AMMO Fight League 5

Warchild and I made our nice short trip to Springfield Mass for Ammo 5.  The event is a mixed event of professional and amateur mma fights with 4 grappling matches at the beginning.  After talking to some people at the cage we found our spot at the media table.  The refs for the night are Tom and Brian Minor.  Shout out to Krystyne Curtis and Bill Idol for the lovely hospitality.  Just got word the Jon Manley fight got scrapped due to his opponent twisting his ankle pre fight warm up.  OK, the national anthem has been sung so let's have the fights begin.
