Snow kept us Maine boys home this time...we all wanted to be there unfortunately Steve Domenico was the only one crazy enough to show up, or far enough away from the heavy snow line...We're sitting on over a foot of snow here in York, Maine where Lars Borssen and myself will be enjoying this Cage Titans event from the comfort on my mancave/office where we will buy the pay per view and enjoy refreshments.
