EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River Derby Track held the Northwoods Combat Challenge Saturday night.
A dozen Mixed Martial Arts bouts were on the card.
Hundreds of fans enjoyed the action under the big tent.
In the Main Event - Stef Schneider of Sugar Camp faced Missy Pontbraind from Norway, MI.
The 3-round bout went to the scorecards.
Schneider fell by unanimous decision.
"I went in there swinging," Schneider explains. "But I was winded and worn out. By the third round, I just lost my power. I just decided I was going to hang in there for the three rounds. Ended up losing by a decision. The crowd was definitely there cheering for me. Very happy with that."
It was a big night for several Northwoods competitors. The card held the first ever Border Battle - pitting athletes from Wisconsin against Michigan. But not everyone's night was measured by who had their hand raised.

RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
