(Kasey Matthews and Jamie Driver throw down)
The American Mixed Martial Arts Fight League continues its ascent in the MMA world. On Friday night, the fans went wild when 16 fighters left everything they had in the cage. The sell out crowd was treated not only to great MMA action, but complimentary food and beverages were provided as well. The venue at the Newtown Athletic Club was top notch, with great lighting and sound. It was a pleasure ring announcing all the fights and enjoying the show.
For the first time ever, the AMMFL featured a women's MMA bout, and in my opinion it was the Fight of the Night. Kasey Matthews and Jamie Driver provided fans with a three round war, with Driver coming out on top on the scorecards. I had the fight a draw, and would love to see a rematch between these very talented and determined fighters. It was truly a fight to remember.
Another very memorable fight was Des "The Predator" Green vs. Bam Bam Jones. Jones came out and went into berserker mode against Green, even trying to fight after the end of the second round. But Green showed great composure and a high skill level by weathering the storm and taking control of the fight. Green, out of Team Bombsquad, won by unanimous decision.
All the fights were great, as the fighters gave their all. I don't have all the official times handy, but will get that info and post it in a couple of days. I can tell you that the Fight Night series is here to stay, though, and I'm already looking forward to Fight Night 5.
Promoters Jim McCann and Patrick Byrne do an outstanding job on all facets of the fight game. They know how to match make put on an event, and it shows. If you are near the Philly area, do yourselves a favor and check out a Fight Night event live.
