Throwndown Amatuer Fights

Sean, "though guy" Whalen decided he was going to do an MMA fight the other night at Throwdown. They had amatuer fight night before the UFC fights, and Sean just literally to a lot of peoples suprise said I'm in!
Let me just mention, he has had no training, and no experience what so ever.
He literally just showed up and wanted to fight.
Crazy Irish Man! It was a full blown MMA fight, 3, 3 minute rounds inside the cage. All they wore were these little gloves, and a mouth guard.

In the Zone... He was so focused and ready. We asked if he was nervous, and of course you could tell he was, but he kept saying "I just want to get in there and do this"!

Ready to Roll! Right before they called his name.
(Enough Vaseline?!)

Let the fight begin! He was matched up with another guy he had never met. They both weighed in, and then it was fight time!!
This is right after the ref stopped the fight. Sean TKO'd the guy in 55 seconds in the first round!! It was scary, but he was so excited to do this, and of course after winning, he was on top of the world!
The Trowdown guys helping him out, and congratulating after the fight.
TKO in first round! That is the guy he fought.
The guys at the gym were really supportive of Sean. He has been working out for months at Throwdown and wont stop talking about how much he loves the new workouts, and what he is learning.
On cloud 9 after the fight.
The Guys of course were all in attendance supporting Sean. Becasue it was a last minute deal, he feels bad becasue there were a lot more people he would have wanted to invite seeing this might be the one and only time he fights. I hope..... :)
