HCL 27: Don't Do The Flu was the twenty-seventh mixed martial arts event held by the Human Cockfighting League. The event took place on January 12, 2014 from the Tupelo Events Center & Honey Warehouse in Tupelo, Mississippi, and was the first HCL event of 2014.
This event featured seven sanctioned mixed martial arts bouts. All fights consisted of three five-minute rounds, except for the main event championship fight, which consisted of five five-minute rounds.
The main event featured yet another successful title defense by arguably the best pound-for-pound competitor in all of HCL, Dwayne De Recha. His opponent, Frenchman Francois Gorgonzola, put up a tough effort, even besting the champion in a few rounds. However, the Mexican-born tattoo artist proved too much, and disposed of his challenger with a crushing knockout in the fourth round.
In a fight between two heavyweights desperate to end their losing streak, youngster Aaron Blue bested former champion Leo Serengeti, with a stunning second round knockout. This marks a third loss in a row for Serengeti, who has not won since losing his title to Jorgi Magumbo.
However, the show-stealing moment may have been yet another crushing knockout win by Russian Sergei Matryoshka, decimating another opponent and reminding fans of his claim to a future championship title shot.
Shortly after it aired, this card was considered, by HCL commentators and many fans, to have been HCL's best event in its 2-year history. Prior to this, HCL 10 was often considered to hold this unofficial title.
