saturday the 1st a bunch of my teammates (including myself) all were scheduled to fight. we all cut and made weight fairly easily. got to the event, got checked out. all the standard pre fight stuff. and from there on the night just got worse. all of these bouts were amateur fights.
our first fighter(debut) came out did what he had to do made a small mistake in the second round and his opponent stood up. once he stood up he dropped back and kicked our fighter in the face while he was laying on his side. completely illegal move. in the fighter meeting they made it clear that kicking anyone while they were down was illeagal no matter where they were aiming. they DQ'd the fighter because the doc said our guy had no chance of being able to finish the fight.
second fighter comes out, completely destroys his opponent til the 3rd round ended. he won a decision. we were all very proud of his performance and suprised because it was his first fight.
3rd fighter came out. not a pro but he was fighting someone who had 6 pro fights. the guy came out and took him down our fighter switched and put up a damn good fight but about 30 seconds later got tapped by a rear naked choke.
4th fighter (also first fight) came out and didn't disappoint. but ultimately lost a 30-27 decision. but was pretty beat up afterwards.
5th fighter(also debut) came out and tapped his opponent with a guillotine within the 1st minute. after they called the match, the other guys corner got in the ring and tried to start a fight with our entire team. (we were all ringside) and after the entire night of fights apparently they started a fight with a few fans of ours in the parking lot.
and I was set to fight dead last on the card. it was a welterweight fight. I weighed in at 166lbs. my opponent weighed in at a chunky 210lbs!!!!
my coach wouldn't let me fight. and we tried all night to find anyone within 10 pounds of that to fight me but no one would step up.
this was the worst fight night I've ever been associated with. shady fights. and my coach already told all of us we will never fight for this promoter again. it was a terrible experience for most of our fighters. I didn't like the experience that our guys had for their first fight.
