January 8th 2011- CageCraze.com was cageside tonight at the Shepherdsville Government Center in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, for “All American Mixed Martial Arts Presents: Meltdown.” This was the second local MMA event for the young promotion and we were treated to nine fights
During the final intermission of the night a special guest was called into the cage for an announcement. The guest was none other than Professor Mike Yanez, a pioneer of MMA in the state of Kentucky. Yanez is a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Pablo Popovitch and founded Highlander MMA in Louisville. Yanez now runs Highlander MMA out of Tampa, Florida. Several of Yanez’s former students were called into the cage, including pro fighters Nick “Chewy” Albin, Joe “The Deal” Heink, Bellator veteran BJ Ferguson, and Josh “Taz” Ferguson. After everyone was called into the cage Yanez promoted the Ferguson brothers to Brown Belt and Richard Shahbowski to Purple Belt to continue the Popovitch lineage.
