SBG Idaho athlete David Akers (1-2 MMA, 0-1 FCFF) makes his return to the cage Saturday, September 8th at Rumble at the Roseland 99! The event takes place at the historic Roseland Theater in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon. Akers has been hard at work since his last appearance at Rumble 96 in January, improving in all areas of the fight as well as his strength and athleticism. Akers has been a huge part of the fight training for many of our athletes, and we are excited to watch him showcase his abilities.
With the improvements made over the last 8 months, Akers is primed to return to his winning ways as he takes on Justin Branson (1-0 MMA, 1-0 FCFF) in an amateur straw weight (115 lb) bout. Akers joins SBG Portland Tribe Members Peter Lysenko, and Max Garrison, who are both competing for title belts in the night’s event. Tickets are available at http://cascadetickets.com/event/?performer_id=8449762. Be sure to send your fighter words of encouragement when you see him in classes and we look forward watching him bring home the victory next month!
