Midwest Cage Championship 17: Thanksgiving Throwdown


Midwest Cage Championship's MCC 17: Thanksgiving Throwdown Continues Third Year of Tradition Including Two Title Fights

Des Moines, IA- October 7, 2008- Mixed martial arts (MMA) once again lights up the historic Val Air Ballroom on Wednesday, November 26. MCC 17: Thanksgiving Throwdown, is the third annual MCC event held on the eve of Thanksgiving. The special holiday show consistently showcases much of the top talent from throughout the year. This years show features two championship bouts, including one that will crown the vacant middleweight belt. The other title bout welcomes the return of current MCC light heavyweight champ, and WEC veteran, Chuck "The Reverend" Grigsby.

Grigsby's preparation and WEC experience will come into play as he returns to MCC to defend his title against perhaps his greatest challenger to date. Grigsby faces Travis "Ironman" Fulton, a UFC vet credited with the most fights in mixed martial arts history. Fulton's resume of 200 plus fights reads like a virtual who's who of the sport, and a win by Grigsby would catapult him to center spotlight.

The evenings co-main event and middleweight title bout features undefeated prospect Zac Cummings vs. former MCC champ Mike "Mini Van" Van Meer. Cumings previously ripped through opponents like Victor Moreno and Danny Anderson in his quest for the coveted championship. Van Meer is a one man fight factory, and the match up of these two fine wrestlers combined with impressive stand and bang talents are sure to please the crowd.

Other top billed fights in the eleven bout card include Cole Jennett as he moves one step closer to a title shot when he takes on Chris Powers. Jennett's recent loss to Mike Van Meer has fueled his competitive fire to win this bout. Jennett has expanded his training regimen and partners, and went on record stating "losing is not an option". Powers has wins against both Brian Green and Doug Onstot and he appears unfazed by the challenge. The warrior who takes this match places himself in line for a title shot.

Fans will also line up to see proven performers including Paul "The Gingabread Man" Bird, Josh "The Bull Christensen, Jesse Lund, and Ryan Langmaid.

Door open at 6:30 PM, with fights starting promptly at 7:30 PM. Tickets can be purchased at the Val Air box office, by calling 515-223-6152, and on-line at http://www.midwestcagechampionship.com and at http://www.tickemaster.com
