This is why fighters need tats of their own name
So, I'm at a New Breed Fighters event to report. I was about an hour early for press check in (traffic was a lot lighter than I thought) and I was standing in line right behind Vitor Shaolin Ribiero. He was wearing a Vitor Shaolin shirt with his face on it. The receptionist asked who he was. She did not understand why I laughed.

Their opening is also officially the silliest I've ever seen. It involves clips from Blood Sport, Drunken Master, and 300.
Other funny stories I would not report includes me suddenly getting embarassed while talking to a ring girl because I remembered what porn I saw her in. I can't think of a regional show I've been too with more random strangeness unrelated to the fights.

Good night so far about half way through. But these elaborate and kind of pointless t-shirt giveaways, trivia questions, and other crap inbetween fights is practically putting me to sleep in the down time, if you can't tell from the fact that I've been posting on BS inbetween fights. This is just a strange production. Good fights but strange.
Example, the aforementioned ring girl is actually a walk out girl. In that, instead of the fighter escort being casino security, it's a porn rag model. Not sure I get it.
As a side note, I sound like I'm being mean to said lady (Elizabeth Snow for those checking google for her career accomplishments). But, she's been nothing but friendly and civil. Something I'm so unused to from the models under fight promotion's employ that I'm not sure how to react.

Man, I would love right promotions down here to put things between the fight, even just for five or ten minutes so you can take a piss and not worry about missing what could be a fast fight.
