      Local MMA pro trains for big bout

      Tim Goodwin has been a professional mixed marshal arts fighter for two years.

      Columbia native Tim Goodwin is one of a handful of professional fighters partaking in "Caged Chaos" this Saturday. The mixed marshal arts bout begins at 7:00 at the Jamil Temple in Columbia.

      MMA is a combination of kick-boxing, wrestling, and jujitsu. The sport just became legal in South Carolina last year.

      "Its the fastest growing sport in the world," says Mark Mills owner of Columbia Martial Arts. "Just setting up this event, its hard to find an open weekend," says Mills.
