(May 21, 2008) Visalia, CA - Friday, June 6th, 2008, PURECOMBAT returns to the Visalia Convention Center with BOMBS AWAY! A night of hard hitting mixed martial arts action returns to downtown Visalia, CA with 10 full contact cage fights. The card is headlined by a Welterweight World Title defense. Champion Brett ‘Fudoshin’ Cooper takes on challenger Dustin ‘the Rooster’ Arden in a main event sure to be fight of the night.

In the main event, PURECOMBAT Welterweight World Champion Brett Cooper makes his first title defense against Terra Bella’s own Dustin ‘the Rooster’ Arden. Cooper is on a 3 fight win streak, including a win over Jason von Flue in December, when he won the PURECOMBAT title in what Inside MMA called ‘the all-out war of the year.’ The challenger, Arden, is known for his ‘never say die’ hyper-aggressive fighting style. He will come throwing bombs, looking to test Cooper’s concrete chin and immovable spirit.

In the co-main event, the Pride of Tulare, Hector Alatorre, Jr, returns to the cage in a rematch with Hanford’s Elvis Franco. Alatorre, holding a 15-3 record as a professional boxer, is the most accomplished boxer to attempt a crossover to mixed martial arts. His debut in the cage was inconclusive, as he was penalized for illegal strikes, leading to his contest being ruled a draw. Franco, training out of Team Ochoa in Hanford, scored well with kicks and takedowns against Alatorre in their first fight in February. He started and ended the fight strong, and intends to make Alatorre’s career in MMA a rocky one.

Don’t miss a night of explosive mixed martial arts action as 20 of the nation’s best fighters step into the cage in Visalia, CA’s Convention Center. Friday, June 6th, the doors open at 6pm and fights start at 7:30pm. For tickets, call 559-713-4040 or go online at http://www.purecombatmma.com
