It was pure dominance from the get-go. Fist Gym’s Patrick Dos Santos was relentless from start to finish against Mark Gatmaitan as he won via submission in Round 1 MMA of their middleweight bout at the sixth installment of B.E.T.S, a joint project between Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC), PAGCOR and Live Artists Production. The event was held at Casino Filipino Manila on June 15, 2018.
Dos Santos started off with a push kick that landed smack on Gatmaitan’s body. This set the tempo as Dos Santos threw a couple of punches before taking Gatmaitan down to the canvass. From there, it was a barrage of ground control positions coupled with ground and pound. This paved way for an opportunity for a submission attempt which Dos Santos capitalized. Referee Florence Eusebio stopped the fight after Gatmaitan tapped due to a shoulder lock (Americana) submission.
With this win, Dos Santos may be lined up for a fight or two for the URCC Middleweight Title.
