MMA Fight at North Middle School “A Smash Hit”

ufadsc_0017Bunny Hawkersmith, owner of Bunny’s MMA and president of the United Fighters Alliance who promoted the MMA Mixed Martial Arts event at North Middle School in Decherd on Saturday night, Nov. 7, said the event was a “smash hit.”

“We had a full crowd of people that were more than satisfied,” Hawkersmith said. “Everyone was congratulating me on how well organized and professionally run the show was. I’ve had call after call and people coming up to me everywhere I go, wanting to know when the next event is to be held. I am so pleased how well the show went.

People from all over the nation, as far away as California, competed. One competitor was an NFL football player with the Redskins, and Ray Mercer of the Boston Celtics was sitting in the crowd as well as the other five stars that were on the special guest appearance list.

Hawkersmith also said this event has led to other competitions for his fighters.

A promoter from Illinois, who promotes fights for Harrah’s casinos in Las Vegas asked Hawkersmith about adding one of his fighters to his Vegas fight card at the beginning of the year.

“I was flattered to get such an offer,” Hawkersmith said. “[The promoter] said our fighters were very professional, and he was really impressed for a show in such a small town to be as good as the other shows he has attended. I give all the credit to the vendors, photographers and video crews, my fighters, our sponsors, volunteers and the people of this county who came out and supported this event to make it a smash hit.”

Hawkersmith said due to the success of Saturday’s event he plans on hosting another fight sometime in the near future.
