    Haha sorry… Didn’t mean to ruin your game. I knew we won it, but I thought Dagon Lair won it too?

  5. Kerrigan says:

    I think this was Aguilano’s second fight, he had been training jiu jitsu for about 6 months and had no other martial arts experience. Bicahlo was one of the Northeast’s original badasses and even Aguilano’s teammates didn’t think he had much of a chance but he made Bicahlo fight his fight and got the win. How many times would we see that happen again in the next few years?

    I have always thought Bicahlo was UFC material and he is probably still only in his 20’s…anyone know if he is still training/fighting?
