Liveblog: Ring of Combat 27 Part 1

MMA Journalist is cageside for Ring of Combat 27 in Atlantic City, promoter Lou Neglia's long-running pro show and the home of nearly every Northeast badass around. There are 13 bouts on the card, with a ton of well-known local veterans mixed in with new blood, and first up is a preliminary bout between Julio Rosario of Semper Fi MMA and Ryan Vacarro of BJJ Shore Academy. Round 1 sees Vaccaro manage a takedown and try to work his ground and pound, but Round 2 is all about Vaccaro hugging Rosario to death against the cage and Rosario pounding the ever-loving crap out of Vaccaro while trying to stay on his feet. Unfortunately for the Semper Fi MMA rep, he's docked a point for grabbing the fence - which turns what would normally be a draw into a decision win for Vaccaro.
