Liveblog: Brick City FC Part 1
MMA Journalist is here at Essex County College in Newark, cageside for the debut of the Brick City Fighting Championship. There are nine bouts scheduled, and if there's a theme to the match-ups, it's best described as "Team Gracie versus Gold Team" (Gold Team is Jorge "Macaco" Patino's boys). For those unfamiliar with the results of New Jersey's 2010 census, Newark has a huge Brazilian population, so the audience reaction for tonight's fights should be about as passionate as it was for Rio de Janeiro's 1997 Pentagon Combat (hopefully, with less stabbings).
