    There is a Bill on the table now to apparently legalize MMA in Michigan. So everyone please cross your fingers so that in a few months we can actually have legal fights in my "backyard". :x:

    its not legal? they have mma at soaring eagle, which is an indian casino, so maybe thats exempt.


    they also have smaller local organizations around that i've seen.

    On the Reservations is legal, they can't control it there. But the stuff at the Palace, Birch Run, and Kerry Roops is all illegal/non-sanctioned.

    A guy from my gym actually fought his first fight (and won) at the indian casino in Mt Pleasant... I forget which one that one is.

    Yep, my buddy ran the show in flint last night and i cornered a few of my buddies. It was an amazing gig, with a packed place and even Rashad Evans was there. He was pushing for pro fights.

    Yep, it's all over. Kerry is probably gonna get hammered to with all of his events and guest reffing at diff places.

    Yeah I think Kerry got a little too popular, and now everyone knows about it.

    gotta believe Severn is doing everything possible to get this done. It'd be sweet if it got legalized and he had fights at his gym. I could almost walk there. :o

    He actually has his own fight promotion known as Danger Zone. I don't know where it is now (if it's based out of Ohio or not), but my instructor was the 155 champ there at one time.

    His gym is right here in Coldwater, MI, like a mile from my house. :eek3:
    They go all over for their fights though.

    Who is your instructor? :cool:

    Chris Malgeri. It was a while back when he was still fighting Pro. He has the plaque from the tournament on the wall at the gym.
