BAY CITY, VICHIGAN

MARK POWELL\ Special To the Daily
Tough Man Contest
IN BAY CITY, MICHIGAN, THERE ARE 105
BARS, MORE BARS PER CAPITA THAN ANY OTHER
CITY IN MICHIGAN. THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF
BRAWLS IN THE BACK PARKING LOTS OF THESE
BARS. ART DORE, A SUCCESSFUL BAY CITY

MARK POWELL\ Special To the Daily

ENTREPRENEUR AND OWNER OF SEVERAL CITY
BARS, STARTED THE TOUGH MAN CONTEST
ABOUT A DECADE AGO TO USE THIS TAVERN
AGGRESSION AS GRAND EVENT MATERIAL. IN
ITS FIRST YEARS, FIGHTERS USED THE EVENT TO
TAKE PERSONAL VENDETTAS AWAY FROM THE
PARKING LOTS AND INTO THE RING. TODAY,
THERE MAY NOT BE MUCH OF THAT REVENGE
AND SCRAP-FIGHT ATTITUDE LEFT, FIGHTERS
TRAIN HARD YEAR-ROUND IN BAY CITY, HOPING
TO LAND A SPOT AS A TOUGH MAN FINALIST IN
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, BEFORE A PAY PER VIEW
NATIONAL TV AUDIENCE. AT THIS CONTEST,
HOWEVER, THE WOMEN WHO GOT INTO THE RING
WERE THE BIGGEST CROWD-PLEASERS, WITH
THEIR NO-HOLDS-BARRED STYLE. So IT IS LEFT
FOR YOU TO DECIDE, CAN THE TOUGHMAN BE A
WOMAN?
