This coming weekend sees the 17th edition of Dave Strasser's FREESTYLE COMBAT CHALLENGE, one of the midwest's longest running shows. Promoter Dave Strasser, a UFC veteran, comments 'This weekend our show returns to the Coliseum in Racine, Wisconsin. We have competitors from American TOP TEAM, Serrano's Gym in MIlwaukee, Henry Matamoros gym, Duneland Vale Tudo as well as several fighters from the Iowa scene featured on the card, and the card is one of our strongest yet'.
Matchmaker Miguel Iturrate states 'Adrian Serrano versus Emyr Bussard is a match that has the local star in a tough bout - Emyr is 4-1 the FCC, and Adrian is one of the area's most enduring stars. Local fighter Solomon Hutcherson, who has a reputation as a real scrapper, takes on the 'Iron Man', Travis Fulton in another appealing match. The card also features main stays Nick Thompson and Ron Faircloth of Strasser's Freestyle Academy. Faircloth is heading to the February Euphoria event, and Thompson is coming off a big tournament win at the FFC. The complete card appears below.'
