Storley, Winn among ex-wrestlers at Sioux Falls Fight Night 1

At least four former college wrestlers -- including up-and-coming MMA fighters Logan Storley and Deron Winn -- will be on the card at the LFA's "Sioux Falls Fight Night 1" mixed martial arts event in late April.

This MMA event sponsored by Legacy Fighting Alliance -- featuring nine pro fights and three amateur bouts -- will take place at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. on Saturday, April 27.

Other former collegiate mat stars on the card include MMA veterans David Michaud and Sid Bice.

Michaud will face Ultimate Fighting Championships vet Jake Lindsey in a 170-pound main event. Michaud brings a 10-3 pro record to the event.

Augustana University (S.D.) mat alum Bice will take on Cody Land in a 125-pound flyweight main event match. Bice is 6-1 in MMA competition.

Storley, a four-time NCAA Division I All-American at University of Minnesota, will face Andres Murray in a three-round welterweight (170 pound) fight. It will be Storley's first pro MMA bout in a year, having made short work of his opponents in his previous four fights, while Murray is 2-0.

Winn, a two-time NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) champ for St. Louis Community College, Meramec, is on the preliminary card at Sioux Falls Fight Night 1. Winn had recently noted on Facebook that he did not know who he would be going up against in two weeks; then on Sunday evening, Winn told InterMat, "Deven Fisher is my opponent for now." (Fisher is 3-8 in a decade-long MMA career.) Winn made an impressive pro MMA debut last month in the San Francisco Bay area, destroying an experienced opponent in less than 30 seconds of their light-heavyweight (205 pounds) bout.
