Here's Another Old Underground Fight For You


Here's an old underground fight (circa 2009) for you. Martial Arts Madness was the name of the promotion, so there are some things to note:
  • This was their third event. Also, their last.
  • It took place at a boxing gym two blocks from my home.
  • Competitors had to wear headgear, rules were loose, and the promoter was shady as hell. So shady, in fact, that the promoter's dad tried to affect the outcomes of fights by halting them when an unpopular fighter was winning.
  • This event occurred after the promoter had fought on his own show and paid his opponent to take a dive.
