When fighters accidentally look at their target, it's called telegraphing, but when they hit opponents in the face with a typewriter, it's called texting. Witness proper communication with this GrouponLive deal to see the World Fighting Federation Mixed Martial Arts' Fight at the Fields event at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale. For $29, you get two tickets for mezzanine-level seating (marked in green on the seating chart) for Saturday, May 12, at 7:30 p.m. (a $60 value, including all fees).
Body slams and limb-twisting submissions send cheers sweeping through throngs of MMA fans during the World Fighting Federation 8, AKA the Fight at the Fields. Full UFC rules apply to the packed card of scheduled bouts, including the main event between Patrick Dixon and UFC veteran Edgar Garcia, who trade uppercuts and whisper taunting limericks in each other's ears during a battle for middleweight supremacy. Along with title matches in fly-, light-, and heavyweight classes, the co-headlining event dangles the welterweight crown above the clashing hands of Brendan Tierney and Billy Colon, and an amateur fight card sets non-pros against each other in exhibition matches. All evening, the fisticuffs unfold beneath the lights at Salt River Fields' baseball diamond, where the caged hexagon situated above home plate rattles amid bruising blows and the loud pounding from umpires trying to nap under the ring.
