This was the first event that Vegas Sports Magazine attended put on by Sin City Fights Promotions.

Its about to go down in the valley again. Yes, It's the 3rd installment of Sin City Fights. Sin City Fights promotes MMA competition in the valley between amateur fighters. I like many of you are always up for some spirited MMA competition. You can be sure Vegas Sports Magazine will be here to bring you the exciting action.
Well the weigh in started off with a quiet calm over the room. Each fighter entered the room with a still confidence. Their faces told the story. All of them with the belief that tomorrow will be their night. Tomorrow will indeed be victory.
There has been a rumor that Dave Terrel and Phil Dace train at the same gym and have decided that this fight will determine who gets to keep their locker. I'll look foward to seeing who chooses to defend their metal territory in the gym.
James Mcsweeney and Emanual Newton exchanged very little except a stare of determination and foul intentions. I look foward to this battle of the light heavyweights.
Bristol Marunde and Jay Silva had many words to exchange. Bristol promised he would knock Jay out. In kind, Jay just simply said I knock "fools" out. (He did not actually say fools but I'll let you use your imagination.) Oh and this is the first ever title bout. So ;"get your popcorn ready" -Terrell Owens; it's about to go down.
This is the main event. John had no problem guaranteeing you would go home satisfied after this fight. Luiz is definitely up for it. The two of them came in physically fit, cut , and smiling ready to do battle.
Fight night tomorrow night at the Orleans Arena be there cause I will.
