The perils of fighting for your rent money are legion scar tissue, shattered bones, blood loss but none is worse than defeat. Even though you might still score a paycheck, theres no glory in getting dragged back home, unconscious and beaten, after a brutal third-round KO. Witness life in a cage this Thursday when the prizefighters hit Hard Rock Live for Bellator Fighting Championships XXIV. The local main event is set to star Yves Edwards and Miami boy Luis Baboon Palomino in a 155-pound showdown. Also on the card: a middleweight blood match between current champ Hector Lombard and ex-NFL pro Herbert Whisper Goodman; two girlfights Megumi Fujii vs. Angela Magana and Lynn Lights Out Alvarez vs. Jessica Aguilar; plus the opener in Bellators Season 3 heavyweight tournament pitting UFC vet Eddie Sanchez against Brit beast Neil Goliath Grove.
