From the event’s promoter:

Rage in the Cage XXV Preview
Rage in the Cage is the longest running Xtreme cage fighting event in the Phoenix Metro area. RITC XXIV at Celebrity Theatre was a smashing success. Fans were treated to 22 action packed fights. 

By popular demand, the elevated stage for the RITC octagon will be lowered to floor level. This will provide even better viewing of all the action.

Carlos “El Loco” Lopez, the New Mexico Xtreme Champ, will try to dethrone the current #1 ranked RITC Heavyweight fighter and RITC Heavyweight Champion, Homer “Rock” Moore. David “The Beast” Harris will once again make his presence known in a rematch against Edwin “Baby Face” Dewees for the RITC Light Heavyweight Championship. Allan “A-Dawg” Sullivan will compete, trying to earn a shot at the RITC Heavyweight title. Super Heavyweight Justin “Big Dawg” Lyon ( 6’4″, 365 lbs ) will battle Kauai “The Hawaiian Assassin” Kuphiea ( 6’5″, 280 lbs ). Female RITC Champion fighter Michele “Grapple Girl” Farrow will put her title on the line against Jamie Lyn.

Brausa Cage Warrior fighters Bill “Cannon” Cameron, Mike “Mangler” Berardi, Farrell “Full Moon” Frisbee, Shawn “Nuke” Upshur and the rest of the Brausa Team are primed to put it on the line against two fighting teams from California, the Shark Tank and the Submission Factory.

The Celebrity Theatre can accommodate 2700 fight fans. It offers tiered unobstructed seating with no seat more than 75 feet from the stage. There are no bad seats at Celebrity Theatre and this venue was recently voted as the number one place to view an event in Arizona.

Tickets are available at all Ticket Master locations ( 480-784-4444 ) or at the Celebrity Theatre Box Office.
