I photographed another RMFC event in Vernal, hosted by MMA fighter, Blake Sprouse and his wife–and one of my longtime best friends–Brooke. Along with operating a successful insurance agency (Sprouse Insurance) they host these RMFC fights a few times a year. This time I was stationed on the ladder above the rink for a few of the fights and, boy, there’s nothing like being so close to the action you risk getting sweat & blood splattered on you. Congratulations to fight champion Salvador Sanchez who defeated Luke Stradinger in the first round. (See remaining results below.)
