Liveblog: ROC Amateurs Part 1
MMA Journalist is here in lovely Edison, New Jersey, for the Ring of Combat amateur MMA show, where the stars of tomorrow kill each other today. There are 15 fights on tap, and in the main event TSMMA's Mike Fischetti is taking on Team Serra/Longo's Eddie Lenoci for the light-heavyweight belt. You know, years ago if you said someone was Team Tiger Schulman you could usually assume they'd be great at throwing strikes and maybe decent on the ground, and if you said someone was from Serra/Longo you'd think they were either fantastic on the ground and okay on the feet or fantastic on the feet and okay on the ground. Nowadays, however, these guys are ridiculously dangerous no matter where the fight goes. What's my point? I don't know. Maybe that things have evolved so much thanks to these amateur leagues. Or something. Shut up.
