This past Fridays fight between Andy Ogle and Mike Rio was the final fight of the first first round. Andy Ogle executed a great game plan and was able to get a victory and advance to the Quarter Finals. Look for a full episode recap here tomorrow. During the episode Dana White sat down with Faber and Cruz and got their input before selecting the quarter final match ups. There’s going to be two quarter final fights this Friday and two fights the following Friday. You can all put your panic attack on hold for a week as Al won’t be fighting until the following Friday, May 18th. People have all ready been asking me about McCanns, and as always well have a big viewing party and open bar there the night of Al’s fight. More details to come on that.
This Friday’s match ups are very interesting. It’s going to be Joe Proctor against James Vick, and Mike Chiesa against Justin Lawrence. Both fights have the potential to be very exciting. That leaves Team Cruz’s Vinc Pichel, Andy Ogle, or Chris Saunders for Al to fight the following week. Unfortunately he could fight someone on his own team. This is where the tournament really becomes more about the individual and not the team. Check back for more information on the quarter finals throughout the week, and as always thank you for reading.
