In what was considered the upset of the tournament, Robbie Paige defeated Ring of Honor competitor "Brutal" Bob Evans in the first round with a devestating cresent kick to the side of the head. Meanwhile, Michael's Amaydo defeated "Brown Sugar" Victor Jones in dominant fashion with a Top Rope Bulldog to advance to the 2nd round. Now, both competitors find themselves in their element in the 2nd round Technical FIGHTer's Showcase.
What is a Technical FIGHTer's Showcase, you ask? Its a no-pinfall matchup that can only be won by Submission, knockout or referee stoppage. In addition, leaving the ring a strictly forbidden. If a competitor leaves the ring 3 times, whether voluntarily or by force, that competitor loses the matchup.
This rule set will be a huge factor in this matchup due to the style of wrestling both competitors favor in their matches. Michael's Amaydo, a former amateur wrestler at the high school level has won many regional and state championships during his past. Robbie Paige a lifelong martial artist has also competed at the amateur level. The athletic backgrounds of both competitors favor a matchup like this.
Also a factor, will be the health of Robbie Paige's knee. Robbie Paige is just removed from a year long layoff due to an ACL surgery. After a highly competitive first round matchup, how will his knee respond to what will be another tough 2nd round matchup against Michael's Amaydo, a man who advanced from the first round in pretty dominating fashion? Who will face Tanner Reynolds in the finals of the FIGHT Championship Tournament?
