Duel Citizenship

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Muay Thai. Grappling and triangle-choking. Is there anything that mixed martial arts doesn’t incorporate? (So far, metal-chair skull-cracking, though the way things are going, that could very well happen one day. For now, the WWE has dibs on that move.) It’s no wonder the sport is blowing up in popularity, especially given events like EVO MMA – The Evolution of Mixed Martial Arts.

Check out five high-octane matches featuring members of Arizona Combat Sports. Fights include Steve "Red Nose" Berger versus Ray “C4” Steinbeiss, Glendale wrestler Ben Henderson facing off against Atlanta-based brawler Junior Assuncao, and a battle of 155-pound sparkplugs, Alonzo Martinez and Danilo Cherman.
