minute of the fight. Carmont marched out confidently and tossed Philippou to the mat and alternated between defending submission attempts, some of which were surprisingly effective in the first round, and mashing down punches and hammer-fists.

Each round was worthy of 10-8 consideration, as Philippou was unable to offer even the slightest shred of effective or threatening offense and Carmont put him on his back within a minute in every round. (One judge rendered a 10-8 with a 30-26 tally.) With the win, "Limitless" is unbeaten after six turns in the Octagon and soaring on an 11-fight win streak.

  • Francis Carmont defeats Costa Philippou by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27 x 2)
