For this monumental 100th edition, promoter Brian Halquist and match-maker Andy Nance lined up six well-matched, exciting fights that featured some of the best prospects in the region. In the main event, the very popular Mike Gavronksi returned for his third consecutive headline bout at the venue and claimed a hard-fought seventh round TKO over the quick and crafty Maurice Louishomme in a highly entertaining fight.

He was clearly thinking knockout as he pressed vigorously, letting his hands go with shots from all angles.
