28 Jan Local Tucson Fighters Need to be on UFC Fight Night Card-Glendale AZ
US Elite Combat
UFC Fight Night Glendale, AZ
April 14, 2018
Gila River Arena
With a great main event with The Most Violent Man in MMA Justin Gaethje who is Native Safford, AZ versus Dustin Poirier and the co-main event with Carlos Condit (Albuquerque) versus Matt Brown. These are bangers and ready to know some heads off. Which is a solid draw for UFC.
Would like to submit these fighters from Tucson, thank you for the considerations Sean Shelby & Mick Maynard and Dana White
The name of the game is putting asses seats. We have a handful of fighters that can put fans into seats.
