  9. SAFA Charity Fight Night & Ursus MMA Fight Night Recap: June 9th, June 16th Published by Scarlett Remington, 06/19/2023 Photography by Shun Nakamura, 06/09/2023, 06/16/2023 June 9th, Vespucci Sports Charity Fight Night - Full Gallery Link (Click Here) Starting with last week's knockout Charity event, SAFA’s first “Celebrity Cage Match”. The final event on the night's line-up, was ex-senator and casino mogul “Edgars Gudlevkskis” against his opponent, one of the city's top influencers, DJ Doux. For me it was incredibly unexpected, coming out of the left field, as it were. Before we could see this fight, however, there were two under-cards and a main event on SAFA’s weekly Fight Night. As usual we saw rookie amateurs and long time hobbyists well known at SAFA go head to head against each other. With four fights on the night's line up, I was in for a good show. Especially seeing as SAFA’s new host, Barry Dunn, returned to bring an air of showmanship to the combat event series. This week Adam Kaminski returned as referee, while his wife Noelle was among the judges panel, accompanied by experts Endymion Atlas, and Damian Samaras. Showing the promotions dedication to providing the best events possible, there was once again a bar catered by The Blue Lion. As well as betting available through pyramid-virtual.com, Pyramid Sports Betting. In the first fight, we were to see two rookies, Jaythan “The Javanese Juggernaut” Glediansyah, and Cody Hewitt. However it seemed a last minute drop out resulted in Jaythan needing replacement, seemingly he got cold feet which unfortunately also seems to happen a lot more than you’d think. Cody Hewitt, was apparently already replacing someone. Luckily, after a moment, we were blessed with Danijel “Munja” Aleksic in the octagon. Danijel is no rookie, and is well known around SAFA as a stiff competitor and skilled kickboxer. The first round started with both fighters testing each other's abilities, really taking it slow and trying to find an opening. Aleksic was a bit more aggressive than his opponent but Hewitt highlighted some great defensive tactics. At the end of the round Hewitt was looking steadily ahead, and after a brief moment we got right into round two. The second round was quick and full of furious strikes. Though rocked by the last round, Aleksic took a slow start in the second round. Hewitt, maintaining momentum, K.O’d his opponent in swift fashion with a stiff right hook. This meant Hewitt was walking away with his first SAFA victory under his belt. And while Aleksic didn’t show out the best tonight, he’s still without a doubt a name to look for on any fight card. Next up we have an Ex-Navy sailor from Portland, Oregon, Takenaka Kido. His opponent, Chechen warrior Malik Varayev is a known factor in the competition, a skilled wrestler. This is another rookie versus established amateur fight, though definitely not your average rookie, Kido’s Navy background lends him some credibility going into the sport. The Navy is renowned for their own fighting competitions, the most popular among servicemen and women being boxing. This led me to be pretty excited to see this fight, no longer are we seeing the average street brawler that you might come across at other promotions, the overall skill level at the competition is clearly on the rise. Heading into round one we see Takanaka start off defensively, he doesn’t want this wrestler to get him on his back. Likewise Varayev is careful of Takanaka’s takedown technique, he tries to strike from range and put Takanaka off balance. Takanaka keeps his cool and Varayev reaches the end of his tank and slows down at the end of the round, allowing Takanaka to score a takedown before the bell. Round two starts off in a furious exchange of combo’s from each side, though neither fighter can afford to keep that up. Takanaka creates some distance, Varayev pursues but is hammered by counter strikes as he tries to land hits on his opponent until finally one lands square on his cap and sends him tumbling to the mat unconscious. Takanaka takes the action packed bout with a spectacular knockout. In the last match before the charity event, the night's official Main Event, a five round fight between BJJ and Krav Maga technician Frank “Gyrene” Raynor and challenger Alexander Castillo, a SAFA newcomer. Though as we’ve seen from Zack Lucero’s debut, being a rookie doesn’t mean much because the team at SAFA clearly works hard to put people of similar skill levels in the ring together. Who knows where they found this newcomer, but if they gave him a main event I have no doubt that it’s going to be a show worth watching. The first of five rounds kicked off, right away the two are showing their skill and calculativeness as they probe one another for openings. They start off by trying to gain a few points, and seeing where they can completely overcome their opponents. Castillo finds his opening and drills into the opposition's defense. Round one ended with Castillo appearing a bit ahead, though it was still anyone’s match. The second round Castillo took the same approach, though this time Gyrene’s defense holds firm and he counters sternly, scoring a knockdown on his opponent in turn. The third round Castillo changed gears slightly, his fancy footwork and aggressive striking breaking through Gyrene’s defense in awe inspiring fashion. The fourth round was over incredibly fast, Castillo knocked out his opponent with a hard midsection shot. He was really working Gyrene’s abs this fight and it took the toll in the