HIGHLAND, IN–For a small local show, FinkE’s Full Contact Challenge is fast becoming a proving ground for up and coming fighters. Promoter, Braulio Corral, has been able to book some talent from outside of the area. They seem to want to test newly learned skills or just stay in fighting shape between major events.
Keith Hackney, Hackney’s Reality Combat, has been on hand to test new fighters from his school. Shonie Carter has taken time out of his busy schedule to bring in a new fighter to test his skills.
This month was no different. Fighters from as far away as Pittsburgh, PA were on hand to try their skills. Lansing, MI was also well represented this night.
Local favorites like Miguel Torres, East Chicago, IN, and Dan Sullivan, Valparaiso, IN, made their presence known with decisive wins. In the advanced rules fights, Sam Wells, Lansing, MI, and Cris Custer, Pittsburgh, PA, showed strong striking skills in their wins.
This monthly event has turned into a guaranteed night of MMA action. The crowd has become knowledgeable and appreciates the fighters efforts. We recommend a visit to FinkE’s on the last Monday of every month to either try your skill or to encourage others in their efforts.
