Good job guys. Andrew Chappelle continues to be impressive. Heads up fighter and gentleman as well!

wish i coulda made it

I would like to thank everyone for coming out last night. The crowd was great. I would like to thank all the fighters who all showed alot of hart. Gabe did a great job in doing the fight reports we had hoped to bring the results live to the forum but due to a tech problem with the internet connection at the venue we were not able to do that. Our next show is set for July 17 at Point Cadet Plaza in Biloxi MS. More info to come soon about that show. Once again I would like to thank everyone for another great Reality Combat show and special thanks to my partner Rich "No Love" Clementi for all his hard work.

 

good show guys

Jimmy where were you last night?

TTT great show....
Once again Rich and Jim do a fine job promoting an event.
Great writing Gabe....

On a sadder note... Once again Kyle bradley has let his fans down, as I asked for an autograph and was shunned. That in itself pretty much soured the rest of my night, I almost couldnt drink or have any fun on Bourbon st.

Great show. Thanks to Jim and RICH.

CONGRATS TO CHAD "THE GORILLA" JAY and JON BROWN

Obviously there was a lot of celebrities in attendance. From UFC Pioneer Pat"The Head Hunter" Smith, to the now elusive Kyle Bradly, to some (to remain unnamed) Superstar Porn Star.

 

It truly was a star studded event!!!!!!!!

Another successful show from Rich and Jim! Although I was dissappointed by some of the results, the night was full of great action from all.
