A sold-out crowd packed the Edmonds Community College gym for the 20th AX show, and with 7 of the 14 bouts going the distance, including the two 5 round title fights, the show did not finish until past 11:30 giving everyone their money's worth! Besides witnessing some great amateur MMA action, the crowd was also treated to an appearance by UFC Superstar, Rich Franklin, who's in the NW to train with the legendary Matt Hume in preparation for his upcoming fight with Travis Lutter.
