Kentucky’s Hardrock MMA puts on 61st event tomorrow night in Bowling Green

The first Hardrock MMA event that I attended was in Bowling Green at the Sloan Convention Center. It was MMA in one room and a prom in the other. Oh, how times have changed. Now the Kentucky powerhouse promotion demands the entire conference center to meet the demand of the fans and they return tomorrow night for 13 fights.

Kentucky’s Hardrock MMA to celebrate 60th event tonight

It has been one of the most talked about events in recent memory for Hardrock MMA. There is good reason for the buzz. The fight card has been put together with some of the most competitive fights and rising stars throughout the state. The 2014 campaign kicks off tonight in Shepherdsville for Hardrock MMA 60.

Upcoming MMA events – December preview

With the TUF 10 Finale, UFC 107, WEC 45, Strikeforce: Evolution, and New Year's Eve in Japan, December is another stacked month of action for MMA fans.

The month of November was huge for MMA fans. We had Sengoku 11, Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers, UFC 105, WEC 44, Strikeforce – Challengers Series 5, and UFC 106. We also had The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights each Wednesday night.

These shows produced some of the best fights of the year. “Pee Wee” Herman knocked out “Big” Jim York with a crazy heel smash, Fedor knocked out Brett Rogers, Dan Hardy took out Mike Swick, Michael Bisping finished Denis Kang, Jose Aldo knocked out Mike Brown, Josh Koscheck choked out Anthony Johnson, and “Lil’ Nog” made a very impressive UFC debut with his knockout of Luiz Cane.

Let’s take a look forward to December to see what big shows we have coming up.
