Gio Platon wins at BFL by 1st rnd KO: Posener’s MMA Vancouver
Gio Platon wins his second MMA bout at BFL by 1st round KO at the Vancouver Convention Center. Gio was exceptionally prepared mentally and physically. The initial moments of the fight had some exchanges and take down attempts by Casey, which were defended, and then Gio landed some good shots and finished the fight. Since the fight only lasted about 30 seconds, there is not a long play by play description for this one. 🙂
He is certainly looking forward to future challenges in MMA, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu. It was a pleasure to coach and thank you to George Kassimatis for coaching also. We also thank our awesome instructor team and training partners at Posener’s Pankration/ MMA Vancouver for their help and support; Costa Rojas, Francis Tiapis, Victor Tiapis, Franco Palines, Kevin Lam, Emilio Ditrocchio, Chris Toews, Gus Rodriquez, and more.
Besides the vaseline shot, there are not a lot of action shots. Next time. This was a great victory for Gio for his first time in the BFL cage and he is looking to make progress for the belt. OSU!
