CES 12/7/2012 Review

CES brings us 9 star studded fights packed with top ranked locals.  There was one last minute cancellation and that is the Tyler King fight.  His opponent Kevin Brooks never made it to weigh ins so once again Tyler is left without an opponent.  Keep your head up Tyler!!  The Boss, Artist and I are now here.  We went and got some grub at Johnny Rockets.  We recommend them if you love burgers and fries.  Saw SuckerPunch and SKSFightGear out there booths.   The Boss and I are seated at the media table with our buddy Grant Tremmeling who is writing for NorthEastMMA.  Many local celebs are in the house.  I saw Doomsday, Kym Sturdivant, Karyn Wesch, Sarah Payant, Mangler, Tyler King, KCP, Kody Nordby, Andre, Vinny Paz and Damien Trites! The place is starting to fill up, I estimate around 2500-3000 fight fans. Fights are about to start so follow along...

It was a great way to end the fight year of mma.  Fights were done in time to see Nick Newell become World Champion for XFC!!  We saw some great fights tonight.  The highlights of the evening were for me, Thane Stimson getting rocked and battling back and getting the decision.  I had it all tied up into the 3rd round which made it exciting.  The Lucas Cruz against Andres Jeudi lived up to the hype.  It started off slow but picked up in the 3rd round when Lucas turned up the heat and got the takedown.  I wouldn't say it was fight of the year but still exciting to watch.  Pat Walsh is looking impressive with his submission victory over a very tough Eric Bedard.  Joe Palazio and Matt Doherty had impressive pro debuts and I expect we will hear much more of them in 2013.  Chattelle bounced back with a Hulk Guilotine submission.  Luis Felix got an impressive standing guillotine over Jeremy Ross.  Lastly Chuck O'Neil and Keith Jeffrey lived up to the hype as well.  It was a great back and forth which was anyone's fight to win in the 3rd round.  Chuck in the end had an awesome 3rd round and got the nod on the decision.  Tisha Rodrigues did the interviews in the cage and I gotta say she did an awesome job! Thank you for following along and special thanks to CES for the lovely hospitality and for always supporting us!
