SALT LAKE CITY -- Bryon Russell says he will be ready with his shorts on at the Utah Flash home opener Dec. 7. The announcement came when Russell traveled to Utah to speak along with Flash owner Brandt Andersen at the first Maakoa company conference.

Andersen is putting up $100,000 for a one-on-one rematch between Michael Jordan and former Jazzman Bryon Russell.

"MJ started it and I'm going to finish it," Russell said referring to the rematch. "No offense to any of your 46 year-olds out there, but I am not losing to a 46 year old," said Russell.

The rematch is scheduled to take place Dec. 7 at the McKay Events Center in Orem, Utah. Russell and Jordan are slated for a one-on-one game at the halftime of the first Flash home game of the season.

"This is a great opportunity for charity, and the money will make a big difference for either of the winner's charities," said Flash owner Brandt Andersen.
