Combat Zone put on another spectacular show.  These fights were very well matched and the productions looked great.  The streaming experience at home was solid too.  The sound was clear and the video never froze not even once.  I believe they said they will be returning in the end of August but we will have to all wait for an official announcement.  My highlight was the back and forth battle between David Durao and Josh Medeiros which ended with a brutal knee.  I will definitely be rewatching that one when the video is released.  Let us know below which fight was your favorite.
