Clash of the Titans 

Each year, mixed martial arts builds a larger national following of fans who appreciate the sport’s blend of brute force and martial skill. MMA junkies got a kick out of seeing Strike Force fighters on prime-time TV in October, and the whole sport is rallying around the maligned health of its marquee fighter, Brock Lesnar. Kansas City fans can get a taste of ultimate fighting tonight at Fight Night 2: Titan Combat Sports Championship at Memorial Hall (600 North Seventh Street in KCK, 913-549-4853). “Titan Fighting is an opportunity for Kansas City and Midwest fighters to come in and get some competitive experience and hopefully move up to bigger stages,” says Sam Caplan, a matchmaker for the event. “Memorial Hall is a great fight venue — the sight lines were designed for combat sports.” Tickets range from $25 to $150 to catch roughly a dozen matches headlined by WEC fighter James Krause and 16-2 prospect Eric Marriott.
