Channing Tatum and Terrence Howard in 'Fighting' (Wallpaper) Channing Tatum fans near Del Mar, California should mark your calendars, because Chan and his 'Fighting' co-star Cung Le will be promoting the movie at "The Fight Expo" next month.

"The Fight Expo" is a massive two-day Mixed Martial Arts and Extreme Sports extravaganza and will be held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the weekend of March 21-22, 2009 from 10am - 6pm each day.

Most importantly, dreams will come true for 5 Make-A-Wish children!!! The event has chosen The Make-A-Wish Foundation of San Diego as its beneficiary with portions of proceeds from every ticket sold, charity auctions, and MMA seminars going to this worthwhile cause.

UFC announcer, Bruce Buffer, "The Voice of the Octagon," has joined the team to create a very special event for five Make-A-Wish children suffering from life threatening illnesses, which will include the children being escorted around by American Gladiator and the World's Most Famous Female Fighter, Gina Carano, as well as getting publicly introduced by Bruce Buffer as Honorary Fighters in the Cage. They will also have an opportunity to meet their favorite MMA Superstars from a group including Brandon Vera, Joe Stevenson, Jake Shields, Cung Le, TUF Season 8 finalist Vinny Magalhães, Eliot Marshall, the Tapout Crew, Dean Lister, and many more.

Before March 10th, fans can take advantage of the early bird ticket prices. A One Day pass is $20, a weekend pass is $25, kids from age 12 - 17 cost $5, and children under 12 are free at the door.
