Absolute Annihilation

On Saturday, Dec 18, 2010, East Coast Combat Club brought "Absolute Annihilation" to the Prince William County Fairgrounds. Seventeen MMA fights kept the building rocking until well after midnight. The night featured three title matches, awarding belts to  Jessie Mitchell Jr, Chris Fraizer, and Rex Harris. More highlights of the night included Latoya Rykard winning the only women's match for the evening, and John Delbrugge and Micah Terrill scoring back to back knock out victories. Images from the fights can be found on MMA FIGHT PICS!
 
More than half the fighters had 0-0 records coming into the night, which resulted in a few uneven matches, but overall it was an exciting night of MMA action in the cage.  I always look forward to the lower weight classes, and Blake Huff and Sebastian Davis represented the flyweights in spectacular fashion.
