Here is a very brief rundown of the fight card:

1. Newcomer Benny Thompson, a freelance fighter, will take on Chris Mitchell, from Attitude First, to start

    the Friday night action.

2. Hayley Salazar, from Boxing Inc, is a strong striker. Nicole Escobido, trained by GrappleGirl at AMAC, is

    a submission specialist. Should be a classic.

3. Colten Smith, from Attitude First, will make his debut against former BMX pro rider Mike Gul out of Team


4. Dominik Cruz, from Boxing Inc, has been unstoppable at 4-0 against top competition. Nick Hedrick, from

    AMAC, has lots of experience. Should be a tough test for Dominik.

5. Craig Davis, from Havoc, who used to train with Jamie Varner takes on wrestling sensation Eddie Casto

    from Devil's Den.

6. Alex Flamino, from ACMMA, who is trained by black belt Marc Zee goes against Jeremy Neer, from Team

    Brausa, who is the uncle of nationally known fighter Josh Neer.

7. Both Robert King from AJJA and Seth Baczynski from Team Brausa are 0-1. Barring a draw someone will

    get their first win.

8. Newcomer Mike Ashford, from Devil's Den, has about 3% body fat. He'd win a pose down against Homer.

    Ron Ayers, from ACMMA, looks like "the strongest man in the world". Don't know who will win the pose

    down or who will win this fight but it sure will be entertaining.

9. RJ Gamez, a boxer/wrestler out of AJJA, after nearly a year lay-off will take on wrestling standout Adam

    Roland from Team Brausa.

10. Eric Ferreira is a 5'4" "fireplug" farm boy from the midwest now training in California. He's a highly

     regarded wrestler who will take on "slick" Ed West from Tucson who has a 6-0 RITC record.

11. Gabe Casillas, from Debrazil/Rey Diogo Academy in Tucson, will soon be receiving his BJJ brown belt.

     Anthony Triliegi, a former Marine, just moved to the area. He's had several undergroung fights in the mid

     vwest and is making his RITC debut with a high degree of confidence.

12. Kyle Brees, out of ACMMA, is one of the best Lightweights in the country. This will be his last bout until

     a Dec 10 showdown against Bart Palazewski in Illinois. Kyle is stepping up a weight class to challenge

     Norman "Psycho" Pierce who has been away from the sport for over 4 years. He "retired" in early 2001

     with a 7-2 record in RITC. Should be a great "new school" verses "old school" matchup.

13. Former Pro boxer Rich Alten, from Ryan Defense, will battle Tucson's Shane "Battlecat" Johnson out of

     Boxing, Inc.

14. Chad Armstrong, a karate specialist from Casa Grande, should provide the toughest test to date for

     undefeated "KO King" ( :03, :17, :30, 1:55 ) Gilbert Aldano, from Team Brausa.

15. Veteran Melville Calabaca will try to put an end to the undefeated streak of Brian Bourgeois, out of

     Genesis JJ/Team Brausa.
