EFC10...getting better and better...

 Once again the Big Top and Carnival City resonated with the screaming of audience members as their favourite fighters stepped into the hexagon...
With the smoke machines pumping and 'inspirational' music blasting, the fighters make their way down the tunnel...
 It is at this moment, just before the event starts, that you can almost feel the excitement running through the venue...
 and the fighters get down,literally, to business...
 another one bites the dust...or should I say the mat?
I wonder what he was whispering in his opponents ear?  Any thoughts?
 our cameraman has to be able to walk backwards through the smoke and noise...
 Steven looking suitably efficient...
 and a wry smile from Nick...
 I finally found out what Steven whispers in the fighters ear...it is "Follow the camera"!
the ref makes sure that the fighters are safe at all times...
up close and VERY personal...
time to tap out...
 This fighter stopped to watch himself on the ringside TV monitor...only kidding! He was actually doing push-ups...
 this fighter had just lost but he seemed to take it in good spirit...
 "Read what is written on the canvas"!
 this particular ring-side team were very vocal...they seemed to be more animated than their fighter!
Tired? Rest your head on the shoulder of the Ref...I thing the expression on the faces of both fighters says it all...
 This supporter almost lept into the ring with excitement when 'his' fighter won...he had been screaming advice to him almost constantly throughout the fight
the current champion takes a kick to his leg...
And a new champion is crowned(belted?)!
EFC11 will take place at the Dome on the November 10...BOOK NOW!
