With less than 48 hours until the Midwest largest annual event returns to the shores of Lake Erie, Driven MMA in conjunction with the NAAFS, have released the official bout order for Saturday nights pro-am card.
The night main card will feature Bellator FC veteran and NAAFS World Champion Frank Caraballo take on UFC veteran Tommy Hayden. The co-main event is no snoozer either with elite bantamweight prospects Isaiah Chapman colliding with Andrew Whitney. Rumor has it both of these young fighters are on the UFC’s radar and a win for either could be the final push they need to land a coveted contract from the world’s premier MMA promotion.
In addition to a stacked fight card, MMA fans will have the opportunity to meet Cleveland’s own UFC stars Stipe Miocic and Jessica “Evil” Eye, both of whom have participated on this very event in years past.
Presale tickets are still available by visiting www.Fightniteintheflats.com or pick up your tickets at the door on Saturday starting at 5PM. VIP seating is becoming limited and all bouts are subject to change. This event will also stream on I-PPV viawww.GoFightlive.tv for those living outside of the NE Ohio region.
