Active-Duty U.S. Marine Dylan Beever makes his MMA debut at Art of War Cage Fighting 23 on April 2nd

Art of War Cage Fighting is smashing their way into the spotlight of Pennsylvania MMA with stacked fight cards on back-to-back nights.  AOW President, Mike Bickings deems this All-Star Weekend on April 1st and 2nd and is their 22nd and 23rd shows.  This will be the second time they have hosted consecutive shows on consecutive days as back in February of 2019, AOW 10 and 11 took place.

The All-Star Weekend will be hosted at the hottest spot in Philly…Live Casino and Hotel, who just recently celebrated their first-year anniversary and will welcome their first mixed martial arts events to their patrons.  Bickings, and matchmaker Jillian Peterson have worked feverishly and put together some amazing fights.  On the first night, April 1st, heavyweight Patrick “the Brick” Brady will stroll to the cage and take on Cesar Guiterrez in the main event.

Tim Sylvester vs Shawn Steffanelli and Trent Stump vs Will Dill also headline the professional portion of the card on the first night.

At AOW 23 on Saturday night, Matt Turnbull and his high energy style cap the night off in the main event vs Federico Vento IV and there will also be three championship belts on the line.

MyMMANews will be all over these two cards as I will be on commentary with “Korean Thunder” Ryan Kim Cafaro and Eugene “the Suitcase Kid” Aubry.  The legend himself, Eric Kowal, will be in attendance bringing live results and mega-star photographer William McKee will be shooting tons of amazing photos.

In a featured bout on Saturday night, Dylan Beever will make his MMA debut.  Beever was successful in a kickboxing bout for USKA Fight Sports several months back, but he will stroll to the cage for the first time ever where he will face Bilal Khan.  Khan hasn’t had much success winning fights at 1-5, but he has been training for a long time and works diligently to keep getting better.

Beever is currently an active-duty U.S. Marine and is confident that his military time has helped him prepare for his combat sports training.

He met his head coach, Jeff Cressman about three years ago and they have formed a terrific relationship between student and mentor.  Beever is confident that he will come away with a win in his first real fight.  He tells MyMMANews about this fight camp…

“We see it going our way. I have all the tools in the toolbox to get it done and we are working to have the right approach.  As far as my first real fight camp and cutting weight again…It f**king sucks (laughs).  But I wouldn’t have it any other way.  The ultimate goal is to keep working one fight at a time but there is no doubt that my goal is to eventually become a professional fighter.”

You can check out our full interview on the link above.  Beever is a native of Washington state and expects many of his family and friends to be watching on the pay per view available on the Starfund App.  You can also stay right here at MyMMANews for round by round live results.  Wew do regional MMA like nobody else and it’s not even close.
