Each time I am blessed enough to attend and do LIVE results for Proving Grounds presented by Warrior Camp CDA and Warrior Camp Gym, I see nothing but extreme professionalism from the Proving Grounds and Warrior Camp staff.  Pablo and Rose Alfonso (Thank You) really do put on an AMAZING show!  If you get a chance to go to their next event (8/23/19), I HIGHLY recommend you get your ticket early.  The fights last night got to Standing Room Only! 

I arrived at The Hub at Liberty Lake around 5pm to get set up and prepare for the night of upcoming battles!  The fight card as usual had great match-ups including 3 Championship bouts scheduled for the night! As the fighters started to show up, you could see their excitement and focus thinking about their upcoming fights.  

I love connecting with meeting the fighters and fight camps who put on a show for the crowd just to build their record and gain experience in the cage.  The fighters, win, lose, or draw have all the respect in the world from me.  The fighters on the night’s event come from several different gyms, with 823 MMA, Iron Man Gym, Sacred Scars, Warrior Camp, Spokane Valley Bjj, Chewelah Jiu Jitsu, and Execution gym all being represented.  

Michael Smith the ring announcer is always amazing in the cage throughout the night, hyping up the crowd by jumping on top of the cage.  Cary Ross as usually just puts everyone in “awe” with his incredible voice while singing the National Anthem.  The referees on the night were Randy Silva, Mark Coates, and John Goldsmith.  These 3 refs are truly some of the best refs in the NW and though some fighters may not agree with a stoppage, the refs are there to protect the fighters.  One of the BEST Photographers in the world Katie Hartwig was in the house snapping another round of highlight reel photos! It was so great to Nancy from Women of Combat in the house!  They are such a great company, please make sure you go check them out!  2x Ultimate Fighter Winner coach Rick Little and recent Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series fighter Terrance Mckinney were also in attendance.
