http://www.scoop.co.nz/multimedia/tv/2669.html "Carnage in the Cage" My friend back in NZ told me about this, he was channel surfing and stumbled across it on Sky Sports. Corny name, and I prefer the ring over the cage, but looks like a good start for a professional event in NZ. I'm not sure about the rules; knees to downed opponents were allowed for sure, and there's also a suggestion that stomps may be allowed too. Jeff Monson came down and commentated. I'm not sure if they'll get some marquee names for future fights, but if Monson is involved I wouldn't rule him out. Apparently the quality of fights was reasonably high, with some good jj on show. Kind of suprising because there aren't a lot of bjj/mma places around in NZ. The guy from the main event is the reigning strongest man in NZ and is a fucking massive dude, and probably wouldn't look out of place in a Pride freakshow match (think James Thompson except bigger). I haven't seen any video of this unfortunately and just got this second-hand from my mate But I'd love for MMA to be more mainstream or at least have local shows for me to go to when I go back home.
