Convicted Artist is proud to announce that several Lion’s Den Elite fighters, including Ken Shamrock himself, will be participating in the “Battle of Orange County” fundraising event taking place on December 13th at the No Limits Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness Center in Irvine, California. This “First of its Kind” Extreme Sports & Artists Charity Event will benefit the Life Rolls on Foundation, an organization that supports and benefits young people with spinal cord injuries. The Life Rolls on Foundation’s mission is to ensure that spinal cord injury patients are able to live an active life.

According to Steven Arredondo of ConvictedArtist.com, “This is definitely going to be the fundraising event of the year! High profile athletes involved in Boxing, MMA, Surfing, Skating, and Motocross are coming together for this very worthy cause. All proceeds from this event will go to the Life Rolls on Foundation. We received a tremendous response from elite athletes across the U.S willing to participate. Some athletes will be on hand to do meet and greet with the fans, while others, such as the Lion’s Den fighters, will be competing in “The Battle of Orange County” MMA fight event, where some of the top MMA schools in the nation will compete in submission wrestling super fights.”

The main event in The Battle for Orange County features Lion’s Den Elite Team fighter and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Denis Gomes who will go head to head with five-time world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champion Givanildo “The Arm Collector” Santana of No Limits MMA. The co-main event features Lion’s Den Elite fighter and UFC Veteran Mike Van Arsdale who will battle the currently undefeated KOTC veteran Chad Davis.

MMA Legend and UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock will be on hand for meet and greets along with former WBC Intercontinental heavyweight title holder Ross Puritty, former two-time Heavyweight Champion and cast member of “Rocky V” Tommy Morrison, LRO model Briana Walker, free-style motocross rider Ronnie Faisst, sports commentator and ring announcer “Big Dog” Benny Henderson Jr., Arizona Cardinals player and Lion’s Den Scottsdale partner Scott Peters and many other high profile athletes and celebrities. All of these athletes have joined together to help raise money for young people affected by spinal cord injuries.

There will be live music and a variety of other great entertainment acts for attendees to enjoy throughout the day leading up to the main “Battle of Orange County” fight event, including skateboard competitions featuring well known, top skateboarders, and a very impressive silent auction.
