CES Undisputed II 2/1/2013 Review

Warchild and I arrived at CES MMA and found our spot.  The show starts around 7:30pm or so and CES has 11 pro fights.  They added Chris Dudley vs. Josh Lange during the week.  Another change is Pat Walsh's opponent couldn't make it and Eric Bedard stepped in last minute for a revenge fight.  For vendors I see BadAss Incorporated and SKS Fight Gear but no SuckerPunch Athletics.  I go inside and see the cage and there to my left is SuckerPunch Athletics!!  I feel like I was just hit with a suckerpunch!  The place is filling up. So far I have seen Mike Strazzere the greatest words with friends player, Jimmy Quinlan, Chuck O'Neil, Nick Newell, Gabe Gonzaga, Todd Chattelle, George Nassar, Dinis The Playboy Paiva, Doomsday Vaca and Dany Lauzon.  Kelly MacDonald from CrossFace Productions is the head photographer. Kevin the ref is running the show. The fights are about to begin....
