Ron Tripp from C3 Fights sent along the following:
For immediate release:
In preparation for the First Council Casino’s ” Battle on the Border — Oklahoma vs Kansas Showdown” MMA event on Saturday, March 29th, featured fighter Dewees suffered a back injury during practice and was hospitalized Wednesday, March 26th. That same day 205 lb. C3 Fights Champion Wayne Cole was contacted by Showtime to fight on Saturday. With Dewees out of the picture due to injury, we sent Wayne Cole to California with best wishes. His call up signifies that C3 Fights is on the radar for true champions. We wish him great success.
True to C3 Fights form we are not going to disappoint our fans. We have secured two great fighters to replace Dewees and Cole. International Champion and fight star Rick “The Jet” Roufus, 7 times ISKA and World K-1 Champion 57-7 vs Mike Buell, combined MMA record of 55-6, US Army Special Forces, 82nd Airborne Division, 2 time All-Army boxing champion, veteran of the Gulf War.
