(Elko, MN) - It will be no-holds barred action on Friday night, June 27, as Elko Speedway and Champions Entertainment Centre will play host to a full night of ultimate fighting known as Cage Combat. The night will feature the first round of a four-man bantam weight tournament that will conclude on Friday, August 1.
The featured fighters for the tournament include New Richmond, Wisconsin’s Zach Wolfe (15-4 record), known as one of the top fighters out of the Devil’s Den; Kent Nathe (8-2) from Sartell; undefeated Lloyd McKinney (5-0) from La Crosse, WI and area pro Jared Chaney from Rochester.
