APRIL FOOLS DAY CAME 19 DAYS LATE. FOR KICKIN IT THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A SMALL EVENT BEING THAT THIS CARD WAS PUT TOGETHER LAST MINUTE (2 1/2 WEEKS). THE PLACE WAS PACKED AND SO WAS THE POSITIVE ENERGY FROM THE CROWD. OUT OF 36 FIGHTERS, THERE WERE 22 OF THEM THAT MADE THEIR KICKIN IT DEBUT LAST NIGHT. A LOT OF THE FIGHTS THAT WERE STOPPED BY THE REFEREE (TIMMY VENDETTA) WERE DUE TO THE FIGHTER BEING TOTALLY EXHAUSTED TO WHERE SOME FIGHTERS SWUNG, MISSED, FELL AND HAD A HARD TIME GETTING UP. THIS EVENT HAD LOADS OF LAUGHS AS WELL AS ITS SHARE OF BUMPS AND BRUISES.

ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE FIGHTS LAST NIGHT WAS THE FIGHT AGAINST DAVID LUI VS VAN RINGWEST. FIRST TIME FIGHTER VAN FOUGHT HMC'S DAVID IN A WINNERS NEVER QUIT AND QUITTERS NEVER WIN MATCH. VAN BROUGHT MAJOR GAME IN THE FIRST ROUND. BUT WHEN THE FIRST ROUND WAS OVER DAVID SHOWED THE CROWD THAT CONDITION IS KEY. DAVID CREATED HIS OWN TATTOO SHOP AND VAN WAS HIS FIRST CUSTOMER WHILE DAVID SCORED AT WILL AGAINST A TIRED VAN RINGWEST. VAN'S LEGS WERE LIKE NOODLE IN THE THIRD ROUND BUT HE FINISHED THE FIGHT LIKE A TRUE WARRIOR AND GOT EVERYONE'S RESPECT. EVERY WARRIOR KNOWS THAT SHAME HIDES IN THE HEART. IF YOU AINT GOT NO HEART THAN ITS A SHAME TO CALL YOURSELF A WARRIOR. DAS RIGHT

RICKY MURRILLO AND HIAPO KOLO'S FIGHT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO SOME HEALTH PROBLEMS. SO THE ORIGINAL SEMI MAIN EVENT (SAGE YOSHIDA AND ROBBIE OSTOVICH) WERE MOVED UP TO THE MAIN. THIS 13 AND 14 YEARS OLD FIGHTERS SHOWED EVERYONE WHY THEY ARE CHAMPIONS. THESE YOUNGSTERS WERE SERVING A WHOLE LOT OF KNUCKLE SANDWICHES BUT NEITHER ONE MUST HAVE BEEN HUNGRY BECAUSE BOTH OF THEM AVOIDED A LOT OF IT. ROBBIE HAD HIS SHARE OF MAKING SAGE BACK UP BUT HE ALSO HAD HIS SHARE OF BODY SHOTS FROM YOSHIDA. SAGE HAD ROBBIE ON THE ROPES MOST OF THE TIME WHICH WON HIM THE FIGHT.

 

THE FIGHT OF THE NIGHT TROPHIES WENT TO THE SEMI MAIN EVENT FIGHTERS STEVE LIM AND MATT KANHELE. THEY FOUGHT LIKE SPARTANS FROM THAT MOVIE 300. NEITHER ONE OF THEM MADE AN EFFORT TO BACK DOWN BEFORE THE FIGHT EVEN STARTED WITH STEVE COMING IN AT 149# AND MATT AT 164# WEIGH IN NIGHT. MATT CAME IN WAY OVER THE 150 # THAT WAS AGREED ON BUT STEVE WASNT GOING TO LET HIM OFF THAT EASY. STEVE TOOK MATT'S LEG THROUGH RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGEY BY BANGING IT EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. HIS LEGS DIDNT LOOK THE SAME BY THE END OF THE NIGHT. BUT IN THE END MATT WON THE FIGHT WITH HIS SOLID COMBOS AND HIGH KICKS. MUCH PROPS FOR A JOB WELL DONE.

 

KICKIN IT WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THE FANS AND SUPPORTERS THAT MADE THIS LAST MINUTE EVENT POSSIBLE. ALSO MUCH MAHALO TO THE FILCOM CENTER FOR SLIDING KICKIN IT THAT LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION WHICH MADE ALL OF THIS POSSIBLE. SEE YOU GUYS AT THE NEXT KICKIN IT ON MAY 19.
