    MFC – New Jersey’s MMA Event Looks Out For Charity!

    MFC 5 ‘USA versus JAPAN’
    Saturday, November 5th, 2005
    Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino, Atlantic City, NJ

    As part of the upcoming MFC-5 ‘USA vs Japan’, the MFC will be donating some money to a worthy cause, the Passaic County Elks Club Cerebral Palsy Center’ states matchmaker Miguel Iturrate. ‘This center is a school committed to helping kids with various disabilities and special needs. One of our fighters, Joey ‘Knockdown’ Brown works with one of the kids, and we wanted to support his efforts. We didnt want to collect money from a bunch of people, the MFC wanted to become involved and write a check directly. Other groups have become involved, like the AFC in Florida, our friends at BOUTREVIEW and several of the fighters on the card have added to the collections, so on November 5th the will receive a donation from the MFC and the MMA community. IT is a good thing.’

    Joey ‘Knockdown’ Brown fights Japanese star Hiroyuki Abe on November 5th’s MFC 5 ‘Japan v USA’ event, in one of the feature bouts of the evening.

    This is a fight I can’t wait to see. Thankfully I’ll be there to see it in person. I’m excited about seeing a couple of more experienced females compete.

    I will try to get some picks, but I don’t know if that will happen. I will be looking at the fight as a friend not a spectator. I haven’t been this excited for a fight in a long time. It’s fights like this that are great for female fighting.

    Never met Amanda but Tara is a good friend of mine. Talked to her the other day and she seems to be as pumped about fighting as everyone else wanting to see the fight. Good luck to both fighters.
