The octagon is an astonishing frame capable of stopping traffic with signage, deflecting rain with umbrellas, and keeping fighters from escaping a barrage of furious forearms. Celebrate the shape that separates you from the official bow-throwers: for $12, you get one general-admission standing-room-only ticket to Wild Bill's Fight Night on Saturday, September 11, at Wild Bill's in Duluth (a $25 value). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the first mixed-martial-arts bout begins promptly at 8:30 p.m. Police, firemen, and military servicemen get in free with a proper ID.
The fight card for this knuckle-wrapped evening boasts a dozen MMA fights, including professional, amateur, and advanced-amateur bouts. With a special guest appearance from decorated UFC phenom Nate Diaz, champion of The Ultimate Fighter 5, the night will be a full-force strike to the adrenal gland for all MMA fans. Featured fighters include Georgia's own Clint Hester, North Carolina's Johnny Buck, and the North Pole's Santa Claus bearing gifts of fury for all naughty fighters.
After a night in Wild Bill's massive, brilliantly lit interior, the sounds and smells of a fresh fight will leave fans in an adrenaline haze for days to come. This Groupon suffices as a ticket; just bring it to the venue and enjoy the action.
