Feb, 1 2014 JC Productions held event at Harlingen TX.

Several major issues concerning TDLR decisions on letting event continue -match times-lengths in question

3 Championship bouts- 1 was 3x3 minute rds- Co-main was 5x5 and the main event was 3x5 minute rounds. Upon asking why main was 3x5- answer was stated that the opponent finishes his fights fast and it doesn't need to be that long??
The event was held outdoors. Upon start time of the event the wind picked up to 15-20 mph. There was excessive amount of condensation build up on the mats.JC Productions and staff did everything they could to dry off the mats- and even was prepared to fight the next day if need be. From the first fight- every fighter in the cage that night slipped and fell- causing several major injuries- torn ligament- dislocated finger- fractured jaw. Even the ref stopped a Championship bout to DRY off an (area) in rd 2- due to the excessive build up.Fighters could not fight the way they where trained under these conditions and played a huge factor in the whole night and several outcomes of the event.This is unacceptable. As the time and effort and camp they go through for months-they don't get that back..There is video evidence of such non-sense that will be submitted to TDLR. When some officials and refs are saying they fixing to stop the event and it doesn't happen is beyond us.. Help us spread the word and put the right things forward to make this right.Making this a no contest event. We appreciate your support and we wish all fighters from that night safe and speedy recovery from an event that should of been postponed to a later day.
