The FREESTYLE COMBAT CHALLENGE XIV returns to Racine, Wisconsin on Saturday, March 6th withanother card of Mixed Martial Arts. An exciting AFC 135 LB Title match between Wisconsin's Ryan Ackerman and Canada's Ryan Diaz is scheduled as the main event. 'Our 135 lb title is vacant, and this is a chance to get two of the very top guys at that weight together to decide the title.' states matchmkaer Miguel Iturrate. Ryan Ackerman has fought all over the world at this point, and he has developed into a force at 135 and 145 lbs. Ackerman will have a home field advantage, but in Ryan Diaz he gets a 135 lber who also fought his whole career against much bigger guys.

The rest of the card features the Wisconisn area's top fighters, as local martial arts schools from Wisconsin such as Adrian Serrano's JJ and Dave Strasser's Feestyle Academy are heavily represented on the card. Other Martial Arts schools that are competing in Racine and are learning to call it home include American TOP TEAM, Animal House and Duneland Vale Tudo.

The preliminary card appears below.
