Five fighters from American Top Team-Beaumont will travel to Humble on Friday to compete in Cage Combat 9 Mixed Martial Arts at the Humble Civic Center. The first of 14 amateur fights are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Just a few tickets remain, and they can be purchased online at garciapromotions.com. For those who cannot make the trip, the fights will be streamed live online, and free of charge, on the Facebook page of The Cagesiders.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
