    Thanks fanforlife I was called away and I just came back to finish up. Jake will use this fight to help get the news out. We will have a site for MMA fighters to donate memorabilia, may have an auction by the All Star Match, but a bigger one a couple months latter.

    They also have a website set up I believe you can make donations that way as well.

    Either way that is great. I know there are some other MMA fighters out in that area who are former wrestlers and even alumni of Fullerton, this is their time to step up.

    Good for Jake and hopefully everyone out there in the area will also help support the program by attending the match.

    Random thoughts coming to mind. How many MMA fighters/fighters in general have wrestled in the All-Star:

    (off the top of my head)
    - Matt Hughes
    - Josh Koscheck
    - Brock Lesnar
    - Johnny Hendricks
    - Jake Rosholt

    Anyhow those are just a few I can think of.

    Many of the top MMA fighters have a wrestling base as Jake Shields pointed out in a recent interview, mentioned Fullerton and the need to support wrestling programs in general.
