For those of you within 2 hours of Manchester, NH, there’s something fun and unique for you to do this Saturday night. Black and Blue Entertainment of Hooksett, NH presents their second ever Cage Fight Mixed Martial Arts event, which they are calling, “Blunt Force Trauma”.
The fights are put together by Roger Woo and Barbara Woo of Team Woo, an MMA team located in Hooksett, NH. The two of them alternate teaching my Thai Kickboxing class, and spend hours training and coaching the Team Woo fighters. Roger is also half owner of the previously mentioned Black and Blue Entertainment, which is organizing the event.
This is going to be a tight show. The first show went off with much praise and success, and this time there looks to be even more, higher quality match-ups. I would say 3/4 of the fighters last time had losing records; the winner of the main event was 4-15 coming into the fight. This time we will be watching some real competitors.
The current fight card looks like this (subject to change without prior notice):
- Sam Kesseli – Team K.I. vs. Rick Corrigan – Team Kaze 150#
- Nicholas Santos – Team Fury vs. Adam BellaBianca – Dogpound 135#

I will be working as Event Staff at this event. From what I understand I will be ushering some of the fighters from pre-fight prep to the ring. Should be good times. Hopefully you can make it too! I will report on the results on Sunday.
