  • California Fight Syndicate
    More than 10 pro and amateur battles swarm the fight card in the California Fight Syndicate's first L.A. event. At the top of the bill, Joseph “Leonidas” Henle, a popular cast member from The Ultimate Fighter's 11th season, locks knuckle horns with middleweight Hector Carillo. After a sabbatical from the cage to focus on a second career as a miniaturist, fellow Ultimate Fighter alum Jesse “Powder” Newell heaves shin sandwiches at fellow featherweight and MMA veteran Aaron “Blood Spiller” Miller. Between fights, fans can cool down from the carnage by checking out the California Fight Syndicate's ring girls, who entertain the crowd with alluring double-dutch routines. Swift jabs, fierce kicks, and vicious takedowns rattle a cage set up in the historic Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, which hosted the Academy Awards in the '60s, when they were much more hardcore.
