Cheer on appropriate brawling with today's GrouponLive deal: for $7, you get one adult admission to the Duke City Derby championship bout at Albuquerque Convention Center on Saturday, October 22, at 6 p.m. (up to a $15 value).

Formed in 2005 by 10 pioneering rink-rounders, Duke City Derby showcases feminine athleticism and colorful nicknames with roller-derby bouts that feature Albuquerque-, Santa Fe-, and Taos-area teams. In the season-capping championship bout, four teams will duke it out for third- and first-place glory. At 6 p.m., the Ho-Bots take on the Taos Whiplashes, whizzing around the rink to oust opponents with defensive jabs and fake exit signs. After the crowning of the third-place champion, the DIA and Disco Brawlers will chase first place with the sport's signature blend of savage athleticism and feisty personality. Of-age revelers can whet cheering whistles at an on-site bar, and family-friendly games entertain both youngsters and their imaginary roller-derby coaches.
