Israeli Fighting Championships Results

The Israeli Fighting Championships' inaugural event was a huge success. Jeff Monson, Frank Trigg, Thierry Sokoudjou, Daniel Gracie, and Ricco Rodriguez all earned wins last night in Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, Shonie Carter and Hermes Franca both dropped unanimous decisions to their respective opponents. Following the loss, Carter announced his retirement.  Mr. International's many extravagant contributions to mixed martial arts, both in the cage and out, will always be remembered: the trademark spinning back fist, colorful pimp suits, hip hop-like rhymed responses to interview questions, and entourages of random fitness chicks. Mr. Carter, you will be missed (check for video below)!!!

Anyway, your IFC results as promised:
