Sam Ari Tan provided the crowd and fighters with bandages, food and drinks throughout the event!

[SIG] JC was up to his usual mischievous antics! The Arena is a great spot for begging when there is a big crowd! Whilst the fights were under way and the crowd was distracted [SIG] JC saw a golden opportunity to lighten the load of our fellow spectators and their worldly possessions! After being caught [SIG] JC was declined entrance back into the Arena gates!

The chaos continued when suddenly everyone started coughing and throwing up all over the Arena! We are not sure who caused the mess but the plague was running wild amongst the fighters and spectators! The Arena was a mess, we suspect it was Mexican Fury who was the culprit! All of this happened even before the fighting had even started it was utter chaos in the Arena!
