YAKIMA, Wash. - Professional mixed martial arts is coming to Yakima.  Brady Nelson, the majority owner of the Spokane Shock arena football team, announced he's bringing Arena Rumble II to the Yakima Sundome on Nov. 28.

The announcement was carried live on SWX TV and SWXRightNow.com.  Arena Rumble I took place in September at the Spokane Arena and was Nelson's first experiment in professional fighting.

The upcoming event at the Sundome features a lightweight bout between Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm (13-0) and Alonzo "Zo Diddy" Martinez (24-13-1). 

Beerbohm, 5-10 155, has quickly climbed the ranks of MMA and has become a rising star in the sport with an undefeated record. In his last match-up, at Arena Rumble I, Beerbohm kept his perfect record intact with a first-round technical knockout of his opponent Josh Martin. 

Martinez, 5-10 155, earned the 24th victory of his professional career with a unanimous decision over Ryan Williams at AMMA 4 in September 2009. Over half of Martinez's victories (13) have come by virtue of submission, while seven were earned by technical knockout. 

Tickets to the event go on sale through TicketsWest tomorrow, Oct. 21, with prices starting at $50.
