Image may contain: 4 people, text

I arrived at Mohegan Sun Casino at 3:30 and made my way to the Hotel lobby where I set up my charging station and started to work on my on my write up for tonight's event. Upon walking into the Hotel Lobby I met Heather Hardy...This is usually a great place to be able to meet fighters before they make their way to the arena. I am currently waiting for Stephen Dominico from Dominico101 to arrive so we can continue these shenanigans. Keep updating this post through out the night in order to follow my Bellator 185 experience. I am overwhelmingly excited for this fight night and I will do my best to keep all of our fans up to date!
