FIGHT OF THE SEASON | Karate Combat Season 3 Awards

Announcing the Winner and Runners-Up
by Dane Curley, 2021-11-10

Season 4 is coming...

But until it does, we're recognizing our best performers & performances with several Season 3 Awards.

Fans have finished voting on our third award and we are proud to announce the results.

(Everyone who votes for any of our finalists is entered into a prize drawing to win an item of official Karate Combat merchandise signed by Bas Rutten.)

Be sure to cast your votes each week!

Runners Up

First Runner-Up

Mouley Oudoud, who took the fight on 10-days-notice, should be remembered for his toughness in Season 3's Event 6.

He took a lot to give some back with accuracy whenever Eoghan Chelmiah (who went on to become the Bantamweight champion later in the season) left him any window to get through. He landed several head-kicks, but ultimately ended up on the receiving end of more strikes than he delivered.

Oudoud took the heat and remained threatening at all times

Chelmiah won by Unanimous Decision, in one of the most entertaining fights of the year, with absolute credit to the grit of his opponent for not merely surviving, but remaining dangerous throughout.

Second Runner-Up

The one fighter who appears twice among our three Fight of the Season finalists, has already bagged the award for Male Fighter of the Season. And doesn't that just make perfect sense?

That's Vitalie Certan. You might want to go back and watch his fights.

One of many flashy high-kicks by Certan (you should see the one's that connect!)

In Event 7, he fought Daniel Viveros, and together they earned all of Bas Rutten's trademark excited-commentary.

SLAMMA-DA-SLAM!
SMACKA-DA-SMACK!

This fight had multiple slams by Viveros, and multiple knockdowns for Certan, plus flashy high-kicks and an exciting finish.

Fan's Choice!

With respect to our runners up, we can't say this result was entirely unpredictable.

This fight in our Season 3 Finale was an absolute war. (Read the Recap.)

Deivis Ferreres in Attack Mode

It's impossible to briefly summarize this battle in words, so I'll indulge you readers with some things to expect.

1. A Clobbering Left-Hook by Ferreres.

2. A Shin-to-the-Chin impact for Certan.

One of many unique kicking techniques by Vitalie Certan

3. Tongue-wagging madness. (You'll just have to watch!)

4. Both men simultaneously swinging for the fences.

5. A perfect spinning back kick.

6. A Sudden Victory Round that literally every person watching was hoping for.

It doesn't end there.

So what are you waiting for?
