Superior Combative Championships puts on MMA event to combat human trafficking


GALVESTON, TX – The Superior Combative Championships (SCC) returned to the Galveston Island Convention Center for another thrilling night of amateur MMA fights this weekend. The event, SCC IX held on Friday, November 21 featured 10 fights in total, including two title bouts in the lightweight and flyweight divisions. In addition, the event also benefited Project 427, a charity alliance working against human trafficking in the Houston-Bay area. A portion of the proceeds from the event went directly to that charity, which is something SCC makes a consistent point of doing with every event.

Highlights from the event were numerous, including the closely-fought title fight between David “Machine Gun” Kelly and Gold Team’s Frank Rodriguez. SCC president Stephen Lawhorn also stepped into the cage as a fighter for the first, and likely the last, time at this event, all while being over 40 years old.

Check out the complete videos of the SCC 9 fights below.
