  2. Is this why Dequan did not want to fight Justin at the XCC show. You should have dodged him again and your elbow would not be broke.

  3. Curt, thats kind of a shitty thing to say about any fighter that gets hurt in the cage. These fighters are warriors no matter what promotion they fight under, and when a fighter gets hurts its a sad day. Some promotions are better and bigger then others yes, but a fighter getting hurt isnt a good thing. Dequan and Justin are both warriors in my book and I take my hat off and salute them both. Now with that being said make sure you guys all come out to my co promotion with the XCC on May 15th in Lansing it will be a great night of fights.
    HONOR COURAGE AND COMMITMENT!!!

  4. My names Josh, owner of MMACHEAPCAGERENTAL.com and have a sanctioned MMA cage that I rent to promoters/leagues for a lower rate than what they are currently paying. A lower rate for you means more money in your pocket after your event. My starting rate is $800, which includes all set up/tear down/ and Transportation cost. My rates are low, my servce is great; please visit my website and hopefully I hear from you.

Weigh in for yourself!
