Now here's something fun for a Friday night—Blogtown is giving away THREE tickets each to TWO lucky people for tonight's Sportfight XXIII at the Rose Garden (courtesy of Global Spectrum). If you're into mixed martial arts or just enjoy the thrill of two guys beating the holy hell out of each other, you're gonna want to go for this. AND THEY'RE GREAT SEATS, TOO, IN THE 100 SECTION.
Here's a description of tonight's main event:
Main Event: Welterweight Championship
Welterweight Michael Pierce, SportFight Champion (7-0), Braveheart MMA/Gresham, OR vs. Nathan Coy (4-0), Team Quest/Portland, OR
At SportFight 21, Michael Pierce used his superior grappling skills to frustrate champion Ed Nuno and take the welterweight belt. But his time around he'll have to defend his title against another top-notch wrestler in Nathan Coy, who was an All-American at Oregon State. Coy has also shown he can let his fists do the talking, winning his last two fights via knockout and submission (strikes). In addition to the welterweight championship, both pride and team bragging rights will be on the line for these two fighters, who used to train together at Team Quest before Pierce moved on to Braveheart MMA.
