It was a hot day, but even the heat couldn’t keep the fans or the fighters from coming out to enjoy a great show at the Tachi Palace as the fighters battled before a packed crowd. The fighters donated themselves to fight for Ryan ‘The Hitman’ Bennett’s family in a show generously put on by World Extreme Cagefighting.
We even got to see Wes Sims do a drop kick; which was a move that Ryan Bennett always wanted to see Wes do in one of his fights and Wes vowed to do it in this show and did. We also got to see Steibling get his first win in two years after a battle against Jason Guida (ex-Strike Force champion Clayton Guida’s brother).
Ryan’s wife, Tonya; parents; and brothers and sisters were in attendance and enjoyed the show that the fighters put on for Ryan.
A big thank you has to go out to all of the fighters that participated, the WEC and their staff that all donated their time and efforts, the wonderful people at Tachi Palace that donated the venue, and HDNet for broadcasting the show. With all of the tremendous efforts of so many caring people, the Hitman show should be a very successful way to help out Tonya and the kids.
