MMA Beatdown 21 at 4 Bears Casino

4 Bears Casino and Lodge will be hosting the MMA Beatdown 21 on Saturday at 7 p.m.

The casino has been hosting fights for over 15 years, proving itself to be one of the best fight locations in the Upper Midwest. According to 4 Bears, over 20 fighters have used the casino and the Beatdown Series to either get to the UFC, Bellator, or other higher organizations. Two of the competitors, Johnny Case and Mike Rhodes, are hoping a win could get them back to the UFC.

For North Dakota, there will be five area competitors. Marshall Martin and Kyle Olsen are both from Fargo. From West Fargo, there will be Cameron Ramberg and Nik Austermiller. The fifth state competitor, Tyler Vogel, is from Bismarck.

The Beatdown 21 will have eight fights, though these fights are subject to change until the day of the fight. The main event will be Brandon Longano from Marietta, Ga., versus Johnny Case from Glendale, Ariz. The Special Women’s Attraction will be Alexa Conners from Las Vegas going up against Carina Damm from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The North Dakota fighters will appear in the regular fights with Kyle Olsen going up against Tyler Vogel.

As a special guest, 4 Bears will be having Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig from the UFC in attendance. A UFC fighter, American kickboxer, Muay Thai fighter, and mixed martial artist, Herrig is ranked No. 8 in UFC’s women’s strawweight division. She is currently at 4-0 in her last four fights and will fight again on April 7 for the UFC.

Tickets start at $25 with a variety of options. For $170 the casino offers a Stay and Play Package where you will receive two general admission tickets, one hotel room, and $20 in Free Slot play.
