As usual Lou Neglia put on a great show. The card was stacked with local talent and the fights delivered. The fight I was most interested in seeing was the one between Brutal Brendan Barrett and Costantinos Phillippou. Unfortunately, Barrett suffered a cut over his eye early in the first round and the doctor stopped the fight before the round was over. Phillippou was awarded a TKO victory but it was not a satisfying conclusion. The fight was shaping up nicely before the premature stoppage. Phillippou landed a big right hand on Barrett very early in the fight, but Barrett didn't even blink and then took Costa down. Brendan had side control for a bit, tried a few subs from bottom and looked to be pretty much in control on the ground. On the feet, Coast, a former boxer, had the edge. He's a bomber, but his ground game is coming along too. How can it not with the great Matt Serra in his corner? Congrats to Costa and Team Serra Longo. Tough break for Brendan and the Rhino Fight Team. I'd love to see a rematch. Lou, make it happen! The rest of the card was excellent. My good friend John Moody covered the event with me and has full results on his site TriStateFighter.com. Also, I snagged exclusive interviews last night with Pete Drago Sell and the man himself Matt Serra. Matt is one of the funniest guys in MMA and he was cracking everybody up last night. I'll post those later.
