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.

Chandella Powell is a human being, and we all make mistakes.  She was involved in some risque photo shoots in her past, some softcore porn stuff that surfaced on the Net recently.  There was much speculation that she'd gotten fired from the UFC because of that, based on her absense from the UFC on Fuel show last week.  However, it appears that Chandella will once again grace the Octagon at UFC in Japan later this month.

On her Twitter account, Chandella apologized for her raunchy photo spread:

"When you are young, you often don't realize that your actions have consequences. I made a bad decision about ten years ago, but you learn from these moments. There is nothing I can do to change the past, and believe me, if I could, I would. That decision doesn't represent who I am today. All I can do now is put the past behind me and move forward. I am sorry to disappoint any of my fans and my family at Zuffa. I love you guys :)"

So there you have it.  Now we can all put this behind us, in a way that won't be captured on film.  Chandella also thanked her many fans for the support:

"Thank you to everyone for all of the love I have received. It is overwhelming to think about all of the supporters I have."

Now, on to more important things, like Brittney Palmer's Playboy shoot.  Ciao.

WBC Boxing champ itali Klitschko didn't strike back after challenger Dereck Chisora slapped him at the weigh ins.  Vitali said he'd take his revenge in the ring when they fight tomorrow night.  Chisora probably did the right thing by taking a swing at Vitali, because chances are he's going to be napping in the fight.

Sambo is one of the best martial arts for MMA.  It has throws, takedowns, submissions, and just about everything you need to be a well rounded fighter.  Fedor Emelianenko, arguably the greatest fighter of all time, is a Sambo stylist and the art has served him very well in his career.  Check out this video history of the art of Sambo, featuring Fedor himself.  This is good stuff!

Jon Bones Jones is known not only for skills inside the Octagon, he's also a crime fighter who subdued a mugger in New Jersey.  Now, he takes his police action one step further, by actually training to be a law enforcement officer.

In this video you can watch while Jones Jon gets attacked by a police dog, shoots a suspect, makes an arrest, and drives a police car through an obstacle course.  If you ever get pulled over by Jonny Bones, do yourself a favor and don't give him any lip!

The American Mixed Martial Arts Fight League is rapidly becoming one of Pennsylvania's biggest and best MMA promotions.  Their previous three outings showed that the promoters left fans very satisfied, as each event was bigger than the last.  Now, this Friday, February 17, the AMMAFL is back with Fight Night 4, which takes place once again at the Newtown Athletic Club, 209 Penns Trail Road, Newtwon, PA.

Promoters Jim McCann and Patrick Byrne are always looking for innovative ways to improve the Fight Night series, and this time they are offering ticket holders free food to go all with all the great action.

"On our general admission tickets, all food and beverages are included," Byrne explained.  "We'll have hot dogs, chicken fingers, nachos, pretzels and soft drinks.  Those tickets are priced at 50 dollars.  We also have youth tickets, for people 20 and under, and those go for 35 dollars, with food and beverages included. As for our VIP tickets, we're going to have an area roped off, and have servers bringing the food and beverages.  They won't even need to leave their seats."

Despite all the great food, the real meat and potatoes of the show will be the live action inside the cage.  The matchmaking at the AMMAFL is extraordinary, and each fight is very carefully thought out.  This time around, there are 9 amateur fights on the card, as well as two professional bouts.  And, for the first time ever, the AMMAFL will showcase females in the cage.

The UFC is coming back to AC!  David Weinberg of the Press of Atlantic City did a great writeup about the big return:

The Ultimate Fighting Champion-ship will return to Atlantic City this summer. Plans are being finalized for the country's most popular mixed martial arts organization to come back to the Boardwalk for the first time in seven years on Friday, June 22. The card will be televised on FX as part of the UFC's "FUEL TV" series.

The UFC and New Jersey Athletic Control Board both confirmed Wednesday that the event will be in Atlantic City, marking its first show there since UFC 53 was held at Boardwalk Hall on June 4, 2005." The UFC has reserved that date to come to Atlantic City," said state Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Lembo, who helps oversee MMA with the New Jersey
Athletic Control Board and its commissioner, Aaron Davis.

Officials from neither the UFC nor the NJACB would confirm widespread speculation within the mixed martial arts community that the June 22 card will be held at the new $2.4 billion Revel casino that's scheduled to open May 15.Revel, which is described on its website as a "6.2 million square-foot beachfront entertainment resort," will feature a state-of-the-art, 5,500-seat entertainment arena. Revel spokesperson Maureen Siman declined to comment Wednesday.The UFC also said the
fighters on the card will be announced at a later date.
