Arrived at the Rockingham Park and entered the arena.  Many of fight fans are already in attendance anxiously waiting for the fights to begin.  I found my spot by the cage against fellow judge Shawn 'Flanno who is drooling over my iPhone 6 Plus.  There are 7 fights total and they are going to be really good match ups.  Two of the fights are professional battles and one of them is an amatuer title fight.  The refs tonight are Pat Allen, Kevin MacDonald and John English.  The judges are Mike Walls, Mike Cordeiro and Flanno.  The ring girls are looking great even with the purple hair!  Mark Oliveri is handling the tunes which sound great in this venue.  Lets get to the fights so please follow along.
