I was cage side at Rogue fights this past weekend at the Win River Casino and hotel in Redding, Ca. I lost a few dollars at the tables before the fights but I figure that is part of the price you pay for a good time at a fight in a casino. The fights did not disappoint with 9 out of the 10 matches ending early. with one KO, 4 TKO’s 4 submissions and only one decision the fights were definitely action packed. The most memorable moment being Deluna’s Victory via triangle choke while wearing hot pink zebra striped spandex shorts. The event overall was well run and went off without a hitch, though some of the fighters weights were pretty mismatched in a couple fights from anywhere between a 30 and 50 pound difference at weigh ins, though that is part of the game when you are trying to make it as an amateur, you are hungry and willing to fight anyone.
