Travis Lizotte

Finally after the trials and tribulations that we ran into on the way to Rhode Island on this lovely Friday evening, the Full Contact Writer and the Full Contact Wife have arrived on press row here at Twin River Casino. Reality set in once we arrived at our seats and realized that we were assigned seats next to Jarett Kelly and his wife Kelley of, Jarett is one of my greatest friends in this MMA media game and was covering Cage Titans last Saturday in Plymouth, Mass when he received a call that changed his life. Jarett found out during the Main Event at Cage Titans that his father had passed away, Jarett not only lost his father but his best friend. I would personally like to take this time to offer my deepest most sincere condolences to my good friend Jarett, his wife Kelley and the entire family of Eric Victor Pearson who passed away January 27th 2018 at the far too young age of 67. Eric was a 40 year resident of Jamestown, RI and if his son Jarett is any reflection of the man he was; New England has lost a great individual and I would encourage all those reading this to please send positive vibes to Jarett and his family. You will be sorely missed here on press row this evening Jarett, but we will take this from here as you prepare to honor your father this weekend with his funeral services!
