    Congrats to Machan on another big win. we need to find a way to get in some bigger names for him to advance out of the regional shows. The last time anyone had him in trouble and forced him to be tested was with Gunn when he was being beaten for the whole fight until he sunk the awesome triangle and could barely even get up to make it to his corner. Let’s get him some fights to showcase more that heart and skill
