Fists, For the People
“By the people, for the people,” said our beloved 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, about the principles this country was founded on. Little did Honest Abe know when he uttered these choice words in his renowned Gettysburg’s Address, but he also provided a fantastic descriptive for local mixed-martial-arts organization American Battle Championships too. ABC, you see, is a group of MMA fighters who formed their own league and stage fights every month. The result is a night of intense, full fight cards with no intermissions. With two title fights and one ladies kickboxing contest planned, the American Battle MMA Championship 2013 season kicks off the new year with serious aplomb. The homegrown, grassroots ass-kicking begins at 7 p.m. Monday at the Venue, located at 2345 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors. Tickets cost $25 online and $30 at the door. Call 954-765-6968, or visit fightabc.com.
Mon., Jan. 21, 7 p.m., 2013
