Time for the pictures from my Cage Force experience. I was very honest (maybe too honest) when I came home from the event, but Cage Force always puts on a great show. This time, I thought it was not as good. Still, over all a very good production and I enjoyed myself.

This is from the opening fight, Ando and Miyazaki fought to a draw in a good fight.

Tekaji was a guy I had not heard of before, but this was an exciting fight. I wonder if he had a weight advantage, but Tekaji was fun to watch with his arrogant style, no guard needed.

That was the end of the opening fights and it was time for the ring-girls to take the stage.

Mako dragon reminds me of someone the way he is holding his guard here... Ikkei won the fight, and I would again question if they were the same weight... But exciting non the less.

Son vs. Hori. Unfortunately, Hori suffered a cut on his eyelid early in this one, resulting in a doctor stoppage. This looked to be a very good match-up.

Is it an eye? Is it a condom? No... Its actually Tetsu Suzuki entering the ring against Katsuya Toida. Suzuki might have looked stupid walking in, but Toida was the one leaving the ring with egg on his face... Not event raising his guard in the fight.

***UPDATE*** Suzuki was entering as "Medama Oyaji" from a famous Anime called "GeGeGe no Kintaro". Unfortunately, I dont watch much anime, so I missed that. You can read more about "GeGeGe no Kintaro" here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeGeGe_no_Kitaro

Fight ended in a huge KO to Mizugaki, Fujiwara did not know what happened and had to be restrained as he was ready to fight on. Mizugaki was already posing for the photographers...

The main event. Carvalho vs. Hoshino. Carvalho would probably have liked this fight standing, unfortunately, Hoshino was able to take him down and was too strong on top. Hoshino got the decision.

Cage Force is always good that way! Still struggling to get good shots of the fights there though :) Seems to work better with the girls...

Tetsu was "medama oyaji", or "eye-ball father" from the old anime "Ge ge ge no Kitaro." ^_^

Thanks Roxanne! Had a feeling I missed the true meaning of what he was doing... :)
