Bloody Elbow is the premier MMA community, and it is because every single user brings something to the table whether in the form of humerous banter or expert knowledge in a one of the martial arts. Being a huge fight fan, i believe this is my contribution to the BE community. LATE NIGHT FIGHTS as a series was created in order to highlight great classics and those fights that are often cited but rarely seen as well as the past, present and future legends of MMA in their early non UFC or non MMA bouts. - KJJ
LNF Here, I know the next installment was supposed to be the Finale of the Hunt Trilogy. Alas, i have been violently ill and havent been able to put in the effort to make something like that nice the way it should be. In its place i quickly threw together 2 videos ive been meaning to showcase in this column. First we have a HILARIOUS video, if you havent seen this fight yet then you must.
Tiki gets his lights turned off, then claims he lost by "cut". Cant make this shit up.
