The BankAtlantic Center box offices are located on both the North and South sides of the main entrance. Their normal business hours are 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The box office will be open the day of the event beginning at 10 a.m. The first live fight on Oct. 4 begins at 6 p.m. ET.

The fight card, headlined by the unbeaten, exciting Kimbo and talented, undefeated women’s superstar, Gina Carano, is presented by Los Angeles-based ProElite, Inc.’s live fight division, EliteXC.

A major MMA attraction, Kimbo (3-0) possesses ferocious striking skills and is coming off a thrilling third-round TKO over England’s James “Colossus” Thompson on May 31.

“I’ll fight anybody, anywhere, but it’s always nice to fight at home,” said Kimbo, who required all of 62 seconds to dispatch of his initial two opponents. Kimbo, aka Kevin Ferguson, made a name for himself on the Internet where videos of the bald, bearded, menacing-looking, former underground no-knuckle street fighter have been downloaded literally millions of times on YouTube.

Carano, aka “Crush” on American Gladiators, is the most recognizable female MMA fighter in the world. She registered a second-round TKO over Kaitlin Young in her last start on May 31.

It’s apparent the moment you meet Carano that she’s the epitome of strength; a strong woman: mentally, spiritually and physically. Yes, she is more than a pretty face. A Muay Thai specialist, the crowd-pleasing Carano garnered national notoriety for her quote: “We're not hitting tennis balls. We're hitting people. Isn't that more exciting?”

Opponents for Kimbo and Carano will be announced soon. For more information on Kimbo and Gina, please log on to http://www.elitexc.com. For information about the BankAtlantic Center, please visit http://www.bankatlanticcenter.com/about/FactsandFigures.asp.
