03/18/2013 9:08 AM -

 

The promoters of the upcoming Rock’s Extreme MMA II are offering MMA fans an opportunity to support their favorite professional MMA fighters and give back to the Corpus Christi community. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Corpus Christi Parks and Recreation to go towards youth programs.

ABG Amateur Association & Extreme Combat Productions presents Rock’s Extreme MMA II on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 7:00pm at American Bank Center Convention Center. Featured fights included the 155 LB Rock’s Extreme Championship Fight, a co-main event and 8 additional bouts.

“We are so excited that we have been selected to receive funds from the Rock’s Extreme MMA II event,” said Becky Perrin, Superintendent of Program Services. “We are working hard to develop youth programs associated with planting and harvesting vegetables, nutritious snacks and meals, and Monarch gardens. We will utilize the donation to support these efforts for the youth that attend our recreation centers.”

This will be the second donation to the local community from ABG & Extreme Combat. From the first Rock’s Extreme MMA event that featured amateur fighters, $2,000.00 was donated to the Texas Peace Officers Memorial Fund.

“We are grateful to God and All of South Texas for supporting the sport of MMA and giving our local fighters an opportunity to showcase their talent in their hometown,” said Rock Balboa of Extreme Combat Production. “It’s a privilege for us to be able to share that support with the city’s parks and rec and help create positive opportunities for local youth.”
