Weekend Preview: September 8th
There are a lot of great fights in the month of September and the first stop on the month-long fight tour is Saturday at the Alton Eagles. A great looking card featuring several local gyms including St. Charles MMA, SouthSide Fight Club, I-Fight Club as well as many local fighters from Alton, and areas north of St. Louis.
CageReady, based out of Alton, IL is mostly known for their fight wear and can be seen on the backs of many local fighters and fans. They've put on great shows in the past, and have seen several top amateurs compete in their cage before turning pro.
In the main event Cory Tinnon takes on Teddy Snydor. Tinnon has a wicked guilotine as evident from this fight against Justin Yacko at Faction 3. This should be a great match-up, and expect both fighters to show up ready for a war.
Also on the card is Ken Porter, a fighter hungry for action since moving his training to St. Charles MMA. Porter is one of the area's top amateurs and always puts on an exciting fight. He'll be taking on the "Guerrilla Frog" Brian Farrell.
