We are just a month away before the next Turf Wars event at Turfway Park and the event is looking solid with several big match ups already booked. This will be the 16th event for the promotion that has been growing in leaps and bounds over the last couple of years.
Cody Gabelman (1-0) will look to score his second professional win as he meets James Gray (2-0). Gabelman made his professional debut back in January. Joe Pegg (6-2) will return for the first time since September to face an always tough Josh Killion (9-5) in Florence. Every win for Pegg has come by way of finish in the first round. He has that one touch knockout power. Killion has notched back to back wins but hasn’t fought since September either.
The first event of 2014 is here and Hardrock MMA 60 has shaped up to be one of their best events to date. The professional side of the card is stacked and tonight we also have four amateur title fights. All of the action is taking place at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center here in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.
The main event features undefeated Isiah Ferguson as he takes on Brian Stevens. The last time we saw Stevens step inside the cage he pulled off the upset against former TUF alum Junie Browning. He once again looks for the upset when he stands across from Ferguson.

I’ve known Brandon Higdon for three year and have covered more than 20 of his events but I’ve never really heard him speak as highly of a fight card as he has as tomorrow’s fight card. He’s never been one to say that some scraps may be duds but he’s told me on more than one occassion that this is the best fight card he’s ever put together.
Tonight most of the fighters took to the scale with the rest reporting tomorrow ahead of Hardrock MMA 60. Matt Egner came in off the mark in his fight against BJ Ferguson. It was a costly mistake as he had to give up 30% of his purse. Ouch. The main event is a go as favorite Ron Sparks came in a pound under the allowed 265 mark for his fight against Josh Walker.
Here are the weigh in results for Hardrock MMA 60.
It has been one of the most talked about events in recent memory for Hardrock MMA. There is good reason for the buzz. The fight card has been put together with some of the most competitive fights and rising stars throughout the state. The 2014 campaign kicks off tomorrow night in Shepherdsville for Hardrock MMA 60. The loaded line-up features Bellator veteran Ron Sparks returning home for the first time since 2010. Undefeated Nathan Maness will look to keep a massive winning streak intact when he fights fellow unbeaten Brandon Sandefur. Add in to the mix that two of the three Ferguson brothers are on the card and the professional side is reason enough to show up.
The professional fights are good but there are some amateur fights that might steal the show. Adam Fritz will defend his bantamweight title against undefeated Jeff Mack in a fight that will determine the number one bantamweight possibly in the midwest but definitely in Kentucky. Knockout artist Kendale Young is back at it as he looks to put back to back wins together against the always exciting Cameron Cain. Team AFS / 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu’s David Crowe will defend his featherweight title against Alliance MMA’s Kris Evans. Crowe’s teammate Emily Bartee will make her amateur debut against Amy Holland as well.
A pair of title fights have been booked for the upcoming Hardrock MMA 60 event that takes place at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center in Shepherdsville. Two members of Team G-Force will challenge for titles as AFS Academy/10th Planet Richmond’s Adam Fritz will make his first bantamweight title defense.
Jeff Mack has been out of action following an injury. He has won his first seven fights but hasn’t fought since April 2012. Mack has picked up wins in five separate promotions. Fritz (5-2)went 2-0 in 2013 and captured the Hardrock MMA and Bluegrass Brawl titles with wins over Hussein Hmood and Bobby Rudder.
