Las Vegas native Norman Martinez is scheduled to compete in “Rage In The Cage,” a mixed martial arts card slated for August 15 at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo.
Martinez, who fights at 155 pounds, will represent New Mexico against Arizona’s Eddie Jacobs.
The card, promoted the Phoenix-based Rage In The Cage MMA organization, features a number of Arizona vs. New Mexico matchups for bragging rights. New Mexico won last year’s competition.
First bout is set for 7:30 p.m. August 15, with doors at Santa Ana’s Bosque Event Center opening at 6:30. Tickets, ranging from $30 to $55, are available at the casino box office and online, www.starticketsplus.com.
