Salt Lake City, UT (USA) – Showdown Fights returns to the UCCU Center in Orem on Saturday, April 16 for a pair of highly-anticipated fights featuring a mixture of veteran fighters and highly-touted prospects.

In Showdown Fights: “Shootout” main event, former UFC and WEC fighter Tim “The Wrecking Machine” McKenzie (12-8) and Jordan “Mata Ele” Smith (15-1) will face off in welterweight action. Only one of McKenzie’s twenty professional fights have reached the judges, and he’ll be looking to rebound from a losing effort to former Ultimate Fighter star Seth Baczynski in December. Smith scored a rear-naked choke submission over Mario Sartori in his last bout and has only suffered one defeat thus far in his career.

The co-main event of the evening will see Team Alpha Male product and UFC veteran Justin Buchholz taking on hometown favorite Steven “Razor” Sharp. Buchholz looks to return to his winning ways in the Showdown Fights: “Shootout”, while Sharp will be looking to improve on his win over Brad McRae at “Showdown Fights: New Blood.”

To make our product more accessible, Showdown Fights will offer ticket prices starting at $15.00 for general admission. Upper tickets will be $25, lower seating will be $40.00, table seating will be $100.00, and ringside tables will be $150.00. Tickets are available by calling 866-788-9195 or at SMITHTIX.COM.

Diego Maradona visited Fairtex Thepprasit Stadium in Pattaya Beach this week, and took in a night of great fights. His presence was especially meaningful because it was a charity event to raise funds for medical care in the region. Maradona’s presence helped boost the profile of the event, and contributed to its complete success. Fairtex was honored to host Diego Maradona, and we hope that he will return soon.
