X Games 2012 Rallycross Gold Medalist and Metal Mulisha Founder Brian Deegan will be the main event on Sept 17th when he takes on X-Games BMX Champion Dave Mirra at EllisMania 7.
Hot on the heels of its premiere on Fuel TV, fans are anticipating the return of EllisMania with Sirius XM host Jason Ellis on September 17, 2011. For this year's event, Ellis assembled an unforgettable line-up including Dave Mirra taking on Brian Deegan.
In preparation for their battle being held at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, both athletes are training hard. All proceeds from the fight will go to charity, with Brian fighting for The Loma Linda Children's Foundation and Dave fighting for the Meningitis Foundation of America.
Brian Deegan said, "I'm excited about the fight, I've always wanted to get in the ring and this should be a good match up. With a portion of ticket sales going to
charity, it's fighting for a cause, so it's twice as rewarding."?
"A little over a year ago I almost lost my life to meningitis. I'm truly blessed to be here today with my family," commented Mirra. "I'm fighting for anyone who has ever been affected by this terrible virus."
Jason Ellis will also be stepping into the ring for his biggest fight ever as he takes on mixed martial arts veteran Kit Cope. Fans will be entertained throughout the evening by a series of bizarre and hilarious fights that Ellis and his team have put together. "I should be receiving an X Games gold medal for pulling this off!" said Ellis.
