Mixed Martial Arts bouts scheduled for Havelock

Al "Bloodbath" McGrath doesn’t mince words.

He minces faces.

The 38-year-old Havelock carpenter will be doing what he loves the most on Saturday, kicking some middle-weight tail.

McGrath will be fighting in the 185-point weight class against former King of Jacksonville title belt holder Mark Holbrook at the Primus II event sponsored by Premier Martial Arts in Havelock.

McGrath doesn’t have any ill words for his opponent.

"I don’t talk no junk. I just get in there," McGrath said between three-minute sparring rounds with trainer John Bryant last week.

"I just grew up fighting," McGrath said. "I grew up in a tough town and had to learn to fight."
