FCC 10 was highlighted by its first ever title match in the main event, between Light Heavyweights Vishal Balkawde (4-1) and Imran Khan (1-1). The former made history with a second round Armbar triumph, etching his name in the history books as the promotion’s first ever title holder.
In the co-main event, Harshad Sadgir (3-0) kept his unbeaten record in tact with a first round TKO victory over opponent Nitin Gaikwad. Gaikwad slumped to 3-3 with that set-back.
Elsewhere, there were victories for Yannik Denizart, Udit Thakur, Bala Silliveru and Mohit Singh on a card that produced no decisions, whatsoever.
Its been a long road for Full Contact Championship since its inception in 2009, but with a slow and steady pace, the promotion now finds itself as a capable product in the Asian MMA circles.
