Arrived at the beautiful Log Cabin with Warchild around 1pm and quickly found my spot. The cage was all set up and the fans were piling in. GetPunched, Dominage Apparel and a table selling pocketbooks were already set up selling their merchandise. There is a young gentlemen in a kilt whom I assume is playing in the beginning or at an intermission. We have eight fights today and a grappling match featuring The Artist from this site Joe Leonard. Many fighters are in attendance, Ricardo Funch, Kym Sturdivant, Gabriel Gladiator, Leon Davis, Jeremy Ross are in attendance. The refs are Kenny Quon and John English.
