After raising $6,000 for Ronald McDonald House, KillEagle Promotions looks to raise more
May 15, 2019
Mixed Martial Arts fights, Indian Tacos, adult beverages, and live rock music?
Where do we sign up?
Wes KillEagle Jr's Killeagle Promotions is once again hosting "Fight For Our Future," June 1, after last year's event raised $6,000 for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle, Wash. KillEagle and his family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House when his youngest daughter, Payton (who will turn 3 on May 27th...happy birthday, Kiddo!) was going through chemotherapy following a diagnosis of liver cancer in 2017. Since then, Payton has progressed nicely and is now cancer free.
"Looking at her now, you could never tell she went through anything," KillEagle said. "She's a beast...the only way you can tell she even had anything wrong is she is really spoiled, but that's okay. She spends a lot of time picking on her older sister, but she enjoys everything, she enjoys life.
KillEagle said that there are currently five fights scheduled for the night and he is shooting for no less than 10 fights in Malta. One of the fights will pit Dodson's Phillip DeCelles against Great Falls' Aaron Skunkcap. KillEagle said both fighters will be making their MMA debuts on the night.
"Phillip is a great candidate for MMA fighting," he said. "He is excited and ready to fight."
Another fight that is confirmed for "Fight For Our Future" will be the main event which puts Sean Ibsen against Desmond Johnson. KillEagle said that Ibsen (manager of Great Falls' Gage Saunders MMA) and Johnson have been having a war of words on social media and will let their skills do the talking in Malta. KillEagle said that match will feature "special rules" in which the two fighters will "bare it all."
Following the main event, live music by Liquor Down, provided by the Mint Bar, will end the Saturday night affair at the Milk River Pavilion.
"Last year, after the fights, everyone wanted to hang out so this year, it will give everyone something to do," KillEagle said.
Indian Tacos will be for sale and served by the Poplar Indian Days Ladies and the Mint Bar will be selling adult beverages (ID required). Single tickets for the event are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and cage-side tables are available for large groups, just give KillEagle a call at 406-399-6580 for more information or with questions.
"I am hoping to at least double what we made last year," KillEagle said. "It's a great cause and one I will always hold dear to my heart."
