Renan Secco (brown belt) – Winner – Absolute
Some great match ups, and the Absolute final saw a epic back and forth battle between Renan Secco and Ben Boyce, with Renan securing the win by points.
Great turnout of athletes competing, as well as a great turnout of spectators.
Thanks to everyone that competed from Carlson Gracie New Zealand, Carlson Gracie Wanaka, and Ultimate MMA Invercargill.
Thanks also to our main sponsor of the night Fresh Choice Queenstown and Tony Wild, as well as Queenstown Taxi’s.
Referring from Jose was much appreciated, it is a hard job to referee close to 40 fights back to back with no break. So thanks for that.
Overall a solid event and one that we hope to repeat again in the future.
We will post videos and photos of the fights shortly.
See you all at training as per normal.
