Tulsa police and firefighters duke it out for charity

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police officers and firefighters squared off in a mixed martial arts fighting event called Smoke and Guns.

The event is for charity and took place Saturday night at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa.

Police were fighting to raise money for the Special Olympics. Firefighters are funding the Firefighter Burn Camp with their winnings.

Both organizations receive a donation, no matter who wins.

Police and firefighters came from as far away as Maryland to compete against each other.

COVID stopped the event for the past two years. Now, organizers hope Smoke and Guns 7 will be the biggest one yet.
