Battlefield Fight League October 15 Review



Congratulations to Dustin Dickeson. He set his sights on establishing a mixed martial arts (MMA) club for local youth a few years back and his efforts have paid off with a knock out brand new training facility in Sechelt, BC and two local youths he trains heading for a cage match in Richmond.

Dustin tells me the 2 guys have trained real hard for the match on October 15, 2010 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond, BC for the Battle Field Fight League.

"It's a huge step to get in the cage in front of thousands of people."

Battlefield Fight League calls the event card "some of the most interesting and stylistically sound match ups."

Jordan and Rick will be representing Team Phoenix Rising, the local Sunshine Coast club in Sechelt, which is part of the larger Team Denarius Club.

Team Denarius members take part in events all over and welcome sponsors looking to get their brand out there and at the same time help some fighters achieve their goals.

One such sponsorship of our local Sunshine Club comes from Darkhorse Athletics in Molly's Lane in Gibsons, British Columbia, who sells their fighter brand sports wear out of the new training facility in Sechelt. A good match!

Dustin got the MMA started on the coast to give youth an outlet and training facility where strict rules, codes of conduct and fair play are adhered to. If you are interested in getting involved, want to sponsor, or want more information you can contact him at 604-741-5700.

Dustin Dickeson had his first pro fight 4 years ago and has had over 8 fights in the cage/ring weather Pro MMA to kick boxing. He has a Pro Fighters License from the Edmonton boxing and wrestling commission.

The Sechelt club also has the North West Canadian Heavy Weight champ Marcus Hicks and many other pro fighters teaching.

Martial arts has been Dustin's life for almost 5 years, he says "we eat, sleep and breath the sport we love."

The Phoenix Rising training facility teach a combination of all martial arts, and alot of body control, submissions, wrestling, boxing, kick boxing, basic weight training, and cardio. They try to offer a bit of everything and put it all together at whatever level people are at adds Dustin.

Mixed Martial Arts or MMA are also known as No Holds Barred (NHB), Cage Fighting, Ultimate Fighting and rivals boxing and professional wrestling according to wikipedia.

The Battlefield Cage Match with Jordan and Rick will be aired a few weeks after the event on the market leader in mixed martial arts news and information from a Canadian perspective.
