Another wild and crazy action packed event brought to you by AdoreAble Promotions Inc.

It was the return of Extreme Cage Combat 8.0 on Friday Night, March 19, 2010. Over one thousand fight fans packed the Prime Event Center in Downtown Bay City.

Local cage fighters along with fighters from all over Michigan showcased their talent in a mixed martial arts extreme event all confined inside a steel cage.

Referee, Dave Knaggs, definitely had his hands full with 17 wild & crazy bouts.

Stephen Coppler, President of AdoreAble Promotions, Inc. and Director of Entertainment and Booking at the Prime Event Center said, "Seventeen great fights, a sold out crowd and the best cage fights yet!"

Winning a championship belt in the Lightweight Division, nineteen year old, Troy Lamson of Flint, said, "I felt a lot more comfortable than my 1st fight, and I feel like I was more than prepared."

Lamson continued, "I really wish I would of landed a head-kick for a classy knockout but I was more than happy with a win." Lamson said, "I just won the Division 3 state wrestling championship 2 weeks earlier and adding on to the belts really meant a lot."

According to Coppler, all 5 champions will be back to defend their championship belts at Hooters Fight Nights this summer on July 23, 24, 2010.
