India Mixed Martial Arts

The website mid-day.com is reporting that the organizer of a mixed martial arts event has been arrested and 40-50 other people are being charged with ignoring Covid-19 safety regulations in connection with an MMA show held in Bhiwandi, India, Saturday. Authorities said the crowd of more than 100 people were not wearing masks or following social distancing protocols.

The organizer of the event, Salman Momin, said he had invited only 25-30 people to attend the event, which was live-streamed on Youtube. But when nearby online viewers saw the fights taking place, they flocked to the scene and forced their way inside to watch in person.

Host country Japan continued to run roughshod over judo at the Olympics Thursday winning both golds on day 6 of competition in Tokyo. Shori Hamada's match in the women's 78 kg division was over almost before it began as her French opponent, Madeleine Malonga, missed on an inside trip attempt just 10 seconds into the contest allowing the ground specialist, Hamada, to take it to the mat. Hamada worked her way free of Malonga's legs and into a hold down position for an easy pin to take the gold medal.

In the men's 100 kg category, Japan's Aaron Wolf waited until overtime against South Korea's Cho Gu-ham before going for his own ouchi gari, inside trip. Unlike Malonga though, Wolf, whose father is American and mother Japanese, landed his perfectly putting Cho flat on his back for an ippon, full point, to take the finals. Japan has now tied their own record for most gold medals (8) in a single Olympic judo competition with three events still to go.
