MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

So We’re Serious About this War MMA Thing, Huh? Main Event of War MMA 1 Confirmed


(Screen capture of the War MMA website, NickDiazPromotions.com.)

If you assumed that War MMA would never get past the planning stages, then do I have a surprise for you: It looks like Nick Diaz got that temporary promoter’s license, because War MMA 1 is officially set for June 22 from the Stockton Arena and the main card appears set for the inaugural event.

Hell, tickets even went on sale, with ringside (yes, as in a ring not a cage) seats still available as of writing this!

Unsurprisingly, the main event will feature a Team Cesar Gracie fighter – UFC veteran Daniel Roberts (14-4, 3-4 UFC) – fighting against the most formidable local opponent the promotion can find. Via NickDiazPromotions.com:

Fighting out of San Francisco, Daniel Roberts is set to face challenger Justin Baesman from the East Bay of California. Roberts has had numerous bouts in the UFC and trains with the Cesar Gracie Fight Team. Baesman now with a 12-4 record, has looked good as of late and a win over Roberts would catapult him to the next level of his career.

As for the rest of the main card, there are a few names you may recognize:

Main Card:
Daniel Roberts vs. Justin Baesman
Antonio Banuelos vs. Benny Vinson
Caleb Mitchell vs. Evan Esguerra
Mike Persons vs. Clayton McKinney
Darin Cooley vs. Cody Gibson
Roy Boughton vs. Liron Wilson
Chris Quitiquit vs. Dominic Clark

There haven’t been any announced bouts for the undercard, so if you’re holding out on hope that there will be a gloriously preventable screw-up somewhere in the planning of this event, it may come here. But as for now, things appear to be running very smoothly, despite all of us expecting the contrary.

So now the only question that remains is, do you plan on watching War MMA’s inaugural event in a few weeks?

There's no way Nick is pulling this off without someone else really running the show. I'm a fan of his but seeing his interviews and how scattered he can be I find it hard to believe that this is all his doing.

Should have got Junie Browning & War Machine on this card.

Then it would have been a lot of fun.

Event and business management, how hard could it be?

No belts. Championship fight winners get a custom bong, an ounce of chronic, and a ring girl of their choice.

Stockton is a utopian paradise compared to east Oakland.

Really? Stockton is ranked the 10th worst city in America, just behind Oakland. Not really much difference there.

I've gotten sick of the UFC political correctness anyway lately. This might be a little more fun, less lay and pray, more weed, less TRT, more middle fingers. Oh yeah
algiersheadkick504- May 29, 2013 at 8:11 pm
No doubt someone is getting jumped and middle fingers will everywhere. Can't wait

I am still saying this thing ends in some sort of crazy riot and someone gets shanked.

@Mr_Mis - He's the only name on this list I recognize right off the bat, and only for that reason.
