found it at livestream just poking around they have a few events a year lol
watched it all the co main fight was unreal soccer kick, head butt and a corner man full mounting the other fighter and right handing him was something never seen before and hope never again.
the ref was poor as heck too.
the only English writer on the chat box was very apologetic to me for what was going on.
