From the event’s promoter:
Black Headlines First Extreme Challenge in Iowa City
Jason Black will put his undefeated record on the line Sept. 13 when he takes on Marcel Perigord in the main event of Extreme Challenge 53 in Iowa City.
It will be the first MMA event held in Iowa City.
"We’ve had Extreme Challenge events in just about every city in Iowa," said promoter Monte Cox. "But we have never been able to find the right place in Iowa City… and it isn’t because we haven’t looked. Finally, we found a sponsor that wanted to support the event."
The show will be held in the Gateway Center parking lot, which is in front of sponsor Big Ten Rentals.
Black, who is 16-0-1, is a member of Team Extreme and trains with the Miletich Fighting Systems in Davenport, Iowa. He is the TKO (formerly UCC) welterweight champion and is generally considered among the top 170-pounders in the world. He won the Extreme Impact world title in London, England, a little over a month ago.
Perigord is from Fort Hood, Texas, and has a Tae Kwon Do background and a year of MMA training… he is 1-0 as a professional.
In a feature bout, former Iowa Hawkeye wrestler Ben Uker will return to Iowa City for his pro debut. Uker will face Dan Anderson of Des Moines, who sports a perfect 3-0 pro mark.
Other fights for the show are being put together, but will consist of top amateurs from around the Midwest.
Gates open at 6 p.m. with the first bout at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at numerous locations — Sam’s Pizza, The Sports Column, McInnerney’s and Big Ten Rentals… all in Iowa City.
