    The state was originally against this and were not going to allow closed fist strikes while both fighters were standing. Severn and Marc Fennell got this reversed yesterday by explaining the possibility of eye-gouging, etc.

    I first heard about this just last night when I ran into Severn at Wal Mart :rofl:


    Then I just got his newsletter email:







    "DZ 35 Update: Striking Allowed!"

    On January 29th, Dan Severn and Danger Zone's Senior referee, Marc Fennell attended the meeting on the rules and regulations for MMA in the state of Michigan. Through the influence of Severn and Fennell, the state will allow striking while on the feet. The Danger Zone event on March 15th will now revert to our traditional rules which can be found at the website www.the-dangerzone.com. The card is almost complete, if you are interested in competing, contact us immediately at [email protected].

    Also, there will be a four man 155 lb. tournament. It has been agreed that the winner of this tournament will compete on a future "King of the Cage" card here in Michigan. To sign up for that contact us at [email protected]

    We are also accepting sponsor and vendor opportunities for this event as well. You may call us at (517) 278-4908 to pricing info and how we can help your business.

    To get $2.00 off per ticket, you must purchase your tickets online at www.dansevern.com or www.the-dangerzone.com by Feb. 1st.

    Thank you,
    Danger Zone Staff
