Boxing promoter Skip Kelp and female MMA fighter and entrepreneur Kim Couture’s “A Night of Combat II” will be taking place tonight at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will feature many Xtreme Couture fighters, and will also have an appearance by Randy Courture himself. Don’t get carried away, Randy will not be fighting, however he and a star-studded cast of other MMA fighters will be in attendance for an autograph signing an hour before the event kicks off.

From 5-6 PM PST fans can line up to get autographs from the aforementioned Couture, Wanderlei Silva, Andre Arloski, Gina Carano, Gray Maynard, Tyson Griffin, Karo Parisyan, Josh Burkman, Mike Whitehead, Sam Stout, Martin Kampmann, Frank Trigg and Clay Guida.

As a special bonus, boxing’s most controversial fighter, Mike Tyson, will also be on hand.

Affliction Entertainment was initially slated to hold their second MMA promotion at the Thomas & Mack Center, however when they rescheduled their “Day of Reckoning” event, Kim Couture and Kelp stepped right in to fill the MMA void that Affliction left in their wake.

IF you are in the Las Vegas area, it is not too late to buy tickets. Ticket prices are reasonably priced between $15-$50, however if you are unable to attend the event, HDNet will be airing the card on October 17 via tape delay.

Here are the weigh in results from yesterday:

Stephanie Palmer (116) vs. Elena Reid (115)
