BadDog Fights:
Casey Lamb- 205-265 div.
Fought Tau Falualo from Hawaii, Casey won the fight in outstanding fashion, in 51 sec. of the first round.
Tau was taken down with a single leg takedown, had his guard passed to knee on belly, took a ton of damage from that position. Got mounted and received devastating strikes to the face at which point the ref. stopped the fight.
We will post the fight soon.

Huge congrats to everyone that participated in this weekends events!!, you all made us extremely proud!!
Thanks to Saulo, Xande, and Chris for hosting and making us feel welcome and part of the SRJJA family.
