Weekend MMA Preview: Fierce FC, 5280 Muay Thai Matchups and Local MMA News

This is your Colorado MMA News Weekend Preview.

Fierce Fighting Championship’s New Era event goes down on Saturday, February 15th, and two Colorado-based fighters will be making the trip West to compete.

Factory X Muay Thai’s Brian “Hollywood” Mitchell (1-1) will get back into the cage in Utah when he takes on Thomas Hughes (1-2) in a featherweight battle. Mitchell stepped in on short notice to take this fight and will be looking to get back to his winning ways while putting on a show for the Utah crowd.

Additionally, Elevation Fight Team and Easton Centennial’s Randy Rowland (4-4) will face Trever Bradshaw at 155 lbs. Rowland has won two of his last three fights and has a 100% early finish rate in his pro bouts.

Bradshaw also boasts a 100% early finish rate, all coming in the first round, so you won’t want to blink during this one.

LFA’s return To Colorado will come on April 3rd as LFA 85 goes down at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield.
