Ultimate Fight Night: "Fort Bragg" In North Carolina

New, 6 comments

That's the word according to MMAMania:

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will once again pay tribute to United States servicemen and women when it stages a free Spike TV event for the troops at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, N.C., on December 10.

Similar to UFC Fight Night from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in Miramar, Calif., on December 12, 2006, the event will be free for military personnel to attend and likely feature a fight card that is littered with veterans of the armed services who now compete in mixed martial arts.

Fort Bragg is known as the "Home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces," according to the official Web site. It also the home for the XVIII Airborne Corps and the 82nd Airborne Division. The US Army Special Operations Command and the US Army Parachute Team (the Golden Knights) also call Fort Bragg home.
This is a very big deal for me being that I only live about 40 minutes from the military base. I have some friends that have been asking me when the UFC was going have an event in North Carolina...well HERE IT IS!! I'm gonna try my best to cover this event live. Stay tuned to MMA4Real as more details come about for this event.
