Great lineup Dustin.. I wont miss this one.. what time do the gates open?


I cant belive I did not post that info. I have updated above, but so you all know:

Doors Open at 6:30pm / "Rage" starts at 7:30pm

Should be a great show!



Hope you can make it!


Ray Elbe,

This is one of my smaller shows. Unless your fighters are "very green" and willing to cover thier own travel, then it owuld nto be worth it for them to come out here. I am only looking for fighters that want to gain some expirence. I am going to have a few "expirenced fighters" on each card, but nothing real big!

Thanks for your intrest!



Are you going to be able to make it to the show?

Dustin Ware










I am shameless!!!

Got your mail...You got Mail!


Thanks Todd! I cant wite to see your fight on Feb. 28th. I have 3 guys on teh card as well! It will be good to have so many "WV Fighters" on that show.





Hope to make the trip!

This should be a good show. I know there is not any "big names", but I know for fact that the skill of these fighters will make for an exciting show.

Thanks yo all of you for your support, and I will see you all at the "Rage"!
