MCF and NEBRASKAland Days Bring World Class MMA to NP

Are you ready for war?

NEBRASKAland Days (NLD) and Midwest Championship Fighting (MCF) announced a partnership Thursday that will bring world-class Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to flatrock.

The event will be held during the NLD celebration.

MCF 7 Wild Wild West features a card that is sure to have MMA fans drooling and will surely create many new fans.

The card, orchestrated by Matchmaker Kelly Wiseman, is loaded with professional and amateur talent.

NLD Executive Director David said, “The addition of MCF 7 to our Celebration is a recognition of changing times.”  He added, “Consumers are looking for new and exciting events, and MCF certainly brings that to the table.”

MCF owner Russ Jones said, “MCF’s first event after being on hiatus for a long period of time was held on March 16 and was hugely successful.”

“NLD is an established event with a facility that lends itself well to spectator events.  We hope to continue to grow our events, and this venue allows us to do that,” Jones added.

Jones said the event will garner regional and national attention due to the caliber of fighters the event features.

There will be four scheduled professional bouts, with the Main Event featuring MCF Heavyweight Champ Rob Mitchell matched against Jose Beltran.  The card also includes several fighters who have fought in major promotions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator, and will also feature several women’s bouts.  The Ultimate Fighting Championship recently added female bouts to its events.

Additionally, the event will feature two four-man tournaments.

MCF 7 Wild Wild West will take place on Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m, at the Wild West Arena, immediately after the NLD Opening Ceremonies, which begin at 4:45 and the Wild West Microfest which starts at 5:00 p.m.

There are several ticket options for the event ranging from 10-seat ringside tables for $450.00, to $20.00 grandstand seating.

Fudge says he and Jones both agreed that the event needed to be made affordable.

Tickets can be purchased at or at the NLD office at 509 E. 4th Street, Suite G.
