Luigi Fioravanti Back In The Win Column

MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

Luigi Fioravanti (18-8) entered the M-1 Selection 2010 ring on Saturday night in dire need of a victory. Luigi came into the bout just 2-3 in his previous five outings, and was currently employing the miseries of a two fight losing streak. All that changed however in less then three minutes. Fioravanti grounded his opponent and dealt a wealth of punishment to (8-4) Woody Weatherby, who succumbed to strikes at 2:51 of the very first frame.
