I need to do a story on Chris Tuchscherer. He graduated Bowman High School in the early 90s and is one of the upper Midwest’s best MMA fighters. It doesn’t hurt when you live in Fargo and have a chance to train with UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, who now lives in Alexandria, Minn. Tuchscherer even had Lesnar in his corner for the fight in the video below.
If you go to about the 45-second mark of this video, you can see the highlights from Tuchscherer’s match against Branden Lee Hinkle for the Sovereign Nations Mixed Martial Arts (SNMMA) championship during Beatdown 4 on March 21 at Four Bears Casino in New Town. This spot aired on HDNet’s Inside MMA show, a nationally televised program.
On an additional note, I’m sure some of you have seen the signs going up around Dickinson advertising another MMA event in town. According to the Dickinson city’s Web site, Badlands Beatdown 2 will be on Saturday, May 9 at the Dickinson Recreation Center.
I can’t tell you for sure that I’ll be covering the event, but I’m going to dang sure going to try.
