(John Alessio looks at his broke arm after choking out Pete Spratt)
8,962 fans filed into the Thomas and Mack Center Friday night to witness “A Night of Combat”. The free night of fights feature Boxing and MMA was the brainchild of UNLV’s Daren Libonati and Banner Promotions’ Art Pelullo. Vegas fight fans were the beneficiaries of gratis tickets and priceless action. Both halves of the card featured tremendous action with warriors that gave their all and laid everything on the line.
The live event was tremendous. The Thomas and Mack Center put on awesome video packages, the Nellis Air Force Honor Guard presented the colors while an instrumental version of the Star Spangled Banner played and the packed house sang the verses and fans enjoyed themselves both in their seats and at the top notch bars and restaurants in the Thomas and Mack.
Be sure to get there in person the next time UNLV and Banner Promotions team up for an event.
