A few weeks ago I met Kevin Christopher owner of the Thomasville Combat Academy.  He and a few of his students came to see the fights.  He said he was bringing his guys to fight in the SFL octagon and friday night was the night. 

Christopher put his guys through a strict training regime to prepare for the fights.  His guys proved that training pays off. Christopher has been training his guys for less than a year and one fighter, Ezra Griffin had been in training for about 6 months. Griffin didn't win his match, but his skills were evident in his fighting ablility.

Each week the fighters that step into the octagon are diverse and vary in ability and skills. I can say that each Friday night is not lacking in a surprise or two.  Friday night the first fight was fast and nasty.  The two were the biggest guys on the fight card; Alexander 233 lbs. Vs.Brenton 237 lbs. Brenton landed a brutal strike 26 seconds in the first round and the KO looked like a giant falling face down to the mat.  Blood pooled underneath his face from the meeeting of fist to face.  It happened so fast, that it was hard to believe that it just happened, from a spectator's view. 

That was not the only surprise of the evening - the Salsbury vs. Harrison fight went three rounds and electrified the crowd. Every time a fight goes three rounds fans know they have just seen a battle. 

Don't miss next Friday night!
