    :rofl:

    Pretty good show. All but the last three fights ended up being amateur fights but still very exciting. All but one were sub or TKO. The last three fights were all excellent fights, with the main event being a complete slug fest and both fighters taunting eachother back and forth in the 3rd round.

    highlight of the night was josh barnett and eric paulson being there and introduced. frank trigg was also there promoting his radio show as well as guys that train at no limits like andy wang, robert emmerson and gabe rudiger.

    pics coming up

    what did you think about the split decision at the end. and per sherdog Camacho's win was changed to a majority draw after some confusion on the judges score cards. i thought he took all three rounds and that loss point in the 2nd wasn't gonna be a problem but looks like it cost him the win.

    im really bad at judging pure standup fights.. so no comment

    too bad camacho's was changed to a draw.. but hes a retard for not finishing the fight. that guy was about to black out from exhaustion.. and the lost point was kinda harsh.. the ref couldve given him one warning at least

    i think the ref warned him after he kneed him in the corner while he was down on his knee. at that one pont he was on one knee and not defending himself one good punch would have finished the fight. i was shocked he let it go to the judges.

    i thought Fujimaya pushed teh action the last two rounds and definitely landed more shots and really worked the body shots well. it was a close fight and i will leave it at that.

    did one of the judge's names rhyme with "Pecil Ceoples" by chance?
