The Prime Event Center was filled with fight-fans to watch the best extreme fighters from around the Tri-Cities battling it out, all inside a Steel Cage in an action packed Mixed Martial Arts show.

It was the return of Extreme Cage Combat 8.0 to downtown Bay City on Friday, October 23, 2009.

Master of Ceremonies, Stephen Coppler, (President of AdoreAble Promotions Inc.) said, "It was a great night of fights, cage girls, contests, loud music, and great fight fans." Coppler continued, "The elevated cage, made it possible for everyone to see all the action, there was not a bad seat in the house!"

Cage bouts consist of three (3-minute) rounds max, and were judged based on not only striking, but also on grappling, submission attempts, reversals, escapes and defense. The quickest fight of the night was over in 11 seconds.
