Asylum Fight League 44
took place last Saturday night at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City,
New Jersey. As usual, it was a crazy night of fights,and the Asylum once again lived up to its name. The show started
with a grappling match using NAGA Expert rules, and was refereed by legendary fighter and BJJ champion Vitor "Shaolin"
Ribeiro. After that match, the fans were treated to 7 MMA bouts, only one of which went to a decision. It was a night of knockouts
and submissions, and the standing room only crowd at the famed Xanadu Theater was standing as the fighters kicked, punched
and grappled their way to victory.
Asylum is one of New Jersey's longest running and most successful promotions, and its CEO, Carl Mascarenhas, does a great
job in putting on the kinds of fights that fans love to see. It's always a great pleasure to ring announce Asylum shows, and
I'm already looking forward to the next event on May 17.
This event was sponsored by Primal Kickboxing in Berlin, New Jersey, and it's a great school so be sure to check out their website.
These fights are insane!
