“Speedball” Mike Bailey vs Matt Riddle

AMBITION 8 First Round

03/11/2017

Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany

(reviewed 03/16/2017) These two are usually good together, but a shoot style setting adds an interesting wrinkle to things. Unsurprisingly, they start with standing strikes, a realm where Speedball excels, though Riddle is soon able to use his size advantage to repeatedly take things to the mat. A Cro Cop-esque roundhouse and sleeper look to have Riddle done for, but in the sleeper, he traps Speedball’s foot between his legs and applies a mean ankle pick, forcing the Canadian to tap out. Another great match here, one full of twists and turns.
