Hooknshoot: Showdownmma Returns To Evansville, Indiana
From the event’s promoter:
MMA Returns to Evansville, Indiana
On Saturday July 14th, The Evansville Memorial Coliseum will once again play host Evansville’s own HOOKnSHOOT. "EEEEEEEYYYYYYAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!" HnS promoter Jeff Osborne is screaming again! "We’ve had over 30 shows now and it amazes me how we can just keep getting better. Really it is all due to the fighters and we have some great guys fighting on this card." continues Osborne.
TITLES ON THE LINE: PLUS THE RETURN OF AARON RILEY!!!
If that wasn’t enough, young gun Yves Edwards and Aaron Riley are scheduled to square off in the Main Event for the HOOKnSHOOT Middleweight title. This is a highly anticipated match, because the champion Riley is returning to HOOKnSHOOT to defend his title for the first time in nearly one year. One of HnS brightest stars, Riley has been training at AMC Pankration ever since, and should come back with more polished skills. There is also the history between these two men. Yves Edwards needs no introduction to the Evansville crowd, as he has eanred numerous victories in impressive style in Evansville. Yves also defeated Aaron at HOOKnSHOOT "Texas Heat" for the Submission-Fighting title that Aaron held at the time (October 1999). Looking for smoking guns as both of these men like to bang with both barrels, Riley looking for a little revenge, and Edwards looking to add another belt to his collection.
The event will showcase 8 other exciting bouts leading up to these feature matches. Included in this the "Battle of Spaniards", which is expected to be one of the most highly skilled matches in HnS history, AMC Pankration student and native of Chile, Ivan Salaverri, will face-off against Manuel Garcia from Austrias, Spain. Garcia is an Abu Dhabi 2000 veteran, and has extensive Vale Tudo training with the Ruas Vale Tudo Team. He hold Vale Tudo titles in every weight class in Spain and is looking to test himself internationally – and HOOKnSHOOT is the place!
"We will be back on September 29th as well" concludes Osborne, "but we are eagerly anticipating SHOWDOWN first".
