Back from a night commentating again for True Promotions' second MMA event, True 2. There were 10 fights after 1 was scrapped due to COVID. 5 TKOs, 3 submissions and 2 decisions. It was a fun night of well-matched fights.
Last night was another Knockout Fight League amateur MMA show in Hawaiian Gardens, CA. This time we had Fred Adams in his first fight in over 3 years along with Subfighter alumni JJ Ambrose protégé - Johnny Arreola - making his debut.
First up was Johnny. Johnny is from California, but is in the Navy and is stationed on Guam. He trains at Steel Athletics with JJ Ambrose and scheduled a visit home along with a fight while he was back. Since his team in on Guam, Gabe Green & myself took on cornering duties.
Another Knockout Fight League amateur MMA show in the books.
This time we had 2 fighters on the card looking to get their first wins.
First up was Salvador Gonzalez. Sal lost a decision in his MMA debut but was better prepared for what to expect this time around. He spent all 3 rounds ground & pounding his opponent after early takedowns to win a unanimous decision. He even showed a little standup in the fight after he established the fear of the takedown!
Last night was the True Promotions inaugural amateur MMA event, True 1 at The Grand Theater in Anaheim, California. I was on commentary for the sold out show with John Arredondo from Gym Crashers as well as Alexandra Wendling.
We were supposed to have RJ Draper fighting on the card, but his opponent pulled out of the fight late and we couldn't find a replacement. I was going to be pulling a Paul Felder and hopping off of commentary to corner that fight, but since the fight was scrapped it was just commentary duty all night for me.
Yesterday was Valley Fight Series 6 in Reedley, California.
We had RJ Draper fighting in his 2nd amateur fight. It was a long night. RJ was fight #13 on the card and there were 4 grappling matches and 2 intermissions ahead of his fight as well. When it came fight time, RJ had a solid performance.
