Saturday August, 14th 2010 marks the second installment of Fight For Wrestling™ live from the Icardo Center on the campus of California State University Bakersfield. In an epic battle to keep collegiate wrestling alive in Bakersfield, the “Fight for Wrestling™” team who promoted the first event last month at Cal Poly University is at it again. Fight for Wrestling™ was conceptualized by MMA Promoter and Matchmaker Scott Adams to help out the Cal Poly Wrestling program from being eliminated like so many other programs. Fight for Wrestling™-“Bakersfield” is an event to do exactly the same for the “Roadrunners”.
All proceeds will go directly to the UC Bakersfield Athletic department ear marked for the Wrestling program. This event will feature some of California's best up and coming fighters in an action packed night of MMA bouts that will leave the fans excited to help the cause.
CSUB alum and former wrestler Brian “The Bandit” Cobb (15-6) will face off against Jon “The King of Late Night” Carson (9-2) in the main event. Stact House veteran Jesse Bowen (7-4) from Merced looks to test his skills against Nor Cal Fight Factory’s crafty journeyman Alvin Cacdac (8-6) of San Jose, CA. Bakersfield’s own Doug Hunt (8-3) looks to make it five in a row against “FFW- Cal Poly” main event winner Cruz Gomez (14-8). Doors open at 5:00pm first fight is at 6:30, be sure to get there early!
