Well Warchild and I had every intention of making it to Combat Zone but unfortunately my transmission line in my fiance's car had other plans we had to deal with that today.  Fortunately for all of us, Combat Zone has a stream available so we can all stream safely from the safety of our couch.  Combat Zone has a total of 17 fights on the night that include some grappling, kickboxing and mma.  The cage is set up nicely with good lighting all around and some fog.  Shoutout to my buddy Chris Kersch for always doing a good job on the lights.  John Vena is the announcer for the evening and the refs are Alan Lau, John English, Dale and Kevin MacDonald.  Please follow along with me as a I recap the night.

What an awesome night of fights!  The crowd was sold out and the fans were loud AF.  I could hear them clearly through my tv set in my living room.  The matches were just as I predicted in my teaser, they did not disappoint.  Very impressed by Walter Cotito and his team from KTA Nashua as they had a fantastic night.  Also The New England Cartel had a solid night but I will say I would have preferred them to fight some tougher opponents.  Shout out to the Combat Zone family for always doing a solid job and also to the match maker Jerome for putting together these awesome fights.  This will probably be the last Combat Zone fight of the year but make sure to keep checking our social media and website as we get you closer to the cage.
