The weather is still a little chilly out there, but this is gonna be another hot weekend for MMA in this great State of ours. We’ve got no less that five awesome events around the state and one that happened Tuesday night (unfortunately we found out a little to late, and we apologize but will strive to do better from Cheap Jordans here on out). Now on to the information you came here for…


A few days ago, on March 2nd, 2010, Donofrio Entertainment and Caged Warrior Combat presented the MMA Cagefight War, an annual charity event by the Shelby Township Lion’s Club at the Palazzo Grande Banquet and Event Center. Karen Newman sang the National Anthem and there was a scheduled appearance by Dave Rozema and other special guests. Tickets included Premium Dinner, Top Shelf Open Bar and Door Prizes. All proceeds benefited the Lions Charities. We’ll try to be more on top of things when this comes around next year.
