“The SSF Invitational: Darkness” took place on Sat., Aug. 22, 2009 at Appleton’s Harley Davidson in Clarksville, Tenn. It was a great afternoon of fights held outdoors underneath a cloudy sky and PRO MMA (promma.info) was there to take in all the action. The fights had to be stopped a couple of times due to a light sprinkle, but the officials would spread a tarp over the surface of the cage to keep it dry, and everything worked out fine.

In addition to the fights, SSF Submission Academy’s pole dancing workout class put on a great performance, and the metal band “Infinitus” rocked the crowd before the fights and during intermission.
