Launched in 2005 by Boise-based Knockout Promotions, the Xtreme Fight Series continues with its 60th installment, Bad Blood, which rumbles into CenturyLink Arena on September 7. Some of the sport's grittiest up-and-coming competitors will settle scores during a full evening of bruise-inducing bouts. Brandon Upchurch headlines a men's fight card that is also scheduled to showcase haymakers thrown by Colton Vaughn. On the women's side, the spotlight shines brightest on Amber Perkins, whose intimidating stare has been known to dissolve opponents into their primordial state: piles of protein powder.
2013 Chili & Salsa Fest
What makes a chili recipe the best there is? The judges at this year's Chili & Salsa fest will have to figure that out for themselves as they award entries of chili—and salsa—in this year's competitions. At Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park, the scents of fall food mingle in the air, making it tricky for patrons to decide whose wares to sample. And as evening comes on, so does the crowd, as the event shifts to watching college and NFL football on the big screen.
