I’m not sure where or how I stumbled across this video last night, because the life of a drunkblogger is one filled with empty memories (also: shame), but I’ll be damned if it isn’t the greatest amatuer fight I have ever seen. That it takes place in one of those smaller weight classes where nothing exciting ever happens is just the icing on the cake.
What you need to know: Our fighters are Ashley Reece and Martin Chester. The event is Full Contact Contender 8. Chester is the guy that looks “more British.” He is also the promotion’s lightweight champion. Ashley is a girl’s name.
There’s something in the water at 155 pounds, you guys. Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler fight like Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Rustam Khabilov be throwing spinning shit, and now this happens. Next thing you know, these crazy lightweight fuckers will be jumping off the cage and ninja-kicking other dudes in the face.
