mcquaid: I think that was against Tom Burton wasn't it? Todd Broadway was pretty good back then. Did he stop fighting? I think he beat Johnathan Ivey with some hard palm strikes in that same show.
It was funny because you did hear a lot of noises made during the fights back then that you don't hear now - like UGGGH and OOWWWW. The sport was still pretty new and I don't think some people knew what it felt like to be hit by someone who was really trying to hurt you. I remember Dave Menne fighting and when he hit the guy the first time the guy yelled OOOWWWW real loud. I felt sorry for him.
I don't know what happened to Lance Trammell. The guy had skills and certainly the desire to hurt someone. I never heard about him after that show.
It was sad with Dave Barney. He came back from the dressing room to watch the rest of the show and was beat up really bad. He tried to stay in good spirits though. The problem was that he sat down in the first row, and I was in the second row right behind him. I had to tap him on the shoulder and say "Hey Dave, you got a towel or something, cause the back of your head is dripping blood on my shoes!"
