Matt “White Chocolate” Turnbull earns his first main event at AOW 20

Interview with Matt Turnbull above

Art of War Cage Fighting has been hosting mixed martial arts events  in Pennsylvania since 2017.  Mike and Debb Bickings have done a wonderful job of providing a forum for fighters to showcase their skills as well as making sure that the fans enjoy themselves.   Mike puts more time and energy into his fighters as anyone that I’ve come across in my 15+ years covering the sport.

Bickings and his team puts that energy and creative mind back to work for AOW 20 on Mischief Night on October 30th at The Sportsplex in Feasterville, PA.  The fight card put together by matchmaker Jillian Peterson looks like an interesting and exciting night.

In the main event, Matt “White Chocolate” Turnbull goes to battle with Eddie “the Panamaniac” Alvarez in a match-up that will definitely have the fans out of their seats.  In the co-main event, Duane “Crispy” Shields makes his professional debut after three consecutive wins in the amateur ranks and 7 total contests.  It’s a Philly vs Philly tussle as he welcomes Vinny Oristaglio (0-1) to the cage.

MyMMANews will be on hand for live results and I will be calling the action from cage-side alongside Eugene “the Suitcase Kid” Aubry.  Fight week has arrived and we will be bringing you some pre-fight interviews from some of the fighters scheduled to go to work.

I stopped in Northeast Philadelphia at Martinez BJJ to grab a few laughs and interviews as they have multiple fighters making the walk at AOW 20.  The final one will be Matt Turnbull, who gets his first main event call. Turnbull challenges another PA stalwart in Eddie “the Panamaniac” Alvarez.  Matt and I sat down to talk about his camp and his fight.  He says…

“Eddie is fast, but look back there on the mats and many of my teammates are just as fast.  I don’t care who I am in the cage with, it’s not as tough as coming in here and training with the best team in the world. The support is so incredible in here not just with being on the mats, but off of the mats as well with sponsorships and anything else I need.”

Please check out our interview on the link above.

I know the support he speaks of will be loud and raucous on the 30th.  You can get the round-by-round results right here as well as some more pre-fight interviews coming to you soon.
