On Friday December 1st, 2017, the Mixed Martial Arts club (AKA MMA club) and the Maker’s Union came together for the Fall semester’s Fight Night. The event featured two sets of fights: one involving MMA club members sparring, wrestling, and boxing, while the other featured BattleBots created by Maker’s Union members. The BattleBots were built on a $50 budget and the winners were given a trophy, 3D printed in the IDEAWORKS makerspace. Admission was $5, which included pizza and soft drinks, along with a chance at winning a duffel bag.
