Friday 5ive: The 5 Fastest Finishes of Dominic “The Hondey Badger” Mazzotta

DominicMazzottaBy: Albert Cameron – It was inevitable: we now live in a Post-Chris Dempsey & Mark Cherico Pittsburgh MMA circuit. To the big credit of the Pittsburgh promoters, they’ve been cultivating the main eventers of tomorrow (or today, as perspective would allow) and we haven’t been left with fights that aren’t relevant, with fights thrown together because there has to be main event.

If a fight card wasn’t coming together in a way that was conducive to everyone getting the best possible outcome, they will pull the card without thinking twice.
