My cable provider bailed on me too!! - Everything was fine right until the show aired - then I lose Spike.... wtf is that all about - stupid NYU cable network trying to censor the violence or some dumb **** probably. I can't even open my fucking window in the summatime because they're trying to keep depressed college idiots from sui-ing all over the sidewalk. Rediculous goddamnned hand-holding authority types......
Anyway - fights were phenomenal, good for them.-Jordan

Kendall won by decision, but they gave Ed a contract to because it was such a good fight. Bispine beat Blue Rooster by TKO in the 2nd round.

These fights were phenomenal. Kendall rocked. Bisbane was amazing also.
The biggest winner was Tito Ortiz, he can truly mold and shape good fighters. Is it me or was Tank Abbot right when he called Shamrock - Sham - Rock (Not that he wouldn't take me out in a heart beat, but I am just a slacker).

Shamrock's a business man. He just moonlights as a fighter.
Oh, theraydiater. I'm just screwing with you.
