It's always nice to have a supportive contingent in the audience tho' truth be that once in the ring everything will be blocked out except for the other person in fighting distance... As he said, nothing left to think or worry about except giving it his best shot.

Congratulations to Rico Disciullo for winning the AFO bantamweight title. He won with a first round KO of kin, making it an amazing four first round KO's in four bouts. Rico has serious dynamite his hands and has blown up/away every opponent faced so far.

Kin is obviously disappointed, experiencing not only his first mma loss but a knockout as well. He trained/conditioned rigorously with the intent of winning through an inside war of attrition, knowing Rico had more reach and firepower in his punches. But he experienced intimately one of the "truths" of fighting, it doesn't always go the way one plans.

Will post a video link when one becomes available.
