This Week in Kansas City MMA, Invictus FC Results and Previews for True Fight Fan and Blue Corner Fight Cards This Weekend
Yesterday, I went to the hospital to visit my old teammate, friend, and someone I completely admire in Jacob Combs. He has been there since his fight on Saturday night. Why? Check this video out. (Special thx to KC Neutral Corner and videographer Bethany Greycat for this video).
In the first 15 seconds he takes a devastating kick to the jaw while shooting a double leg and it breaks. After a huge slam, and ground and pound, dominating his opponent positionally, his corner, Derek Bohi, makes a tough call to stop this fight and end Jacob's undefeated streak. This is a little disappointing considering Jacob won the round, and this was such a fun fight to watch, but a selfless call by his cornermen!!
However, this goes to show you that you may win a round, but not the fight; props to his opponent for his vicious hands and legs! Adam D'Angelo is no doubt, the best striker in the amateur HW class around the area.
Now, what you may not know from the video is the whole round, Jacob was choking down blood barely able to breath from the injury inside of his mouth. He has a pretty bad cut too, but "that was no big deal", he says. Yesterday, he had reconstructive surgery yesterday on his jaw with plates and screws. What is the 1st thing he asked the doctor? "Can I fight again?"
Who does this? A true fighter does!! This is why I love this sport. Some will understand, some won't. It's really that simple. Thx to Jacob and Adam for literally the best HW match-up 1st round of action I think I have ever seen.
