Asylum Fight League's tagline is "These fights are insane" and for some crazy reason each and every show lives up to that billing. Last Saturday night's Asylum Fight League 38 event was no exception as all 10 fights had the crown out of its mind with excitement. The evening was topped off by a great main event that crowned a new Asylum 154 pound champion.
The Asylum shows take place at the Golden Nugget Casino Hotel. This venue is really nice, and the acoustics are outstanding. It's one of my favorite places to ring announce because my booming voice can be heard clearly in all corners of the place. Plus, it's just a beautiful site to hold fights.
Perhaps that's why the fighters dig so deep in their fights, and leave everything in the cage. Promoter Carl Mascarenhas always puts on competitive fights and is an excellent matchmaker. Saturday's card had it all, with knockouts, subs and close decisions ruling the day.
In the main event, Mike Reilly out of Devideius Taurousvicous's camp, blew out very tough Julio Gaspar to win the crown. Mike's performance was, well, insane, and the crowd was on its feet from the opening bell. Reilly is definitely a guy to keep your eye on, and I can't wait until he defends his belt. I'm already looking forward to the next Asylum.
