HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Mixed Martial Arts invaded the Blaisdell Arena on Friday night.

There were nearly 20 matches featuring fighters from the Mainland and here in Hawaii.

Galaxy MMA's "Bad Blood" cage fights include an interesting battle between local boy Tyson Nam and Ian McCall in the 135-pound weight class.

While Nam is more of a stand-up fighter, McCall prefers to wrestle.

"Team Quest is filled with a lot of wrestlers, so they've been teaching me a little about wrestling," Nam said.

Although McCall faces a tough challenge against Nam, he said it'll be a great fight.

"My opponent, he's good, he's dangerous in the feet, he has a solid record against good people, so it should be fun," he said.
