NAFC’s BMO Harris Bradley Center “Mega Brawl”: Damien Childress Vs. Matt Arnst

This Saturday night in Milwaukee, NAFC will be hosting the largest event in their history at the BMO Harris Bradley center. The top prospects from the region will be competing in both amateur and professional bouts. Damien Childress of Serrano’s Combat Academy is set to battle undefeated Lightweight Matt Arnst of Gracie Barra.

Childress is preparing to earn his first victory as a professional against an extremely tough opponent. Arnst has seven wins as a pro on the local circuit.

Both lightweights enter the fight in hopes to steal the show with a solid performance inside the cage. The BMO Harris Bradley Center will be the largest crowd either of these fighters have fought for.

Arnst is a large warrior for his weight class. His grappling skills on the canvas are slick and dangerous. A combination of strength and technique makes Arnst a top prospect to keep an eye on for the future in MMA.

The Gracie Barra fighter has a slight edge in the reach department, 72 inches, with a one-inch difference over Childress. Both gladiators stand at 5’11” and will cut weight to make the 155-pound weight class.

Childress fights out of Milwaukee at Serrano’s Combat academy. At twenty-nine years of age, and only a fight into his career, he is eager to show his supporting community a great time with an upset over Arnst. A victory over the undefeated Gracie Barra student would launch his fresh career in the right direction.

Be sure to catch two Local MMA fighters display their testaments of hard work and courage inside the cage as they prepare for war on Saturday night.
