Former UFC fighters Yves Edwards and Roan Carneiro helped propel the American Top Team (ATT) camp to victory at the Shine Fights event from the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Fla., on Sept. 4.
Shine 2: "American Top Team vs. The World" featured an assortment of members competing out of the well known Florida-based mixed martial arts camp taking on fighters from around the world.
For those keeping score, the boys down at ATT made it a clean sweep at the pay-per-view event, taking home the "W" in all four of the fights they represented.
Edwards, ATT's "Master of Thug-jitsu," managed to rebound from a two-fight losing skid to choke out "Madtown Throwdown" veteran James Warfield with a sneaky triangle choke late in the second frame.
Also breaking out of an 0-2 slump was the Brazilian welterweight Carneiro, who outclassed Chute Boxe product Jorge "Macaco" Patino en route to a unanimous decision victory. Like Edwards, it was the first fight for "Jucao" in nearly a year.
With any luck, we won't have to wait another twelve months to see these two talented veterans get their fight on.
Here are the Shine 2 official results:
Roan Carneiro defeated Jorge Patino via unanimous decision
Yves Edwards defeated James Warfield via submission (triangle choke) 4:48-R2
