ARTICLE EXCERPT: At 33 years old, Randy Kopchinsky decided it was now or never. The Kalispell resident boxed for quite a few years and trained in Muay Thai for a stretch, but he had never stepped foot in the caged realm of mixed martial arts.
Kopchinsky joined a growing legion of local fighters and it led him to where he is today, coaching up-and-comers and preparing for his first official MMA fight.
Training out of Straight Blast Gym of Montana in downtown Kalispell, Kopchinsky will make his MMA debut on July 27 at the latest Fight Force Kalispell Kombat. He’s one of 22 fighters scheduled to enter the cage at Majestic Valley Arena. Fights begin at 7:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased either at the event or at SBG on the corner of First Avenue East and Fourth Street East.
