Hy-Vee Hall rumbles with the sights and sounds of bone-rattling slams during MCC 43: High Octane, which will pit professional MMA fighters against each other during 12 bruise-filled bouts. During the evening's main event, UFC veteran Kevin "The Fire" Burns trades punches, kicks, and physician referrals with Mark Stoddard, who honed his own fighting form on the King of the Cage circuit. Also on the bill, Des Moines native "Sassy" Cassie Rodish grapples with Omaha's Summer Artherton in a bout between two of the Midwest's promising female fighters, and Benly Xamonty—a fan favorite since knocking out Nick Walker with a devastating kick to the head in his MCC debut—takes on Bobby "Bone Crusher" Mosley in a featherweight showdown. While cheering from the stands or just outside the cage, spectators watch as fighters enter the octagon and grapple for each other's wallets.
