WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Mixed martial arts returns to the Watertown municipal arena this Saturday night.

It’s being billed as Victory Cage Fighting Championships 33. Action gets underway at 6 p.m.

As always, it promises to be an action-packed night with some outstanding fighters featured.

“Saturday we’ve got a huge event, probably the biggest one we’ve done -- and that’s saying a lot,” organizer John Gibbons said. “We’ve been doing this for over a decade now.

“This is our 33rd show and we have fighters coming in from up and down the East Coast. UFC gym in Boston has some fighters that are representing. I have a couple of fighters coming in from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have the true top-ranked fighters in all of Canada fighting for titles, with a couple of New York fighters. It’s a stacked night of some great competition in store for sure. We have tickets available at the door. You can also go online at ticketleap.com and browser search ‘victory cage fighting.’”
