Splatterhouse - CW45
Another weekend and another great show this time it was down to Kentish Town, London for Cage Warriors 45.
I was judging this one and my good friend David Lethaby was snapping the event for Sherdog so I drove us down, stopping for a Ginsters, and got there nice and early.
First time in the venue and I can honestly say I was quietly impressed.
It reminds me of the kind of venue I would have seen a niche band at a few years back. There was a real touch of the Coheed and Cambria about the place and, as I got into position to judge, I took in the atmosphere and got ready for the fights.
There's always a link between every one of these posts and videogaming and it's the best one to describe just how much blood there was last night on the Brett Bassett vs. Brett Sizeland fight. At one point Bassett was on the bottom and the blood was literally streaming out of his head onto the canvas. I've not seen a cut that bad for a long time and I was amazed that I managed to not get any blood on me at all.
Fights were very entertaining all in all with a lot of exciting finishes and the whole show was very enjoyable to work at.
Chris Fields won walkout of the night coming in to Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy and John Phillips proved it is possible to look menacing whilst wearing knitwear.
The journey home was better than the last time I made my way home from London, although there was a tiny bit of snow as I got home which freaked me out a bit, but I got into bed at around 2am and promptly fell asleep as my head hit the pillow.
All in all another quality evening and this week I'm off to Kiev for Cage Warriors and have FIGHT UK and UCMMA Contenders after that.
Stay tuned, this is going to get busy.
