MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - There was frustration nearly five months ago when a cage fighting event in Muskegon was shut down because of overcrowding.
That night, the promoter said he would put on a free show for everyone who missed the matches. Tonight, he says he will keep that promise.
There are signs around Muskegon that fight promoter Cody Colson is planning a big comeback after he sold too many tickets, leading to crowd issues and the abrupt end to the mixed martial arts event he organized in March.
"Everything is going to be legit," Colson told WZZM's Jon Mills Friday. "Set in stone, posters are out, tickets are out, everything is in the works...I am just making everything right...I could have handled it better, but I got off Facebook and disappeared for a month."
Colson says he's learned some valuable lessons and wants this event to square up with fighters and disappointed spectators.
