Watching an athlete succeed is supremely satisfying, though curiously, so is watching a dam fail. Feel the rush with this GrouponLive deal to Total Mayhem presents The Takeover at the Davis Conference Center. For $25, you get general admission for two on Monday, December 31, at 8 p.m. (a $50 value).
The rising stars of MMA continue their climb through the professional ranks when The Takeover crashes into the Davis Conference Center on New Year’s Eve. Presented by Total Mayhem, which has organized local fighting events since 2008, the full evening of fisticuffs begins with weigh-ins, where fans can watch for free as competitors step onto the scale to determine how much they would cost at a grocery store. Then, the spotlight shifts to the ring when a fight card of eight scheduled bouts starts to unfold, culminating with a main-event battle between Lee "The Cobra" Doss and Aaron "Savage" Sutter. After the fights, guest DJs supply the tunes as guests dance to ring in 2013. Meanwhile, prizes and giveaways send attendees home with keepsakes far less painful than a black eye.
