Aleksander Emelianenko made his Canadian debut on Friday night in the main event of Hardcore Championship Fighting “Title Wave” in Calgary. And he didn’t waste any time, choking out Dan Bobish little more than one minute into the first round.
Thomas Schulte, a teammate of World Extreme Cagefighting welterweight champion Carlos Condit at F.I.T. NHB in New Mexico, handily defeated Ariel Sexton with a choke of his own and even bettered Emelianenko on the timing, securing the submission 50 seconds into the bout. The win also earned Schulte a belt of his own, The HCF World Lightweight Championship.
In the women’s bantamweight championship, Sarah Kaufman improved on her unbeaten streak, defeating Ginele Marquez by TKO for the title.
