    WTH was Jeff Monson??? That is the only reason why I went. They did not mention his name. Did not mention he was not there. Did not mention that the advertised main event was not happening. I was screwed.

    Seriously, the Monson no show was bullshit. They should have mentioned it at the beginning for people who wanted their money back. A replacement fight would have satisfied me. Overall fun show. Could have done without the Storm intermission numbers. The blood stoppage was lame as hell. Everyone booed it. It would have been a good fight. Best fight was Ricky Shivers vs. Eric Smith. It was a one way beat down for four rounds and then an unexpected tap out.
