I went to Akron, OH over the weekend to photograph the UMMAXX 7: Out of the Cage event. Below are the results and photos if anyone wants to check them out.

While half the fighters were from Ohio, the event drew competitors from all over the US including NJ, NY, NC, IL, KY, FL, KS, AZ, and MS.

For those of you who have been watching this season of TUF, Rob Browning (Junie's brother) made his professional debut at UMMAXX 7 and was victorious by 1st round submission (armbar). Jason Dent, the fighter who beat Rob to get into the house, was also in attendance, but as a coach and not a fighter.
