“Aung La set the tempo in the first round, peppering Vera with leg kicks in an attempt to slow down the taller man. Against the fence, Vera would connect on a series of punches and elbows, which Aung La wore well. The second frame opened up with more action on the inside, as both men connected on huge combinations from close range. Vera and Aung La took each other’s best shots. A furious exchange of thunderous strikes against the fence ensued. Aung La landed a sharp spinning back elbow to rock Vera, sending the Filipino-American to the canvas. Aung La put on the finishing touches with ground-and-pound while Vera covered up,” reads the event recap sent out by the promotion.
Also on the night Bibiano Fernandes made a successful defense of his bantamweight title by submission in the second round against former champion Kevin Belingon in their fourth encounter. As well, Rodtang Jitmuangnon retained his flyweight Muay Thai belt by split decision against Walter Goncalves. In addition, Giorgio Petrosyan came out victorious by unanimous decision against Samy Sana from their final battle of featherweight kickboxing World Grand Prix.
