Hardrock MMA returns to the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green for their 98th event this Saturday and the event is lined up for a night of grappling and MMA. The evening will start with five youth grappling matches and end with a welterweight professional fight between Ricky Jones Junior and Aleksey Itunin.
Ricky Jones Junior was scheduled to make an appearance as an amateur on the card but a change of plans have lead to his professional debut. Itunin had a successful amateur career and will be in search of his first professional win .
The bantamweight title is on the line as Kris Riley looks to build off his last Hardrock MMA performance against the tough Bradley McGar. These two are exciting to watch and a new champion will get to bring a title back to their gym.
The event takes place Saturday with doors opening at 6 p.m. and the event starts at 7:30. Tickets and limited number of VIP tables are available at HardrockMMA.com