end, resulting in a hand raise for Castillo. First to be introduced in SAFA’s first Celebrity Cage Match, Edgars Gudlevskis, owner of acclaimed Pyramid Sports Bets. Of Latvian origin, Edgars is a well known businessman and politician in Los Santos, and is not someone I expected to see in the ring even if I had heard he was a fan of the sport. His opponent, frenchman and local music industry legend, Julian “Doux” Lebeau of AKAN Records, is also an MMA fan though similarly I am surprised to see him fighting here tonight. The winner's chosen charity will be taking home a healthy donation. As they make their way to the ring both men look excited, and well prepared. Neither of them has an air of nervousness about them, and it sounds like they’ve both been training hard for this moment. Round one starts and Doux comes out swinging on Edgars, who takes a rough looking punch to the face. Wasting no time however, Edgars strikes back with a right hook and clips Doux. They spend a second locked in a clinch, sending blows while grappling, then break apart and go straight back into throwing combos. The first round is extremely high octane, and both show skill as they deftly slip and counter strike each other's jabs. Doux maintains a slim points lead going into round two, he goes in on the bell extremely fast just like the first round, but this time Edgars slips and counter strikes. Doux takes the sign and changes up his strategy, both fighters take a slower approach trying to score points where they can without taking any hits themselves, but this mostly falls off as each exchange sees both fighters take a number of strikes from the others combo. The second round ends and Edgars has brought the score back neck and neck going into the final round. In the final round Edgars takes on a fully defensive strategy, purposefully staying on the back foot as Doux aggressively strikes in an attempt to punch right through Edgars’ guard. The crowd goes wild with cheers and jeers as the Referee gets between the fighters, Doux clearly out of breath and rocked. Both competitors showed grace and respect at the end of the fight, and took a moment to shout out their selected charities and announce an increase of donations, bringing the total dedication of this charity event to $400,000. All in all it was a truly spectacular event, the city should not sleep on any future SAFA events or you might miss out on a really great show. Plus with music from DJ Dano, and alcohol provided courtesy of The Blue Lion, makes the event a truly unique experience where you can get a good drink and watch an entertaining show. June 16th, Ursus MMA Fight Night - Full Gallery Link (Click Here) On to this week's event, where we saw more locals going head to head for the chance to be known as San Andreas’ best fighter. While we didn’t have a spectacle like the Celebrity Cage Match to look forward to tonight, we did have an entirely different treat. SAFA’s first ever female fight card, showing that the promotion only continues to grow. Another sign of the company's growth is that this event marks the move to 4 fight cards per night, expanding to 3 undercards and a main event. It was another amazing night with high energy host Barry Dunn, DJ Dano on the mix decks, Noelle Kaminska as Referee tonight and on the judges panel, Damian Samaras, Jackson Hayes, and Endymion Atlas. The first fight was the women's card, where we saw Amélie Lévesque face off against her opponent, Cleopatra Klaproth. Amélie is apparently a fighter from Montreal, a BJJ expert, and is known for cutting a path through the Bellicose circuit and dominating the competition. Cleopatra on the other hand, a Hawick local and self-proclaimed street fighter. Given the match ups we’ve seen at SAFA in the past I’m reluctant to count her out despite facing a decisively more ‘professional’ and technical opponent. Round one kicked off with a flurry of strikes from both sides. Each highlighting footwork, defense and counter striking. Watching the first round it was a lot closer than one might expect, in the end it was hard to determine if either had gained a lead and both women scored a knockdown. This seemingly put both fighters on notice as they both panicked to try and switch up their techniques several times in round two. Cleopatra however scored a knockdown and came up looking ahead on the fight cards at the end of the round. A bit more adjustment from Amélie in the third round, and perhaps a bit of exhaustion on Cleopatra’s side, meant that Amélie could score a final knockdown of her own before the clock ran out. After a moment of waiting for the Ref to consult the judges, a split decision had two judges scoring the fight as a draw. Though one judge, Jackson Hayes, scored 23-24, in favor of Klaproth. With the fight finished, Amélie Lévesque expressed disdain with having a draw on her record and loudly challenged Cleopatra to a rematch down the line, to which she happily accepted. In the second fight we saw Malik Varayev return to face off against Kendrick “Scarface” Robinson. Varayev, SAFA’s Chechen Warrior, is coming off a defeat last week and is clearly eager to show that he isn’t someone to count out. He’s training, and he’s after those main liners heads. His opponent, on the other hand, is coming off the back of a win in his debut match up, and is no doubt feeling confident in his ability to compete. This fight was quite the doozy, and it was over in a flash! Malik dominated his opponent in the first round, scoring a knockdown. The second round didn’t last much