18 ULTIMATE CAGEFIGHTING BOUTS SCHEDULED.
       
    The main event will feature fighters who have battled opponents throughout the United States.  Shreveport's own Christian Fulgium, former Ultimate Fighter participant, will fight in the main event against Ricky Compala.  Both fighters have excellent professional records and are sure to entertain.  Fireworks are guaranteed when these two lock up for a USA-MMA title elimination bout.            
        
The 205 USA-MMA Champioship will also be on the line when Raul Jimenez battles Ronnie Rodriguez.  Both fighters are Texas natives and have devastated their competition as of late.  Raul Jimenez remains undefeated after 4 bouts in the last 8 months.  Ronnie Rodriguez has only 1 loss to his credit. 
 
UFC veteran, "Crazy" Tim Credeur, will be in the house cornering two of his highly touted prospects.  Credeur has won his last three UFC fights and is making his mark in the cage and as a trainer of fighters.  Credeur currently trains Christian Fulgium and trains Dustin Porier, who is making his professional debut at River City Rampage.
