Desert Brawl 38 was a great fight card. Many local fighters were on the card and there was bout after bout of non-stop action. Several fights went back and forth, but only one fight went the distance, which made for a very entertaining night.
As many knockouts as there were, there were even more submissions, proving that the sport has grown past the stereotype of mindless violence and brutality.
Congratulations to all the fighters who put on a great show at Desert Brawl 38: Uprising.
