So I get to Yahoo! Sports and can’t find this friggen fight. You would think there would have been links all over the place. Finally it showed up a few minutes after the scheduled start time. Since I’m sitting at my computer watching this I thought I would jot some babble down.
- An ugly looking flying knee by Jorge Santiago finished the first match a few seconds in. The intro to the show and fight didn’t last as long as it did for them to put Sean Salmon on the stretcher. A whole new version of “knocked the fuck out!”
- Niko Vitale vs. Trevor Prangley. Prangley is the “South African Hammer.” How are the hammers in South Africa different than the hammer as we know it? Just curious and bored waiting for this next fight to start. Some strikes and knees make this one more exciting until they appear to slow dance and are broke up to restart twice. The round appeared like it was going to go Prangley’s way but Vitale had him looking like he was going to fall by the end of the round. For a couple guys that are supposed to be able to wrestle there is no ground game happening as they are standing up throwing fists and knees. Niko Vitale throws his mouth peice down after being stopped. The fight goes to Prangley due to a cut on Vitale’s eye around 2:46 into the second round.
- After the first two fights I have to say that Jorge Santiago has a HUGE advantage in the later fight since he expended as much energy as I did watching the fight.
- Odd…they announce the decision. It ended on a foul, so the ref gets to call the winner and he calls Prangley the winner. He will face Santiago later tonight.
Watch the fights HERE. I’m going to keep babbling in the comments below…
