Kick-boxed to a Pulp

How many among us can truly claim to have a healthy and productive outlet for the immense rage that grows within us, what with hurricanes barreling our way on a weekly basis? It just makes you want to punch someone, but acting out that fantasy would most likely land you in jail. Instead, let’s live vicariously through professionally trained fighters at Warriors Collide 6, taking place Saturday night. These aren’t just your garden-variety boxers throwing jabs here — audience members will see fighters versed in everything from Muay Tai to grappling going toe to toe. So grab your tickets, pick a fighter, and channel your aggression into the ring before it bores a hole in your stomach. Tickets start at $20, and can be purchased through or the box office at the War Memorial Auditorium (800 NE 8th St. Fort Lauderdale). Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; the beatings begin an hour later.
