I know there's been a bit of a hiatus of written content coming from the PacNW MMA, and that's about to change as we at MMAmadhouse continue to focus on local mma around the planet - especially in our own back yard!
We are continuing the tradition of bringing the people of Oregon and southern Washington today's up-and-coming event information, live coverage, and fight results.
This Saturday Prime Fighting returns for their third show. Look for another big night of mixed martial arts action as Prime Fighting is hosting both professional and amateur bouts at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield, WA.
The main event of the night will be a featherweight showdown between Enoch ‘The Animal’ Wilson of Animal House MMA and Omar Avelar of Avelar MMA, while the heavyweights will take center stage in the co-main event as Chris De La Rocha and Richard Foster face off.
There are currently 8 bouts listed on the card, split evenly with 4 amateur fights and 4 professional.
