Training fighters is nothing new for Edmond Tarverdyan or Alberto Crane. Neither is standing center stage and competing. But when the roles are intertwined and come crashing to a head, things can get a little chaotic. Perhaps that's the theme for Saturday night's Lights Out Promotions “Chaos at the Casino 2” hybrid fighting event, which will feature a mix of muay Thai kickboxing, boxing and mixed martial arts, with Glendale's Crane and Tarverdyan set to compete against Daniel McWilliams and Dominic Gutierrez, respectively, as headliners of the card emanating from Hollywood Park and Casino.

TRACEY MILLER Some of my close neighbors have decided that the best way to party is to play Texas Hold'em. Apparently some of my friends are hiring groups for gambling. One group of my closest neighbors decided to give their 21-year-old daughter a birthday party she won't forget. Her mother and father paid about $600 to have a three-person group of hosts come to their back yard and open a casino. I was surprised when my friend and I walked up to the party.

Sevak “Silverback” Magakian had to be carried out of the Hollywood Park and Casino late Saturday night after his mixed-martial-arts fight. But as cornermen Karen Darabedyan and Roma Kalentaryan carried him out, Magakian had a victorious smile across his face. Very much a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest, Magakian prevailed in Lights Out Promotions' “Chaos at the Casino 3” main event, earning a very hard-fought unanimous decision over Chris Saunders in their three-round lightweight bout.
