  • Friday Night Fights

    • It's Team Gracie vs. Team Hammerhouse Friday, March 3, 2006. You can call it what you want. Some people have suggested it's the "Buckeyes Battle Brazil." Others have suggested it's kind of a northern hemisphere vs. southern hemisphere kind of thing. Some have even suggested its the perfect opportunity to watch Mark Coleman's team battle a Gracie in an American venue. It really doesn't matter. Think this: Gracies, Team Hammerhouse, Nationwide Arena , celebrities, huge crowd, lots of noise and an extreme evening. Did I mention Arnold!?
