ABOUT US

September 2016 sees us celebrate the seven-year anniversary of our inaugural event. Having started as a purely local show for Northamptonshire based athletes to compete upon, we’ve built an unparalleled platform across multiple domestic locations, selling out wherever we go. We adhere to two firm principles:

Safety: Our protocols are borne from the experience of running over 30 events. Fighter safety is of paramount importance. We follow the rules set out by ISKA. In addition to this, we work in conjunction with our Close Protection partners to ensure that all patrons enjoy our events in a safe and calm environment.

Matchmaking discipline: Nobody likes to see a one-sided contest; therefore, we thoroughly research and skillfully match our athletes before booking them on our cards. We have longstanding relationships with gyms and clubs nationwide, as they’re comfortable in the knowledge that we will provide the right opponents for their fighters.
