BONE MMA I 8/30/2013 Review

We are at Bone MMA event and it is in a great location.  It is in a nice gym with upper seats which make for a sweet view of the fights.  The only two people here selling shirts are Suckerpunch Athletics and Team Link.  The sound system sounds awesome and the dj is warming up the crowd with some mainstream hits.  Old School, Kevin the Ref, John English, Derek Constable and Zack Lynch made it up to the fights.  Beer and water is being sold which always a bonus for a mma fan!  There was a last minute scratch so there are only 6 fights scheduled.  I will do my best to give a live play bu play as I am on limited laptop battery and cell service.  Our host is the man John Vena who always does a great job.  The blond woman who did the national anthem did a fantastic job.  The place is filling up and I would estimate the crowd to be around 300-400.

Fight of the Night: Man there are two solid choices but the comeback victory from Phil Parrish and the blood from Taylor Trahan won me over for fight of the night.
Submission of the Night:  Chris Perrault Arm Triangle
KO/TKO of the Night:  Jabril Patterson with the 10 second stoppage by way of the fist!
Blunder of the Night:  Last minute scratch led to only 6 fights for the evening.

It was a great night of fights presented by Bone MMA.  Was Bone MMA perfect no.  They lost a few fights due to last minute scratches and in the end they only had 6 fights.  They gave out trophies to the winners and I really liked the venue and the sound system. Every fight(except one) was a great one in my opinion and there was some solid match making done here.  The Gaffney/Harold fight lived up to the hype and was one of the top fights.  Then the last fight which many of the fans left missed was even better.  Trahan was the hometown favorite and was up two rounds going into the 3rd.  Then he gets a bad cut and Phil finishes him off with some ground and pound for the tko stoppage.  I spoke with Bone MMA and they told me that they learned a ton in their first show and they will come back stronger than ever.  I hope you all enjoy the photos and the review as much as we had fun sharing them with you all.  We will be posting all of our photos onto our fanpage so please click the Facebook button below to become a fan.  Thank you all and have a great labor day weekend!  Last thing I would like to thank Bone MMA for allowing us to cover the show.
