It is going to be an Ultimate Fighter reunion in Nashville, Tenn. on July 18, 2009, when The Ultimate Fighter season 8 contestant and UFC “TUF 8 Finale” veteran Shane Primm (2-1) takes on TUF 7 contestant and IFL veteran Mike Dolce (4-6) in the main event of Music City MMA’s “Rock & Havoc.”
Primm fights out of Guardian MMA in Murfreesboro, Tenn. He will be looking to get back on track after losing to Krzysztof Soszynski last December. Dolce would like to keep the wins going as he lost six in a row before winning his last bout against Nuri Shakir at “WCF 6” back in March.
In the co-main event, The Ultimate Fighter season 6 contestant (and Cole Miller roommate) Blake Bowman (2-2) will face local product Dustin West. Bowman’s last bout was a loss to Ryan Keenan at “Rumble in Race Town” back in February. West also fought in February with a submission win over Josh Lester at “SSF 6.”
In addition to the professional mixed martial arts action, “Rock & Havoc” will feature performances from four different rock bands: Halo Stereo, The Motorflys, Newmatic, and November. The MC for the event will be Peyton Turner from the VH1 reality show “Rock of Love.”
Music City MMA’s “Rock & Havoc” will begin at 8pm on Sat., July 18, 2009 at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. Tickets for the event may be purchased through Ticketmaster. Stay tuned to PRO MMA (promma.info) for more information regarding this event.
