Looking for a fight? Well, take off those earrings, because UCF is looking to brawl come Nov. 21.

For the first time ever, The Venue on campus is set to host a cage fighting event put on by Breakthrough MMA.

The Florida-based mixed martial arts group will host 25 fights, which it says will make for an "all day, all night" event, according to the event's Facebook page.

Doors will open for the event at 6 p.m. and the fights will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets range in price from $35 for general admission to $75 for front-row seats. UCF students have a special price of $20 with a student ID.

"Stock up on popcorn and Red Bull because you're going to get your money's worth on this one!" the event's Facebook page states. "We're hitting Orlando hard and going to blow the roof off of the UCF Arena."

The event will include 18 "ground and pound" fights and four to five "title fights." This will be the 14th annual event for the MMA group, and is slated to be the organization's biggest yet.

The Venue is located just behind the CFE Arena on campus. Tickets are available at the CFE Arena box office or through Ticketmaster.
