DENVER, COLORADO – Long considered one of the premier mixed martial artists in the world, Mark Kerr makes his return to cagefighting on May 6, 2006 in Denver, Colorado at the sophomore effort of American Championship Fighting(sm) entitled “Exodus.” Fighting for the first
ever ACF(sm) World Heavyweight Championship, Kerr will be competing against Wes “The Project” Sims at the Denver Coliseum. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, March 17 at 10 a.m. (MST).
A celebrated collegiate wrestler, Kerr rolled through the competition in the Ultimate Fighting Championship® and was doing the same when he entered the Pride Fighting Championship. He entered the year 2000 with
an undefeated professional record looking to take home the first ever Pride Grand Prix tournament championship.
As documented by the highly acclaimed HBO documentary “The Smashing Machine,” this is when Kerr’s world started to fall apart. His personal life in turmoil and a life-threatening addiction to painkillers brought
his once promising career to a halt. Now, more than two years since his last fight and nearly nine years since he has competed on American soil, “The One, The Only, The Original” Mark Kerr returns to the cage to get his career and life back on track.
At ACF(sm) Exodus, Kerr faces Wes Sims, who himself is a veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship® and mixed martial arts promotions around the world. Sims is a protégé of mixed martial arts legend Mark “The Hammer” Coleman.
“We couldn’t be happier to host the return of Mark Kerr,” said ACF(sm) CEO Rico Vecc. “We consider it an honor to have him stepping into The Ocho(sm) to compete with Wes Sims for our first heavyweight title.”
Tickets for Kerr’s return at ACF(sm) Exodus go on sale Friday, March 17, 2006 priced at $150, $100, $75, $50, $35, and $29. Tickets for children 12 and under are available for $5 and children under 6 for
