Last night was another CXF show. This time at the Burbank Marriott Convention Center instead of the usual venue at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City. We had both Gabriel Green and Josh Jones fighting. Josh's fight was also a first round match in the King of Cali 8-man lightweight tournament. Another bonus on top of that was that Josh's fight in the first round was for the CXF interim lightweight championship.
So 6 days ago we had the CXF that Josh Jones' fight was cancelled due to his opponent getting injured. Well where one door closes, another one opened and Josh got in a replacement spot for a fight at the Combate Americas show in Ventura the very next Friday that had Emilio Chavez as the main event for the card.
Onto the CXF MMA show at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City after the Jiu Jitsu tournament earlier in the day. We had Gabriel Green and Marlen Magee fighting. Josh Jones was supposed to be on the card as well, but his opponent pulled out due to injury on the Tuesday before the fight.
Back home from another Knockout Fight League show at Metroflex in Long Beach, CA. This time we only had one fighter — Jesse Herrera — fighting on the card. Jesse was supposed to be fighting at lightweight (155), but his opponent weighed in TWENTY pounds overweight! Jesse still wanted to fight and since CAMO requires fighters to be within 10 pounds of eachother, Jesse had to GAIN weight to be able to fight. Besides that, one of our sister gyms — Adam Lynn's Subfighter — had Geoff Mellor fighting again as well.
