Jeff Holmes and Braedon Ward help HRMMA celebrate 11 years this weekend



HRMMA is set to celebrate its 11-year anniversary this weekend, as HRMMA 112 goes down at the Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown, Kentucky on Saturday.

And in a fitting celebration, two fighters who are ingrained in the fabric of the promotion will headline the event, as Jeff Holmes (6-6) and Braedon Ward (4-7) square off in a lightweight bout.

Holmes will compete under the HRMMA banner for the fifth time as a pro, as the representative of Etown Beatdown will be the hometown favorite in Elizabethtown. A pro since 2009, he looks to snap a two-fight losing streak, including a loss against Branden Bishop at HRMMA 102 in 2018. He has five wins via stoppage, including three submissions. He’s ranked as the No. 8 pro lightweight in Kentucky by Tapology.

A Bowling Green product, Ward has spent nearly his entire pro career under the HRMMA banner, save for one fight. After starting off 0-4, the Billy Scott Catch Wrestling representative is 4-3 in his last seven bouts, including a win over Branden Bishop at HRMMA 104 last November. He’s ranked as the No. 21 pro lightweight in Kentucky.

Other pro bouts feature featherweights Zach Hicks (4-3) vs. Michael Ricketts (7-5) and middleweights Dornes “KO” Butler (0-0) vs. Jacob Warf (0-0).

Four amateur titles will also be on the line, including super middleweight (195 pounds), bantamweight, lightweight, and flyweight.

Check out the current lineup below.
