As you guys know I'm a big MMA fan. I have chatted with UFC fighters and I love to support local MMA. This weekend over at the Richmond Raceway Complex a pro-MMA event will go with CFFC 18. The organization has roots in the Northeast and they are expanding to the South. The card features a lot local Richmond fighters that train out of the MMA Institute. The main event will be a fight between Mike Wade and UFC Ultimate Fighter finalist Kris McCray. Also on the card is former Virginia Tech Hokie wrestler Donnie Ooton. Everything starts at 7pm at RIR and you can get information at CFFC.TV. Below I chatted with a few of the fighters and organizers of the event.
