SparStar Saturday Night Fights Recap & Photos

This past weekend, Spar Star Promotions put on Saturday Night Fights at the Hollywood Park Casino. While the sport of MMA might seem brutal to some, keep in mind that the athletes safety is of the utmost importance.  Saturday Night Fights got off to late start because of the paramedics missing some vital equipment.  But once they got squared away, the fight action was highly exciting with KO's, submissions and more action that electrified the crowd in attendance.  Once again, Tony Padilla and SparStar promotions did a great job putting together great fights.
