Oklahoma firefighters will take on Oklahoma police officers in the fifth annual Smoke and Guns charity MMA and boxing event scheduled Saturday, April 21, at the BOK Center.
Tulsa's best will go toe-to-toe in the ring to benefit the Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp and Oklahoma Special Olympics. A news release said more than $30,000 was donated to the two organizations in Smoke and Guns' fourth year.

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
