Tallahassee Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Combat Nights Release

Tallahassee Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Combat Nights is putting on a Charity MMA event in Tallahassee, March 2nd. We have put on multiple mixed martial arts events in town, as well as across the state of the Florida. Our goal is to give back to the community and get everyone involved.

The charity we will be sponsoring with this event will be The Anthony Revell Scholarship. If you do not know about the scholarship, it is in honor of Anthony Revell, a law enforcement agent who passed away 6/29/2011. While riding his motorcycle, he collided with an ambulance at the intersection of High Rd. and Tennessee St. In his memory, a scholarship foundation has been created at Tallahassee Community College, since he was graduate of the local college.

We have an event filled day planned for March 2nd in his honor. After weigh-ins at the Hobbit American Grill on Pensacola St. on Friday at 5:00 PM, Saturday will start with a charity car wash at 10:00 AM at Status Liquors on the corner of Tennessee St. and White Dr. There will be food, beverages, and music going all day until 5:00 PM. Combat Night will be giving away tickets for their event that night to anyone that donates $25.00 or more to the Anthony Revell Scholarship.

At the MMA fights that night, we are also proud to have a Ultimate Fighter 17 reunion. In case you did not know, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) is a reality show on FX networks, that takes rising MMA stars and puts them in a house as they fight for a contract in the highest organization of mixed martial arts, the UFC.

If you are also unaware, one of the members on the show is local MMA star Josh Samman. He and his partner, Mitchell Chamale, (also another professional fighter and FSU graduate) are the ones responsible for the company. They followed their dream and are now helping amateur fighters by giving them an opportunity to fight for a promotion that is unmatched in the amateur level, and most professional events for that matter. They are building amateur's careers through great exposure at incredible venues.

The Ultimate Fighter 17 is currently being shown Tuesday nights on FX at 9:00 PM. Not only will Josh Samman, be present at the event, but he will also have other fighters from the show in attendance. It will be a TUF 17 reunion, with Josh Samman, Adam Cella, and Clint Hester. This part alone will be an opportunity that people may never get again. To have three professional, high level, talented MMA fighters, that are also TV stars in the same building. tAnd the best part, is that building will be right here in Tallahassee.

The MMA event will be held at very popular Coliseum. The doors will open at 6:00 PM, with the first fight starting at 7:00 PM. The event will end at 10:00 PM.

Just to recap...
· March 2nd
· Charity Car Wash

The Combat Night, MMA Event wants to help out with this scholarship as much as we can, as it is in honor of a local fallen law enforcement agent. Your help will be very much appreciated.
