PRIOR LAKE MAY 19, 2015 Mixed martial arts, the fastest-growing sport in the world, returns to Mystic Lake on Saturday, Aug. 1.
Doors open at 5 p.m. with fights scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. The event will be regulated by the Minnesota Combative Sports Commission. "It's going to be our biggest, best event of the year," said Jeremy Bjornberg of Driller Promotions. "We're beyond excited to be back at Mystic Lake, which is the perfect host for this tremendous event."
Driller's return to Mystic features three title fights and the return of Andre "The Diva" Tieva, who is a Bellator and RFA veteran. Tieva will take on Derrick Mandell in the night's 135-pound main event. Tieva, who is a Minnesota native, will put his 8-1 professional record on the line against the 4-2 Mandell, who also is an RFA veteran.
The night also will feature women's MMA, which is on the rise thanks to UFC superstar Ronda Rousey, who recently graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. Undefeated prospect Jessica Fresh of Iowa will put her 115-pound belt on the line against undefeated Minnesotan Linsey Williams.
In other title fights, Jeff Latsch squares off against Cameron Gilliam for the 170-pound belt and Richard Rodriguez meets Sean Strube for the 135-pound title. Other local superstars in action on Aug. 1 include Ben Locken, Tye Ferguson, Karter Holthusen, Jahan Galehdari, Colton Pasvogel and Eddy Albrecht.
