In a venue usually accustomed to hosting rodeos and livestock shows, the atmosphere was slightly different, with blaring hip hop entrance music, a scantily clad ring girl and intensely focused fighters pacing the floor in anticipation of the next fight.

Hundreds of fans had come from as close as Jamestown and as far as the Turtle Mountain Reservation to witness a first in Valley City: mixed martial arts cage fighting.
