Today is the day for the Patriot Act 2 by Headhunters Productions. The event will be occuring at the Holiday Inn Express in Columbia, MO. Headlining the event is
Jeff "Snowman" Monson versus Pat Smith and Ben "Funky" Askren versus Mitchell Harris.
This will be Askren's second professional MMA match. He won his first fight against David Flowers by TKO in the first round back in February. Harris is coming in with a record of 1-3 with his most recent fight resulting in a win by decision. His losses are 1 by submission and 2 by TKO. If I were to bet on this fight, I'd have to pick Askren.
Also fighting tonight is ATTs Lucas Lopes against CJ Fernandes. Lopes (8-8) has a strong background in Muay Thai and a brown belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu, I am excited to see him fight tonight. Fernandes has more experience with a record of 14-8-3, but I'm still going to go for Lopes to pull out the W.
Purefight.org will provide live coverage of the event here.
It appears as Monson's fight has been canceled according to the event update on Sherdog. When I find out why I'll let you all know.
