SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Mixed Martial Arts fighters will battle it out at Hunter Army Airfield Saturday night.

The competitors weighed in Friday before the big "Labor Day Brawl," meeting their opponent for the first time. The fighters also had to listen to the rules.

Dewayne Taylor, who owns a gym in Hinesville, says mixed martial arts training is everything.

"We do tons of cardio. Cardio is everything for us," said Taylor. "I refuse to let my guys get tired. I think if you have a guy with a ton of skill and no cardio, the guy with tons of cardio and a little bit of skill, he's going to win because he can push the pace to another level."

The event will feature a special guest appearance by former UFC Champion Randy "The Natural" Couture. The fighters will square off at 7 pm. You can buy tickets at the door.
