Carey Vanier to Fight at Target Center April 28


MMA Xtreme 33 presented by Taco Bell is coming to the Target Center on April 28th and The Cellar’s Carey Vanier will be facing undefeated prospect, Jordon Larson. Tickets are on sale now at The Cellar or TicketMaster.com and start at just $32. This is one of the most stacked cards in Minnesota MMA history.

Carey started training at The Cellar earlier this year and is also helping to build our ever growing MMA team. This will be his first fight in over a year, but he’s exciting to display his new and refined skills.

From http://www.mnmmanews.com:

Tickets for CFX 33: Minnesota vs. Japan, which is April 28, are on sale now through ticketmaster.com and at the Target Center box office. Tickets also are available through participating fighters or by entering their “fighter code” at ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $30 and go up from there.

The most significant addition to the card today was Minnesota native Carey Vanier, who is fighting outside of Bellator for the first time since 2009.

Vanier (8-3) was part of Bellator’s first 155-pound tournament. The former collegiate wrestling All-American defeated Joe Duarte in the opening round of the tournament at Bellator 13, before falling to Toby Imada in the semifinals during Bellator 17 (May 2010).

Vanier, who trained extensively with Greg Jackson in New Mexico, has not fought since March of 2011, when he suffered a loss to Lloyd Woodard at Bellator 37.

Vanier is set to return to action against prospect Jordan Larson, who fights out of South Dakota. He’s compiled a 3-0 record as a pro and also was unbeaten as an amateur.

“Jordan Larson is a very tough kid, and he jumped at the chance to fight a veteran like Carey,” Rydell said. “He’s a scrapper, a well-rounded fighter. He doesn’t have the wrestling like Carey, but he’s a tough, young kid who’s coming here to pull off the upset.

“And we were thrilled to be able to add a Bellator veteran like Carey as he tries to work his way back to the big-time. Carey’s still a young guy with lots of potential.”
