My first live MMA experience!
POST#1 Okay, so I'm checking out the blog here for the first time today. Not sure how this works, but here we go!
I'm very excited about just purchasing tickets to my first live pro mma fight tournament. Art of Fighting 9: Apocalypse. This will take place in the city of Jacksonville, FL at the Veterans Memorial Arena on September 4, 2010 at 6:00 PM!
The main event will be a world title bout between veteran welterweights Delson "Pe de Chumbo" Heleno and Jason "The Kansas City Bandit" High.
The fight card line up looks pretty good. A couple of the fights are pro and there seem to be quite a few amateur that will be making their pro debut as well as a couple of amateur fights as well.
You can actually check out the event and fight card of the night at the Art of Fighting's website: http://www.aofmma.com/ I actually know two of the fighters who are making their pro debut. One of them is actually a capoeirista as well, which is how I know him.
I hope he does really well! I'll be there rooting for him, and enjoying the fights of the night! I will update once I've attended the event. I'll be scrambling trying to find my camera until then because I would very much like to take pictures.
If I can get any good ones (if I even find my camera, it's been missing for a while) I will post them here :-)
