Warchild and I quickly found our spots at Club Aura.  NEF is using their brand new cage which is a little smaller than their other cage they usually use due to the stage being smaller.  The crowd is starting to fill in now and the fights are about to start.  The first match of the night is grappling followed by the rest of the night with mixed martial arts action.  Peter Cyzmbor will be the host of the night and the refs are John English and Kevin MacDonald.  This venue is really nice with a huge screen for everyone to watch the action and the sound system is top notch.  Please follow along as I try my best to keep up with all the carnage in the cage.
