As blogged by Mark La Monica Wednesday morning on Newsday's MMA-themed "Fightin' Words," a pair of renowned fighters will be on Long Island in late March.

Jay Hieron of Strikeforce and Martin Kampmann from the UFC will both be at Bellmore Kickboxing MMA on Saturday, Mar. 27 from noon to 3 p.m. to give a training seminar.

For afficionados and beginners looking to attend the event, Ryan LaFlare, a fellow mixed martial artist and native Long Islander, posted information to Facebook. According to the Facebook event guest list, Gian Villante, who recently won the Ring of Combat heavyweight title, will be in attendance. (As we know, take Facebook guest lists with a grain of salt.)

Luckily, if you can't make it on the 27th, La Monica listed three other events that both Hieron and Kampmann will be at throughout the month.
