Excitement revved to full tilt, beautiful women strutted around in circles with tops as painted on as their smiles, and pockets of hardened individuals milled about in teams of similarly colored patches at the Dixon Fairgrounds, but this only marked the doors of Renegade Rendezvous’ 13th Annual event opening to the public.
MMA was a welcomed addition to the infamous biker show in Dixon, California. Soon after the opening bell sounded, the decibels of the crowd around the outdoor cage muted the rumbling roar of those showcasing their engine’s horsepower. As MMA math would have it, the twelve amateur bouts scheduled were reduced to eight due to poor excuses, which made any last-minute adjustments for the matchmaker, Mike MacNeill, an impossible mission.
