Epic Fight Night 1 Rob Kimmons vs. Tyler Stinson Kansas City, MO, KCI EXPO Center. June 29th, 2013.

UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator Veterans along with rising stars will be fighting at the first ever EPIC FIGHT NIGHT.

KCMMA.com presents Epic Fight Night 1. IN THE MAIN EVENT, Kansas City's 7x UFC Veteran Rob "The Rosedale Reaper" Kimmons faces off against Kansas City's Strikeforce Vet Tyler "The Evolution" Stinson. Both are vying for their opportunity for their shot at the UFC.

Rob Kimmons (25wins, 8Losses) is making his comeback at a new weight and stronger than ever. At 170lbs, Rob Kimmons has never lost a fight. He was never able to fight at 170 while in The UFC. Rob tells us that 170lbs is his new home and will be his ticket back to the UFC. Rob is well known for his slams, exciting stand-in-front-of-opponent stand-up game, and a nasty submission arsenal.

Tyler Stinson (24Wins, 9Losses) is a striker with pinpoint accuracy that has competed at the highest level in Showtime’s Strikeforce. His carreer includes six knockouts in under one minute. has been knocking people out left and right looking for that first call. Both of these guys are bangers, love the stand-up game, and have huge KO power. These are two of the most exciting fighters that have EVER come out of Kansas City, E-V-E-R! Tyler is known for his devastating KO power, the ability to keep the fight standing up where he wants it, and finishing his opponents.

The Co-Main Event includes Bellator’s Kelvin Tiller (5-0) facing off against a tough Chris Henning. Athletes like this come along rarely. Kelvin Tiller’s very first pro-fight, he took on a 13-1 fighter against the advice of many. Few gave him a chance to win this, but Kelvin knew he had what it takes. A Bellator Veteran looking to make his way into The UFC, he will look to make a statement against a very tough Chris Henning.

When no one wanted to fight Kelvin Tiller, Chris Henning was lobbying for the fight. Chris's record does not tell the whole story about his mma career which has included battles with UFC vets. Rob Kimmons says about Chris "He is one of the toughest dudes I have ever fought". On the social media channels, no one is giving Chris a chance to win this fight. He says "good". He is ready to shock the world
