Getting into the octagon for an MMA fight is a dream for many men and woman.

One Valley veteran is getting to do just that on Saturday night, but his motivation goes much deeper than fame and glory, and it's what he's doing after the fight that has a lot of people talking.

Dustin Logan's first MMA fight will also be his last. He's set to retire on Saturday.

That's because he's donating one of his kidneys to his father and won't step back into the octagon again.

When he found out his dad was sick, he says it was a no brainer about what to do.

"My dad's my best friend," he said. 

The U.S. Army veteran says he's excited and ready for the match. 

It's happening at Wild Horse Pass Casino at 7:30 pm. For tickets, click here.
