Yamma Pit Fighting Announces Debut Event

Yamma Pit Fighting distributed a press release earlier this week announcing the complete card for their for their debut event which is set to take place in Atlantic City on April 11 at the Trump Taj Mahal.

The show will include an eight man heavyweight tournament as well as two super-fights, one of which pits Gary Goodridge against Eric “Butterbean” Esch. The other super-fight, which has been rumored since earlier this month and now confirmed for the event, will be UFC legend Don Frye vs. long-time MMA veteran Oleg Taktarov.

While Yamma appears to be bringing back some recognizable albeit over the hill names for their big show, the fighters announced to take place in the eight man tournament fall significantly further from the radar. The fighters slated to participate in the tournament are:

  • Rex Richards (4-1)
  • Marcelo Periera (5-0)
  • Chris Tuscherer (11-0)
  • Sherman Pendergarst (10-8)
  • Travis Wiuff (47-11)
  • Alexey Oleynik (4-3)
  • Tony Sylvester (10-1)
  • George Bush (5-0)
