Today is the four-year anniversary of the legendary WarGods card in Fresno, CA. Bloody Elbow was not nearly as popular then as it is now. But this particular night set a record for comments in a single post, and it was the greatest night of drunken fun and bad MMA in this site's history. I wasn't even a member here, Tim Burke was simply known as Beer Monster, Nick Thomas was the fanshot King, and Subo was only banned 159 times instead of the current 403.
You had raffles, you had sexy poses, you had atrocious commentary, you had Tank Abbott, Ken Shamrock, Ross Clifton, the debut of Zoila Frausto, it was amazing! And now I present to you event highlights "as it was typed" by our own (possibly inebriated) Brent Brookhouse:
Karina Helena vs. Zoila Crusto - These names could totally be wrong...there are no graphics and these weren't advertised fights.
Kyacey Uscola Gets in the ring and explains that BJ Lacy backed out of his fight and challenges Haynes for next show for...um...a title? BOOK IT!
Tonya Evinger just actually challenged her original opponent to a sexy posedown. The crowd boos so Tonya screams at the crowd and wants to "make a fight with all those haters." This is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
David Espanosa is now out to say that his fight was ALSO canceled. That's 4 fights they've talked about being cancelled so far. Now BJ Lacy is out challenging ANYONE...even though his fight with Uscola was cancelled already for some reason. This is the worst thing I've ever seen. They're now broadcasting a raffle.
Tank Abbott vs. Mike Bourke - Here we go! YEEEEEAAAAH! Round 1 - They clinch up after Tank decides not to punch. Body punch, right hand behind the head and Bourke is out. Another right hand to the back of the head as Bourke is on the ground. Should be a DQ but I figure they give it to Tank to prevent a riot. Tank Abbott by KO, Round 1.
There's a LOT more you must read. Right now. At work. Even if you get fired.
