Tough night for home team, as Kanreikai goes 1-7 at K.E.F. 4 amateur event (full & quick results)

K.E.F. (Kanreikai Extreme Fighting) 4 went down Saturday night in St-Charles-Borromée, near Joliette, about 45 minutes north of Montreal, where nine amateur fights took place under a big top tent in the yard behind the Kanreikai karate dojo.

The approximately 200 fans gathered for the event caught a tough night for the Kanreikai team, who came away with only a single win in eight fights.

Despite the home team’s poor showing, the crowd appeared to thoroughly enjoy the fights, only two of which went the distance. Of the seven finishes, six were submissions, along with a single high intensity KO.

Stephane Vigneault and Loic-Pascal Magnier served as the evening’s referees. Sanctioned by the ‘Federation Quebecoise de Boxe Mixte Amateur’ (FQBM), Saturday’s fights took place under amateur rules. On top of being in a ring, the three rounds were two minutes each, instead of five. Fighters wore 12 ounce gloves and shin pads. Elbow, knee, and heel strikes, hammer-fists, and submissions involving twisting (e.g. heel hooks), were all prohibited.

Main Event
155Miky Houle (Kanreikai) v. Mathieu Allard (Iatskevitch Submission)
Allard wins by split judges’ decision.

Mathieu Allard (center) got the split decision win in KEF 4's main event.

– Sporting a wrestling singlet, Allard put his fighting base to work in the main event, pulling out a close fight with fan favourite Miky ‘the Wolf’ Houle. After Houle took a close 1st round, doing more damage on the ground after his takedown than Allard did with his own, Allard began turning the tide in the 2nd, grinding out a takedown, defending Houle’s attempts, and controlling the fight on the ground from side-control, before later taking Houle’s back. By the 3rd, Houle began having trouble closing the distance, as Allard would land punches as he came in. Landing a takedown later in the round, Allard sealed the deal by advancing to full-mount and landing some ground-and-pound as the fight ended.

A very solid main event, high on action, with the drama extended as ring announcer Eric Emard slowly announced the decision, judge’s card by judge’s card. A second straight win for Allard after a TKO last month at EFL 1, and a second straight loss for Houle, who drops to 6-4 as an amateur.


Co-Main Event

165Ricardo Moreau (Kanreikai) v. Julien Ravart (Orion MMA)
Ravard wins by arm-bar submission at 1:41 of Round 1.

Ravart (2nd from the left), with his Orion MMA team, after getting the 1st round submission.

– After trading briefly to open the fight, Moreau dove in for a takedown after Ravard landed a punch. Sprawling, Ravard pushed back hard enough to get Moreau on his back and enter his guard. After later taking his back, Ravard maneuvered and locked in an arm-bar, getting the tap as he fully extended the hold.

A solid showing for the ever-active, lanky Ravart, and another tough loss for the bulky Moreau, who continues to struggle as a fighter, dropping to 1-6 as an amateur.

180Sylvain Tremblay (Kanreikai) v. Bruno-Pierre Dubois (Juvaldo)
Dubois wins by rear-naked choke submission at 1:14 of Round 1.
– Stepping in as a short-notice replacement for teammate Kevin Lampron, grey-haired 38 year-old Tremblay looked outmatched against the more experienced Dubois, who made a 7+ hour trip from Val d’Or for the fight. After trading short punches in the clinch, the fight opened up. Dubois began throwing hooks, and Tremblay reacted by shooting in for a takedown. Dubois sprawled him, maneuvered to take his back, and finished him with a rear-naked choke.

170Jesse Lafontaine (Kanreikai) v. Alex Galarneau (Stevie Boxe)
Galarneau wins by rear-naked choke submission at 1:51 of Round 1.
– Galaraneau was in charge for most of this short fight, getting the better of Lafontaine on the feet, and taking control after the action hit the ground as the fighters jostled for position in the clinch. Taking Lafontaine’s back, landing punches, and again taking the back a bit later from the bottom, Galarneau locked in the rear-naked. The 10-second clap sounded right after, but Lafontaine, unable to hold on, submitted to the choke soon after.

150Alex Lachapelle (Kanreikai) v. Christian Ouellet (Gym Action)
Ouellet wins by KO (back-kick) at 1:51 of Round 1.
– Lachapelle got clipped early in the fight, eating a solid uppercut from Ouellet, which seemed to slightly daze him for most of the round. Ouellet took advantage, landing with straights, jabs, and hooks, as a tenacious Lachapelle battled back. Opting not to block punches with his hands, instead relying only on head movement, Ouellet ended up eating a few shots. Landing a head kick as time began running down, Ouellet finished the fight by spectacular KO, connecting forcefully with a back kick to Lachapelle’s stomach. Winded, Lachapelle crumpled over, and fell to the ground, moaning in pain, though he seemed fine a minute later when Ouellet was announcer as the winner.

140Junior Lantin (Kanreikai) v. Samuel Beauchemin (Iatskevitch Submission)
Lantin wins by unanimous judges’ decision
– This close, high tempo fight began with the fighters blasting away with punches, Beauchemin favouring right straights, and eventually getting a takedown which Lantin reversed, getting his back. Lantin landed another takedown later in the round, again taking Beauchemin’s back. In the 2nd, Beauchemin went back to the right straights, as Lantin fired back with uppercuts, but landed less. Lantin missed a head kick near the end of the round, and Beauchemin took advantage of the opening to buckle him with a straight. In the 3rd, the fighters again traded, with Lantin eventually getting a takedown and hitting Beauchemin with punches as the latter turtled. The fight went back to the feet, and Lantin helped seal the decision with a last second trip takedown, landing a diving punch as time ran out, and gaining his team’s only win for the night.

190Evan Sanchez (Academie Pro Star MMA) v. Kevin Dellow (Zahabi MMA)
Dellow wins by arm-bar submission at 1:50 of Round 2.
– The bigger Sanchez was aggressive from the start, taking advantage of Dellow‘s slight ring rust (he last fought in March). Sanchez threw powerful punches, Dellow reacting with takedowns he couldn’t complete. Sprawling one of the attempts, Sanchez ended up in Dellow’s guard. Dellow put his jiu-jitsu background to work, almost sinking in the rarely seen gogoplata choke from his back. In the 2nd round, Dellow began setting up his takedown attempts with punches, eventually completing one and getting side-control on Sanchez. Dellow out-finessed his opponent for the finish, getting across Sanchez’s back as he attempted to turn over, and sinking in a face-down arm-bar. Dellow had to fully extend the hold to the point of bending Sanchez’s elbow back before he could get the tap.

140Danny Villeneuve (Kanreikai) v. Paul-André Sénésac (Team Extrême)
Sénésac wins by arm-bar submission at 1:32 of Round 1.
– Giving up 17 pounds to the larger Sénésac, Villeneuve was outworked and outpowered in the fight. Sénésac landed a takedown after the fighters initially locked up in the clinch, got to full mount, and sunk in the arm-bar for the quick tap as Villeneuve attempted to escape from the ground.

160Dave Ladouceur Yanakis (Kanreikai) v. Éric Dastout (Gym Action)
Dastout wins by guillotine at 1:14 of Round 3.
– After the fighters split the first two rounds, Dastout taking the 1st by controlling Yanakis on the ground after getting taken down, and Yanakis the 2nd, achieving full mount and later landing a hip-toss takedown, Dastout finished in the 3rd, jumping on to Yanakis for a standing guillotine. Yanakis worked to fight him off, eventually opting to slam Dastout down. Unfortunately for Yanakis, this allowed Dastout to sink the choke in deeper, and soon after get the tap, kicking off an evening full of submission finishes.
