Someone very well known to Fight Night fans, but someone we don’t ever see playing combat, entered a Fight Night for the first time in just under 10 years: Bob Carr! Not only did he take part, but Bob made it to the final, where he met Karsten Schölzel. Karsten placed 2nd in 2014, could he go one better this year?
Watch this fun video to see who won the tournament and 250 FNC rankings points:
Congratulations to Emil Dahl for winning the Lublin 2015 Fight Night last Friday. This is only his second tournament, but he has yet to lose a match having also taken the top spot in Israel earlier this year. He won the pictured trophy along with 250 rankings points. This result lifts him to eighth in the FNC rankings and third in the 2015 race rankings.
26 jugglers took part in tournament and 16 were selected for the knockout. As this tournament is the de facto Polish combat championship and doesn’t just represent a single city convention, it will be bumped up to a 500 point tournament for 2016.
The Nederlands Jongleer Festival 2015 Fight Night took place last Saturday, and it was the biggest tournament of the year so far, worth 750 points. 26 jugglers entered the qualifications and 16 made it to the knockout rounds.
This result lifts Luke Burrage back to second in the FNC rankings, swapping places with Iver Tronstad, NJF 2014’s winner who couldn’t return to defend his points this year. Eóin Allan rises up the rankings to fourth, his highest ever position. Simon À Campo, the only Dutch player to be seeded in the top eight, returns to the top ten.
Thanks to Maarten for hosting, Ieuan for refereeing, and everyone else who helped make the tournament happen. See all the results and details on the NJF 2015 page on FightNightCombat.com
Let’s set the scene: Jon has yet to win a Fight Night, despite playing and losing in four final matches, including at the BJC this year. Josh has never made it to an FNC final, but feels good about his chances as he beat Jon at Chocfest in January.
Now watch the video to find out how it all ends:
The winner earned himself 125 rankings points and the loser 75 for the second place finish. Josh earned enough points to climb five places to 22nd in the current rankings, while Jon remains at sixth place overall and third in the 2015 rankings race.
