Mixed martial arts at the River Center

Looking for something to do this weekend? The United States Association of Mixed Martial Arts (USA-MMA) and Beat2Sleep will be presenting Stacked 2, a live mixed martial arts event at the Baton Rouge River Center on Saturday, June 16.

The main fight card will feature three title bouts.

Dustin Johnson vs. Josh Davila, 155 pound pro Strike championship

Stand-up artists Dustin Johnson and Josh Davila will go to war for an all-strike match in the lightweight division. USA-MMA has developed an all-strike division for those who are talented in stand up martial arts. This means that no submissions will be allowed in this fight.

Johnson fights out of LA Boxing of Baton Rouge and is also the Muay Thai coach there. Davila’s kickboxing is on point and fierce. If you are looking to see a good toe-to-toe match, this is the fight to watch.

Thomas Webb vs. Gilbert Jimenez, 155 pound pro MMA championship

The LA Boxing team has quite a few stars on this card. Thomas Webb (4-0), LA Boxing’s Strength and Conditioning coach, is fighting against Gilbert Jimenez (6-6) for the 155 pound MMA championship title.

“This is the first time I have been 155 pounds since I was in the sixth grade,” said Webb, who previously fought in higher weight classes. “This is going to be a good show. LA Boxing will be bringing it to the cage. We have all worked so hard to get ready for these fights. Be prepared to be entertained this Saturday night.”

Mike Guidry vs. Johnathan Mackles, 125 pound pro MMA championship

Mike Guidry (4-0) fighting out of Gladiators Academy of Lafayette will be fighting Jonathan Mackles (10-2) of Gold Dragon MMA in Slidell for the 125 pound MMA championship title. Guidry won his last fight by TKO and remains on a winning streak. Mackles is known for his fierce submissions and is rising to the top in his division. With so much on the line, this should be an incredible fight.