longer, Malik taking Scarface down and forcing a submission via a stunning rear naked choke, in what I believe is SAFA’s first submission finisher. As for the third fight of the night, we saw two sparring partners, Zack “The Spitfire” Lucero and Cody Hewitt go head to head. Zack, with one loss, zero wins, and Cody with the opposite record. The first two rounds were striking heavy, and mostly high action. Whereas by the end of the third round both fighters were slowly targeting one another, trying to run out the bell and win by the grace of the judges scores. This tactic paid off for Lucero, who was unanimously declared victor by the judges score. The final fight of the night was SAFA super star, Sam Morris, against Alexander Castillo. Both have proven to be some of the toughest competitors the state has ever seen. Castillo is a LS county Deputy and a Kickboxing aficionado. As for his opponent, Morris is a long time hobbyist and student of VS MMA, a wrestling and boxing knockout. The event kicks off and Morris puts on the heat against Castillo. They take four rounds, but Castillo struggles to keep up on the scorecards, he takes a knockdown in round three but gets knocked out in round four. It’s clear as one of SAFA’s best, Morris is striving to improve, and eventually challenge Yang for a rematch. Yang is without debate at the top of the MMA circuit at the moment, boasting an undefeated record in SAFA. But with that another show stopping smackdown of an event comes to an end, and I can honestly say it remains as one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a Friday night in Los Santos.
  10. Bellicose MMA Fights Showcasing Female and Male Warriors Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has emerged within San Andreas one of the most electrifying and inclusive combat sports of our time. In a recent event that captivated audiences worldwide, an exhilarating night of MMA fights showcased the prowess of female fighters, while the other took center stage with male warriors. This MMA event happened last Friday evening, June 2nd, 2023. A Display of Skill, Power, and Tenacity Amélie Lévesque vs Pamala De'Leon The anticipation and excitement were palpable as two highly skilled female fighters stepped into the octagon. The bout was a testament to the growing popularity of women's MMA and the exceptional talent possessed by these athletes. With lightning-fast strikes, impeccable grappling techniques, and an unwavering resolve, these women showcased the depth of their abilities. Both fighters entered the arena with determination etched on their faces, ready to prove their mettle. Throughout the match, the combatants exchanged a relentless barrage of strikes, demonstrating their technical proficiency and resilience. The crowd erupted with each impactful blow, applauding the skill and toughness displayed by these awe-inspiring women. What made this fight even more extraordinary was the mutual respect and camaraderie between the competitors. While they fiercely battled inside the octagon, their sportsmanship was evident, as they embraced after the final bell rang, showing the true essence of MMA. Lévesque’s game plan was rather basic, she said. She is a primarily Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter with a third degree brown belt. De’Leon knew this. Lévesque said De’Leon is an aggressive fighter and Lévesque took that to her advantage. She was able to land a high kick which made De’Leon rather dizzy, throughout the fights. Lévesque then says the event was organized very well by Bellicose MMA. The DJ, Security and commentary was excellent, she said. She also thanked De’Leon afterwards for the competition. This fight meant a lot to Lévesque, debuting in The Dome, in front of so many people. Main Event: Male Warriors Leave It All in the Octagon Joseph Yang vs Didac Fraga As the atmosphere reached a fever pitch, the spotlight shifted to the main event—an epic clash between two male warriors. The anticipation for this fight was off the charts, with fans eagerly awaiting the showcase of technical brilliance, sheer power, and unwavering determination that characterize elite-level MMA. Yang and Fraga, known for their dominant presence in the MMA world, stood face to face, eyeing each other with unwavering focus. The crowd erupted with a deafening roar, creating an electrifying atmosphere that sent shivers down the spines of everyone in attendance. From the moment the fight began, it was clear that these warriors were willing to push themselves to the limit. Thunderous strikes and calculated take downs reverberated throughout the arena, leaving spectators on the edge of their seats. Yang noticed the way Fraga moved in the first round and because of that he knew what to do, to beat Fraga. Yang expected more from Fraga. He said it was one of his easiest fights. Yang already said at the press conference “I’m not gonna drop a single round”. Round after round, the combatants showcased their versatility, transitioning seamlessly between various martial arts disciplines. Yang had a very good start to round one, where Fraga had to take a few hard blows. Fraga was close to coming back in the second round, until Yang hit Fraga straight in the stomach with a front kick. It was hard to breathe for Fraga, and Yang ended this main fight in a 3 - 0. Ernest Ochoa (left) vs Michael Rogov (right) ending in a 0-2 for Rogov Conclusion: A Historic Night for MMA The event featuring both female and male MMA fights marked a significant milestone in the sport's evolution.

