All I can say about Friday night’s fight card is – WOW! There was the feeling of a coliseum inside the Southeastern Fight Center, the weather was rainy and cold, but around the octagon there was a tight circle of cheering fans. The fighters on the fight card stepped into the ring and when the referee said go- they set the place on fire. Fans who have been attending these fights, come to see fighters step into the ring from week to week, begin to have certain preconceived notions about who might win the match. Fans be cautious of this! Just because a fighter is stepping into the ring for the first time or that he is rumored to be just a “bar room brawler” and the more experienced fighter is sure to win, is not always the case. That is part of excitement each Friday night, fans can always know that they are in for a night of watching the gladiators in the octagon and not knowing from week to week who will win.

The third fight of the night between Canty and Mizell was awesome.  It was a good match of equal talent.  Both endured three rounds and neither looked fazed.  Canty threw a lot of punches and Mizell took them and gave it right back. The judges made the only call possible - a Draw.
This was the second draw out of all the fights that have been held at the Southeastern Fight League. 

Fight four: Love vs. Bailey
Bailey was stepping into the octagon for the first time and I have seen Love fight several times.  Love is a very intense fighter. When he steps into the ring he is very intimidating and his fighting has proven his intimidation goes beyond how he looks as a fighter.  Love throws some hard brutal punches. Bailey didn't let Love's reputation bother him and after two minutes thirty three seconds and some blood spatter, Bailey was the winner. 

Fight Five was like watching a boxing match for the first round- Sanders vs. Stanley
These two fighters bounced around the octagon like they were equal sides of a magnet. Neither got close enough to throw a hard punch and avoided eachother waiting to counterstrike and react to their opponent.
In the second round Sanders decided to stop the dancing and hammer punched Stanley until he tapped out.

The Main event- Mellow  vs. Blalock
I watched Mellow fight Curtis a few weeks ago Nov. 13th and I was impressed with his fighting ability.        Sean Curtis vs. Miguel Mellow
 Winner: Sean Curtis. Fight went three rounds and the judges called the winner
If I had been a judge for that fight I would have had to call that fight a draw.  Both of Curtis and Mellow are talented fighters. Curtis fought last week against Dean and won his match.  And this week it was Mellow in the octagon against Blalock.  It was a good fight.  Mellow dominated and Blalock had to tap out.
