This past Friday night, fans made it through the awful rainy weather and packed the Ottobar for the latest in our ongoing series of main event shows – Super Art Fight X!
Jampacked full of artfighting goodness with FOUR big time bouts, not to mention amazing musical performances by Club Scout and MC Lars (featuring Weerd Science), the show was an absolute marathon of awesome that left the audience blown away.
Miss the evening and want to know what went down? Here are your official results.
Bout #1: Kelsey “Killer” Wailes defeated Chelsea “Grose Misconduct” Grose to become the #1 Contender for the Super Art Fight Championship.
The evening started strong with two of SAF’s best clashing for a shot at the top. Each artist came prepared with their own costumes (Wailes as a Monster, Grose as Maleficent) and tackled the canvas with unabashed abandon. Neck and neck throughout the 25 minute battle, it seemed like it was anyone’s game, but in the end, Kelsey Wailes found herself the victor, and on her way toward SAF gold!
Bout #2: Jami “Angry Zen Master” Noguchi and Mystery Partner Mecha Impact! defeated Team Sexy Science! (Caldwell Tanner & Jamie Baldwin)
The latest and greatest addition to Super Art Fight, our madcap tag division once again entranced the Ottobar audience, as both teams battled hard, wanting the opportunity to gain a shot at the SAF tag titles at SAFXI. It seemed that Jami Noguchi was actually going to take on Team Sexy Science by himself, but he had a surprise in store for the labcoated duo.Â As Noguchi started to wain, he called out and – in one of the loudest audience reactions in Super Art Fight history – the fans went ballistic as MECHA IMPACT made his debut! Suffice to say, from that moment forward, the bout was in the bag, a welcome return to the winning side of things for both Noguchi and Impink.
Bout #3: GRUDGE MATCH! Brandon J. Carr defeated Nick “Ghostfreehood” Borkowicz
A rematch from our DC debut, many who saw this bout last month couldn’t wait to see it again at the Ottobar, and neither competitor disappointed! Carr and Borkowicz (dressed as Magneto and Cable respectively) gave their all in one of the most tightly contested bouts of the night.Â While it certainly seemed Borkowicz had victory in the bag, a last minute rally allowed Brandon J. Carr to sneak past and grab the win, continuing his amazing undefeated streak. You have to believe he’s in consideration for a future SAF title shot at this rate.
Bout #4: Michael “Spaghetti Kiss” Bracco defeated Bryan “Silent But Violent” Prindiville to retain his Super Art Fight Championship.
We knew going into this bout that it was going to be one of the most hard fought championship bouts in SAF history – but man oh man did it deliver in ways we did not anticipate! Bracco and Prindiville came out swinging, covering the canvas in large art, jockeying for position and each trying to out do each other as the minutes ticked down.Â The fans, clearly divided into Bracco and Prindiville cheering sections each wanted their man to win the battle – but it all came down to the decibel readings. With just FRACTIONS of a point separating the two, Bracco came away with the first successful defense of his second reign, but Prindiville knew that it wouldn’t be too long before he’d be challenging again.
What a great night it was. We’d like to once again thank the Ottobar for hosting us, you fans for coming out and Alliance Comics and ThinkGeek for sponsoring the evening.Â We’ll see you on May 21st for Super Art Fight Idol, sometime in July or August for SAFXI and more dates to come in our summer schedule.Â See you all REAL soon!
