11_03_06_fight.jpgIf you are into no-holds-barred fighting, then you will likely be heading to the UIC Pavilion this Saturday night to check out IMMAC's ATTACK Mixed Martial Arts event.

Mixed Martial Arts is fighting that allows the fighters to use a variety of fighting techniques. The moves, punches, kicks, and holds are a mix of maneuvers from the following forms of fighting: Boxing, Karate, Kickboxing, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu (including Brazilian and Gracie), Judo, Taekwondo, and Wrestling.

Saturday's event will feature 24 fighters in 12 bouts. The feature match will pit Tommy Lee (no, not that Tommy Lee) versus Dan "The Pennsylvania Hitman" Swift. The event starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday; tickets are available on Ticketmaster and also at the UIC Pavilion Box Office.
