Caged Heat


Do you love to watch grown men pound each other into hamburger meat but find boxing as boring as ballroom dancing and professional wrestling to be little more than soap operas for 13-year-old boys? Then head over to the Florida State Fairgrounds this Friday night and watch the blood droplets fly at World Fighting Championships V: Cage Wars. The fight card brings some of the world's top mixed-martial-arts fighters to the Bay area, where they will climb into cages and skillfully beat each other senseless for the pleasure of a captivated audience. Of special note to Tampa Bay football fans: Former Bucs defensive tackle Marcus Jones makes his mixed-martial-arts debut during the evening's fighting festivities. Fri., Oct. 26, 8 p.m., Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds, 4800 U.S. 301 N., Tampa, $25-$100, 813-622-7275.
