Mixed martial arts event coming to Twin River

February 10, 2011

LINCOLN --- The Blackstone Valley will certainly make its presence felt at Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.’s next mixed martial arts show.
Five local fighters, three from Pawtucket and two from Woonsocket, will be featured on the undercard of an action-packed “Rhode Rage” show on Friday, Feb. 25, at the Twin River Event Center.
This will be CES’s third MMA card in Rhode Island, and while its inaugural “First Blood” show last Sept. 17 and “Snow Brawl’ event on Dec. 2 at Twin River were smashing successes, “Rhode Rage” could top them both.
