The following article was submitted to us via FightMichigan friend, top-shelf trainer and distinguished gentleman Al Cooper. It was a breath of fresh air to receive a publish-ready, well written article such as this one! So, we’ve decided to post it, as written, with links added in. Hats off to Mr. Donofrio for yet another off-the-chain, memorable event! And hats off to ALL of his awesome staff, without whom these spectacular events couldn’t be as flawlessly put together as they are consistently, each and every time. So, without further ado, here is the article:
Promoter Joseph Donofrio put on another of his world-class MMA events on Saturday night (January 14) and treated the large crowd at The Palace of Auburn Hills, to an exciting night of full-contact thrills.
“New Year’s Revolution”, presented in association with Impact Fight League and Palace Sports and Entertainment, featured six men’s title fights and one women’s, plus 16 fights in total.
Also on display were the beautiful cage girls, thumping music, blazing light shows and the superb work of ring announcer Phil “The Voice” Davey to truly create an unparalleled MMA experience in the Midwest.
Burns kept his distance and stifled Grisham’s aggression with quick leg and body kicks. Studio Grisham seemed baffled by Burns’ careful attack and spent much of the fight following him around the cage.
Grisham finally found some success in the fifth and final round, but it was not enough.
Boxing legend Jackie Kallen was among the glitzy crowd seated around cageside.
All of the night’s matches were competitive and exciting and the credit must go to matchmaker Al Cooper.
Donofrio is scheduled to return to the Palace in February for another MMA show.
