October 24th at MetraPark it's the return of Backflips and Beatdowns. MMA Fighters battle it out in the cage while insane motorcycle stunts are happening right over their heads. That sounds like something a couple of guys would dream up around a sports bar table in a conversation that starts with "You know what would be bad ass?" But it's not just a dream. This is actually happening.

This will be my first time attending one of these events and it's a great night to check it out. In addition to all of the entertainment, they'll also be raising money for Kipton Boeckel, the little boy who was badly burned in a house fire earlier this year. The latest reports I have seen is that Kipton is doing much better, largely in part to the generosity of people in Billings helping with the family's medical costs.

If you haven't seen any of the previous Backflips and Beatdowns, check out the video above. I'm sure it's not the same as being there, but it will give you a peek at the awesomeness happening in just over a week.
