Mountain Force MMA is one of Idaho's seasoned mixed martial arts promotions in the area, having held several successful events in the past - Pocatello, Twin Falls, Burley, Idaho Falls, & Nampa. This event at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel and Casino will be no exception. The fight card is stacked with some fighters from the Southwest & Pacific Northwest, including rising stars and established veterans.

The event will begin with an early preliminary card of Muay Thai and Kickboxing. Followed by prelims featuring debut MMA bouts.

His matchup for the 155lb MMA lightweight title is sure to be a crowd pleaser," said Mountain Force owner & promoter, Juan Pablo. "Southeast Idaho is going to remember the caliber and excitement we first brought them in 2018 at MTF 4 - Pocatello." The event will be sanctioned by United States Mixed Martial Arts Federation.
