The very best of MMA in Minnesota was on display on Saturday night as Driller Promotions/Sterling Entertainment Group provided what might have been the event of the year in St. Paul's Crowne Plaza hotel. 

Throwdown at the Crowne featured co-main events including the long-awaited bout between Dan Moret and Damion Hill, as well as a battle of giants between Brett Murphy and Raphael Butler for the brand new Minnesota heavyweight championship.

The Driller/SEG shows have been getting rave reviews all year, but none were better than this.

From beginning to end of the 14-fight card, fans got their money's worth and then some. The co-main events delivered in exciting fashion and the undercard might have been the best we've seen in quite some time.

If you're interested in watching the event for yourself, check out the Driller Promotions/Sterling Entertainment Group Throwdown at the Crowne live stream replay. Be advised, though, that the commentary is "extra colorful" for this one.
