MCC’s Justin “Fight of the Night” Fuson is ready to live up to his nickname once again
If you’ve been to an MCC event when Justin Fuson has competed, you should remember it. Fuson is the guy standing in the center of the cage winging kicks and punches at his opponent. Often bloodied himself, Fuson moves forward and whether he tires in the first or the third he is able to keep the same pace.
And he has never been stopped.

When the Head Hunter fights the Arm Thief, and why styles make fights
It’s the age old cliché when it comes to the sport of mixed martial arts; to prove which style is the most dominant. Although 75% of the fights end up on the ground at some point, 100% of them start on the feet.
On August 2, 2013 a somewhat green brawler named Bob Gilmore and subsequently goes by “White Trash” stepped in the ring, as he always does, with the intention of knocking someone’s head into the cheap seats. Like boxing’s former heavyweight champion, “Iron” Mike Tyson, every punch Bob Gilmore throws is violent, and intended to put its recipient to sleep.
However, the man standing across the cage, Spencer “Acom Braco” Drish had other intentions.
Flyweight’s amped to take main event status at MCC 52: “Hostile Territory”
It’s been two years and two months since a flyweight championship bout has taken place inside the cage at MCC. And for perennial contender, Tony “Lil Crusher” Crowder, that’s all he’s been able to think about.
“I haven’t stopped thinking about the belt since I lost my opportunity the first time a champ was crowned. I’m a better fighter than I was then. I’ve matured, I’ve become more focused, and I can’t wait to fight.”
MCC 52: “Hostile Territory” set for March 7
The Midwest’s most popular promotion announced their return to Hy Vee Hall and along with releasing the date; the card has been stacked for a night of guaranteed fireworks inside the cage.
March 7 will mark the official crowing of the flyweight champ as top contender’s Tony “Lil Crusher” Crowder and Marc TongVan will meet in a bout scheduled for five rounds for the vacant belt. And history will be made as MCC will strap a belt around the waist of the first amateur champion when powerhouse, Roy Moore goes toe to toe against Justin “Fight of the Night” Fuson.
