Fighters Raise Money for Wounded Service Members
EL PASO - Worldwide MMA Sports will "fight for a better world" during its inaugural event... broadcast live on Pay-Per-View from the Sun City.
"Throwing, kicking, scratching, good family entertainment," said WMMA President William McFarlane.
McFarlane hopes the event will pack a punch... as the company will donate proceeds to the "Wounded Warrior Project"... which benefits our nation's wounded service members.
"A lot of us in the company have a passion towards the military for what they do, what they've done and what they'll always do and protect this country. So it was important to us to give back," said McFarlane.
The event features a knockout world-class fight card... which includes super heavy-weight Sean McCorkle in the main event.
"Sean is a bohemoth. He's 6'7" about 315 pounds...solid muscle. He's a physical specimen. In fact, he's just walking in right now," said McCorkle.
They call him "Big Sexy"...
"They can expect me to be very good looking, far better-looking than my opponent and I will probably win extremely fast," said McCorkle.
McCorkle hopes to beat his opponent... Brian Heden... black and blue... to show his support of the red, white and blue.
"Anytime you can fight for something more than just to make some greedy promoter money because promoters typically are the slimiest people in the world that I've met. But anytime you can do something for a good cause like that it really makes you feel good and I'm glad to be part of it," said McCorkle.
You can catch the hard-hitting action this Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Don Haskins Center.
Tickets are available at any Ticketmaster location.
