    Haven’t been at a show as a fan in awhile (always working)….. man, I’m glad I was a fan at this one.

    Great show. Lotsa passion in the presentation. It FELT like a show put on by fight fans, for fight fans.

    Great young fighters. Congrats to all. You guys were inspiring tonight.

    LOVE the ring announcer. Kid added lotsa pizzaz. Nice find.

    GREAT crowd. All seemed new to MMA, but this show made them all MMA fans for good.

    Man. The Score show felt great last week (I worked there, I can’t be impartial, but it felt sweet) and then THIS great show really make me feel so much more confident about MMA in Ontario.

    Man. These guys got it right!

    Told you guys Cruickshank was a beast! First round KO in impressive fashion just as I thought! I agree with Blayde I would rather see him vs. Horodecki than Cardinal.

  12. Tellitlikeitis says:

    I think it’s a bad idea when these guys try and make a living off of fighting full time and take fights whenever they can. Cardinal took his last few fights month to month. I think it takes away from a proper training camp, the kind you need to properly prepare for your opponent (bring in similar sparring partners, watch video, work weaknesses). And now by losing to Cruickshank, he lessens his value as a WRECK champion. That’s why Pavelich freaks out when fighters go out and fight for other organizations and lose.

    Cruickshank is a contender here in the U.S. and is showing a lot of promise so far in his professional career as he just turned pro in 2008. He’s exciting to watch, and adopts fight styles not often seen or utilized by fighters anymore. If you’ve ever met the guy like I had the chance to briefly, he’s a nice guy and I look forward to seeing more of his energy.

    Cardinal and Day looked terrible.

    Day should be the one retiring, not Kalib Starnes.

  15. Big Jake says:

    Day’s biggest fight is a mental one. He has all the skills to win in the cage and has proven himself there time and time again. He’s got to get over whatever is holding him back…and I personally think it’s all in his head.

    Just like good ol’ Uncle Jake says: If you’re right in the head…you’ll bring home the bread.
