Amateur Head-Bashing

Famed mixed martial arts fighters Chuck Liddell and Bram Imes didn't glean how to bash people's heads in just by watching videos. Both of them got their start in amateur MMA rings. Renegades Country Bar and Grill in West Palm Beach offers the best amateur matches in South Florida, with caged rings and all. This Monday's Rumble at Renegade 15 promises to be stellar, with four title fights on the line and several female fights on the card. Full-combat female MMA fights are a spectacle not to be missed, worth every penny. Rumble at Renegade 15 goes down Monday at Renegades, 600 Village Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Doors open at 6 p.m., and entertainment starts at 7 p.m. Tickets run from $25 to $55, depending on how close you want to sit to the cage. Visit fightabc.com, or call 561-674-3446.