On the 9th of November 2015, Quincey and his younger cousin Taylor Wallace robbed a gas station at gun point. The police quickly responded and the duo was arrested, Quincey was sentenced to 5 years in prison where he was recruited to the black car and spent the majority of his time working out in the yard and getting into brawls, trying to secure himself notoriety as a young Hoover crim.

    Deon DeFeo

    Deon "Cronus" De Feo Height/Weight: 6'5'' / 120kg Body reference: JJ Watt (Click) Amateur Record: 7-0-0 (Boxing) Deon De Feo was born on the 12th of June 1999 at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI. His parents, Rita and Angelo De Feo where both second generation Italian-Americans, his father's brother was a well-respected mademan in the Detroit Partnership and himself was an accountant. Deon is oblivious to whether or not his father was involved with the mob, however was normalized to the mob life as a child; the chances are his father was a part of the mob. The De Feo family was a wealthy family, two generations of mobsters either dead or in jail did have it's benefits. Deon grew up financially stable and happy, in school he was on the honour roll for multiple years and graduated high school with a 4.73 GPA. By the age of 15 Deon was 6'0'' and weighed 75kg, he was quickly recruited onto his high school football team as a linebacker but as he trained with his team and in the gym he eventually transferred to tight end, this was around the same time he began boxing at his father's cousins gym in Metro Detroit. By 17 Deon was the high school star, he was 6'2'' and weighed 88kg of majority muscle, he was gaining a lot of attention from college football scouts however deep down always preferred boxing. After graduation, when it came time to pick a college, he freaked out and decided not to go to and instead try and further his boxing career, much at the disappointment of his family. He continued to fight amateur boxing and by the time he was 18.5 years old he had an amateur record of 5-0, after coming to a realization whilst watching the UFC he started attending an MMA gym as well as boxing, he started to train kickboxing, capoeira and BJJ and within two years was statistically the best in each of his individual classes. Deon moved to Los Santos and enrolled at ULSA where he majors in history, around this time he also met Richard Balistrieri who saw promise in him as a fighter and began to train him; also giving him a personal job. Today, Deon is fighting under Sweathouse and aims at being the biggest name at Bellicose. He has big plans for the future, however regardless his future is destined for success should things continue the way they have gone for him his entire life. Deon grew through naivety at a very young age, despite protection from his family he was seen as a target due to the importance of both his father and his uncle. This is a major factor in Deon's mentality, mixed with egotism and pride Deon tends to think he is the Titan he humbly named himself after; Cronus. Cronus was a fearless Greek titan, son of Uranus and Gaia the mother and father of the earth and sky. Cronus saw his vulnerabilities at a young age and so castrated his father and thus creating mankind. He claimed the universe and became king of the gods through deception and force, and when his godly children where born he ate each individual one despite Zeus, who was hidden from Cronus by Rhea, his sister and consort. Eventually, Zeus returned and defeated Cronus, claiming the seat for himself. In some mythology Cronus is considered the father of snakes, Deon sees himself as a two-faced snake just as much as he sees himself as a Titan, and worryingly draws a significant amount of mental power from his constructs.
