Local fighters dominate CageRaiser 2

Angelo Archuleta, left, will be one of 10 fighters from Grand Junction competing in this weekend’s CageRaiser 2 MMA event.

Alex Trottier knows it’s important to put on a good show.

That’s why for Saturday’s Cage Raiser 2 at Grand Junction Harley Davidson, Trottier is treating fight fans to an entertaining card.

CageRaiser 2 features 12 total fights — nine amateur and three professional. Of the 24 fighters on the card, 10 are from Grand Junction, and 20 are from Colorado.

“People want to come see local fighters,” Trottier said. “It’s a good card and every fighter is worth seeing.”

All the proceeds from the fights will benefit Impact Boxing, a nonprofit organization. Many of the fighters in Saturday’s event train out of Impact Boxing, but they are only a sliver of the 150 fighters who use the gym.
