ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Hollywood found it to be a good backdrop. Jackson’s MMA will see just how good a backdrop when they put a fight card in the rail yards downtown May 10. The old rail yards at first and hazeldine in Albuquerque will host the Jackson’s MMA Series card called Proteges’. It is the first of two cards set for the mechanic’s shop at The Yards.
A thousand seats will be available. Jackson’s MMA Series general manager Ricky Kottenstette said, “I’ve always wanted to do fights downtown and when I heard the city was opening this up it made since for us to do a night down here for the community and kind of open up the space.” Ricky Esquibel will face Chris Brewer
