Midwest Cage Championship pairs elite fighters from the Midwest to duke it out in extreme mixed-martial-arts cage matches. The Friday-night event lines up a total of 12 fights, with the headlining event pitting former MCC middleweight champion Brian Green against Kyle Davis. Welterweight, catchweight, and empty paper-bag-weight divisions kick-off the event with extreme sparring corralled into an octagonal cage where only winning, losing, or last-minute helicopter escapes will lead to release. Other full-contact fights include the venomous female duo of Mariah Johnson versus Cassie Rodish, with the lineup rounded out by such notable fisticuffers as Ronnie Britt, Josh Christensen, and Luis Saldana.
