Maybe its not the Coliseum in Rome, or even the Forum across the parking lot but there is something epic about the Hollywood Park Race way and Casino. In its hey day the venue was a crown jewel of the elite, and the regular stomping grounds of the famed ‘Rat Pack’. The halls echo with memories, but what haunts me is the specter of whats to come. The last race went off a little over a year ago, however the venue has stayed active in many ways.
For years the Casino and Racetrack have been the home base of Spar Star MMA. Like the Coliseum in Rome, gladiators made their bones here. Like the Forum across the street, Champions were made here! Soon it will all be just a memory. Slowly piece by piece, the buildings add to the memories as they disappear, but until then the fists will fly.
March 28th will be our second to last show at this venue. If you have never been to a Spar Star Event, ask someone who has and you will find out quickly what you are missing. With only to shows left, the matchmaker and promoter are planning to go out with bang, so make sure you get tickets.
The Saturday show will feature the return of Spar Star MMA 135lbs Champion Farren Romero. Romero will put her belt on the line against fellow undefeated prospect Paola Ramirez. The co main event is equally exciting featuring Spar Star fan favorites Leo Imai and Jonell Kimbrough who will clash in a 145 lbs battle. Also featured on the main card: Mark Perez is scheduled to take on the always entertaining Ronnie Mugica, and Cody Halleman will square off with Antonio Vazquez.
