[Paris. 23 January 2023] HEXAGONE MMA 6: LAËTITIA BLOT VS ERNESTA KARECKAITE II took place yesterday at a packed Zenith in Paris, France.
A loud and reactive crowd demonstrated an enduring appetite for homegrown MMA since the lifting of the ban on the sport in 2020. The fight night was live broadcast internationally on DAZN.
In the headliner, Lithuanian Ernesta Kareckaite took incumbent champion Laëtitia Blot the distance to secure a split decision victory and the HEXAGONE MMA Flyweight belt.
With the co-main event cancelled as Chris Fishgold missed weight, the double comeback match between Dean Garnett and Miguel Haro moved up the card to second spot. Garnett made a definitive statement in the cage with a 20-second, 1st round KO victory, dispelling any speculation about ring rust and putting himself in the running for a HEXAGONE MMA title match next.
Romain Debienne also impressed with a 1st round KO win over Victor Verchere at 1 minute 13 seconds, while sparks flew as Nora Cornolle categorically beat Priscila de Souza with a 2nd round TKO at 2 minutes 25 seconds. Elsewhere on the card, supporters for French Youtube star Matthieu Duclos brought the house down, as he dominated Tobiasz Lewandowski to triumph by TKO.
