props to xcc for stepping n up doing the first pro show........finally pro mma in michigan!

Yeah!!! TTT

Looking forward to a great show!!



Matt Flynn and XCC had an amateur show at the Royal Oak Music Theater this past weekend. This is the same venue that the pro show will be at in January.

The set up was incredible and I can NOT wait to fight there. This will be an awesome night, and I can picture that place being packed top to bottom with fans. There's balcony seating upstairs which provided a great view AND there was a bar upstairs as well as downstairs. Nice place and the cage set up was awesome looking.

 Matt will me and Brandon Hunt be fighting are rubber match at this event?

why doe it say 2009? and i would love to see a rubber match between brad and brandon

I'm sure it's suppose to say "2010"...

 nice job Matt! Should be a great event!

BadBradBurrick -  Matt will me and Brandon Hunt be fighting are rubber match at this event?

 You know you won't find out until about 3 weeks before. Why ask now?

Brad - It would be awesome to have Hunt vs Burrick 3 at Michigan's 1st pro sanctioned event. However, you know that your fight will have to be held a KOTC event.



Do we have any fights set for this yet

One of the main events features a fighter from the Ronan fight team and current King of the Cage Middleweight World Champion “Bad”  Brad Burrick in a rematch against  Eddie “The Enforcer” Sanchez.    “Bad Brad” is one of the best of the best on his feet looks to awe the crowd with his kicking and striking skills.  However, in their previous battle in the cage, “The Enforcer” won by a majority decision. 

The co main event features Featherweight  Myles ”Fury” Jury from the Mash Fight Team who looks to take his professional perfect record to 7-0 in a battle with Michael “Boogyman” Bogner from Ohio.  Jury said “ I’m looking forward to finally meeting Bogner in the cage.  This fight was previously scheduled twice before and now it’s gonna happen in my backyard”.

 Vernon “The Iceman” Parris makes is professional  MMA debut in the cage.   “The Iceman” has a perfect 20-0 record as a professional boxer who brings amazing speed and heavy hands with a long history of Knockouts .  However,  Alex “Columbus” Michell  looks to discover a way to spoil “The Icemans” MMA debut.

Matt Flynn, President of Xtreme Cagefighting Championship stated “I have put on professional sanctioned MMA events all across the country and can finally put one on in my home state .  This is a great opportunity for Michigan/st1:state fighters to showcase their talents without having to leave Michigan/st1:place/st1:state.  We are looking to make the Royal Oak Music Theatre as our premier venue for our professional fight series.   We have put together some epic match ups on this fight card that will make for an amazing inaugural professional sanctioned event.”

Co Promoter Greg Ahrens is president of Cage Combat MMA  www.cagecombatmma.com  and has been promoting MMA events throughout the Midwest/st1:place for the past 6 years .

Ahrens remarked: “We are pleased to promote this event for what will no doubt be a phenomenal night of mixed martial arts. We are honored to provide the platform for some of Michigan/st1:place/st1:state’s professional MMA Fighters to showcase their talents in front of a home crowd and World Wide Television audience.

I am especially excited to see West Michigan fighters Ray Lopez (Holland/st1:city) and Caleb Grummet (Lake/st1:placetype Odessa/st1:placename/st1:place) on the card.  Grummet will be taking on Richie Lictawa.  .  These two battled it out last year for the XCC Middleweight Belt.  Grummet prevailed last year and is currently vacating both the XCC & Cage Combat MMA Middleweight belts to make his pro debut against Lictawa.   Lictawa.  is ready for the challenge and looking forward to getting revenge.  Lopez is coming off an impressive victory for King of The Cage this past October knocking out Wisconsin/st1:place/st1:state’s  #1 ranked Light Heavyweight  7-1 fighter.  Lopez is will battle “Big” Don Richard from Mash Gym.   Richard has a Black belt in Caique Jiu-Jitsu and has fought in the cage against warriors such as Dan “The Beast” Severn/st1:place, Brandon Vera, and Ben Rothwell./o:p

Justin Miller, General Manager with The Royal Oak Music Theatre stated:  “We wanted to bring MMA to the Royal Oak Music Theatre, and The Xtreme Cagefighting Championship was a natural choice.  The XCC is one of the biggest, best and most highly recognized MMA outlets and we are fortunate to have built a solid relationship with them. The Royal Oak Music Theatre is excited and proud to host Michigan/st1:state’s first professional sanctioned event and through our partnership with the XCC we look forward to becoming the premier Michigan/st1:place/st1:state venue for professional mixed martial arts.”

Matt Flynn, Promoter and Matchmaker of the XCC commented: “We have a long standing relationship and have done a lot of great fights at The Royal Oak Music Theatre.  Some of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts today have fought here and no doubt the “Rumble in Royal Oak 5” fight card could potentially uncover new talent to put on Xtreme Cagefighting Championship’s  world stage.”

It also needs to be noted that most of the top camps in Michigan/st1:place/st1:state will be bringing their fight teams. The following camps have committed fighters:  Team Ronan MMA,  James Lee’s Mash Fight Team, Powerhouse MMA,  Martial Arts Unlimited,  Mash Gym,  Warrior Way, Team THC,  and Grand rapids MMA.   They will be bringing only their best fighters.   They are an exceptional representation of the incredible talent pool we have here in this state.”/o:p
