We are here at the Ammo 6 event and as we arrived there was a line out the door.  Warchild and I snuck in and quickly found our seats.  Inside the seating area was filling up rather quickly which is great.  I would say this is the biggest crowd Ammo has had to date.  There has been a few fights that have been scrapped.  The first fight that was on the card has been cancelled and also the Saul Almeida and Rob Fuller fight has been cancelled.  The refs are Steve Rita and some ref's name I will learn later.  The national anthem has been played and the fights are about to begin.  Please follow along as I try my best to keep up with all the action.

FIGHT OF THE NIGHT:  Randy Francis and Kenny Champion 5 round war!
KO/TKO of the NIGHT:  Sage Phillipe and his tko win
SUB of the NIGHT: Dan Cormier and his quick d'arce.

It was a great night of fights and I will say the best Ammo show that they ever had.  They are working hard each show to improve each one and it shows.  They had fog when the fighters walked out which was a cool feature except sometimes it was still in the cage when it started but the fighters didn't seem to mind.  I also want to say that 5-6 grappling matches are the perfect amount of grappling to get the fans warmed up.  Reality Fighting had like 15 matches or so their last one and it seemed a bit much.  Yeah, it's true that people can just show up later if they aren't interested in it all but just my personal opinion.  Well, I hope you enjoyed my recap of the night and Warchild's photos that will be added into here soon.  Special thanks to Ammo's Bill Idol and Krytyne for the lovely hospitality.
