KOTC: Hardcore Results/Recap and Photos

KOTC: Hardcore went down April 26th (this post got lost in the shuffle, sorry, hope you got to see the fight videos before we took them down) at he San Manuel Casino. This was the first KOTC event we have attended as press, we’ve seen a few as fans a few years ago. I gotta say, they have gotten substantially better in their organization and execution. Not that it was bad before, but this is on a whole other level. The event was streamlined, no wasted time, not technical glitches, it started on time and ran smoothly. The seating was organized well, with no bad view as far as I could tell, large Monitors placed all over the area, and I mean all over, for all the fans to see and exciting fights. Check out the photos below and look forward to more KOTC coverage from us.
