Local Sports

After a rainout on Saturday, the Rumble on the River was pushed to Monday evening at SRP Park in North Augusta, for the first mix martial arts tournament held at the ball park. Seven fights in total, along with several amateurs competing for the $25,000 one-year contract with King of the Cage.

Augusta native Alexa Weichert made her MMA debut, defeating her opponent within 29 seconds of the first round, earning her the Superfight Amateur title.

“I was just ready to fight just I’ve been told I was going to get to fight twice got my hands wrapped twice warmed up twice and it didn’t happen,”said Weichert. “I’m so grateful all the glory to God I have so much support so I’m very happy.”
