The folks at NXT Gen Entertainment are at it again and fight afficionados are going to be fans of what they have planned.  Coming to the Butte Civic Center on April 29 it is "Fight Kingdom" which will bring mixed martial arts back to what is to be expected to be a receptive Southwest Montana audience.

Included on the evening's fight card are three big bouts including Wes Ogan taking on Brandon Manhoff, Kelly Merrick versus Gage Morsette and Reuben Roundstone against Brian Kromer.  Tickets to the fights are available at the Butte Civic Center box office starting at $20 for upstairs tickets, $30 for lower-level bleachers and ringside tables are also available.  Tables may be purchased by calling the ticket office directly at 406-497-6400.  Ringside tables for Fight Kingdom will seat 10 and there will be a post-event celebration taking place at the Party Palace on the corner of Park and Main in Uptown Butte.

Monty Klistoff is no stranger to the local fight scene having spent years inside the ropes and the octagon as a fierce and successful competitor.  More recently, Klistoff has turned his talents to sports and event promotion where he continues to deliver knockout punches.  The past 2 summers, Klistoff and NXT Gen Entertainment have brought "Brawls and Kickstart Days" to the Butte Depot's outdoor stage area.  Brawls and Kickstart Days is a high-octane weekend of fights, music and extreme motorsports and the crowds they have drawn have been impressive to say the least.  Plans are in the works for another exciting weekend this summer as well.
