An MMA fighter will be visiting the City of Zanesville Saturday.
Mike King, will be at The Barn Saturday, August 2 from 2PM to 4PM signing autographs. Eddie Brock, a friend of Mikes says King began his career toward mixed martial arts in the Tri-Valley school district during his junior high and high school years. This is his first time back home since he began pursuing MMA.
Brock said, "His mom and dad were born in Dresden, Tri-Valley grads and his grandparents and everybody up there. Mike and his brother also graduated from Tri-Valley. So, he's a hometown guy, and this is the first time he's actually been back since he started his pro career. So we really wanna kind of get out in the community and talk to everybody."
You will also have the opportunity to purchase a T-Shirt at tomorrow's event. All proceeds collected from the shirts will go toward a great organization.
Brock said, "So he's actually going to sell T-shirts that are Mike King T-shirts and all the proceeds from that are actually going to be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Muskingum County. Mike wanted to do that."
