CES MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)

A couple weeks ago I went to  go see my friend Tateki fight at the CES MMA XXIII at Twin River Casino in Rhode Island. I saw him fight last year at a smaller facility but not at a place this large inside a casino.

In the middle of a large hall was a metal fenced stage for the fighters to fight.
There were a number of matches before him so I sketched the surrounding environment while waiting for him to show up.
The place was filled with martial arts fighters of all styles.

Then came his turn. 

The match lasted 3 rounds and at first it seemed as though his opponent was taking lead.
In the end he won by an unanimous vote! We were all excited!

Here's the 1 sketch from the fight!
Very exciting night for all of us!
