Headlining this card is Pan Am BJJ Brown Belt World Champion and Georgia's own Ethan Garrison 7-0 who is taking on his biggest challenge to date in "Vicious" Sammy Collingwood out of FL.

Taunts, screams and disrespectful gestures are often thrown at losing opponents from Collingwood. Once even leading into a second fight occurring once the first had been finished resulting in Sammy getting head-butted and retaliating with a front kick to the face of his sitting opponent. "Am I out of my league? Ethan should be asking is he out of HIS league." Said Sammy on an interview on Sportfightx.com.
"I like to knock people out, but it doesn't matter to me how I win, all I can say is he's gon' FEEL it. Dhiego, you better be ready to get it on." Says Keon Caldwell with a thick Georgia accent, who is UNDEFEATED 7-0 and taking on Ascencion MMA's Dhiego Lima who is 2-0 and one of the southeast's most explosive up-and-comers. When asked what he thought of fighting such an experienced opponent Lima replied "I'm not intimidated at all by his record. I will fight anybody. Records are only numbers, and when the cage door shuts, it's just me and him. And that's all that matters. We will see if he is still undefeated after this fight."