  24. The mixed martial arts (MMA) scene in Los Santos A brief yet comprehensive view at the MMA combat sport world in Los Santos today, for those who love the sport and find it to be more than just cage fighting or a pointless bashing of one another. By KAELYN DOYLE At the moment, the way aspiring fighters rise to the top of the food chain is by joining one of the local gyms in Los Santos, that feature a sparring cage and an affiliation with a fights promotion company. Currently, there are a number of such gyms. However, there's only a few fight promotion companies around, one being Bellicose MMA. Managed by Frank Palma, Bellicose MMA is a governing body of MMA in Los Santos. Bellicose fights are held at The Rockford Dome. The local gyms that are throughout Los Santos, scout their fighters then train them in preparation for in-house events, or massive Bellicose bouts at The Rockford Dome. Bellicose MMA logo (left), The Rockford Dome (right) Bellicose itself doesn't sign any fighters, the fighters are signed by the gyms. Bellicose only acts as an MMA promotion company, based in Los Santos. Unlike other MMA companies, weight divisions don't play a huge role in organizing fights between the fighters at Bellicose. Giovanni Delvecchio, manager of Sweathouse Gym in Cypress Flats, Los Santos, who also works with Frank Palma at Bellicose, says "We don't have any official weight classes as of right now, however, the fights tend to be organized after size. It's all about the show, and for a good show, you need an evenly matched fight. The cage at Sweathouse Gym in Cypress Flats, Los Santos. The gyms scout for potential fighters and work on their training. When asked about what does it take to fight at The Rockford Dome, more specifically, "What distinguishes a possible fighting champion and an average sparring partner?" Giovanni Delvecchio responded with "You watch them. I scout, watch a lot of fights and you quickly get the sense of what is talent and what is luck. Anyone can win one random round, but consistency... and let me tell ya, professionalism... the amount of people who want to be fighters, but put no effort towards it? Nobodies, and they stay that way". Giovanni Delvecchio, manager of Sweathouse Gym in Cypress Flats, Los Santos. Also, the fighters have to stick to a training routine and a healthier lifestyle, which some may consider a restrictive lifestyle. However, fighters should be avoiding alcohol and narcotics at all costs, and Giovanni Delvecchio hates to see a talented fighter waste their potential by ruining their health. The current MMA "Champion" titleholder is Levan "Lion" Botkoveli, who defeated the 42-year-old fighter, Sala "The Maestro" Bolo on the 15th of April at The Rockford Dome, on a Fight Night Bellicose event. The fight was unpredictable up until the final round. Both fighters won a round each, however, the final third round ended with a knockout win for Levan Botkoveli. Sala Bolo (left), Levan Botkoveli (right) Leading up to a fight, fighters may cut weight in order to gain a size advantage over their opponent. Heavier fighters with more strength may choose to cut weight and fight with a lower weight class opponent, this gives them a considerable amount of strength and knockout power advantage over their opponent. However, weight cutting is usually done very quickly over the course of the few days that lead up to a fight, which may sometimes be damaging to a fighter's physical and mental health. This involves dehydrating the body as much as possible in preparation for an upcoming bout. Fighters will then rehydrate themselves back to a weight that still matches their opponent's weight class. Fighters may use saunas to dehydrate their body and shed as much water weight as possible by sweating. Other fighters may push themselves harder at the gym, correcting their previous mistakes and honing their skills, leading up to a fight. While some may even rest and recover from a previous fight. In any case, Giovanni ensures that none of his fighters spar at the gym on the day of the fights to avoid fighters from straining themselves, or just in case a serious injury happens right before the events. Speaking of events. An upcoming in-house event at Sweathouse Gym will feature fighters such as Danny "Kamikaze" Okimoto, the previous winner of the last bout at Sweathouse. Danny will be fighting on the main card against Mika. The undercard fights will feature both men and women, with the men's undercard bout being Danilo Carangelo versus Reece Turner, and the undercard women's bout being between Ziggy and Natia Noroshia. The event is set to be on Thursday, the 20th. The doors to the gym are expected to open at 7 PM, with the fights beginning shortly after that, most likely beginning with the undercards. The fights have been confirmed, but may be subjected to change if the fighters were under a special circumstance. > Comments are enabled Username: Comment:
