The final card is set for Summer Heat 2, and some familiar names from the four - state region will be entering the cage along with some fresh faces.
Promoter Dave Rine has shown in past events how to produce quality fights by getting quality match - ups.
“Most of the time you try to find the strengths of each fighter and match them up,” he said. “If someone has a wrestler, then I have to find a wrestler, too.”
For Rine, the challenge is getting a good read on a coach’s evaluation.
“One coach may say, ‘This guy is an ok wrestler,’ and someplace else they would say, ‘He is a great wrestler,’” Rine said. “We don’t always see it the same. At the end of the fight, some will think a fighter has great jujitsu, and I think it is ok. The guy he fought might even think he was great. You have to check them out and get coaches to say what they are actually good at so it will be a good fight.”
Since the excitement level has been high at recent events, and many fights have gone the distance, Rine is hoping that he has produced another set of quality match - ups.
“When the fights go the distance, it is very entertaining. Hopefully we will se a lot of that this time.”
Tickets are $20 in advance at Rine’s American Freestyle Karate, and $30 at the door.
