MMA is more then two people getting into a cage (or ring, whatever) and wailing on each other.

There’s a story that each fight tells, ranging from the type of training the fighter has endured, to the gym they’ve trained at, and when all of it comes together, the fight becomes similar to a live chess game of sorts.  Each move is calculated, executed and countered with rapid mental consideration and lighting reflexes.

It’s a moment in time, that showcases the fighter’s strength, strategy, dedication, and knowledge of the sport they’ve chosen.

I spent two years training MMA at fight gym in Atlanta, and can honestly tell you that it’s the best mental, spiritual and physical outlet, I’ve ever experienced.  I hope this event is a huge success, and Fight Night continues in PCB.

The Fight Night coming up Saturday, January 29th is being held to benefit Logan G. Smith Foundation & Ultimate MMA Youth Program. This program mentors local youth through the sport of Mixed Martial Arts, offering them positive outlets, a safe environment and opportunities to better themselves physically, mentally and spiritually.

The Fight card will be local Youths from the Program, and the main fight between undefeated Mixed Martial Artists, Lionel James of Panama City vs. Rance Jones Jr. of Pensacola

The Official Weigh Ins for the event will be held on Friday, January 28th at Uncle Ernie’s Restaurant as will the After Party preceding the night’s action
