Fight Time 36 @ WMA

Ft. Lauderdale, FL: It was a busy night at the War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale on Friday, as Fight Time Promotions put on yet another 10-fight professional mixed martial arts event. After what was an extremely slow start, followed by several hiccups (i.e. the power went out during one of the fights and it took at least 6-7 mins to turn them back on), the event began to pick up in the later fights. Here are some round-by-round notes taken during the fights:

Fight 1: Frierson v. Delgado

Round 2: Frierson begins to dominate

F takes down D & goes to work from above

Delgado doesn’t know how to defend

Fight 2: Marquez v. Taylor

Round 1: back & forth action

T dominating early
