Warchild and I made our way to the couches in my living room to watch the Reality Fights.  I easily ordered the fights on my Apple TV through native app and within minutes we were watching the live stream.  For those wondering Warchild and I are socially distanced and 6 feet apart in the living room.  Reality Fighting has had a few grappling matches that dropped off and also the main event of the mma show is also off.  Johnny Lopez posted on his Facebook that Johnny Campbell came in 10 lbs overweight so that fight got scratched and Lopez will be grappling.  There are a total of 16 grappling matches and 9 mma fights.  The refs for the night are Jordan Riley for the grappling and Bryan Minor and John English for the mma portion.  The crowd was a little light for the grappling but once the mma started the crowd started to pour in.  Please follow along as I recap the evening.
