Lou Neglia's "Proving Grounds" Amateur MMA Show to Feature Some Scary Dudes
Promoter Lou Neglia's "Proving Grounds" amateur MMA show returns on January 24th, this time at Essex County College in Newark, New Jersey, and the event will feature some scary dudes from some scary camps. According to the preliminary card, Team Serra/Longo will be well-represented, as will Jorge "Macaco" Patino's Gold Team Fighters, Pitts Penn and Alex Wilkie's boys Wilkie's Warriors. Check out the flyer over at http://www.louneglia.com/upcoming_recent.shtml . Fighters to watch out for include "Big" Jim Kasyjanski and Frank Oyague, who handled their opponents like pros at the last show; Jay Somers, who looked good laying down some clobber until he was disqualified (too much clobber - it is amateur, you know); and Chris Wing, who's trained at Matt Hughes HIT Squad. MMA Journalist will be cageside to liveblog the event.
