Nick and Nate Diaz have transformed their hometown’s area code, 209, into a global phenomenon in the realm of mixed martial arts. On April 29, 2017, 209 Beatdown, a promotion focused on developing amateur talent, looks to showcase sprouting stars from Stockton and its neighboring cities in their second installment of MMA excitement at the local level.
209 Beatdown, under the watchful eyes of JR Entertainment, will direct fans within striking distance of the Stockton Memorial Civic Auditorium into the belly of the venue to digest ten, action-packed bouts you won’t soon forget.
In 209 Beatdown’s promotional debut, they doled out five championship straps, and the plan is for all the champs to return for their first title defenses. The belt owners include: Renardo Palmer at heavyweight, Esley Colson at middleweight, Frank Farmer at welterweight, Chris Burton at featherweight, and Christopher Elisarraras at bantamweight.
