Combat Zone 65
Manchester, NH —The trip to Manchester is a mere 20 min ride for me, which makes it an easy choice to blog these results out to the 7 of you remaining MassMMA readers. More importantly, My beautiful wife is the CZ ring girl and ill take advantage of any opportunity to see her half naked. I’ll probably stay away from Ryan Fennelly and Calvin Kattar though as their still in their “Handsome stage” of life and I’ve gained 20 ugly pounds since my fighting days, I’m best sitting next to Mike Hammersmith or the local deisel dyke that usually attends.
Combat Zone took a little bit of a hit from its original slated card from months back as Vovka Clay was to meet Krazy Horse Bennett in the final bout for his featherweight title, But Crazy Horse bailed for another gig to pay off his Hennesey tab back home and coincidentally, Vovka also suffered a minor injury anyways and was forced to step out as well.
Keep an eye on the team suitably named after himself, Dave Spero, as he rolls out the red carpet for 5 of his fighters, taking up half of the card tonight. Spero is a former executive division world champion grappler in the beginners division.
