the fights started with an armbar-slam-ko, and ended with a motherfucking knockout by SPRAWL.
we figure there were something like 2500 people there, hard to tell. we had fantastic seats, perfect view. one of my training partners had a better seat - he got drafted to operate one of the cage doors.
quite a number of celebrities for a small show at the patriot center; rampage, shogun, hermes, vera, arlovski, condit... frank trigg was doing commentary and interviews (hdnet?), mario yamasaki was the head ref and juanito was one of the cut men. most of them were happy to be photographed, most of the time. i don't think shogun stopped smiling for pictures till i was shoved next to him.
i watched a local girl talk up shogun and exchange phone numbers and text messages (and show off his knee), and then ten minutes later watched him do the same thing with a younger, hotter girl.
shogun was clearly not in the same weight class as rampage.
best scene of the night was during some extended walkout music, looking down to see rampage dancing with a slightly overweight 50 year old woman, both of them clearly enjoying themselves immensely.
the first KO was from Reshad Woods. He ended that fight rather quickly. I was in the VIP section sitting a row and maybe 5 seats to the left of brandon vera. I was surprised at how shy Shogun is. Never went to the after party. Enjoyed the fights even though I had some rather ignorant men sitting around me shouting out stupid suggestions to the fighters and trying to "explain" the fights to me...you know...be cause i am a delicate flower and couldnt possibly understand what was going on in the cage. I might as well have been a stupid ring girl.
i think that the best ANYTHING of the night was the GAY GAY GAY music played in between matches. I mean...come on! "Cover Girl" by Ru Paul???

The between fight and round music was indeed gayer than gay.
