Cage vs. Cons: LA Sports Arena Live Play-by-Play Analysis, Reaction

Todd Seyler@toddseylerContributor IMay 22, 2011

Live from the Los Angeles Sports Arena, I will be sitting cage-side providing the night's mixed martial arts action.

Cage vs. Cons is Los Angeles's largest live, professional mixed martial arts, hip-hop, and tattoo expo event. Today's activities started at 11:00 a.m. with musical performances by Too $hort, the Dogg Pound, E-40, and much more.

Hosts for tonight's event include Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Deebo from Friday, and long-time movie star, Danny Trejo. For those who are not familiar with this unique event, Cage vs. Cons features high octane professional fights that pits cops, firefighters, and former military against ex-cons in ten professional bouts.

Below the gimmicky surface, the real message of this unique promotion is a vision created by the founder Michael Lynch. Lynch wanted to provide the children of Los Angeles County the opportunity to escape the gang-riddled lifestyles of their neighborhoods.

He has utilized mixed martial arts as that avenue for escape instilling discipline, respect, and an understanding that gangs are not the only option. Follow along as I provide up-to-the minute play-by-play of tonight's fights. Enjoy the fights. Todd Seyler
