[Keep refreshing after 7pm]

We arrived at Combat Zone after hitting a few extra minutes of traffic.  We quickly found our way through the hotel and found our seats by the cage.  Combat Zone has the cage and lights all set up and the fight fans are relaxing and getting ready for the fights to start.  Screens are around the room to guarantee no one will miss the action and for replays.  The hotel is really nice if you have never been here and there are bars and restaurants inside to enjoy before and after the fights.  Combat Zone only lost 2 fights so there are 13 fights total.  There are 5 pro fights on the card which and they should all be good ones.  John Vena is the announcer and the judges are Lars Borssen, Shawn Flanagan and Mike Cordeiro.  The refs are Alan Lau, Steve Rita and John English.  The national anthem has been sung and now Combat Zone is showing an awesome highlight reel video made by Scott Millette.  Please follow along while I do my best at keeping up with the action for you all.
