Here’s why mixed martial arts are so much cooler than other forms of professional fighting: While other matches are fought inside a measly ring, these guys throw it down inside a cage. See a series of special MMA cage fights, with a main event pitting Bill Smallwood against Hobart native “Ko-Kid” Stafford, 8 p.m. Friday at Farmers Public Market, 311 S. Klein Ave. Tickets are $25-$50. Visit ticketstorm.com.
